Honor Killing in Arizona: Muslim Dad & Arranged Marriage

"Iraqi dad's 'spit' defense in Ariz. 'honor slay,'" AP
A fanatical Iraqi-born Muslim charged with killing his beautiful daughter because she wanted to live a normal American life whined yesterday that he ran her over by accident -- because he was concentrating on spitting at another woman.

Faleh Almaleki -- whose murder trial began in Phoenix -- sent his Jeep crashing into daughter Noor Almaleki, 20, on Oct. 20, 2009, in a parking lot after she left his abusive home to live with her boyfriend's family and refused an arranged marriage, officials said.

Prosecutors have called the woman's death an "honor killing," referring to a practice in some Islamic countries in which someone -- often a woman who is believed to have shamed the family -- is killed.

The unforgivable "shame" Noor brought on her father was a taste for fast food, texting her friends with the greeting "dude" and liking clothes from Forever 21, according to a report in Marie Claire magazine.

Almaleki's lawyer said his client was only trying to demonstrate his disgust with the woman standing next to Noor -- her boyfriend's mother -- and wound up hitting them both.

But a prosecutor said in opening remarks that Almaleki was so enraged by his daughter's Westernization that he "revved and raced" his car directly at his child.

"Noor wanted to live her life like those her own age, but the defendant would not allow it," said Laura Reckart.

After Almaleki moved in with her boyfriend's family, her father told the dad that if Noor didn't leave, "something bad was going to happen," a court document said....

Noor was in a coma for two weeks before dying, while Khalaf survived.

Almaleki -- who fled to Mexico, then London, where he was arrested -- has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of an accident.

Almaleki murdered his daughter for not being Muslim enough.

He then charged the prosecution with racism should they pursue the death penalty. But Faleh Hassan Almaleki should have been given the death penalty. He cried "racism" when it was being considered. His lawyer said at the time:

"An open process provides some level of assurance that there is no appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs," Little wrote, referring to County Attorney Andrew Thomas' Christian faith.

A Muslim father runs over and kills his daughter with his car because she wasn't Muslim enough, but justice cannot be served because that would be "Christian" "islamophobia." We can't seek the death penalty "for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs," but he can kill his daughter for his religious and political (sharia) beliefs.

Oh, and Islam is not a race, but why split hairs when a bogus victimhoood narrative works so well and the media sheeple are only to happy to go along with it?
