Sex in Ramallah and the lack of sex and the horrifying results. When asked what one man wanted in a wife, his answer will surprise most Western men: "He says that his future wife must fulfill two conditions: First, she must be able to recite the Quran from memory. And second, he must be sure that she has never spoken with another man." (World Politics Review)
There are 'loose' women who come from Northern Palestine. An individual that was interviewed had images on his cellphone that were making the rounds, naughty women with their head scarves still in place, performing sexual acts on 'sex offenders' most likely members of the Al-Aqsa Brigades. There are certain cafes and apartments that provide meeting places for 'lovers.'
The temporary marriage certificate, or "missiar", makes it possible for couples to be married on a temporary basis in order to have sex, and also provides for men to have what we in the West might call 'kept women'. One Dubai business man got one of these temporary certificates and visits his 'wife' once every three months or so.
Sheikh Fahmi Jaradat:
"All physical contact is prohibited outside of marriage." Marriage was created by Allah to preserve the family and the highest goal of every couple must be "reproduction," as the Sheikh puts it. The satisfaction of sexual desire, he says sternly, is not the goal of marriage. [snip]
"For men, missiar is a cheap way to be able to have sex legally without having to take on obligations towards one's partner and without violating the precepts of Islam, which forbids sex outside of marriage." [snip] It humiliates the woman, he says, turning her into the man's slave. And, in the last analysis, that is acceptable for divorced women or widows, the Sheikh says, but not, however, for virgins or women who have been well raised.
Christians, Jews and other religious groups would agree that sex within marriage is the perfect will of God and that procreation is an important part of marriage. But I think we all draw the line in saying satisfaction of sexual desire is not the goal of marriage. The God I know isn't a prude, he made us the way we are for a reason. To love each other and for couples to show that love, to meet each other's needs. One young man, when asked how he deals with sex, or the lack thereof, said:
"I am learning to be patient," he responds shyly. Playing sports helps: After a game of soccer or a swim, for instance, he says he feels better. [snip]
"Caressing, let along anything more" -- he laughs in embarrassment -- "is out of the question. Every respectable woman, after all, wants to be a virgin when she gets married."
There's reason for waiting until marriage and it's not necessarily faith to the religion -- it's FEAR. Women who engage in ANY form of touching prior to marriage are killed, "they are strangled or struck dead with a hammer," usually by the youngest brother in the family, according to the article.
The perpetrators of "honor killings" spend as little time in prison as chicken thieves.
This comes as "a group of Muslim apostates in Europe is fighting for an essential human right: Young Muslims begin dangerous fight for the right to abandon faith." (LGF) AND as "the governor of a central Russian province urged couples to skip work on Wednesday and make love instead to help boost Russia's low birth-rate."
