Scorpions Drummer Jailed in Dubai on Charges of “Insulting Islam”

We’re always lectured about how Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance, but for some reason, Muslims seem to have a problem with actually being, you know, peaceful and tolerant. Scorpions drummer James Kottak just learned firsthand how tolerant Islam can be.

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.

Of course, maybe it’s Kottak’s own fault. Doesn’t he know that Islamic countries don’t allow you to exercise things like freedom of speech?
