A recent video that was posted on Facebook, shows a middle eastern man beating a woman believed to be his wife, in front of their daughter and onlookers. The unmerciful beating occurred after the woman attempted to sing along with the man as he was entertaining his guest.
Several comments that were posted, thought it was funny that the woman was beaten. Others attempted to make excuses for the abuser and blame cultural or religious freedom
Shlomi Michnik commented:
This is an old video … and show only the end of the video … nice Arab warned twice before he began his educational workshop
Many of the comments that approved of this type of treatment towards women, came from followers of Islam. They said it was their “God given right to beat their wives if they do not obey them”
Sura 4:34 in the Quran indeed permits husbands to hit their wives:
4:34 Husbands should take full care of their wives, with [the bounties] God has given to some more than others and with what they spend out of their own money. Righteous wives are devout and guard what God would have them guard in the husbands’ absence. If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great.
This is the religion that President Obama praises as the religion of peace. He is quick to defend Islam against anyone who disagrees with its doctrine or points out it’s brutal nature . In his book; Audacity of Hope, the President says: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
President Obama claims to care about the rights of the oppressed, and calls himself the champion of women’s rights. Well I ask, where is the outrage from the President? Why is it he will not publicly denounce the Muslim culture of violence towards women? This is the same President who said: “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
Where are the liberal women’s rights groups? They were quick to attack Mitt Romney and call him a misogynist,when he mentioned having a “binder full of women” during a debate in the 2012 elections. Yet they failed to come to the defense of Sarah Palin, when David Letterman made a statutory rape joke about her 14 year old daughter.
Sandra Fluke the self appointed spokeswomen for women’s rights , shows how much of a hypocrite she is by ignoring real issues, like; domestic violence toward women, caning,stoning and public humiliation of Muslim women, female genital mutilations and public attacks against all women, not just the selected few.
De Ann De Chellis a mother of three and woman’s advocate and conservative blogger, asked;
where are all the women supposedly fighting for women and their causes? Is it because they really don’t care about women? Only about stirring up emotions on their fake issue to further their agenda. This is the real war on women and these “ladies” willing to stand outside the SCOTUS wearing a vagina costume are nowhere to be found on these atrocities.
These types of autocracies are ignored by liberal groups, because they do not fit their narrative. The real advocates for the war on women are silenced or ignored because they represent the true women’s issues.
Liberals have ignored women’s rights, so they could promote their false narrative of “the war on women.” In their eyes, the war only exist, if you oppose the “right” to free, taxpayer-subsidized abortions and contraception. But what else would you expect from these elitist who are represented by, planned parenthood, a group who’s founder believed in ethnic cleansing and Bill Clinton, a womanizer and rapist.
