Iraqi Woman In US Dead - Father Runs Her Over For Being Too Westernized i.e. Non-Muslim.

This is Noor Faleh Almaleki. SHE IS DEAD. Her father killed her.

Because she "shamed" him in doing things that HE believed were against his traditional Muslim beliefs.

DO YOU REALIZE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN OUR BELIEF IN FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY WE WANT AND THIS ACT? This is a disgusting, horrifying and terribly TRUE story about a father who ran over his daughter with his car because he felt her behavior was shaming him and his family - because they were against his traditional Muslim beliefs!!! We've talked about this and seen examples of this from the Middle Eastern region of the world before......


The world getting small enough yet for you to get involved?

Ugh, I'm SO disgusted. What about you?

DO YOU REALIZE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN OUR BELIEF IN FREEDOM TO LIVE THE WAY WE WANT AND THIS ACT? The connection is simple...Our beliefs in being Wiccan and Pagan are about freedom for ourselves and for others. And our Wiccan and Pagan ideals also guide to life freely but WITHOUT INFRINGEMENT on others and their rights to their own lives.... This also reflects in the Wiccan greeting: "Merry Meet - Merry Part". Stick with me now...

"Traditional Muslim" beliefs still need to be defined by someone from that community... but Freedom is NOT part of the standard Muslim lifestyle. AND MURDER seems to be APPROVED simply based on the behavioral evidence. Time and time again I see examples of this in the world, and now in America. The horrible thing is that this is not 'extremism' but seems to be 'acceptable'. This is horrifying because as a people, Americans are afraid/ unwilling to review this as a problem because it seems prejudicial or politically incorrect. The problem is, it exists! Like a good detective we have to look at the facts. We have to be willing to accept that beliefs in some Muslim sects MURDER IS APPROVED. And then we have to be willing to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

One of the actions I'm obviously taking is to share this story, and pray that this father gets at least life in prison. Read the story. Tell me what you are going to do.

Here is the story reprinted from where I found it at HuffingtonPost.com... if you can't use the link:

Noor Faleh Almaleki Dies: Iraqi Woman In US Dead After Father Runs Her Over For Being Too Westernized

PHOENIX — A young Iraqi woman whose father allegedly hit her with his car because she had become too Westernized died from her injuries Monday after laying in a coma for nearly two weeks.

Noor Faleh Almaleki, 20, underwent spinal surgery and had been in a hospital since Oct. 20, when police say her father ran down her and her boyfriend's mother with his Jeep as the women were walking across a parking lot in the west Phoenix suburb of Peoria.

The other woman, Amal Khalaf, is expected to survive.

Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, fled after the attack but was arrested Thursday when he arrived at Atlanta's airport, where he was sent from the United Kingdom after authorities denied him entrance.

Peoria police interviewed him and brought him back to Arizona over the weekend, but have declined to release what Almaleki said to them.

At a court hearing over the weekend in Phoenix, county prosecutor Stephanie Low told a judge that Almaleki admitted to committing the crime.

"By his own admission, this was an intentional act and the reason was that his daughter had brought shame on him and his family," Low said. "This was an attempt at an honor killing."

Family members had told police that Almaleki attacked his daughter because he believed she had become too Westernized and was not living according to his traditional Iraqi values.

Almaleki, wearing a jail uniform, said only his name and birth date during the hearing. He has declined requests to be interviewed.

Almaleki had faced charges of aggravated assault, but Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef said the charges will be upgraded in light of Noor Faleh Almaleki's death.

Police said the Almalekis moved to Peoria from Iraq in the mid-1990s.

Muslim's are slow to the concept of Freedom, and the Charter of Human Rights. Pathetic and sad as hell this is. We should stop talking and start doing something about this!
This is a horrible example of something that is much too common. "Honor killing" there is no honor in killing. People just cannot seem to let each other live their lives. People just cannot seem to love each other through opposing beliefs. Where is the unconditional love that should be between a father and daughter, a mother and son, lovers, friends, partners, strangers, people. Killing has nothing to do with God/Goddess. It has nothing to do with honor. It has nothing to do with love, and yet it is still seen by some as justified in these respects. It is not just certain sects of Muslims. Examples of it are everywhere from all places. How can we find a way to fight such hate? How can we continue to try and love each other through the horrible things we, as humans, do to each other every day. Where is the God/Goddess type love? The unconditional love?

Updated news link above takes you to a list of related articles explaining that now the father culprit who mowed his daughter down has finally been indicted in court.

I found some interesting other links discussing the issue.. Thought you might also... take a look.
I feel sad for this loss of life. It's a true shame that things like this happen everyday. I wish with all of my being that humans could live at peace with one another and the Earth. Perhaps one day we will. Blessed Be.
this happen all the time and well the dad is a crazey pice of shit lets hope he gets the same karma as her
