Saudi Arabia’s top religious leader okays pedophilia

See that sweet little girl in the pic above?

You should know that the “religion of peace” says it’s perfectly okay for an adult male to “marry,” that is, rape the girl.

F. Michael Maloof reports for WND, Jan. 3, 2015, that none other than Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh, the country’s top religious authority in the ultra-conservative Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam, has ruled it’s acceptable for men to marry girls so young the West would deem it nothing short of pedophilia and rape.

As Grand Mufti, Abdulaziz is president of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and chairman of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing Fatwas, which means he speaks authoritatively in Islamic teachings.

The Saudi justice ministry had tried but failed to set 15 as a minimum age to marry a girl in the kingdom. But Grand Mufti Abdulaziz does it even “better,” declaring there is nothing prohibiting Muslim men from marrying girls even younger.

Grand Mufti Abdulzaiz’s more recent ruling on marrying young girls comes following a similar ruling in 2011 by Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, a prominent cleric and member of the Saudi’s highest religious council, who issued a fatwa, or religious edict, that there is no minimum age to marry girls, “even if they are in the cradle.”

There is nothing in Islamic, or Shariah law, that sets a minimum age limit on marrying girls.

Scholars say the age of marrying young girls and consummating the “marriage” is based on the example set by Muhammad when he married Aisha when she was no more than seven years of age, consummating the marriage when she was nine.

“The grand point of the Saudi fatwa, however, is not that girls as young as nine can be married, based on Muhammad’s example, but rather that there is no age limit whatsoever,” Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim writes in Middle East Forum. “The only question open to consideration is whether the girl is physically capable of handling her ‘husband.’ The lives of countless young girls are devastated because of this teaching.”

Ibrahim cited the cases of an 8-year-old girl who died on her “wedding” night when her “husband” raped her; and a 10-year-old girl who hid from her 80-year-old “husband.”

Grand Mufti Abdulaziz and Fawzan’s fatwas come even as Saudi men have been reportedly purchasing young girls from Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan.

As WND recently reported, rich Saudi Arabian men – some associated with the Saudi royal family – have been purchasing for their sexual pleasure Syrian girls and young women from among the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war conflict to Lebanon and Jordan.

Most of these Saudi men are said to be in their 60s and 70s. When they tire of the girls, they often hand them off to other men.

“They come into Lebanon and Jordan and go to the Syrian refugee camps where the Syrian families there have nothing,” one Lebanese source told WND. “The Saudis then offer $200 for girls aged 9 to 14 years and take them from their families. Because the families are so desperate for money, they give in to the temptation.”

The United States, allied with Saudi Arabia, has been silent on its treatment of young girls.

Insane Muslims are now cutting off tongues

In addition to their “standard” practices of stoning and beheading, FOTM has been chronicling the insanities of radical Islamists, from the ludicrous–

— to the grotesque beyond-belief barbarisms:

Add the cutting out of tongues to the list of grotesque barbarisms.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood revives barbaric practice of crucifixion

Some critics refer to Muslims as still mired in the 14th century because of their barbaric practices of beheading, stoning, and treatment of women. Given the latest news coming out of Egypt, we need to dial the time machine even further back to the first century A.D. and before because the Muslim Brotherhood are executing political opponents and Christians by crucifying them.

The Romans did not invent crucifixions, but they perfected it as a form of torture and capital punishment designed to produce a slow death with maximum pain and suffering. It was one of the most disgraceful and cruel methods of execution and usually was reserved only for slaves, foreigners, revolutionaries, and the vilest of criminals.

Michael Carl reports for WND that, not content with “their man” Mohammed “Jerusalem will be the capital of Egypt” Morsi being elected President and seizing control of the military, the radical Muslim Brotherhood are employing the primitive method of crucifixion against Morsi’s opponents.

Several different Middle East media confirm that during a recent rampage, Muslim Brotherhood operatives “crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.”

Raymond Ibrahim, a fellow with the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorism, said the Arabic media identify the crucifixions as the work of “supporters,” “followers” and “partisans” of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is a pan-Islamic theocracy. The victims are “anyone who is resisting the new government,” as well as Egyptian Christians who are treated with extra brutality.

Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow Clare Lopez cited chapter and verse from the Quran to explain that crucifixions are not simply normal for Islam, they’re demanded. Lopez explains:

“Crucifixion is a hadd punishment, stipulated in the Quran, Sura 5:33, and therefore an obligatory part of Shariah. It’s been a traditional punishment within Islam since the beginning, even though it’s not exclusively Islamic. The Romans used it too. So, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood haven’t the option to not include crucifixion within their legal code. It’s obligatory to comply with Shariah. And yes, it’s for shock value also to be sure.”

Lopez warns Egypt’s Christians to leave, comparing the coming persecution to what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany: “The Copts must get out of Egypt as soon as possible – for the many millions who will not be able to get out, I expect things will continue to deteriorate – just as they did for Germany’s and Europe’s Jews from the 1930s onward. The warnings were there long before the ghettos and round-ups and one-way train trips to the concentration camps began in the 1940s.”

UPDATE (Aug. 23):

Since I first posted this story, doubts have been heaped on it — that the story is a hoax concocted by those devious “Jews.” Well, WND has a new article confirming the crucifixion report: http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/video-report-confirms-egyptian-crucifixions/

Here’s a video confirmation of the story by the Arabic-language Abu Dhabi-based Sky News Arabia :

Walid Shoebat, a former radicalized Muslim who converted to Christianity and is today an acknowledged terrorism expert and Arabic translator, told WND several Arab newspapers also referenced the crucifixions as a fact, and that a number of websites had reported on the situation, including one that posted an image of a man who had been targeted, but apparently survived with a gaping would in his side.

Al-Wai Al-Arabi (Arab Awakening) is another source that took a photo of a naked man covered with a blanket who was rescued from the crucifixion, said Shoebat, confirming that the Arabic text says victims were crucified on trees in front of the palace.

Shoebat said the Lawyers Union in Egypt investigated the story and demanded a probe, accusing Egypt’s new president Mohammed Morsi of preventing the Republican Guards from intervening to rescue what they termed Muslim Brotherhood gangs on “what seemed as the most despicable attack on civilians.”
