You will often be told Muslim beat women or so and so...but look at these statistics in USA alone.(USA is predominantly a Christian nation)...

4 million American women experience a serious assault by a partner during an average 12-month period.

On the average, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends every day.

92% of women say that reducing domestic violence and sexual assault should be at the top of any formal efforts taken on behalf of women today.

1 out of 3 women around the world has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.

1 in 5 female high school students reports being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner. Abused girls are significantly more likely to get involved in other risky behaviors. They are 4 to 6 times more likely to get pregnant and 8 to 9 times more likely to have tried to commit suicide.

1 in 3 teens report knowing a friend or peer who has been hit, punched, slapped, choked or physically hurt by his/her partner.

Women of all races are equally vulnerable to violence by an intimate partner.

37% of all women who sought care in hospital emergency rooms for violenceĀ–related injuries were injured by a current or former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend.

Some estimates say almost 1 million incidents of violence occur against a current or former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend per year.

For 30% of women who experience abuse, the first incident occurs during pregnancy.

As many as 324,000 women each year experience intimate partner violence during their pregnancy.

Violence against women costs companies $72.8 million annually due to lost productivity.

74% of employed battered women were harassed by their partner while they were at work.

Ninety-four percent of the offenders in murder-suicides were male.

Seventy-four percent of all murder-suicides involved an intimate partner(spouse, common-law spouse, ex-spouse, or boyfriend/girlfriend). Of these, 96 percent were females killed by their intimate partners.13

Most murder-suicides with three or more victims involved a "family annihilator" -- a subcategory of intimate partner murder-suicide.Family annihilators are murderers who kill not only their wives/girlfriends and children, but often other family members as well,before killing themselves.

Seventy-five percent of murder-suicides occurred in the home.

It's ILLEGAL in christian countries. Do you have trouble understanding the word ILLEGAL. I know you find it hard to accept that what you can do in Islmaic countries with the approval of your Islamic god is ILLEGAL in christian countries.
If you want to beat your wife then go and live in a fascist country that allows it.
How can there be statistics in an Islamic country on wife beating. It is LEGAL.

It it Illegal now but the fact that christian women are batttered day in day out is a source of concern for us Muslims...

It will TAKE millions of years in Islamic lands to come with those kind of statistics..No wonder, many Christian women in the west kill or commit suicide.

Again, the use (or in your case abuse) of statistics freely reported and acknowledged in America (which is a multi cultural, multi dimensional society representing a whole band of different religious and cultural belief systems) in an attempt to somehow prove something about the Muslim claims of 'perfection' due to Islam is a sham.

1. Muslim women are not free to report domestic violence and abuse without retribution, so there are no statistics available on the actual reality of domestic violence in Muslim nations.

2. Even if they were free to report, the stats would not be kept or released to the world at large because it would discredit claims of Islamic perfection and open a huge can of worms.

3. Women who are harmed or raped in Muslim nations run the risk of being punished for reporting their attack. They are blamed for the actions of the men who harm them and the protection of men is encoded into the religion by the beliefs of Muhammad that women are totally subservient to men and have little recourse over any ill treatment they receive.

If you can not provide SIMILAR STUDIES AND STATS from MUSLIM NATIONS, you can NOT legitimately come to any conclusions other than 'human abuse of human occurs'. The degree to which it happens can not be determined to be greater or lesser without comparative statistics from other places.

So again, another Muslim attempts to take the American ability to report and own the difficulties in their societies, that we do not cover it or bury it with shame or use threats of violence against the VICTIMS of such crimes, doubly victimizing them for reporting as happens in places like SAUDI...is an epic failure and proof of your desperation.

Our openness in revealing our faults is a reflection of the Christian belief in forgiveness and repentance, of honesty and truth above lies and denial of these crimes.

But to say it is a Christian act, this abuse, is absurd. Violence is part of the human nature and always has been from the very beginning. Not a single group on the planet is free from this, not a single group on the planet can claim perfection. But the most enlightened group can admit this is wrong and not hide it under the rug or blame the victim or condemn them with moral judgments. The most enlightened group will work toward HEALING this behavior, protecting the women who are victimized in particular and change the fear that hides the truth because of its use as a condemnation instead of a place for redemption to begin.

more lies and agenda... its amusing to think that they might fool anyone:

Wife Beating- Good Enough for Muhammad, Good Enough for You

"But how realistic is it that Muhammad, who taught that women should be made to share their marital bed with three other wives at their husband's discretion (but stoned for adultery), who established the "triple talaq" rule that a woman can be thrown out of the house at any time, who did not disapprove of his men raping women captured in battle... how likely is it that Muhammad would be telling a man to move out of the house rather than use physical force to keep his woman in line?

Not likely. Not likely at all."

Don't concern yourself. Most women in this country that are battered have the courts to protect them. If that doesn't work they have battered womens shelters. Here in Florida the law is as follows, if a woman is battered the husband and or batterer, she is removed forcibly from the home. The batterer is then forced to undergo a psychological evalutaion as to the nature of why he is abusing. If he improves he can return in a few months. If he continues battering said woman, he is then given a mandatory 6 months in jail. How do I know this, because I have counseled battered women. In most cases they second time they don't even listen to the pleas the woman makes. They just take the man away. As for statistics in islamic countries, they don't keep any because of the embarrasing situation that they would be in.

As I said before, I keep repeating that, It will take Muslims million of years to reach those kind of statistics of christian domestic abuse..

Muslims enjoin families.Not like Christians, some who don't even know their parents.You hear women of 15-16 years in swinging clubs...and their families can't do anything.

A woman is used to the point of being attacked, possibly raped.Men tend to have many women escorts and free sex patners, I noticed a christian woman from Denmark being harrased by her patner in UAE recently and I was like...

What the hell with these people..

He doesn't understand the meaning of the word ILLEGAL. I agree in most western countries it is illegal to beat a woman and the batterer can and usually does go to jail.

Answer this question, WHY DO MUSLIMS FLOGG, BEAT OR STONE WOMEN? I want a reasonable answer. WHAT ARE THE STATISTICS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES OF WIFE BEATING? Islam is one big lie, everything you say is ONE BIG LIE. Stop asking why Christian men batter women, and it isn't in the millions, your stats are all screwed up just like you. Men who abuse and batter women are P*SSIES. In the west a man is punished for this CRIME. Is it a CRIME in islam to abuse your wife? Are the men punished for it?

Christians/Jewish people tend to have double standards with Muslim when their "own" backyards are burning and women are raped and assaulted.

To begin with, this obsession to put all domestic violence cases in America under the heading of "Christians" is part of your own attempt to defend that fact that Islam actually SANCTIONS the abuse of wives by their husbands.

Second, any site you post that is Islamic in the attempt to prove this errant assumption only weakens your hopes of puffing up Islam as 'perfect' toward women.

Third, there are strong controls placed upon women in the Middle East, my mother in law was a victim of this 'invisible' abuse you say doesn't exist and she had NO recourse. The law was forbidden to prosecute the man or protect her from her husbands attacks upon her, he was the 'king' of his home and she was not allowed to file charges or seek any other relief than to run to her family who would let her stay until she was ready to return to the same situation. There are no counselling services because the women are forbidden in Islam to 'dishonor the mans reputation' and anyone who reports this stuff is just being what Muhammad called an "ungrateful wife" and deserves to be chastized, not respected and helped.

So go ahead with your delusions of Islamic utopia for women and go ahead and quote are readily available stats in America, but you can not claim this is just a Christian thing. There are Muslim women living here and there are womens agencies receiving plenty of influx of requests for assistance for domestic violence in the MUSLIM HOMES. And virtually every case of 'honor killing' is a Muslim case, not a single Christian case on the books for such a disgusting act of 'protecting honor' with MURDER.

Hypocrites!

the difference is, as i have to pint out, is that we prosecute and pucish the criminals

and we do this without the need to stone or lash the victim as an adulterer

muslims hold their brutal sharia law high, as a shining example of justice

while rapes continue to occur and go unpunished under islam

and this is better? savages.

Undercover Mosque

Despite being considered Britain's principal ally in the Middle East, this disturbing report reveals Saudi Arabian Islam - Wahabism - is spreading a message of bigotry and hatred to a section of Muslims and predicting an imminent jihad.

Domestic abuse is reported more often the west because of the nature of our law...we have both a freedom of the press to be able to report it in the papers, news, etc...
And also because the women that are battered by the partner or husband actually has the right to press charges and have the man arrested and put into prison.
In most Islamic nations there are no rights for the woman to report abuse to police, or anyone...if they report it they are chastised by the Iman or Mullahs, and the police are more likely to arrest them for embarrassing the husband...not what I would call a just and good or fair system....
Yes, you have the abuse...you just hide it behind your religious curtains....and backwards laws...
