Muslim Gets Wrist Slap for Multiple Rapes

A Libyan student who sexually assaulted seven girls and women in Melbourne has been jailed for more than five years.
Almahde Ahmad Atagore, 28, had been in Australia only a month and was having trouble adapting to the Australian culture when he committed the attacks, a court heard.
Atagore, who is a Muslim, was upset and sexually aroused at the way women in Australia dressed and behaved, the Victorian County Court heard [Tuesday].
Between August and September last year Atagore, who was in Australia on a Libyan government scholarship, embarked on a string of sexual assaults over four days in Mentone and at Flinders Street railway station.
His youngest victim was just 13.
The absurdly light sentence resulted from the link Judge Margaret Rizkalla astutely observed between "cultural issues" (i.e., Islam) and Atagore's crimes. Also, he was depressed, and apparently raping children helped cheer him up.
The horny Religion of Peacenik is eligible for parole after three years.
