First Time FBI Calls Case an 'Honor Killing'
Fox News ^ | October 14, 2008 | Maxim Lott

Posted on 10/14/2008 8:45:53 AM PDT by Sopater

Almost a year after two teenage girls were found dead — allegedly executed by their father — in the back seat of a taxicab in Texas, the FBI is saying for the first time that the case may have been an "honor killing."

Sarah Said, 17, and her sister Amina, 18, were killed on New Year's Day, but for nine months authorities deflected questions about whether their father — the prime suspect and the subject of a nationwide manhunt — may have targeted them because of a perceived slight upon his honor.

Since when does America call cold-blooded, premeditated murder -— an “honor killing”??? This will have Obama drooling all over himself.

They escape their hell to only drag us down to there level. I have asked my Congressman to submit legislation outlawing Honor Killings.

I realize, murder is murder and we have laws but, we need to specifically state honor killings have no business here.

Whoa! The FBI figured this out within a year?

This means they’ll catch the real Anthrax Mailer in 2057!

There is no 'honor' in pisslam.

A barbarian cult spawned by a pedophile.

Next up: Shar’ia Law being upheld in the US justice system. So much for the “hate crime” classification. The father was justified. Thank you, come again! Nothing to see here....

Truth is important, sometimes.
Why don’t we just call these DISHONOR killings and be done with it?

Maybe I missed it but I didn’t read the part where it says the FBI is dropping the case as a result of labeling it an “honor killing.” They can call it whatever they like as long as they get the dad and put a few mgs of the country’s finest pentothal, pavulon, and potassium chloride in him.

I do not read this news as the FBI or other gov’t agencies “decriminalizing” murder.

Maybe it’ll be classified as a hate crime.

Because in Islam, women aren’t really people. They have no souls.

It’s more like shooting your dog.

They only tolerate women for reproductive purposes.

There are no honor killings, only killings. There are no hate crimes, only crimes. Dressing it up with an adjective is excusing it. IMHO.

This is such a sad story. When it first came out they released the call to 911 from one of the girls. She was crying and telling them that their father shot them and they were dying. At that time it was thought that he took refuge at a Masque and it was thought they may have helped him escape.

The victim's brother is also implicated in the murders. I believe that the brother of the victims is hiding or helped the father leave the country. The brother is a rabid Islamofascist that openly hates the US. From what I have read about the case, the brother is just as guilty as the father. I could have found both of them but the FBI is being politically correct in their searches and the treatment of the case. The brother/son is the key to the case.

I understand your feelings, but truly these “honor killings” have been happening for YEARS here in the U.S. This is simply the first time they have called them what they are. So, following is my response (not directed to you specifically):

FINALLY - The FBI is calling these murders what they are!!! How many young women have been killed in these “honor killings” that they have failed to properly identify?

It’s SO about time that the FBI has termed these what they are. NOW, finally people may start to realize that not all Muslims in this country are so-called moderates. Now, perhaps we can start addressing some of these issues.

I would love for CAIR and other Islamic organizations here in America to come out and denounce these “honor killings” as barbaric, but I won’t hold my breath - I know better than that.

I do understand where you are coming from, however, I have to disagree with you. It IS a good thing that the FBI is calling this an “honor killing”. People need to understand that this is a Muslim cultural thing. People need to realize that these premeditated murders are accepted and encouraged in radical Islam. And, they need to know that it is happening right here in the U.S. and not just overseas.

Now, at least we can start addressing these things in public, and show people that not all Muslims in America are so-called “Moderates”. AND, if Muslims here in America do NOT come out and now condemn these actions, it will prove even more what we are trying to warn people about.

If we were to continue to classify these things as “just murder” then people would not understand the issues that surround this. That’s why I have to respectfully disagree with you. It’s not as if they are saying there IS honor in these killings, but that is the term that is used within the Muslim communities that accept these things. And, we need to correctly identify it so we can start to address the problem.

Why waste money on those expensive chemicals? How about an IV of bleach instead?
