There are Muslims of every nationality: Egyptian, Indonesian, British; of every race: Negro, Asian, Caucasian; members of many cultures and inhabiting every continent on this planet. Eventually of course, there will only be Muslims in this world, but that's not important at the moment. The topic today is that Muslim diversity makes it impossible for someone to blame Muslims for any of their barbaric practices (1).
True to form, a reader of mine, Durrie left a comment yesterday (2) to my article How to get a Muslim`s goat - sex with animals writing that I know nothing about Islam, that my complaint applied only to Shiites and Iranians and not to Sunnis and Arabs. Now here's the interesting part, Durrie wrote, "in islam even if you marry a small girl you cant take her home until the age of puberty and when she reaches puberty she has the right to tell her parents whether she wants to go with you or end the marriage then and there."
I have written previously that Muslims are in Denial about their religion. If Durrie would just read the news instead of keeping his head exclusively in the Qur'an he would have come across this article:
The debate over the controversial practice of child marriage in Saudi Arabia was pushed back into the spotlight this week, with the kingdom's top cleric saying that it's OK for girls as young as 10 to wed.
"It is incorrect to say that it's not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and younger," Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh, the kingdom's grand mufti, said in remarks quoted Wednesday in the regional Al-Hayat newspaper. "A girl aged 10 or 12 can be married. Those who think she's too young are wrong and they are being unfair to her."
Late last month, a Saudi judge refused to annul the marriage of an 8-year-old girl to a 47-year-old man.
The judge, Sheikh Habib Abdallah al-Habib, rejected a petition from the girl's mother, whose lawyer said the marriage was arranged by her father to settle a debt with "a close friend." The judge required the girl's husband to sign a pledge that he would not have sex with her until she reaches puberty.
So the question here is, if Durrie is correct that a girl can decide for herself when she reaches puberty, why is the mother petitioning the court for anything? The mother only has to wait for her daughter to reach puberty and tell the old fart to pound salt. Anyone believe that? It is also revealing that the judge asked the man to sign a pledge. If Durrie were right about Islam, then no legal pledge would be required - it would just be part of the Qur'an.
As I said, Muslims are in denial about their own religion.
Planck's Constant, We Are Asked Not to Criticize Muslims
If I write that Muslim Honor Killings against women has brought brutality to a level worthy of primitive savages, the defense is that this is a Middle Eastern thing, not a Muslim-wide concept and that less than 20% of Muslims are from the Middle East, therefore I cannot attack the entirety of Islam for the beliefs of a paltry few hundred million Middle-Eastern Muslims.
If I write that Muslim Female Genital Mutilation occurs every 10 seconds in Africa and is an abomination that tortures its victims for their entire lives, the defense is that this is an African cultural thing, not a Muslim-wide concept and that less than 30% of Muslims are from Africa, therefore I cannot attack the entirety of Islam for the beliefs of a paltry few hundred million African Muslims.
SO let me get this straight, because not all Muslims are Arabs, not all Arabs are Muslims, not all Muslims are African, not all Africans are Muslims, that Muslims are Chinese, Indonesian, Arab, African, white, black, brown and yellow, because some Islamic practices like al taqiyya, or deception against the infidels, is practised by Shia but not by Sunni Muslims, because I cannot say with absolute certainty that all Muslims are alike, therefore I cannot criticize any Muslim beliefs, practices, or savageries, because these different barbarities are practiced by different sects, cultures, races of Muslims? Is that it Ahmed?
Comment, by Durrie
you know nothing about Islam
and Ayatullah khomeini is a Shi'ite
which is not evena pure form of islam
and also to inform you ayatullah is from iran not hte arab world
and also to tell you that the sudanese man was married to the goat as punishment
and also to tell you that what ayatullah said about fornicating with goats is not allowed in pure islam
ayatullah follows a form of islam created after the pprophet died
and also to tell you that in islam even if you marry a small girl you cant take her home until the age of puberty and
when she reaches puberty she has the right to tell her parents whether she wants to go with you or end the marriage then and there
Please next time do your home work
you know nothng
if yu are so desperate to comment against islam first go and study the Sunni sect of islam and then try to find flaws
in that and if you have any problems or question sI will gladly help you out.
