This is chilling. This is in Texas.

Iranian grad student, activist killed in Houston KSAT News (hat tip Armaros)

HOUSTON - A woman whom Houston police described as an activist on behalf of Iranian women's civil rights was found shot dead at the wheel of her car after it crashed into a townhouse garage.

Houston police said the shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday in a posh development near the Galleria.

According to investigators, someone walked up to the passenger's side of 30-year-old Gelareh Bagherzadeh's car and shot her in the head.

Bagherzadeh's body was found inside her running car, detectives said.

"When the officer arrived, the car's tires were still spinning," Officer J.C. Padilla said. "He had to reach in and turn off the motor."

Bagherzadeh's car was found at the back of the town home complex, and police said she had driven past her parents' home near the front of the complex.

"We don't know if she was being followed at the time," Sgt. Richard Bolton said.

Investigators said Bagherzadeh was studying genetic research at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and was an only child.

Officers said Bagherzadeh's ex-boyfriend was on the phone with her when he heard what may have been the crash and gunshots.

"He said she screamed for her life," said Lorena Lopez, one of Bagherzadeh's close friends. "He heard screeching and he assumed it was a car accident."

The ex-boyfriend was questioned, but is not considered a suspect.

Detectives said they want to speak with her current boyfriend and other friends to try to piece together what happened.

"She has no enemies," Bolton said. "She was a very caring and loving person."

I’m going with the 24 hour rule on this one, and that might get doubled. We just don’t know enough yet. It certainly bears watching though.

They already said they have NO IDEA what the motive was, so there was no reason to think she was targeted.

Move along now...

“She has no enemies,” Bolton said. “She was a very caring and loving person.”

If you are an Iranian women’s civil rights activist, you have enemies for the simple reason that you breathing.

Doesn’t surprise me a bit. All the Muslims live over there and no body goes to the Galleria anymore.

You can bet the farm that neither CAIR nor the ACLU will be on the news demanding the killer be brought to justice.

No evidence of robbery, assault, or car-jacking. What do you suppose the motive was?

Even if the shooter is yelling Allah akubar, it will never be seen as a Muslim crime.

Yes. All too often we forget that we live in a free society, and that other countries are not so free, and they do not look kindly upon those who meddle in their affairs or whom they see as threats to their control.

If you are an Iranian nuclear physicist, you have enemies for the simple reason that you breathing.

Payback?

“”She has no enemies,” Bolton said...Bagherzadeh was part of Sabaz Houston, a local Iranian organization that supports the green movement against the current Iranian government. “

She had plenty of enemies...the only question is whether she knew it.

We have agents and thugs from all over the world in this country due to our open borders. Was once taking a picture of the back entrance to a Hotel near DFW airport. Was thinking of renting a ballroom in the hotel and wanted to note the access. Anyway this gentlemen was walking out of the parking lot and to the back entrance of the hotel. He saw me taking a picture, stopped and said no picture in a heavy Russian accent. I thought at first he may be stopping to not mess up my picture. Told him not to worry cause he would not mess up this image (just wanted a record of the access way). Anyway I tried to take another picture, and he then shouted no picture and gave me this nasty stare. Then I finally realized what the problem was. Gave him the thumbs up and said, oh, understand.

Geez. Close the borders already you idiots. Starting to feel like a Roman during the beginning of the Dark Ages.

Like me, you notice the time of this incident.

Also, she was on the phone to her exboyfriend, at that hour of the night.

NEW YORK — Federal prosecutors Thursday took steps to seize four U.S. mosques, including one in HOUSTON, and a Fifth Avenue skyscraper owned by a nonprofit Muslim organization long suspected of being secretly controlled by the IRANIAN government.

“For two decades, the Alavi Foundation’s affairs have been directed by various Iranian officials, including Iranian ambassadors to the United Nations, in violation of a series of American laws,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. .............
