Man gets 30 years for ripping out wife's eyes
The Sydney Morning Herald ^ | March 21, 2007 | unattributed

Posted on 03/20/2007 11:25:58 PM PDT by Fred Nerks

A man who ripped out his wife's eyes in a fit of rage was sentenced by a French court to 30 years behind bars on Tuesday.

Mohamed Hadfi, 31, tore out his 23-year-old wife Samira Bari's eyes following a heated argument in their apartment in the southern French city of Nimes in July 2003 after she refused to have sex with him.

Bari, who had demanded a divorce before the attack, was permanently blinded.

Hadfi, a Moroccan, initially fled to Germany. He was arrested and sent back to France, where he was indicted for "acts of torture and barbarity leading to a permanent disability".

Prosecutor Dominique Tourette demanded that he be sentenced to 30 years in prison, two-thirds of which must be served in full, calling the defendant a "diabolic torturer".

Once his sentence is served, Hadfi will be deported and barred from ever returning to France.

His lawyer Jean-Pierre Cabanes meanwhile insisted there were extenuating circumstances.

"This is the result of a marriage that was arranged, not chosen," he said, pointing to the gulf separating his client, who came from southern Morocco, and his young wife, who had grown up in France.

Cabanes begged the jury for leniency, claiming his client's action "appeared to stem from a mental illness".

She lost her eyes, and thats a horrible thing to contemplate, but at least she is well-rid of that despicable horror of a husband.

I can't help but wonder if she considers it a bad trade.

Here in Texas, we had a guy who tore out his girlfriend's eyeballs, and ate them. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity, was in a state hospital. and released to a halfway house.

I think he is now back in Harris County, so I actually think the French got this one right.

I'm usually not short of words, but this time I really can't think of anything to say.

Well, in Han China they would have boiled him alive, but in water. Romans would toss the scoundrel to the lions [if there was a display for a coming public holiday], or would crucify him. Blinding, branding, drawing and quartering seems to be about right. Alternatively, a meat hook under a rib, and then use him as a tower clock pendulum above a small fire. On the top of an hour the door would be opened and he'd be allowed [prodded if need be] to shout "cuckoo".

What better way to put your uppity wife in her place than blinding her. That'll teach her to deny you sex. I'm sure the human rights and women's rights groups will be all over this one./s

I don't think they're allowed to report this kind of story in France, possibly Europe. It seems to have a lot of that "Mohamed" and "Samira" going on in this particular story.

You'd definitely want a different model since that Muslim remote has a little button on the back that says "Blow yourself to hell," and since there's no shaheed safeguard on it, you're bound to do it sooner or later.

I guess this guy didn't have any acid at hand to do this the traditional way.

Oh, btw, had a brief but insightful conversation with an Arab the other day. My wife had had noticed all the local Arab men wear white, and the women wear black, and asked me why.

The guy I asked was dressed like most of them, in pure white ghutra (apart from the iqal (the fanbelt around his head), and had his wife (at least one of them) in tow slightly behind him who was in fullback abayya, as many women in the Gulf States wear. I had heard this was just "tradition" before, but wanted to get to the historical roots of it, and wondered if he had a different take.

At first, he just came out with the standard "tradition" reply, but when pushed as to the significance of the colors for dress, he replied to me (in a thick accent) "You [should] understand, white is the color of purity, it is clean, you understand?"

So naturally I asked why the women (in their male dominated society) traditionally did not wear white, but black instead.

Sensing I was setting him up and he was falling into the trap head first, he quietly muttered a minor arabic curse word under his breath, and walked off.

Quran:

Narrated 'Aisha:

The things which annual prayer were mentioned before me (and those were): a dog, a donkey and a woman. I said, "You [Mohammad] have compared us (women) to donkeys and dogs.

"You [should] understand, white is the color of purity, it is clean, you understand?"

That's simply mysoginy in its most primitive form, is it not?

I recently came across this:

Gang-rape victim faces lashesFrom correspondents in Riyadh March 06, 2007 01:00am Article from: Agence France-Presse

A SAUDI woman who was kidnapped at knifepoint, gang-raped and then beaten by her brother was sentenced to 90 lashes - for a meeting a man who was not a relative, a newspaper reported.

In an interview with the Saudi Gazette, the 19-year-old said she was blackmailed a year ago into meeting a man who threatened to tell her family they were having a relationship outside wedlock, which is illegal in the ultra-conservative desert kingdom.

After driving off together from a shopping mall near her home, the woman and the man were stopped and abducted by a gang of men wielding kitchen knives who took them to a farm where she was raped 14 times by her captors.

Five men were arrested for the rape and given jail terms ranging from 10 months to five years by a panel of judges in the eastern city of Qatif, near the woman's hometown.

But the judges also decided to sentence the woman, identified by the newspaper only as “G,” and the man to lashes for being alone together in the car.

Unrelated men and women are forbidden from interacting in public in Saudi Arabia, which strictly enforces Islamic Sharia law.

“G” said one of the judges told she was lucky not to have been given jail time. “I was shocked at the verdict. I couldn't believe my ears,” said the woman, who has appealed against her sentence.

The woman also told the paper she tried to commit suicide because of her ordeal and was beaten by her younger brother because the rape had brought shame on their family.

Fuziyah al-Ouni, described as an activist by the paper, said she was outraged by the case. “By sentencing her to 90 lashes they are sending a message that she is guilty. No rape victim is guilty,” she said.

There are severe legal restrictions on women in Saudi Arabia, including a strict dress code required outside the home and a ban on driving.

------------

Good to hear from you.

Yup, you got it.

IMHO, the native Jordanians (not the recent "refugees") and Syrians are the ones who treat their women with the most respect. Relatively speaking, of course.

Saudis are the most primitive life form I can think of.... I've had loads of run messing with them lately, but that's another story, for another time. ;o)

"This is the result of a marriage that was arranged, not chosen," he said, pointing to the gulf separating his client, who came from southern Morocco, and his young wife, who had grown up in France.

Because if his wife had also been from Morocco, she would have lain down and taken it like Islam demands...

Ask-Imam.com > Women > Question 9511 from South Africa

A. ...It is true that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has mentioned that women have less intelligence than men. This is recorded in Bukhari Shareef. As far as decision making between husband and wife, the Shari'ah has made the husband the head of the family. The wife has to obey his lawful demands. This does not mean that he should not consult with her, or that she has no say whatsoever in the family, but it means that time final authority lies with the husband...

Ask-Imam.com > Jurisprudence and Rulings (Fiqh) > Question 12375 from Malaysia

Q. For a man in ISLAM Having sex is legal to whom your right hand posses?? I red in quran/hadith that in islam having sex with the following women is jayaz. 1. Wife 2. Slave 3. Captives of war and 4. To whom ur right hand posses respected mufti sab i understood all the first three types of women, except the last one(4). can u please explain me about the 4th category. jazakallah.

A. Slaves, captives of war and what your right hand possess all mean the same thing.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Sahih Muslim 9, No 3506:

"If your wives (or daughters) make you angry slap them."

Surat AN-NISA (WOMEN) 4:34:

YUSUFALI: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more strength than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in the husband's absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them first, Next, refuse to share their beds, And last beat them; but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means: For Allah is Most High, and great.

SHAKIR: 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.

Bukhari Volume 7, 72:715

A woman came to Muhammad and begged her to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that she it is described as being "greener" than the green veil she was wearing. Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires.

The guy who shot up the Seattle Jewish center had a "mental illness", too. So, apparently, did the guy who ran down folks in the streets of San Francisco. And the guy who ran over students at UNC.

Guess what the mental illness is called.
