Canada: Refugee

CANADA — After Raghda Aldndal’s husband Mohamad Rafia, 54, beat her so badly with a hockey stick that she needed medical attention, Canadian police immediately arrested her husband who is a Syrian refugee.
Reportedly, Rafia was mystified by the charges, because beating one’s wife is not only an acceptable practice in Syria, it’s actually mandated in the Qur’an:
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)
During a May 24 bail hearing, Rafia’s interpreter explained to the court, “He’s saying that he was not aware of the law and he was coming from a background where the laws are completely different.”
“Why didn’t they explain the law when we first came?” Rafia asked.  Smiling, Rafia told the court that he is innocent, because immigration officials never told him that it’s illegal to beat one’s wife in Canada. However, that line of reasoning didn’t get him very far when it was revealed that the refugee really was told that there are Canadian laws specifically against domestic violence.
With angry welts all over her body, Aldndal proceeded to defend her husband, telling officials that such abuse 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.
According to her testimony, Aldndal said that Rafia often beat her, and on May 18, he threatened to kill her if she ever left him. She initially claimed that the injuries came from falling in the bathtub after a family friend took her to Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital, which reported her extensive injuries to authorities.
Rafia pleaded guilty on May 26 to causing bodily harm and uttering threats.
The police report falsely says that all domestic abuse is illegal in Syria and that “if the aggressor is caught, they will go to jail.” However, while domestic violence without just cause is punishable, Sharia law states that violence against women by husbands or fathers for disobedience or defiance is justified, and there is no punishment. Syrian women are not typically granted divorces from abusive husbands; Sharia courts usually force reconciliation.

Canadian JT Hate

Why do they hate Trudeau so much?

Really slow with marijuana legalization, took in 50k refugees from Syria, accepted refugees crossing the Canada-US border following the Trump election, broke his promise on election reformation despite it being a campaign promise, some scandals involving his cabinet like one who turned out to not be where she thought she came from and a military officer who vastly overstated his role in some Afghanistan operations, his father was PM decades ago and was bad for Alberta's energy industry so the name Trudeau is poison around those parts, I think the budget was pretty bad for middle-class Canadians but I haven't looked into it too much.

At least in Ontario, the Liberal name is pretty tarnished after over a decade in power and plenty of scandals. However, most of the criticism I see levied toward the federal Liberals are to do with Trudeau's immigration and refugees policies. My city used to have a lot of Chinese immigrants from just before and after the Hong Kong handover and now they're being outnumbered by Arab immigrants, which bothers them.

Canadian colonel pleads guilty to murders, sex crimes

The disgraced commander of Canada's largest air force base pleaded guilty Monday to 86 lurid crimes, including two murders, two sexual assaults and dozens of burglaries at women's homes.

Colonel Russell Williams, 47, a married pilot who once flew the jet used to ferry Canada's prime minister as well as the British royal family on a visit, displayed no emotion as he admitted to his crimes in a Belleville, Ontario courtroom.

He faces life in prison, with no possibility of parole for at least 25 years.

Police arrested Williams in February for the disappearance and death of a 27-year-old woman last heard from the previous month. He was caught when the tire treads of his vehicle were matched at a police roadside checkpoint to tracks at the crime scene.

Williams was later charged with the murder of a female corporal under his command at the Trenton military base in November, as well as in two home invasions in which two women were confined and sexually assaulted.

He was also charged with an additional 82 counts of break-and-enter and attempted break-and-enter in Ottawa, Belleville, and a third locality, Tweed.

A stash of women's undergarments taken by police from Williams' Ottawa residence were linked to burglaries near his home and job.

An agreed statement of facts read out in court traced the escalation of his offences that culminated in two sexual assaults and two murders.
 
"Given the seriousness of charges, it's important for the court to have a full account of the facts," said prosecutor Lee Burgess. "These facts will be extremely disturbing."

The court was shown photographs -- recovered from Williams' computer -- of him wearing the stolen undergarments in his victims' bedrooms and masturbating. Some of the undergarments belonged to young girls.

The stolen lingerie was meticulously categorized and stored in bags and boxes discovered at his Ottawa home, which he shared with is wife of 19 years. The court heard that he periodically disposed of his loot when he had accumulated too much.

Dressed in a dark suit and grey button-down shirt, Williams responded to each charge: "Guilty, your honour."
The court heard that only 17 homeowners had reported their homes had been broken into, while 61 others went undetected prior to Williams' arrest and confession to police.

Most of the break-ins occurred at night, and at least once while he appeared to be in his military uniform.
Williams had commanded Canada's busiest air force base, the 437 Squadron in Trenton, east of Toronto, for more than a year prior to his arrest. Previously he was in charge of Canada's secretive Camp Mirage in Dubai.

While in prison, he attempted suicide and held a hunger strike, but cooperated fully with investigators.

G20 Officer Sues YouTube and Users

When he first saw a video of a Toronto constable threatening to arrest a G20 protester for blowing bubbles, one YouTube user was so livid, he couldn’t stop writing comments.

In fact, the man, who uses the alias “theforcebewithme,” can’t even remember writing the specific comment that now has him defending a $1.2 million defamation lawsuit launched by Toronto’s now notorious “Officer Bubbles.”

Const. Adam Josephs seeks to compel the Google-owned YouTube to reveal the identity of the person who created and posted the videos as well as any information it has on the 24 other users who made allegedly defamatory remarks.

The thing I do like about the Canadian system is that (much like the U.K.), the losing participant in Canadian lawsuits not only have to pay their own legal fees, but the court may order them to pay the winner’s bills as well !! This is done, in order to cut out the millions of “frivolous” lawsuits that still tie up American courts.

This will be considered “frivolous”, and “Officer Bubbles” is going to have to pay for Youtubes army of lawers, and their travel expences to Canada. I hope you like working for free for the next 20 years Bubbles.
