New Zealand Woman Marries Muslim in Egypt, Gets Lesson in Qur'anic Justice

Muhammad's wife Aisha once admitted that Muslim women were treated more harshly than pagan women (Sahih al-Bukhari 5825). Why, you ask? Because Muslim men have a divine obligation to beat their wives into submission (Qur'an 4:34).

EGYPT--Beaten with a slave whip, starved and scared, Kiwi Sharon Churchill believes she would still be a hostage of her Egyptian husband if it wasn't for a team of New Zealand diplomats who helped her to escape.

The 41-year-old from Tirau in Waikato suffered emotional abuse and beatings from her husband of five months - a man she once called the love of her life - and started sleeping with a steel pipe for protection.

But on February 14, she escaped, with the help of embassy staff in Cairo, and is now warning other women about the dangers of holiday romances.

In letters she has sent to the Prime Minister and other ministers, Ms Churchill credits the diplomats with saving her life by working with Egyptian authorities to get her out of the house and on a flight home.

However, her ex-husband denies the claims, saying he never assaulted her and that problems in their relationship were her fault.

"In other countries the man feel the woman she don't respect him and I find that in her. It's not my fault."

Speaking out for the first time since arriving home, she said she was still recovering from an ordeal that had left her with physical and emotional scars and $30,000 out of pocket. . . .

"There were a couple of days I didn't have water or food. I lost 12kg in six weeks. It was semi-starvation."

One hellish night in February, fearing for her safety, Ms Churchill slept on the roof with a steel pipe.

"He came up with an Egyptian slave whip and beat me with it. It cut my arms open and my legs were severely bruised. I was screaming, 'Help me', and he said, 'No one's going to help you'. I knew he would kill me before he would let me out." . . .

Ms Churchill has words of advice for any woman considering a holiday romance in the Middle East: "Have a fling with them, [but] don't get into a relationship. Once you enter into any contract of marriage, you become their property." (Read more.)

I almost felt sorry for this woman, but then I read her advice.

Radical Moderate, yeah, what stupid advice. Is she one of those women that Mohammad declared deficient?

What a stupid woman to engage with a Muslim man. I can't really feel sorry for her for being stupid enough to take that chance, considering the state of Islam and Muslims these days. Unless she has been living under a rock, she should be aware of issues with Muslims, especially in Islamic controlled lands such as Egypt. One of the reasons that some Muslim men take wives back to such lands is to have complete control over them since they can't do that in more open Western societies that are more likely to condemn Islamic practices by law and culture.

I understand that anyone can use bad judgment and do stupid, silly things; but, I would expect better of women, especially with the continual negative press of Islam and Muslims abusing women and treating them unfairly as if it is a right. While keyboarding this, the song "Stupid Girl" by Garbage came to my mind.

RM,

It's kinda funny because I though the samething.

But it seems that you beat me to it.

I don't know if that sounds right. Anyway

His Arabic Quran does not say “lightly” in brackets. It just says scourge your disobedient wives, so he aptly used a slave whip to scourge her. The man is just following his false prophet’s injunction in the Quran.

This one hits close to home. I'm glad our government rescued her.

a muslim: I know you can't read arabic, but they said 'lightly'!

non muslim: nope, it doesn't said lightly in the original text.

a muslim: [shows the text] see ? there is the word lightly in it! I know my (trans.) Quran!

non muslim: good, I believe you are correct, I guess they also invented bracket in classical arabic too !!

You can marry people who are in a barbaric backward cult.

If you look at Atlasshrugs, a woman claiming to be the New Zealander in question has posted comments. She's a liberal, leftarded loonbat. Of course, I don't believe anyone has been murdered in New Zealand by islamonazis yet.

I don't belive her. Her allegation of starvation is contradicted by her other statements. If she was whiped then where are the scars. There isn't a single thing to support her claims and we the tax payer have to pay for her lifestle choices.
I think is a big beat up. I think what really happened is that she changed her mind but discovered that a marriage in Egypt is not something you can dump on a whim so she made up this BS story. New Zealand women are so used to treating marriage as a profitable fling that she didn't consider that marriage still means a commitment in other countries.

Speaking of barbaric backward cults. That is a perfect way to describe NZ family courts so I wouldn't be so judgemental of Egypt.
