Amazon is funneling money to a Muslim cleric who insists that husbands have the right to commit abuse and no one is allowed to question it. There are allegedly some Democrats that agree with that. Sen Sherrod Brown, Sen Tom Carper, Rep Jared Polis and Rep Keith Ellison. Under the Amazon Smile program, buyers can donate a percentage of their purchases.
I wonder if they know where the money is going. Bezos gives the money to the Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) founded by Saudi-born Haitham al-Haddad. al-Haddad endorses wife beating and the stoning of adulteresses. (Just the women, not the men)
A series of controversial statements by the Salafist scholar — a graduate in Islamic law from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) — have been compiled by The Times, advancing a range of hardline views.
These include claims that adulterous women should be stoned to death, and that he has, in fact, received “many requests from Western women… begging me to help them to find their way to a Muslim country to be stoned to death” so they could “avoid punishment in the afterlife” — although it is not revealed whether he actually did facilitate any voluntary executions of this kind.
“It is the Islamic punishment. What does the UK government want? Do they want Muslims to change their beliefs?” he demanded.
