62% of Turkish Men Support Wife Beating


In entirely unrelated news, Turkey’s murder rate for women increased 1400% as the Islamist AKP party solidified its group on the formerly secular nation.

Islam has a notoriously progressive attitude toward women with Mohammed declaring that most of those in hell are women. And as Turkey has drifted closer to Islam, the treatment of women has grown uglier.

A survey of 3500 Turkish men conducted by the University of Kirikkale and the organisation “Happy Children” prove what is anyway a truism in Turkey: of course most Turkish men consider violence against women to be completely normal, sensible and practical.

28 per cent of those polled thought violence against spouses to be indispensable: it was needed to discipline them. 34 per cent were more moderate and thought violence against spouses was only “necessary” “occasionally”.

Wife-beating is part of Islamic law with specific instructions how and when to do it. There are Muslim wife beating manuals and clerics constantly lecturing on the right way to beat your wife. And all of it is there in the Koran and the Hadiths.

Abu Dawud (2142) – “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

Bukhari (72:715) – A woman came to Muhammad and begged her to stop her husband from beating her.  Her skin was bruised so badly that she it is described as being “greener” than the green veil she was wearing.  Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires.

And even the Koran’s version of the story of Job finds a way to get the wife beating in there.

“And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with It and do not break your oath; surely We found him patient; most excellent the servant! Surely he was frequent in returning (to Allah).” Qur’an (38:44)

And if that doesn’t work, the Muslim man can always kill her.

That 1400 percent increase in the murder rate? Very mysterious.

    "Wife-beating is part of Islamic law with specific instructions how and when to do it. There are Muslim wife beating manuals and clerics constantly lecturing on the right way to beat your wife. And all of it is there in the Koran and the Hadiths."

    That's how much care they have. They really want to get it right and debate endlessly about just how to beat their wives. Then again they put just as much effort in to deciding the optimal way to urinate.

    I guess the jury is still out. But at least it's a religion of peace and we know we can count on that.

    This is such and interesting subject that I find it impossible to understand just why it is not
    covered by a complete program of the View, surely Gamal Qutubby would enlighten the ladies
    as to the necessary discipline for wives. The gals would appear in burquas and bow and
    scrape……….keeping thier mouth shut while the genius of odious deportment educates.

      Why not have a cleric in to show how it's done exactly?

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Possibly Qutubby would appear on the show and beat a few in the proper way as
        and educational guide. I was wondering about the percentage of Turkish men
        who support wife beating, 62%, is that not the percentage of married Turkish men?
        The View could help wise up American married men and make thier lives so much
        more conformed to Islamist normalcy, one thing though, they are unaware of
        American wives like mine, beat my wife, ha, I would not survive…………..William

    It goes without saying, the Islamist-in-Chief's BFF in the Muslim world would be Islamist Turkey, headed by Erdogan. It also goes without saying that he felt it oh so "essential" for Bibi to "apologize" to said leader who surely believes that terrorists have many rights – to kill and to wife beat too, as do "average" Mohammed's!
    By the way, it is not just the "moderate' Turks who believe as such. Wife beating and many other "delicacies" are underpinned by Sharia law and this is the issue – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/21/repeat-until-

    Well. There's still the remaining 38%. Religion doesn't have to cloud positive judgement. I don't think this fact indicts Islam. I am sure there are 62% of certain Non-Muslims who aren't the most faithful.

      "I am sure there are 62% of certain Non-Muslims who aren't the most faithful."

      And that has what to do with openly supporting wife-beating as somehow legitimate? It seems like I've run in to this logical fallacy before…once in a while….almost every time I read troll comments.

      are you a muslim and so uneducated that you cant see how silly your defense of evil is, or are you not muslim, suicidally stupid, and unable to see how silly your defense of evil sounds? either way, you would fit right into the obama administration. hurry up and apply. i suspect you would make an excellent white house press secretary. when you get there, please ask obama the same question i am asking of you. i would really like to know if obama is muslim and thinks we are stupid, or nonmuslim, and really is stupid. if he is muslim, he is right. we really are stupid. we elected a muslim to enslave, then genocide us. incredible.

    "Educating" women… Are they marrying women or children? If they can't handle their woman without beating them, they must be very bad husbands, very limited, very frustrated men,who need to feel they are superior through the use of force. I am so blessed to live where I live, where this sort of simian behaviour is not allowed, and where my man and I have a healthy relationship, based on respect, love, friendship and a common goal, not based on fear. Those men should focus on educating themselves, not their wives.

    1,500 women are killed each year by husbands or boyfriends in U.S. About 2 million men per year beat their partners, according to the F.B.I.

      For which they are arrested, prosecuted and incarcerated. Is the same true of islamofascist Turkey?

      "1,500 women are killed each year by husbands or boyfriends in U.S. About 2 million men per year beat their partners, according to the F.B.I."

      Let me guess. Our society is imperfect and therefore we can't criticize communists or totalitarian religions? Or do you suppose all of the criminals are Muslims? What's your point after all?

      I know. Reduce any problem to the point that we no longer have distinctions and there is nothing to learn. Then join the campfire and sing Kumbaya and celebrate the end of civilization.

      Don't worry, according to communist theory a new Utopia will spring up just like new trees grow after forest fires. Well, if that new one is not perfect you just burn that to the ground too, but you can count on the "fact" that every time you destroy something, a better replacement comes along. It's like gravity.

    If the Turks can kill 1.5 million Armenians in cold blood it would not surprise me a bit that most of Turkish men believe wife beating is O.K.

    The sad part about muslim women is that they fight to protect that which oppresses them. They support being beaten, they defend child marriage, etc.. They're brainwashed.

      They are scared, they can die for not agreeing with their husbands. Once you control the matriarch this way, it's an easy ride.

    It is said that every day, in Europe, seven women die at the hands of their partner, husband or former husband. Seven women killed each day! This has to stop.! http://www.euronews.com/2013/02/08/fighting-viole

    62% of turkish men support wifebeating. sure. and 37.9% of turkish men practice taqiyya, the practice of lying to promote islam as allowed by the holy islamic scriptures. and 0.1% of turkish men are not muslims. yes. that adds up to 100%, although i am not so sure there are .1% that are not muslims. turkey has been very efficient in exterminating everyone that does not worship the god of evil, the merciful, and venerate the archcriminal prophet, peace be upon him.
