Re; My thoughts

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Justification for wife beating.... nice.

Submitted by A Muslim (United States), Sep 29, 2006 at 10:36

I am a muslim woman and an educated one! and i still believe that 'the wife beating" idea as described and explained in my earlier comment is fine. In the east people do not go to shrinks for all their problems, there is a family structure - their parents etc, that can be counseled in these situations.

Also, not all muslim men want to oppress women, only the illiterate ones do that. Also, west has a much higher rate of domestic abuse, and divorce rate and other evils. Who are we living in the west to judge men of the east? I would highly suggest that you guys try and live with a family in the east and observe their interaction. Shed the hatred that you have developed for these people due to your ignorance or due to the biased media you have in this country.

If you guys feel that Quran is such an evil book, then make an effort and try and read it. This way you may be able to make more informed judgements.
