Clothes Aren't the Issue: The 34th Verse of the Fourth Chapter of the Koran Is

If this article in the Washington Post today dosn't give you a clue, than little if anything will ever lift the veil from your clouded brain: When dealing with a "disobedient wife," a Muslim man has a number of options. First, he should remind her of "the importance of following the instructions of the husband in Islam." If that doesn't work, he can "leave the wife's bed." Finally, he may "beat" her, though it must be without "hurting, breaking a bone, leaving blue or black marks on the body and avoiding hitting the face, at any cost." Where is NOW when you really need them?

What amazes me about the Washington Post is that on the same day that they run a clear thinking and honest article about the rights (or lack there of) of women in Islam, in the fashion section they have the nerve to run this article, where a real bimbo inks an article called: "How I Came to Love the Veil." Wow, maybe it's just me.
