Though the Hamas Tots-For-Terrorists story turned out to be false, -for the only proof for the story were the countless pictures of young girls in bridal gowns walking around with men about to be married in a mass wedding of Hamas supporters, and not one photo of an adult bride before or after the mass nuptials- the fact is, these sharia sanctioned weddings do take place.Though Sky News’ Tim Marshall thanked the Tundra Tabloids for dropping the story, he appeared rather uncertain about the practice of child brides to adult males in Islamic law, something which even led him to admit that it “never dawned on me that the blogosphere could have come to that conclusion through his photos and video of the mass wedding.” (paraphrase).Well Tim, if you’re still reading the TT, check out the following story and see why we were/still are concerned for these girls. The fact that you offered no more facts to the case other than your own words…still does not meet the criteria for journalistic profesionalism. KGSVia: Atlas Shrugs
It reminds us all about this
A Saudi Arabian father forced his 10-year-old daughter to return to her 80-year-old husband Sunday, after she was found hiding at the home of her aunt for 10 days, Arab News reported. The young girl’s husband, who denies he is 80 despite family claims, accused the aunt of violating the terms of his marriage, allowed by Sharia Law.
“My marriage is not against Sharia. It included the elements of acceptance and response by the father of the bride,” he told a local newspaper. A member of the National Society for Human Rights said there are no regulations in place to stop the marriage of young girls, which is seen as harmful to their wellbeing.
