I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF CYNTHIA MCKINNEY AND THE OTHER FOLKS ON THE GAZA FLOTTILA ARE AWARE OF SUCH THINGS AS WELL AS WHAT THEIR STANCE IS.
MANY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW THAT IT GOES ON. EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW, BUT THE WESTERN MEDIA DOES NOT REPORT EVENTS SUCH AS THIS ONE.
Muhammed married a six year old bride. But Islam has evolved in 1500 years. In Hamas land, in 2009, the brides are almost seven.
Mass Muslim Marriage in Gaza
450 Grooms Wed GIRLS Under Ten In Gaza
by Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.
A gala event has occurred in Gaza.
Hamas sponsored a mass wedding for four hundred and fifty couples.
Most of the grooms were in their mid to late twenties; most of brides were under ten.
Muslim dignitaries including Mahmud Zahar, a leader of Hamas, were on hand to congratulate the
couples who took part in the carefully staged celebration.
We are saying to the world and to America that you cannot deny us joy and happiness, Zahar told the grooms, all of whom were dressed in identical black suits and hailed from the nearby Jabalia refugee camp.
Each groom received a gift of 500 dollars from Hamas.
The pre-pubescent girls, dressed in white gowns and adorned with garish make-up, received bridal bouquets.
We are presenting this wedding as a gift to our people who stood firm in the face of the siege and the war, local Hamas strongman Ibrahim Salaf said in a speech.
The wedding photos tell the rest of the sordid tale.
The International Center for Research on Women now estimates that there are
51 million child brides now living on planet earth and almost all in Muslim countries.
Twenty-nine percent of these child brides are regularly beaten and molested by their
husbands in Egypt; twenty six percent receive similar abuse in Jordan.
Every year, three million Muslim girls are subjected to genital mutilation, according to
UNICEF. This practice has now been outlawed in many parts of America.
The Islamic practice of pedophilia dates back to the prophet Muhammad, who amassed
eleven wives and many concubines after the death of his first wife Khadijah in 619 A.D.
After Muhammad's elderly wife, Khadijah, died in 619 A.D., he amassed eleven wives.
He arranged the visits to the tents of his women around their menstrual cycles. His
capacity for sexual congress seemed to be boundless. Sahih Bukhari, one of the most
revered Islamic texts, recounts: The Prophet used to visit his wives in a round, during
the day and night, and they were eleven in number. I asked Anas, Had the Prophet
the strength for it? Anas replied, We used to say that the Prophet had the [sexual] stamina
of thirty [men].
For in-between treats, the Prophet kept a stable of concubines, including Reihana,
his Jewish captive. His wives and mistresses were compelled by Islamic law to satisfy his
sexual needs at any time of the day or night, and the Prophet reserved the right to enjoy
them from the top of their heads to the bottom of their feet. 
This might not appear shocking to students of the Kinsey Report, except for the case
of Aisha, Muhammad's favourite wife. Aisha was the daughter of Abu Bakr, the Prophet's
closest friend and most faithful follower. As soon as Muhammad laid eyes on Aisha, he
came to fantasize having sex with her. There was a problem with this fantasy.
Aisha, at that time, was a small child of four or five, while Muhammad was a middle-aged man of fifty.
Still and all, the Prophet wasted no time in making his fantasy a reality. When Aisha turned six,
Muhammad asked Abu Bakr for his daughter's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr thought that such
a union would be improper - not because Aisha was a mere child but rather because he considered himself Muhammad's brother. The Prophet quickly brushed aside this objection by saying that the union was perfectly right in the eyes of Allah. Abu Bakr consented. And Muhammad took the little girl as his new bride.
