Default This Makes Me So Angry.

Why do these people continue to behave worse than savages?

Yeah - read this on sky news a few days ago - it makes me want to vomit. It's basically condoning child abuse in the name of religion.

Happens throughout the Arab world - Oman, Saudi, Sudan etc.
Also in non-arab islamic countries such as Malaysia. Also believe it still happens in India

Well said MataHari.

co durham boy, if you read the article it does state that it's against the law there for people to get married under 17. Poverty and ignorance is the cause of this mess, it doesn't mean the whole of Yemeni society condones this.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't this occur amongst certain sects in so called civilised America? And let's not forget about countless acts of paedophilia all across the less "savage" world. The people in Yemen are poor and ignorant, what's the excuse of their more sophisticated, educated counterparts?

oh...sorry for posting
thought the discussion also was that 'they' are savages, and I was just adding that in the so called civilized West, things aren't always that rosy either...
for argument sake, you could say that in those poor areas where older men marry young girls, at least they (hopefully) provide them with a roof over their head and some sort of security within their community, where as the fat bloke from Wigan just abuses the kids for his own pleasure...which sounds pretty savage to me...
