The following story is another disturbing example of why the National Visa Lottery and immigration reform are necessary. Muslim parents in San Antonio, Texas, (here on a visa) beat, burned, and choked their 15-year old daughter for refusing forced marriage to a stranger.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department, Abdulah Fahmi Kala Al Hishmawi and Hamdiyah Sabah Al Hishmawi used broomsticks and hot oil to torture their daughter Maarib Al Hishmawi. The teen girl was also reportedly choked nearly unconscious.

Conflict arose in 2017, when Maarib refused to marry a strange adult man located in another city. A marriage arranged by her parents, that reportedly would’ve netted them a $20,000 payday. After enduring relentless beatings, the teenager finally appeared to agree to the marriage.

However, in late January 2018, Maarib walked off her Taft High School campus hoping to find safety. With the help of FBI investigators, local police found her at an anonymous organization that helps abused children.

At that point, Maarib told the authorities about the abuse. “This young lady … was subjected to some pretty bad abuse because she didn’t want to be married to this person,” said Sheriff Javier Balazar.

Now 16, Maarib and her five siblings are in the custody of child protective services and her parents are in jail. When the father was being led away in handcuffs, he  shouted to reporters that “his daughter is to blame.”

Time’s Up

Now, it’s bad enough to know that this type of abuse, and sometimes murder, happens with young girls in Arab countries. But, to see it happening in American cities is wholly unacceptable. This type of violence has no place in a civilized society.

It’s far to high a price to pay for being politically correct. 

Or as Leftists call it, “tolerant and accepting.” These antiquated, and often barbaric, Muslim traditions are a direct contradiction to the alleged values of the radical feminists pushing the #MeToo agenda.

And yet, they choose to remain silent while Islamic laws and religion victimize young girls and women. Though we have no doubt they do so, with the hope nobody will notice their glaring hypocrisy.

We noticed.
