****UPDATE April10,2010 - Dead Yemeni Child Bride Tied-up and raped
"A 13-year-old Yemeni child bride who bled to death shortly after marriage was tied down and forced to have sex by her husband, according to interviews with the child's mother, police and medical reports.
The girl's mother, Nijma Ahmed, 50, told the Associated Press that before her daughter lost consciousness, she said that her husband had tied her up and forced himself on her. "She looked like she was butchered," she said about her daughter's injuries.
A forensic report obtained by the AP showed that Assi's injuries were much more extensive, including extensive tearing around the vagina and rectum
There are all types of animals on this Earth - some walk on two legs and some walk on four but a man who would take a little girl and repeatedly force himself sexually on her and into her until her reproductive organs ruptured causing her to haemorrhage to death - is not a man - he is a monster who slithers on his belly making even poisonous snakes look good.
He is the ultimate sorry excuse for a man as real men want to defend and care for children - not rape them. A man who has sex with a child is a paedophile no matter what country he lives in no matter what religion he spouts and no matter what religious book he hides under.
Muslim apologists need not spout their multicultural claptrap at me - or at the now dead girl - who's young life was snuffed out by a barbarian that would not control his perverted morals or genitals.
Muslim women and their Western anthopologist cheerleaders are also to blame. Yemen saw fit to recently propose a law banning child marriage. So what happened? Women marched in the streets - using the symbolic act of holding their Qur'an's over their heads - protesting the new law. Sorry ladies but you can't hide under the Qur'an on this. Undoubtedly these are the same women who tie down their granddaughters, daughters & nieces and have a 'cutter' slice off the little girl's external genitalia - female genital mutilation. (Yemen parliament refused to ban female circumcision) thus leaving it up to little girl's to stand up for their rights.
Too bad 13 year old, Ilham Mahdi al-Assi, didn't have a Qur'an to hide under or to use to pummel the child rapist she was forced to marry -- instead of being forced to endure horrific physical and emotional torture.
This death is totally outrageous and completely preventable yet even Western countries in efforts to pander to muslims - on every level - spout alot of crap about forced marriage being bad yet are there laws to specifically criminalize it. ? NO!
Isn't it true that tales of forced marriage are not short of becoming commonplace in England/Great Britain/Europe? How long will it be before we pick up a newspaper or turn on the telly and read or see a story about genital mutilation or forced marriage which often leads to child rape and not even raise an eyebrow?
How long before we are standing - with that rapidly growing crowd - hiding under the Qur'an?

These women are protesting against the law banning child marriage
Report 13-year-old bride dies five days after her wedding when suffering rupture in her sex organs, haemorrhaging.
SANAA - A 13-year-old Yemeni girl who had been forced into marriage died five days after her wedding when she suffered a rupture in her sex organs and haemorrhaging, a local right's organisation said Thursday.
Ilham Mahdi al-Assi died on Friday in al-Thawra hospital, in Hajja province north of the capital, the Shaqaeq Arab Forum for Human Rights said in a statement quoting a medical report.
She was wedded on Monday in a traditional arrangement known as "swap marriage" in which the brother of the bride also married the sister of the groom, it said.
"The child Ilham has died as a martyr due to the abuse of children's lives in Yemen," the non-governmental organisation said.
Her death is a "flagrant example" of the results of opposing the ban on child marriage in Yemen, which is leading to "killing child females," it said.
The marriage of young girls is widespread in Yemen which has a strong tribal structure.
The death of a 12-year-old girl in childbirth in September illustrated the case of the country's "brides of death," many of whom are married off even before puberty.
Controversy has heightened in Yemen recently over a law banning child marriage in the impoverished country through setting a minimum age of 17 for women and 18 for men.
Thousands of conservative women demonstrated outside parliament last month answering a call by Islamist parties opposing the law.
A lesser number of women rallied at the same venue a few days later in support of the law, whose implementation is blocked pending a request by a group of MPs for a review, although it had passed last year in the chamber.
Will this soon be happening in our country?
