Sharia Law in Lebanon: Muslim who honor-beat his wife to death released

Honor violence, honor murder is not just an Islamic tradition, it's Islamic law.

A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni
orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni
Islam, says that "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a
human being purely intentionally and without right." However, "not
subject to retaliation" is "a father or mother (or their fathers or
mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring." ('Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.

As Robert Spencer notes: "Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide.

The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law
limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but the new law
says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of
passion or honour 'provided he serves a prison term of no less than two
years in the case of killing.' And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament
voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties
for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that 'Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.'"

Lebanon man who beat his wife to death released MMedia, July 25, 2013 (thanks to Religion of Peace.com)

Investigative Judge Alaa
al-Khatib released a man, Karam al-Bazi, accused of beating his wife
Roula Yaacoub to death in a case that has raised an outcry in the
country, As-Safir newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The decision stirred anger in the victim’s hometown of Halba in northern Lebanon.

 Yaacoub’s family denounced the decision while her mother, Leila,
described the event as “a great shame which proves the amount of
cronyism in the judiciary.”

 “I will not give up on the case under any circumstance, and I will
not be silenced until I claim my daughter’s rights,” the mother added.

Roula Yaacoub was allegedly beaten to death by her husband in
northern Lebanon, triggering an outpour of criticism from the media and
civil society.

 

Weeks later, a draft law protecting women from domestic violence was
approved by a Lebanese parliamentary panel after years of campaigning by
rights groups, who welcomed the move as a step forward.
