    U.K.: Girls as young as nine being forced into marriage
    Nine. There's that number again. Now, everyone knows only the greasiest of greasy Islamophobes retail the notion that the practice of marrying girls as young as nine has something to do with Muhammad marrying Aisha when she was six and consummating the marriage when she was nine, and he was six times her age at fifty-four. So, all of these people continuing the practice in the remotest, most undeveloped areas Afghanistan and Yemen out of Islamic piety must actually be reading American or European blogs, right?

    Wrong. For example, there is Sahih Bukhari 7.62.88: "The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)."

    It is Islam's own texts and traditions that cause the practice to persist in places far removed from one another, and to appear where it had previously been unimaginable -- for example, Britain. "Islington girls forced into marriage at the age of nine," by Pavan Amara for the Islington Tribune, January 27:

    An alarming number of under-age girls – some as young as nine – are being forced into marriage in Islington, according to a leading campaign group.
    The Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO) claim that at least 30 girls in the borough were forced into marriage in 2010.

    The practice was condemned by the Imam of Finsbury Park Mosque, who said such marriages were against Islam and “unacceptable”.

    He pledged to invalidate any marriage which he said were carried out by “back-street Imams”.

    IKWRO, which made headlines last month when they revealed there had been almost 3,000 “honour-based” violence cases in 2010, has shown the Tribune records which revealed at least three 11-year-old girls and two nine-year-olds had been forced into marriage with older men within Islington. The oldest girls involved were 16.

    They have warned that hundreds of Islington girls could be suffering sexual, emotional and physical scars as a result of the child marriages every year and are calling for teachers, social workers and police to be better trained to spot and manage the abuse.

    Information from the Ministry of Justice, following a Freedom of Information request, revealed that 32 Forced Marriage Protection Order applications were made for children under 16 in Britain last year.

    Six of these were made for under-16s within Islington at the Royal Courts of Justice, although these were not necessarily made for Islington residents.

    At the Islington court, “five or fewer” orders were made to protect children between the ages of 9-11.

    The orders are a form of injunction that threaten legal punishment if marriage takes place due to emotional or physical force.

    In most cases, the children fear they will be killed if they reveal the truth to anybody, while others believe they will be separated from their families and taken into social services’ care.

    Dianna Nammi, director of IKWRO, explained that the girls are married in a mosque’s sharia court. This means they are not legally married according to British law, rendering the Home Office unable to recognise or prove the abuse.

    “They are still expected to carry out their wifely duties, though, and that includes sleeping with their husband,” she said.

    “They have to cook for them, wash their clothes, everything. They are still attending schools in Islington, struggling to do their primary school homework, and at the same time being practically raped by a middle-aged man regularly and being abused by their families. So they are a wife, but in a primary school uniform.
    That's not being "practically" raped. The practice will diminish when the law comes after the "husbands" and families with the force with which they would pursue child molesters and human traffickers. This is rape, and it is human trafficking.

    “The reason it doesn’t get out is because they are too terrified to speak out, and also the control their families have over them is impossible to imagine if you’re not going through it. The way it is covered up is so precise, almost unspeakable.”
    Ms Nammi said that one 13-year-old had to sneak out of a maths lesson to contact the group, because she was being monitored so closely by her family.

    “Her teacher didn’t notice because she said she’d gone to the toilet, but when she got home that day she was beaten,” she said.

    “Her father knew she hadn’t been in maths because he had sent an uncle to spy on who she was talking to through the classroom window.”

    Ms Nammi said that the girls are married off to family friends or family members to stop them from losing their virginity to anyone not chosen by their father.

    As young as nine. Heaven knows they're all going to become wild party animals at age 10.

    However, the incentive is also often financial.
    The financial aspect supports the human trafficking angle:

    “The girl automatically becomes her husband’s property, so he takes financial responsibility for her,” said Ms Nammi.
    “In fact, often the husband has to start contributing to the girl’s family, so it becomes a way of bringing in another salary.

    “Who are girls going to tell? Often they feel like teachers at school won’t understand what their families are like. They will think they’re like Western families, and won’t understand that if they pass on anything at all that they’ve been told to the family, then the girl will be killed. So they just chose not to tell at all.”....
    "It is therefore a profound truth that Socialism is the natural enemy of religion. A Christian Socialist is in fact an anti-Socialist. Christianity is the antithesis of Socialism" - Socialism and Religion, Socialist party of Great Britain, 1911.

    Goes to show that when they immigrate to other countries, they carry their practices with them in defiance of the laws of the countries they move to. That and islam is NOT a legitimate "religion"...

    And Islam purports to be "a religion of peace".....


    More like a religion of PIECES. Namely, pieces of innocent people, and in this case, children.


    To call Islam "barbaric" is a severe understatement, and this situation demonstrates that fact unquestionably. The entire basis of Islam is the dehumanization of people, with "Allah" at the top of the chain treating the men that follow him like complete dirt, and in rapid succession, his followers treating women and children in like fashion. Islam is the furthest thing from any sort of "human rights", because it is not interested in the equality of of individuals and people. Islam is built on dominance, and that dominance extends to all areas of life for a Muslim.

    To make matters worse, Islam is taking root in areas where people have no previous experience with Islam. Great Britain is finding out firsthand what happens when Islam gains a strong foothold, as is Dearborn, Michigan: when Islam gains a strong presence in an area, they drive out or forcibly convert anything or anyone who is not Islamic. They force their ways and culture on the population and will only "tolerate" other religions and cultures so long as it suits their purposes. As soon as they gain the majority anywhere, the takeover begins and everything else dies. To quote Imam of London, Sheikh Omar al-Bakri Muhammad: “We make no distinction between civilians and non-civilians, between innocent and guilty – only between Muslims and infidels. And the life of the infidel is rubbish!” (Source: “Publica,” Portugal. April 20, 2004)*

    And frankly, there is no such thing as "moderate Islam": the only difference is that a "Moderate Muslim" is one who is more patient in their means and timing than their "radical" brethren who use overt force. Their goals are the same; all that differs are the strategies and tactics.

    Islam is also incapable of any sort of "reform" or change; the reason for this that unlike the Bible, Islamic "scripture" is not allowed to be questioned and examined, but merely memorized and accepted. Any changes in Islam that are outside of what is written the Qur'an are attacks on the Qur'an, and therefore on Allah himself.* In simpler language: Islam is pretty much stuck in the 14th century, with no hope of ever getting out of that gargantuan rut.

    So, what does all of this have to do with 9 year old girls being married in the U.K. ? That the Imams in the U.K. claiming to be against it are simply practicing the Islamic concept of Taqiyya (lying), and have no intention of going against what the Qur'an has already said was permissible for them to practice. If the Qur'an says that Mohammed married a girl under the age of 10, Islamic believe they may do so as well.


    But the Qur'an is NOT the "word of God" and never has been; its' a Hodge-podge of Judaism, Christianity, and Middle-Eastern polytheism. Conversely, the Bible, which predates the Qur'an in its' last book (Revelation) by several centuries, IS the Word of God and has much to say about the topic at hand:

    "At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes! If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the fiery hell. See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 18:1-10, NASB, emphasis mine)

    God doesn't play games; He is calling to the people trapped in that murderous cult, drawing them to Him with cords of love. This includes the children who are trapped within that horrific system of rape, murder, barbaric beatings and utter depravity. But I wouldn't want to be the "Imams" when they have to stand before the Lord.

    Anyone who does anything to a child, I do believe having a millstone tied to there necks comes to mind. And here in America there are those who are working to have pedophilia destigmatized/leaglized. The defense of this? "They're born that way." "They don't have a choice in who they love." Sound familiar? Well it should, these lines were used so very successfully by the gay lobby. As in all things so many people these days have love and sex so mixed together that many find it inseperable. There are many people I love but who I have never and would never have any kind of sexual attraction to.

    This just makes me sick to my stomach. Not just the fact of the disgusting men who are "marrying" these poor girls, but the sheer hatred their parents must feel for their daughters to put them in this situation.

    My daughter just turned 8 yrs old this past week...she plays on the swings at the park, she has a stuffed monkey she calls bananas, she's gonna play soccer this summer.... I would die before I let some pig harm her in any way...shame on those mothers for not loving their own daughters the same.

    I know what you mean.

    I am sure there are probably some Muslim mothers who are totally without any say in the matter and have their hearts torn that their little girl has been given to some old man to have sex with when she should still be just a little girl. Some Muslim women even in a Western nation are made completely powerless.

    THIS is why we resist the evil of this "religion". It is a cult of subjugation and death. It WILL pass from the earth.
