Why Islam and Modern Societies Clash
Islam and most western cultures are incompatible. Many think it can be fixed or tolerated when both groups need to. But, at the most basic level they appear to be at opposite ends of humane treatment.
For example, in Saudi Arabia, Muslim law and its religion, Islam, allows the horrible practice of chlid marriages. The culture encourages it in many Islamic states. I mean, Prophet Muhammad had a wife names Aisha, she was 7 yrs. old. In 2006, a Saudi judge sentenced a young woman to 200 lashes and months in prison for MERELY being alone in a car with a man she was not related to.
NEVER MIND THAT THE GUY RAPED HER!
In 2008, two reporters for a mainstream newspaper there were sentenced for execution because they told their readers that there are other religions worthy of their respect. It was only at the intervention of the King and world opinion that the sentences were commuted.
Islam promotes a sick custom of parents marrying off their girls, as young as 7 or 8 yrs. old. Can you imagine this? Some 45 yr old man marrying your 8 yr old, knowing full well he his going to have sex with her? Gross...Gross...Gross.
In 2009, the Saudi Court refused to allow a 8 yr old girl a divorce. Yes, you heard me right, DIVORCE. While the Court refused her a divorce, they did issue an order for the husband not to have sex with her until age 12 or 13. Of course, who in the world is going to make sure that does not happen? Make me laugh! Even though Saudi's Justice Mohammed al-Issa advised the King that Saudi law should change so a girl 18 yrs or younger cannot get married, the old clerics who control domestic policy have ignored it.
In 2010, a 12 yr old girl requested a divorce be granted from her--80 yr old -- husband, even though her father had been paid $22,000 to allow the marriage. The divorce never happened.
Saudi Arabia is only but one Muslim nation dealing with this sort of perversion. Sorry, that is what it is. Turkey, a NATO country, last year passed a new law allowing a 12 yr old girl to get married, if parents agree. This is an indication that the Islamic law is skewing the secular law of Turkey, which up to now, was much more like European countries.
The girl marriage issue is only one of many perverted issues that Islam force upon muslims in the name of Allah, which nobody in the West agrees with. Hopefully, Saudi Arabia will come to the 21st Century and rid itself of Islam's most horrible laws.
