Wife-Beating 101 Taken to Court

Regular readers of Counterjihad sites are familiar with Koran 4:34, which lays out the strict rules for beating one’s wife. Now the matter has been brought to court in Switzerland, after a man publicly declared his Koran-inspired views on spousal abuse in a TV documentary.

Many thanks to Hermes for translating this article from Donaufalter-Zeitung:

If the man needs sex, he is allowed to beat his wife

Islamist from Basel has the right to say such thing openly, court of justice ruled.

Aziz Osmanoglu, 36, the secretary of the Muslim community in Basel lives in strict accordance with the Koran. “I stand by it entirely. I regret nothing of what I said at that time”. He stood trial again.

In the documentary from the SF1 channel called “behind the veil”, Aziz Osmanoglu was one of the chief characters. There he explained to the viewers:

“A (Muslim) man needs sex, that’s why in extreme cases he is allowed to beat his wife if she refuses. If he did not do that, then the man would look for another partner, and this is not acceptable in Islam”

He finds whipping or cutting off hands a proper punishment for thieves. “I would willingly stand for Sharia”, he said additionally in an interview. What does he have the stomach for? Many from the audience shook their heads.

The reaction from the public prosecutor’s office:

Osmanoglu was denounced for “public instigation to crime and violence”. The Muslim was at first instance released by the court.

But the issue went ahead in the court of appeal.

During yesterday’s trial, the judge stated that “the declarations of the accused are clear instigations to violence. And as the secretary of a Muslim organization, he has a great capability of influencing others.”

Osmanoglu denied the charges. He wanted to overcome the preconceptions about the Muslims, and not call for violence. People have picked out the statements from the whole context of the documentary, and he did nothing unlawful.

The president of the court, Claudius Gelzer, judged the declarations of Osmanoglu as censurable: “violence against women is strongly deserving of condemnation; these declarations are neither morally nor ethically right.”

In spite of this, Osmanoglu was once again released because he did not call directly for anyone to behave like that.

Sharia lives. Among us. How does one say it? Be welcome?

For were he to take on a mistress or two in addition to his wife, the level of abuse that he could inflict on each women would decline.

A man takes a wife; he oppresses her; she learns to revile her sex. But if he take a mistress, then he must abuse her as well, and the level of abuse taken by each woman declines severely. Then the mistress, saucy minx, starts denying sex, too! He has to find another mistress and oppress her, so that now each woman is getting only 1/3 of the misogyny of which the husband is capable. This goes on till the husband, trying to cow several women whilst still getting those five prayers in, grows so exhausted that he can hardly raise his voice to tell his women just how satanic they are.

Soon the women receive such little chauvinism that they start forming flighty ideas about equality between the sexes. They start speaking without being prompted, go galavanting outside without a male escort, even, whisper it quietly, stripping away the burkas and hijabs in which their filthy feminine forms are entombed. I can imagine them now, their vile nude bodies clogging the streets, their chirpy little siren voices calling all the men to horrific vice!

No, better the man correct his deviant wife with his Allah-crafted hands (and squeeze in the occasional infidel rape, natch) than look for another partner.

I suppose it depends on exactly what he said, because freedom of speech allows us to state that a law be changed, but not that it may be flouted.
In other words, you may say: "The law should allow a man to beat his wife." (I wouldn't agree with you, but you are entitled to say it.)
But if you say: "Go ahead and beat your wife", you are guilty of incitement to lawbreaking.

I repeat: the long-lasting rainbow is about to be broken!
Some may have recognized, that there is a war, a war, a war. Everything is in charge of every-damn-thing. Me myself, I dream of boring slowjams on a midwinters grey afternoon, in a room, a room of my own!
I defeat that rainbow, now, as we speak -we do, trust me!- I repeat it all over again, in front of that mirror, that stood there to long.
My Name is Bug-Alljoh, I change my ways, as long as you give me something pure.
