Blazing Cat Fur asks the question of the day.
Just what is the definition of “non-violence” in Islam?

Sheikh Abu Adam is the Egyptian imam of the Darul Quran Mosque in Munich. He’s something of a poster boy for ‘moderate’ Islam, lectures frequently on topics like ‘An Islam which distances itself from violence’ and advises the German government on Islamic affairs.
But at home, he’s apparently a real traditionalist.
The imam was arrested by German police after beating one of his wives so badly that she suffered a broken nose and shoulder and numerous cuts and bruises.
The woman, who was the mother of one of the Sheikh’s ten children, apparently took some of his lectures to heart and told Sheikh Abu Adam she wanted to live a more ‘western’ lifestyle. That’s what allegedly brought on the beating, which was accompanied by the appropriate Qu’rannic verses about what happens to disobedient Muslim women and how their husbands need to knock some sense into them.
