Florida: Pakistani kept wife captive in home for 3 years

via Wife says she wasn’t let out of Wellington house for three years – Sun Sentinel.

Alabed-mug-shot

A woman told Palm Beach County deputies she stayed inside her Wellington home for three years, afraid of her husband, who is now in jail facing domestic battery charges.

Qasem Alabed, 42, swatted his pregnant wife — whose family lives in Morocco — with a television remote, and as she scrambled for safety he lashed her across the thigh with a cable, she told deputies Wednesday through an Arabic interpreter, according to his arrest report. This apparently stemmed from an argument in their Wellington home, but the arrest report is redacted and unclear. Authorities would not comment further on the case.

The victim told deputies “that she has not been let out of the house in the past three years that she has been here in the USA,” the arrest report said. It isn’t clear whether she really never once stepped outside.

Alabed, who is from Pakistan, subjected his wife, unnamed in the report, to three years of torment since she arrived in the United States, deputies said. He beat her daily and controlled her communications; he tried to alienate her from her family in Morocco, but sometimes when he fell asleep, she would sneak a hushed international call, according to the report.

The beatings did not stop even after she became pregnant three months ago. She feared for her unborn child and her 3-year-old son, she said.

“Be brave and leave and find the police,” a family friend told her, according to the report. But experts in domestic violence say threats of violence, made credible by actual violence, are the abuser’s upper hand.

Yet after the scuffle with the remote control and the cable, she somehow escaped with her son, welts still on her skin. The deputy recorded her statement at the Wellington City Hall, only a few blocks from the apartment listed as Alabed’s in his booking report.

The deputy took pictures of her leg then drove her and her son to be admitted to a safe location.

Alabed faces felony charges of aggravated domestic battery and battery of a pregnant victim. Since Thursday afternoon, he has been locked in Palm Beach County Jail on $20,000 bond.

It’s also unclear from the report what tactic he used to keep her in the home. Experts say there are several, including threatening to kill her if she left.

“We do see cases where someone may be held for a couple of days, especially if they have been battered,” said Alexcia Cox, an assistant state attorney in Palm Beach County who heads the office’s domestic violence unit.

“I’ve never seen as much as three years, but several days to a week,” she said.

Alabed’s first marriage ended in divorce, records show. His wife had never been married when they wed in a religious ceremony on Dec. 10, 2010. He was 40, and she was 27.

Previously, according to a state beverage license, Alabed sold beer and lottery tickets at Carnival Mini Mart in Lakeland, east of Tampa. He’d been charged once with making copies of CDs and trying to sell them.

When the Palm Beach County deputy arrested him close to midnight on Wednesday, he went quietly.

Will he be deported? Will American taxpayers be saddled with a single mom who only speaks Arabic?

  1. Just like home in muslimland. Obama is working hard to bring this here for us…

    • I think he learned about domestic violence from tv and the news media glorifying it, I am sure everyone here knew about the existence of domestic violence in America before they knew there was a religion called islam. They just playing stupid

      • @Educatestupidpeople, You are the uneducated stupid people. They learn this from the not holy koran as in

        The Quran, chapter 4 (An-Nisa), verse 34:
        “ Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.

        They learn this from their fathers. The whole culture is taught this!
        They try & hide by the teaching of tiqyah(to deceive).

        We need to stop immigrating them because of these educated facts.

        You uneducated Jackass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • @ no sharia
          But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance.

          So if you fear arrogance from them, then firstly you must advise them. If they don’t listen and persist then don’t go to bed with them,

          forsake them in bed

          but if they still don’t listen and persist then finally you have the permission to strike them:

          strike them, it is forbidden to strike the in the face or in a manner or force that will cause injury but to strike them as you would a child who misbehaves.
          Verse 35 if this sura says “And if you fear a breach between the two, then appoint judge from his people and a judge from her people; if they both desire agreement, Allah will effect harmony between them, surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.” Here family on both side can be mediators to help solve whatever issues led to the problem and avoid any punishment. Fact is Islam gave women rights (owning land and inheritance) among other rights before any other religion or government.

          It is nice that you are trying to learn about the Koran but you should start reading the bible if you are interested in learning about women abuse and submission.
          “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Genesis 3:16)

          Not only does the Woman get blamed for the Fall, but God decides to multiply her sorrow, plus, she must submit to her husband like a slave.
          All this and we still let Christians into this country why???

          • @Educatestupidpeople, I know all about the bible & the koran that is why I am an atheist.

            There is a big difference between islam & judeo christianity & other religions. It is that Judeo/ Christianity & any one else that does not believe does not teach & direct in it’s books to kill muslims or un-believers in there books while the koran & hadith says to kill the jews & unbelievers! The examples from the koran & hadiths of this is in my comment down below to your other smarmy question.

            The other big difference is that judeo christianity respects secular law whereby no religion can use the power of government to establish their religion. Islam does not!

            & another difference between islam & all other religions is that they have not had leaders throughout the world claim to take over other lands to make islam for everyone called a caliphate. All other people of other religions are only fighting back since islam is the aggressor. It is self defense from the war mongering death cult of islam.

            Oh, & another big difference is that the other religions do not teach or instruct that if a person leaves their religion they will be put to death.

            But islam does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Go pound sand up your rear end you islime B.S.artist………………….!!!!

  2. When one of these jerks are jailed for beating there wives the jailers should quietly kick the crap out of them for a change!!! A tit for tat!!!

    • i know this family qasem is not a jerk , she lied to the police because she got mad at her husband

      • Insulting eachother as above and using language not fit for printing., does only one thing ,no one takesb your opinions seriously. If it is true that she was in fear of her life , beaten , abused, than he has to pay for his deeds, and deported. She should be given help and a new identity, remember honor killing! It has nothing to do with that they are Muslims. domestic violence and murder is almost daily mentioned in our local newspapers. It is a shame in our society, as well all over the world. Education is the only answer. Let us talk to eachother as civilized people, honey cathes more flies.

  3. Sharia says all they have to have to justify beating their wife, or mistreating her/them in other ways is to ‘think’ it is so therefore it is. Basically the malignant moe moe the pedo has taught his worshippers to be just like him – a sociopathic, paranoid, narcissists.

    • I think the most pedophile people belong to the church they are called priests not moe moe, those are the ones you are mad at for violating your childhood.

  4. WHY were they in the USA in the first place???!??!
    They are islamic and there is NO SUCH THING AS A RELIGIOUS marriage ceremony!
    islam is NOT a religion it is a militant political system which encompasses ALL aspects of life….and life is dictated by the laws called sharia!

    • I would like to read the book of sharia law where did you buy your copy from.

      • I got my information about the koran from many credible sources including wikipedia. As well, the many news outlets that speak about sharia law being practiced in every country that has more than 2% muslim population in any country & to what degree. The higher the precentage rate of muslim population in any country the muslims feel more empowered to practice strict forms of sharia.

        Freedom of speech it is a great deterrent to keep the public from slime like your self from deceiving the public of islime & it’s real intentions to monopolies & enforce islam on everyone else in the world as it is happening in many countries across Europe,Africa & the middle east.

        What is the proof? The proof is in the hundreds of reporters with news outlets reporting it, clerics/imams/sheiks decaring it so on video, as well as the heads of these countries declaring it so on many videos.

        That is all the self aware of these news outlets,videos & the koran stating to kill the unbelievers. This is more than enough evidence in order to have proof.

        Quran:
        Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush
        Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.
        Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
        Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”
        Quran (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”
        Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”
        Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves”

        Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”
        Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”
        Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-”

        From the Hadith:

        Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

        SO, STOP LYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        How about you? Where did you get your information from that the muslims do not practice sharia in some form or another where ever they live?

        • hahaha like i said i am here to educate your stupid ass. i am sure you was not born an atheist maybe an asshole but not an atheist, your lack of faith in your parents religion led to to deny god. as far as i am concerned you are a lost cause. Islam is a peaceful religion no matter what you are led to think. every religion took up arm against other did you forget the crusades. what you are quoting is verses that came to encourage self defense. how can what you say about muslims be right if the percentage of fanatics is less than.00001% out ofthe billions of muslims world wide. again i forgive your ignorance because like i said your info is coming from wikipedia and the unreliable news media. showing a youtube video made by racist motherfuckers dont mean shit. take a look at the good true side of islam practiced by muslims worldwide and you might see the truth.

        • you dont seein the judo and christianity book a call to kill muslims because at the time those book were written islam did not exist. but if you see that since the begining of islam and until now they are fighting islam and you are a living proff of this eventhough you represent the atheists.

  5. BEATING YOUR WIFE IS ALLOWED BY THE KORAN FOR NO REASON. THE MORACCAN WOMAN CAN BE SENT HOME TO MORACCO IF SHE WISHES. WHY IS HER HUSBABD NOT CHARGED WITh SLAVERY ALSO? WHY IS HE HERE OBVOUSLY HE HAS NO SKILLS THAT OUR COUNTRY NEEDS, AFTER SENTENCING HE SHOULD BE DEPORTED BACK TO PAKISTAN , AND PUT ON NO FLYING LIST AND ANY ENTERING LIST TO OUR COUNTRY. IF HER LIFE IS AT DANGER, SHE SHOULD LEARN ENGLISH, AND GET A JOB AND EDUCATE HERSELF. HUMAN RIGHTS DICTATE THAT WE SHOULD HELP. HER IDENTITY NEEDS TO BE CHANGED.
    ABOVE ALL WE NEED TO CURTAIL ANY IMMIGRATION FROM THESE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE NO HUMAN RIGHTS AN DISCRIMINATION TO WOMEN. SHAME ON OUR GOVERNMENT THAT ALLOWS AND PROMOTES ISLAMIC IMMIGRATION, THEY BRING THEIR LAWS HERE AND INSTEAD OF ADAPTING THEY CREATE JIHAD AND DEMAND SHARIA LAW. WE GIVE THEM FREE HOUSING , MEDICAL CARE, AND THEY HATE US EVEN MORE . NO PREVIOUS IMMIGRANTS HAD THIS TYPE OF HELP. WHY DO MUSLIMS GET SPCIAL HELP? IS THERE SOME SPECIAL NEED FOR THEM THAT THE GOVERNMENT KEEPS SECRET? WHY ARE SECURITY ADVISERS TO THE PRESIDENT MEMBERS OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD? WHY WAS ONE MEMBER OF THE GOVERNMENT ALLOWED TO TAKE HIS OATH ON A KORAN ? WHY ON THE 4th OF JULY WAS AMUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE AS A GUEST A GUEST? WHY IS THE BREAKING OF THE RAMADAN FAST DINNER CELEBRATED IN THE WHITE HOUSE.? I HAVE MANY MANY MORE QUESTIONS BUT I AM AT PRESENT CRYING FOR OUR COUNTRIES FUTURE AND THE TEARS IN MY EYE WONT ALLOW MORE COMMENTS! GOD BLESS OUR NATION AND KEEP FREEDOM OF SPEACH ALIVE AND PEACE FOR ALL.

    • I is funny how people always assume that anybody of Asian or African countries who are accused of a crime is a Muslim. I can guarantee that you never read any of the Koran or seen it, there is no where in the Koran where it says to arbitrary beat your wife. This might come as a surprise to you but Muslim women are most respected by their husbands and communities. Domestic violence is not tolerated by Islam, domestic violence is done by men who lack the self confidence if you wipe away your tears and look up the statistic in the US and compare the number of domestic violence victims you would find that the ratio of Muslim domestic violence victims in the us to the US Muslim population is nothing compared to Christian domestic violence victims. Contrary to popular beliefs ignorance is not bliss if you do your own research instead of going with the heard you will be surprised. People need to stop being stupid acting so proud of having freedom of religion but only for yourself , the truth is weather you like it or not Islam is the world second largest religion (21%+) of the worlds population after Christianity (33%+) of the worlds population. And Islam is the worlds fastest growing religion.

      • Educatestupidpeople, You taqiyah lying filth!

        The passage that I gave before up above is incorrect! It is a revised version made up by the taqiyah lying muslim leaders to deceive unbelievers.

        The original & the correct verse is the real verse down below.

        “Men have authority over women because God 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 God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is high, supreme.” (Dawood’s version of the Koran, Quran, 4:34)

        The Koran does say to beat your wife!!!!!!!!!!!!

        The man is not superior to the woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        & fu*ck your wealth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        A woman is not a man’s property. She is her own person & the man is not her guarding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        She does not have to be obedient as if the man is her master!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        And she is not a garment to be worn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        She is a human being & her own boss the man is not her master or her boss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        muslim scholar who teaches how to beat your wife with a rod on tv?

        http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/06/islamic-scholar-jassem-al-mutawa-wife-beating-in-islam-treats-women-suffering-from-masochism.html

        Jassem Al-Mutawa says on MEMRI television (holding several long wooden rods in his hand): Today, we will discuss imposing discipline in the family. Sometimes, family disciplining is misunderstood, and therefore, in the modern era, there is a lot of domestic violence, carried out by means of rods such as these. As a result, marital relations disintegrate, leading to instability and divorce. Family disciplining is a right of the husband toward his wife, and vice versa.
        “Men are the guardians of women.” Allah says: “As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them, do not share their bed, and beat them.”

        :/ :/ :/ :/

  6. The tactic abusers use to keep them in the home is fear. Reality is that the risk of homicide goes up a whopping 75 percent when you leave an abusive relationship. Abusers might do anything to keep control of you, including murdering you if they feel like they’re losing control.

    It might not be easy for others to understand why she stayed. But it was not only her life she had to be concerned about losing if she left, but her children’s. Many times I’ve been asked, “why didn’t you just leave?” when my life was threatened repeatedly. That question usually means the person doesn’t understand that domestic violence is ultimately about power and control, something so important to abusers that many kill in an attempt to keep it and to keep the victim from moving on.
