It’s The JOOS Fault!

Posted by DJM on January 25, 2010

A new Lancet study claims Palestinian men are beating their wives because of Israel.

I kid you not.

They are blaming domestic violence in an Islamic society on Jews. Certainly, it wouldn’t have anything to do with this:

“Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” (Quran 4:34)

And it certainly couldn’t have anything to do with countless accounts in the Hadith in which Muhammad approved of, or turned a blind at, his followers beating their wives. It is very unlikely that it has anything to do with Islam’s perfect example himself beating his own wife.

And it doesn’t matter that these findings directly conflict with this extensive study.

No.

It’s the JOOS fault.
