Did these woman have their Burka's on, maybe it was their fault?

Actually fact is in Egypt 75% of the sexual assault are with woman wearing Burkas, appears the perverted mind of the Muslim Egyptian is the root problem.

What about all the sexual assaults by catholic priests, shouldn't you clean your own house first before pointing the finger at other faiths?

Sexual assaults or sodomy among all groups is unacceptable and immoral. Regretfully sodomy has a home here among many straight people.

It's real simple. Rape is a cultural institution among muslims. They don't see anything wrong with it.

In this religion's lands, women are attacked and often stoned for disgracing their families by doing things like, showing their faces in public.

What is Islam.

Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding! Right you are Freddy, the board is yours, what category?

I'll take bizarre religious motivated behavior for $60.

To think Democrats say yes you can build a mosque, then claim a war on women, then you can teach same-sex traits to schoolchildren.
Your thoughts are welcomed.

Well, a war of sorts here I guess. The war on family, started in 1913 when the fed was created, so they could print money and credit out of thin air only then to draw men AND women away from the home and away from each other for the industrial revolution, among which was a revolution against the earth.
Then liberals shouted in every direction and said "the white man owes ya one come on down" then fdr started the welfare act. Take into account unions in the public sector and profiteering in the private sector and you have one of the most bass ackwards business models known to civilization.
Slowly and steadily people have been poisoning and not taking care of themselves in many ways and we wonder why healthcare is so expensive. I could go in so many directions but I don't want anyone to get any more dizzy than I am. I hope you see where I'm goin though. If women won't take a stand and say we're not putting up with this greed anymore so we're going to go home to care for family again, maybe the men will. In all honesty I think we're screwed regardless, all GREED, sickening!!!
Peace.

We did we jailed them, as far as I understand woman are pretty safe in St Peter's Square in Vatican city. Rapes in Middle East are many many times worse than any Western country and what is most shocking is many are not reported in he Middle East meaning is even worse than the numbers show. Islam is a disease of the mind, and causes uncivil behavior from the followers.

I will be a bold to speculate most of the assaults are by Muslims and not by Coptic Egyptians.

Whats pathetic is turning your head at the root cause to rape, therefore indirectly condoning it.

I have no shame pointing out atrocities in the world against other humans! We can only hope to stop it, and the only way is to find the rood problem. My guess, ISLAM!!!

an estimated 80 percent of Egyptian women now wear hijab. Interestingly 75% of all the women in Egypt who reported being sexually harassed were veiled at the time .

Mr. StatsCan; do you want to post the stats on sexual harrassment in the WEST for NON-VEILED women? You know, in the interest of impartiality and all that?

Mhmmm, I see;

Estimating the numbers

" ... a random survey of over 7,000 active Catholics in the U.S. and Canada found a closer ratio, that 1.7 percent of the females and 3.3 percent of the males had been sexually abused in childhood by a priest ..." -Psychology Today - Priest abuse male compared female victimization impact published May 20, 2010.

Using these numbers as a base whilst recognising that a substantial number of victims would have already left the church the following formula is used to calculate a low estimate of the number of sexual abuse victims in a given population of Catholics.

1.2 billion catholics
1.7% females abused = 10,404,000 [1.7% of 51.98% of the Catholic population]
3.3% males abused = 19,404,000 [3.3% of 48.02% of the Catholic population]

29,808,000 [combined males and females] Catholics identify themselves as having been sexually abused in childhood by a Catholic priest.

This formula can be applied to any population.
Estimate number of Australian Catholics sexually abused in their childhood by Catholic priests.
Australia 5,239,000 million catholics (2006 Census)
Estimated number of survivors who have been "finalized" (completed church or legal process) in Australia between 1000 and 4000.
1.7% females abused = 45,422
3.3% males abused = 84,715

are you turning your head on this? Your allegations are always biased, Jan.....that's why no one takes them seriously. Maybe you should upload your wife on the above facts or maybe she will find them on her 'walk to Jesus' all by herself.

Here, let me help you out a bit;

About Victims
•44% of victims are under age 18
•80% are under age 30



Sexual Assault Numbers
•Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted
•There is an average of 207,754 victims (age 12 or older) of sexual assault each year



Reporting to Police
•54% of sexual assaults are not reported to the police
•97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail


About Rapists
•Approximately 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim
•38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance

and further to this;

http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap_per...

Seems I have more of a chance of being raped or sexually harrassed in a traditional Northern European country than anywhere else in the world....including the States, Canada AND Egypt.

Looks like we have something called statistics and protection of women who are raped. In KSA and any muslim countries we know what will happen to a raped woman.

In Marocco the rapist can even marry the woman he raped.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/14/amin...

In KSA women who are raped get severely punished.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qatif_rape_case

Who the hell can expext any reliable statistics from such countries?

Furthermore most rapes in Denmark are MUSLIM raping nonmuslims. Why? How come? If you ask me it's pretty goddamn simple. Muslims are brainwashed with their religion and look down upon nonmuslims because this is how they are brought up. This is even the public discourse in most islamic countries.

And please don't come and tell my Denmark is more dangerous than any islamic country. I lived in both parts of the world and muslims are fcuked up when it comes to women.
