|Mohamed S. Abdullahi - forgot what country he is in|
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.
The situation more than warranted calling the police; a grown woman shaking, crying, and being dragged along. Good grief! Neighbors like that you don't need.
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.
CAIR may be right that it had no basis in Islamic faith, or, at least, in the Quran. But it had plenty of basis in Islamic culture. The girl, having been raped is no longer marriage material except to her rapist. Many rape victims in Islamic countries end up marrying their rapist as the only way to survive.

I suspect that was what the parents and the would-be groom were attempting to accomplish, not realizing that you can't get away with raping girls in America like you can in most Islamic countries. Abdullahi will likely spend much of the rest of his life in jail. The girl should abandon Islam and find a real man to marry.
