So her story is not unusual after all: two million Asian maids are subjected to physical abuse, beating, sexual harassment, rape in Gulf states. Some of them die as a result.
The record of abuse, Sharia court "justice" and the practice of dhimmitude is flourishing in the Middle East. Even in cases of compensation for accidental death or murder, there is the heavy, cruel hand of Mohammed. In Saudi Arabia for example, what the heirs receive is determined according to religion first, and then to gender.
- The families of Muslim men receive the "full compensation amount, which is 100,000 riyals (almost $27,000.00).
- Christian and Jewish males are worth about half that.
- Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, etc., -- so-called "polytheistic" religions -- are only one-sixteenth as valuable as Muslims
- And of course, the women in each category above are worth half the amount in the twisted calculus of Islam.
More or less.
