Canada: Syrian man who beat his wife says he did not know it’s against the law

When a severely battered woman escaped to a hospital with horrific injuries, the police quickly arrested her refugee husband. However, as soon as he appeared before the judge, he was captured smiling sadistically before shamelessly uttering 6 appalling words to the court.

As the endless sea of Muslim migrants continues to sweep across the West, gracious hosts are discovering what we’ve warned all along. The asylum seekers they’ve claimed were fleeing to our shores for acceptance and freedom are actually spreading the same religious and political tyranny that plagues their own countries. Unfortunately, it’s taking hearing the unabashed justification of Islamic brutality straight from the mouths of these so-called refugees to finally remove the blinders and muzzle of political correctness.

When Syrian Muslim refugee Mohamad Rafia, 54, fled to Canada, he brought his wife Raghda Aldndal along with him. This is exceptionally rare, as 72 percent of asylum seekers are men, proving that many are leaving their women and children behind. Although Rafia refused to leave his wife behind in Syria, authorities discovered that he had also smuggled in barbaric Islamic fundamentals.

The Telegraph Journal reports that after confessing to beating his wife with a hockey stick for at least half an hour, Rafia shamelessly told the court that he isn’t guilty of any crime because he “was not aware of the law” or that it forbade wife beating.

“He’s saying that he was not aware of the law and he was coming from a background where the laws are completely different,” interpreter Abdelhaq Hamza said for Rafia during a May 24 bail hearing.

“Why didn’t they explain the law when we first came?” Rafia said.

Rafia’s defense is that he is innocent and the immigration officials are at fault because they allegedly didn’t inform him that it’s illegal to beat one’s wife in Canada. As outrageous as the claim is on its own, Rafia’s defense quickly crumbled after it was uncovered that he was, in fact, educated on Canadian laws specifically regarding domestic violence.

Perhaps the most disturbing detail of the case is that Aldndal not only defended her husband but wife beating as well. She told officials that she covered up her husband’s abuse because it is “culturally accepted” in Syria.

“Aldndal stated that being assaulted by her spouse is culturally accepted from the country they are from,” the Fredericton brief police stated.

  1. Domestic Violence and wife beating was accepted as normal in Western countries until recent times, and happen still, although they are now criminal acts. Many Islamic teachings also need to be brought up to date/reformed.

  2. Renate Chaudry: Your remark that ‘many Islamic teachings also need to be brought up to date/reformed’ in connection with this article may be misleading some people. The Prophet (peace be on him) never beat any of his wives.

  3. Yes, wife beating is there in all cultures and countries, and it is not, as the article claims, confined to Islam and Muslim countries.

    In fact, it is NOT part of Islam, at all!

    The article gives the impression that wife beating is something that does not happen in Canada or other Western countries. Something like terrorists are confined to the religion of Islam, only. In fact, quite the contrary is true. Those terrorists have NOTHING whatsoever to do with Islam!
