Men kill wives because they talk too much, says life coach

7 May 2013, Tuesday /TODAY'S ZAMAN, İSTANBUL
A controversial figure who calls herself an “Islamic life coach” has said that women are to blame for the rising number of incidents of domestic violence and violence against women.

Sibel Üresin, who earlier drew anger for saying polygamy -- marriage with more than one spouse -- should be legal and publicly announced that she had encouraged her husband to get a second wife, recommending a close girlfriend for the job, has said to the religious-minded İkra magazine: “Women talk ceaselessly. It is the woman's fault if she is killed.”

She said that because women are economically empowered they have inflated egos and talk too much. “It looks better on a woman to be naive, polite and soft, and that's how it is in our religion,” she maintained. Üresin also said that even when a woman is more knowledgeable about a subject then her husband, she should keep silent. “Really, I know some women that never shut up. It is very normal that her husband's going to go crazy. The biggest weapon a woman has is her ability to hold grudges and show that through her attitude, but men resort to violence, because they are built that way.”

and yet, it is so easy for a muslim man to divorce his wife that there really is no excuse for resoting to violence.
Sibel or whatever is her last name is trash talking and she is a junk maker. Submission as wife's yes, but trash talking about why women are "talking too much' is nonsense and justifying death is not from God. Turkish women are getting more independent, as they know the difference between right and...
