Islam permits sexual relations with infant “wife”

In relation to the post about an Austrian woman being sentenced to two years in jail for saying that Muhammad was a child molester, around four months ago Pamela Geller posted an audio recording in which a Christian Arab interviewed a Muslim on the subject of Islam’s allowance of infant and child brides. It’s at YouTube, and I’ve also put it on my web space. It’s about ten minutes long and a 10MB download.LA replies:
I found the Christian Arab interviewer so repetitive and the Muslim interviewee so inarticulate that I didn’t listen to the whole thing. But this is shocking. Clearly there is some Islamic authority (which the interview does not clearly identify) that allows infant girls to be married, and allows the husband to tough her sexually, and the Muslim guest on the show sees this as completely normal and defends it, on the commonsensical (to a Muslim) grounds that a wife is a wife.
