When I wrote this post, I could not be sure if the Al Arabia article was real or if it was just a hoax.
Raymond Ibrahim to the rescue!
Not only is it true, but Raymond provides the background for this is the Haddiths, which are the sayings and accounts of Mohamed.
With Mohammed having sex (raping) his nine year-old bride, telling men that they have to go through some sort of breastfeeding motion with an adult woman in order to be allowed to be in her presence without her husband being present, and having sex with corpses, no wonder the Left extols the virtues of Islam - it's a huge sex-fest of all varieties.
Read it all here:

This Arab Spring just gets better every day.
"Sahih Bukhari 7.18
The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said "But I am your brother." The Prophet said, "You are my brother in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.' "
I hold that the very fact that Abu-Bakr not only acquiesced to this but also did not physically attack Mohamed is the clearest example we have that Mohamed had an incredible amount of psychological control over his followers.
"The controversy about a husband having sex with his dead wife came about after a Moroccan cleric spoke about the issue in May 2011.
Zamzami Abdul Bari said that marriage remains valid even after death adding that a woman also too had the same right to engage in sex with her dead husband. " [Italics mine]
"But it seems his view on partners having sex with their deceased partners has found its way to Egypt one year on.
Egyptian prominent journalist and TV anchor Jaber al-Qarmouty on Tuesday referred to Abdul Samea’s article in his daily show on Egyptian ON TV and criticized the whole notion of “permitting a husband to have sex with his wife after her death under a so-called ‘Farewell Intercourse’ draft law.”
“This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues? Did Abdul Samea see by his own eyes the text of the message sent by Talawi to Katatni? This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner?' "
Unfortunately, I think that the voices of reason in Egypt will be either silenced or beaten down. Our Leftist media could not get enough of swooning over the protests that brought down Mubarak's regime. Those who saw an Islamic State in the works were ignored. Expect more lunacy down the road.
