‘A husband should beat his wife so long as it does not make her ugly’: PA Mufti

A Palestinian leader has given tips for dealing with a rocky marriage – which includes a husband beating their wife ‘so long as it does not make them ugly’.

Hassan al-Laham, who holds the title of ‘mufti [legal expert] of Gaza’, was speaking on official Palestinian Authority TV.

He detailed what steps a husband ought to take to try and prevent a divorce, which included hitting their wife ‘jokingly’.

    Swedish feminists will have no problem with any of this.

    • Heck they’ll sing its praises;)

        Its a good thing Trudeau’s imam in Peterborough is a moderate. He only believes that women should stay at home and have sex.

      and not only Swedish. did you hear a pip from other feminists? Oh, yes we did; about the white men’s rape culture.

    I wonder if Heather Mallick at the Toronto Star agrees with this. She already thinks muslim women wearing bags over their heads is a great victory for feminism.

    • Surele Surele

      is she wearing one?

    Nobody has thought of putting together a weekly “Spitting Image” style tv comedy show featuring musloonie puppet characters doing the real unvarnished dialogue from the usual suspects?
    Cheap, hilarious, Bet sponsors would be fighting each other for commercial slots.

    What an incongruous name. Hassan al-Laham translates literally as Phillip the Meat which might be some hick reference to a butcher (Which is jazarroun to the literate).

    • Or to the fact he’s a meat head;)

        Meat heads wear red berets.

      Or ever. I was wondering about the whole “make her ugly” thing. I mean, when one considers the starting point … Woof Woof

        Where is North Burnaby, I assume it is in England

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          No, its a suburb of Vancouver BC.

  • Okay- where are the feminists?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Cowering in silent fear perhaps. Hands up everyone who doesn’t wonder sometimes if that horrible hag Rebick and her ilk don’t realize in the wee hours that they’ve unleashed a monster which will eventually put them in a bag (good for the rest of us in Judy’s case for sure) and fit them out with an fgm for good measure. Sometimes I wonder

    I guess Wynne is safe from being beaten. She’s already ugly.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      And what man would have her? Even a muzzie with *their* standards.
