    Default Marriage Advice, Saudi Style

    Move over, Dr. Phil, there's a new relationship expert in town.

    He's Saudi author and cleric, "Dr." Muhammad Al-'Arifi, who in a remarkable segment broadcast on Saudi and Kuwaiti television in September, counseled young Muslim men on how to treat their wives.

    "Admonish them once, twice, three times, four times, ten times," he advised. "If this doesn't help, refuse to share their beds."

    And if that doesn't work?

    "Beat them," one of his three young advisees responded.

    "That's right," Al-'Arifi said.

    He goes on to calmly explain to the young men that hitting their future wives in the face is a no-no.

    "Beating in the face is forbidden, even when it comes to animals," he explained. "Even if you want your camel or donkey to start walking, you are not allowed to beat it in the face. If this is true for animals, it is all the more true when it comes to humans. So beatings should be light and not in the face."

    His final words of wisdom?

    "Woman, it has gone too far. I can't bear it anymore," he tells the men to tell their wives. "If he beats her, the beatings must be light and must not make her face ugly.

    "He must beat her where it will not leave marks. He should not beat her on the hand... He should beat her in some places where it will not cause any damage. He should not beat her like he would beat an animal or a child -- slapping them right and left.

    "Unfortunately, many husbands beat their wives only when they get mad, and when they start beating, it as if they are punching a wall they beat with their hands, right and left, and sometimes use their feet. Brother, it is a human being you are beating. This is forbidden. He must not do this."

    Take that, Match.com!

    Uhhh, I take it he's never seen these women before without their burkas. They've already been beaten with an ugly stick by God.

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Lorrrrrrrrrd...I'd NEVER make it in that country as a wife. The first time 'ol Stinky laid a hand on me I think I'd pull up my jilbab, show the red thong, smack my ass, give him a wink and say, "spank it like you mean it, baby"!

    My imagination just kicked into overdrive picturing that.

    Has it ever occurred to some of you that Memri.org makes some of this shit up, like that fake Mickey Mouse show they had a few months ago.

    The founders of MEMRI include David and Meryav Wuermser, who were principle architects of the PNAC manifesto and similar documents for the Likud government of Israel.

    And their partner Daniel "Crack" Pipes is a genocidal maniac whose "final solution" for Muslims is reminiscent of one that was proposed by a short guy with an ugly haircut and ridiculous mustache.

    Can you really trust people this biased (to put it mildly) to present an accurate picture of Muslim TV.

    You're probably right FORD (God, I can't believe I said that) J/K sort of

    I do have to tell you about a first hand account of how SOME of them actually treat their wives. I am speaking about one man that was witnessed and certainly not saying they all do this...

    My ex was in Saudi for Desert Storm and he said they were driving by this village where there were only women and children. (not sure where the men all were) The kids ran out to meet them and they always gave them candy and gum. Well the women came out too and one woman who was heavily pregnant did not have her veil on. They were all communicating as best they could and it was a pleasant encounter. Well, the men came back while they were there and one man (I am assuming it was her husband) proceeded to scream and yell at her and then in front of the soldiers started to beat and kick the shit out of her for not having her veil on. The soldiers were not able to do anything to help her and he beat her all the way back to their house. She actually fell and he dragged her by her hair. They were horrified by what they had witnessed and no one (not even the Saudi people) helped her. Personally, I find that no one helping her is totally chickenshit but I am an American so I don't know. He told me that the soldiers were not able to respond to domestic situations but I find it hard as a human being to be able to tolerate that kind of behavior from anyone. But they had orders so whatever. The American women soldiers had so many rules they were to follow too all about being covered up and such if they were outside. It was crazy. So there's my story.

    I'm not saying that Islamic fundies are going to win any husband of the year awards (except possibly from Playburqua magazine. Horrible centerfolds, don't bother reading)

    But trusting MEMRI on Islamic culture is like reading the KKK newsletter for reviews of hip-hop albums. You just ain't gonna get a fair review.
