    UAE High Court Rules Men Can Beat Wives, Young Children if there are no visible marks

    Monday, October 18th 2010, 8:59 AM

    The UAE's highest judicial body says a man can beat his wife and young children as long as the beating leaves no physical marks. It's perfectly legal for a man to beat his wife and young children in the United Arab Emirates, as long as the assault leaves no physical marks, the country's highest court ruled.

    Citing Islamic law, the Federal Supreme Court made the decision earlier this month in its ruling on a case of a man who slapped and kicked his daughter and slapped his wife, Abu Dhabi's The National reported Monday.

    I just don't think it's right that Arab men think it's cool to beat women and children

    There are plenty of Arab and non Arab men in this country that beat women and children. What happens in an Arab country is non of our "homeland" concern unless it is an impending attack on the USA.

    If you think that Christians don't beat children you are stupid or a liar to yourself. Both of my younger brothers were beaten by the local preacher and a religious zealot public school teacher where we lived up on Orcas Island for not conforming to public prayer. I had left the Island just previous to the beatings and wasn't told about them for fear I would go back and take revenge. They never had the guts to even threaten me although I openly laughed at their demands to participate. I was a happy kid but did not suffer morons telling me what to do and gave them good reason not to. My brothers were not so direct and assertive.

    Piss on all religions.

    The point is this is in the wrong Forum bud.

    The Story is not surprising at all. That is what you get when Sharia is the law of the land.

    You seem to be missing the point here sir. Nobody denies Christians beat their kids and wives too. The point to this story is that the UAE is making it legal for them to do so. Something that is rather common in Islamic nations ruled by Sharia law.
