Kuwaiti Sheikh Othman Al-Khamis: How To Properly Beat Your Wife

This is quite a recent lecture, delivered on January 31, 2017 by an accepted Islamic authority.  The ideas presented here are not the hysterical rantings of some extremist who is not really a Muslim.  Far from that, the sheikh calmly cites the specific Quranic scripture which authorizes Muslim men to beat their disobedient wives.

Of course, this kind of rhetoric is centuries old.  So is the Muslim practice of beating one’s spouse who does not please him.  These are not controversial ideas in the World of Islam.  They are common accepted practice.  The wife-beating material, along with a lot more information about Muslim violence directed at females, has been presented for public education in Western Civilization – in books and videos – countless times – by many, many present-day authorities on mainstream Islam.

Mainstream Islam.  Not some kooky, radical version of Islam that perverts and hijacks the real Islam for non-Islamic purposes.

Remember that?

But, look.  Back to beating one’s wife.  This is it.  This is Islam, as real as it gets.

So, I ask you:  What’s the problem?  How much clearer can it be?  Why can not our educated Western political and military leaders grasp these simple, basic misogynistic Islamic concepts as easily as every Muslim grasps them?

What is the problem?  Knock knock.  Hello?  I can’t hear you.  What is the problem?

Thanks to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and Winds of Jihad for the video link.  The complete accompanying explanatory essay is here.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
