Skip to comments.Islamic Honor Killing In Texas: "Santa Killer" Was Muslim Who Hated Daughter Dating A Non-Muslim
Posted on 12/27/2011 1:30:07 PM PST by Windflier
The mainstream media has reported this as the "Santa killer." No mention that it was an Islamic honor killing until this Dallas Morning News story. Our daughters and granddaughters are going to be the ones who will suffer because of for this obfuscation and excusal of barbarism.
This has been going on for years. When Amina and Sarah Said were brutally murdered by their father, also in Texas, on New Years Day 2008 for the same reason -- having non-Muslim boyfriends -- I thought, this is it. This is going to break the dam wide open. America would not, could not possibly, ignore this horror caused by and sanctioned by Islamic beliefs, assumptions, and attitudes.
And yet America continues to ignore this horror. And more and more people are victimized every day.
Aziz Yazdanpanah, a Muslim, didn't like his daughter's non-Muslim boyfriend and was exhibiting stalker behavior. She couldnt date at all until she was a certain age, but when he was going to let her date she couldnt date anyone outside of their race or religion.
Again and again we have seen honor killings in which fathers kill daughters who are dating non-Muslims or have supposedly besmirched the family honor by some sexual indiscretion. Lt. Todd Dearing says that motive isn't important -- which is generally only the case when Islam is involved.
"Neighbors horrified at news of familys slayings in Grapevine," by Gloria Salinas and Scott Goldstein for the Dallas Morning News, December 26 (snip)
a more ominous portrait emerged of Yazdanpanah in interviews with some of his daughters other classmates.
She would come to school crying and telling us her dad was crazy, said Lacie Reed, 18. He wouldnt let her wear certain things. He was always taking her phone away, checking her call history and checking her text messages.
Friends said Nonas father had installed cameras all around the home so he could watch the familys comings and goings. Others said he nailed her bedroom window shut so she could not sneak out at night and see her boyfriend.
She couldnt date at all until she was a certain age, but when he was going to let her date she couldnt date anyone outside of their race or religion, Reed said.
Thanks very much for this posting.
Yup first I’ve heard of this. Not shocked now that I know this is such a peaceful religion. They mean us no harm. sarcasm.
Wouldn’t this problem go away if all muslim men were eliminated from the US?
The biggest surprise here is that the POS offed himself as well. That doesn’t happen very often unless the ROPer is a suicide bomber aiming to kill as many Infidels as possible.
At least - no more should be allowed in.
I also find it interesting that he murdered his son, his sister and her husband, as well as other relatives besides his apostate daughter.
You're welcome, Onyx. I just saw the report, and it's the first I've seen of a Muslim connection to the crime. I almost posted it in Breaking News.
When I first read this story, I posted, ‘angry muzzie father mad at family for going ‘Western’?
Sadly, I was right.
Since the media has been so hush hush about the details surrounding this story, I kind figured it was something along these lines.
muslims are pigs
Not buying it.
This was no more “honor killing” than Jared Loughner.
Pamela Gellar’s credibility just took a nosedive...particularly over his “crazy” restrictions. Every father that doesn’t let his daughter run like a greyhound practices damn near everything mentioned.
What's so awful about the murder is the consistency of it: this isn't one crazy man going after his daughters for his own reasons, but reasons based on religious and cultural ideology shared by others. For every "honor murder" we hear about in the papers, there are at least eight more waiting to happen, from fathers who think exactly the same way this man did.
And yet we get TV shows like "All American Muslim."
Neighbors said Yazdanpanah and his wife, Fatemeh Rahmadi, separated months ago when she moved into the Grapevine apartment where the shooting took place.
The couple’s oldest daughter 19-year-old Nona Yazdanpanah was a Tarrant County College student who had just graduated from Colleyville Heritage High School along with her best friend, Allison Baum.
“It was just family issues, just typical family issues,” Baum said. “The mom and dad didn’t get along. The dad was never violent, never did anything to hurt them. He loved his kids and he was a good dad.”
At Coldwater Creek Spa in Southlake, employees told News 8 Fatemeh Rahmadi had not shown up for work, causing alarm, because she had never once been late in the four years she worked there. They feared the worst.
The Colleyville home where Aziz Yazdanpanah lived had been foreclosed on more than a year ago.
Sure, but it would still be going on rampantly elsewhere around the world.
There's going to come a point (soon, I hope) when the people of all Western nations rise up and collectively denounce this barbaric religion.
Just saw you mention this on the TX board. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..
Yep, this is just the kind of people we want to encourage to emigrate here.
If they were muslims why where they opening Christmas presents?
At the least, that would be a start.
Maybe that's what the killer objected to, the fact that they were celebrating Christmas.
Why do you think the State Dept. is bringing them in as fast as possible? It’s part of the plan. I think the blog called OIL FOR IMMIGRATION pretty much hit the nail on the head.Who the hell needs nukes when you have IMMIGRATION?
Go to the link and read the whole report. I only posted the highlights.
There's witness testimony that attests to the fact that the father forbade his daughter from dating non-Muslim men, and was twisted out of shape about her social life.
What's happened here, fits the 'honor killing' profile like a glove. It can't be ruled out, and in my mind, is the most likely motive for the murders.
Isn’t being a Mooselimb grand?
Maybe, but I’m not going to beat my daughter and set her on fire if she doesn’t comply.
Maybe, but I’m not going to beat my daughter and set her on fire if she doesn’t comply.
I believe it was his wife’s sister and husband, which would make it not so unusual.
Enough with all LEGAL immigration for 20 years. We are letting in too many people who don’t share our culture.
I was pleasantly surprised to read here earlier today that Islam-is-Bad had a feral pig problem.
Zarei owned a popular Dallas, Texas, ranch and was well known in the Iranian-American community, according to WFAA. On Christmas Eve, the family hosted a party at the ranch. The gunman was not invited.
Nasrin Rahmaty had been separated from her husband since March, according to ABC affiliate WFAA. Rahmaty and her two children moved into the Grapevine, Texas, apartment where they were murdered, while Yazdanpanah reportedly remained in the family’s Colleyville, Texas, home, which had been foreclosed on last year, WFAA reported.
Yazdanpanah had been having financial troubles after his real estate business slowed down and had reportedly filed for bankruptcy.
“I swear i never had a good feeling about him when i met him,” Katherine-Anne Coronado, who said she was longtime friends with Nona Yazdanpanah, wrote about her friend’s father on a Facebook memorial page.
Another family friend, Sedi Toumani, agreed.
“During the years, we sensed things, but not to the point he would take his own children’s lives,” Toumani told WFAA.
It would be interesting to hear how DFW area Muslims are reacting to this story today - particularly the women. I'm sure there's a lot less skepticism about the motives in this case, than there is among the general, politically correct public.
I can't imagine the degree of psychic pressure such reports put on Muslim women in Western countries. The repressive effect must be chilling.
I agree 100% on the principles, although I'm sure I differ on the details:
“Certain age”: I've told her 30, but she's 16 now and I'll probably let her go to the prom this year if it's well-chapperoned by someone with the same last name as her. (If your last name is Smith, you might want to reword that rule if you decide to borrow it.)
“Race”: Human. (from one blood He made all the nations)
“Religion” - The true religion of peace - “Therefore having been justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ...” (Romans 5:1)
Obama's real peeps...
House foreclosed on
Property records show that a bank had foreclosed on Aziz Yazdanpanah’s Colleyville house in the 5400 block of Sycamore Court in 2010, but he was still living there, neighbors said.
Baum recalled Nona Yazdanpanah complaining about her parents fighting before they separated.
“I knew they were separated. I knew things were rough, but I never thought anything drastic would happen,” Baum said.
Baum said the separation was very difficult on the family’s father.
Baum said the family was Muslim but celebrated Christmas as a cultural holiday. The parents were originally from Iran.
They were obviously westernized. My baby sister's Muslim husband just attended a family Christmas get-together at my dad's house in San Jose. He partied right along with everyone else.
Still, you never know when 'sudden jihad syndrome' is going to take one of these people. There have been lots and lots of cases of westernized Muslims, who suddenly 'went jihad', to the surprise of everyone who knew them.
He killed the entire family because over the years they sided with his wife and daughter instead of supporting his righteous Muslim views.
It’s in the longer article that Pam Geller cites.
This doesn’t have any of the marks of an ‘honor killing’ other than the perp was apparently a Muslim male. The name is Iranian.
Do we know for sure the family was Muslim? They were celebrating Christmas, with a tree, and gifts and wrapping all found at the massacre site. Not only was the daughter killed as is the norm for ‘honor killings, but everyone in the apartment, including the perp.
Whatever is being said now on the memorial Facebook site, yesterday the daughter’s best friend was quoted talking about how the dad was such a great guy. Lots of quotes about him being a ‘good guy’ and that those who knew him were shocked. Too many conflicting stories on this for any to have credibility yet.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

I suspect the story will be dropped by our LWM if the “Religion of peace” is involved. None of these perfect people could ever do something like this </sarc>
Honor(??) killings in Canada:
He, his second wife Tooba Mohammad Yahya, and their oldest son Hamed are pleading not guilty to four counts each of first-degree murder.
Sisters Sahar, 19-year-old Zainab and 13-year old-Geeti, plus Mr. Shafias first wife Rona Amir Mohammad, were found June 30 2009 in a black Nissan submerged at the Kingston Mills locks outside this city.
Rona Shafia, left and Sahar Shafia, in a photo recovered from Sahar’s cellphone, taken June 26, 2009 while the Shafia family was in Niagara Falls.
But Mr. Shafias two and a half hours of examination-in-chief was riddled with inconsistencies. At one point, for instance, he said he and Ms. Yahya had been at the Kingston Mills area before, apparently meaning on other holidays; at another, he said hed never seen the area until Kingston Police showed him the accident scene.
And despite his self-portrait as a loving and kind father whose daughters called him daddy, it was evident he was still furious that Sahar had a boyfriend and that she and Zainab were dressing in short skirts.
I was not happy with this, he said of his purported discovery, after the four died, of a photo of Sahar with a boys arms around her. I didnt expect this of my children.
Mr. Kemp put to him some of the most damaging statements Mr. Shafia made on police wiretaps which are now exhibits at trial notably his furious wish that the devil s- on their graves.
So, it's not unusual for Muslim men to kill their wives' sisters and their husbands while they're 'honor killing' their own daughters?
The gunman had some prior dealings with police
Santa Claus killings: Financially strapped dad planned family massacre, Texas police say
A father dressed as Santa Claus arrived to his family’s Christmas party with two guns, executed his entire family and then killed himself — and planned the entire thing, police said Tuesday.
Police believe the Christmas Day massacre in Grapevine, which left seven people dead still surrounded by Christmas presents and wrapping paper, was premeditated, Grapevine Police Sgt. Robert Eberling said.
Eberling would not officially identify the shooter or the victims, family friends identified the gunman as Aziz “Bob” Yazdanpanah. Last ear, a bank foreclosed on Yazdanpanah’s house, and he separated from his wife in the spring.
Yazdanpanah’s wife and two children are believed to be among the dead.
The gunman had some prior dealings with at least two other police departments but not Grapevine Police, according to Eberling. He did not say what kind of dealings, or when or how many incidents there were.
Totally agree. Every country in the Western world is committing quick cultural suicide by allowing in a flood of foreigners from non-Western countries.
Acclimation to a new culture usually takes a couple of generations, even when the immigrant parents are determined to adopt the new country as their homeland.
Some countries, such as France, have had such liberal admission policies, that they now have huge swaths of their country that are essentially foreign soil. We've got that to a large degree in many of our major Southwestern cities.
That’s what happens when you go from the ‘melting pot’ to the ‘tossed salad.’
Given the mixed genetic background of my own family, I can't help but agree.
I care a lot more about the character, intelligence, and aptitude of my children's prospective mates, than what gene pool they come from.
