There is no bond like that between a mother and her child. Mothers will do anything for their children, like take them on vacations, put up with incessant whining, and even force them to marry their own cousins – the latter of those is what Florida Muslim Sahar Thabit tried to get her 17-year-old daughter to do. Thabit’s daughter, however, had grown up in the US and didn’t want any part of her mother’s backward Islamic customs. That’s when things, notably a kitchen knife, got really heated.
Thabit’s daughter had been talking to a guy online from Yemen, her family’s country of origin, and the two had formed a bond. Thabitch was infuriated by this. I can understand wanting to protect your child from online predators, but that was not any part of the madwoman’s reasoning. Thabit’s sole motivation for what she was about to do was to preserve her twisted sense of family honor. She took a kitchen knife, set it on top of a heated stove, and shoved it onto her daughter’s arms. With each time she caught her daughter disobeying her and talking to her online friend, the knife was heated up again.
An investigator noted the burns seemed consistent with child abuse. Thabit’s father claimed no wrongdoing had occurred, that his granddaughter had accidentally touched the heated stove. Yes, the teen had accidentally touched the stove. Three times on each arm. And each time left the same burn pattern. …what a stupid old piece of dirt, if he actually expects anyone to buy that. He should be arrested and charged as an accessory.
Thabit is currently in custody.
