Honor Killing in Big D


Fox 4 is reporting a very disturbing story out of Irving. A double murder. The father is the suspect. And yes, it involves the religion of peace.

IRVING, Texas — A Dallas-area father may have shot his two teenage daughters to death because their Westernized clothes and behavior brought him shame, family members say.

Investigators say either Sarah Yaser Said, 17, or Amina Yaser Said, 18, called 911 around 7:30 p.m., saying she had been shot, but could not identify her location. Police were able to trace the call to a general location, but found nothing.

An hour later, someone reported a suspicious vehicle near the Omni Mandalay hotel in Las Colinas, which turned out to be the taxi.

FOX 4 spoke with two of Said’s family members who want to remain anonymous. They say Sarah and Amina dressed in Western clothes and listened to pop music. They described Said as angry with his daughters for not acting like proper Muslim girls.

Though police have not named the motive, in some Muslim countries fathers kill their children if they feel their honor has been ruined.

The islamic society of North America sprang into action to remind us that this has absolutely nothing to do with islam.

“It has a lot to do with the culture, and nothing to do with the faith,” said Azhar Aziz of the ISNA.

Gee, I feel so much better knowing that.

  1. These appear to be dishonor killings. They show the classic signs.

  2. Those poor young girls.
    God Bless’em.

  3. Sad that they may have grown up in a different culture, yet they couldn’t escape the one they came from.

  4. Hunh….and your nic and avatar are showing at the same time.

    Gateway Pundit has this story up, along with pics of the two beautiful young girls. It would appear to me, that maybe the mother of the girls is American, but I could be wrong.
    /sad

  5. What a senseless tragedy. Thank you for speaking about this. We in the West need to prosecute and punish the perpetrators of these vicious vengeance murders against (young) women to the full extent of our laws.

    There is never honor in murdering your female relatives — anywhere.
