A German woman judge has refused a Moroccan woman permission to file for divorce by interpreting the Koran as allowing husbands to beat their wives

AFP:

"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.

A court in the western city of Frankfurt on Wednesday upheld a complaint of bias against the judge lodged by the lawyer of the 26-year-old woman, who has two children.

The woman had filed for immediate divorce on the grounds that the husband, also of Moroccan origin, regularly beat her and threatened to kill her. The claims were backed up by a police report.

But the female judge, who has not been named, made clear in a letter that the wife's bid had little chance of approval because, according to her, Islamic law allowed a man to strike his wife.

German politicians from all parties were united in disgust at the judgement.

"When the Koran takes precedence over the German Basic Law, then I can only say: Good night Germany," Ronald Pofalla, the secretary general of the conservative Christian Democratic Union of Chancellor Angela Merkel, told Bild.

Hans-Christian Stroebele, of the opposition Greens, said the kind of abuse suffered by the woman should be punished by German criminal law.

Thank Allah this pig infidel judage has finally given our Brothers in Jihad the right to beat their whore wives in Germany. I eagerly await the day when the 9th Circuit Court in the West of the infidel nation of America enables us to beat our wives here in Jersey City without anybody bothering us. I can't wait to tell Fatima, Aiasha and the Second Fatima the news. They will be so pleased!

The Germans ought to send both of them back to Morocco.

Keep all Muslims - particularly Moroccans - out of Europe!

I wish it were as easy as that--what about the ones that have German passports?? And, sadly, they only get more verminous with every generation. So far the second-third generation are the scum of the earth, whilst their parents are slightly more respectful. What is going to happen when a new round of this ubiquitous spawn of the devil is released? Who would have known that Europe's apocalypse would come from what presumably was its own species
