Taking a Break

June 7, 2011

Hi everyone.

I have been trying to post, but it’s been increasingly difficult.

I don’t believe in writing when it’s forced.

It’s painful, because I have multiple family issues that require extreme and utmost attention.

I don’t short change my family.

I’m a WIFE,  a Mother, and a Daughter.  I work full time – this is not my job. I don’t make any money here.  I must leave for a while to attend to two very seriously life altering situations in my life and that of my family.  I can only ask for your prayers.  My mother has grown seriously ill and potentially fatally.  I am also going to have a baby.  I am not a young woman, so it’s been difficult.  But I can’t short change my writing either.  So, I am putting the blog down for a while.

I plan to return.  I LOVE writing, politics, history and science and I’m a female, which means I have an OPINION.  But MY FAMILY COMES FIRST.

I appreciate everyone’s comments.  The good, the bad and even the ugly.

Shalom

Wisconsin – Oconto County – Step daughter (14 year old girl) attempts to kill pregnant step mom with ANTI-Freeze. Chyanne Otto is a disturbed female.

January 21, 2011

Should we now consider a age requirement for buying anti-freeze?

Chyanne is on her way to a personal hell that she created.  If she’s lucky.  This would mean that she has remorse and a conscience.  It doesn’t sound that way from her diary.  The below statement is admission that she was FULLY aware of the fact that this was REALLY WRONG.

“I so want to kill Dawn, but she is pregnant. So I am going to kill her and the baby or just her and wait until October,” the complaint claims that Chyanne Otto wrote in her journal.

 

 

She understood that the step-mom was pregnant.  She also didn’t CARE.  The fact that she says pregnant describes the step mom in a CONDITION.

This in my opinion is the result of our oversexed society and repeated instruction to young woman to visit “Planned Parenthood” to get their abortions and contraception.  There is NOTHING about “planned” in PP.  They don’t give advice to women if they are pregnant and WANT THE BABY.  THAT too is PLANNED.  Keeping the baby is a PLAN.  They offer nothing related to that.  They offer nothing on problems CONCEIVING.   This name should be revealed as a DECEPTION.

 

The constant barrage of mis information and DEHUMANIZING an unborn CHILD is part of the reason why there is little empathy for a pregnant woman.  There is a sense of disconnect.

 

This young woman, yes fourteen is not a child, is on her way to monsterhood.

 

We have more empathy for someone killing a dog, then a woman (pregnant no less)

This story didn’t even get much local attention.  Just a little.

Teen accused of trying to kill stepmother

Girl allegedly put antifreeze in drink

 

BY DOUG SCHNEIDER • DSCHEID2@GREENBAYPRESSGAZETTE.COM • JANUARY 21, 2011

A 14-year-old Oconto County girl is accused of trying to kill her pregnant stepmother by putting antifreeze in the woman’s sports drink.

Chyanne Otto of Suring is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, a felony. A criminal complaint filed in Oconto County Circuit Court alleged that the teen in May 2010 slipped anti-freeze into a bottle of PowerAde, and that her stepmother, Dawn Otto, drank from it.

“I so want to kill Dawn, but she is pregnant. So I am going to kill her and the baby or just her and wait until October,” the complaint claims that Chyanne Otto wrote in her journal.

The complaint also alleges that the teen wrote, “Dawn won’t die, I gave her a bunch of junk of stuff out of the garage last week and she is not dead, so I am doing it again with only antifreeze, so hopefully it works.”

Dawn Otto drank from the bottle, noticed an unusual taste, and phoned her husband thinking he might have been using the container to store chemicals.

The complaint stated that the teen’s family became suspicious of the girl in the fall, after receiving a call from the parent of one of the girl’s classmates. The Ottos then checked the girl’s journal, the complaint said.

Someone convicted of attempted first-degree homicide can be imprisoned for up to 60 years.

Chyanne Otto is scheduled for the balance of her initial appearance Wednesday. She was released on a $50,000 signature bond under the conditions that she live with her grandfather and have no contact with her stepmother.

Muslim fathers and brothers are no protectors of the family – Father of Harry Potter star, Afshan Azad, 22, charged over threat to kill

July 1, 2010
This is a father?
Western civilization regards woman as humans and a treasure.  Women are the fairer gender.  The mothers of future generations.  Girls were regarded as delicate flowers.
The Muslim fathers instead of protecting their daughters and keeping them well are their potential killers.
How is this a family? How does this make a civilization?
Family values are absent from these monsters.
Our own civilization is diminished by allowing these monsters to roam amongst us.
We are like sheep and the wolves are smelling blood.

Dad charged over threat to kill Harry Potter star:

Afshan Azad who played Padma Patel in Harry Potter

The father and brother of an actress who starred in the Harry Potter films have been charged with threatening to kill her.

Afshan Azad, 22, has appeared in four of the movies as Padma Patil, a classmate of the young wizard.

She was allegedly attacked at her home in Longsight, Manchester, on May 21 this year.

Now her father Abdul Azad, 54, and brother, Ashraf Azad, 28, both of Beresford Road, Longsight, have appeared in court.

Abdul is accused of threatening to kill his daughter and Ashraf of threatening to kill and assault occasioning actual bodily harm against his sister.

Both men appeared at Manchester magistrates court and the case was adjourned until later this month for committal proceedings to crown court.

Afshan was studying for her AS levels at the Xaverian College in Rusholme when she was first cast in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

She has since appeared in three more of the wizard movies and is in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, due for release next year.

Her character was a witch who was in the same year as Harry at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is the identical twin sister of Parvati Patil, played by actress Shefila Chowdhury.

Afshan’s character has also dated Harry himself – played in the films by Daniel Radcliffe.

Before being picked to play the part Afshan had never done any acting.

She has admitted she only went to the audition at her former school – Whalley Range High School for Girls – for a laugh with her school friends.

She appeared in the films while continuing her studies and once had ambitions to be a journalist.

After landing her first part in The Goblet of Fire she told us ‘it was ‘the best experience of my life’ adding ‘The first day we had to do a cast read through, where we go through the whole script. I was a bit star struck. I was a big Harry Potter fan.”

Times Square Bomber FAILURE – Faisal Shahzad, came from a wealthy family in northwest Pakistan.

May 4, 2010

The bomber is a US citizen and the reason that the profiling should be done based on the Israeli intelligence model.

This guy is not a formal terrorist.  This guy is a fall guy.  This “attempt” was a distraction.  This is just to keep us busy.  Not only was this unprofessional but they are trying to find out just how much we are willing to buy.  Isn’t it too convenient?  He didn’t do anything to hide either.  There is a surprising LACK of intelligence on something soooo amateurish.

The corruption within the US government is at the highest levels.  Maybe they should call in security that protects some of these big elites and re learn HOW to gather intelligence.  I suspect however, is that it’s not the Americans who are INCAPABLE rather it’s the WORLD’s elite who are CULPABLE.

How many more times are we going to “get lucky?”   Wink, wink….?

Pakistan makes arrests over Times Square bomb:

By ASHRAF KHAN and RIAZ KHAN
The Associated Press
Tuesday, May 4, 2010; 4:01 PM
KARACHI, Pakistan — Pakistani authorities have detained several people in connection with the bombing attempt in New York’s Times Square, intelligence officials said Tuesday.
Authorities here also said the suspect detained in the U.S. in the failed bombing, Faisal Shahzad, came from a wealthy family in northwest Pakistan.
Law enforcement officials in Washington, D.C., said Tuesday that the Pakistani-born U.S. citizen had attended a terror training camp in Pakistan. He was charged with terrorism.
Shahzad was arrested late Monday aboard a flight that was headed to the Middle East for trying to blow up the sport utility vehicle in Times Square on Saturday evening.
Shahzad is the son of retired Air Vice Marshall Baharul Haq, a former top Pakistani air force officer and deputy director general of the civil aviation authority, according to Kifyat Ali, a cousin of Shahzad’s father.
Ali spoke with reporters outside a two-story home in an upscale part of Peshawar, the main city in the northwest, owned by the family.
Ali said the family had yet to be officially informed of Shahzad’s arrest in the United States.
Ali called Shahzad’s detention “a conspiracy so the (Americans) can bomb more Pashtuns.” It was a reference to a major ethnic group in Peshawar and the nearby tribal areas of Pakistan and southwest Afghanistan.
He insisted that Shahzad “was never linked to any political or religious party here.”
He said Shahzad often stayed in Peshawar when he came back from the United States.
On her social networking page, Shahzad’s wife, Huma Mian, lists her languages as English, Pashto, Urdu and French, her religion as Muslim and her political view as “nonpolitical.” Her favorite television shows were Everybody Loves Raymond and Friends.
The arrests took place in Karachi, a teeming city on the Arabian sea at the other end of Pakistan
One of those detained, identified as Tauseef, was a friend of Shahzad, one official said. Like all Pakistani intelligence officials, he refused to be named in the media.
Another official said several people had been taken into custody in Karachi since the failed attack Saturday. Some media reports described them as relatives of Shahzad.
Neither said when the detentions had taken place. They said no charges had been filed.
Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik said initial information showed Shahzad and his family came from the Pabbi region of northwest Pakistan, but that Shahzad also had a Karachi identity card.
“We have to see whether it was an individual act or if it was a collective kind of act,” he said.

Children, kids, or teenagers – Violent and dangerous – need “integration?”

March 15, 2010

This is the answer?  Integration?

“In short, punishment can make delinquent youths more delinquent, she said.”

Ok.  So, she proposes being talked to and coddled?  Why not take these kids and punish them and THEN put them in a military like setting.  Teach them what they need to do to live while confronting them about what makes them violent.  And their NEED to CONTROL it.

I can guarantee that these kids are violent becuase their environment was violent.  Either because of their parents, who were violent to them or they (the parents) were themselves victims of violence.

I have said over and over that Children (and adults, but especially children) become criminals in one way or anther after they grow up from these situations.  To survive, they use the techniques that were taught to them by the violence.

They, then, react to the violence with their own type of violece.  This iether mimics that which they have seen or they swing in the total opposite direction that uses a different form of violence that counters their victimization.

So, an example would be, a girl who is raped as a child, becomes a mother of a boy.  She may abuse that child, either physically or through neglect of sorts, because she is lashing out.  She may not even know that she is doing it.  The child then becomes a victim of hers and HE will lash out.

ONE thing that can be done with these kids is to figure out how they have been abused and then bring their abuser to justice.  Then, if the child is taught to LIVE NORMAL, then they will END the cycle of ABUSE.  They will enter the cycle of LIFE

Ticino teenager Damiano Tamagni was beaten to death in February 2008 in Locarno

Most criminal teens had troubled childhoods

As the trial of Swiss teens accused of attacking strangers in Germany resumes later this month, researchers have taken a new look at youths who use extreme violence.

Perhaps more disturbing is that one out of four youths who underwent the evaluations had already begun to break the law before they had turned 14. The crimes often only grew worse.

“If you get hurt, if you are a victim, it makes you angry and you want to see someone punished,” Bessler said. “I understand that, but this doesn’t help at all because often these kids get worse in jail. You have to treat them.”

In short, punishment can make delinquent youths more delinquent, she said.

Long history

The Swiss youths on trial in Munich were all 16 when they went on a 30-minute rampage while on a school trip, attacking five people, including a disabled person and an insurance salesman, whose face is reported to have “collapsed” in the attack. The teens all had previous convictions.

Collapsed?  How did it collapse?  Did it deflate, like in the cartoons?  These people live in a cartoon life.  “Beat In” should have sufficed.

Manuel Eisner, a lecturer in sociology at Zurich University and the deputy director at Cambridge University’s institute of criminology, agreed that youths rarely commit a serious crime out of the blue. His findings echo Bessler’s report, which indicated that a majority of violent youths had already been in trouble as pre-schoolers.

“There’s often a long history that starts even in kindergarten,” Eisner told swissinfo.ch.

“Kids use force. They fight over toys and it isn’t problematic. Most stop. But there’s a small group that falls through the sieve, that gets more and more dangerous as they get older, gain strength, and alcohol and drugs come into the picture. The big question now is how does this group differs from all of the others.”

Bessler’s study did not attempt to answer that. Instead it set out to look at serious offenders from a statistical point of view.

Integrate, integrate, integrate

To complete the analysis Bessler and a team of six researchers looked at evaluations performed between 2004 and 2006 on youths who were ten to 18 years old.

Some of the themes that popped up were common: males from poor, abusive, uneducated families with immigrant backgrounds came up often in the reports. Others were more subtle. More offenders had mothers with no professional skills (75 per cent) than those who had fathers with few or no skills (68 per cent).

Almost half of the criminals studied were not Swiss, with about one-quarter having families from the former Yugoslavia. Eisner, who did not take part in the analysis, said “a negative feedback loop”, with discrimination and stigmatisation, often leads to “self-fulfilling stereotypes” among Balkan youth.

But Bessler says the analysis should serve more as a call to society to think about how we deal with young people who commit cruel crimes.

“If these young people get in jail and they don’t get better, they lose the opportunity to integrate,” she said.

“They have to be punished. They have to feel society’s reaction to what they did. But they have to have the chance to be integrated.”

And that means society has to look at the youths’ families and discuss ways to support them, their relationships and helping them with jobs and education, she said.

“It’s another direction and opportunity,” she said.

France’s, Nicolas Sarkozy, is the crusader for women’s rights by recognizing that the muslim (Islam’s) veil is a symbol of woman’s oppression-Albert Einstein, argued, it is the responsibility of a liberal government “to ensure the unhindered development of the individual.”

December 29, 2009

The picture below, in my opinion, shows a woman trapped in her own jail.

Wow, some women want this?

How degrading can it get?  This is degrading.  This is not elevating in any way.  The same would be true if women were wearing nothing at all.  The extremes are both DEGRADING. 

 

France and the Burqa

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in a rare speech to lawmakers of both Houses on June 22, 2009, kicked up a controversy by declaring the head-to-toe burka “not a sign of religion” but of “subservience,” which would not be welcome in France.

Ignoring criticism, which divided the French, the Sarkozy administration pursued its intended burqa ban by forming a parliamentary committee consisting of 32 lawmakers to investigate whether wearing a burqa trampled Muslim women’s liberty and how the ban could be enacted.

The committee, after a protracted investigation involving Muslim community leaders and intellectuals (including Tariq Ramadan), is about to deliver its verdict; recent statements by leading French politicians suggest that a recommendation banning the burqa in public spaces in France is on its way.

Islam subjugated both non-Muslims (dhimmis) and the Muslim women. The West, including the French, spearheaded the liberation of dhimmis of the Islamic world in the so-called age of colonialism by direct intervention or through diplomatic pressure (e.g. Iran and Turkey). But the fate of oppressed Muslim women remained largely unchanged as colonial powers avoided intervening in the private affairs of Muslims.

Ironically, Muslim women experienced bits of liberation, under the indirect influence of liberal thoughts brought to the Muslim world by the colonists and under their protection. But in the post-colonial world, it is being taken away from them.

It should by now be obvious that Muslim societies will not liberate their women, despite the passive influence flowing in from the liberal West. A direct intervention from without remains to be tried.

Whether it works or not, the pending French ban on the burqa would constitute the first substantial effort in liberating Muslim women.

But this time the French would not be doing it not as a discredited colonial power, but to uphold the Human Rights of its citizens as demanded by both the United Nations and its own Constitution.

The move was led by France in 2004, when it banned the wearing of headscarves by Muslim girls in schools (also Christian Crosses, Jewish skullcaps and Sikh Turbans) to keep secular institutions free from religious symbols.

The Islamic veil, called the hijab, the niqab or the burqa, and seen by critics as a sign of religious fundamentalism and a tool of suppression of Muslim women, has been banned by various institutions in the European countries of France, Denmark, Netherlands and Belgium.

Sarkozy’s comment ignited condemnations from Muslims, as well as non-Muslim leaders and intellectuals, all over the world. Muslims claimed the comment ‘stigmatized’ Islam. Even President Barack Obama, weeks earlier on June 4, 2009, indirectly condemned the limited ban on Muslim headscarves in his Cairo Speech: “

…it is important for western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practising religion as they see fit, for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.”

President Sarkozy reaffirmed his commitment to banning the burqa on November 12, saying: “France is a country where there is no place for the burqa, where there is no place for the subservience of women.”

The French immigration minister, Eric Besson, said on December16, 2009, that he would like the head-to-toe Muslim veils to be legal grounds for denying citizenship and long-term residence in France.

“I want the wearing of the full veil to be systematically considered as proof of insufficient integration into French society,” he said, “creating an obstacle to gaining (French) nationality.”

Meanwhile Jean-Francois Cope, a lawmaker and the Mayor of Meaux which has a large Muslim population belonging to Sarkozy’s conservative UMP Party, laid out the ‘rationale’ of the impending burqa ban in an article in “Le Figaro,” saying that the measure should be understood as “a law of liberation.”

What is striking is that Cope’s assertion completely contradicts what Muslims and their non-Muslim apologists claim: that the Islamic veil is a symbol of liberation, not suppression, for women.

Even Naomi Wolfe, a leading American feminist, affirmed this Muslim argument, saying: “Indeed, many Muslim women I spoke with did not feel at all subjugated by the chador or the headscarf. On the contrary, they felt liberated from what they experienced as the intrusive, commodifying, basely sexualising Western gaze.”

She herself, having donned a headscarf in Morocco to experience its exhilarating liberation, which she described as thus: “…I moved about the market – the curve of my breasts covered, the shape of my legs obscured, my long hair not flying about me – I felt a novel sense of calm and serenity. I felt, yes, in certain ways, free.”

Wolfe quoted a Muslim woman: “When I wear Western clothes, men stare at me, objectify me, or I am always measuring myself against the standards of models in magazines, which are hard to live up to – and even harder as you get older, not to mention how tiring it can be to be on display all the time. When I wear my headscarf or chador, people relate to me as an individual, not an object; I feel respected.”

Wolfe empathized: “This may not be expressed in a traditional Western feminist set of images, but it is a recognizably Western feminist set of feelings.”

What is notable is the central argument: that wearing a veil is a means of avoiding men’s stare, how liberally-dressed women are “eye-raped” by men, how men make indecent gestures at them, or even how men may get aroused to commit sexual violations, including rape.

It is bewildering to hear that well-educated Muslims may think that men commit an unbecoming, indecent, even criminal, act and the women have to bear the consequence of it by taking the responsibility of covering themselves up.

To a rational mind, men are at fault here; they should bear consequence. Such measures should be imposed on men, not on the well-behaved innocent women.

A woman’s body is her own property; she should have right to display it in the way she wants. Others, particularly men, should learn to restrain themselves from coveting, snatching, or touching other people’s property.

That is the ethos on which an ideal liberal civilized society must be based. The Islamic veil is a contravention of this central ethos of the modern liberal society. The French, or any other nations, would, therefore, be perfectly justified in banning the burqa.

It is important to realize is that the Prophet Muhammad and Allah applied the same rationale, as Muslims use today, to impose veil on Muslim women foourteen centuries ago. Muhammad, in line with the rather liberal Arab society, initially urged women dress modestly (Quran 24:30-31). Later on, he prescribed a complete head-to-toe covering of Muslim women in public spaces in verse 33:59, which reads Allah’s command: “O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers (i.e. of Muslims) to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognized and not annoyed.”

Now, let us consider the context of this verse. It was revealed in 629 CE or later, when Muhammad had completely cleansed Medina of the Jews, by a combination of eviction and mass-slaughter, while his Muslim brigands were raiding one non-Muslim community after another around Arabia, often enslaving the women, slaughtering the men, and plundering their wealth. As concerns enslaving the infidel women to be used as sex-slaves or sold, recommended by Allah in the Quran such as verse 33:50, Muhammad had already captured the women of Banu Quraiza, Banu al-Mustaliq and Khaybar, after slaughtering their men.

So, who were the purported molesters, as pointed to in this verse, from whose molestation Allah wanted to save the Muslim women by imposing the burqa? The molesters were obviously Muslim men: when Islam gained supreme power in Arabia, non-Muslims would not have dared to annoy Muslim women.

Muhammad imposed burqa on Muslim women to save them from his own sex-crazed Muslim brigands, whose criminal intent toward molesting women was undoubtedly aroused to its height by Muhammad’s inspiration and engagement in ceaseless raids on non-Muslim communities for capturing their women for subjecting them to rape and sexual slavery.

It was the non-Muslim women who were living in constant fear of Muslim raids upon their community, their enslavement and rape.

What we see here is that Islamic institution of veiling Muslim women was founded, in principle, as punishing them for the crimes of Muslim men: “punishing the victim.”

As exactly the same arguments are used by Muslims today, allowing such a miscarriage of justice should be totally unacceptable in a civilized society.

The French government is right to ban the burqa; the French government or any other has a moral and legal responsibility to do so. As the leading liberal ideologue, Albert Einstein, argued, it is the responsibility of a liberal government “to insure the unhindered development of the individual.”

The Burqa not only punishes the wrong party for the criminal thoughts of half the society, Muslim men; it also denies the unhindered expression and development of the other half of the society, Muslim women.

The Burqa almost entirely anonymizes women and reduces them to nonentity in society. Only criminals would seek anonymity, but only partially, i.e. only for their specific criminal actions.

Fundamentally, behind every burqa resides a nonentity, as well as a falsely accused “criminal” — not a human individual, whose right to freedom and liberty to enjoy every privilege in every sphere of life and society in equal measure with men is ensured in the Human Rights Charter of the United Nations and the constitutions of liberal Western societies.

President Sarkozy underlined this reality, in support of his intended ban on burqa, saying: “We cannot have in our country women who are prisoners behind netting, cut off from all social life, deprived of identity.”

The Islamic veil violates the most fundamental ethos of liberalism, not of one or two individuals, but of entire half of the Muslim society, in its grossest form. You may ignore your foremost responsibility to undertake measures to stem this fourteen-century-long violation, but please, do not condemn or stigmatize others, who make efforts to stem it.

All conscientious people, foremost the liberals, should support the French initiative to ban the burqa, the first step toward liberation of Muslim women from the clutches of men, which has lasted fourteen centuries since the founding of Islam.

And a word for President Obama, the idol of the world’s liberals: you may condemn others for banning the burqa, saying, “We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.” Yet, as an icon of liberalism and leader of the world’s leading nation in promoting liberalism globally, it becomes your foremost responsibility to uphold liberal values. And ensuring the unhindered expression of the individual and upholding her/his freedom and liberty, no matter what, lie at the heart of liberalism.

Buffalo, New York-Child abuse is part of the Somali culture- Six kids removed from welfare home where the 12 year old boy attended an exclusive private school that cost the parents $3,600 in advance of the year

December 29, 2009

They don’t speak English…!  

How long have they been here?

What about the kids?  Do they speak English?

I come from a home where my parents spoke barely enough to hold down 2 menial jobs.  Non the less, they had JOBS.  My mom worked 2 usually and 3 when my dad was diagnosed with kidney failure. 

These people breed like cats.  They have no idea when to stop.  They don’t care to either.  They are healthy enough to breed, then why not put them to work, so that they don’t have so much time on their hands to be able to have nookie so many times. Thats not fair to the rest of the shmucks that have to support these louses living off our sweat while they breed themselves a new Africa. 

This is why America is crazy to let this go on.  Look at these people.

They can do things.  They can work at menial jobs.  If she is healthy enough to keep having children and breast-feeding, then she is healthy as a horse.  Take it from a woman who breast-fed her child until 13 months of age.  It’s physically demanding.  She can work.  The guy (father – or whatever) is able to use corporal punishment on his kid?  That takes physical ability too.  He is able-bodied to work.  He doesn’t have to have a college degree to be a garbage man or something of the type that doesn’t require too much of understanding of any language. 

 So, whats next?  Honor killings are just CULTURE CLASHES too?

The political correctness ooozes from these pages.  Vile! It makes me ill.  Women are nothing and children are fodder with these people.

Culture clash tears Somali family apart

Six children taken by Social Services

Somalian immigrant Malaika Sabtow raised five children in African refugee camps, surviving for 14 years without electricity, amid persistent drought and regular outbreaks of malaria and tuberculosis.

But none of those 14 years, she said, was as bad as the past five months in Buffalo.

That’s how long it has been since the Erie County Department of Social Services took all of her children —she now has six, including a nursing 2-month-old daughter — and placed them in a foster home for reasons Sabtow doesn’t understand.

Sabtow, 28, wishes she were back in Africa.

“At least I had the kids there,” she said through a translator, Imam Yahye Omar. “Here everything is good, but if they are taking the kids from you, Africa is better.”

Supporters of Sabtow claim the county was overzealous in taking away her children and are concerned she and her husband, Madhey

A. Khamis, are being treated unfairly because they are new to the country and don’t speak English.

Social Services Commissioner Carol Dankert said she could not comment on why the children were removed or whether they would be returned.

“We do want kids to be with their families whenever possible,” she said.

The case is tied up in Erie County Family Court, where Sabtow is being represented by Buffalo attorney Oscar Smukler.

“I think the kids have suffered immeasurably,” said Smukler. “We’re making a concerted effort to get the children back to their parents.”

Khamis received a letter in September from a county caseworker explaining that a report of suspected child abuse or maltreatment had been “indicated” — meaning credible evidence had been found to support “the determination that you maltreated or abused the child(ren) named in the report.”

Child Protective Services became involved following a July 30 incident in the rented family home on Chenango Street, in which Khamis allegedly beat his 8-year-old son, Abdi Abdi, with a belt and tied the boy’s hands and legs with rope after he misbehaved at school, according to friends of the family.

Corporal punishment is acceptable in Somalia, according to friends, who said Khamis didn’t intend to hurt his son.

“They already understand that what the man did is a no-no here,” said Osman Dualeh Abdullah, a longtime Buffalo resident who is from Somalia.

Abdullah and others, including Omar, imam of the Islamic Cultural Association of Western New York, which runs a mosque on Connecticut Street, have tried to intervene on behalf of the family.

“Child Protective Services, they don’t know the culture. They need to be educated,” said Omar. “There is a lot of abuse going on in America, but not with these people. Kids are the most valuable thing they have in the world.”

Dawoud S. Adeyola, vice president of the Connecticut Street mosque, wrote a letter to Dankert saying the family has been subjected to “brutal punishment” by the department and urging the placement of the children either with their mother or with a family that understands their language and culture.

Muslim community leaders can assist with having the children returned to their mother and keeping the father away, if Child Protective Services still has concerns about him, said Abdullah.

At the very least, the kids should be placed in homes more sensitive to their cultural needs, friends of the family said.

The parents have told friends and others that the children appeared ill in their few supervised visits with them.

The baby girl, Shamia, who is now 6 months old, has rashes on her body and constantly cries during the visits, according to Sabtow. Shamia was being breast-fed at the time she was taken from Sabtow.

Shamia and her brother, Hassan, 5, were recently hospitalized in Women & Children’s Hospital — and their parents were told by county staff not to visit.

“We’re afraid of the psychological damage to the children. Every time they go see them, the kids are crying, sick or suffering,” said Abdullah.

The children have been split among three foster homes — none of which is a Muslim family, said Omar, the imam.

One of the boys, Mustaffa, 12, was pulled out of an Islamic boarding school and placed in School 19, even though his parents paid $3,600 in advance for the boy to attend the private school.

According to Omar, Mustaffa told his mother that the people he was living with would not allow him to practice Islam.

A daughter, Fatuma, 11, also has not been allowed to wear the traditional Muslim head scarf, Omar said.

And none of the children was able to participate in Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, he said.

Child Protective Services works closely with the area’s four refugee resettlement agencies to make sure staff members understand cultural differences, said Dankert.

“Certainly there are different beliefs held by different cultures, and we have to work to navigate those,” she said.

But the aim of the department is child welfare, and “if there [are] grounds for removing the children we always have to have our work scrutinized by the courts,” she said.
