German Judge Working Steadily Towards Dhimmitude

Liberals, take note, so you can push the same thing here in the USA

BERLIN (AFP) – A German woman judge has refused a Moroccan-born woman permission to file for divorce by interpreting the Koran as allowing husbands to beat their wives.

"Where are we living? Woman judge allows beating in marriage… and invokes the Koran," said a front-page headline in Germany's top-selling Bild newspaper, reflecting the widespread angry reaction on Thursday.

"This Moroccan woman has the same right to protection from a violent husband as any German woman. Anything else would be misconceived sensitivity to the benefit of the husband and would amount to racist discrimination against the wife," said the Tageszeitung daily.

The Central Council of Muslims in Germany also condemned the decision.

"The judge should have made a decision based on the German constitution instead of the Koran," said spokeswoman Nurhan Soykan, who said that violence and mistreatment, regardless of the gender of the victim, were also grounds for divorce in the Islamic world.

I suppose it just goes to show that judges around the world live in their own little worlds, and use foreign law to make rulings.

Good to see that there is actually an uproar over this issue, particularly from a Muslim group. We sometimes forget that not all Muslims are evil terrorists. Some just want to live their lives. Unfortunately, they rarely condemn the Muslim extremists groups, but that is a seperate subject.
