Killer of Myriam al-Ashqar Sentenced to Death

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Syrian national Fathi Jaber al-Salatin, who was accused of killing Myriam al-Ashqar in November 2011, was sentenced to death on Friday.

Al-Ashqar, 28, was found dead and soaked in blood in the outskirts of Sahel Alma on November 22, 2011.

Al-Salatin, who hails from the Syrian province of Hama, was the janitor of the Our Lady of the Annunciation monastery in Baqloush and well-known in the town, where al-Ashqar used to pray several times every other week.

The janitor killed her after she managed to prevent him from raping her.

When al-Ashqar did not return home that day, the search started in Sahel Alma’s forestlands, with the participation of army troops, security forces and the town’s residents.

Parts of her clothes were found blood-soaked and buried in the ground near the janitor’s room, prompting the search crews to intensify their efforts before discovering al-Ashqar's body wrapped in a white bag in a hard-to-reach place.

In principle I am against the death penalty. But in the case of a struggling third world country such as ourselves, and for cases like that, I am reconsidering. I dont know if we can as a society afford to educate those from the bottomest layers of social ethics (the killers), or to just kill them.

Their families should be punished, more especially the parents that failed to educate them properly.

the filthy zionist scum trash and filth is not happy because naharnet is not zionist enough

It seems that even on a serious item like this you can not refrain from your "Filthy zionist scum", even when it has nothing in connection with the matter in question.
Your comments here and in other places on this net make us people around the world begin to understand the warped minds of brainwashed cretins like yourself.
You are repeating the same hate message so often that people already know to simply ignore you, as I will do from now on.

filthy Iranian revolutionary guard wannabe terrorist just got out of prison and is gracing with his steaming pile of buffalo chips.

phillipo, how come is it that whenever someone mentions israel, you appear with a reply defending that terrorist state??
You are no diffirent than jabalamel, you too keep posting your brainwashed comments and repeating the same hate message over and over again as soon as someone mentions israel.

Newsflash, just because we are against iran, it doesnt mean we are pro israel so enough with your rants.

Go get a real job instead of beeing a paid propagandist of the terrorist state of israel.

the only derogatory thing is allowing scum like you to write here

Thumb natasha 14 December 2012, 19:00

i find you have no real imput except trashing others , i have no side to take as i think , all the politicians in lebanon are scum and we need to overhaul the whole political system with new and young people to lead our country, not generation after generation of the same families ruling this country, so i suggest from ppl like you and others (educated ppl) to work for the bigger picture, which is, helping lebanon. GOD bless you all , and peace and love people. stop the hate and the bashing....

It's so true Phoenix, I don't know who is manning these posts in Naharnet but their editing process is very suspect to me.

Thumb Bandoul 14 December 2012, 19:44

Are you wishing death on a fellow Lebanese citizen who never did anything to harm you and whose only crime is to have a different political vision for the country than yours?

Thumb Bandoul 14 December 2012, 19:49

I've offered a detailed explanation about the censorship machine at Naharnet...nobody listened.

Thumb Bandoul 14 December 2012, 19:51

FleaFlow, they are the same people who kept your posts about acid and dissolving people in it.

Thumb benzona 15 December 2012, 06:24

Est-ce si difficile a comprendre? Les insultes sont et doivent etre censurees de meme que l'appel a la mort sauvage (public hanging) aren't things that should be tolerated even in archaic countries such as Lebanon. I sometimes get censured too, and I admit I cross the red line for the heck of it. It's no big deal though!
