Jordan’s Failing Security and Xenophobia Muffles Syrian Abuse and Neglect


Republished from NSNBC  Siraj Davis (nsnbc) :

Below is an interview with an elderly Syrian wife and mother, whose handicapped husband was forcefully kidnapped from their peaceful home, humiliatingly tied to a tree in broad daylight, and publicly whipped without interruption with several strokes of a belt. Their adolescent daughter witnessed this shameful unjustifiable tragedy. Insult to injury, the ‘unbiased’ Jordanian government sought ‘compromise’ with no criminal prosecution against the landlord who committed this unconscionable offense. She is one of seven Syrian families victimized by this same landlord in Salt, Jordan.
