347) ...Wielding a knife, Nabil Almousa threw her to the floor, pinned her arms and legs, and went at her eyelids with its seven-inch blade.
By the time he got up again, there were seven cuts and slices — and so much blood that a woman who later saw her thought it must be a prank.
“There,” Almousa told her. “You can leave now.”
Almost a year later, as she weighs whether or not to have plastic surgery, she said she is partly to blame for own disfigurement because she said something to make him mad.
But the judge who heard the facts Friday — about the knife attack and the chain of events building up to it — was having none of that.
“I want you to understand this,” said Justice Michael Epstein, his voice rising as he addressed Almousa, 34, in the prisoner’s dock. “She bears no responsibility.” The justice called the case one of the worst cases of domestic violence he has even seen.
Court heard the couple met in Jordan, bucking their Muslim tradition of arranged marriages after she caught his eye while working in a store.
“This is a relationship that began simply with love,” said defence lawyer Stephanie Krug.
They came to Canada as refugees in 2007 and quickly had three kids, all still under the age of five.
She stayed home in Waterloo to mind the family. He worked long hours to support it, first in construction and then at a Guelph factory.
Neighbours in their complex noticed bruises and urged her to go to police, but she refused even after admitting her husband hit her.
But when Almousa came home drunk one night at 4 a.m., woke her up and punched her in the face, they took that step themselves.............

360) When and if this guy is caught, he will turn out to be a Muslim. A multicultural soccer tournament held in Regina this week was a perfect example of cultures coming together in a respectful and peaceful way. Except for that huge brawl.
And the referee who got punched in the face.
Regina Police are on the hunt for a 26-year-old man who allegedly knocked a 45-year-old referee unconscious during an indoor soccer match, Wednesday night.....
....One witness/spectator told CBC News that emotions were running high throughout the game and that "things got out of hand, people started fouling and tackling each other."

All those players from all those cultural backgrounds, and the result: Five red cards, one unconscious referee and an assault investigation.....
