Violence in the Arab and Muslim Worlds

In the past, when I have posted about violence perpetrated by Arab and Muslim men (mostly against their women), I have received some comments along the lines of “Why do you solely focus on the Arab and Muslim men? This phenomenom is not restricted to them.”

 

Maybe these commenters have a point:

An enraged Saudi bride badly beat up a female wedding guest who had photographed her with a camera-equipped mobile phone, a newspaper reported.

 

After spotting the woman taking the picture in the all-female section of the party in the western city of Taif, the bride “beat her severely, destroyed her mobile phone and pulled her by her hair in front of all the guests,” the Al-Jazirah daily said.

 

The bride then ripped off the woman’s veil and announced through a microphone the woman’s motives, before receiving a round of applause “for being vigilant”. She then tidied up her appearance and proceeded with the celebration.

I trust that this dispels any notions that I unreasonably focus on Arab/Muslim men.
