Pathetic Politicaly correct prosecutors: Honor Killing in AZ

February 27, 2010

Arizona prosecutors have decided not to pursue the death penalty in the case of Faleh Al-Maleki, the Iraqi immigrant who struck his 20-year-old daughter Noor — and the woman who was protecting her — with his vehicle. Noor, whom Al-Maleki had accused of being too “Westernized,” died of her injuries, and her father has been charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, and two counts of leaving the scene of a serious accident.

Public defender Billy Little asked the judge to take “special precautions” that the D.A. wouldn’t seek death because Al-Maleki is a Muslim. The irony is that Al-Maleki committed his crimes because by his own reckoning, his daughter was not true to her Muslim faith.

In addition, Little’s bias is apparently acceptable. Little, in reference to the religious beliefs of County Attorney Andrew Thomas, asked for “An open process [that] provides some level of assurance that there is no appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs.”

This murder was based on the centuries-old tradition — still adhered to in some parts of the world — of murdering female relatives who don’t obey Islamic rules. It is, arguably, even more disturbing when the crime happens in the United States and political correctness affords special protection for her murderer.


This is prosecutorial mis-conduct at it’s worst, and all in the name of political correctness.

Parental Rights or prescription for yet another honor killing?

September 26, 2009

Both Atlas Shrugs and Creeping Sharia have been all over this story. Since the three of us have a different readership I thought that it might be a good idea to post about the situation here.

While most 17-year-old girls dream of high school proms, Fathima Rifqa Bary fears for her life. The Ohio teen fled her parents’ home after her father allegedly threatened to kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity. Now in foster care in Florida, she awaits a court decision that could force her to return to Ohio, to the father she fears.

Rifqa’s father denies threatening her life, yet his disclaimer is suspicious, especially given his attorney’s work for the Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which denies any connection at all between Islam and “honor” killings — a denial contradicted by Islamic law itself and by documented cases of such murders here in the United States.

Of course, Rifqa’s conversion would be a non-issue if it were from Christianity to Islam. And it is an interesting contrast to our recent report of a New Hampshire court’s ordering of a Christian homeschooled girl to attend public school for “exposure to different points of view.” Parental rights remain an issue not to be taken lightly — indeed, too often, they are when the shoe is on the other foot — but Rifqa’s very life could be at stake. Florida authorities argue her concern is “subjective and speculative,” but if she is returned to Ohio and murdered, what then? Who would be held accountable? Florida officials? Not likely.

In related news, Muslims held a prayer rally at the U.S. Capitol Friday. One of the chief organizers was Hassen Abdellah, a lawyer who has previously represented Islamic terrorists, including some involved with both the 1993 and 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. The objective was to display their patriotism and religious freedom — two things that non-Muslims definitely do not enjoy in Islamic countries.


Now, can anyone say “Domestic Violence?” I knew ya’ could!
