Extremist or Mainstream???

This video is rather disturbing for women, and I can't help but wonder where the feminists are. Or anyone who believe in equal rights for all, for that matter!

Can you imagine some preacher standing up here in this country and saying that the only way to deal with certain types of women is to beat her? Think of the outcry! And yet, in predominately Muslim countries, it is normal. Women are oppressed in this way (not to mention at the moment other ways that women are oppressed.) Here is what the Koran says about beating women:

QURAN 4:34 - "Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is high, supreme."

I would prefer to not live under those types of rules, thank you very much!
