    :mad:

    It is on an arabic tv station. At least they don't consider the beatings on wives to be worse than the beatings of animals

    Below is another video on an arabic tv station how to beat your wife.

    Below is the interview of a woman who spoke about not being happy about wife beatings in Islam and killing the people who didn't believe like they did.

    Before everyone gets all superior over this pause for a moment. In English common law a woman was the property of her husband. In my state here in Australia the last wife auction - yes, we had wife auctions - was held in the late 19th Century.

    The Alex Castles mentioned in this piece was a senior law lecturer at Adelaide University and a brilliant legal mind.

    Of course domestic violence should be a crime and unfortunately it is still tolerated - officially - in some countries and it's unofficially tolerated in many others.

    But it isn't the province of any single region or religion.

    I'm sorry, you must have completely misunderstood my posting.

    Maybe you didn't see this line:

    Of course domestic violence should be a crime and unfortunately it is still tolerated - officially - in some countries and it's unofficially tolerated in many others.

    or this:

    But it isn't the province of any single region or religion.

    Saudi Arabia and Egypt aren't known for their progressive culture when it comes to social relations. I think "mediaeval" suits them nicely.

    In the final part of his book "Islam", Alfred Guillaume discusses the crossroads that the Islamic world found itself in when he was writing his book (1954). This was before Nasser in Egypt and the whole Suez Canal debacle. Guillaume said then that Islam faced a dichotomy between conservatism and progressivism in the religion. He suggested that the West should engage with those countries which could foster a progressive, modernising form of Islam and try to persuade them to assist in reducing the conservative tendency which could prove problematic for the West. Did we? No, we just wanted the oil so we did sod-all about it for years.

    Saudi Arabia is controlled by a family of Wahabbist dictators, I'm not at all surprised that they interpret the Qu'ran and any other texts in the manner that suits their dictatorial, despicable tendencies.

    Yes, people with a conservative world view will interpret their holy texts so as to support that world view. They will either ignore or distort the parts of the texts which state that women are equal to men and will instead use some form of twisted exegesis to support their culturally defined patriarchial views.

    It is not to be excused.
