Sweden has legalized child marriages For Muslim refugees who come from countries where Sharia was the law of the land

Despite clearly contradicting Swedish law, underage immigrant wives have been repeatedly allowed to stay with their husbands by Sweden’s local municipalities, which defend their decisions by citing humanitarian issues. An immigrant crisis of unprecedented proportions has brought with it problems which Sweden hadn’t known previously, such as polygamy and underage brides. Recently, two juvenile immigrant girls in Karlskrona were reported to be staying with their husbands. Neither of the girls was separated from their adult men, even though minors are not allowed to tie the knot in Sweden.

One of the cases involves an underage wife who came to Karlskrona with her husband and a small child. In the other case, the girl was pregnant upon arrival. Despite these obvious violations of Swedish law, Karlskrona Social Committee chairperson Ingrid Hermansson of the Center Party defended the municipality’s decision. The rule of the thumb in such cases, the community acts “for the child’s best” interest.

“We do not accept or condone child marriages, but the law also states that individual trials should be conducted in each case. Our assessment was that the girls could live with their men during the asylum process,” Ingrid Hermansson said during the debate with the regional council, as quoted by the local newspaper Blekinge Läns Tidning. This approach, however, was not shared by Camilla Brunsberg of the Conservative Party, who contended that the couples should have been dissolved. According to Brunsberg, the girls should have instead been placed in a residential care home for children and young persons, whereas their spouses should have been referred to the Migration Board’s asylum residence. Brunsberg argued that there was no other alternative, as all other solutions implied that Sweden was backtracking in its acceptance of child marriage.

Brunsberg also voiced doubt whether the underage girls really dare to say the truth about their situation when interrogated by Swedish authorities, suggesting that individual assessments in reality did not carry much weight. Nevertheless, Ingrid Hermansson argued that individual trials in cases of underage immigrants who are married will continue to be held, at least until the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL) comes up with different guidelines on the matter.

At present, Swedish legislation on child marriages seems to be applied differently in different municipalities. Earlier this year, the Administrative Court of Växjö ruled that a 14-year-old pregnant girl could be placed with her adult husband’s immigrant family, arguing that this was part of their culture. Remarkably, both the girl and her spouse were highly critical of the Swedish law banning underage marriage. “When you are the midst of war and fleeing for your life, you do not think about the laws in force in the country you’re heading to,” the girl told the Swedish tabloid newspaper Expressen.

Previously, the Migration Board identified 132 married children, of them 129 girls and 3 boys, most of them coming from Syria, Iraq and Afghanisatan. Most of them were 16 or 17, while 14 of them were aged 15 or under. Part of the problem is that neither the Migration Board nor the Swedish municipalities have any routine to detect married minors. Therefore, no comprehensive assessments have been made. In its current state, the Swedish marriage law has fetched a lot of criticism from, among others, Swedish star advocate and women’s rights campaigner Elisabeth Massi Fritz, who called this practice “unacceptable.” Earlier, the Swedish authorities, including Justice Minister Morgan Johansson and Minister of Children Åsa Regnér, have repeatedly pledged to review the law on child marriages.

    Critical Mass Wedding
    Photographs supposedly documenting a Hamas-organized mass wedding of adult men and pre-pubescent girls actually show young relatives of the brides and grooms.

    Ahmed Jarbour, the Hamas official in Gaza responsible for social activity, [said] the youngest girl to marry at the ceremony was 16 years old. He said most brides were above the age of 18.

    [Jarbour] explained the minors seen in the video [walking down the aisle with the grooms] were family of the bride or groom. He said it was tradition for little girls to dress in gowns similar to the bride.

    A review of the video found some of the little girls, speaking in Arabic, state they are at the wedding of a family member. The girls interviewed do not say anything about themselves getting married.

    Multiple calls to Palestinians who participated in the wedding affirmed the little girls are not themselves the brides.

    Tim Marshall, a reporter who covered the event for Sky News, later posted a denunciatory blog entry condemning the Internet-circulated claims of “child brides” as nothing more than uninformed, scurrilous rumor-mongering:

    The men and women are sitting. Then the fireworks explode, the cheering begins, and in march the Hamas scouts, bashing drums, looking every inch the future Hamas fighters many will be. Then the grooms, aged about 18 to about 28. They are holding hands with their young nieces and cousins, little girls aged from about 3 to 8, made up to the nines, wearing white wedding dresses.

    Up they all go to the stage, the cheering and music grows ever louder. The girls were having the time of their lives, but, getting a little bored after a while, came down off the stage to dance with each other and play games.

    Our report on this [wedding event] put it into context, saying that it took place just a mile from the Israeli border and was a message from Hamas about its strength confidence and future fighters. Oh, and that the brides were elsewhere. Pretty straightforward.

    It never struck me for a moment that the little girls might later be described in the bloggersphere as the brides! How naive I am.

    Dozens, and I mean dozens, of websites took the video of the event and wrote lurid stories about Hamas mass paedophilia with headlines about ‘450 child brides’, and endless copy about how disgusting this was, how it showed how depraved Islam is, et al, ad infinitum. Site after site jumped on the story, linking from one totally wrong load of rubbish to the next.

    It showed how much some people want to believe nonsense like this, as it reinforces their prejudices, always a comfortably fun thing to do. But Hamas, and the jihadists do enough terrible things without having to make things up about them. Most of the stuff I read was outright, unthinking, gleeful, Islamophobia from people who clearly knew nothing about Arab popular culture. It’s as if they really believe that because there are [real] examples of child brides, it means all weddings are with child brides.

    Who would you believe, the reporter who went to the event, or a desperately poor version of citizen journalist, sitting at home, making things up, not checking anything, and either unknowingly or deliberately, writing hysterical anti Islamic nonsense?

      If this happens in the U.S. as you say , you’ll see bunch dead Muslims , Just like back in the 70’s when the people of Viet-Nam moved into the gulf coast with their boats using push poles with they’re nets. They wee wiping out the fishing industries . Local fisherman got tired of it took matters into their own hands . They had a lot shooting’s they were shooting them right off the boats and sinking them.. Even tho this is different the same will happen ..

    That is not what the actual article states. Sweden is not allowing child marriages to to take place in Sweden, but they are allowing Muslim’s from other countries to remain in Sweden with their child brides.
    That does not by any means make the issue anymore palatable, or correct.

    Wow, it takes a special kind of douchebag to create this kind of fake news. First, they take a photo of girls and their fathers going to a hijab ceremony (NOT a wedding), falsely implying this is a mass wedding photo. Then they make up crap about Sweden changing their laws on underage marriage, which Sweden is not doing in any way, shape or form. Even the punctuation in this story is a lie.

    Mental illness should not be encouraged. Just because some mentally ill murdering scum 1400 years ago decided to make up a cult that would allow him and his supporters to rape, murder and do anything they wanted under the protection of a cult/religion. No right thinking person can believe that any of this is OK. You live by the laws of the country you are in. Other wise scum begin to destroy humanity and it’s common since laws. Anyone that should approve this should offer up they female family members to this sickness.

    It’s gross. Those girls should be in school and not be sex objects for grown men. Is child abuse ok now because it’s racist not to let an adult man rape a 12 yr old. These migrants are the ones who need to learn more about the culture the move to instead of making the rest of the world do it. Ridiculous.

    Shame! Kids should be protected from pedophile Muslims! They should be taught what their options are… Marriage is sexual slavery and they are victims of perverted “husbands”. How can a child even understand what she is or is getting into? How can she have a choice? Why is war in Syria and other Arab countries? Sinners… Breaking Divine Natural Laws! So, Sweden, what are you going to do??

NO PEACE JUST LIES AND WAR AND DEATH. THEY WANT YOU TO BOW DOWN TO THEM AND BE GOOD LITTLE SEX SLAVES OR DIE!!!! ALL COUNTRIES SHOULD SEND THEM BACK TO MIDDLE EAST. KICK THEM OUT OF YOUR COUNTRIES. THE OLD WOMAN AND THE SNAKE: A PARABLE

    An old woman was walking down the road when she saw a gang of thugs beating a poisonous snake. She rescued the snake and carried it back to her home, where she nursed it back to health. They became friends and lived together for many months. One day they were going into town, and the old woman picked him up and the snake bit her. Repeatedly. “O God,” she screamed, “I am dying! Why? I was your friend. I saved your life! I trusted you! Why did you bite me?”

    The snake looked up at her and said, “Lady, you knew I was a snake when you first picked me up.”

    WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH THESE EVIL SNAKES ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!! IT IS TIME FOR A REAL WAR!!!! FOR GOD JESUS CHRIST, COUNTRY, YOUR JOBS AND FAMILY AND HOMES!!!! LEARN FROM REAL HISTORY AND LISTEN TO GOD. TRUST AND OBEY GOD AND GET SAVED!!!! JESUS CHRIST SAVES PEOPLE FROM HELL!

    The Swedish government does not bother to protect their own citizens When some “Muslim” felons rape the Swedish women. The Swedish government now even shields child molestors by legitimizing their repeated child rape via “marriage.” It was a Swedish zoo that euthanized healthy lion cubs. The Swedish government discards safety of its own citizens, the protection of children, and precious wild life! What does the Swedish government value? Child molestors obviously!

    The text is copied word by word from an article first circulated in 2015. This makes it not news but olds.

    Text is largely factually correct but the heading is clickbait, as the (possibly) original heading states: “Minderåriga flickor tilläts vara kvar i äktenskapet” or, ‘underage girls allowed to remain in marriage’ – a decision made locally, concerning a few individuals, and not a change in law.
