IMF Chief, Front Runner of 2012 Presidential of France Arrested

International Monetary Fund, IMF, chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn on sexual assault accusations on Sunday. Strauss-Kahn was set to appear in a New York court on Monday where his lawyers said he would deny all charges against him.
Strauss-Kahn was set to appear in court on Monday after agreeing to “scientific and forensic examination”, one of his lawyers, William Taylor, said.

He “intends to vigorously defend these charges and denies any wrongdoing”, according to another lawyer, Benjamin Brafman.

Brafman and Taylor are high-profile celebrity lawyers. Taylor defended Strauss-Kahn in 2008 in a case involving an extra-marital affair with a female colleague at the IMF. He also represented Michael Jackson when he was accused of child sex and rapper Sean P Diddy Combs on arms and corruption charges.

  1. If the accusations are true, these highlight the terrible consequences of sex addiction.

    Human sexual desire may be insatiable, the more we indulge in it the stronger it may grow, until it destroys us in one form or the other. Unbridled attempts at quenching the sexual thirst is like putting out a fire with gasoline, it only burns with stronger flames!

    We should judge any set of teachings, be they secular or religious by the golden priciple given to us by Jesus, may peace be upon him:

    By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. (Matthew 7:16-20)

    The detailed teachings mentioned in the Holy Quran about chastity are not matched by any other scripture. For details from the Holy Quran, see the book, the Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam:
