Spain Submits to Islamic Adoption Laws

I.e., sharia law.  This is one of the gateway sharia laws – Islamic “family” law – that Muslims are keen openly advocate for in the U.S. via The Islamization of Spanish Jurisprudence

To the extent that European lawmakers are willing to graft Islamic legal principles onto Europe’s secular legal codes, Islamic Sharia law could easily become a permanent reality in Spain and across the continent.

Spain has acceded to the demands of the Islamist government in Morocco by agreeing that Moroccan children adopted by Spanish families must remain culturally and religiously Muslim.

The agreement obliges the Spanish government to establish a “control mechanism” that would enable Moroccan religious authorities to monitor the children until they reach the age of 18 to ensure they have not converted to Christianity.

The requirement, which will be enshrined in Spain’s legal code, represents an unprecedented encroachment of Islamic Sharia law within Spanish jurisprudence. The move also represents a frontal assault on the freedom of religion or belief, which is protected by Article 16 of the Spanish Constitution.

Spanish Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón said on February 17 that he had agreed to the demands of his Moroccan counterpart, the Islamist Mustafa Ramid, so that Spanish families who have been assigned Moroccan orphans can bring the children to Spain.

Adopting children in Morocco has always been problematic. But the procedure became vastly more complicated in 2012, when Morocco’s newly elected Islamist government announced measures to prevent non-Muslim foreigners from adopting Moroccan children.

According to the Casablanca-based NGO Feminine Solidarity Association (ASF), Morocco has an alarmingly high rate of child abandonment; an average of 24 children are abandoned every day (or around 8,700 every year) throughout the country. (ASF says many children are abandoned because of Article 490 of the Moroccan Penal Code, which stipulates one year in prison for anyone found guilty of having sexual relations outside of marriage.)

Statistically, the future for Moroccan orphans is bleak. A consortium of six NGOs reports that 80% of the children who grow up in Moroccan orphanages become delinquents, and 10% end up committing suicide. Only 10% become productive members of society.

Because of its geographic proximity, Spain has emerged as a key destination for Moroccan orphans. In 2011, the year before the Islamist government intervened to freeze the adoption process, 254 Moroccan children were assigned to Spanish families.

The Western concept of adoption — by which an adopted child becomes the true child of the adoptive parents — has never existed in Morocco (nor in most other Muslim countries).

Instead, Islamic law governs adoption through a system called “Kafala,” a legal guardianship which allows a non-Muslim person to assume responsibility for the protection, education and maintenance of an abandoned child, but which prohibits a non-Muslim from formally adopting or assuming custody of that child.

According to Kafala, the “adopted” child must keep the name and surname of his biological parents. Moreover, the child must remain Muslim and must maintain the nationality of his or her birth. In effect, non-Muslim guardians are prohibited from establishing a full parental relationship with the child, as would be the case with adoption.

  1. Their laws were unimportant if they allow this. This sharia will not tolerate different. The first nail is in their coffin

  2. Adios amigos!…the camel has more than stuck its head inside the tent.

  3. Hey man, we’re doing our part! We sleep around and we’re making 1000s of babies for allah! Now it’s up to you infidels and kufars to see to it that all of these ‘soldiers for allah’ are brought up to wage ‘holy’ jihad against you! WOW! SUCH A DEAL! And to think all we get to do is have sex!!!!! If I didn’t know better, I’d say we’re already living in allah’s ‘paradise’! OH, AND BY THE WAY, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT TELLING THESE KIDS THAT allah is a demon-god WHO DOESN’T EXIST–and mohammed was the biggest LIAR who ever lived!!!!!

  4. It seems once again the woman aka lower than dog, is put in jail for sex out of marriage, not the man.

    Where are these babies abandoned? What is the infantcide rate in Morocco? What are the orphanage like? Who runs them? Where do these stats come from? Someone in Morocco is interested enough to study orphans?

    This sad savage Sharia story seems to me a Human Rights issue.

    • “Human Rights?”…what are those?

      “Islam” has NO Human Rights…just unbridled allegiance and worship of their Allah!

      “Islam” is a friggin’ CULT! It does nothing but incite violence and DEATH!

      It is time that “WE, THE PEOPLE…”, ALL people of ALL countries…UNITE! Not just “WE, the People…”

  6. To ‘bobby90247′ and ‘savedpatriot’ – Are you aware that the American pastor who, as we speak, is being tortured in an Iranian hell hole went there, to Iran, to help his Christian family to establish an ORPHANAGE???

    Well, yeah, now it all makes sense! These friggin animals are so afraid that the muzzie babies that they have abandoned will fall into the hands of–God forbid–CHRISTIANS!!!

    We all need to pray hard for Pastor Saeed (spl?). I will try to download the link from Jihad Watch website. He desparately needs our prayers!

    • Da,
      Have been praying for this pastor and his family since day one of his arrest.

      He is my hero. Said he prays to keep his faith strong in the storm. That is my prayer too, except I have never been in the storm he is in. What a testimony of his faith.

      Up until now I have only read one article about adoption in the Middle East, it too was so sad.

      The little babies and small children are innocent victims. We need to fix that too some how.Not to mentions the mothers. So much to do, so little time.

      Father God please protect your adopted pastor son in jaile all the orphaned children who will be adopted by you.

    • I recently attempted to “enlighten” someone that the people in Iran “used to be” mostly Christian. To tell you the truth…I’m not so sure of that anymore. BUT, nonetheless…you’re right! Pastor Saeed and ALL Christians and non-Muslims trapped in “Muslim” countries, NEED OUR PRAYERS!

      • Iran had a very large Christian population- mostly Assyrians. the Christians were a huge driving force in Iran. they opened the first medical university in the world called Jundishapur which the muslims according to legend sacked. and the university of Nisbilis. they were a brilliant people until you know who invaded. the other major religion was Zoroastrianism who today number approx. 200,000. This is the religion of the magi and as you well know it was the magi who came to Jesus and announced that he was the messiah. Zoroastrianism is the driving force behind Christianity. Once they numbered over 60 million but genocide and forced conversions did them in. So sad.

        • Yes! I am very well aware of the Assyrian “plight” and everyone else at the hands of this most evil “CULT of Islam!”

          At least “we” are aware and “Pray” for them daily…

          Take Care and God Bless!

  7. Here’s Pastor Abedini’s unbelievable story. He desparately needs our prayers!

    Jihad Watch – Feb 24, 2013

    American pastor Saeed Abedini, jailed in a notoriously brutal Iranian prison for his Christian faith, is facing physical and psychological torture at the hands of captors demanding he renounce his beliefs, according to supporters.

    The 32-year-old married father of two, who left his home in Boise, Idaho, to help start an orphanage in his latest country, detailed “horrific pressures” and “death threats,” is a letter to family members, according to his U.S.-based attorneys.

    “My eyes get blurry, my body does not have the strength to walk, and my steps become very weak and shaky,” read the letter, sneaked out of Evin prison in Tehran. “They are only waiting for one thing…for me to deny Christ. But they will never get this from me.”

    Abedini was sentenced to eight years in prison for threatening the national security of Iran through his leadership in Christian house churches. The American Center for Law and Justice has provided legal support for Abedini’s family in the U.S. and is working through various government means to help win the pastor’s release. ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow said the fact that the torture is happening after Abedini’s trial, a sham he and his attorney were not even allowed to attend, is particularly chilling.

    “This is post conviction,” Sekulow said. “This isn’t about a trial. This is about life, and the message is you will be treated this way until you become a Muslim.”

    Family and friends of Abedini have long suspected the worst regarding his treatment in the prison, but the latest letter confirmed their fears.

    “This is only second time we’ve heard from him, but this makes sense in light of how Christians are being treated in Iran,” Sekulow said. “He can’t communicate this message every day. It’s our job to get this important message out to everyone.”

    Abedini has denied evangelizing in Iran since being arrested and admonished more than a decade ago. He has made over nine trips to Iran since 2009, but says he traveled to visit family and friends, and on his last trip over the summer of 2012, finalize details on a family established orphanage. Authorities pulled him off a bus last August and threw him into Evin prison….”

  8. Any out there who is considering raising an orphan from Morocco should close their eyes and imagine this child twenty years into the future. If you’re a Christain, you are an infidel. One night you could lose your head as you sleep in the next room. You will be hated by the very child you love simply because of your religion. I’m sure there are many European children who need a good home. Wait for one of these needy children.

  9. This is the only thing islam could possibly export—- it seems sex is the only human behaviour they have managed to master

    • To ‘Tommy’ – Yes, islam really is all about perverted sex–much more than we realize! There’s clearly an aspect to islam that we Westerners somehow seem to gloss over–and that would be the lure of sexual perversion and promescuity. Yes, we know that muslims can legally have at least 4 wives and that mohammed ‘married’ a 6-year-old baby and that jihadi suicide bombers get to roll around on a cloud with 72 whores, but here’s the thing!!!! Just imagine the lure and the grip that this kind of a licentious message has on an impressionable pre-teen and/ or adolescent young man’s developing hormones!!!!! Just think about it for a minute! You’re a 15-year-old kid with the hots for every pimply-faced young thing and I come along (as your teacher, i.e., your imam or your own father or mother) and tell you that you can have an eternal ‘hard on’ just for letting somebody blow your brains to kingdom come!!!! Duh–I mean, how could we miss it?????

      THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS EXACTLY WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT TO EVERY ADOLESCENT YOUNG MAN WITHIN THE LEGALLY PROTECTED CONFINES OF EVERY MOSQUE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!!! YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK!!!!!

  10. Ah, the mighty Spanish crumbling again to the muslims–what a gutless mob, still, realistically not much worse than other Eurabian countries.

    Will that Spanish turkey “DC” put in an appearance once more, and treat us to another “novel” on behalf of his beloved Spain? Will Spain once again enter another “Golden Era” (???) paying jizya to their cherished muslim overlords? Ah, the possibilities!

    Stay with C.S. as this fascinating drama unfolds…………………….!!

  11. [...] step from the Islamic Adoption Laws recently adopted in Spain. via Societal Health: H.R. 102 the Rehab and Ahmed Amer Foster Care [...]

  12. Yes, that is “kafala”. However, if the children becomes mature, he or she could choose what her/his beliefs.
