'Moderate' Islam? Saudi Therapist Instructs Men How to Beat Disobedient Wives...
Here's a topic that just won't die: Islam's hatred of women (250 Women Refused to Become Islamic Sex Slaves... So They Were Slaughtered Instead. Media?)... Here we are again. In the video below, one Saudi therapist shares detailed instructions on beating wives who have wronged their husbands. When is it appropriate, how to do so, etc. Just stuff that every Muslim man should know. The basics. Watch:
Unfortunately, some wives want to live a life of equality with their husband. This is a very grave problem.
There's nothing Muslims hate more than women who think their freedoms should be on par with those of men. You don't want to wear a head blanket? Thou shall be stoned. You ignored a strange man's comments? Jail time for you... followed by death if Sharia gets its way. Didn't want to marry your cousin?
But wait a second, let's give this guy a little credit. He's warning husbands against excessive violence. When beating your wives, you want to get your violence to just the right amount. Gentility thy name is Islam.
The beating should not be performed with a rod... Nor should it be with a headband, which some husbands use. Or with a sharp object, which, I'm sad to say, some husbands use. It should be done with something like the sewak tooth-cleaning twig... Or with a handkerchief, because the goal is merely to make the wife feel that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.
Ah, so pretty much as you would do with a dog. When a dog is disobedient, you might give him a good smack on the nose. When PETA isn't looking, that is. Or if you've never heard of clicker training and generally suck with animals. Apparently, in Islam, the same treatment can be applied to a wife. But only if she deserves it. Unlike Fido, no one is advocating for Mrs. Ahmed.
Sure, this video tries to tone down the abuse. If you feminists out there are saying "well, they are advocating for gentler beatings," then you're all horrible human beings. Harm yourself. Because this therapist is advocating the degradation of women. The guy instructing it is a freaking therapist. We cannot make this stuff up. This is what we mean when we say there's no such thing as a "moderate" Muslim ("Moderate" Islam is a Myth! Here's Why...). Islam, even in its gentlest form, seeks to dominate and subdue. In this case, a wife who totally deserved it (according to Islam).
