Italians get it: Islam is not a “Get Out Of Jail Free” card

Muslim Beats Daughter With Broomstick Claims “Cultural” Reasons

(ANSA) – Rome, March 30 – The Italian Supreme Court on Friday upheld a sentence for abuse and aggravated assault by a Moroccan father against his 12-year-old daughter.

Defense lawyers maintained that the father, who allegedly beat his daughter with a broom handle for “corrective” purposes after she could not properly recite the Koran, did so because of “cultural” reasons and should be given a lighter sentence accordingly.

The judge dismissed the defense’s argument, calling the treatment “violent and unjustifiable” whether from Italian nationals or foreigners.
