the balls on this girl are bigger than mine (no they're not, just a figure of speech. I am trying to be funny whilst pointing out her obvious courage). We now need a westernized Muslim to defend the Muslim culture... Is there someone on this website that is willing to defend the Muslim culture? no? that's probably because there's nothing to defend. I could be wrong, but we will never find out unless someone else puts the record straight.

Islam requires the consent of two people for a marriage and secondly the consent of the parents of both people. Any of these 6 members object to the marriage the marriage is invalid islamically

Middle eastern Muslims don't agree with what you've just said and we know this from that 11 yo girl, unless... it's a Jewish conspiracy (as Current events mentioned) to make the Muslims look bad. It's strange how Muslims in the west do things differently than the ones in the Middle east. Consider racism and prejudice in America: most white folks think All black folk are lazy criminals but we know that this generalization is absurd since not all black people are lazy criminals (neil degrasse tyson, just to name one) which leads me to believe that the prejudiced perception was created because there are a large number of them who are actually lazy or/and criminals. Take the french: people say thy are rude arrogant snobs but we know that not all of them are like that, however, after speaking to non-french people who work with french customers every day i now feel that most (if not all) french people are rude arrogant snobs. Te same applies for muslims: not all muslims are so "medievally extreme"(to say the least) but the prejudice was formed for a number of reasons, just like in the case of black people in America or the french in Europe. So my question is: why should people believe what you have to say about muslims instead of their own legitimately preconceived ideas about muslims, ideas that are enforced every day with videos such as this one (which is a pretty soft video, considering what some muslims are putting on the web now days)? have you seen the video of the self appointed "islamic police in london? Anyway, you're trying to make it look as if this is an exception to the norm (the norm being what you've just said) but that little girl said that these type of marriages are the norm (among other norms).

I live in the Middle East, I am from Lebanon specifically the city of tripoli. Please do not teach me of my own religion, what you see in these videos are strictly culture related and masked by ignorant people as religious rules or tradition. Our religioun is not a culture neither is it a tradition, once any one has mixed the two then it is no longer Islam. Islam has clear rules, please read and inform your self before taking the opinion of an 11 year old girl. As sad as her story is, it is unfair to generalize the 1.6 billion Muslims.

fair enough! however, as you said, there are people who mask the culture as religion and after a couple of generation the culture becomes integrated in the religion (25th of December is not the birthday of Jesus, just an example, but all Christians say that it is) in order to appeal to people; what you are saying is "take my word for it and don't believe the videos". I'm sorry i can't do that, but what i can do is link you to videos where a lot of young men yell alah Akbar while killing other men, i can link you to videos where Imams call for Jihad, videos where imams teach you the proper way to beat your wife, etc etc. So why should i listen to what you have to say about Islam when this IMAM (not a regular western muslim Joe like you) has this to say about underage marriages LINK . It looks to the paranoid me that you're trying to cover up the truth by pretending to speak from authority with statements like ""Please do not teach me of my own religion,"". If the paranoid me is wrong and you're not trying to cover up anything then It seems to me that you are unaware of the reality of your own religion.

Now you are just playing it childishly. Using Internet to pull out videos as evidence that Islam is a Violent and Irrational religion is ridiculous. I need to remind you that Islam is the fastest growing religion on earth ( research it if you don't believe it and I'm talking about the number of converts) so this religion is obviously something reasonable for 1.6 billion people to accept it as thier faith, now I don't have to care what you think because regardless my religion will continue to grow. But I feel obliged to let you know the truth. Anyways I admit to that th Arab world has done an amazing job of destroying islams image but there are reasons to that. Don't take things out of context, have you ever asked why muslim Arabs preach about jihad or why they are so hostile to the western world? Have you ever seen these types of scene coming out of Indonesia,Malaysia, china, Bangladesh, Bosnia, so on so forth(all of which are muslim majority countries).. I don't think so, and that because the west hasn't yet ****** with them yet( excuse my language) but seriously you cannot march into countries divide and conquer it and spread your bases across our lands and expect people to love your presence. It's a simple concept, if you still don't get it, turn the tables, how. Would u feel? Anyways stop looking at the Middle East as a representative of Islam, it only represents 20% of the muslim world , and if you want to hear islamic laws on various issues, a man with traditional closing and a long beard doesn qualify him to speak. There are public legitimate entities like Al-azhar who are qualified to speak correctly about Islam.

Latest comment: first of all i would like to address the following statement "" Now you are just playing it childishly. Using Internet to pull out videos as evidence that Islam is a Violent and Irrational religion is ridiculous"" there's no logic in that, it just your frustrated opinion. Empirical or not, it is evidence and it counts and it is what we all see; it also happens to be true (do you want me to link you to the Imam that teaches men how to beat up their wife?). I must look at the middle east when talking about Islam because it's the birth place of the religion. I must also address this statement "so this religion is obviously something reasonable for 1.6 billion people to accept it as thier faith, now I don't have to care what you think because regardless my religion will continue to grow." reasonable and faith are 2 contradicting concepts, if anything you have 1.6 billion unreasonable people, and the number keeps growing. "have you ever asked why muslim Arabs preach about jihad or why they are so hostile to the western world?" yes, i did actually, it's because they respect the same principle as the jews: an eye for an eye which is basically revenge, now how smart is that? jews and Muslim share the same principle. so ok, a man with Islamic clothes and traditional clothing is not automatically qualified to speak in the name of islam, lucky for me i found this article: LINK "" Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The scholars are unanimously agreed that the father may arrange a marriage for his young daughter without consulting her. The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) married ‘Aa’ishah when she was six years old. End quote from at-Tamheed, 19/98 "" is this qualified enough for you? Islamic Law states that if a girl passes puberty, she is allowed to be married - regardless of whether she is 9, 11, 15 etc . This is a fact! your initial statement "Islam requires the consent of two people for a marriage and secondly the consent of the parents of both people. Any of these 6 members object to the marriage the marriage is invalid islamically " is false, which leads me to believe that you are lying about it purposely, or you are unaware of the macabre reality of your medieval religion.

Given MEMRI seems to have been set up by a former colonel in the Israeli military intelligence and an Israeli-born, American political scientist, I'm deeply sceptical of this video. My first reaction is to lump it with LINK

This is hypocrisy from this Jewish/Mossad organisation who believe that it is lawful to have sex with a (non-Jewish) girl over 3 years and a day! According to the Tannaïte Rabbis, MOSES had ordered the Israelites to kill all women older than three years and a day, because they were "suitable for having sexual relations." Also interesting is that in the Vatican - the age of consent is 12 years, 13 in Spain/Portugal. Did you also know that in most countries of the World Christians are described as cannibals? Due to the crusaders killing every human and animal and burning the crops. They had no food left so they ate the bodies of the dead! Abuse of children is WRONG in all Religions, Nations and people. You will find mad people in all nations, Religions and non-religious people too. The current killing of several MILLION people in the Middle East is not going to make us more likeable in the reset of the World any more than the despicable acts of a few people as pointed out in this video.
