What happens in yemen has nothing to do with islam, since you are not allowed to physically harm your wife when having sex.

How is it that my 'Civilised' society wishes me to consider these beings as worthwhile? I have wondered for a very very long time if I am racist (now, by definition, if I wasn't Civilised I would not even stop to think about this) and I have come to the conclusion that, no, I am not racist, I do not hate individuals from other countries, nor do I wish to dominate over them, and I certainly don't think that my race is superior. But maybe it causes me to become, what I have coined, culturalist. That's right, I am against many aspects of the Middle Eastern culture and African cultures also, just to throw it in there. Now, a friend has pointed out that the Culture, in the case of the Middle East and Africa stems, in part from the religion in these regions. Now, I don't give a shit about religion and I don't believe this kind of behaviour is the fault of religion. This shit happens because the culture of these people has not evolved. Now, I don't know if the brain power of these people has not evolved also, and essentially they are lower down the scale than non human animals (non human animals do not have sexual intercourse with individuals that are not sexually mature) or whether they are just so F**n ignorant that they still blindly believe that female oppression and misogyny is ok, and also the misandry that results. Now, I do give a shit when an 8 year old child is raped and killed by a sick paedophile, with no self control and it is LEGAL AND OK and I feel that I have a right to be very candid here as I would normally be a bit more reserved and considerate of others .... but not now. Now, you tell me ... again .... how is it that I am to think that these beings are worthwhile? Coz to me, them, and their culture, is lower than dogshit!

I'm middle eastern and I'm here to tell you that not only are you racist, but you're WRONG. This isn't a part of middle eastern culture. It's part of a small, fanatical, extremist muslim sub-culture that has brought a bad name upon the rest of us. So, yes. You ARE racist. You've lumped an entire (very large) group of people together in your mind as inferior, subhuman beings. Not only are you doing that, you've failed to do ANY kind of research, which is made clear by your inaccurate assumption that these actions are consistent with middle eastern culture. So in summary: go to hell, and take your racist, uneducated, narrow minded views with you.

And before you get back up on your high horse, let me make one thing clear: I am in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM defending the actions of the small sub-set of middle easterners represented in this article. Those individuals are disgusting, and deserving of whatever retribution comes their way. But in NO WAY are they representative of the middle eastern culture as a whole.

Good point. Every country and every religion, has groups with in that are not good. There are always bad people out there, to lump everyone in that group in wrong. There are a lot of good Muslims, a lot of good Catholics, Baptists are all groups. We can't jump on one group and say they are all bad. That's just wrong!

They're not representative of the middle eastern culture as a whole? How about this quote, "In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic."

So if this just a "small sub-set of middle easterners" as you say, why is it that they make and control these laws and get to say what is "un-Islamic"?

Some of these comments are racist, but with good cause...so don't blame them. If they knew exactly who this person was, they would be attacking them personally. It's disgusting and horrific that children that live in Islamic countries are forced to be married to men that are as old as their own fathers. This is not okay.

And I' surprised that many MUSLIM people are NOT SPEAKING UP against this! You must be the change, because no one else can get to these monsters!

Because if they did, this wouldn't be happening... Seems like you are angry at people who say they hate the Islamic religion, not the Muslims in your own religion that are doing this and you are ignoring.

Both the mother, father and 'husband rapist' should be hanged!!!! They do not deserve to live - and the people who live by these 'traditions' should be wiped out as well!!! SHAME on this world that they sit back knowing that this is going on and DO NOTHING about it.

Dont hate the game, hate the player. If that husband rapist/pedophile or the innocents child's parent followed islam, tis would never happen. This is just sick culture. Not religion.

The husband is a pedophile, plain and simple.

Look how the article puts blame on conservatism. Check this sentenced used in the paragraph out. In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic. when we all know the liberals are pro Islam. But they like to twist the truth.

Idiot, just idiot.
A child died and all you can think about is your fucking political agenda.
Blame the liberals, surely the baseless connection makes you and your party look better.

Conservative is being properly used in this context, it is referring to those is Islamic beliefs who are holding onto old beliefs and traditions, Christianity used to ckndine and encoursge the same thing 2 or 3 centuries ago.

holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.
synonyms: traditionalist, traditional, conventional, orthodox, old-fashioned,
1.a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics

You must be an imbecile. Liberals are not pro child abuse, and they are not necessarily pro Islamic.

Anonymous (not verified) Sun, 06/01/2014 - 03:05

Actually, the way you're using political ideological terms is only in the American sense, which is innaccurate to Yemen politics. Conservative simply means the people of the conservative ideology are for the way things traditionally were in a country; that's the universal meaning. The universal meaning of a liberal is someone who advocates change and stepping away from the original basings of a government.

So, the conservatives in YEMEN ARE PRO-ISLAMIC, because that's HOW THEIR GOVERNMENT WAS FOUNDED.

Educate yourself before you comment.

Eastern Conservatism and Western Conservatism aren't the same things, no one is claiming that Republicans approve of child rape, and while Liberals support freedom of religion and don't like the idea of persecuting someone for not being christian, they would not support Islam's "right" to control and demean women and girls.

Conservative = more conservative beliefs about Islamic religion

Anonymous (not verified) Sat, 05/31/2014 - 23:18

It's conservative MUSLIMS not conservative people moron. You do realize that the word 'conservative' existed long before it was applied to political beliefs? By the way, who do you think killed Osama Bin Laden? The President must really love Islam to have done that.

Anonymous (not verified) Sat, 05/31/2014 - 16:41

Seriously? Okay, normally I would not respond to something so ridiculous, but I'm going to entertain it because it's obvious that you simply don't understand what the article is saying.

"Conservative" and "liberal" are actually words that aren't always synonymous with the American Republican and Democratic parties. In an article like this, when discussing a world issue that has absolutely nothing to do with American politics, "conservative" is used to mean "holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion." In this case, it's referring to the traditional Yemen government, and, as Yemen is an Islamic country, their traditional values ARE centered on Islam.

So, no, the article is NOT "putting blame on [American] conservatism."

As a liberal, I'm rather disappointed at how friendly to Islam others of this party are. However, that doesn't mean that those in Yemen who repealed the law are liberal. The political parties of one country are not like the political parties of another. If you went to Yemen as a Conservative you may quickly find yourself siding with the Liberals.

Anonymous (not verified) Fri, 05/30/2014 - 19:32

You're an idiot. There is a big difference between conservative islamics in Yemen and conservative people in the west. It's gobsmacking that you can't tell the difference.

A child of 8 yrs old died. And you are worried about, people blaming "conservatism"? You need to get your priorities straight.
But you are right it's probably the liberals who made this possible......idiot
