Islamic Court: UAE Says Wife, Child Beating OK - Just Don't Leave Any Marks
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (CBS/AP) Apparently, it is perfectly OK for a man to beat his wife and young children, according to the UAE's highest judicial body, as long as the thrashing doesn't leave any physical marks.
The decision by the Federal Supreme Court shows the strong influence of Islamic law in the Emirates despite its international appeal in which foreign residents greatly outnumber the local population.
The court made the ruling earlier this month in the case of a man who beat his wife and adult daughter. The court stated that the man crossed the line suggested by Sharia Law because the daughter was not a minor and the wife sustained visible injuries."
ok,I'm sure most people will be opposed to this,so what is anything can be done to help?

Let it remain their own family problem. No one has the right to interfere in these things, except legal authorities. Even if law intervenes, the family will break up. No one has the right to break up a family. Especially others who have different culture should not even discuss these things..... as they do not like to discuss their own culture.
There is a world of difference, between "corrective" physical reprimanding, and "thrashing'' someone ... out of sheer vengeance.
Those still familiar ... with parental love, and conjugal sincerety... know, physical reprimanding is allowed in Islam for its Social amd Moral Value ... not as the means of venting a conceit.
Time and again scholars point out that Islam is a religion of peace because 'Islam' means peace. That's OK.
Now if courts in Muslim countries "legalize" beating up of wives what are we supposed to conclude?
Now why is the Lib crowd taking up the defense of Sharia law ?
