‘Beat her in a way that doesn’t turn her skin red’: Islamic preacher tells Sydney mosque audience it’s OK for a husband to bash his wife

This is everyday Islam.

A visiting Islamic preacher from Iran told a Sydney mosque it is okay for a husband to beat his wife as long as he doesn’t leave any red marks.

Sheikh Taleb al-Khozaei, a Shia cleric aligned with the Iranian theocracy, was a guest lecturer at the Hussainayet Ale Yassin Mosque at Sefton, in Sydney’s west.

In an Arabic language sermon, he said it was permissible for husbands to lightly beat their wives ‘as a last resort’ if they had been disobedient.

The western Sydney mosque which organised the visit has condemned that sermon promoting domestic violence and has vowed to bar him from returning.

    Well, that is a story you won’t see in the Toronto Star. Another victory for Western feminism.

    He needs a good beating.

      Until they’re black and blue all over.

  • “Beat Her In A Way That Doesn’t Turn Her Skin Red”

    Hell that should be easy enough. Professional torturers perfected that method decades ago to hide the fact that people are being tortured. The only thing Muslims have to do is put in a call to Kim Jong Un and he’ll explain to the men how to do it. He did a fabulous job on Otto.

    Get used to it; this is Islam. Yes, the very same Islam that the West opened its doors to and they remain wide open.

      No Christian church would be allowed to get away with this type of sermon. There would be weeks of press coverage, and reviews of historical child molestation by priests and ministers. Dual standards here.

      • Alain

        You’re right. Even just the claim that there had been such a sermon would suffice.

      • Definitely would get their tax-deductible status revoked in a jiffy.

    “In an Arabic language sermon…”
    Expect that a detailed investigation will be made into which arabic speaker leaked the contents of the speech to the kuffar. And when they find them there might be accusations of blasphemy as well as accusations of betraying the ummah.

    It all makes sense now… No wonder mudslime women wear a burqa/niqab to hide the injuries they sustained from islamic “discipline”….

    The two women in the head gear would have made a great Monty Python sketch. Eric Idle and Michael Palin in drag would have been a scream. But laughing is not allowed today especially when it concerns muslims.
