    Islamic law permits the possession of concubines, or sex slaves.  This has been demonstrated countless times, including through Islamic clerics quoting Islamic scriptures, and through ordinary Muslims, past and present, acting on it.Boko Haram members stand if front of “Allahu Akbar” banner That said, Islamic sanctioned sex-slavery does not perturb the Western world simply because the powers-that-be—specifically academia, media, and government—ignore it, and all other unsavory phenomena associated with Islam, out of existence.Interesting, therefore, are the responses from the authorities—comical one might even say—when one of these everyday anecdotes actually does surface to the general public.Enter the recent abduction...

    An unused, unstamped train ticket helped lead to charges against a Seattle man in the abduction and killing of a 7-year-old Illinois girl in 1957.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti—In a closed courtroom in one of the few government buildings still standing here, Laura Silsby and nine other American missionaries were charged Thursday with abducting children from this earthquake-ravaged capital. When the proceeding was done, the 40-year-old from a mountain valley in Idaho walked out of Le Tribunal de Paix, past a scrum of microphones, cameras and seething Haitians and into a government minivan with a co-defendant. As they waited to return to a fetid cell with mattresses on a concrete floor, they appeared to pray.

    For Stephanie McIver, Christmas 2003 will be more precious than any she could ever have imagined. For the first time in three years, the Stanford University Hospital psychologist will spend the holiday with her children -- a son and daughter she feared she had lost to an ugly international abduction. ``Both of the kids are so enamored of Santa Claus,'' said McIver, 38, beaming about the approaching festivities. ``And of course I'm loving every wonderful moment.'' McIver's enchantment this season stands in contrast to the years she suffered as a ``left-behind parent'' in one of more than 200,000 annual family...

    State officials are worried a 12-year-old Sandy boy will die from a rare form of bone cancer if he does not receive chemotherapy soon. But his parents apparently are more concerned that the chemotherapy will leave their son sterile. Barbara and Daren Jensen have fled Utah with their son, against the advice of their attorney and in violation of a juvenile court judge's Aug. 8 order placing the boy into state Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) custody, according to charges filed Friday in 3rd District Court. The Jensens face one count of child kidnapping, a first-degree felony punishable...

    December 12, 2002, 10:40 a.m. The Saudis’ Best Friend State Department gives House of Saud free pass, again, on child abductions. ongress made little progress Wednesday in its attempt to unravel a web of Saudi deceit on a number of child-abduction cases involving American women and children trapped in the desert prison. The three (American) spin doctors on the Saudi payroll who had ducked an earlier hearing were there, but were worse than unhelpful and unresponsive — they were complicit in the Saudi crimes. And refraining from putting any pressure on the House of Saud was the Saudi royal family's...

    Police have confirmed they are checking to see if David L. Fuller, 47, the man who apparently kidnapped and killed a Faulkner County girl, may have done the same thing to other children. Kacie Rene Woody, of the Holland area northeast of Conway, and Fuller were found dead Wednesday night in a storage unit nearly 24 hours after the girl vanished from her home. "We can't help but believe the possibility is strong that he did this on other occasions É considering the amount of time and planning that went into this crime," said Major Mark Elsinger of the Conway...

    Right now, I want every parent out there to find the nearest mirror, gaze deeply into his or her own eyes, and repeat after me: There is no wild summer epidemic of child snatching. I will stop letting Larry King make me hysterical. I will not turn my child into a nervous, paranoid freak terrified of her own shadow. Remember last year's summer of the shark? Welcome to the summer of the abduction. All it took was a couple of gruesome kidnappings in California for the media to visualize a story with the potential to whip viewers into a coast-to-coast...
