Treat her like a lady…
He ordered the idols in the Kaaba destroyed, but left the old forms of worship almost unchanged. The Black Stone remained the focal point of pilgrimages, and the ritual of walking around the shrine seven times continued. In his new role as ruler of a growing Arab state that included Mecca and Medina, Mohammed was increasingly given to dictating social as well as religious behavior. He instructed his followers to avoid pork and meat from animals that had died a natural death or had been strangled, or beaten, or gored. He banned drinking and gambling. Husbands were advised to keep away from their wives during menstrual periods. Adultery was condemned- even though the Prophet prudently ruled that four eye-witnesses were necessary to prove it- , as was killing a man, except in just cause. Stealing was to be punished by cutting off the thief’s hands.
The overriding social question in the Koran, however, is the treatment of women. In this, as in other reforms, the Prophet seems to have been guided more by the social context of the period than by the need to express eternally valid dogmas. He had to solve the problem of a society in which there were more women than men, and the solution he proposed was polygamy. The relationship of man to woman,as stated in the Koran, is that of Lord to Vassal: “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 their beds apart and beat them.”
The Prophet asked husbands to treat their wives kindly and without favoritism. But the woman’s position is clear. She has been paid a dowry and is therefore regarded as her husband’s property. “Woman are your fields,” the Koran says. “Go then into your fields as you please.” Mohammed himself took a total of fifteen wives, although he probably never had more than nine at any one time. Some of his marriages were political to form alliances with powerful families. His favorite wife was Aisha, whom he married when she was six. The marriage wasconsummated three years later. At one point, Aisha was suspected of having committed adultery with a camel driver, but a revelation arrived just in timeto quell the rumors and proclaim her innocence.
(see link at end)…It is now the season of sectarian kidnappings in Lebanon and Syria. Without a doubt, and without any question, this season was inaugurated by the gangs of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). Their sectarian intent was clear from the beginning when they insisted, from day one, that they were fighting Shia from the Mahdi Army, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and Hezbollah.
They were spreading this rather hilarious lie – if you consider the military qualifications of the Mahdi Army – very early on in the Syrian crisis when no serious defections were reported in the Syrian Army. Even to this very day, the Syrian Army does not seem to suffer from a shortage of men (of different sects) who are willing to continue the killing and bombing. It is likely that the sectarian agenda of the FSA was an order from their oil and gas benefactors in the Gulf.
They started with an ugly kidnapping of Lebanese pilgrims with no political ties and who were traveling with their families. The professional liars of the FSA first claimed that the abducted were all Hezbollah fighters. However, when their faces were shown on camera and the ages of some of the men were revealed they modified the lie and claimed that Hezbollah fighters were traveling with the pilgrims and their families for some unknown reason.
Still, the gangs of the FSA would not be satisfied. After subjecting the families of the hostages to cruel torture through a grotesque media spectacle, for which New TV and LBC should be primarily blamed; they kidnapped one Lebanese who had fled his country after writing too many checks that bounced.
Bizarrely, the gangs of the Free Syrian Army, who find lying to be the easiest of their tasks, claimed that this lone Lebanese was, yet again, a Hezbollah fighter who was sent by Hassan Nasrallah. They also managed to feed the hostage a dosage of their grotesque sectarian language. Read More:http://english.al-akhbar.com/blogs/angry-corner/kidnapping-festival-lebanon-and-syria
(see link at end) …The prince, who faced an international arrest warrant for ignoring the custody terms, denied he had ever ‘kidnapped’ his own daughter, saying: ‘She was free to come and go as she pleased.’
However, after the hearing, the prince was reported to have told Nouvel Observateur magazine: ‘If need be, I’ll go like [Osama] bin Laden and hide in the mountains with Aya.’
He added before Miss Cohen-Ahnine’s death: ‘France has not got a right to take her back.
…August 2012: Miss Cohen-Ahnine falls to her death from a luxury apartment block in Paris.
‘She is a Saudi citizen and a princess. They cannot oblige a princess to leave this country.’
Miss Cohen-Ahnine died from her injuries at the Pitie-Salpetriere hospital in Paris after the fall in the Rue Chambiges.
Initial investigations by the Paris prosecutor suggest that she had been trying to get into a neighbouring flat through an open window – suggesting she had been trying to escape.
Witnesses heard the drama, but did not intervene, a police source added, with Ms Tarquiny-Charpentier saying he spoke to Miss Cohen-Ahnine ‘a few hours’ before and ‘she was fine’.
She had been due to travel to Riyadh in September, and was likely to have had her daughter back ‘within a month’, added Ms Tarquiny-Charpentier.
Autopsy results will be released later this week, and they may throw further light on exactly what happened.
Aya, meanwhile, remains in Saudi Arabia with her father, who is yet to comment on Ms Cohen-Ahnine’s death.
Jean-Claude Elfassi, who co-wrote Miss Cohen-Ahnine’s book, wrote an online tribute to her and criticised the French authorities for failing to enforce the court order.
