1/3 of Gaza Hamas Marriages Involved Underage Girls

Who knew that setting up a region controlled by Islamists would lead to repression of women and child abuse?

In 2012, of about 17,000 marriages were registered in the courts of the Gaza Strip, 35% were cases in which the brides were under 17 years old. These marriages are concluded without the courts knowing the girls’ real ages. Meanwhile, about 2,700 divorce cases were registered in the same year, and in 25% of these the wives were underage, Bakr Azzam, a lawyer specializing in Sharia issues, told Al-Monitor.

So a higher percentage of underage girls get married than divorced in Gaza. Somehow I don’t think it’s marital bliss that’s responsible for that statistic.

Mariam explained that due to her young age she wasn’t capable of meeting the demands of married life.

“I was taken away from my small toys, taken out of my school forcibly and delivered to my husband whom I had only seen once, in front of the judge who officiated my marriage contract,” she added.

And her “married life” went swimmingly.

Mariam recently ran away from her husband’s house and returned to her father’s, after concluding that she could not bear to stay with her husband. He dates other women under the excuse that his wife is young and thinks like a child, not living up to the intellect of a man of his age. Mariam’s husband also beats her whenever they have an argument.

“When I told my father about this, he told me, ‘This is normal and most young people are facing such a situation these days’”

Remember, Mohammed was the original feminist.

    Muhammad married Aisha when she was only nine years old. Islamic totalitarian law is based off of the example of the prophet, as he is considered to be the most perfect Muslim that ever lived and also emanates directly from the Koran, which is understood by all Muslims to be the direct verbatim testimony of Allah (God) as dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel. Hence, Islamic totalitarian law is deemed to be divine law and because it is divine law, it is therefore perfect, totally flawless, and absolutely just. Muslims also believe as well that Islamic totalitarian law, because it is divine and therefore infallible, must also supersede and abrogate any and all laws instituted by very fallible man, and this is one of the biggest reasons why the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels through both violent and non-violent jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is not only Islamic totalitarian law, but also Allah’s (God’s) law.

      No married at 6, consummated at 9; but we all get the point.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        You’re right. I had a brain fart.

        • Moa

          OWM, would also be nice if you put spaces between your paragraphs. Would make your stuff *a lot* easier to read, amigo.

          Note that Aisha was 9 *lunar years* old at consummation. That could mean she was 8 *solar years*. Completely repulsive stuff – but just wanted to point that little tidbit out.

        Sexually assaulted from the age of 6 or earlier.

    Happens here, but drugs are used, not legal force.

    • DogmaelJones1

      Cite some examples.

    • Moa

      Yes, but where is it legally sanctioned here? You cannot try and draw a false moral equivalence.

    A Musloid is a whoremonger because his child bride isn’t his intellectual equal. It amazes me that these half-wits can focus long enough to draw a breath.

    How about doing a study on how many of these child brides are also first cousins of the bridegrooms?

      Muslims often blame their high rate of birth defects on “depleted uranium” (eg. in Iraq, even though DU wasn’t used as the insurgents had no tanks – DU rounds are *only* good at killing armored vehicles; High Explosive and Armour Piercing Incendiary are used for all other types of targets).

      In fact, the birth defects are due to the Muslim custom if “consanguinity”, intermarriage with close relatives. For example, under the Taliban the number of birth defects soared, correlated with the increase in the number of cousin marriages.

      Here’s a chart showing birth defects by country. Notice that the high rate of birth defects is not correlated with countries where depleted uranium was used 20 years ago (Iraq), but is *strongly* correlated with Muslim cultures:

        Thanks. That chart is great. Also, the UK is trying to figure out how to discourage these marriages among Pakistani immigrants. Their health system is groaning under the expense of these birth defects.

    All primitive, self-consciously anti-modern societies have a very high propensity for “arranged” (i.e., forced) marriages involving females by puberty. The Islamic version is more lethal than the Jewish or Christian version (much as I despise the latter two) because Islam, by its very nature, is despotic. It cannot tolerate any intimation of female sexuality, even in the private home much less the public square.

    Pedophilia in the Qur’an (65:4, the ugliest verse)
    The exact translation (below 2nd video) of this portion of Qur’an 65:4 is “Not menstruated yet”
    (لَمْ يَحِضْنَ “Wallaee Lam yahidhna”)
