Compare and contrast 2 reports on same story. Newfoundland, a Saudi father’s tales

Yesterday in the first multi post of the day I posted a story at item 3 where I was not clear enough on what the issue actually was. So I am going to try and lay it out a little better here.

On March 24 (give or take 24 hours) A Canadian TV station broadcast a very specific story about how a Saudi man attempted to choke his daughter for marrying a non-muslim man in an honour crime, as they call it.

On March 26, CTV broadcast the results of a brief trial in which the father was expelled from Canada for his actions but the story was very fundamentally changed. Also the first video, which I had downloaded, had been deleted from YT leaving the usual message of:

“This video was removed by the user”

Now often YT will remove a video and leave that message as I recall, but either way, the original story had been sanitized from the net and there is pretty much no history of it that can be found on the original channel’s webpage either, although it does say something about religion.

Below is both videos, the first from NTV and the second from CTV.

Very important questions need to be asked here and answered.

I hope this is a little clearer than yesterday’s post.

  1. A Saudi Arabian man who tried to choke his daughter told a St. John’s judge that such actions are “an acceptable form of discipline” in his country.

    “I did it out of love. My heart was in my hands.”

    […]Defence lawyer Rosellen Sullivan explained to the judge that Alshaek came to St. John’s — with his wife and some of his 10 children — to be a chaperone for his daughter, who is attending Memorial University on a scholarship.

    She said what his daughter did was considered disrespectful in his country and that his actions were meant as a preventative measure.

    “There are lots of cultural nuances in this case that we’re not used to,” she pointed out.
