FORMER MUSLIM: “If you truly follow Islam, you must be violent”

From the Astute Bloggers:

Shayesteh became a Christian, and when his wife and three daughters were able to join him in Turkey, they noticed the big difference in his life.

American politicians often speak diplomatically about Muslims, but Shayesteh minces no words in speaking out about how Christians and Jews need to understand Islamic law.

“Women are considered inferior,” he said. “You can beat your wife and lock her in a room until she dies. In fact, you must be violent towards your wife.”

President Obama recently said that Muslims have made many great contributions to America.

“That was embarrassing,” Shayesteh said. “I have just one answer for that — name one.”

One point of debate over the past few years has been whether radical Islamists are an exception or whether the Koran and the Islamic religion are inherently violent. Shayesteh believes the latter to be true.

“If you truly follow Islam, you must be violent,” he said.
 “Of course, there are millions of Muslims who aren’t following Islam.” He added that among the 60 Muslim nations, there are none that allow freedom of speech or religion.
