Iraqi National Executed in Okla.
By ROCHELLE HINES, Associated Press Writer
McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - An Iraqi national who stabbed his wife and her uncle to death in 1992 was executed Thursday.
Sahib Al-Mosawi, 53, was sentenced to death in 1994. He did not request a clemency hearing and had no appeals pending.
He was executed by injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary.
He met his wife and her family at a refugee camp in Saudi Arabia after they left Iraq in 1991 during the Persian Gulf War (news - web sites). Their marriage was arranged, and the couple and her family later moved to Oklahoma City.
They had marital problems and Inaam Al-Nashi moved in with her uncle, Mohammad Al-Nashi. She sought a protective order soon after the couple's son was born because Al-Mosawi threatened her and her family in an argument over the boy's name.
Two weeks later, on Nov. 28, 1992, he came to Al-Nashi's home and became angered that his wife was going to a party with friends. Al-Mosawi stabbed the uncle, who was trying to make him leave.
Al-Mosawi then stabbed his wife and her sister, Fatima. She was stabbed three times, but survived.
Al-Mosawi was the 18th prisoner executed in Oklahoma this year. Three more condemned inmates have exhausted all appeals, and the attorney general's office is seeking to have their execution dates set.
I am not sure what happened to the parents - I know they were convicted and either one or both died in prison.
The point is, though, Islamic immigrants *especially* have a phenomenal record of abusing both wives and daughters. This will just get worse as their numbers increase.
