4 wives and child brides - why they hate us?

Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

An oft overlooked, rarely discussed or even acknowledged aspect of militant Islam are their purported sanctioning for Muslim men to have multiple wives and child brides. Maybe this is the genesis of "70 virgins" promised to "martyrs"? Could someone expert on these tenets clear this up?

Also, I have heard that dust-Bin-Laudin is one of some 40 something children? How many off spring has he sired?

Has anyone, or you Mr. Pipes, ever noticed the general date coincident facts of the "Women's Movement" of the later 60's and the onslaught of air plane hijackings? (true some of these had to do with Cuba, but didnt they get the idea from Middle East?)

Self directed women are probably not going to tolerate child brides or multiple wives - maybe these men are fighting for their "rights" to have harems of wives? -

Could this be the REAL reason for why "they" hate us?
