Stop it you’re turning me on Mark Steyn comments on the Tarek Fatah/Wafa Sultan thingie:
So what does Ms Corbella mean when she says the “evidence makes it clear that this is not true”? No, Aisha wasn’t nine? Or no, it wasn’t rape because it was consensual? It was all very pleasant and relaxed – lights down low, Johnny Mathis on the hi-fi, or more likely the Jonas Brothers. Hitherto, most western feminists have taken the position that a nine-year old “woman” is not in a position to give consent. So what exactly is Ms Corbella saying?
We’re not arguing about the past but about the Muslim world now, and Canada the day after tomorrow.
