Traditional Muslim Values

A Saudi man was sentenced to 28 years to life in prison in Colorado for enslaving and sexually assaulting an Indonesian women he and his wife kept at $2 a day as housekeeper and nanny- for 4 years. Homaidan Al-Turki did not apologize for his crimes because:
"Your honor, I am not here to apologize, for I cannot apologize for things I did not do and for crimes I did not commit," Homaidan Al-Turki told the judge in a voice choked with emotion. "Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors was the focal point of the prosecution. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors."

Traditional Muslim behaviors? Slavery, sexual assault? Thanks for the heads up there Homaidan.
