Contrasting views on Slavery: Cleveland vs. Saudi Arabia

When Amanda Berry, Georgina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were rescued from the house where they had been held captive for a decade, America’s reaction was two-fold: Joy over their rescue and contempt for their captors. That contempt was also expressed by the uncle of the three men responsible.

Via Daily Mail:

Also struck by the allegations, the suspects’ uncle, Julio Castro, told CNN: ‘I never want to see them again. For me, it’s bad on one side and good on the other side.’

Moreover, it’s not just that the bad guys are rightfully demonized, even by family members in America. It’s also that those who come to the aid of the victimized are rightfully recognized as the good Samaritans they are. Here is a local ABC 5 reporter in Cleveland interviewing Charles Ramsey, the man who rescued the young women (notice it’s gotten nearly half a million views in less than 24 hours):

Is it a good thing to be afflicted with Islamophobia? Get the new book from Walid Shoebat, The Case FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA: Jihad by the Word; America’s Final Warning.

Contrast that with the case of Homaidan al-Turki, a Saudi national who is currently serving time in a Colorado prison for essentially doing to a young Indonesian girl (minor) what was done to the three ladies in Cleveland. She was enslaved.

Yet, in Saudi Arabia, it is al-Turki who is held up as the hero to the point of prominent, wealthy Saudis calling on Barack Obama to release the convicted sex offender:

    I’ll be glad when all Saudis are banned from this country. I’ll be overjoyed when the truth about the “religion of peace” is made known to every American with every gory detail.

    Yes, thank you for comparing Islam to our Judeo-Christian way of thought. These kinds of opposites lead me to conclude that Islam is a manifestation of the occult; a twisted version of right and wrong.

    I thought of this very same contrast. Though we are obviously a greatly more moral culture than Saudi Arabia, how is it that the news media wasn’t all over the Saudi’s and THEIR sex slaves? They like stories of “rescue” and stories of “sex scandal”….Am I missing something, or is it just Walid and a scattered few others who will point out our Saudi problem??

    The arrogance and lawlessness of these Saudi’s is
    beyond belief.
    They are no better than the monsters
    that held those 3 young ladies.
    Much worse, because they think that they are better
    than everyone else because of their money. Have no
    shame whatsoever. Think they are above the law.
    Kind of reminds me of our president.
