Saudi Women Beaten W/Sticks and Sharp Objects, by Fathers, Brothers and Sons for “Religious Motives”

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


One reason on insisting that women wear the Niqab that covers even their faces and stay at home is so no one else can see the black eyes and bruises.

Nearly half Saudi women are beaten up by their husbands or other family members at home and many of them are hit by sticks and head cover, according to a university study published in local newspapers on Tuesday.

“The study showed that nearly half those covered by social security and more than a third of the female students at the university are beaten up at home,” Dr Lateefa said, quoted by the Saudi Arabic language daily Almadina.

“Husbands were found to be beating their wives more than others….they are followed by fathers, then brothers then sons…hands and sticks were found to be used mostly in beating women, following by men’s head cover and to a lesser extent, sharp objects.”

The study found that the main reasons for violence against women include poor religious motives, drug addiction and alcoholism, arrogance and a tendency to control,  psychological problems, poverty, and unemployment.

The study concludes that Saudi women are beaten their lives, by their parents, then by their husbands and eventually by their sons.

Islam’s prophet, Mohammed reportedly said, “I was shown the Hellfire and that the majority of its dwellers are women.” Arguably the true majority of it may be Saudi Muslim men.

    apparently it's OK if non-christian, non-white, non-atheist, non not-Muslim brown people abuse women because "it's part of their religion".

    • JacksonPearson

      Any religion etc, that says it'd okay to beat, or abuse a woman, is immoral. Notice, that most always, it's a woman that's being stoned to death in the Middle East, and never men.

    This violence is totally upheld by Islamic Sharia Law, like it or not. Their lust for blood is boundless, especially towards "infidels" and fellow Muslims who are deemed "impure". This is a fact – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/13/muslim-blood-

    A violent scourge against humanity.

    Don't human rights only apply to humans?

    Unfortunately, even in the US, violence against women seems "too high": 25% severe physical violence, 20% rape, etc. What might be different is the frequency; while Saudi women experience it all their lives, it is far less so here. I just wish I could point my finger at them and say "we don't do that" but we do. At least their's a "study" on it, so perhaps they are starting to address the issue internally on their own. Maybe in 40 years, after all the old hard-liner imams kick the bucket, things will actually be different there.

    I hope.

    In the mean time, all of these statistics are a sobering reminder of just how far we haven't progressed.

      We're far from perfect. What realistic suggestions do you have? As far as I know, my time is best spent refuting Islamic ideology. That will have the best payoff in progress if we accept fundamental Western democratic values.

    What statistics?
    Casually tossing in "25%" here and "20%" without specifying what constitutes the 100% is statistics?

      He said they were statistics, not facts. I think he meant any life time experiences put you in those victim classes. Fair enough but I'm still not sure it's true but it might be. But it also depends on how we track such events.

      Women have better lives in the West than any other time and place in history…though the trend is being reversed in some areas depending on cultural influence. Thanks to who? If there is anything holding back true progress, it's progressives (leftists) and their delusional ideas.

        "He said they were statistics, not facts. I think he meant any life time experiences put you in those victim classes."

        "Any life experience"?
        I would assume that being a woman is a rather common "life experience" of about 50% of the American population. If he maintains that 25% of American woman experience "severe physical violence" and 20% percent experience rape then I think the person should make an effort to back it up with reliable sources.

          I don't disagree, I was being a bit sarcastic. I think you're asking the right questions.

            It seems I was being a bit obtuse and missed the sarcasm. Sorry.

            " I think you're asking the right questions. "
            I'm glad you agree with me.

            Cheers,

    A few minutes in the ring with Chuck Norris' wife, Gena, would cure what's wrong with this cowardly, misogynist b—–d. When they pull him from the floor, they could make him clean windows on the Burj Khalifa, 150 stories up.

    They beat women because they are to cowardly to beat males. They are a sick bunch of animals.

      "They beat women because they are to cowardly to beat males. They are a sick bunch of animals."

      And there's no cultural shame in doing so. Thank Mo.
