Egypt's Islamic dominated Parliament mulling laws legalizing child marriage and sex with corpses
Jihad Watch ^ | --

Posted on 04/26/2012 5:21:33 AM PDT by SJackson

Here is yet more delightful evidence that Sharia is benign and completely compatible with U.S. Constitutional values, as we are constantly told. "Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report," by Abeer Tayel for Al Arabiya, April 25 (thanks to Stephen):

Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an Egyptian newspaper. The appeal came in a message sent by Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, to the Egyptian People’s Assembly Speaker, Dr. Saad al-Katatni, addressing the woes of Egyptian women, especially after the popular uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.

She was referring to two laws: one that would legalize the marriage of girls starting from the age of 14 and the other that permits a husband to have sex with his dead wife within the six hours following her death.

According to Egyptian columnist Amro Abdul Samea in al-Ahram, Talawi’s message included an appeal to parliament to avoid the controversial legislations that rid women of their rights of getting education and employment, under alleged religious interpretations....

The controversy about a husband having sex with his dead wife came about after a Moroccan cleric spoke about the issue in May 2011.

Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband.

Two years ago, Zamzami incited further controversy in Morocco when he said it was permissible for pregnant women to drink alcohol.

But it seems his view on partners having sex with their deceased partners has found its way to Egypt one year on.

Egyptian prominent journalist and TV anchor Jaber al-Qarmouty on Tuesday referred to Abdul Samea’s article in his daily show on Egyptian ON TV and criticized the whole notion of “permitting a husband to have sex with his wife after her death under a so-called ‘Farewell Intercourse’ draft law.”

“This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues? Did Abdul Samea see by his own eyes the text of the message sent by Talawi to Katatni? This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner?”

Many members of the newly-elected, and majority Islamist parliament, have been accused of launching attacks against women’s rights in the country.

They wish to cancel many, if not most, of the laws that promote women’s rights, most notably a law that allows a wife to obtain a divorce without obstructions from her partner. The implementation of the Islamic right to divorce law, also known as the Khula, ended years of hardship and legal battles women would have to endure when trying to obtain a divorce.

Egyptian law grants men the right to terminate a marriage, but grants women the opportunity to end an unhappy or abusive marriages without the obstruction of their partner. Prior to the implementation of the Khula over a decade ago, it could take 10 to 15 years for a woman to be granted a divorce by the courts.

Islamist members of Egyptian parliament, however, accuse these laws of “aiming to destroy families” and have said it was passed to please the former first lady of the fallen regime, Suzanne Mubarak, who devoted much of her attention to the issues of granting the women all her rights....

Do we need any more evidence of what a sick culture and religion questions such as these indicate to anyone paying attention?

Unless she died during an "unclean" day of the month, then he's got a dilemma.

Male corpses sometimes get an erection. This is known as ‘angel lust’.

Islam encourages necrophilia because Mohammed slept with Fatima after she died.

WTF!

That Mohammed was one sex-obsessed dude!

This must have been what Obama was referring to when he coined the expression "Arab Spring".

This is the reason why the left loves islam so very much. This is also the reason for so many conversions to islam. Any perversion is justified. Any sick fantasy is glorified and acceptable to allah...from murder of innocents to the rapes of little boys. Everything the civilized world sets a moral standard for, islam approves of.

Good luck with that. Under Sharia they must think Muslims can put an oyster into a slot machine.

Hence the expression "lucky stiff."

Opens up more cans of worms -

What if an interloper rapes the deceased and is caught in the act?

Does this make her now impure for the husband?

Is there a higher penalty because she is married?
Which head gets severed?

Can he buy off the living offended party with ‘blood money’ equivalent and save his hide?

What if he has more than one wife?

Who gets him first?

Does he have to be rewashed after each use?

“Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband.”

But if another man has sex with your dead wife, is it adultery? What do you do, stone her to death? And what if the man is dead, too?

Do Muslims stay away during the wife’s period? I thought that was only Jewish practice.

Maybe the funeral parlor has something like a drivethru car wash and a conjugo-booth. Just put a dinar in the slot, and he’s back in five minutes.

Poem I once read in a college bathroom stall:

I f@#$ed her standing.
I f@##ed her lying.
If she had wings,
I would have f#$$ed her flying.
Now she’s dead, but not forgotten.
I dug her up and f@#$ed her rotten.
