Hezbollah = Desertbruise? Mutaa!

This gives new meaning to the worlds oldest profession.

Mohammad, a 40-year old Lebanese Shiite who lives in Hezbollah’s stronghold in Beirut’s southern suburbs, was holding forth on the virtues of resistance, loyalty, and sex. “You could create the most loyal army by providing political power, social services and fulfilling the desires of your men — namely, sexual ones,” he declared.

“And Hezbollah has been very successful in this regard,” Mohammad continued. It is hard to disagree. Hezbollah liberated South Lebanon from Israeli occupation, expanded the Shiite community’s political power within the country, and has provided social services, such as health care and education, to its constituency since the 1980s. Today, it is also working to fulfill the sexual needs of its supporters, though a practice known as mutaa marriage.

Mutaa is a form of “temporary marriage” only acceptable within Shiite communities, one that allows couples to have religiously sanctioned sex for a limited period of time, without any commitments, and without the obligatory involvement of religious figures. In conservative Muslim societies known for their strict sense of propriety, mutaa offers an escape clause. The contract is very simple. The woman says: “I marry myself to you for [a specific period of time] and for [a specified dowry]” and the man says: “I accept.” The period can range between one hour and a year, and is subject to renewal. A Muslim woman can only marry a Muslim man, but a Muslim man can temporarily marry a Muslim, Christian, or Jewish woman, as long as she is a divorcĂ©e or a widow. However, those interviewed for this article confirmed that Hezbollah-the “Party of God”-has allowed the practice to spread to virgins or girls who have never married before, as long as the permission of her guardian (father or paternal grandfather) is obtained.

  1. Well in-between cutting off heads, and delegating 70 virgins to each homicide bomber .. at least this Muslum sect has something going for it !! Mutaa girl, now throw up a leg … !!

  2. Global Warming scientists have admitted manipulating data, hiding it, lying about it, and deleting it in their own emails and correspondence. These scientists (Mann, Wigley) are the main force pushing the Global Warming agenda .. not just a couple of rogue scientists. The Public has never been allowed to see their data or Computer models ….So where is the evidence for Global Warming and why should we believe it exists?? … the Earth has been on a cooling trend for 10 years, a stark contradiction to the Global Warming Hysteria …

    I hope CFLF can find the guts to address this issue. The Progressive Media does not seem to care about the Truth or Facts involved in this huge conspiracy … just move on despite the truth !!


    When Sara Palin’s email was hacked it was ok to print them, when Newt Gingrich’s private telecon cell call to John Boehner was illegally recorded it was ok to print the transcript, Dan Rather made a big story using forged National Guard documents, the Media and newspapers proudly reported on secret NSA wiretaps and Classified overseas detention centers … etc, etc … but suddenly news outlets like the New York Times take a moral stand on these ‘stolen’ emails and data discrediting the lie of Global Warming … ??

    Hypocrisy not impartiality, has become the norm …

    There is truly nothing new under the sun.
    The concept of women’s sexual “services” (ie, getting raped) being commandeered and sold for the benefit of temples (financially and/or in attracting / keeping congregants) goes back as far as the origin of recorded history in the West, in “The Histories” of Herodotus (the Mesopotamian, Canaanite, and Phoenician sects of Ishtar / Astarte), and is as recent as the “Children of God” cult of the 70s.
    The “Party of God” (as Hanin Ghaddar, author of the Foreign Policy article excerpted above points out is the literal translation of “Hezb’ollah”) is just being true to their name and lineage.
    Along these same lines, I’ve been waiting to see how and when our own home-grown Party o’ God, the Publicans (“GOP” / “POG,” surely not a coincidence), figures out a way to exploit their obviously deeply-repressed membership into providing more $ and an even more willing workforce by instituting some form of Sacred Sex for their own. With their own policies having impoverished most of the former middle-class, there’s just not that much cash money available to be snared*, and the rubes are getting restless, so they’ve gotta do something.
    So it’s not “whether,” but when…
    Remember, you heard it here first.

    *other than corporate cash, of course. But since when has “enough” ever been enough for any Publican?
