U.K. jails mom for killing son over Koran study

— A British judge Monday sentenced a woman he called a “devoted and loving mother” to at least 17 years in prison for beating her son to death after he failed to memorize passages from the Koran.

A jury at Cardiff Crown Court in Wales convicted 33-year-old Sara Ege last month of murdering 7-year-old Yaseen and burning his body to destroy the evidence.

Judge Wyn Williams said Ege beat Yaseen repeatedly with a stick over several months, causing internal injuries.

He said that, on the day he died in 2010, Yaseen had been kept home from school to memorize verses from the Muslim holy book, and that his failure “was the trigger for the beating” that killed him.

The judge agreed with defense arguments about India-born Ege’s state of mind, saying she was “a devoted and loving mother” who suffered from depression and had been a victim of domestic violence.

Still, he said, she subjected her son to “prolonged cruelty.”

yep, hardwood. Ya gottl love that sharia stuff. Wonder when obama is going to unleash a little for us? After his screwed up childhood and longtime membership in the church of hate whitey, you know its gotta happen. Probably by executive order. Maybe just after he turns his back on Israel and allows islam to take it out.
