Husband beats wife to death for defying 'orders'
By Samir Salama, Bureau Chief
A man beat his wife to death because he says she "disobeyed his orders and looked out of the balcony", a police source said.
The incident occurred at midnight on Friday. The Syrian man has been arrested and charged with the 20-year-old woman's murder.
The man, a hairdresser, was returning home from his shop at around 10.30pm, when he saw his second wife, also Syrian, looking out of the balcony of his flat on the first floor.
He got angry, rushed to his flat and started beating her all over her body.
The woman's screams forced his first wife who lives in the same flat, out of bed and she tried to stop him. However, he overpowered her and continued beating his second wife up for half an hour until she fainted.
The 30-year-old man called an ambulance but paramedics found his wife dead.
The accused told police he had not meant to kill her.
"I just wanted to discipline her after she disobeyed my orders. She died while I was hitting her for daring to look out of the balcony," he is said to have told interrogators.
"I used to beat my wives but I never thought that beating would kill any of them. It was just my way of disciplining them," he said.
His first wife told police she had tried hard to stop him but he had beaten her and pushed her away.
"He continued to beat her for almost half an hour before she died," she said.
The accused has been referred to the prosecution on charges of beating his wife to death.

Geez, I wonder if she was looking out of the balcony because HE WAS COMING HOME? What a freaking idiot. Unreal the way women are treated over there.
The only thing surprising about this article is that there are male Syrian hairdressers.
Religion of peace alert BUMP!!
Sometimes, my undying respect for cultural diversity is tested.
He should sue the construction industry; afterall, it happened on the balcony..., it must be the balcony's fault, right?
Do I really need a sarcasm tag?
If you were a Syrian man would you want an unclean woman touching your hair? < /almost sarcasm>
That's what you and I would think, but I take it she was forbidden to look outside from the balcony.
Hey, she deserved it. She looked out over the balcony! Just remember, Islam is the religion of peace.
I'm waiting for condemnation from NOW... here it comes... any time now... standing by...
And the feminazis in this country think THEY live in a patriarchal society!!! Funny thing is, I know feminazis who go out with Middle Eastern men and accept being beaten.
These people (if you can call them that) are uncivilized and insane; worse than medieval. Animals would not be so cruel.
I say and continue to say, the followers of the Koran should all be "tango uniform".
What a mysoginistic bastard. Imagine hating women to the point of beating them to death and have it all sanctioned by your faith, clergy, state, community... Ignorant fu*ks all of them and they presume to be superior to the west? yeah right!! God what a sad existance for these women.
These are Gulf Arabs (which makes it even more bizarre).
You might be correct here. In a gender-segregated culture like the mid-east, men and women would not be allowed to touch each other's hair.
I love learning the nuances of different cultures... it's so fascinating!
Who's to say one culture is superior to another? Let a thousand multicultural flowers bloom!
I don't think I ever had undying respect of cultural diversity.
No tag needed;)
Oils well that ends well...
Well, she was looking out the window. The "religion of peace" can't have that.
Take No Doz, you'll need it while waiting.
God have mercy on the man who raises his hand to me. He would get his on the spot or by God he would never be able to sleep again.
well, what do you expect in the land where cats are enslaved
You would be surprised.
They should take it further and exterminate those vile creatures.
Incredible as it may seem, its been my experience that y'never know.
No! No! This man is ignorant! Ignorant! You use balconies when you are playing with babies.
SHAMON! HE! HE !HE!
Why would any woman want to become a Muslim???
Yeah, yeah, make fun. But it STARTS with looking out of the balcony.
Don't they have male barbers?
Man, they fine you two goats for beating one of your wives to death. I bet he's pissed at her for dying.
"I know feminazis who go out with Middle Eastern men and accept being beaten."
Why would they do that? To show how open minded they are or becuase deep down inside they want a "Take Charge" kinda guy?
I thought it was that there was a male hairdresser who was married. To a woman. Two of them, even.
Not barbers, "Hairdressers"!
Any US MSM going to follow this story?
That's what I am trying hard to remember...
Grab a cot and wait in shifts with pabianice
"Imagine hating women to the point of beating them to death and have it all sanctioned by your faith, clergy, state, community... "
While I'll agree women have a tough lot in the Muslim world at least the State is not sanctioning this, unless by sanction you mean being charged with murder. Hopefully justice will be served and this POS will be punished
For looking out of the balcony? Okaaaay. Well, at least she won't make that mistake again. What could first wifey be thinking now?
I haven't seen it yet. I found it in the UAR paper but got led to indirectly via http://www.hasibokos.com/
Maybe move in with Mom? Don't know if that is done there.
This is sick. Too bad the other one didn't sneak up on him with a big frying pan.
