Freed? Not even deported? “Honor” killing is violence and death for individual liberty, personal choice, personal freedom.
How were these people not deported? A plea deal? Honor killing should be a capital crime.
Their lawyer, David Lutz, claimed called the case a “very critical clash of cultures” — a clash of civilizations is more like it.
“Their words were taken literally instead of figuratively.” More Islamic doublespeak. They threatened to kill her several times. It was hardly a throwaway. And this sends a message to every Muslim girl in a devout household yearning to live a free life — the West will not save you. The West does not have your back. The West is just as afraid of Islamic mores and traditions as you are.
Media ignores Trudeau’s “refugees” threatening to murder their daughter:
Two of the “Syrian refugees” Trudeau rushed into the country have repeatedly threatened to murder their daughter for various “honor crimes”.
The first incident was in April 2016, when Ahmad Ayoub threatened to poison his daughter Bayan’s food after he discovered an iPad she’d won in a contest. Last summer, Ahmad told his daughter “it would be better to slaughter her” than let her continue meeting and communicating with a non-Muslim man.
In February 2018, Ahmad again threatened to kill his daughter if she received messages from people she’d worked with at the local food bank.
You would think a father repeatedly threatening to murder his daughter would make national news, but I haven’t’ seen this story anywhere outside of New Brunswick.
How many other stories is the media party ignoring? (The Rebel)A Syrian refugee couple who threatened their adult daughter with an honour killing for dating a Canadian man have made a plea deal with New Brunswick prosecutors that will save them from possible deportation back to their war-ravaged homeland.
Ahmad Ayoub, 52, and his wife Faten, 48, were freed this week after 72 days in jail, after pleading guilty to uttering threats as a summary conviction offence, and being sentenced to time served.
If they had been convicted of the more serious indictable offence of uttering threats, for which a trial was scheduled in the summer, they would have faced a sentence in the range of six months to a year, up to a maximum of two years.
More importantly, they would have faced the possibility of also being sent back to Syria, from which they escaped through Jordan, eventually settling in Fredericton in 2016, sponsored by the federal government.
“That’s the main thing that we gained,” said David Lutz, Ahmad’s lawyer. “Nobody who is a refugee wants to be convicted of any indictable offence, because it’s going to bring them under the purview of deportation.”
Lutz called the case a “very critical clash of cultures” that has sent a clear message to the Syrian community in Canada that even empty threats are taken seriously by the police and courts.
“Their words were taken literally instead of figuratively,” Lutz said. “In my interaction with the entire family, I came to the conclusion that this is a manner of speech that they never really intend to carry any of this out, but they do it so to say, ‘You should mind me, because this is what I think’.”
The Ayoubs have one adult child who remains in Jordan, and five others, one as young as 10, in Fredericton. Both have post-secondary education. Ahmad has worked in business, and Faten as a cook, but neither are employed yet in Canada.
No one answered the phone at their home on Wednesday. George Kalinowski, Faten Ayoub’s lawyer, declined to comment.
The threats were made against their daughter Bayan, 25. They were spoken in Arabic, once face to face, otherwise on the phone, and they only came to light when Bayan told her Canadian boyfriend, who encouraged her to go to police. She soon recanted, however, and was described in court by prosecutor Claude Haché as a reluctant participant in the prosecution.
“Throughout the time from which her parents were arrested and detained, (Bayan) was recanting and saying ‘All this is my fault.’ But of course, just like in domestic assaults, the police — and rightly so — don’t take the recanting seriously,” Lutz said.
Or, if they take it seriously, they see it as a symptom of the same problem, he added.
