An Islamic guide on how to beat your wife

MADRID -- An imam who wrote a book on how to beat your wife without leaving marks on her body has been ordered by a judge in Spain to study the country's constitution.

The judge told Mohamed Kamal Mustafa, imam of a mosque in the southern resort of Fuengirola, to spend six months studying three articles of the constitution and the universal declaration of human rights.

Although the Spanish judge's heart is in the right place, his ruling will most likely have little impact on the Imam or those of his ilk. In the eyes of the Muslim believer, man-made laws -- especially those legislated by non-Muslim infidels -- can never supercede Islamic law.

Um, yeaaaahhhh, reading the constitution. That'll learn him good! He'll never repeat that mistake!

Sheesh.

It's not that the Imam was ignorant of the law, it was that he felt the Muslim law superceded it. And that's not going to change.

What angers me is when Muslims or their apologists point out that honor killing is against Islam. Maybe it is specifically, but the anti-woman atmosphere created by Islamic law obviously creates a climate whereby such murders occur all too frequently.
