Trubble among muslims in Sweden!

There is an update in the end.
Yesterday a Swedish program was broadcasted in the Swedish television about what the Imams are saying when they do not know the society are listening. It was Uppdrag Granskning (Swe link) who wanted to examine that by sending out two women in niqab, and with a hidden camera, to ask what they shall do because their husbands have taken a new wife, are beating them and forcing them to have sex. All three things are illegal in Sweden (and both of the women are true believers in Islam).
One, I repeat only One Imam told them to go to the police because you shall never beat your wife.
The rest were not so very good... (some of them said a little bit good things too)

The main mosque in Sweden, the one in the center of Stockholm, where one of the worse! "Even if your husband is beating you and has go another wife you got to have sex with him, and you shall not go to the police because then it is problems . They will put him in jail!" That means that he knew it is illegal to beat but he says she must accept it. I wonder if He, the Imam, a holy person (?) would accept to be beaten and forced to have sex. Don´t think so.. (But he is a man, or?)

In six of the ten mosques the Imams tells the woman they must have sex with their husband, according to the quran. The only times they may say "No!" is when they are ill or have got the period.

Where are the womens rights?
A friend of me said in Facebook "throw the bastards (Imams) out from the country, they have no right to treat the women in that way. I said "No". If we throw them out from Sweden we will just move the problem to another country and their women. (when he said to the moon I accepted, because as far as I know no women are living there)

According to Helena Benaouda (Swe link), the leader of  "Sveriges muslimska råd" (The Swedish muslim council) they know there "have been" a problem with some volunteer imams, but that is because some mosques do not have so much money. Hey, Helena what planet are you from? (I know you are born Swedish and this is your country) All these mosques gets money from the state or their countys (written in the link), and most of them gets money from ex Saudi Arabia. They have well educated Imams (the mosque in Stockholm has it most certenly). And you try to say they are not educated? And tries to make it sound like the government in Sweden do not give you enough money? Wake up! (try to say something to help the muslims instead, because right now people only thinks about who is your daugthers husband, Munir Awad, and thinks it is because of that you have strange opinions...)

Some muslims in Sweden says the program was not good to show because it only makes the islamophobia worse, and helps the racists. Hmm, who helps the racists here? Isn´t it the Imams living in a time that should only be remembered in One thousand ond one night's? As long as people calling themselves muslims and treat their women in this way that religion will have problems in Europe. When they live as a lot of my muslim friends it is no problem.

Finally: When I saw the look in the 12 years old girl in a suburb to Stockholm walking with her hijab looking at her former classmate, my 12 years old daugther, I felt bad. You could see in her eyes she did not have the hijab because of something between her and Allah. It was her parents forcing her to have it probably because they did not the men to look at her as a sexual object. They have not understood the words in the quran, then... (according to the Imam in the muslim school I worked at four years ago.)
The day after the program there was a debate about it in the same chanal.
According to aftonbladet (Swe link) three muslim women had a hard time during the debate. They did not get enought of time to speak, and they where interupted by the men who were rising their voices (very usual to do when you have no core in what you say... try to shut the mouth of the opponent). It ended with the three brave women leaving the studio. They told aftonbladet that "Islam is not a women suppresing religion" and "the men are bad representants for islam".
I agree with the women, but unfortunately their wholy book says a little too much about women... the men wants to read those parts to be able to be kings in their house, but it should be read as those parts in the Bible are read (in Sweden anyway, not in the christian right och catholic church): "It is history and should be so too"

According to DN (Swe link) it is usual that the women do not get any support from the imams. "Many imams gets a work (in a mosque) as family councils, and then they get power in a social work they are not educated in. Then they might answer according to their religiuos moral", a scientist working with islam says.
And I say "a so called religious moral is nothing worth when it hurts and kills people", I know that it is written in sura 4 verse 34 and 38 that the man must take care of the woman economically, and that he has the right to in the last instance beat her if she is not behaving, but that is just a book written by a man to other men to try to suppress the women (but he did it better for the women by the standards of that time). Now it is time to see that we are equal in everything-same intelligence (but in my eyes it seems that a lot of men called imams are less..), same kinds of feelings and same rights according to the only law that is just- the law of the country and not a silly religios law.
