Sharia Law and marital relations!
In light of the 28-pages of the September 11 report that have never been released and that reportedly cover Saudi Arabia's involvement with the events that occurred on and before September 11, 2001, the video in this article of a Saudi therapist discussing the 'proper way' for a husband to beat his wife is culturally illuminating for those who may be unaware.
And, it serves as a stark reminder that the belief system of this 'ally' of the United States likely makes it virtually impossible for the Saudi’s to actually be a reliable one!
The article and video below originated at the blog of Professor Jonathan Turley who is a nationally recognized legal scholar. Professor Turley has written extensively in areas ranging from constitutional law to legal theory to tort law.
Saudi Family Therapist Explains The Islamically Correct Method Of Wife Beating
At times Saudi Arabia and its medieval Sharia system seems a bad parody of itself. That is the case with this video of a leading Saudi family therapist inexplicably sitting on a chair in the middle of the forest discussing calmly the Islamically correct way of beating your wife. What is even more unnerving is this guy, Khaled Al-Saqaby, is not only viewed as sane and learned but is probably viewed as a moderate on the subject.
Al-Saqaby explains with obvious understanding and patience that men will face this problem because women will “undoubtedly” cause problems since many “want to live a life of equality with their husbands.” Silly wives.
He then moves to the methods of necessary discipline, starting with a stern talking to “to remind her of your rights and of her duties according to Allah” and then a decision to “forsake them in bed.” You can move from there to the beatings though he admits it is a “thorny” issue but “Allah willing, we will cross this bridge safely” — which I assume is a reference to the men.
He cautions that “the beating should not be performed with a rod, nor should it be a headband, or a sharp object.” He prefers a “tooth-cleaning twig or with a handkerchief’ to beat a wife and to beat them only until she “feels that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.”
