Man suspected of burning his children's tongues with hot knife

By Liel Keizer, Haaretz Correspondent
Tags: child abuse, Israel news

A Beit Shemesh man, 45, was arrested on Thursday for allegedly abusing three of his twelve children repeatedly, at times pressing a burning hot knife to their tongues in order to teach them to speak to him with respect.

The man was arrested following a complaint issued to the police by the town's social services who were in contact with the family after the children's mother was indicted last month for child abuse.

The mother, who was called in the media "Taliban mother" due to the severe nature of the abuse, was sentenced to 4-years in prison, and six months suspended sentence for the abuse of her 12 children.

The father allegedly only abused three children, as he said that they were the most insolent.

5. Sounds like the parents were practicing really old time religion
such things have their origins in the laws of Harambee albeit I think then it more to do with proving the veracity of the speaker

I hope this jerk gets a stiff sentance

8. How do you feel about gasoline being thrown in the faces of girls trying to go to school
or fathers brutally murdering their daughters in "honor" killings?

You're always so concerned about the abuse of kids in other cultures. This report really hit a sore spot. Why?

15. The Vegster was just doing a drive-by smear
He won't be back in this thread. All he wanted was the chance to work in the "no matter what, Muslims are always WORSE" slander.

11. Afghanistan is nowhere near the Middle East
Perhaps you should have supported the Marxist government of Afghanistan which gave women full freedom and equality.

As to honor killings, they are common across the Third World, particulary in Africa.

YOUR RESPONSE:

Afghanistan is NEVER mentioned except by YOU.

Afghanistan is "nowhere near the Middle East?"

Sounds like YOU need a map.

Oh, which "Marxist government" gave women of that state "full freedom and equality."?

"As to honor killings, they are common across the Third World, particulary in Africa."

So, is this a "justification?"

14. A few words of clarification to assist Veggie not have her new thread topic derailed...
Edited on Tue Dec-08-09 07:06 AM by Violet_Crumble
So pay attention, people. THE SUBJECT IS MUSLIMS! We don't want to hear about Hindus or Jews or anything else but Muslims. We would prefer it if the Muslims are Arabs as that ticks two boxes off on our List Of Bad People Who Live In Evil Cultures, but Muslims in Africa will also do the trick and get us all worked up. What we will not tolerate is any mention of whacked out religious extremists who abuse their families if those whacked out religious extremists are Jewish. That would be totally unacceptable and will lead to us informing you that it's nasty and antisemitic and reeks of anti-Israel bigotry to pay too much attention to that, and then we'll go back and do a word count of yr posts and produce a mini-report that proves that you spend inordinately far more time talking about Jewish extremists than Muslim ones. And if anyone dares to point out that all we do is go on about Muslim religious extremists, to the point that if the religious extremists in the OP are any other religion, we'll thoughtfully bring things back on track and give a timely mention of honour killings and other things that we've decided are associated only with Muslims, we'll write them a Haiku-style post that's all about how much Palestinians suck and doesn't have anything to do with this thread...

9. Horrendous
At least, these actions are being punished by the law and condemned in the media. I hope this will deter other ultra-authoritarian child abusers.

16. i have my doubts..
Edited on Tue Dec-08-09 11:04 PM by pelsar
there is something especially hideous when child abusers believe they are doing good, via discipline. I don't believe any law enters in to their heads that what they are doing is illegal or even wrong.

and they did have god on their side.....she considered herself so religious, so modest she covered her whole body as in those women who lived under the taliban (hence her name...the taliban mother)
