  • Islamophobic: their Koran permits them to beat their wives...
  • Me: Yes it does but could you tell me what with?
  • Islamophobic: ...
  • Me: A blade of grass, I don't know the last time you tried to beat someone with a blade of grass but it is pretty damn impossible, you must look at the people the Qur'an was revealed to, the Arabs at that time (just like most of the world) would beat their wives brutally. To tell them they couldn't beat their wives would have caused rebellion, so Allah (swt) being the greatest of planners, revealed it in a way that was so clever. It permitted them to beat their wives (as not to cause rebellion) however only with a blade of grass (which we all know to be impossible). Then the most beautiful line came saying but surely it is better for you to forgive, do you see now that the Qur'an does not permit the brutal beating of wives which in that time would have saved the lives of many women. Also I suggest you look at the rights of a wife over her husband, then tell me my religion is sexist.

European accents (and in general white people accents) are commonly perceived as attractive and endearing, while accents from basically any other part of the world are considered to be signs of laziness and disrespect and get routinely made fun of.

Ma’an News: Expert: Olive harvest to decline to half of annual average

The olive harvest in Palestine is expected to yield only half the amount of olive oil as usual this year, an expert told Ma’an Sunday.

Faris al-Jabi, who chairs the Palestinian National Center for Research and Agricultural Development, told Ma’an that the 2014 olive harvest would not exceed 15,000 tons of olive oil.

In good years, Palestine produces 30,000-32,000 tons of olive oil, but production is expected to decline this year, especially in the Salfit, Ramallah, Tulkarem, and Qalqiliya districts, al-Jabi said.

In Salfit and Ramallah, olive oil production is expected to decline to 30 percent of the annual average.

As a result, the price of fresh olive oil is expected to rise to 23-25 shekels (around $6.50) per kilo. 

The olive industry supports the livelihoods of roughly 80,000 families in the occupied West Bank.
