I DO! Now let's go out and play on the swings!

I have stated repeatedly that Muslims in the Middel-East, especially the Fundamentalists, are still living in the twlefth century. Back in those old times the life expectancy was nowhere near what it is now and people got married at a much earlier age to start a family. (Usually just after puberty!)

Well, thing don't change much in Saudi Arabia and other countries in that part of the world. No light has been shone on the dark ages over there for a long time.

An 11-year-old boy has married his 10-year-old cousin in the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Mohammed al-Rashidi and his unidentified cousin will seal the marriage they contracted under the Sharia laws of Islam and move in together after a ceremony to take place in the summer, Al-Shams newspaper reports today.

“I am ready for this marriage. It will help me study better,” Mohammed, who goes to primary school in the northern province of Hail, was quoted by Al-Shams as saying.

“I invite all my classmates to do like me,” the boy said, adding that he wanted to “crown a love story through marriage.”

The schoolboy’s father, Muraizak al-Rashidi, told the newspaper he was busy sending out invitations for a summer celebration to seal the marriage.

(Dahim al-Jaber, the headmaster at Mohammed’s school, said marriage at such a young age was “inappropriate” but wished the couple a happy life together.)

This is once again another good reason to do away with Sharia Law.

(To think there are actually some bleeding heart Liberals who wanted to impliment Sharia Law here in Ontario. Thankfully, saner heads prevailed!)
