Saudi Rapist Linked to Al Qaeda May Be Released After Serving Less Than 1/3 of his Sentence

Homaidan al-Turki did his part to introduce Muslim culture to America by keeping his own sex slave. Colorado authorities and the FBI proved not to be very understanding despite Homaidan al-Turki's status as a VIS (Very Important Saudi).
Al-Turki not only kept a woman as a slave for four years while repeatedly raping her, but he also ran an Islamic publishing house with the copyright to the works of Al Qaeda kingpin Anwar Al-Awlaki. Naturally Al-Turki did what every single Muslim charged with any crime does, he cried Islamophobia.
Homaidan al-Turki argued that the United States was attacking Islamic customs such as not paying your slave and controlling her life. "We are Muslim. We are different. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors is a focal point of the prosecution," he testified.
And that certainly is true. Sexual abuse, "retention of wages" and controlling the legal status of foreign labors are common practices in Saudi Arabia. Because Saudi Arabia had legal slavery until not that long ago. The United States does not.
Considering how the Saudis treat women, this is not terribly reassuring.
Since Homaidan Al-Turki is a VIS (Very Important Saudi), the Saudis put on a full court press on his behalf. While American governments abandon their own people, the Saudis do not. And there is a very important lesson in that. The Saudis, the Kuwaitis and the other Gulfies have spent a lot of money extracting their terrorists from Gitmo and back into their "custody" for the revolving door of terrorism.
Now Al-Turki is about to benefit from the same privilege.
But apparently it is possible here.
Prison officials have approved the transfer of Homaidan al-Turki back to Saudi Arabia after serving less than 1/3 of his sentence.
There are no Islamophobes to see here. The new Obamerica is respectful of Islamic customs such as slavery and rape. If you're linked to Islamists, we won't pay attention. If you rape your slave, we'll send you back home.
Considering Colorado's Democratic governor and legislature, good luck with that. There's no justice to see here. Just complicity in the ongoing Muslim War on Women. Because to do otherwise, to stand up against the Islamic belief that women are inferior creatures who can be abused and enslaved would be Islamophobic.
