Huffington Post and domestic abuse

The Huffington Post's San Francisco editor thinks Ross Mirkarimi should resign as sheriff just because he's been charged---not convicted---of domestic abuse. Seems odd that the HuffPost would then publish an unconvincing rationalization of domestic abuse in the Koran by a Muslim.

One would think that a website created by a woman would be more sensitive on the issue, like Tina Brown's the Daily Beast, which publishes an account of how a Muslim family bullies and threatens to kill one of its daughters, which is not unusual in Muslim countries. The Daily Beast, with Newsweek, is also sponsoring the Women in the World summit.

Thanks to Jihad Watch for the link.
