The Middle Eastern War of 2012, which started on 7 February 2012, is the name of the collection of wars currently taking place in the Middle East. As of November 2012, three independent conflicts are being fought:
- Persia-Kazakh War
- Operation Restoring Dignity
- Fortification of Zion
The War began as an invasion of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia by the Allied States in February 2012. Italy and the United Arab Emirates were the only willing allies to assist the Allied States at the time, and formed part of Task Force Dignity with the ASA.
The idea of invasion was sparked over the course of several events where several Islamic countries, mainly Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have violated human and women's rights. After most of these countries failed to respect ultimatums given by the Allied States as well as other members of the international community, the idea of occupation was discussed.
In early November 2012, the Persian Empire and Kingdom of Arabia were formed, which completely changed the nature of the War. Almost immediately the Persia-Kazakh War began as Persia attempted to annex the Republic of Kazakhstan. Operation Restoring Dignity, which was originally the main campaign, is now the invasion of what used to be Yemen and Oman. The Fortification of Zion, as called by the Muslim world, is American forces, mainly of the USA and CSA, setting up defenses around Israel.
In the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region, there are an estimated 1.2 million women, mainly Asians, who are employed as domestic servants. According to the independent human rights group Middle East Watch, female migrant workers in these countries often suffer beatings and sexual assaults at the hands of their employers. The police allegedly are often of little help. In many cases, women who report being raped by their employers are sent back to the employer -- or are even assaulted at the police station.
In many of these countries, sexual assault by a husband on his wife is not considered to be a crime: a wife is expected to submit. It is thus very difficult in practice for a woman to prove that sexual assault has occurred unless she can demonstrate serious injury. The report of the Special Rapporteur noted that light sentences in sexual assault cases send the wrong message to perpetrators and to the public at large: that female sexual victimization is unimportant.
Several Middle Eastern countries also arrest women - locals and foreigners alike - after they have been raped, for adultery. This was the case with Alicia Gali, an Australian woman who traveled to the Middle East, got raped and was arrested in 2011. The Allied States also responded to this by warning countries of the Middle East that they are "in the eyes of Texas."
Saudi Arabia's Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice
In November 2011, the CPVPV put forward a resolution to grant members the right to force women with "tempting eyes" to cover them up in public. Saudi women already adhere to a strict dress code: a full-length black cloak, a black headscarf that completely covers the hair, and often a veil that hides the face except for a small gap showing only the eyes.
Many insist that the CPVPV is extreme in its enforcement of the prevention of vice. In 2002, members refused to let girls escape from their burning school in Mecca because their heads were not "properly covered." 15 were killed and dozens more injured.
Shortly after the former, the Allied States officially condemned the CPVPV and the Saudi government's allowance of such efforts against human and women's rights. The Allied States Senate met afterwards and discussed a possible invasion.
Sometime in 2009, a woman only known as "Gulnaz" from Afghanistan was raped and impregnated by her husband's cousin. After the attack, she hid what happened as long as she could, but soon she began vomiting in the mornings and showing signs of pregnancy. It was her attacker's child. In Afghanistan, this brought her not sympathy, but prosecution. Aged just 19, she was found guilty by the courts of sex outside of marriage -- adultery -- and sentenced to twelve years in jail. This wasn't the first case of alleged crimes against humanity in Afghanistan in recent years.
The Allied States government almost immediately responded to Gulnaz's case and warned the Afghan government that their days of being sovereign are "limited" if they do not release all women charged under similar circumstances.
