Wife-beating is sanctioned under Islam law. But this killer got carried away.
A Facebook video by an Islamic group condones domestic violence and describes hitting wives as “a beautiful blessing.” A New York woman beheaded by her moderate Muslim husband, a woman beaten so bad that she swallowed her tongue and died, a woman set on fire by the Muslim who “loved her” ……sharia courts protect wife-beaters and honor killers.
Qur’an (4:34) – “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” Contemporary translations sometimes water down this word, but it is the same one used in verse 8:12 and clearly means “to strike.”
A woman who lived next door told the Citizen she heard banging coming from inside her neighbour’s apartment on March 11.
Marcy Chabot said she heard footsteps running down the hallway outside her apartment around 11 p.m. on March 11, then what sounded like a person being slapped. “I heard someone slap someone, skin on skin.”
She heard the door slam shut. “There was about two minutes of banging in the apartment, then nothing.” The banging was on the mother’s living room wall, which adjoined the bedroom wall in Chabot’s apartment. The walls in the apartments in the building on Burnside Avenue are thin and sound travels easily, Chabot said.
Chabot said she had experienced a lot of conflict with the woman, and had called police roughly 10 times to complain about what she considered her neighbour’s abusive behaviour, such as screaming, swearing and pounding on Chabot’s door.
The woman often banged on the wall of her apartment — sometimes for lengthy periods of time — so Chabot said she didn’t take any special notice of the banging that night. “It was unusual only (because) it lasted two minutes.”
“I didn’t know she was in danger or I would have helped her.”
She didn’t know the woman was in danger? These daily beatings were considered the norm?
