From the UK Daily Mail…
Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death.
The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.
Sure is great that democracy has taken hold in Egypt, isn’t it?
This isn’t a partisan thing, as the Bush administration managed to step on its crank promoting elections in the Palestinian territories which produced Hamas as a “government.” Of course, the current president and his people had the example of Bush’s mistakes to draw from and they still managed to sell out an admittedly deficient ally in favor of…what, exactly?
The Muslim Brotherhood?
The fact that more than four out of five Egyptian women have had their clitorises cut off so their sexual enjoyment is made impossible ought to have been a clue that this wasn’t a society capable of producing good results in democratic elections, and the latest legislative descent into mass psychosis is anything but a surprise.
Of course, given that statistic quoted above, Egyptian men probably wouldn’t notice the difference between live wives and dead ones in the bedroom.
It’s unfortunate that Egypt is as important a country as it is. Because Egypt is lost. Egypt is the next Afghanistan.
Get every Coptic Christian out of there now, and give them sanctuary in the United States. And then learn from them what it means to have Muslim communities nearby. Act accordingly.
