Islamic Law: Girls Can Be Married Even ‘In The Cradle’

by Raymond Ibrahim

BAHRAIN-RELIGION-ISLAM-RAMADAN

…Fawzan insisted that nowhere does Sharia (or Islamic law) set an age limit for marrying girls: like countless Muslim scholars before him, he relied on Koran 65:4, which discusses marriage to females who have not yet begun menstruating (i.e., are prepubescent) and the fact that Muhammad, Islam’s role model, married Aisha when she was six or seven, “consummating” the marriage—or, in modern/Western parlance, raping her—when she was nine.

The grand point of the Saudi fatwa, however, is not that girls as young as nine can be married, based on Muhammad’s example, but rather that there is no age limit whatsoever.  The only question open to consideration is whether the girl is physically capable of handling her “husband.”  Fawzan documented this point by quoting Ibn Battal’s authoritative exegesis of Sahih Bukhari:

The ulema [Islam’s scholars and interpreters] have agreed that it is permissible for fathers to marry off their small daughters, even if they are in the cradle.  But it is not permissible for their husbands to have sex with them unless they are capable of being placed beneath and bearing the weight of the men.  And their capability in this regard varies based on their nature and capacity.  Aisha was six when she married the prophet, but he had sex with her when she was nine [that is, when she was deemed capable].

Fawzan concluded his fatwa with a warning: “It behooves those who call for setting a minimum age for marriage to fear Allah and not contradict his Sharia, or try to legislate things Allah did not permit.  For laws are Allah’s province; and legislation is his exclusive right, to be shared by none other.  And among these are the rules governing marriage.”

Once again, case closed.

Fawzan, of course, is not the first to insist on the legitimacy of pedophilia in Islam.  Nor is this just some theoretic, abstract point; the lives of countless young girls are devastated because of this teaching.  Recall, for instance, the8-year-old girl who died on her “wedding” night as her “husband” raped her; or the 12-year-old who died giving birth to a stillborn; or the 10-year-old who made headlines by hiding  from her 80-year-old “husband.”…

Egyptian Actors Pranked on Candid Camera Turn Violent When Told TV Channel Is Israeli

By Jonathan S. Tobin

…All three of the prominent victims of this stunt were outraged at the thought of even being in the same room with people they presumed to be Jews, let alone appearing on an Israeli program. Two grew violent, with one burly male even assaulting the young female interviewer. The prank speaks volumes not only about the level of hatred for Jews and Israelis in Egyptian popular culture but about what is considered acceptable behavior in the Muslim world.

Viewing the invective about Jews and Israel being spewed on the show by three apparently prominent members of the Egyptian arts community is damning by itself. It says a lot that the show’s producers thought one of the most outrageous things they could do to Egyptians was to trick them into sitting down with Jews. Nor is it surprising that the response generated hate speech about the character of the Jewish people and the authenticity of the Holocaust….

…Nevertheless, the show tells us all we need to know about the depth of Egyptian and Muslim anti-Semitism. Those who believe peace with the Arab world can be bought by territory or by Israeli concessions continue to ignore the current of hatred that runs through the political and arts culture of the Muslim world, even in a country supposedly at peace with the Jewish state.

Barbaric 100% Islamic Sudan

By Eric Reeves

…Hudud, a specific category of punishment within the penal code of sharia (Islamic law), is unspeakably barbaric in Sudan.  And this barbarism has not diminished in recent years, despite claims in some quarters that Islamism is on the wane in Sudan, still a vast and highly various country.  The National Islamic Front/National Congress Party (NIC/NCP) regime is as committed as ever to an extremely aggressive interpretation of sharia, as well as its uniform imposition. Under the penal provisions of hudud in Sudan, women are regularly sentenced to be flogged (a punishment that can be fatal) for crimes ranging from brewing beer to support a family to wearing insufficiently “modest” clothing.  Even more shocking, women—and girls—are sentenced to be stoned to death under Sudanese hudud for adultery. Although sentences are typically commuted in the judicial proceedings, commutation is entirely arbitrary and seems to depend upon the degree of international attention that is focused on a given case.  The execution itself is carried out by a crowd throwing stones at the victim, who is buried up to her chest with her hands tied.  It is a slow, grim, and agonizing death.

Cross-amputation—the amputation of the right hand and left foot—is almost incomprehensibly cruel, yet it too persists.  A case from several years ago gained prominence in the human rights world because the sentence was handed out to a 16-year-old boy.  Most of these cases go unreported, but not always (the link here is to a horrific photograph of four Darfuri men who have had the sentence of cross-amputation imposed; I urge caution in deciding whether or not to view this disturbing photograph).  There is no sign that the imposition of this brutally destructive assault on human flesh and spirit will end soon.

Crucifixion is also a punishment under Sudanese hudud.  It is the punishment for apostasy (leaving the faith of Islam), but other crimes as well.  The African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies reported on the cases of seven men last November:

“On 28 November 2011, Judge Altyeb Alamin Elbashir of the Special Criminal Court in North Darfur sentenced seven individuals to death and ordered them crucified following their executionThe purpose of crucifixion is to draw attention to their crimes.  The group, affiliated with the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), was on trial for a carjacking committed on 3 May 2010.”

If the current regime in Khartoum and its president, Omar al-Bashir, have their way, all this will continue.  Having allowed the South to secede a year ago, the regime confronts increasing pressures from both the more radical Islamists and the more thuggish of military hardliners.  These pressures are reflected in al-Bashir’s promise about Sudan’s new constitution and the laws that will govern all Sudanese, Muslim and non-Muslim alike:

“Sudan constitution to be ’100 percent Islamic’: President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said on Saturday Sudan’s next constitution would be ’100 percent Islamic’ to set an example for neighbouring countries, some of which have seen religious parties gain power after popular uprisings. The secession of mostly non-Muslim South Sudan a year ago sparked predictions that Sudan, which hosted former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in the 1990s, would start implementing Islamic law more strictly. In a speech to leaders of the mystical Islamic Sufi tradition in Khartoum, Bashir suggested Sudan’s new, post-secession constitution could help guide the region’s political transformation. ‘We want to present a constitution that serves as a template to those around us. And our template is clear, a 100 percent Islamic constitution, without communism or secularism or Western (influences),’ said Bashir.” (Reuters [Khartoum], July 7, 2012)

This is the president of the regime that the Obama administration believes is capable of “carrying out reform via constitutional democratic measures” in Sudan. But without regime change, and the success of the current uprising, al-Bashir has given us all too clear an understanding of the future of “constitutional reform” and source of “law” for all in Sudan, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

At the same time, one of the most remarkable features of the “Arab Spring” now spreading throughout Sudan is the increasingly courageous and adamant stand of women against the brutal excesses of Sudanese sharia (other, even more uniformly Muslim countries follow versions of sharia that are not nearly so severe). Women have been at the center of the year-old resistance movement Girifna, and have made their voices heard in increasingly public fashion.  One of the videos linked below provides a clandestine view of women exuberantly protesting flogging while actually in prison.  It is the very spirit of political resistance to tyranny, political and religious.

It is worth noting that in Sudan, the regime’s respect for sharia does not extend to forbidding torture of the most savage sort.  Having read numerous personal statements by victims of torture as part of my work on Sudanese asylum cases, and having spoken with some of these victims, I find an obscene disconnect between the Quran’s repeated speaking in “the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful,” and the realities of Kober Prison and the various “ghost houses” in which Sudanese continue to endure unspeakable pain and suffering—brutal torture that is sanctioned by not a single passage in the Quran (see Appendix).  I will not include their terrifying accounts here, but should anyone doubt the extremity of torture in Sudan, I would urge a reading of Chapter 20 of Halima Bashir’s searing memoir, Tears of the Desert (2008)….

Evil Saudi teen monster whips Bangladeshi garbage collector for his own amusement

The Quran and Islamic practices are Arab-centric, so there is an order even among Muslims, as the Bangladeshi laborer in this video discovers. -HT http://thereligionofpeace.com/


Who are the real barbarians ?

All this fuss about US troops being photographed with body parts from our extinguished enemies reminded me of the barbarism of those we are fighting.

It is those same enemies who wage Jihad in the name of Islam on innocent American lives.

So, all you MSM journalists and those who sympathize with them, please remember that your faux outrage over the actions of this Nation’s finest is aiding and abetting our enemy.

The next time someone tries to tell you how barbaric American troops are behaving . . . . make them sit down and watch these videos and remind them of the barbarity of our enemies.

WARNING!!!! THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS ARE VERY GRAPHIC, UPSETTING AND DISTURBING BUT DEMONSTRATE THE BARBARITY OF OUR ENEMY.

Islam -What the West Needs to Know

Saint Doonesbury, the Teaching Missionary to the Christians

By Bill Warner

From: Doonesbury, GB Trudeau,

http://www.doonesbury.com/strip/archive/2011/12/21

We can find out that Iraqi Christians are
–being annihilated
–one of the oldest Christian communities in the world
in the media and the COMICS! Doonesbury, of all places.

But, we probably won’t learn about the annihilation of Christianity in a church. You see, if you start with the facts of persecution, you might come to the point that you would ask the question: who is killing Christians? If the answer turns out to be Muslims, then a second question arises: Why do Muslims murder and persecute Christians? That answer can only turn to be: Because of Islam. Oops! Can’t go there, so let’s not talk about the annihilation of Christians, at all.

Why are Christians in such denial about Islam? This is a critical question, since modern Western knowledge of Islam has a 14 century base of Christian scholarship. As the Church thought, so did the Western world. There are contributions from Jews, but, in the end, there is no real difference between the Islamic scholarship of Jews and the Christians, as they share the same limitations.

A LEGACY OF IGNORANCE
Back to why the Christians are in such denial about the true nature of Islam. It started when Umar, the second Caliph, burst out of the Arabian Desert in the first universal jihad against a Christian Mediterranean civilization. When we read the earliest records, there is so much confusion about the conquerors that they called them Arabs, not Muslims. This began an intellectual construct to refer to Islam by the first invader’s identity—the Turk, the Saracen, the Moor, the Arab–never, the Muslim.

It was five centuries after the first jihad passed before the Koran was translated into a Western language, Latin. Then it took another five centuries before there was another translation. Do you see a trend? The first translation of Mohammed’s biography into English did not occur until the 17th century. The major Hadith author, Bukhari, is known in an English translation by a Muslim and that was done in the 20th century. This is a dreadful intellectual history. There were some good works in German, Italian and some other European languages, but the discussion about Islam took place mainly in academic realms.

The ignorance of Islam extends to the detailed history of the Islamic destruction of Christianity for 14 centuries.

This foundation of ignorance is what underlies the desert of Islamic studies at our universities. But, let’s not only deal with the institutions of “higher” learning; they sold out to the Saudis in the sixties. Look at Christian schools’ curriculum about Islam–think World Religions 101.

If the ministers of today were not taught about Islam and its history in college, where do they learn about it? Why would they know about it? Ignorance begets ignorance…
