Outrage in my neighbouring country Germany. A 26 year old German woman, from Moroccan offspring, seeking a divorce because her Moroccan husband was systematically beating and threatening her, was turned down by the judge. The (female) judge argued that in Moroccan-Islamitic culture “it is not unusual for a man to excersize his right of punishment”. The woman, born in Germany, “should have taken that into account when she married the Moroccan born man”.  Even Islamitic groups in Germany expressed that the case should have gone by German law instead of by explaining the koran. The judge is taken off the case.  And rightfully so in my opinion. I think I am pretty liberal, live and let live, but violence to women, children etc? No way.  Fucker.
