AZ Attempted Honor Killing: She Wasn’t A Census Worker

By

Too bad the poor daughter wasn't a census worker. Here's a pretty clear window into just how sensitive American media has become when it comes to potentially offending Muslims. An Arizona Muslim man is being sought for running down his daughter as she was becoming too "westernized". I went looking for different stories to see what I might find out. Not a single Google News link except for The Examiner and the Freepers picked it up. That's it. End of story. That's surprising for something of a sensational crime.

PEORIA, Ariz. — 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.

A second woman, 43-year-old Amal Edan Khalaf, also of Surprise, suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police say the women are roommates.

    Free Republic has a search feature so I looked for “Honor Killing” and found that both CNN and AP showed up with articles dated Oct. 21st.

    Interesting. Maybe it’s Google filtering them.

    Any religion that believes killing your own child is okay under ANY circumstances needs to be rooted out and removed like a bad patch of poison oak.

    I hope you’re being sarcastic here.
