    Early marriage, sex-after-death laws to be passed in Egypt

    I've been to Egypt. It's a Muslim country where women need not to wear burkas, where 20 million of its people are Orthodox and where tourists can wear short shorts.

    Sadly, the Islamic Brotherhood has taken over and they're proponents of necrophilia and pedophilia laws.

    Allahu Akbar!! LOL

    Egypt's 'plans for farewell intercourse law so husbands can have sex with DEAD wives' branded a 'complete nonsense'

    Alleged proposals to allow Egyptian husbands to legally have sex with their dead wives for up to six hours after their death have been branded a 'complete nonsense'.

    The controversial new 'farewell intercourse' law was claimed, in Arab media, to be part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

    They reported it would also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women's rights of getting education and employment.

    But sources inside the Egyptian Embassy in London have said the claims were 'completely false', 'forbidden in Islam' and 'could never imagine it happening'.

    The source said the proposal, if it even existed, had not reached the parliament - although it was also admitted it could be the work of an extremist politician.

    Although not officially rebutted, the claims that someone inside Egypt could introduce such a law provoked widespread scepticism.

    The initial report, published on reputable English language website alarabiya.net, claimed Egypt's National Council for Women was reportedly campaigning against the changes.

    It said the group said that 'marginalising and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country's human development'.
