Q: How many Moslem men does it take to rape a woman? A: Five, one to commit the act, and four to witness the penetration. At least this is what is stated by David Lamb in _The Arabs - Journeys Beyond the Mirage_., pg. 119. One quotation on the Sharia should suffice: "A guilty verdict can be rendered only if there is a confession or if there are at least two male witnesses to the crime. Adultery and rape are proved only if four witnesses have seen the actual penetration, an occurrence that presumably does not happen often." And so we have a solution to the mystery of why Moslems do not commit rape. It is all in their definition of rape. Four males have to witness the PENETRATION, not just the "assumed" act. As long as you keep your sexual organs covered, an entire roomful of men can have sex with a woman against her wishes and it is still not rape. So whenever a Moslem tells you that his people are not committing rape, perhaps he means that only 3 men withessed the act of penetration, or perhaps it was done with their clothes on, or... You get the idea.
