A German judge cites the Quran in handing down a verdict:
A German judge has stirred a storm of protest here by citing the Koran in turning down a German Muslim wife’s request for a fast-track divorce on the ground that her husband beat her.
In a remarkable ruling that underlines the tension between Muslim customs and European laws, the judge, Christa Datz-Winter, said the couple came from a Moroccan cultural milieu in which it is common for husbands to beat their wives. The Koran, she wrote, sanctions such physical abuse.
Here’s my prediction; given that radical Islam in America is using the Twin Cities as its testbed for slipping Moslem religious law into American life – the Flying Imams, Target Cashiers Against Pork, and the cabbies who won’t carry booze – I have to wonder if we’re not going to see someone trying to push a case just like this, right here, and very soon.
