In order to pay off a debt incurred by her mother’s illness, the father of six-year-old Nagma was sold to the family of a 19-year-old to become his wife.
Clarion Project After finding out about the case, U.S. rights groups contacted American Lawyer Kimberly Motley who has been working in Afghanistan for the past five years. Motley was able to raise funds to redeem Nagma and, with the blessings of Nagma’s parents, now intends to put Nagma and her brother into Afghanistan’s National Institute of Music, a school that takes orphans and underprivileged children.
This is Iran. I wonder how different this is from the new Common Core authoritarian curriculum being forced down the throats of American schoolchildren under the Obama Regime?

A criminal court in the eastern Egyptian town of Bur Saeed gave the two teenagers a reduced sentence of only 15 and 20 years in prison on the grounds that they are minors.
Emirates 24/7 Newspapers in the most populous Arab country said the rime took place in November, when the two abducted the girl, Zainah, to their apartment and took turns in raping her. When she started to scream, they hurled her out of the 11th floor window. The papers identified the two as Mahmoud Mohammed and Ala Hasaballah and a picture of the victim was published in the Saudi daily Sada.
In her recent book, ‘The Whole Woman,’ Ms Greer argued that attempts to outlaw the practice amounted to “an attack on cultural identity,” adding: “One man’s beautification is another man’s mutilation.”
BBC MPs have launched an attack on the feminist writer Germaine Greer for what they say is her defense of female circumcision aka female genital mutilation.
The Commons International Development Select Committee said her comments on female genital mutilation – a practice which occurs in parts of Africa, Asia and the Middle East, (as well as among Muslims in the West) – were both “simplistic and offensive”.
A resolution against female genital mutilation was passed by the World Health Organisation in 1994, and charities including Womankind Worldwide say that the practice contravenes UNICEF’s convention on the rights of the child.
She said that women should have the right to undergo genital mutilation as a form of “self-decoration” and posed the question: “If an Ohio punk has the right to have her genitalia operated on, why has not the Somali woman the same right?”
However, in a report published on Thursday – coincidentally the International Day Against Violence Towards Women – the select committee accused Ms Greer of a “misplaced sense of the sanctity of culture”.
The MPs cited figures from the World Health Organisation which estimated that between 85 and 115 million women worldwide had undergone some form of genital mutilation which doubles their risk of dying in childbirth and can increase by three to four times the chances their children will be stillborn.
The MPs’ report also says that Ms Greer takes “no account of the purposes of female genital mutilation, nor the lack of choice for those young girls on whom it is inflicted.
“Equating the forcible clitoridectomy of an eight-year-old girl with the voluntary body-piercing of an American teenager is absurd. “Culture can no longer be used as an excuse for inaction on securing women’s rights,” the MPs concluded.
Because the operation is often carried out in non-sterile conditions, sometimes using kitchen knives or pieces of glass, there is a risk that the child or woman could die of infections such a septicaemia.
Organizations like Womankind Worldwide works towards abolishing the practice with measures such as providing grants for traditional circumcisors – who make their living from performing the operations – to set up other businesses.
An estimated 130 million young girls have undergone sexual mutilation, mostly in Muslim countries, but now, apparently in Great Britain, Europe, and the USA, too.
A father who allowed his 13-year-old daughter to be married in an illegal ceremony has been refused bail, despite arguing the child bride was a “strong-willed woman who was in love.” Police also arrested and charged an imam accused of conducting the marriage.
The Imam who married them
SMH (h/t to all who sent this) The 61-year-old was refused bail by a Newcastle court on Wednesday after police charged him with accessory before the fact of sexual intercourse with a child aged 10 to 14 years and procuring a child under the age of 14 for unlawful sexual activity.
The father, an Australian remains in custody along with the 26-year-old Lebanese paedophile. Police said it will be alleged the father allowed his daughter to move to south-western Sydney with the Lebanese man she had “married”, who was visiting Australia on a student visa.
Lebanese Muslim ‘groom’ being arrested
In refusing him bail, Magistrate Caleb Franklin said the facts indicated the defendant believed he had done nothing wrong, Raymond Terrace Local Court heard. “Even if the allegations against him are proved he believes there is nothing wrong with the behaviour alleged,” Magistrate Franklin said.
“The defendant has a disregard for the laws of this state,” he said. (As do most Muslims who don’t think man-made laws apply to them)
A Legal Aid solicitor told the court her client denied many of the allegations made by the police. “He certainly denies facilitating or setting up any arrangement. She is a very, very mature and strong-willed young woman. He says they are in love and it is a very strong love.”
She also said her client was worried about his children, one of which was in tears the last time he saw them. The solicitor also told the court her client was very well respected in the community and very well known. (Known? Maybe. Respected? Only if he lived in a Muslim neighborhood)
The father’s arrest comes the day after a Muslim cleric was charged with conducting the illegal marriage of the girl and the man, who was 14 years her senior. The 26-year-old Lebanese Muslim man who married the girl remains in custody, charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child. He was arrested last week.
Canberra Times Police have arrested and charged an imam accused of conducting the marriage of a 12-year-old girl in the Hunter Valley this year. Detectives from the Child Abuse Squad arrested the 35-year-old Pakistan-born man outside Parramatta police station about 4.30pm on Monday afternoon, police said.
They charged him with solemnization of an illegal marriage by an unauthorized person. Police will allege he agreed to conduct a ceremony after he was approached by a 26-year-old man, who was eager to marry the girl.
An investigation by the Sydney Daily Telegraph published Wednesday said there was an “epidemic” of child brides with hundreds of under-age teenagers living in unregistered “marriages” in New South Wales state alone.
When I first heard that the father had approved of the illegal union between his young daughter and a 26-year-old man, I figured he had to be a Muslim. Now, finally, it comes out that he is. He even allowed the couple to get married in his home. So why wasn’t the father also arrested?

Daily Telegraph (h/t Marina) Having converted to Islam about 18 years ago, Ahmad Chamma, the father of the 12-year-old girl at the centre of a child sex case following her “marriage” to a 26-year-old foreigner confessed his unhappiness at their union, but said “it was not my decision.” But the fifth-generation Australian man, who allowed the pair to be married by an imam in his home on January 12, now says he fears she is going to “die” from a broken heart. (Oh, Boo Hoo)
He also addressed public outrage on the case following the 26-year-old Lebanese man’s arrest on Thursday, saying he might “cop a little bit of abuse off people but I will have to cope with that”. “She was crying like I have never heard before, they were telling her she couldn’t see (the man) today or tomorrow or possibly forever,’’ he said. “She’s being restrained against her will in foster care.
“There’s nothing I can do at the moment, I’ve got the feeling she might die because she’s so hurt by all of this.” The pair met at a Hunter Valley mosque late last year after the 26-year-old came to Australia to study at a nearby university.
He approached the mosque about marrying the girl but the Newcastle Muslim Association president Bikash “Shahriar” Paul said he was turned away because it was illegal. He then approached the girl’s father who initially refused but agreed to let him come to his house to meet his daughter.
Ahmad Chamma, the paedophile
The girl’s father said his initial concerns were more religiously guided than the man’s or his daughter’s ages. However, he said the only way they could be in any type of relationship, let alone in the same room unchaperoned, under “my interpretation of the Koran” was if they were married.
“My daughter was not going to change her mind, I couldn’t talk her out of it,’’ he said. “Him being 26 was not a big concern to me because I was not marrying him. I was not happy with it but it was not my decision.” He said the couple moved to western Sydney after the marriage. He said they tried to enrol his daughter at a local high school but were told to go to Centrelink to ascertain her guardianship.
The father said a social worker at Centrelink raised the alarm before police and the Department of Community Services intervened. The man was refused bail at Burwood Local Court on Friday after being charged by Child Abuse Squad detectives with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child.
Her father, who was interviewed and released without charge, said he knew people would ask how could he let his 12-year-old daughter live with an older man, let alone marry him, but he didn’t “want to stop her happiness”.
The Minister for Family and Community Services, Pru Goward said “In this country, little girls have rights and in particular they have the right to a childhood free from this kind of abuse,” she said.
Al-Qaeda and its offshoots train and indoctrinate newborns, toddlers, preschoolers, primary school students and teens.
MEMRI Increasingly over the past decade, Al-Qaeda and its affiliates and sympathizers have been aiming their outreach and recruitment efforts at pre-teens, and even much younger children. As part of these efforts, Al-Qaeda sheikhs are reaching out directly to Muslim youth.
For example, last year, in an audio lecture released by the Al-Qaeda media arm Al-Sahab, emerging Al-Qaeda leader Sheikh Maulana Asim Umar urged even the youngest Muslims to “not stay with [their] parents” and to leave the “luxury” of home and “city life” to wage jihad, like the Prophet Muhammad before them. In fiery terms, he exhorted them: “A youth whose heart is filled with desire, spirit, and love for jihad does not rest in his home; do not stay with your parents and do not enjoy the luxury of home.
To fulfill the promise, one group preferred to sacrifice love for parents, leave the city life, and go to the mountains of Afghanistan, the snow-covered hills of Kashmir, and to continue fighting the enemy for the supremacy of Islam and to preserve the honor of their mothers and sisters…”
There is direct evidence, particularly as the crisis in Syria continues, that these efforts are paying off. Most recently, on January 28, 2014, it was reported that two teens from Toulouse, France, ages 15 and 16, had been apprehended in Turkey on their way to join the jihad in Syria. The previous week, it was reported that dozens of European teens have gone to fight with Al-Qaeda in Syria. The mother of two sons, also from Toulouse, announced that they had both been killed there, one of them in a suicide bombing
Other ways in which Al-Qaeda and its affiliates are pursuing outreach to children are by conducting training camps in which youngsters train with weapons, and by establishing da’wa centers all over the Arab and Muslim world. Syria offers a unique opportunity for extending their reach and deepening their influence, they are establishing there schools for pre-teen children, for indoctrinating even the very young in the ideology of extreme Salafi-jihadi Islam. ISIS is particularly active in this endeavor.
“New generation of tawhid [monotheism] and jihad!”; “One of the lion cubs of the #Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Teach your children dignity and instill in them pride;” and “The future of this nation… kids want Islam and seek nothing other than this and this is apparent in their games, praise Allah.”
Terror group Jabhar Al-Nusra (JN) released a video showing the group’s outreach efforts in the Al-Ghouta Al-Sharqiyya area outside Damascus. The video, titled “JN Cubs – Towards The Path Of Enablement,” follows a large group of children attending a JN-run shari’a school, at which they study Arabic, learn and memorize Koran and hadiths.
Muslim parents who embrace radical Islam and the Al-Qaeda ideology are busily sharing and tweeting photos and videos of their children, even infants and toddlers, dressed in jihadi garb with parents and other adults. Even newborn infants are shown posed with firearms and explosives that could kill them – grenades, pistols, ammunition, and automatic weapons such as AK-47s – and waving black jihadi flags.
In December 2009, the Ansar Al-Mujahideen website posted online its compilation of videos of jihadi children, titled “The Next Generation of Mujahideen.” The video identifies the jihad groups worldwide to which the children belong, and shows them training, giving speeches, chanting, and praying.
In 2011 and 2012, there were reports that Al-Qaeda children’s camps had been established in Tanzania and Somalia. An April 15, 2010 video released by the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabab Al-Mujahideen in Somalia showed a festival held for the children of the organization’s martyrs. The video was dedicated to “the believers in Allah’s unity in Nigeria.”
Another boy playing with a toy pistol asks, “Do you know who I am going to kill with this pistol?” The cameraman replies: “Who do you want to kill with this pistol?” The child answers: “The infidels.” The cameraman replies: “Excellent – show me how.”
The late senior Al-Shabab leader, American jihadi Omar Hammami aka Abu Mansour Al-Amriki, told the children: “[T]he children [of the martyrs], the young children, need to work hard to try to be like their heroic fathers who were martyred on this path. Allah willing, we, for our part, will try to fulfill our duties…”
A four-year-old boy firing an AK-47 under the supervision of an approving adult shouting “Allah Akbar.” When the boy, who states that he is with ISIS and is from Uzbekistan, is asked what he would like to say to the infidels, he says: “Oh infidels, we will slaughter you.”
Another widely circulated video shows a group of toddlers and young children chanting praise of JN and denouncing its detractors, the ‘Alawites and supporters of democracy.
Al-Qaeda operative: “Islam unites everyone under one word, with no distinction between skin color, nationality, or anything. The entire Earth belongs to Allah. Islam elevates the Muslims and humiliates the infidels. The ‘Crusaders’ – who are the Christians – are they Muslims or infidels?” Schoolchildren: “They are infidels.”
Masked children sing: “…and our weapon is the PK machine gun. If they call me a terrorist, I will consider it an honor… “Our terror is blessed, a divine call… We have brought slaughter upon you. There will be no agreement.”
