More Muslim honor violence in the U.S.
Rare honesty spoken in a news report by someone on a university campus. But did you catch the last part? The mother was released but ordered not to have any contact with the daughter? What judge does that? She’s a teenager who lives in the same home, was verbally and physically abused and the parents arranged for her to marry a cousin. How are they going to avoid contact?

HOLLYWOOD – A Hollywood mother is accused of burning her daughter with a hot knife because of an Internet relationship.
Sahar Thabit, 35, faces three counts of child abuse.
According to Hollywood Police, the seventeen year old girl’s mother “put a knife on the stove, heating the metal on the knife and placing it on the child’s arms.”
Police began investigating after a classmate at South Broward High School reported that she saw three burns on her arms.
The family is devout Muslim.
“She was brought to me because her mother and father burned her because she was communicating with a young boy on the Internet,” says Somy Ali who runs South Florida-based ‘No More Tears’.
Somy Ali says she is not sure if the teenager is still communicating with the man over the internet.
“I think she liked communicating with the boy. He even called her house and tried to ask the father for her hand in marriage but he refused because the girl was promised to marry a cousin.”
