Not, of course, that there’s anything about Islam that might have encouraged this sort of behavior. If guilty, he was probably the sort of man that was already inclined to raping, regardless of religious affiliation . The question here, however, is: did converting to that one religion that treats women as inferiors on the one hand, and seducers on the other — not to mention objects and animals — have anything to do with his actions, even if by merely placating his “conscience”?
“U.S. investigates CIA sex allegations in Algeria,” from Reuters, January 28:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States is looking into allegations the CIA station chief in Algeria raped at least two Muslim women after lacing their drinks with a drug, a State Department spokesman said on Wednesday.
A report by ABC News said the CIA officer, a convert to Islam, was sent back to the United States after the women came forward with the charges in September.[…]
ABC News reported the two women said the separate sexual assaults took place at the official station chief residence.
The network reported the discovery of more than a dozen videotapes showing the CIA officer engaged in sex acts with other women had led the Justice Department to widen the investigation to include Egypt, where the officer had been posted earlier in his career.
