Attempted Honor Killing in Arizona

Assigned Reading: AZ Man Runs Down ‘Westernized’ Daughter
(FROM: Associated Press)

Police in a Phoenix suburb are looking for a father suspected of running down his daughter because she was becoming too “Westernized” and was not living according to their traditional Iraqi values.

Police say 48-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki of Glendale allegedly ran his daughter down Tuesday at an Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot in Peoria.

The victim, 20-year-old Noor Faleh Almaleki of Surprise, remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

So she was too “westernized,” so her father ran her down in a parking lot with his car, injuring another girl in the process. This was his own daughter, mind you.

Imagine if she had converted to Christianity and run off to Florida.

Oh, but Rifqa Bary’s life isn’t in danger if she returns home to her family in Ohio. Please.

    Jeff,

    I guess that would be true if you believe that all Muslims will kill their child for becoming too westernized, is that what you believe?

    Gail,

    With all due respect it is a legitimate question. More Christian children are killed by their parents in the US over a course of a year than muslim parents, yet know one here is calling for us to be careful about returning christian children to their parents? I dont like fanatical Islam, but lets not get carried away here. If Jeff really believes that all muslim fathers will kill their daughters because they get too westernized, let him state that.

    "More Christian children are killed by their parents in the US over a course of a year than muslim"
    Want to show the facts that back that up? I don't think I have ever heard of a Christian child being killed because they were leaving their faith. Definitely not like the muslims.
    Go here and learn from someone that's been there and knows exactly what goes on.

    Be sure to read and read of the HUNDREDS of girls that she shows have been killed for being "westernized" or less.

    Whazzup, the difference is that there are laws against child abuse here in America. There are government programs to teach new mothers and fathers how to become better parents. We do not condone running down children (citizens, police, etc.) with automobiles because of their religious beliefs.

    In addition to that, there is no "honor" in killing a child. If the Muslims do not like the American way and American laws, why don't they just go back to where they came from? Why did they bring their families here in the first place?

    "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." When in America, obey the LAW and DO NOT KILL.

    whats_up,
    I don't get your point. How is it that Christian parents kill their children more than Muslim parents? Will you site references, and their bios (some bios of the references explain a lot to why they think the way they do)?

    Another point, I don't think Jeff believes ALL Muslim fathers will kill their children, but Jeff did point out that if one Muslim father attempted to kill his daughter for becoming too "westernized," how much more concern should we show another young girl who "abandoned" her faith for another, especially whose religion approves death to those who convert away?

    I don't think Jeff is overzealous here at all. Hope you see my point. Thanks.

    "If Jeff really believes that all muslim fathers will kill their daughters because they get too westernized, let him state that."

    ONE daughter killed is too many, whether she's killed by a Muslim father or by an overwhelmed, irate Christian, deranged, or atheist father.

    When I read about people like that, I shift closer to the idea of removing the "cruel and unusual punishment" restriction imposed by the Constitution. A few public, medieval-style executions would go a long way in restoring people's fear of the law. And no, I do not think that the restriction protects me as well as the other guy – since when liberals care about what the Constitution restricts?

    I believe everyone should read the book "A God Who Hates" by Wafa Sultan. Honour killings may not be performed by every muslim, but the pressure placed upon the family to redeem themselves is nothing like what we who are Christains ever experience. I do not believe all muslim fathers kill their daughters, but the muslim law and honour for family exist. The main problem is the media is silent about the millions of women who suffer from abuse including sexual mutilation at the hands of their husbands. Even in America many honour killings are hidden and not seen for what they really are. A sample of honour killings follows here:

    Tulz Goren a 15 year old school girl was tortured by her father before she was murdered for having fallen in love. The father later attacked the boy with an axe to the throat.

    Onder B. killed his German-born wife for being too independent. He stabbed her in both eyes, beat her with a billard cue stick before running her over with his car.

    A 27 year old man stabbed his former wife to death "in the name of the Koran". She was stabbed mroe than 20 times.

    Yasmine and Sabrina Larbi-Cherif were killed by Yasmine's boyfrend. One of them was stabbed over 30 times. The honour killer was foreced to rearm several times as the knives broke from the force of the stabbing.

    Buffalo, New York a prominent business man chooped off his wifes head in an honour killing.

    Amina and Sarah Said were raped and murdered by their father in his cab by the airport. He then left the country to return to his native land.

    These are only a few of the stories of Muslim women. They are also the story of all women. We must be very careful we do not forget them. We must also know the media has chosen to ignore them. We must also know the unfortunate truth is Sharia law could be imposed on any nation and would apply to all within that country. I know we have enough on our plates with Obama, but we also need to fight for all human rights and against oppressors everywhere. As Christians we know "We are our brother's keeper."

    Have you ever lived in a Muslim country? How many non-Westernized Muslims do you know personally? There are plenty of stories from the time of my IDF service I could tell you, and they have little to do with "Arabian Nights" and more with Lovecraft's horror novels.
