Drummer From Rock Band “Scorpions” Jailed In Dubai For “Insulting Islam”


For peaceful purposes. Where are those winds of change many claimed were blowing across the Middle East during the Arab Spring? Compared to what the Qur’an says his punishment could be, he’s getting off relatively easy …

Qur’an Sura 33:57, 61, “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained … Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”

Associated Press – “Newspapers in the United Arab Emirates are reporting that the American drummer for the rock band Scorpions has been sentenced to one month in jail after being convicted of offensive behavior in Dubai.

The government-backed National newspaper reported Tuesday that James Kottak was convicted of insulting Islam, raising his middle finger and being under the influence of alcohol while in transit at Dubai airport.

The Gulf News daily says he was arrested April 3 en route from Russia to Bahrain, where the German band was scheduled to perform at a Formula One race. Kottak was a no-show at the April 5 concert.

The newspapers say Kottak admitted to drinking but denied other charges.

The Scorpions’ manager didn’t respond to requests for comment. Kottak’s local lawyer couldn’t immediately be reached.” Source – My Fox NY

    Why would anyone be surprised. So swearing is worse than being beaten to death. Furthermore why would anyone want to go to that hellhole.
