“Girls married 60 times before 18” – Egypt’s Child Sex Tourism

Islamic spokesturds keep telling us that Nikāḥ al-MutÊ¿ah, temporary marriage, is a shiite thing, but when you take  a closer look you’ll quickly find that righteous sunni Muslims take even more advantage of Islamic sex slavery.

“Girls married 60 times before 18” – Egypt’s Child Sex Tourism

YouTube video from the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood promotes women’s political rights in Egypt. The NCCM says women’s inequality is reflected in sham marriages for teenage girls that  are a form of child prostitution.

As if we needed more discouraging news out of the turmoil in Egypt, a shocking report says that thousands of teenage girls are being sold by their parents to wealthy Arab male tourists under the pretext of marriage in a barely-disguised form of child prostitution.

“The sham nuptials may last from a couple of hours to years,” says a story entitled “Underage Girls are Egypt’s Summer Rentals” by Cam McGrath from the Inter Press Service News Agency.

“It’s a form of child prostitution in the guise of marriage,” Azza El-Ashmawy, director of the Child Anti-Trafficking Unit at the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood told the IPS.

“Some girls have been married 60 times by the time they turn 18,” she said. ” Most ‘marriages’ last for just a couple of days or weeks.”

McGrath explains that temporary marriages allow the male buyers to get around Islamic restrictions on pre-marital sex.

He reports that the trade has increased since Egypt’s 2011 revolution ushered in a period of economic collapse along with crumbling law enforcement.

McGrath describes the scene in  El Hawamdia, an impoverished town 20 kilometres outside of Cairo.

Well-dressed Arab men “troll the town’s pot-holed, garbage-strewn streets in their luxury cars and SUVs” as “fixers” run alongside offering them apartments — and underage girls — for rent.

A NCCM survey of 2,000 families in three towns near Cairo  found that “the hefty sums paid by Arab tourists was the main motive for the high rate” of so-called “summer marriages” in these areas.

Three-quarters of the respondents said that they knew girls involved in the trade and that the number of marriages was increasing.

According to the survey, more than 80 percent of the male “spouses” were from Saudi Arabia, 10 percent from the United Arab Emirates, and four percent from Kuwait.

The IPS story says that since sexual relations with minors is illegal in Egypt, brokers forge birth certificates or substitute the identity card of a girl’s older sister.

It says a “pleasure” marriage can be arranged for as little as 800 Egyptian pounds (about $120 Canadian dollars).

Sandy Shinouda with the Counter-Trafficking Unit of the  International Organisation of Migration in Cairo told IPS that  most of the young girls come from large families for whom marriage to a wealthier foreigner offers an escape from poverty.

“The family considers her as a commodity,” she told the IPS. “The girls know their families have exploited them…they can understand that their parents sold them.”

  1. “… marriages for teenage(so old?) girls that are a form of child prostitution”

    PEDOPHILIA, ALLOWED BY ALLAH AND PATRONIZED BY PROPHET

    Pedophilia in the Qur’an (65:4, the ugliest verse)
    The exact translation (below 2nd video) of this portion of Qur’an 65:4 is “Not menstruated yet”
    (لَمْ يَحِضْنَ “Wallaee Lam yahidhna”)

    Page 180 “… How many people would let a 54-year-old man sleep with their nine-year-old daughter? Abu Bakr did. This requires extreme foolishness. This much foolishness is only possible through blind faith.”

    http://schnellmann.org/the-child-bride-of-muhammad.html

  2. Such ignorance! This chapter gives a separated woman rights which we still don’t have in the West. Verse 4 says that the separation period – for women who have reached menopause and for those who are in doubt that they have reached menopause – is three months.
    For those who are pregnant; the separation period is until they give birth.

    The Arabs did not marry their daughters until after their first period which was about 13-14 years at that time.
    In the year that Muhammad married Aisha; the Battle of Badr took place and Aisha was a part of it. Muhammad’s rule was that no one under the age of 15 was allowed on the battlefield. So; Aisha was at least 14/15 years at the time of her marriage.

    Go to Hindu websites and you will see that Muhammad married Aisha at 6 years. They want to show that their Hindu God, Ram, was not the only one who was a pedophile and rapist. Ram married Sita when she was only six years and when Sita was able to have a daughter; Ram raped the child because he said that the girl was impure.

    Any man (Muslim or not) who have sex with a child is committing a crime. All these rich Arabs in this article should be jailed. They cannot condone their actions by saying that these marriages are legal.
    Here are good examples of pedophiles taking advantage of the poor by exploiting children for sex. This is a problem in many poor countries: India, Thailand, Pakistan, Cuba, Hungary, Romania etc.

  3. ram & sita didnt/does not exist! & no one can copy the behavior of a god. nor does their book say “go out & do likewise”. moham & fellow travelers are considered real people & an example for beleivers to copy! it isn’t considered a crime!! its considered exalted behavior!! the arabs wrote the book, whos gonna arrest them? wait 3 months?? for a 6 or 9yr. old? do the math dimwit

  4. Al-Kenneth, as do all criminal gangsterss (muslims, leftists) pretends to cause-and-effect-free irrationality and idolatrous pre-determination as his excuse and alibi to avoid the truth:

    Stephanie quotes Qur’an Sura 65:4, which Sura states:

    65 Divorce

    At-Talaq: Madani

    In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.

    0 PROPHET WHEN you divorce women,
    divorce them at their appointed period,
    and calculate that period,
    and fear God, your Lord.

    I THOUGHT YOU SAID EARLIER THAT ANY WOMAN WHO LEAVES YOU CANNOT REMARRY!

    ;-(

    Do not expel them from their houses,
    nor should they go away themselves,
    unless they are openly guilty of adultery.
    These are the limits set by God.
    Anyone who exceeds the limits set by God
    sins against his own self.
    You never know that God may perchance lead
    to a new situation after this.
    2. When they have reached their appointed time,
    then either keep them lawfully or let them go honourably;
    but have two witnesses from among you,
    and give truthful evidence for (being acceptable to) God.
    This is to warn him who believes in God and the Last Day.
    God will furnish a way out for him who fears Him,
    3. And provide for him from where he does not reckon.
    God is sufficient for him who places his trust in Him.
    Certainly God fulfills His purpose.
    God has indeed fixed a measure of every thing.
    4. As for your women who have lost hope of
    menstruation,
    and in case you have a doubt,
    the prescribed period (of waiting) for them is three months,
    as also for those who have not menstruated yet.

    I.E: “THE PRE-PUBESCENT GIRLS YOU HAVE DIVORCED MUST WAIT 3 MONTHS BEFOE BEING REMARRIED!”

    ;-(

    As for those who are pregnant,
    their prescribed period is until the delivery of the child.

    I.E: “YOU CANNOT DIVORCE PREGNANT WIVES UNTIL RIGHT AFTER THEY HAVE DELIVERED THE CHILDREN!”

    ;-(

    God will make things easy for him who is mindful of God.

    I.E: “GOD MAKES DIVORCING HIS WIVES EASY FOR MUHAMMAD!”

    😉

    5. This is the commandment of God that is sent down to you.
    God will forgive the ills of those who fear Him,
    and increase their reward.

    …and then he immediately asserts that:

    “The Arabs did not marry their daughters until after their first period which was about 13-14 years at that time.
    In the year that Muhammad married Aisha; the Battle of Badr took place and Aisha was a part of it. Muhammad’s rule was that no one under the age of 15 was allowed on the battlefield. So; Aisha was at least 14/15 years at the time of her marriage.”

    This despite the clear evidence from the Qur’an, and of course Aiysha’s own clearly-recorded personal accounts of her “marriage” to Muhammad when she was six, as recorded in both Bukhari and Moslem – the two most ‘Sahih’ or official ahadiths.

    This blatant disregard for the objective facts proves something I’ve noticed: Arguing with liberals (or muslims, or any other kind of lying fraudulent criminal) is like playing chess with a pigeon: no matter how good you are at chess, the pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around like it’s victorious.

    Liberal insanity isn’t static after all, except in its premises: Since leftists (and muslims) insist there are no facts because “we” are all helpless victims (of society, products of our environments, slaves of allah) and so too stupid to understand all the causes and effects, there might as well be no cause and effect at all, so all facts are really ever only opinions anyway, and so their fact-free subjective opinions are the diversely opposite equals to our sily objective facts, they will ALWAYS deflect away from even the most objectively proven facts, by insisting on pretending to imagine they have not already been proven, and so will always present fact-free imagined fantasy opinions as facts (lying, fraud) as they seek to steal the truth in order to avoid being proven wrong. So obviously, such criminals shouldn’t be allowed to vote, because they will always vote for less law and more “progressive” crime!

  5. “… The Arabs did not marry their daughters until AFTER THEIR FIRST PERIOD(?) which was about 13-14 years at that time.”

    65.4 “If you divorce your (child) wife BEFORE she reaches menstruation age her idda (waiting period) is three months“.

    According to this aya a Muslim man can marry (and have sex with) even a one day old infant girl (see also 33:49 no iddah when you do NOT touched them in sexual way).

    http://schnellmann.org/Muhammad_the_Pedophile.html

  6. (1.) Menopause, (2.) to young for menstruation,
    (3.) pregnant

    Allah 65:4 “(1.) Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, (2.) and for those who have NO COURSES (it is the same): (3.) for those who carry (life within their wombs), their period is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.”

    Exact translation (3.): “Not menstruated yet”
    (لَمْ يَحِضْنَ “Wallaee Lam yahidhna”)

  7. Women’s Rights in Islam: OK to Marry 1 Year Old Girls

    Dr. Ahmad Al-Mub’i, a Saudi Marriage Officiant: It Is Allowed to Marry a Girl at the Age of One, If Sex Is Postponed. The Prophet Muhammad, Whose Model We Follow, Married ‘Aisha When She Was Six and Had Sex with Her When She Was Nine.

    Following are excerpts from an interview with Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu’bi, a Saudi marriage officiant, which aired on LBC TV on June 19, 2008.

    ooo OOO ooo

    Mature men are allowed to marry prepubescent girls in Islam.

    The Quran in Sura 65:1, 4 says:
    65:1 O Prophet, when you (and the believers) divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed waiting-period and count the waiting-period accurately . . . 4 And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet. As for pregnant women, their period ends when they have delivered their burden. (Maududi, vol. 5, pp. 599 and 617)

    Maududi correctly interprets the plain meaning of verse 4, which appears in the context of divorce:

    Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for girls who have not yet menstruated, clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl at this age but it is permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her. Now, obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Qur’an has held as permissible. (Maududi, vol. 5, p. 620, note)

    Divorcing prepubescent girls implies marriage to them. So the fathers of prepubescent girls may give them away, and their new husbands may consummate their marriage with them. If Islam ever spread around the world, no one should be surprised if Quran-believing 2Muslims lowered the marriage age of girls to nine years old.

    ooo OOO ooo

    Minimum marriage age in various Islamic countries:

    Brunei: no minimum marriage age specified

    Kuwait: no substantive minimum marriage age identified

    Iran: Civil Code provides that marriage contracted before puberty is invalid unless authorized by natural guardian with ward’s best interests in mind. When authorized before puberty, minimum age is nine. Marriages between Muslim women and non-Muslim men are not recognized

    Palestinian Territories of West Bank and Gaza Strip: Gaza Strip- LFR 1954 required puberty and made 9 (female) and 12 (male) minimum ages; Palestinian Qadi al-Quda issued administrative decision in 1995 raising these to 15 female and 16 male.

    Sudan: Puberty, with requirement for willing consent of both parties.

    Yemen: 9

    All ages by lunar years

  8. @Uncle Vladdi: Don’t quote what I did not say. Pedophilia is found in all the religious books except the Quran. So non-Muslims seek to vilify Islam and Muhammad by making up stories of pedophilia about the prophet.
    Fourteen years was acceptable for a young woman to get married at that time.
    Let me remind you that the age of consent in our own Western society was 14 years just a few decades ago. It is now 16.

  9. @Stephanie:
    Take the log out of your eyes if you want to understand these verses.
    Listen, you, yourself will soon “despaired of menstruation.” That means women who have stopped menstruating. It does not refer to pre-pubescent girls.
    65:1 reads:
    O Prophet! When YE do divorce women; divorce them at their prescribed waiting periods ….”
    (a)The command addresses the prophet himself and his followers (YE)
    (b) Since when “women” mean pre-pubescent girls?
    (c) The divorce waiting period for non-menstruating women and those who are in doubt that they have stopped menstruating is three months.
    (d) If the women is pregnant; then the man has to wait until the child is born before he can proceed with divorce. Something which our Western society – which cares so much for women – have failed to do.
    (e) Understand that divorce is frowned upon (but not forbidden.) A waiting period is like a “cooling-off” period; hoping that both parties will come to their senses after the time has elapsed. Compare to our “quickie” divorces that we have in the West.

  10. @Stephanie:
    The Arabs are no different from us. The Dr. Ahmad you mentioned is just a pervert who falsifies his religion to satisfy his appetite for sex with children. No where in the Quran will you find pedophilia.
    Christians, Mormons and Hindus have also used their religious texts to condone their pedophilia and incestuous relationships.

  11. Hadiths are just what people “heard” the prophet said. Many of the so-called authentic hadiths reflect the misogynistic views of the reporters.
    And there are many false “authentic” hadiths.
    In those days; women were mere chattels. The prophet uplifted their status by granting them inheritance, property rights, divorce rights etc. But some men wanted to preserve the status quo. So, they came up with false “authentic” sayings of the prophet. Never mind those sayings were in conflict with the Quran and how the prophet lived his life.

    1. You just keep on lyin’ don’t you, “al-kenneth”?!

      Before Moe came along, women ran businesses, held and owned property, and didn’t have to cover themselves in their funeral shrouds “lest they incite the poor helpless men’s uncontrollable lusts.” (33:59)

      Moe’s first wife, Khadija, ran a succesful transportation security firm, which had hired Moe on as a caravan guard when they first met.

      Before Moe, women and whildren were forbidden as spoils and booty in their tribal wars; after Moe, women and children were fair game.

      As for you ridiculous claims that ” there are many false “authentic” hadiths” – if you weren’t so obviously involved in kitman, taqiyya, and dawa, your peers would be required to behead you for claiming such blatant and heretical nonsense!

      The two most sahih (official) collections of ahadith, Moslem and Bukhari, are perfectly reflected in the Tabari histories and in Ibn Ishaq’s sanitized rendition of Ibn Hisham’s sirat rasul allah.

      Who do you think you’re trolling here, on this site? We are all quite well versed in all the many details of your most official islamic doctrines, yet here you are, making the most counter-factual assertions one could ever imagine. I’d almost like to thank you for the entertainment, but your arrogant bluster counters that benefit.

      The ahadith are ancillary, explanatory notes, quite necessary for the propagation of islam; without the details listed there, no muslim would know how to pray, for instance. The isnads have all been scrupulously verified ad nauseum, and the tafsirs vetted by ALL muslim scholars.

      Please go peddle your camel urine elsewhere.

    2. “Kenneth”, you are barking up the wrong tree.

      The first thing you need to do is to convince your co-religionists that they got their Islam wrong, not the commenters on an anti-jihad website like this.

      But anyhow, please go ahead and tell us in which way Maududi was a bigger misogynist than rasool allah, we are really interested.

      Anyhow: what are your scholarly credentials that you come here lecturing us on stuff that has been debunked time and time again?

    4:34 is a good example. They have used the ‘beat” word instead of ” leave. “The word is used twice more in the same chapter and many times more in the Quran to mean “leave.” But according to them; if a couple is experiencing marital problems; the man should not leave. Instead, he should beat his wife.

    And why is it that many people who claim to have the interests of Muslim women at heart, think that the translation should be “beat” instead of “leave”, when the Quran says that there should be a separation and mediation period, and if the problems cannot be solved, a divorce?
    If anyone has a better solution to solve marital problems; let us hear about it. And, don’t tell us that the Catholic solution, where the woman must stay in a hostile environment; is the best solution.
