More Evidence That Islam Is Just A Harmless Religion

Read this if you have the stomach. All emphasis mine.

Dead Yemeni child bride tied up, raped, says mom

SHUEBA, Yemen (AP) — A 13-year-old Yemeni child bride who bled to death shortly after marriage was tied down and forced to have sex by her husband, according to interviews with the child's mother, police and medical reports.

The girl's mother, Nijma Ahmed, 50, told the Associated Press that before her daughter lost consciousness, she said that her husband had tied her up and forced himself on her. "She looked like she was butchered," she said about her daughter's injuries.

Elham Assi, 13, bled to death hours after she spoke to her mother and just days after she was married to a 23-year-old man. She died on April 2 in the deeply poor Yemeni village of Shueba, some 200 kilometers northwest of the capital. Her husband, Abed al-Hikmi, is in police custody.

The practice of marrying young girls is widespread in Yemen where a quarter of all females marry before the age of 15, according to a 2009 report by the country's Ministry of Social Affairs. Traditional families prefer young brides because they are seen as more obedient and are expected to have more children.

Legislation to ban child brides has been stalled by opposition from religious leaders. There has been no government comment over the case.

The girl — one of eight siblings — was pushed into marriage after an agreement between her brother and her future-husband to marry each other's sisters to avoid having to pay expensive bride-prices — a common arrangement in Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East.

According to police notes from the interrogation of the husband, he was upset because he could not consummate their relationship and felt under pressure to prove his manhood.

Assi's mother said she also tried to persuade her daughter to have sex with her husband so as not to shame the family.

I am sick to death hearing this religion of peace bullshit.

I don't really have anything else to add. This article says it all.

And people wonder why I'd just as soon make it a dead religion. I don't believe in trying to be respectful of any religion that promotes pediphilia, murder of innocents, and forced slavery of women. Imams and religious leaders should be made extinct. That would make it a peaceful religion, right enough.

It's not unknown to treat evil religions like that. Death cults in India were outlawed back in the early parts of the 20th century. Sounds like it's time to dust off the family jewels and treat these guys like the war mongering, butchers they are.

I got an email photo of many, about fifty, child brides, ages averaging 9, I'd guess from looking at them...all marrying men at least 18 years old.......maybe this poor child was part of that bunch.
imagine what she went through......and how many more are, every day.

Greywolfe, I agree. They keep saying this is a small minority that makes the religion look bad. I think we either give the Muslims a chance to clean this up or we assist them.

Z, if this had happened to a child her it would be treated as a horrendous crime and the man would have been hunted down, imprisoned, and then treated poorly in prison by his fellow inmates for being a depraved pedophile. In Islamic countries it is state sanctioned.

Finally, we have leftists screaming about human rights abuses around the world including by the US but where the hell are they now? We have women's rights groups like NOW bitching because women in the US cannot kill their babies because of their rights being curtailed but we have the worst example of women's rights abuses in these countries, they have never said a word to my knowledge. They're all full of shit.

Islam is filled with such instances of unspeakable barbarity.

I'm surprised that this particular one actually was made public. But, of course, the information didn't come from any of the liberal-leaning media, all of which are so busy whitewashing the atrocious deeds of Moslems.

One of the most disturbing aspects of this story:
Assi's mother said she also tried to persuade her daughter to have sex with her husband so as not to shame the family.

Is that psycho, or what?

Brooke said...

As you said, Chuck, the article says it all... To any thinking person with half a soul.

No doubt there are those liberal apologist dhimmis out there that would defend even this.

Mustang said...

My reaction to the story was the same as everyone’s here … so far. But then, I am a racist who cannot understand that these people are simply from a different culture than we are. And besides, remember the Crusades? Also, 9/11 was our fault.


Chuck said...

AOW, I find what the mother did to be bordering on evil

Brooke, we are just narrow minded far right wackos

Mustang, I didn't see your post before I responded to Brooke. Your right, we really should be ashamed of ourselves. For one thing, we haven't even examined what it is that makes these poor bastards act this way.

Worst thing you can wish upon anyone is to be born a woman in islam. They treat women worse that garbage, it's really quite sickening.

What's worse liberals are happy to always support islam, they also claim to be the party for women's rights.

Chuck said...

MK, it isn't it amazing how leftists go on and on about women's rights when it suits them? They are very selective on which women they want to protect and God forbid your a conservative woman, than your treated like dirt.

I'll bet the Yemeni government releases the husband by blaming his impotence on his murdered wife. Sorta like libs in this country blame obama's flacid economy on Bush.

Chuck said...

DaBlade, undoubtedly this was all her fault.
