Bahraini Cleric: Jews and Christians Try to Destroy Muslim Women

A Bahraini cleric recently claimed that Jews and Christians, out of envy for the "beautiful close-knit fabric" of the Muslim family, were trying to destroy the Muslim family by propagating equality between the sexes.

The cleric, Adel Hasan Al-Hamad, made the remarks in a recent Friday sermon in Qatar, which was televised on the Saudi 4Shabab TV channel and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

According to Al-Hamad, only a "brainless lunatic" would say that men and women are equal.
