“The prosecutor argued his extremist Islamic beliefs had influenced the killer.”
Yes. This man was raised in a culture of violence that calls for the beating of disobedient women. The Qur’an says: “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)
And in a hadith, Aisha, Muhammad’s child bride, says that 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?” (Sahih Muslim 2127)
“From gouging out his wife’s eyes because she was ‘the Islamic anti-Christ’ to genital mutilation and a gruesome murder that left a corpse detectives could not identify: The case of the Melbourne jihadi that horrified even a supreme court judge,” by Cait Kelly, Daily Mail Australia, June 3, 2018 (thanks to Kenneth):
The identity of the man who slaughtered his wife in front of their three young children before dumping her body in an empty lot will never be known, not even to the prisonmates he’ll spend the rest of his life with.
Only a select few – his traumatised children, the horrified Supreme Court judge that presided over his trail, and a handful of disgusted journalists – know the face and name of the Islamic State sympathiser who murdered his wife.
The case against RB, a pseudonym given to the 36-year-old killer, was one that horrified the Melbourne suburb of Broadmeadows, judge Lex Lasry, and even the man’s own defence council as it was revealed .
It shook the country and made locals questioning how a man living in their midst could be so violent as it was revealed he plucked his wife’s eye out, sliced open her genitals and raped her before brutally taking her life.
In handing down the sentence judge Lasry described the killer’s actions as:’ Grotesquely violent… horrific,’ and ‘disgusting.’
The 27-year-old woman had a short life marred by abuse from a husband that would culminate in her gruesome death.
At a young age she was sent to Lebanon to meet and marry the man who would eventually butcher her. The whole thing was arranged and carried out within two weeks.
The family members of the victim, who was the eldest of 10 children, would later say that before she left for Lebanon she was ‘strong,’ before she had been broken by her new husband.From the very moment they returned home to Australia, the judge wrote that he ‘dominated’ his wife.
‘Dictating who she could see, what clothes she could wear and what domestic work you required her to do.’
Three years after the newlyweds returned to Australia, she gave birth to their first child and he took a second wife ‘in a ceremony presided over by a local sheik’.
His second wife fled after six weeks of enduring his controlling and abusive behaviour.
He already showed signs of paranoia and told the Islamic Sheikh who married them that she was not a real Muslim but an ASIO spy.
‘[He] said that I was too intelligent to be a normal Muslim woman, and that I had to be an ASIO agent who was a spy,’ she told a court in March last year.
‘Sheikh just raised his eyebrows and looked at me and didn’t say anything.’
His second wife also became the target of his: ‘Domination, emotional abuse and physical assaults,’ before she took her young son and left.
His first wife stayed, bearing two more children to him before the abuse escalated into a cruel and prolonged murder.
‘You attacked your wife in front of your three children with a knife; repeatedly slashing, stabbing and cutting her to her face and body,’ the judge wrote.
Two of the children watched as their father ripped their mothers right eye out and flushed it down the toilet.
They watched as he cut off her fingers and put them insider her lower orifices.
They watched as he told them she “looked like Dajjal” – an Islamic anti-Christ, with her eye missing.
And they watched as he wrapped her body in a blanket, a plastic sheet and electrical tape and bundled it into the back of the family Corolla.
They would later tell mortified police that their father ‘slaughtered’ their mother by using a ‘big white knife.’
He put the children in the car and drove to the nearby Dallas tennis club where he buried her body under the cover of darkness.
On the way home he stopped at an all-night bakery and brought the children pastries using their mothers card….
She was alive when he cut out her eye and he had raped her during the murder.
The defence claimed his actions were influenced by a meth-induced psychosis.
The prosecutor argued his extremist Islamic beliefs had influenced the killer….
