Wife to husband: please marry another woman! Man Bites Dog Alert from MEMRITV:
Following is an interview with Hiyam Darbak, who founded an Egyptian association for the promotion of polygamy, which aired on MBC TV on November 28, 2006:
Interviewer: How did you come up with the idea of founding the “One Wife is Not Enough” association?
Hiyam Darbak: I came up with the idea because of the new statistics in society – the rising rates of women who never married, divorced women, and widows in Arab countries, such as Iraq and Palestine, and in Islamic countries where there are wars and so on. Women without men have become a phenomenon in society, and they constitute time bombs in society — especially the millions of women who never married. There are armies of women who never married in Arab society. This also poses a danger to the morality of society.
Interviewer: You expect the wife to agree to share her husband with another woman?
Hiyam Darbak: Why not?
Interviewer: Are you married?
Hiyam Darbak: Yes.
Interviewer: Is your husband married to another woman?
Hiyam Darbak: I suggest this to him every month.
Interviewer: So he refuses?
Hiyam Darbak: He refuses because I am sufficiently cultured to keep him to myself….
