Islamic child bride’s father labels Australian laws ‘stupid’

A child bride in Yemen.

THE father of a 12-year-old child “bride” told her that Australian law was stupid and girls her age should be allowed to get married and have sex, a court has heard.

The girl’s 63-year-old father, who cannot be named, has been charged over “marrying” the 12-year-old to a 26-year-old Lebanese man in an Islamic ceremony in January last year.

The girl’s recorded interview with a child protection worker was played on day three of her father’s trial at Sydney’s Downing Centre District Court yesterday.

She said that days after police found out about their ­Islamic marriage, her father had become concerned about the prospect of the girl’s “husband” going to jail.

“(My father) knows no marriage under the age of 16,” she said.

“Because he says to me the law here is stupid, girls your age should be allowed to get married and have intercourse,” she said…

    The girl’s father cannot be named… OMG.

    • God forbid his neighbours, co-workers and other citizens give him a piece of their minds… or fists.

      None of them can be named, what a dreadful thing multiculturalism when it came to our shores. It has ruined Canada, the UK and the US. To fix it would be hard measures.

      • Bataviawillem

        The west is to soft to take harsh measures.
        The west is even to soft to let kids play with a ball during recess, because somebody could get hurt.

    It’s time you all learned to respect our culture!

  • poppabox

    It might be “stupid” to him possibly because he has the IQ of 12.

  • Just a thought

    Speaking of “stupid,” the moron leaves where he was because it was an Islamic hell hole, and comes to Civilization, and doesn’t feel at home.

  • Rosenmops

    Diversity is great. So vibrant!

    • Just a thought

      “Vibrant;” that’s a synonym for “shaky,” isn’t it?

  • Remember- all cultures are equal, it is racist to assume otherwise and this has nothing to do with Islam.

  • Petrilia

    Poor little girl. Slave for life. Look at the fear in her eyes. Australia is one of the worst, how can that be. that certainly is not the Australia I know and love.

  • Allan

    Jesus H Fucking Christ these Muslims are stupid. Why the fuck did you go to Australia? Why not stay in your shithole country and molest all the girls you want? Deport these bastards Australia!!

    Do you always use other peoples work without giving them credit?

    How typical of you Arnie.

    The photograph is the work of the Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Stephanie Sinclair whose work with the child brides of Afghanistan has been seen around the world.

    Have a little class, or perhaps you would like to delete this comment along with the other comments that point out the truth.

    Have a nice day,


    • Nobody is hiding the provenance of the picture, Rosslyn.

      • Rosslyn

        @Black Mamba

        Nowhere, even in the properties of the photograph is there one attribution of of its creation nor its copyright to the photographer, Ms. Stephanie Sinclair.

        Have a little class, and by the way, stop throwing around 50.00$ words to obfuscate the crass and classless, simply put a small notation on the corner of the photograph or a small note on your article with a link to the photographers work.

        Grow up!! you folks should know better at this stage of the game.


        • It’s perfectly normal to publish pictures along with articles. It’s not as if BCF is claiming that he went over to Yemen and took the photo himself. Go and have a look at some different websites: it’s standard. There’s no deception involved.

          I’m sorry if you have trouble with longish words but you can always Google them or even use a dead tree dictionary.

          • Rosslyn

            @Black Mamba,

            Amazing, truly amazing.

            You got caught with your pants down and your fingers in the cookie jar and all you can do is the Philadelphia Two-Step, some juvenile shuck and jive to avoid a simple apology and an acknowledgement that you’ve made a mistake, How crass, How classless.

            Then when cornered you revert to sarcasm. How predictable.

            And you do this from the comfort of your armchair. How pathetic.

            Ms. Sinclair risks her life to bring us these glimpses into the world of child brides and their miserable existence.

            Your thanks for that is cavalier sarcasm and opportunistic, parasitic indifference,

            I rest my case.


          • Look, I’m sorry, who are you and what is your deal?

            Are you, as I am coming to suspect, a loony?

          • An absolute nutter. Out of Calgary.

          • Actually whoever this is may have something to do with

            I’ll make some discreet enquiries.

            Do her mamba.
            Do her!
            Do her for me.

          • Do you mean, be mean to her? Or is this, like… never mind.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Do I have to spell everything out?
            You know how I like it.
            Hard I.P. ban!

          • OH STFU you ditz.

            Hey Toots, please for the love of God resume your medications. It’s for your own good.

          • Geez my work has been stolen all over the place and I don’t complain;)

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Too bad you aren’t more concerned about Muslims fucking 12-year-olds rather than a fucking picture.
            Unless you have a better pic to offer, you should probably fuck-off.
            Busy bodies.
            She has no connection with the picture or the photographer, yet in typical SJW fashion it is her lot to take offense.

            That’s a serious case of the vapors. From my love seat, not armchair.

          “Nowhere, even in the properties of the photograph is there one attribution of of its creation…”

          Just because Rosy isn’t smart enough to figure it out, then nobody else is, …right?

          Took me under 3 minutes.

          Grow up yourself!

          • Took me about three seconds. I just right-clicked and went to “Search Google for this image”. It’s a non-issue.

          • Just a thought

            OK, I was doing it the long way. copy link location, edit out all but relevant search terms, search on them. Didn’t realize you could do it directly. Thanks! 🙂

    • What a crank.

      • Frau Katze

        The thing is, I usually do give credits. But my arms were just aching by this post, and I couldn’t stand any extra work.

        • Not to worry, whoever this was is clearly not all there.

        • Just a thought

          the source with info is in the link. True, it’s better to attribute, but it’s not like you were pretending it was yours, since it’s easily traceable back to it’s source. (See my comment above for that). Just a complaint looking for a place to be made.

    • Frau Katze

      Sorry, I was too tired to track down the credits. I’m having trouble with arthritis and it was getting bad. So I just skipped that step. BTW, most bloggers never give credits at all. I try to, but my arms were too sore for any extra work.

      • She seems a seriously distressed individual Frau. I doubt the pic has anything to do with it, see the reference to other “comments” being banned. Likely some neo-nazi we gave the boot to.

    • Just a thought

      Anyone who wants can find a source for it. Here’s one I found in less than 3 minutes.—world-press-photo-of-the-year-2011-3a-1st-prize-c/3833898

      That’s saying something given how much muslims love their animals.

      But the ARE too stupid to realize that breaking the system will terminate the benefits. ooops, didn’t put the two together!
