We all know the Islamophobic camps are not averse to telling a few porkies and/or stories riddled with discrepancies; just ask Walid Shoebat and Kamal Saleem.
However, Wafa Sultan’s spiel, as far as I know, has never been doubted UNTIL NOW!!!
She, twice, makes mention of an emotive suicide story of her niece in her attempts to malign Muslims and Islam BUT her two stories are NOT consistent with each other. Did she make this story up? Does she even have a “niece” who committed suicide, never mind a “niece” who was subjected to an abusive marriage???
Is Wafa Sultan LYING?
The video is produced by RefutingActs17
Wafa, the discrepancies continue to flow…
You would expect her not to contradict herself with regards to the BASIC details of age. However, it gets a little more interesting as Syrian law has the minimum marriageable age for a female listed as 17, with judicial approval it can be dropped down to 13. Wafa claims her niece married at the age of 10 (and 11) this throws FURTHER DOUBT on Wafa Sultan’s story:
Marriage Age: minimum marriage age is 18 years for males and 17 for females; judicial discretion for males of 15 years and females of 13 years; judge may withhold permission for marriage if court finds incompatibility in age between betrothed parties [http://www.law.emory.edu/ifl/legal/syria.htm]
Perhaps these laws were not in force at the time. We don’t know BUT Wafa should explain...
Wafa, care to explain?
We ask Wafa Sultan or one of her representatives to explain the discrepancies in the video as well as the irregularities concerning the legality of the said “marriage”. Surely, Wafa SHOULD know the age at which her niece died as well as the low age of marriage. Wafa, why the discrepancies?
In the mean time, please stop giving these people cash. Wafa has plenty already. Really, she does. We have already seen Walid Shoebat raking the dollars in, Wafa will not be lagging too far behind – Islamophobia is a big business for those who can spin a few yarns and sabre-rattle against Muslims.
Is Wafa Sultan calling for a nuclear attack?
