    oh, my God. I thought this headline was a joke. What sucks is that this kind of idiocy gets associated with Islam, which is not so friggin` backwards.

    We`ll all play the "Islam`s religion teaches this and is so bad" but I have the sudden urge to make the same exact video but with Christianity instead. And while we`re not playing videos on how to beat your woman, I am sure there are sermons and teachings where it is covered.

    People say how scary Islam is, yet look at all the effed up poo Christianity can do. Honestly I think both religions are the same.

    RELIGION IS GREAT! I think muslim disgusts me a little more than christianity though. At least christianity changes what god is supposed to have said every once in a while so it`s never quite as sadistic to be a christian when times change to shun things. Hell, if it didn`t change, we would still be stabbing women in the uterus with swords if they got pregnant out of wedlock as god supposedly originally commanded!

    from this video of some random saudiu guy. He makes assumptions of it being about Islam, and how all of Islam beat their wives.
    He then goes on to say that christians preach domestic violence.
    Then he says that christianity does some drated up poo, but islam is just as bad.
    so thats why are7era is racist.

    Pockets of the extremists? This is being broadcast on drating TV. Even if you are right, and in where ever this is being broadcast, the majority of men would never beat their wives, it is still obviously something that`s okay to talk about on TV in their eyes! That`s disgusting enough!

    I hate that this is the image we are forced to swallow of what these people believe.
    We get all the negative over here.

    I can`t believe that people even need to discuss the beating of their wives. It should not be done at all. And the beating of children, slapping them left and right, that`s just ridiculous.

    I wish I could just shake some of these people.
    Enlighten them.

    No he didn`t, learn to read.

    "Then he says that christianity does some drated up poo, but islam is just as bad."

    This is true, but even if you don`t agree that it`s true, it still has nothing to do with racism.

    It`s the same kind of situations as those Mormon camps. If you`re raised to believe that the man is *always* right and is superior to any woman, then beatings, rape, etc isn`t too shocking. If you`re looking at it as an outsider not raised in that, it`s horrible and crude and barbaric. So it all depends on how you`re raised.

    Violence isn`t right, and I don`t condone his message, but I`m finding it funny how people are so outraged about how he can speak about it so calmly. Because he was trained to believe it`s perfectly fine. Doesn`t make it fine for American culture, but it`s acceptable in his. And, fortunately or unfortunately, American culture is not the dominant culture of the world.

    Talk about drating cop-out tactics. The fact that I said "learn to read" twice doesn`t make the entire rest of my post any less accurate and you know it.

    I wonder what his doctorate is in...

    Seriously, though, I don`t see the big deal. It`s terrible he`s condoning beating women, but he`s preaching that one shouldn`t leave permanent damage, which seems to be a humanitarian step forward from the "beat them until you feel like stopping" policy. That`s more than I can vouch for in a lot of American homes.

    Kikij,

    You do realize that the comment said, "Saudi" refering to Saudi Arabia, not the person`s religion. Madest`s comment, "if he`s married to a saudi it`s too late for that.", was racist, or more accurately, regionist but racist is close enough given what the average person knows about that region.

    Is this recent?

    Doesn’t matter.

    Unfortunately, we live in a society where we judge the many by the few

    But you must realize that you could also pick out the bad partsof other religions

    But what shams me even more, even more than the fact that all clerics are bad speaks and Ahmadiejad’s a terrible speaker….even more that there are so many bad interpretations and that here are more than a few Muslim scholars that are pow- ah screw that this has nothing to do it.

    The point is we are a society that judge the many by the few and are prone to group a bunch of similar but different things together….ie stereotyping.


    all man is curupt, therefore all religion is currupt

    How do we know that`s really what they`re talking about and not someone`s idea of a joke? Yeah, I see a box crediting translation in the top-left corner but is that authentic?

    If this is real, it has nothing to do with religion as far as I`m concerned. Only a dispicable, cowardly, cruel and heartless man would beat his wife for ANY reason; all those traits transcend race and religion and that`s that.

    “The king has come.” Those were the last and only words of Gabriel before he left. “The king has come.” As if those few words held any meaning to him, which they did not.

    I agree, I speak Iranian no Arab. (Unfortunetly, I have come to learn that I probably wont have to look at Ahmadinejad’s lips as he’s being translated. Clerics=bad speakers. Did you see him on Larry King? Terrible)

    But yes, having a true blue translation may be needed. Hey, they had a South Park episode where they made it look like Osama watches FG. Is it real? Of course not

    >>this cant be real!

    It`s real. I usually side with the liberals on most things, but Islam is way more f-dup than any of the seem to realize. This is just the tip of the iceberg, an iceberg made of frozen stink.

    There`s kind of a difference. In America, a wife-beater is considered a pile of poo and would be put in jail, this video is showing people who think that the practice is acceptable.

    *sigh*

    People, people, people. This really has nothing to do with religion, apart from the fact that it is a cleric talking about it. Christianity doesn`t say to beat your wife, if anything the opposite, saying respect and whatnot, as does the Koran.

    It is a culture thing, nothing more. Not that, that is any excuse at all.

    Killing them softly, it makes perfect sense. And yes, you want to beat your children the way you beat animals, but women, no you don`t want to mess up the parts you have to look at. So you take a rattan cane to the bottoms of their feet. This is why they Feared Hillary Clinton.

    Silver:
    Technically the rule is you`re not allowed to beat your wife with anything more than a "toothbrush" or "folded hanky". Not your bare hands.

    Kids can be spanked with bare hands.

    The whole point is that there are limitations, which you`ve completely flipped around. What are the limitations in Christianity? Atheism? Oh wait, none, so I guess that means this is ok over there huh:

    Looky a picture n everything. Your entire society sucks.

    It`s a culture thing. If you`re outraged, look at your own culture, oh at the most, 200 years ago. Did your culture have slaves? OHMYGOSH! Why yes, you probably did. 200 years, isn`t that much. Go figure.

    Looking down upon a culture is just ignorant. Get over it.

    Opie has a wife?!?

    No, really. This is culture, not religion. Islam is a very pro-woman rights religion. They granted divorce, property, and inheritance rights far before the other Abrahamic religions.

    And just because this guy is on tv doesn`t mean he isn`t a small minority. We`ve seen the crazy stuff Rev. Wright said on tv, but that doesn`t mean we all agree with him. For all we know, this clip was mistranslated or in context with a program condemning what was said.

    -_- My, my, my. How we jump to conclusions.

    First off, stop acting like you only have the choice between the CHRISTIAN WAY and the ISLAMIC WAY. You KNOW there is more to it than that.

    The main thing is... wifey gets beaten, kids can get beaten, BUT THE HUSBAND NEVER DOES, DOES HE?

    In other words boys and girls, the women and kids are beneath the man, and he in actuallity can do anything he wants. We in western society DO actually have laws to try and even things out, even if it does not work perfectly.

    So, stop harping like whiny idiots about how naughty the west is when you watch a video about how to beat your wife in the middle east, `k?

    You`re not allowed to hit children in Islam unless they don`t read the Quran, and even then nothing more that a few slaps to discipline. You can only beat your wife if she`s having an affair and you`ve warned her several times but she still refuses to stop, and you don`t want to divorce her. If you divorce her it`s your job to keep her in the house and give her food for 3 months, and then she can marry whoever. The 3 month rule made sense back in the day because you couldn`t always tell if a woman was pregnant before, plus if it took time to sort out living arrangements for her

    A very primitive culture. A culture that still gives into the notion of power for the few. No democracy for the people. Inherited political power. Man over woman with crude dominance. No one allowed to drink alcohol unless of course you one of the leaders in the palaces in which case all pleasures are yours including multiple wives and servants. To think they only had spitting camels and no toilet paper 60 years ago and now that shell has pumped up the oil they happened to be sitting on find themselves obscenely rich, free to indulge their trivial desires and whims. A unique happenstance in human history. The self importance of the clowns in this video speak very ill to the rest of the world about their society.

    Oh, and look up the definition of the word "rights" I think it has something to do with POWER... which is what someone who beats on someone else DEFINITELY HAS.

    Baalthazaq;

    Don`t tout the inferiority of western philosophy until you`ve convinced your fellows in Islam to stop killing each other with stones. Your vapid ad hominem attacks are a feeble attempt to validate an archaic and pedestrian system of subjugation and social enslavement. Where do Honor Killings fit in the hierarchy of Islamic Rule? No to my knowledge there isn`t a standard in Christianity regarding "how to Beat Your Wife" Largely because it`s understood that you Just Don`t Do It. No need for a divine directive, it`s a matter of common sense.

    The problem with these people is that their idea of a Utopian society is the the 8th century C.E. If that`s where they`re aiming, how are they going to shoot any higher? Islam needs to have a modernizing social revolution, but all the sane Muslims will be killed by barbarous pigs like the man in the video if they speak out. It`s a bit of a catch 22.

    "At least christianity changes what god is supposed to have said every once in a while so it`s never quite as sadistic to be a christian when times change to shun things. "

    It`s true... though the people who change it often get killed, it definitely changes with time or it would be seen as nearly insane.

    It`s ironic how so many of you are outraged at the thought of beating a woman or child or even animal, but when it comes to abortion, very few people protest the idea of ripping a live child into peices for the convenience of the mother. Just a different form of abuse, really. Oh, wait, its actually murder. But that`s acceptable in American, Christian society- we`re so much more humane that other cultures, we don`t beat anyone, we just kill them before they`re born if we feel like it. (for those of you who are going to say the fetus us part of the womans body, then why is a murder charged with 2 deaths if he kills a pregnant woman? Beating heart= human being). If your going to be defensive about human rights, don`t forget unborn humans.

    blackbird, you act as if every other woman in America or other westernized societies has had an abortion, but in fact the number is rather low compared to other regions of the world (Global Abortion Rates Worldwide Abortion Rates to cite a couple of sources). The main problem with this video is that it is an entirely different culture that many people aren`t used to. Muslim and Arab people still have abortions, just like everyone else, the people here are objecting to this kind of cruelty against anyone. And as for the part about killing a pregnant woman being 2 murders, my opinion on that is a woman should have the right to control something that is in her body, but no one else can say what she

    neilyo, you do have a point- I am very thankful for the healthcare system in the US and that many women are saved each year. It is also great to hear that abortion rates have dropped. But I still know many people who think of abortion very casually, like `Oops, I got pregnant, no big deal I`ll just get rid of it`. I think it would be better to widely encourage adoption as an option. But it is a complex problem without easy answers- I just want people to be aware that no matter what the situation/country/percentages/reasons, abortion is killing and so women should consider that. As far as it being the woman`s choice, once the kid is born it doesn`t have capability to live on its own, so is it still her choice? What if she decides at age 2 she can`t take it- is it ok to kill the kid? Just think about it...

    sorry, what I mean to say there at the end is that the child is separate being, even if it is dependent on the mother or inside of her, it is NOT part of the woman`s body, but instead a separate person. (think of siamese twins- its not ok for one to kill the other, even if they are attached. Weird example, but similar if think of it)

    wait wait... if abortion is murder then isnt killing an insect or any other thing murder too. people dont think twice about killing spiders because they are scared of them, but yet if a mother wants an abortion its a different story. I dont understand how it makes a difference what the thing is that got killed, killing is murder.

    As for the "common sense" answer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_vi...

    It seems 22% of women are abused in the states. Whilst that might tie in to quite how much common sense there is in the states, I doubt it.

    Wow... I watched this plus a few more videos by the same cleric. No wonder westerners look at Muslims with the eyes they do.... I am not saying that all Muslims are that backward, and in fact I have met quite a few forward thinking ones... however beating a woman? assuming that all western women are loose or immoral because some refuse to name the father on the child birth certificate? or that we have no morals because we aren`t all Muslim? Perhaps this can be said the same of fundamentalist christians as well...
    All the same, we have a lot of work to do in regard to making peace with the muslims
