850,000 Little Girls in Iran are Married

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Marriage has to go into quotation marks because it’s the same kind of marriage that any pedophile engages in. Unfortunately Islam was founded by a pedophile, making the sexual abuse of little girls into a ritual aspect of Islam.

The Ayatollah Khomeini himself married a ten-year-old girl when he was twenty-eight. Khomeini called marriage to a prepubescent girl “a divine blessing,” and advised the faithful: “Do your best to ensure that your daughters do not see their first blood in your house.”

And the nightmarish Islamist state that he created, with the aid of Jimmy Carter, is a wonderful land of devout pedophilia.

According to official statistics, about one million children, even under age 10, are married. The statistics also show that 85% of these one million married children are girls – meaning that most of them are married to grown men

According to one sociologist, arranging marriages for children, especially girls, is common among poor and uneducated urban families that seek a way out of dire financial straits; he adds that the girls themselves are severely damaged both physically and psychologically.

In other words, the little girls are sold, just like in Afghanistan and Pakistan and elsewhere in the Muslim world where Islam rules.

According to regime statistics, from March through June of 2012, 1,805 children under the age of 15 were married legally and with the permission of the court;

Farshid Yazdani, a member of the Association for the Defense of Children’s Rights in Iran, noted that while in 2006 child marriages constituted 2.3% of all marriages, by 2010 that figure had grown 45%, to 4.9%.

He warned the regime about the ramifications of child marriages, including divorce and domestic violence, and noted that in 2006, statistics showed that Iran had 25,000 divorced children aged 10-15.

25,000 divorced children. If Islamic immigration continues, that is the future of the West.

    A political doctrine which masks itself as a religion; founded by a pedophile; has created a cult like none other. Therefore, everything else comes into sharp relief re Islam, whether Sunni or Shia. The defiling of little girls (boys too) is linked to their relationship with blood – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a

    This is what the west is facing!

    God bless you, Daniel Greenfield, for continuing to bring stories like this to the forefront.

    so what?is this suppose to be a smear against another culture or is this propaganda for another war against a sovereign nation that has done nothing to us(despite the meddling the US sate has been involved in Iran since their inception)? how bout we leave Islam to their culture and concentrate on the economic dire straits our country is in. neo-cons like Horowitz are a joke. advocating western interventionism in ME, smearing Islamic culture, and justifying their hatred for us with the absurd 'they hate us for our freedom'. Horowitz, Gellar, Spencer and all you tired old neo-cons need to go away and retire. your policy of the warfare state and big govt has contributed to putting the US republic in jeopardy to exist under the constitutional rule of law.

    • Michael Copeland

      Islamic "culture" smears itself. No help is needed.

    • RebeccaJean

      I think he is only bringing to the fore the horrendous nature of Islam and countries that are ruled by it. I don't see any advocacy for going to war because of the pedophilic tendencies of Islam and it's founder in this piece. And I do believe they hate us for our freedom because they believe it leads to licentiousness. Kind of ironic don't you think? Considering some of the behaviour that they engage in such as state sanctioned pedophilia.

    • Spikey1

      "your policy of the warfare state and big govt has contributed to putting the US republic in jeopardy to exist under the constitutional rule of law."

      Ah hahahahahah, oh let me catch my breath, ahahahahahahahaha

      My replies just to that one line of yours:
      1. Warfare, at times, is needed to put bad peoples and countries in their place.
      2. Freedom of speech.
      3. Dems are for the largest forms of government.
      4. The only people putting this republic in jeopardy are Democrats via their constant twisting of The Constitution.
      5. Dems have changed "rule of law" to whim of the day laws.

      On a separate note: Any religion that promotes the rape of little girls deserves to be vilified.

    • Mary Sue

      so you're completely OK with Iran raping little girls, then?

        It's one of his favorite "features" of the gutter cult of islam.

    • misternatural13

      it is not logical or rational to bestow US citizenship on a follower of mohammed.
      the oath of allegiance requires the applicant to foreswear allegiance to any foreign prince or potentate or sovereignty.
      surely this would include the requisite renunciation of the so-called prophet mohammed, for if this so-called prophet is not a foreign prince or potentate then nobody is

      The problem is they want to conquer the world and we are the great satan. They will be after our destruction no matter what.

  • Michael Copeland

    It is appropriate to distinguish “arranged” marriages, where the parents introduce eligible partners for the offspring to choose, and “forced” marriages, where there is no choice. The “one sociologist” quoted in the context of “arranging” marriages above is talking about forced marriage, resulting in severe damage physically and psychologically. Careful use of words helps here.

    • Davro

      Arranged marriages are not there for the female to say no. They have less education, no financial or moral support nor the means to support themselves otherwise.

  • AlgerHiss

    The Islamic male is the most despicable, horrid, sick piece of human debris the world has ever experienced. They are ignorant, vile, vulgar and decidedly violent.

    Every Islamic male ought be forced into wearing burkas.

    • kafir4life

      I agree with you to a point. Have you ever looked under a burkee to see what it's hiding? You'd have to say that its the second most despicable, horrid, sick piece of (not quite) human debris the world has ever experienced.
      Every muslima should be forced to wear TWO burkees, in case one falls off.

  • Hnas

    I am sure this person wrote this note he had issue with Islam:

    1- Picture is not belong to Iranian, it is Afghan , as you see behind of picture.

    2- If you clear study, Jews created this radical issue, of course they will pay for it.

    Everyone using Islam to reach own dirty aim (political, Economical sexual desires).

    3- Muslem means submitted to God, are you seeing anyone? In fact religion means discovering your own reality by using Prophets teaching. Is there anyone with religion? No.

    I am teaching the reality of Islam in USA, fortunately many people turned in Islam and helping each other to clean up those Radicals(infarct enemies of Islam) mine.

    4- Instead of criticizing Islam learn about Islam and fight with ignorance by knowledge not by blood.

    If you are alive, but not helping people with knowledge, in fact you are dead!

    • Parenthetical Phrase

      More words of wisdom from a teach of Islam, the religion of peace. Need I say more?

    • Softly Bob

      I know the reality of Islam. I've studied the Koran and Hadith and I know that it encourages paedophilia. Mohammed himself was a paedphile. Why do you Muslim morons keep telling us to learn about Islam? I have studied it and I probably know more about it than you do. I know that Islam is a sick and evil ideology! Don't try and lie to us. I know your dirty little tricks and it doesn't work with people like me.

      While the picture is Afghani, the very same issue is present in Afghanistan; what difference does it make? The point is to portray child bride of old Muslim creep.

      What is it with you and haxing on the Jews? Leave the Jews alone man they have their own problems without muslim h8rs adding to them.

    • kafir4life

      allahu snackbar, muslim!! How's that pedophilic false prophet (mohamat) that you're so fond of? How come he liked to have sex with pigs then later eat them?
      I know all about islam!! I've learned it from the terror guide, the koran, and by watching what muslims do and listening to what muslims say. It's a gutter cult, muslim. Disgusting.
      Did you make sure your "wife's" genitals were properly cut?

    • http://twitter.com/Esgaroth @Esgaroth

      Hnas, one word: taqqiyah. Everything you say in defense of Islam is taqqiyah.

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    Sad but true, such cultural phenomena actually benefits the West. These little girls will be so shell-shocked and depressed about marriage and sex that they won't EVER want to get married and have children. The population rates in Iran are taking such a steep dive that their government is terrified. If their response is to marry off pre-pubescent girls, well, that will result in a faster decline. In Afghanistan, which is where the photo was taken, the suicide rate among young married women is sky high. In fact, clinics are filled with young women who have attempted to set themselves on fire rather than stay in their marriages. Islam is quickly killing itself off but nuclear weapons in the hands of desperate lunatics is VERY, VERY DANGEROUS.

    • Dippy

      not sure where you get the idea of population rates diving in Iran from. Population growth is slowing- but it is still increasing. Females are just raped and not allowed contraception, and they are 'married' at such a young age so that they will have no chance at independence – they will not have enough education/confidence to survive independently. If the child dies in childbirth, it can be replaced. Islam is nowhere near 'quickly killing itself'.

  • soroush

    The picture is NOT even Iran!!!

    • Mary Sue

      And that makes a difference HOW exactly? It's a picture of an OLD Muslim creep with a young girl! It gets the point across!

      • blue

        and how you do not assume the little girl is sitting with her grandfather?

        • Dippy

          Could be me – what is your point? it is For illustration purposes..in reality we don't even need a photo. The statistics are provided by the governments themselves which are Muslim, You have someone here justifying the selling of females quite well here – clearly there is no support for them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embed

    Blaming religion for the actions of a group of people is ridiculous. The court allowed the marriages, not Islam. Just because the rulers follow 'Islam' and think they are making rules under Islam, doesn't mean that they actually are. They just believe they are. When taught any religion, people also add their own personal opinions into the matter. Why is it that some Christians forbid alcohol yet others drink themselves dead? Now if we looked at one of those, we could easily be biased and say all Christians are alcoholics and their Bible encourages them to do so. See the sense in that? Right, there is none. Lets look onto the attack in Newtown Ct, the terrorist was an american and was christian or catholic (can't quite remember the religion). And yes i say terrorist because was it not an act of terrorism? Innocent children killed for no reason, i see no difference in that killing and the one in the Boston marathon. Yet the person who committed the crime in Newtown is considered mentally challenged and facing issues at home, but these other two men who committed the crimes in Boston are considered terrorists only because of their religion? How ignorant can one nation be? You can't blame an entire religion for one groups actions. Like the old saying of you can't blame someone for something their grandfather did. I know many muslims, who look like any other american, and they are the nicest people. I've read the Quran, and i know that no where does it promote rape or pedophilia. It never said anything against any religion or any ethnicity. It also talks about sins, and how killing is horrible no matter the circumstance. It says that taking one life is like killing all of humanity, and saving one life is like saving all of humanity. Some of you should really educate yourselves. I found out myself to not trust what others say, and to do my own studies so i can figure out the truth myself. I suggest the same to everyone else. Polygamy and marriage to young children is controlled by the country and their rules. They can stop it anytime. I even took the time to talk to a family in my community who practices Islam, i wasn't close friends with them and that's why i chose to talk to them since i knew our relationship wouldn't affect their responses. I asked them about marriage and what they think about selling their daughter or having multiple wives. The response they gave me was exactly what i expected. They said that selling their daughter would be ridiculous, they want her to chose a guy for herself after she finishes her education and gets a job to support herself and be independent. They also said that muslims having more than one wife is a common assumption of many people; but its a wrong assumption. They are only allowed one wife. Divorce is bad, but if it comes to the point of extreme unhappiness then you can get a divorce and only then can you get a new wife. The woman of this family are also uncovered. They wear normal western clothing. The oldest daughter, who was about 17, was wearing shorts and a tank top. My point is that you can't judge people based on their origin or what religion they follow. It would be complete ignorance.

    • DeeDee

      @ Concerned. I agree with everything you have said about learning for oneself; however, when the radicals are in charge, the picture is so much different. It's a shame the good Islam believers can't stay in their countries, take over the gov't and change things. I suspect they have also been "dumbed down" over the years and take things as they come. Just like our schools are doing to our children. Our children can't even defend themselves without getting in trouble–that is a miscarriage of justice.

    • Horace

      Evil lies will get you on the fast track to hell, but won't save Islam. Your quote about saving one life is saving all of humanity is most interesting and is a massive exposing of the reality of Islam, since it is essentially Sura 5-32 (which is a Mohammedan claim (Satan pretending to be God) quoting the guidance God gave to the children of Israel). Sura 5-33, the very next line calls for the "crucifixion, and cutting off of the hands and feet " of those who wont accept Islam, or fight against its "order" (whatever the hell Mohammed needs at the moment to justify his bloodlust or just plain lust). Wake up, you're not in hell yet.

    • Indioviejo

      Mohamed, the most perfect man in Islam was a pedophile. Aisha his favorite wife was SIX years old when he married her, and she was NINE years old when he consummated the marriage. In between his sexual exploit with the little girl, he manage to rape, pillage, plunder and enslave through out his life. My point is that if you follow Islam and its prophet, you are no less of a criminal than he was. Give up the satanic cult.

    • Davro
    • Chris Wright

      Are you saying that someone who says the Boston cowardly attack was a blow or Islam wasn't really referring to a religious motivation?????

  • Horace

    Islam is a "religion" for primitive tribal semi-humans ("other cultures") that allows them to persist in their personal pleasure habits without any feelings of guilt or any restrictions on their "activities" including whatever the hell they might feel like doing. Afghanistan or Iran or Saudi Arabia, the men can do whatever the hell they feel like as long as they steadfastly adhere to Islam which is easy for them to do since it is pure evil.

    • DeeDee

      Islam is an excuse men use for their heathen ways. Keep them ignorant and they will prevail.

  • Horace

    I forgot to add that poor young men don't count. You gotta have a few oilbucks (piracy and caravan raiding being now dangerous) or a few satisfied sheep (Goatsbyday) for Islam to work so you get the girl (literally). One reason you send the horny young morons out to the Jihad- get rid of the competition.

    Ayatollah Khomeini raped a 4 year old girl

  • charlotte

    This demented perverted porcine servant of Allah the moon god actually did molest a little girl, daughter of a house where he stayed overnight.

    “An excerpt from ‘Hal Ataaka Hadeeth ur-Raafidah?’ by the late Sheikh Abu Mus’abaz-Zarqaawi“The author of the book ‘For Allah, Then For History’ mentions to us an event that took place before his very eyes, when al-Khomeini was living in Iraq, and was visiting an Iranian individual by the name of Sayyid Sahib.
    He says: ‘Sayyid Sahib was joyous with our visit, and we arrived at his house around the time of Dhuhr. So, he prepared for us a lavish dinner, and called some of his relatives, who came to see us, and the house became crowded in celebration of our presence.
    Sayyid Sahib then requested that we spend that night at his home, to which the Imam agreed. When it was night time, we were given our supper, and the guests would take the Imam’s hand and kiss it, and they would ask him questions, with him answering their questions.
    When it was time to sleep, the guests had all left, except for the inhabitants of the house. Al-Khomeini laid his eyes on a young girl who, despite being only four or five years of age, was very beautiful.
    So, the Imam requested from her father, Sayyid Sahib, that he spend the night with her in order to enjoy her. Her father happily agreed, and Imam al-Khomeini spent the night with the girl in his arms, and we could hear her crying and screaming.’”
    This book was written under the alias Husayn al-Musawi, a former companion of al-Khomeini who later abandoned his previous beliefs.

    ALSO, some of his beliefs: “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed.
    A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged.
    If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives.
    He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.
    “You need not fear that your Muslim male baby-sitter will rape your 7-year-old daughter. If he is a good Muslim he will only sodomize her. If he does force his penis into her tiny vagina he is obligated to pay for any surgical repairs that may be required. If those repairs are deemed insufficient you may work out a financial settlement to compensate you for his trivial infraction.

    he also mentioned something about “thighing”

    JEWISH LIE ALERT!!!

    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini married his wife Khadijeh Saqafi in 1929, when he was 27 and she was 16.

    While child marriages are more common in the Middle East in the West, there is no equivalence between Christian pedophille pastors and priests and child brides in the Islamic and Third World.

    I am not defending anything or anyone, but neither your story nor the Picture are the whole truth. This Picture is an Afghan man, definitely sure, taken in Afghanistan. It is both obvious from the way of living, his/ her cloth, also the posters on the wall. Nevertheless, there are no evidence that he is not her father. Secondly there are 70.000.000 people living in Iran, whom almost 90% live in urbans. 58% university student in Iran are female. 50% labour are female. How can you claim 850.000 small girls are married? Statistic for 2012 showed that 45000 young under age 18 have been married. In spite of our disgust for the Islamic regim, yet I have to admit that they have arrange a commity to investigate and prevent the underage marriage in villages and counties in the ørken areas, where this is practising. I find your article very untruth and pure propaganda based on hatred and ignorance.

    • Indioviejo

      Mohamed, the inventor of Islam was a murder, a looter, a rapist, and a pedophile. Anyone who follows Islam is part of a satanic cult of criminals, and this is a fact. Just read the Koran, the Hadiths and the Sunnah, and you will learn the truth from the source. Find out for yourself instead of braying apologies.

  • Michael Emran

    I see many points of views. Some politically correct and others incorrect. I guess there is a price tag for everything we do and have including freedom. I am Iranian-American and this is my points of views:
    In this free civilized society we can do many wrong doings as long as no one discovers it! Girls trafficking across the globe, over 70% divorce rates in families and cheatings, many rapes and victims, killings of children and school shootings, drugs everywhere, gangs, jails full of criminals, among many others all indicate that we live in a crazy time! May be we aren’t perfect either. It is time to analyze the issues seriously and do something about them before destroying us. No wonder radical religious people are able to continue abusing their religion and think it is better than freedom. For example, they see what drinking alcohol is doing to our families and then they say it is forbidden by GOD. We know drug dealers; they continue destroying our youth before they can even gain knowledge about themselves or the drugs. Abusing religion is not a new trend. Abusing a religion or faith is possible by all those wanting to abuse it. Those who can are brain washing the children and abusing them. Best is thinking and talking with common sense and not just with hot air. Gaining knowledge about issues is the start point. It leads to proper points of views and perspectives about the issues. Pointing fingers and character assassination or killing the messengers is like shooting ourselves in the foot! Talk is really very cheap and time is very expensive. Why not just Google the subjects and learn about them first. For example: Google Iranian before talking about Iranians. Just do it and see who they are and what happened to them. Google everything and gain knowledge. It is wise to utilize it appropriately. Muslim, Christian or Jewish faith or other religions are not the issues. The issues are how we interpret them and act in a modern civilized society. How we can educate each other and live in peace on earth. If a country is ruled by wrong leaders, the problem is created by those leaders and their supporters. What we see in Iran today is the results of us supporting dictators for decades in the past. If we didn’t kill their Nationalist Democratic movements of 1953 and didn’t support the dictators for 50 years then Iran may have been a democratic nation today. Unfortunately even Ayatollah came to Iran by French and US helping him. There are many good Muslims or Christians or Jews among others and there are just as many bad ones all over the world. We can't judge all people and blame them on their religions or origins or nationality. But when we see wrong doings and know all the facts then we should expose all uncivilized acts and oppose them no matter who, what, and where. :)
