Al-Wahsh made the remarks on national television in October in which he stating that it was Egyptians’ national duty to rape women who wear ripped jeans.

“Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?” Al-Wahsh said during the televised debate on the issue of prostitution on October 19. “I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”

    Might this be why so many taxi driver “lawyers” from certain backgrounds regularly get charged with rape?

      Typical of Islamic societies. Whereas in Western culture, inappropriate anger is usually viewed as a sign that a person is lacking in self discipline, as an indication of weakness, in the muslim world anger leading to loud yelling is considered the opposite: a sign of strength and power. He who yells loudest wins the argument, since their argument is then clearly superior.
