The immediate response from the state Muslim group was to condemn the assault -- but they went further and said the savage's actions "have no basis in the Islamic faith." Not true.
Disobedience to the man, especially a man who has been promised in marriage, demands a beating. According to the Quran (4:34), "Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others ... admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great."
The rape is something else. Islam forbids the rape of Muslim women, yet the rape of non-Muslims is perfectly fine, and, in fact, it was condoned by Mohammad himself. Although Muslim women are not supposed to be raped, it happens all the time as witnessed by the carnage left by ISIS, Boko Haram and Al Qaeda, whose fighters rape just about everyone -- and everything -- in sight.

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.
