Skip to comments.Muslim woman's death questioned by conservative activist ( Honor killing )
Posted on 05/21/2011 6:24:13 PM PDT by george76
TAMPA - The police evidence photo shows Fatima Abdallah's lifeless body on her brother's new Tampa living room floor. She lived there in a gated subdivision, a private investigator says, with three other Muslim families, shunned and divorced because she could not produce children.
Conservative activist David Caton says he knows what it was.
"This was what you would call an honor killing," he said.
Acting on neighbor tips and the private eye's work, Caton, of the Florida Families Association is pushing police to reopen the case, insisting Abdallah died because her family believed she had dishonored them under Islamic law.
Yet the Hillsborough Medical Examiner ruled the 48-year-old Abdallah's death was an accident, that during an argument with her mother, she threw herself to the floor, smashing her face into a coffee table, and dying of a brain hemorrhage.
Police across the country have been investigating so-called honor killings, where women and girls die at their own family's hands for dishonoring them under Islamic law.
In Clayton County, outside Atlanta, police say Sandella Rashid was choked to death because she'd divorced the Pakistani man he'd arranged for her to marry. Said Detective Mike Christian, "he told us that he had killed his daughter that he didn't not want the family dishonored by divorce".
Closer to home, Caton says the closing of Abdallah's death case is proof to him that Islamic law is affecting how Florida's laws are enforced.
"Islamization of this country is the greatest threat to our way of life, our American way of life as we know it today,"

“This was what you would call an honor killing”
Islam - the religion which tells you with which hand to wipe your ass.
“threw herself to the floor, smashing her face...” HAHAHA! Is this a joke? Is this the best those buffoons in the ME’s office could come up with?
For starters, it doesn’t pass the common sense test.
Yes, every day throughout the US, thousands of women just “throw themselves” on the floor and die.
What utter and complete bull shit.
Yeah, people always throw themselves on floor, miss and smash her head on a coffee table.
I live in Tampa and this is the first I have heard of it.
The Tampa Police Department:
1. Did not catch the fact that Muhammad called 911 dispatch and not his brother Ali as the TPD report states.
2. Did not catch the fact that Muhammad told 911 dispatch a different version of what happened to Fatima than he told detectives on the scene.
3. Relied upon a family member instead of an independent translator to translate the account of the only alleged witness to Fatima s death. That witness left the country just days after Fatima died.
4. Did not verify the travel of one of Fatimas brothers from Ft. Myers to Tampa which was the assumed reason for the 2 ½ hour delay before anyone in the family called 911.
5. Did not properly account or resolve how Fatimas lower right ribs 4 thru 9 were broken and other injuries were sustained to her face and mouth.
6. Did not fully investigate or identify blood evidence on a large shirt, floor and stairs.
7. Did not interview neighbors.
8. General Offense report completed by various police personnel qualified the Cause of Death as Homicide and Undetermined and Unexplained but was reclassified to Accident by Medical Examiner.
I was born and raise in Tampa until 18 and the Police force was the dumbest I ever seen.
Police report, autopsy report, crime scene photo
Oh please!!! I often throw myself down and smash my face into our coffee table when my husband and I argue./s
Would the last person still finding any honor in the application of law and justice in this country please turn the lights out when you're done? This country is completely frickin insane.
When the bakshish (bribe) speaks any BS explanation is accepted.
that is the mystery to me. ...why the head in the sand attitude. we have 1000 years of this. many of the Saints in Spain, under the “enlightened” Muslim rule we hear of, were basically honor killings. ...everywhere there is an increase of Muslims, there is an increase of honor killings. (and anyone who thinks it isn’t underreported, is nuts. Phyllis Chesler has been a voice in the wilderness about this.)
...and for every honor killing, there are 1000 women who are terrified in submission. i myself dated a muslim woman, who had a masters degree, yet she was terrified (i LITERALLY saw her shaking in fear!), just to be seen in a chucky cheese with me and my child.
That comment would make a great tag line !!! 8^)
Is the medical examiner muslim?
R.I.P. Fatima Abdallah.
So she was aiming for the floor, but missed and hit the coffee table instead. With her head. By mistake.
How many times did she do this before she had the brain hemorrhage?
He may have no stake and simply be incompetent and/or lazy. Many MEs have made the wrong call in the past.
