"Abdullahi was criticized by the Arizona chapter of the Center for Arabic Islamic Relations, saying the allegations have no basis in the Islamic faith." This is the low state of journalism these days. The "Center for Arabic Islamic Relations" is most likely the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which once again the mainstream media goes to without any mention of its jihad terror arrests, ties to Hamas, etc.
And anyway, CAIR is lying again: what Mohamed Abdullahi did has everything to do with Islam. In Islam, women are possessions of men. If they get out of line, they are to be beaten (Quran 4:34). If they're raped, it's their fault, and they bear the "dishonor." All this is what Abdullahi did. It was quintessentially Islamic.
A Muslim woman expected to enter an arranged marriage in Phoenix was raped, beaten, and sexually assaulted by her groom-to-be, after she refused to marry the man, Fox 10 News Phoenix reported on Wednesday.
Mohamed S. Abdullahi, 30, who was arrested on Tuesday, reportedly faces sexual assault and kidnapping charges. Police referred to the alleged victim as a young adult.
The report said that the families agreed on a "Nikah," a formal Islamic marriage. The woman, who apparently had no desire to be with Abdullahi, ran away, but returned about 15 days later to finish school.
Police are investigating details leading up to the alleged assault, investigating whether the woman's Somali family forced her into the apartment where police say she was raped and held against her will.
The Arizona Republic reported that the woman was brought to the apartment Monday.
One neighbor told WAFB.com that she saw the woman shaking and crying as she was dragged onto the sidewalk. She said she would have called police if she was aware of the situation.
Once in the apartment, police reportedly said Abdullahi placed a mattress in front of the door to prevent her from leaving. The alleged victim eventually managed to send a message to her friend from her tablet, WAFB.com reported.
Abdullahi was criticized by the Arizona chapter of the Center for Arabic Islamic Relations, saying the allegations have no basis in the Islamic faith.
