Arab street angry over Gaza attacks

Tens of thousands gathered in Yemen to
protest against the Israeli attack [AFP]

Protesters across the Middle East have held a second day of demonstrations against Israel's military assault on the Gaza Strip.

In the occupied West Bank, one protester was killed and at least two others critically injured by Israeli fire at a protest near Ramallah on Sunday.

In Yemen, tens of thousands of people gathered in and around a stadium in the capital, Sanaa, chanting anti-Israeli slogans and criticising Arab leaders for failing to act.

from Reuters :

WASHINGTON, Dec. 28 / -- The Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) today called on American Muslims and other people of
conscience to contact public officials and urge them to condemn Israeli
attacks on the Gaza Strip ...

As of Sunday eve - at  the time of this posting - there were   12,714 news articles »  on "Arabs throughout Middle East protest Israel air strikes on Gaza"

I could not find ANY  news of protests   regarding the Saudi "judge" that refused to annul the marriage of an EIGHT YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL to a 58 year old monster

Oh, a woman's group did issues a press release :

A Saudi Arabian Women's Rights group has condemned a judge refusing to annul the marriage of an 8-year-old girl to a 58-year-old man.

The Society of Defending Women's Rights in Saudi Arabia has called on the minister of justice and human rights groups to interfere in the case by divorcing the girl from the man who was married off by her father to settle his debts.

In its statement Wednesday, the Society said the judge's decision goes against children's 'basic rights'. Marrying children makes them "lose their sense of security and safety. Also, it destroys their feeling of being loved and nurtured. It causes them a lifetime of psychological problems and severe depression.”

So, where are the Muslim women and men that ,o're the weekend , found their way to the streets  - the "hundreds of thousands..." that angrily protest against other issues , while their own "religious" courts allow this  horrific child abuse ???
