Skip to comments.Wife Beating: An Arab How-To
Posted on 11/05/2004 12:23:01 PM PST by Ahriman
On October 5, France expelled Algerian-born Imam Abdel Qader Bouziane for telling a French magazine that Muslim husbands may beat their wives. This follows the sentencing on January 14 of the Egyptian-born Sheik Muhammad Kamal Mustafa, the imam of the mosque of the Spanish city of Fuengirola, Costa del Sol, for publishing a book that explains that wife-beating is in accordance with Shariah law.
Sheik Yousuf Qaradhawi, one of the most influential clerics in Sunni Islam and head of the European Council for Fatwa and Research and the International Council of Muslim Clerics, has also advocated wife-beating on multiple occasions in his 1984 book "The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam," and on his weekly Al Jazeera program, which is popular among the surging number of European Muslims who increasingly look to religious leaders from the Middle East for religious guidance. This is particularly true with the growth of viewers watching Arab TV stations, available on satellite TV in Europe, which frequently airs shows dedicated to teaching a husband how to beat his wife. The following examples on this subject can be viewed at www.memritv.org.
Egyptian Professor Sabri Abd Al-Rauf of Al-Azhar University appeared on Iqra TV on September 13, and explained that "beating [one's wife] doesn't mean beatings with a rod or beatings that draw blood...The beatings are intended to instill fear...and declaring that he isn't satisfied with this wife."
Speaking on Syrian TV on July 26, Sheik Abd Al-Hamid Al-Muhajir explained that the Koran stipulates when a husband can beat his wife: "The Koranic verse refers only to a disobedient wife...First you must admonish...Then comes the stage of sending her to a separate bed...If this does not help either...it is said, 'and beat them'... What's better, that she gets slapped, or that she ruins her family, herself, and society?"
Islam--The religion of violence"--what does one expect coming from its author considering his pedophilic deeds.
I'll have to remember this next time Mrs. Maceman steps out of line.
The article makes it sound like there's something wrong with Muslims beating their wives. It's just freedom of religion, right?
I hope You ain't married to a Redneck Girl!
What's better, that she gets slapped, or that she ruins her family, herself, and society?" Umm... in this case, Mr. Moe-ham-head, I'd rather your society.
People v. Jones, 697 N.E.2d 457 (1998).
"Defendant took three wives. They wed into the Islamic faith. Defendant believed that the teachings of the Holy Koran empowered him to beat his wives. So he beat all three of them. Only two survived."
"Jeannie Boyd-Jones succumbed to massive injuries sustained as a result of a prolonged beating administered by defendant. Portions of her deep body fat liquified, and the tissue died as a result of the force applied. Over one-third of her blood supply permeated the internal body cavity lost to circulation as a result of the force applied. Her lower torso and shanks were one massive contusion, with no portion of her frame free of visible welts and bruises. Jeannie Boyd-Jones was beaten to death. Of that there can be no dispute."
"The 'stick' was 36 inches in length and 2 inches in diameter. It was only slightly larger in length and slightly smaller in its barrel than the Louisville Slugger employed by Mark McGwire. The trial court characterized it as a cudgel. Over the course of 8 1/2 hours it was applied with full force to various portions of Jeannie's body. At times, defendant would hold it with both hands like a baseball bat and swing for the fences with all the force he could muster. The defendant is six feet two inches in height and weighs 250 pounds."...
A true blessing in disguise if there ever was one.
We should also send a copy to Patricia Ireland.
The thing about this here muslim issue is the basic lying.
They will deny wife beating.
When lying, they justify the lying, because the falsehood advances islam...the highest goal.
The lying is called "al Taqiyah" and is religiously sanctioned, justified, encouraged...to advance islam.
So whe some supposedly moderate muslim, say in the USA, denies wife beating, ask him to explain current articles about it.
The same can be used about cutting off hands, murder of infidels, ad infinitim. Lying is so fundamentally muslim, they often cannot tell the true from the false, even among themselves.
Is Arafat dead or alive?
Interesting. I wonder how many Fatwas I'll get if I publically state a few things Muslims would hate to get around:
1. Muhammed was a pedophile. Big time, girls as young as 11 years old, and lots of them.
2. Muhammed was a common highwayman - he robbed pilgrams for many years.
3. Islam was a Jewish sect until Muhammed became insulted that Jewish leaders would not accept him into a higher position in that faith.
See post # 8.
NOW would rather spend its time bashing the decent man in the White House than attack the world's real evils against women. It's easier for them that way.
"Please, grant one wish before Allah.
Before you shoot me in the head for my being gang-raped,
at least tell me .... did Patricia Irland ever answer even one of my letters?"
He's the replacement for Schroedinger's Cat
He reached out to even the prostitutes, treating them with love and compassion. He spoke to women in public (many examples---the woman at the well comest to mind) which was a huge change from the way women were treated in public in those days. He called others "my sister" openly.
Parts of the medieval code of Chivalry came about because knights were emulating Christ's honor of women.
These animals rape, beat, and put their women through what must be emotional hell.
All Arabs are not Muslims.
Lying is so fundamentally muslim, they often cannot tell the true from the false, even among themselves.
Hey, wait a minute, are you talking about Democrats or Muslims...just checking.
I have sold many lambs to Middle Easterners over the years. Every time they buy a lamb, they figure some way to tell me they should get it cheaper. One told me that he picked up a nail in his tire in my driveway and that the cost of the repair should be my burden. One told me that the last lamb was too tough and I should give him this one for free. Another got mad because the barn cats climbed all over his car with muddy paws and it would need a new paint-job. They all had huge heavy-set American girlfriends who seemed to wait on them hand and foot. They are always working a scam or an angle on everything.
Boy was Imam stupid. He should have come to the US to publish. He wouldn't have gotten kicked out.
Silly me, I had no idea the beatings had a noble purpose.
it is said, 'and beat them'... What's better, that she gets slapped, or that she ruins her family, herself, and society?"
So what's supposed to happen in the far more likely event the husband ruins his family, himself, or society?
They got 'how-to' movies on 24/7.
Hollywood should re-release the movie "The Burning Bed" in Muslim countries.
Betcha this is what he said.
Ted knows that a woman won't talk when her mouth is full...
Islam was never a "Jewish sect." Muhammed became p!$$ed off that Jewish leaders would not accept him as a "prophet" so he declared war on the Jewish tribe of the Qurayish, which went on for many years due to fake truces ("hudna") and finally ended when Muhammed exterminated all the males of the Qurayish and kept the women as slaves and concubines.
If you can't beat them drown them. - Teddy Kennedy
This is truely amazing. These people are nutballs from the get go!
"When lying, they justify the lying, because the falsehood advances islam...the highest goal."
>>>All Arabs are not Muslims.<<<
An obviously untrue statement, perhaps you meant to say, not all Arabs are Muslims?
I thought the same thing.:)
Oh, there's a technique?? I did not know this!
Say, I'm beginning to wonder if they aren't all just a bunch of kinky spankers justifying it with religion. Not that there's anything wrong with that... ;^)
I'm overwhelmed at the description of that beating.
