The United Arab Emirates [UAE] is one of the biggest destinations for men and women, predominantly from South and Southeast Asia, trafficked for the purposes of labor and commercial-sexual exploitation. Migrant workers, who comprise more than 90 percent of the UAE's private sector workforce, are recruited from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, China, and the Philippines. Women from some of these countries travel willingly to work as domestic servants or administrative staff, but some are subjected to conditions indicative of forced labor, including unlawful withholding of passports, restrictions on movement, non-payment of wages, threats, or physical or sexual abuse. continued here>>

Deep blue brothels', that exactly what the Syrian and Jordanian under-cover brothels are named, where up to 2010, more than 90,000 Iraqi females had been trapped into prostitution, either by trafficking racket or so-called lovers. According to estimation, Syrian and Jordanian brothel alone house more than 400,000 sex workers, whose main customers are Saudis. Governments are fully aware of such sex rackets, which operate mostly behind the curtain of 'Family House' or 'Boutique Shops'. In Damascus, there are at least two large brothels, which run under the cover of 'Therapy Center'. Syrian law allows establishment of nightclubs, pubs and bars. In recent years, there had also been mushroom growth of 'Discos', which in most cases are cabarets. continued here>>

Mary Doreen, a Western nurse, who lived in Saud Arabia for many years, wrote a book on her experiences while working at King Faisal Specialized Hospital and Research Center. Describing the minds of Saudi men, she wrote: "Some Saudis believe that they must have sex five times a day, either before or after prayer. When a woman is menstruating, she is considered 'unclean', and it is forbidden for a man to have sexual relations with her. If all his wives are menstruating at the same time, [which frequently happens when several women live together], it is a man's duty to seek sexual gratification outside of the home. A proud Saudi man wouldn't defile a Saudi woman, and if a slave or servant or foreign national prostitute is unavailable, he thinks nothing of traveling to Egypt, UAE or Thailand. Sexually transmitted disease is rampant within the country." Doreen also wrote quoting Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a revered religious clergy in Saudi Arabia, who said "is part of jihad and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam." continued here>>

Interestingly enough, though Saudis officially abolished slavery in 1962 at the face of international outcry, but many Muslims in the Arab world are now demanding return of the slavery system. While slavery is well established by Sharia rules, many Muslim scholars of today's world argue to accept the fact that sex slavery is also endorsed by Sharia. Sex slavery though sound to be something of bad taste to civilized people in the world, such slavery are even accepted by many of the Arab women, who believe their men must enjoy as many as concubines, made available through sex slavery for prolonged manhood and vigor. continued here>>

Islamic Republic of Iran proclaims to be one of the "purest Muslim and Arab nations in the world, where, the ruling clergymen claims, social crimes such as prostitution is totally non-existent. It is although known to many that in most of the Muslim nations in the world, where Sharia law is in practice, unimaginable barbarism is actually continuing under the garb of Islam, Koran and Sharia law, thus grossly violating democracy, human rights and rule of law. Women in particular are in the worst ever situation in every Muslim nation, as Koran gives inferior status to women in comparing to men. Iranian Regime has murdered numerous women by stoning since Ayatollah Khomeini seized power decades back, though such practice is not endorsed by Koran. Mir-Hosseini, an expert on Iranian family law at London's School of Oriental and African Studies says "Stoning is not a Quranic punishment. The punishment for any kind of sexual relations [outside of marriage] in the Quran is 100 lashes." continued here>>
