We need to help them. This is so sad. "Un-islamic" ? -- This is just a f****** excuse. You're using religion to illusionised that it's okay? Stop the excuses.

Its sad that centuries old barbaric practices still go on today. Human nature can be very sick. What kind of people sit in government in Yemen? Hopefully, there are leaders with common sense and have an understanding of human rights. Should take a long hard look at laws concerning child brides and make this a serious crime. Marriage is supposed to be beautiful and sacred. Its time people realised life is a blessing. Not to be taken lightly. And whatever religion or culture you aspire to remember: God is watching you.

I don't believe that it has anything to do with religion, culture, or the other excuses used. It is the sickness of anyone who would even consider doing something so horrendous. There are very sick, and perverted people all around the world. We need to make each individual accountable for their own actions. I personally can't say what I would have done to someone had they done anything even close to what these poor children endured had this been my Daughter. Just think of the sickest, most disgusting thing that can be done to someone,then you may have figured out the beginning of the torment which I would have inflicted on someone. Yes,I would have enjoyed every second of it. May her soul be in peace. My blessings to anyone who has endured any type of sexual assault. You are in my heart

In this particular case It has everything to do with islam, they are just following the example of the prophet Muhammed who did the same with aisha. He was slso a pedophile.

All religion in the world should be banned! So sick fucks and people can stop blaming religion for their behavior! "These men" and people part of this religion should all go to jail if u believe in something so horrible! And where are these little girls parents??? These people need to be educated!

Where is justice, is Yemen asleep, this is not ordinary human or animal behaviour. The world must do something
To bring these people to justice, this is pedophilia
murder and torture to children .
Where is our humanity ....

This is disgusting. Don't call them animals. That's an insult to animals. Those who commit or condone atrocities like this have no place in a society of human beings. They are scum, the worst that humankind can create. They are an abomination that deserves the cruelest, most painful and unmerciful punishment we can deliver. To think that a religion even remotely permits this is beyond belief. We should all be ashamed of our species.

what kind of Anima would do this?? I Don't care what part of the Planet or what religion you are!!! The men who do this are PIGS and Should Die like PIGS Burning in Hell for Eternity!!!!

I used to be tolerant of all religions, but after the repeal on a age limit because they consider it un-Islamic, I am now a FIRM believer that all men in Yemen need to have their d****s removed!!

Absolutely disgusting! Poor girl - may she rest in peace! And may her 'husband' get all that's coming to him! What an awful so called culture!

This has nothing to do with religion. Its all culture based and horrifically sad.If people in North America with educated backgrounds can raise more awareness in the world today things like this would be banned. LETS RAISE AWARENESS ANYWAY WE POSSIBLY CAN PEOPLE. Everyone needs to wake up, these are children of the future.

"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."

It's being made out by some WITHIN that it is indeed "part of Islam"...

Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 04/02/2014 - 23:11

Please understand that this horrific incidents are not part of the Islamic faith, but rather a horrible CULTURE existing in parts of Yemen, and several middle eastern countries. Poor treatment of women exists in some other places such as Pakistan as well. If it is a Islam thing, a billion Muslims around the world from China to Turkey to US would do the same. Islam sees marriage as a sacred act. Muslims around the world detest this act, and agree she is too young to be married off. I dont think she even reached puberty stage. That man should be castrated alive.

Great to be in an Islamist country where you can kill babies for sexual pleasure

This is disgusting. These people act like animals! I feel so sorry for this girl, and the other 140 million who deal with this hedonistic, poor excuses for men.
What can we do to help?
We must call attention to this problem!
The United States must be able to do something.

John Smarr (not verified) Mon, 09/16/2013 - 05:42

This is densely barbaric and inhumane. The thought of a law put in place to protect these young girls from trauma was repealed because more conservative (sicko) lawmakers call it "un-Islamic" gives me no hope for a better future...
How can it ever be plausible to reverse the opinions of these people if they their claim 'In the name of religion' seems to justify these cruel acts?

Where is the hope - if it's not in their faith? (not verified) Mon, 09/16/2013 - 05:41

bunch of pedophiles

As a doctor R these arab retarded a******s still exsist in the 21th century. As a Sudanese doctor from Islamic backgrounds ,equally shoked with my WESTWRN FRIENDS and doctors, tha ? This is a big stigma to Islamic religion and Arabic culture.They need to raise up to the standards of contemporary guidelines, or they will be left in stone ages. Disgusting .

dr osman (not verified) Sun, 09/15/2013 - 11:31

What is to be expected, a backward people and a barbaric r*******? never a good combination, then again no religion is good for women. Come to think of it no religion is good for humanity either.

This man is a no man, stupid illiterate and a child murder, What in the world a 40 year old would want from a small child? if this is not perverseness? I am so happy not be born in such a backward culture. The parents and the authorities are sick in the head. They deserve hell! I mean the hoT!!! one.

As a woman,I would kill this "MOTHER FUC*** ". This is a VIOLATION of all HUMAN RIGHTS and all CHILDREN`S RIGHTS ! Just imagine your little son or your little daughter to be sexualy abused and beaten to death. LUCKILY in Europe I can see my daughter play with her toys or play in the garden and being SAFE ! This ISLAM RELIGION - this MEN RELIGION should be BOMBED AND STOPPED ! What do we pay our soldiers every month for if not to BRING this kind of INSANE PEOPLE(MEN) DOWN !!!!!! I am so angry now and so sad at the same, because I know how it is to be sexualy abused as a child. It is NOT TRUE that the world does not have anough MONEY. There is MORE MONEY that we all need. There SHOULD BE anough MONEY for everyone to live a peacefull life and that this kind of things would not happen.

how can Islam, the religion of mercy, thinking, logic and brain, be taken like that?!!
God, dear people, would never allow such a thing! Just THINK!
Children must be not only not forced to get married, but also not to allowed to get married at such age!!

Why isn't the U.N. show concern for these children?

Anonymous (not verified) Sat, 09/14/2013 - 14:55

The UN doesn't care because they can't hang it on the Israelis!

Somehow this story seems like agitprop to me. I would not be repeating it if I can't actually verify it. This is the type of story (especially if untrue) that has been used time and time again as the excuse for destroying persons and defenseless countries.

Be skeptical.
