Polygamy and Terrorism Polygamy puts awful strains on society. Let's assume that only 1 Muslim man in 10 can afford the statutory 4 wives and that other men can only afford one. In a town of 200 people, 100 men and 100 women, the 10 men take a total of 40 women by offering more money to the girl's fathers. That leaves 60 women for 90 men. 30% of them find no wife at all. The actual situation is worse with Palestinians and Bedoins. Some men marry more than 4 women. He'll divorce surplus-wives as necessary for the bureaucracy's sake, but he'll keep an ex-wife confined to the house so she'll be available for "creature comfort". The one Palestimian man featured on BBC, have more than 15 women and near 500 granchildren; That leaves no women for the remaining 14 men. The Saudi royal family, for example, has about 5,000 princes. There are reports that each prince gets a monthly allowance of $250,000. A cash flow of $3 million per year could support at least 20 wives. 20 wives for each of 5,000 princes is 100,000 women, leaving 100,000 men with no marriage prospects. Saudi oil money paid for the harems. It is the wealthiest country in the Middle East so the problem of men not being able to find wives is at its worst there. Most of the 9-11 perpetrators were single Saudis.Most Muslim men can't find fives because neighboring countries have the same customs. Men with no attachment to society easily become terrorist; a successful suicide bomber is guaranteed 75 virgins in the afterlife. If the only way to get a woman is to commit suicide, so be it. Newspapers report that most Palestinian suicide bombers who blow themselves up to kill Israelis come from the lower ranks to get women in the afterlife. Given the sexual forces involved, militant Islam will be a tough opponent . Gender imbalance fuels terrorism in the Middle East.Peace is a Joke.
