Pots and kettles

A propos Muhammed as a paedophile, by the way, this link is well worth reading.

Orthodox Jews strictly follow all the dictates of the Talmud (the non-Orthodox do so selectively). According to the Talmud, “a girl of the age of three years and one day may be betrothed by intercourse " (Niddah 44b, Yebamoth 57b). For the Talmud, the legal age of sexual maturity for girls is three years and one day -and for boys 9 years of age.

As New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind observed,

“If you’re a pedophile, the best place for you to come to are some of the (ultra-Orthodox) Jewish communities,” Why? Because you can be a pedophile and no one’s going to do anything.” (FORWARD, March 13, 2009).
