    An Afghan diplomat was charged Friday with beating his wife "like a dog" for more than 15 hours in their Queens home, prosecutors said.

    Mohammed Fagirad, 30, a vice consul at the Afghanistan Consulate, brutalized his wife inside their Flushing home from about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday until nearly midnight, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

    During the attack, Fagirad bit, slapped, choked and beat the 22-year-old woman with a belt, pushed her down a flight of stairs and sat on her chest, prosecutors said. At one point, prosecutors said, Fagirad threw his wife up against a wall, held her there by the neck and then let her drop to the floor, where he beat her with a belt. Fagirad told police his "wife was a dog and he was going to treat her like a dog," prosecutors said.

    When Fagirad left the home, his wife fled and went to the 109th Precinct stationhouse, where she filed a domestic violence report, prosecutors said. She then returned home. When Fagirad returned, he demanded his wife's cell phone and called police to file a counterclaim, prosecutors said.

    The woman, who was not named, was hospitalized for bruises and scratches to her neck and back. Prosecutors said Fagirad's limited diplomatic immunity only covers work-related infractions.

    If he pushed her down the stairs, it seems to me they could get an attempted murder charge. To only charge with abuse isn't enough. He'll get out in no time.

    Are we to sarcastically refer to Christianity as "the religion of peace" every time we hear news of Christians abusing their spouses and/or children or do you reserve that title only for religions you don't like?

    That seems reasonable. I'm glad to hear that his diplomatic immunity won't cover spousal abuse.

    When was the last time a Christian blew himself up in the name of Christ? You seem to have missed the point, which is that, among the world's religions, only one has to constantly remind us of its peaceful intent while its adherants constantly demonstrate the opposite, and it's not Christianity, Judaism, Buhddism, Shintoism, Hinduism or Zoroastrianism, it's Islam. Deal with it.

    The question is whether she will be forced to return to Afghanistan with him when his assignment is up, or before that if he sends her home. If that's the case, then she will probably end up as an honor-killing statistic.

    No. You seem to have missed the point. We're not talking about someone who blew himself up in the name of Allah. We're talking about a wife beater.

    We're talking about somebody who thinks it okay to beat dogs.

    If you can't treat a pet nicely, you probably shouldn't upgrade to the human equivalent.

    I think he reserves it only for religions who don't automatically condemn that behavior and that teach that women are "less" than men.

    Christian men usually want to take the wife abusers outback and give them a taste of their own medicine, but hopefully restrain themselves and let the law take care of it.
