    The case of a Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman in July has been handed over to prosecutors for possible charges, investigators and prosecutors announced Tuesday. Officer Mohamed Noor fatally shot Justine Damond, a 40-year-old life coach who was engaged to be married, on July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Noor's partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, told investigators that he was startled by a loud noise right before Damond approached the driver's side window of their police SUV. Harrity, who was driving, said Noor then...

    The records show Officer Mohamed Noor was hired as a cadet in March 2015. In September of that year, he received a letter saying he passed his Peace Officer Licensing Examination and was eligible to become a licensed, sworn officer. Noor is on paid leave after he killed Justine Damond, a 40-year-old spiritual teacher who was engaged to be married, on July 15 after she called 911 twice to report a possible rape. Noor, who was in the passenger seat of a squad car, shot across his partner in the driver's seat and hit Damond. His partner told authorities that...

    Six people have been convicted of murder by a Swedish district court in an honor violence case in which a man was killed after having an affair with a married woman. The case involved 23-year-old victim Ramin Sherzaj, who was bundled into a car from a square in Gävle in April of 2016, then later found murdered in Sundsvall. Police were first alerted by a jogger who saw a screaming man being taken into a car by “some guys with hoods”. The man was beaten during the journey, then strangled to death. The murder was an act of revenge due...

    Katyal is right: honor killings are Islamic. Islamic law specifies no penalty for a parent who kills a child. And it’s not just Muslim migrants: for years we have suspected the cover-up of Islamic honor killings in America. I have tried for years to determine how many young Muslim girls died in the US, and under what circumstances. There is no central data bank with that sort of information. We know the media refuses to call it what it is; do we believe that law enforcement would? The Pentagon can’t even say jihad. Well, maybe now…. under Trump, unless...
  • Murdered Pakistani girls replaced with duplicates

    In a story worthy of a Star Trek episode, five Pakistani girls were murdered for the crime of dancing with a boy, and then, when authorities came to investigate, they found the Pakistanis replaced with duplicates. It didn't take a tricorder to figure out that while these were not robots or shapeshifters, neither were these the same girls, but rather close relatives of the murdered girls. It was just a few seconds, a video clip of several young women laughing and clapping to music, dressed for a party or a wedding in orange headscarves and robes with floral patterns. Then...

    While Ohio Police are baffled at what motive Jamal Mansour had when he took a gun into his daughter's bedroom and shot her in the head twice, but the clues are there for anyone who knows the history and teachings of Islam. As police seem to overlook the obvious, one author on Islamic "honor" killings believes he knows the answer. Jamal Mansour, 63, who migrated from Jordan to the US and became a naturalized citizen, took a gun into his daughter's bedroom at around 1:15am Tuesday morning. He then shot 27-year-old Tahani Mansour twist in her forehead. She died nearly...

    For two months, over the thunder of machines at the steel mill, the men taunted Mubeen Rajhu about his sister. Even now, they laugh at how easy it was to make him lose his temper. Some people had seen Tasleem in their Lahore slum with a Christian man. She was 18, a good Muslim girl, out in public with a man. Even though the man had converted to Islam out of love for her, this couldn’t be allowed. “Some guys got to know that his sister was having a relationship,” says Ali Raza, a co-worker at the mill. “They would...

    When asked to explain why the father would shoot his own daughter, family members blamed a medical condition; they said Mansour is a diabetic. Yes, that’s it — diabetes. And not only did no one in the media question this, they actually deliberated whether the medical case could be made. That’s how sick, broken and subdued our fourth estate has become. “Neighbors: Family ‘kept to themselves’ at home where police say dad shot his daughter”, FOX 19, By Denise Zarrella, Reporter, September 27th 2016: ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) – A 63-year-old father is facing murder, felonious assault, and domestic violence...

    Pakistani model and social media starlet Qandeel Baloch has been murdered in the city of Multan, in an apparent 'honor killing.' Local media report Pakistan police as saying that she was killed by her younger brother, Daniyal Jugnnoo, aka Wasim, who is now on the run. Reports differ as to whether Baloch was strangled or shot dead. They are also unclear as to whether her murder took place on Friday night or on Saturday. Baloch, 26, real name Fouzia Azeem, had stoked controversy in the country by openly living a Westernized lifestyle and posting her exploits on social media including...

    A controversial female celebrity dubbed “Pakistan”s Kim Kardashian” has been strangled to death by her brother in what appears to be the country’s highest-profile honor killing. Qandeel Baloch, 26, had shot to fame in recent months with a series of divisive publicity stunts starkly at odds with the country’s conservative values, most notably promising to strip for Pakistan’s cricket team if it beat India in the recent cricket T20 World Cup. Her Facebook page on which she regularly posted provocative “selfie” photographs had 750,000 followers, but had also become a target of misogynistic abuse and threats. […] Hundreds of women...

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Pakistani police on Thursday arrested 15 members of a tribal council accused of ordering the burning alive of a young girl for helping a couple to elope in a so-called "honour killing", police said. The 16-year-old girl was set on fire last week in the town of Donga Gali, about 50 km (30 miles) northeast of the capital, Islamabad, on the orders of the council, said district police chief Saeed Wazir. Police said the honour killing was ordered as punishment for what the council deemed irreparable damage to the village's reputation. The couple appeared to have escaped....

    Her odyssey began when she fell in love against her family's wishes and ran off to marry her boyfriend. Hours after the marriage, her father and uncle sweet-talked her into their car and took her to a spot along a riverbank to murder her for her defiance — an "honor killing." First they beat Saba, then her uncle held her as her own father pointed a pistol at her head and pulled the trigger.

    This is an excerpt from a larger Asra Nomani piece on honor killings in the Wall Street Journal. It's quite a dark look at what life under Islamic mores is like for women. In one particularly poignant chapter, Ms. Zoepf steps through the doors of a girls' prison in Syria, where 16-year-old Zahra al-Azzo was jailed for being raped. (That's right, they jailed her.) The prison is a sort of holding facility for girls like Zahra who are at risk of being murdered by their families in a so-called honor killing. Yet there is little to protect the young...

    COACHELLA, California — Holy prayers at a mosque here on Friday were canceled with families gawking behind fire lines after discovering the front of their holy house had become one big fireball. Late Friday night, authorities announced that they believe the fire was deliberately set, and the local branch of the FBI is investigating as a possible hate crime. In addition, a person of interest has been detained, but not identified. Members of the congregation are blaming GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for setting the ugly tone that charred their house of worship. The mosque began to burn at around...

    Husband Sets Wife On Fire In Pakistan 'Honour Killing' A Pakistani man and his father have been arrested in the country's latest so-called "honour killing" after they set the son's wife alight for leaving the house without asking his permission, police said Sunday. Muhammad Siddique became enraged on learning that his wife, Shabana Bibi, 25, had visited her sister without first asking him if she could go out, her brother Muhammad Azam said. Siddique and his father then beat Bibi before dousing her with petrol and setting her on fire in Central Pakistan's Muzaffargarh district on Friday, Azam said. Bibi...
