In Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Islamic world, this kind of behavior is broadly tolerated. Women are so devalued, men look to other men and boys for sexual pleasure. Also, the Qur’an promises not just virgins to the blessed, but boys like “scattered pearls”:
“Those are the ones brought near in the Gardens of Pleasure, a company of the former peoples and a few of the later peoples, on thrones woven, reclining on them, facing each other. There will circulate among them young boys made eternal with vessels, pitchers and a cup from a flowing spring.” — Qur’an 56:11-18
“And they will be given to drink a cup whose mixture is of ginger, a fountain within Paradise named Salsabeel. There will circulate among them young boys made eternal. When you see them, you would think them scattered pearls. And when you look there, you will see pleasure and great dominion.” — Qur’an 76:17-20

Isam Fathee Mohamed Rahmah, 51, of Durham, faces charges of first-degree kidnapping and indecent liberties with a child, Durham police said in a news release Friday.
Rahmah surrendered to authorities late Friday and is being held on a $1 million bond, according to Durham County records.
Authorities said two boys reported being sexually assaulted by Rahmah inside the truck in separate incidents, which happened in late October, FOX 8 reported.
The truck, a red Ford van, had pictures of Popsicles on the side and back and would frequently be seen in the neighborhood.
“It’s frightening. You don’t ever want to hear anything like this,” a mother who wished to remain unnamed told WNCN.
Another neighbor told the television station he bought ice cream from Rahmah before, and believes the 51-year-old might live in the truck.
“There were bags of clothes. He has covers and he has chips and everything,” Christian Aguilar said. “He always drives by here on Saturday and Sunday.”…
