A gala event has occurred in Gaza. Hamas sponsored a mass wedding for four hundred and fifty couples. Most of the grooms were in their mid to late twenties; most of brides were under ten. Muslim dignitaries including Mahmud Zahar, a leader of Hamas, were on hand to congratulate the couples who took part in the carefully staged celebration. Some sites are claiming this is fake, but if the Hamas Government sponsored it, and all the men could only afford black pants and white shirts with no coats, then how did the "flower girls" afford their dresses?? Some body paid for them. Also, the Gaza Journal provided a write up on the event, and the NY Times reposted it, but Aljazeera filmed and edited it. Watch the original film they created, and see what they say. Canadian immigration officials say there's little they can do to stop the "child brides" of Muslim men from gaining entry into the country. Canadian Muslim men, often 60 years or older, often marry young girls -- - some prepubescent -- - in arranged marriages abroad. They then serve as sponsors for their "child brides" to gain Canadian residency and citizenship. Canadian authorities say they cannot prevent the practice and can only request an official delay upon the approval of sponsorship until the girls turn 16. The marriages of men to young girls -- - even children who are premenstrual -- - are sanctioned by Sharia Law. The Prophet Muhammad wed Aisha, when she was six, and deflowered her at nine. The three year hiatus before the deflowering was precipitated by the fact that Aisha developed a serious skin condition. The Canadian officials say some of the child brides, often as young as 10, are forced to marry in such Islamic countries as Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the Palestinian Authority. In classified documents, Canadian visa officer Steve Bulmer says he refused to allow one Pakistani man to sponsor his 15-year-old bride in August 2009. "I can find no section (of law) that states the marriage is 'invalid' or 'void,'" Bulmer wrote in e-mails obtained by lawyer Richard Kurland under Access of Information. "I am afraid the age does not invalidate the marriage even if it is illegal to marry." We are saying to the world and to America that you cannot deny us joy and happiness, Zahar told the grooms, all of whom were dressed in identical black suits and hailed from the nearby Jabalia refugee camp. Each groom received a gift of 500 dollars from Hamas. The pre-pubescent girls, dressed in white gowns and adorned with garish make-up, received bridal bouquets. We are presenting this wedding as a gift to our people who stood firm in the face of the siege and the war, Local Hamas strongman Ibrahim Salaf said in a speech.
