According to this muhammadan genius, a girl is ready for marriage at age 9, because if pedophile Muhammad did it, so should the modern day muslim.

(ANSAmed) – RABAT, SEPTEMBER 8 – “A nine-year-old girl has the same sexual capacities like a woman of twenty and over”. Thus reads a fatwa issued by Skeikh Mohamed Ibn Abderrahmane Al-Maghraoui, according to Moroccan daily ‘Aujourd’hui Le Maroc’. This immediately sparked off a hot debate, with most of the public opinion absolutely against this stance which is a permit for paedophilia, many say, among other things. Among the various stances against the fatwa (in the Islamic culture, a decree of religious character issued by Islamic experts which regulates issues of topical character), the daily reported those of extremist MP Abdelbari Zamzami and the president of association ‘No one touches my children’, Najia Adib. Zamzami, referring to the fact that Al-Maghraoui wanted to make his fatwa unassailable reminding that Muhammad “married Aisha who was nine”, reiterated that the sheikh used the event as a pretext for this “scandalous practice”. “The era of our Prophet is completely different from ours,” he said on the issue. “These days a marriage of the kind would be a true injustice towards the girl. A true aberration.” “Aberrant” was also the judgement of Najia Adib (‘No one touches my children’), according to whom “this sheikh is simply encouraging paedophilia. If he is so deeply convinced of what he thinks, let’s tell him to get his daughter married”. But perhaps, she explains, this unknown sheikh was searching a little media attention. And concluded her interview with the Moroccan daily: “This type of people look at Islam from the point of view which is convenient for them. It is a restrictive vision of Islam. And it is bad. Fatwas like these show the lack of reasoning from those who issue them. I cannot understand via what intellectual road or for what mental construction they come to such aberrations”. The law in Morocco envisages the minimum age for getting married at 18 years for both men and women. Marrying below this age requires the consent of the parents and of a judge. But it refers to teenagers not children. (ANSAmed).

    the gag value is strong in this story. This sheik is perverse and a pedophile. We all know what happens to pedophiles in the US prison system, the most forgiving act being death. If only he would wander this way…

    idiriot, your gag value is strong as well. Grown men CANNOT be sexually attracted to a young child. I use the term grown man lightly seeing as most Muslims are overgrown/undersexed boys with more issues than the daily newspaper.
    A child of 9 is not mentally or physically ready for sex and anyone of any religion or nationality that says otherwise should be locked up with the nastiest of the nasty. That’s how the cow ate the cabbage son!!
