Ah, the glitz, the glamour, the horrific double standards and laws that place every rape victim, men and women, face terrible consequences if they fall victim to this crime. This is the “Utopia” that is wooing our largerst hedge funds, and Stock exchanges. The Milken Foundation, who stands for a strong Israel, is doing business with the UAE and Dubai. The danger of holding hands with this country is that the laws we assume will protect us, will actually put us in danger. Becoming a rape victim in Dubai can be a jail term, unless you are lucky enough to leave the country. Every dollar invested in Dubai enforces the power of the Sheik and the theocracy that runs this Islamic state.

Dubai Deports Jailed Filipina Raped Victim
January 1, 2008 12:34 a.m. EST
Manila, Philippines (AHN) – An 18-year-old Filipina who was raped by her Tunisian supervisor but was sentenced to jail by a Dubai court, arrived in the Philippines on Monday, New Year’s Eve, after she was deported by Dubai authorities.
The girl, identified only as Rowena, (not her real name), arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in the Philippine capital of Manila a t 5 p.m. local time, from Dubai, after a two-hour stop-over from Hong Kong, China.
Records show Rowena was working for a French restaurant in Dubai. She reported to Dubai authorities in August that her Tunisian supervisor raped her. However, the Tunisian boss was able to report the incident to the police and said Rowena was mauled by fellow Filipinos.
The police then charged the Filipina with having an illegal affair with her boss, drinking and giving false statement. A Dubai court sentenced her to three months in jail in November after finding her guilty of the three charges.
