Check out this video from the Religion of Peace:
Wife beating, what a wonderous thing!
There’s even more profound insight from this lawyer (Dr. Ibrahim Elias) on Qatar TV, who debates wife beating with other women on a panel. How could any woman live the islamic life, if this is what they preach? Never mind those whoe are converting in droves (Germany, I’m looking at you). The video can be found here.
Some choice snippets:
Dr. Ibrahim Elias: Before verse 34 in the Al-Nisa Sura in the Koran it says, “As for those from whom you fear disobedience…” “Disobedience” means a wife who refrains from obeying the man. The man is the guardian in his home, he is the judge, and of better judgment. When the wife rebels…
Moderator Muna Al-Shazli [female]: The judge and of better judgment?
Elias: Indeed, he is of better judgment. The man is the judge in his home.
Al-Shazli: There are many cases of people, including Arabs, where the wife has better judgment.
Elias: I am speaking as a rule.
Al-Shazli: Excuse me for a moment, if we accept everything in our lives as a given, we will never make progress. I’m usually neutral but there is no one here to help me, so let’s discuss this…
Elias: I am neutral…
Al-Shazli: You claim that as a rule, the man is of better judgment?
Elias: Allah claims this.
So because the man always has better judgment, he can never be wrong. If the wife disputes his judgment, or does not obey, she deserves to be beaten. Perfectly logical, right?
Dr. Elias: Our civil law and Islamic law do not present wife-beating as a rule, but they deal with a situation where a man beats his wife. What should we do then? My friend, if you beat your wife and it’s only light beatings in order to set things straight – that’s it. We forgive light beatings. We tell him, “They are not considered an assault, but discipline.”Al-Shazli: What do you mean by light beatings? I’d very much like to know what they are…
Elias: Light beatings, from the legal aspect…
Al-Shazli: I’d like to say something. When a man treats his wife this way, when his hand is like an iron rod, she is hurt, physically and mentally… What kind of idea is this “light beatings”?
Elias: Light beatings are not excessive. They don’t leave a mark, don’t break bones, don’t cause bleeding, and don’t cause death. These are light beatings. With some women – nothing helps except beatings.
Those darn women, its just that nothing else will HELP them understand.
And finally, the lawyer goes for a grand slam:
Elias: For example, a man comes home from work and finds his wife watching TV. She doesn’t even get up to make him food. He tells her once, twice, and asks again. If only once he would raise his voice and beat her, she would get up to prepare food for him and by the next day she’d be obedient. This will last for a week and when she forgets, he will remind her. Let’s admit it, the woman was created from a crooked rib.
I would like to send a message from here: The wife must speak quietly and she must carry out all her duties toward her husband and family. She must not give her husband the chance to beat her, and if he has already beaten her, she must treat him in a way that will not cause him to repeat it, so the beatings won’t become a habit.
So, once again, its all the woman’s fault. Why oh why won’t she just STOP giving him reason to beat her? The length these guys go to in order to avoid take personal responsibility never ceases to amaze me. The U.S. is the cause of all their country’s ills, and women deserve to be treated like animals.
P.S. This sounds like the “uncovered meat” defense. If you are beaten by your husband? Your fault. If you are gang raped? Also, your fault.
