Why do Palestinian men beat their wives?

by Lurker

Why, because of Israel, of course. (Duh.)

And by contrast, we can now understand why women are treated with such decency and respect throughout the rest of the Arab and Muslim world...

[Hat-tip: Jameel]

Update from Robert:

Gee, I must be an ignoramus. I thought those men watching their imams spouting off about Quran 4:34 had more of an influence. No doubt the PA-financed, rabid Leftist study examined this issue and found it irrelevant.

"Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely Allah is high, supreme." (Dawood's translation)

And here's a website that analyzes the verse and cites 6 different translations.

My favorite of the six translations is the one that replaces "beat them" with "beat them (lightly)".

That one must be from the ArtScroll Koran. I imagine that it also has a note in the commentary, explaining that "The reason why God commands us to beat women is that women are on a higher spiritual level than men."

Commenter Abbi said...

Duh, Lurker, if Arab women are on such a high spiritual level, if the men didn't beat them, they would float away!

Hey Lurker, you had better be careful. People might be calling Judaica stores right now for their copy of the Artscroll Koran because of irresponsible cooments like yours ;)

This is the year 2010, not 210 right? And this is what passes for science?!!! You know what they say--if it smells like s--t and looks like s--t then it must be s--t, except of course to some so called researchers and their payers.

That first comment is disgustingly misogynistic. I'm no longer reading your blog until you erase that comment.

I never cease to be amazed by people such as yourself who are unable (or unwilling) to distinguish between detestable behavior and satire of detestable behavior.

You sound like one of those people who tries to get Huckleberry Finn banned from libraries for racism.

-brings to mind the birchot hashachar morning tefilah "shelo asani isha"
--'because women are 'so much higher in spirituality and thus closer to Hashem, and don't need all these mitzvot shehazman graman, and blah, blah, etc.' (--le'havdil, of course).

I felt bad that Anonymous said he would stop reading the blog because of my comment, so I deleted it on my own.

And to avoid offending people, I have asked for all copies of my book Huckleberry Finn to be removed from all library shelves.

Why do arabs beat their wives?

for the same reason a dog licks his d-ck.
Because he can

This thread seems to be taking a convoluted turn; the road not taken...

Not only did I not write this comment, but I also find it very offensive.

It's actually a widespread problem throughout the Arab world. See how
confusion amongst the men can cause so many issues. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/01/28/afghan-men-struggle-sexual-identity-study-finds/
