Muslim cleric: Some wives need to be beaten
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | Friday, September 3, 2004

In his sermon broadcast on Qatar TV, a Muslim cleric claims some wives, due to their nature, must be beaten.

The cleric's Aug. 27 message to the faithful was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute TV Monitor Project, or MEMRI TV. The video of the sermon can be viewed on MEMRI's website.

"We must know that [wife] beating is a punishment in Islamic religious law," the cleric stated. "No one should deny this because this was permitted by the Creator of Man, and because when you purchase an electric appliance or a car you get instructions – a catalogue, explaining how to use it. The Creator of Man has sent down this book [the Quran] in order to show man which ways he must choose."

The speaker claims the non-Muslim world is ignorant of the truth about wife beating.

"We shouldn't be ashamed before the nations of the world who are still in their days of ignorance, to admit that these [beatings] are part of our religious law," he said. "We must remind the ignorant from among the Islamic Nation who followed the [West] that those [Westerners] acknowledge the wondrous nature of this verse," he said, noting that there are three types of women "with whom life is impossible without beatings."

He continued: "In America, 6 million women are beaten by their husbands every year. These are their own official statistics. Four-thousand to six-thousand women die as a result of their husbands' beatings. London police, every year, answer 100,000 phone calls and complaints of attacks against wives. In France, their slogan is, 'Beat the wife morning, noon and night, and don't ask her why – she knows the reason.'"

The cleric then defends the practice but qualifies his approval, saying Islam forbids beating anyone, even animals, on the face.

Claiming women naturally want to be controlled by men, the cleric declared, "Allah has created woman, whether Muslim or infidel, so she is happy under a strong man who will protect her and lives with her."

Concluding his message, the preacher explains to his listeners the three types of women who must be beaten:

"[The Koran says:] 'and beat them.' This verse is of a wondrous nature. There are three types of women with whom a man cannot live unless he carries a rod on his shoulder. The first type is a girl who was brought up this way. Her parents ask her to go to school and she doesn't – they beat her. 'Eat' – 'I don't want to' – they beat her. So she became accustomed to beatings; she was brought up that way. We pray Allah will help her husband later. He will only get along with her if he practices wife beating.

"The second type is a woman who is condescending toward her husband and ignores him. With her, too, only a rod will help. The third type is a twisted woman who will not obey her husband unless he oppresses her, beats her, uses force against her, and overpowers her with his voice."

'Eat' – 'I don't want to' – they beat her. So she became accustomed to beatings; she was brought up that way. We pray Allah will help her husband later. He will only get along with her (and she will only eat) if he practices wife beating.

Surely Allah knows there are some of the lasses that you have to slap around a bit...or, I suppose in a pinch you could ply 'em with chocolates.

I don't know if all this is really in the Koran. I suppose someday I might read it if I become really bored and can't sleep. If it is and I were an Imam and otherwise literate, it would embarrass me enough to white it out in all my copies of the Koran. Then I might try to highlight other passages. There must be some passages on torturing infidels or some such that could use a little more attention.

No, allah is the false god, and muhammad is his false prophet.

Muslim cleric's wives' reply, "Some husbands need to be muzzled."

"Now, shut up and take out the trash, you shiftless, worthless, no account deadbeat, hashish smoking loafer." his oldest wife explained.

"Don't be coming 'round here with hashish on your breath and lovin' on your mind!" one of his younger wives added.

This is only 2 types of wives. I wonder what the 3rd type of spouse who needs to be beaten is? Probably women who forget to feed the family camel...

You ever run the numbers regarding the so called numbers of American women beaten? 6 million a year....60 million in 10 years...then 120 million in 20 years. Another words in the past 20 years 1/3 to 1/2 of our population...practically all women and girls have been beaten by their husbands or boy friends....!

Even accounting for repeat "victims", the numbers seem awefully skewed...don't ya think?

Allah is the name a false prophet has for God. I don't know what the name means in Arabic. God's name mean "I am", which may be translated into other languages, I assume.

Just because the prophet is false and has written Satanic verses doesn't mean God wouldn't hear his children if they in good faith called Him by that name.

It's way more twisted than that. There is an official procedure. A few months ago I was following a link on here to an Arab station to read a transcript. Couldn't find that one, but did find one on how to Beat Your Wife. Interview with an Imam. They even discussed the Imam in Spain who was jailed for writing a book on wife beating.

Goes something like this.

1. If the wife is disobedient, talk to her.

2. If talking doesn't work, bring in 2 male relatives (1 wife's, 1 husband's) to reason with her and make her understand her disobedience.

3. Withold husbandly affections...... Put her out of the marriage bed to punish her even more.

4. Beat wife. Beating is not allowed on face, breast or abdomen area. Do not beat in anger.

An aside- In Egypt the man will only be prosecuted if the wife is hospitalized from a beating more than 3 weeks. Otherwise it's just a disagreement.

It is a FACT that a LOT of women need to be beaten to the bathroom! Otherwise, you might be in for a long wait!
