Clash of civilizations: Iranian in Canada attacks wife’s boss for saying hello


“You are now in Canada’: Anger management ordered for Iranian-born man who attacked wife’s boss.”

A clash of civilizations? Very much so, and it will take far more than anger management to change this husband’s views:

“An Iran-born Edmonton man has been ordered to take anger management courses following a “nasty” attack on his wife’s boss stemming from a male co-worker saying hello to her in a mall”

“This was very nasty,” said Judge Kirk MacDonald. He continued:

“You are now in Canada. We do not place restrictions on the way that women live here, unlike in some other countries.”

This clash of civilizations between Westerners and Muslims is far too often trivialized or downplayed. The West needs to stand firm in supporting its constitutions of equality for all and human rights for all.

Ironically, Islamic supremacists regularly reference the past wrongs of Westerners in manipulating Western guilt, but at the same time, conveniently ignore the West’s evolution in developing the principle of human rights for all, which includes the rights of Muslim women. The stealth jihadist agenda is to fan the flames of Western guilt and the hopelessness of being doomed by the designation “racist.”

Edmonton court

“‘You are now in Canada’: Anger management ordered for Iranian-born man who attacked wife’s boss”, by Tony Blais, National Post, August 24, 2016:

An Iran-born Edmonton man has been ordered to take anger management courses following a “nasty” attack on his wife’s boss stemming from a male co-worker saying hello to her in a mall.

Aadel Moradi, 39, was given a suspended sentence and placed on probation for 18 months on Tuesday in provincial court after pleading guilty to assault charges over what was an apparent clash of cultures.

“This was very nasty,” said Judge Kirk MacDonald, who described the Nov. 6, 2015, incident as a minor assault with “disturbing” undertones.

“You are now in Canada. We do not place restrictions on the way that women live here, unlike in some other countries,” said MacDonald, adding it is “very sad” that Moradi doesn’t see it.

The judge told Moradi — a Kurd who emigrated here from a city near Tehran about 15 years ago — that he had considered sending him to jail, but accepted the joint submission by Crown and defence.

“Just because you think someone has displayed bad manners, getting into a fight is no remedy for that,” said MacDonald.

Crown prosecutor Bethan Franklyn told court that Moradi and his wife had been at a city mall in late October 2015 when one of her co-workers came up to say hello.

Moradi asked the man how he knew his wife, then told him not to talk to her, said Franklyn.

On Nov. 6, Moradi went with his wife to the downtown office where she worked and asked to speak to human resources about the mall incident, said Franklyn.

Court heard he eventually spoke to Ross Undershute, the CEO of the health consulting organization, and stated “No men are allowed to speak to his wife and she can’t speak to any men.”

After Undershute explained that would not be possible, Moradi became irate and refused to leave after being asked to do so.

He tried to kick Undershute, and “clawed and scratched” his face before spitting at his face, said Franklyn. He also unsuccessfully tried to kick, knee, slap and bite Undershute.

Court heard Undershute suffered scratches to his nose and lip.

Franklyn said it was aggravating that the assault happened at a workplace and had domestic undertones. She also called the spitting a “degrading” act.

Defence lawyer Rob Shaigec called the incident “out of character” for Moradi and said his client is “very ashamed” of his behaviour.

Shaigec told court that Moradi, based on his culture and upbringing, had been offended by his wife’s co-worker approaching her in public and speaking to her without first introducing himself to Moradi…

While on probation, Moradi must take an anger management course and perform 50 hours of community service. He is also not allowed to go to his wife’s office or to contact Undershute and three other co-workers.”
