Muslim Arizona Mom Beat, Tortured Daughter For Refusing Arranged Marriage
As almost an afterthought in this story is that the victim's father actually tried to cut her throat. God forbid an attempted honor killing is reported... An 'honor beating' is so much more palatable to the masses.
An Iraqi mother accused of beating her teenage daughter for not going along with an arranged marriage pleaded not guilty Monday in a case police said involved burning the teen on her face and chest with a hot spoon. Yusra Farhan, 50, entered the plea to charges of aggravated assault, unlawful imprisonment and resisting arrest. The daughter, 19, refused to participate in an arranged marriage with a 38-year-old man, authorities said. Two other defendants, the victim's sister, 18-year-old Tabarak Altameemi, and father, 45-year-old Mohammed Altameemi, also pleaded not guilty to assault and unlawful imprisonment. MyFoxPhoenix.com cited court records showing that on Feb. 7 Mohammed Altameemi got mad at his daughter because she left night class with a boy. The father picked her up at school and took her home. He is accused of cutting his daughter’s neck with a knife. Police say he admitted he was trying to kill her, but Tabarak Altameemi intervened.The mother defended her actions by stating she didn't really beat her daughter, but only "slightly" beat her. And the girl's father was only going to "slightly" behead her... Even Fox News cowers to political correctness.
