Imagine how embarrassed the Office of the Attorney General of Lucerne will be when it finds out that this imam is no “extremist,” but was just preaching mainstream, Qur’anic Islam.

The mandate for beating women is in the Qur’an: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad beat Aisha, his famous child bride. Muhammad, according to Aisha, “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127).
