Islam, Sexual Abuse & Porn

Yes, even Islamic countries engage in child sex, incest  and pornography:

Sex scandal rocks Iraqi’s Shi’ites

A top-level Shi’ite cleric has been defrocked over sexually explicit videos posted on the Internet that have outraged devout communities across Iraq and tarnished the image of the sect’s highest religious body.  [Go Internet!]

Munaf Hamdan Naji al-Mosawi, a close aide to Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani for 11 years, has gone into hiding after intimate footage apparently recorded on his mobile phone ended up in the hands of neighbors, who marched to his home in Amara to demand the return of their religious donations, according to Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) sources – religious figures in Amara and Najaf, where Sistani’s office is based.

IWPR sources say the footage, which became public when Mosawi lost his phone’s memory card, allegedly shows the cleric naked and involved in sexual acts with his wife and, in a separate video, another woman with whom he had a muta’a, or temporary marriage. Locals who have seen the complete contents of the card claim there are images of as many as 18 other women.  (see my post: Pornography; A Major Commodity

It is the hypocrisy that infuriates me and makes me sick.  As with Catholic priests, these men have the  audacity  to lecture the populace on purity, honesty and integrity.  I was once told by an Iranian woman that there was no child sex or incest in her country, which I found difficult to believe at the time.  Then, later,  I read many personal accounts written by women living in Iran and other islamic states.   They were horrific tales, such as the multiple rape of young girls within their own countries, not to mention the disgusting behaviour of these men when they visit Western countries.  Their hypocrisy knows no bounds it seems. These same men allow the stoning of women and in cases where wives who are raped and sodomised by their husbands, complain, their children are taken from them and the women banished from their homes.  One such wife who was brutally sodomised (which is punishable by death in these countries!) had her bowel perforated, and after surgery to remove her bowel and a colostomy performed, she returned to the family home where her husband ranted at her “you stink, don’t come near me!”  She went back to the abuse, did not report it to the authorities, because she knew that under Islamic law, she would be the one to be punished, and if she wasn’t  killed, she would never be permitted to see her children again.

Priests are allowed to continue abusing children because their crimes are never reported to police; they are just shifted around from parish to parish, to carry on preaching purity to parishioners.  The Pope apologises and the paedophile  priests confess to another priest; a paltry penance is served (like saying three rosaries!) and all is forgiven; they can then begin abusing all over again, with a clean slate, knowing their all-powerful God will forgive them yet again; who cares about the  damage done to the children left by the wayside?  I believe that the depth of sexual abuse and pornography within these male powerhouses is far greater than anyone realises .  We have just seen the tip of the iceberg but women and children are at long last finding a voice with the help of technology, such as the internet. The Catholic Church is run by patriarchal men as are Islamic states; men have been protected  for centuries, for far too long.
