This week’s JihadWatch chat with Michael Coren and Robert Spencer on Canada’s SunTV discussed how Secretary of State John Kerry shared that he is currently reading “No God but God.” The book is a whitewash written by Reza Aslan, a media-savvy spokesman for the idea that moderate Islam exists. Kerry commented in Berlin, “I know that Islam is not represented by a lot of jihadists and others. I know it’s a beautiful religion.”
Another topic was the report from the Middle East: Nearly half Saudi women are beaten at home.
Why should that level of abuse be a surprise? Only half? The Koran recommends that men should batter their wives if they are disobedient. Mohammed (the perfect man, according to Islam) himself beat his favorite wife Aisha. Spousal abuse occurs throughout cultures, but only Islam provides divine approval.
Other subjects included Palestinian anti-Semitism and the cluelessness of Western governments about what’s happening in Syria.
