Obama’s plan for Iraq has really worked out great. Iran is recreating Iraq in its own horrifying Islamic image.

About two dozen Iraqi women demonstrated on Saturday in Baghdad against a draft law approved by the Iraqi cabinet that would permit the marriage of nine-year-old girls and automatically give child custody to fathers.

“On this day of women, women of Iraq are in mourning,” the protesters shouted.

“We believe that this is a crime against humanity,” said Hanaa Eduar, a prominent Iraqi human rights activist. “It would deprive a girl of her right to live a normal childhood.”

Shi’ite Islamists have come to lead the government and look to impose their religious values on society at large.

It describes girls as reaching puberty at nine, making them fit for marriage, makes the father sole guardian of his children at two and condones a husband’s right to insist on sexual intercourse with his wife whenever he wishes.

The legislation is referred to as the Ja’afari Law, named after the sixth Shi’ite imam Ja’afar al-Sadiq, who founded his own school of jurisprudence.

The draft was put forward by Justice Minister Hassan al-Shimari, a member of the Shi’ite Islamist Fadila party.

Mohammed, the Muslim prophet, married a six-year-old, so Islamic law has no problem with raping nine-year-olds.

    Obama’s plan for Iraq has really worked out great. Iran is recreating Iraq in its own horrifying Islamic image.

    Actually, it was GWB who appointed Zalmay Khalilzad, a Muslim, first as Ambassador to Afghanistan and then subsequently to Iraq, and he proceeded to install Sharia, i.e., Islamic totalitarian law, as the highest authority for law in each countries’ respective constitutions and thereby ensured at the same time that both countries would end up Islamic totalitarian hellholes as opposed to democracies as, of course, they both did. Now I dislike Obama as much as the next guy, but in this particular case the blame unequivocally goes to GWB and his incredibly incompetent regime.

    • Gee

      Was there before the war

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Was there before the war what?

        • Appaloosa

          Infant bride’s are in every Muslim country.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Yep.

      Every time I read something silly like this I think of some of the real bad sci fi movies that came out in the 50s with mindless zombies when prompted say “yes master I hear and obey”. GWB is responsible for every bad thing in the world according to these zombies, ignoring the reality that GWB left the White House years ago.

        Sorry, but your idol GWB was the worse Republican President ever in American history, as shortly after the 9/11 violent jihad attacks he proclaimed Islam to be a so-called “religion of peace” and the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world to be so-called moderate and peaceful people, with the exception of a tiny minority of radical Muslim extremists who misunderstand the beautiful “religion of peace”, and it was one of the most profound frauds ever perpetrated upon the American people. Easily as profound as the frauds Obama used to push Obamacare down the American people’s throat and to win reelection.

        Then if that wasn’t enough, the next thing GWB did was involve our military in two fantasy based nation-building missions to not only stop so-called radical Islam, which doesn’t even exist, from hijacking the beautiful “religion of peace”, but to also bring democracy to the Islamic totalitarian world in which he said, “would spread like a beacon of light throughout the Islamic world.” Yeah right!

        Then to fulfill his plan, he appointed Zalmay Khalilzad, a Muslim stealth jihadists, first as Ambassador to Afghanistan, and then subsequently to Iraq, and the esteemed Ambassador Khalilzad installed Sharia, i.e., Islamic totalitarian law, as the highest authority for law in each countries’ respective constitutions and thereby ensured at the same time that each country would remain Islamic totalitarian hellholes as opposed to becoming democracies.

        Thus, it was inevitable that GWB’s so-called “War on Terror” would turn into the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history. Not to mention that Muslims are not terrorists, they are jihadists instead waging jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world. Since it is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another. So much for his ill named so-called “War on Terror” and his ill labeling of Islam as a so-called “religion of peace”. Meanwhile, thousands of our young sons and daughters were either killed or maimed in pursuit of his two fantasy based nation-building missions with nothing to show for it but trillions of dollars in national debt.

        Moreover, instead of exercising common sense subsequent to the 9/11 violent jihad attacks by banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage on the grounds that it is really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the strategic purpose of demographic conquest and because zero Muslims in America would translate to zero violent and non-violent jihad in America, like a Dhimmicrat on steroids he practically doubled the size of the federal government via the creation of the massive Department of Homeland Security and the gargantuan National Intelligence Directorate, two of the biggest and most useless boondoggles ever in the history of the world, and he did it just to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage.

        What an idiot your idol turned out to be, as he and Karl Rove together don’t have a conservative bone in their very progressive liberal bodies between them. Apparently, you were duped and didn’t even know it, or otherwise you are a progressive liberal like GWB and Karl Rove that reveres GWB as a great man and great President.

        • cruzuzias

          “fantasy based nation building missions”?????????I gather that the writer of this line is in the 60 percent plus in this country who ingested the democrat party and main stream media B.S. that GWB lied to get us into a war in Iraq. completely ignoring all facts including everything that happened in the 90s regarding Iraq. I, for one, did not agree with some of GWB’s domestic policies such as no child left behind, but I made an effort to inform myself on the issues, and was fully behind his efforts to defend this country

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Who said anything about GWB lying to get us into a war? Certainly not me, and, by the way, I’m far more conservative and astronomically far more informed than you, so get out of here with your so-called MSM crap you moonbat. Apparently, you were duped by GWB like a gullible useful idiot, because like GWB and Karl Rove, you are also a progressive liberal, and that explains why you idolize what may be the worse President ever in history.

            Meanwhile, how did that rescuing of the so-called “religion of peace” from so-called “radical Islam” go over there in beautiful Iraq and Afghanistan, and is the Islamic Middle East shining like a beacon of light because of all the democracy brought to the region courtesy of GWB?

  • De Doc

    The imams who issue these immoral fatwas seem to all have similar appearances – the frog faced, creepy smile that just exudes “child molester.” I don’t understand how any Muslim with half a brain can abide such lecherous leeches as so-called spiritual advisors.

    • Softly Bob

      That’s because there are no Muslims with even half-a-brain.

    This just another example of Democrats snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. . How many times do we have to repeat this scenario before the morons who vote for the handouts, and to hell with the other consequences, get the message. It will eventually happen here. These same politicians who are allowing this to happen there are importing militant Muslim “refugees” into this country by the hundreds of thousands each year. Bill Clinton allowed the Saudi Wahhabis to build 3,000 Mosques in this country and staff them with militant jihadi preaching Imams imported under the religious clause in our immigration laws. Considering their anti American record, anyone has got to be insane to vote for any Democrat. Every last one of them is only interested is setting up programs that they can loot. Just look at the money D

    muslims continue to give me reasons to hate them with vengeance AND to hate our government for allowing them into our country. They should be tried for treason allowing our enemies into our country. Tried and hanged.
