TrueAmerican fell victim to a hoaxed image from an unreliable source. For those of you who don't know, the legal age for marriage for women in Palestine is 15. Many women's groups in Palestine are trying to change that

From OP:

To what extent this story is biased and false I do not know.

I said right there I did not know. Someone sent me the link in email. And I had to go to work, so it was a post and go and let ATS sort it out till I got back. I see you guys sorted it out.

But I do not knowingly post false information here or anywhere for any reason.

That was my 660th thread, and I think the first one I have ever had end up in the HOAX forum. It might be the second, but I don't think more than that. Oh well. Can't win em all.

Aww crap, I accidentally edited the OP instead of replied... Double screw up. Time for the trash bin I guess.

I am no fan of Hamas, but can anybody vouch for the credibility of the source? Is it possible that the picture we see could be something innocent like a daddy-daughter dance?

Hamas are also fanatical muslims. As such, they would not take to kindly to their women going around without a veil or head covering. So if these girls are Hamas brides, why aren't their heads covered?

Lies of Isralei propaganda.

Jarbour, like two other top officials contacted by WND, was offended by the suggestion Hamas would marry off little girls.

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

Buddhasystem has nailed it

Sky News (UK) actually attended the event.

The children are the nieces, cousins etc of the grooms. The brides are elsewhere.

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.

Sky News

I guess it was too much to expect facts to get in the way of a lurid headline

This practice has not been outlawed in many parts of America? Is that a typo?

There is at least one vid on Youtube about this.

Although according to the Islamic faith you can marry a small child (and yes, it is very appalling to me), that is not what we're seeing here.

It's a tradition to have 'an innocent' give away the groom in some cultures. Similar to how we have the father give away the bride in our weddings, they have young female relatives give away the groom. What you're seeing there is young female relatives taking the grooms to meet the brides- not the brides themselves.

Some people should research before they post such rubbish.
Or maybe he knew exactly what he was doing.

Should be banned imo.

Divide and conquer. Misinformer. He should be gone.

So, does this mean this thread is busted, debunked and should be labeled as HOAX?

Although I have heard of child brides, I've also heard that was to secure a future for that family ( sold?) or whatever and that these children don't have sex until they're of age...whatever that is.

Child brides is one thing in that way, but to force children into slavery and child labor along with prostitution is extremely inhumane. I've also heard some religious sect of the Jews or old ways also did this in some form.

Some countries also have a much earlier age of consent and marriage.
