God dislikes beauty contests

UPDATED: Commenter “Jam” makes a good point. Possible, this crime might not be related to Sharia law.

    Her battered body was buried in a forest and was found a week after she disappeared, the Daily Mail reported.

    One of the three youths – a 16-year-old named Bihal Gaziev – is under arrest. He told police that Koren had “violated the laws of Sharia”, and that he has no regrets about her death.

    I usually don’t trust The Daily Mail and today is no exception. I did a bit of hunting around and I’m finding accounts from the Ukrainian government that she was a Christian rather than a Muslim and also police are saying they only suspect one individual, another student, who they say robbed and possibly raped her and then beat her to death by using a stone against her head.

    HuffPo reported than Sharia punishment being enforced by stoning is unheard of in the region. Even if it was, her being a Christian would mean that Sharia dress codes don’t apply to her. Also stoning, according to Sharia law, is the penalty for adultery and not the punishment for immodesty so it would make even less sense. Immodesty, according to the law of that “religion of peace” requires 100 lashes.

    Unless of course Muslims know as little about their religion as Christians know about theirs, in which case it would be perfectly predictable that the wrong barbaric punishment would be meted out by a stupid child with stupid parents.

    Anyway, there are too many funny smells about this story for me to accept that it was more than another example of how every three to five minutes a woman is beaten or raped.
