Terror in the heartland: Double murder “honor killing”

Charges have finally been brought against a Muslim family in connection with a tragic double “honor killing” in Houston, Texas.

Yes folks, it’s happening right here in the heartland of America.

In 2012, 30-year-old Gelareh Bagherzadeh, was shot to death after she supposedly helped convert Ali Irsan’s daughter from Islam to Christianity. Irsan was charged with capital murder. His wife, Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, and their 21-year-old son, Nasim, are charged with murder.

CBS News reports “Irsan is also reportedly accused of killing 28-year-old Coty Beavers, his daughter’s husband, 10 months after Bagherzadeh was shot to death. Coty Beavers was the twin brother of Bagherzadeh’s boyfriend.”

“These two murders are linked by the belief on the defendant’s part that his honor as a father and a Muslim has been violated by his daughter, who defied his rule and married a Christian man,” said Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson.

But as our own president, Barack Hussein Obama once said, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” – and apparently in the case of these two murder victims, he was right.

  1. What other religion does horrible things like this in this day and time? They seem to preach peace but only if you are with them. I hear people get into different debates about different religions and issues but they don’t go out and kill their family members or friends just for not believing like them. I know there have been instances that people have killed for “religious” reasons but Islam seems to come up repeatedly for horrendous acts. This is so violent and disgusting. To them, to die or kill is an honor so how can we be protected from this? It was just a matter of time before it came to the USA. I really hope they don’t get way with this.

    • You speak of them as if they were human. They are dangerous animals. They will never stop as long as any non-muslim exists. It will come down to us or them. I chose us.

    • How quick we forget the KKK lynching in the name of Christianity. Just like not all Christians were clan members not all Muslims are bad people.

      • Get real. If push came to shove, all muslims would kneel and show their A**s to
        Mujamid and go fanatical like the japs did for their emperior herito.

  2. Once again, the only peace offered by the “religion of peace” is the peace of the grave. May the dead rest in peace, and may justice be served.

  3. actually honor killings have happened several times times, like the teenage girl recorded begging her father not to kill her becuase she had dishonored the family and more, they just aren’t called honor killings

  4. This is a horrific barbaric act committed by a religious radical extremist extremist Muslim who I hope is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Ms Hickford, of course, decided to lie and quote the President out of context in order to associate this horrible crime with the President.

    • I would love to know how your perceived her remark as being a lie, quoting the POTUS out of context. There was no context to his statement, when he made it.

      • The partial quote, which you think was not in any context, came from a speech wherein Obama called on Muslims to stand up for the rights of Christians in the Middle East.

        Showing only one part of what he said deliberately creates a false impression that makes him sound like a muslim fanatic.

      • The quote was part of his reference to different groups however it was distinct and is seperate from the other statements he made, he did not qualify it as being in support of Christians in that particular statement.

      • I disagree. Here it is in full context…
        Notice that he not only speaks of standing up for Christians just a few lines before in that speech, but also immediately after the “prophet of Islam” line, in the very next sentence he ties it together with standing up for Christians, saying those who oppose defaming of Islam must also oppose defaming of Christians and Jews.
        Here are his exact words….

        “The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt — it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted, “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women —
        it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.

        The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources — it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs, the workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the women and men that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.

        The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

      • No.. but he did call on Muslims to stand up for Christians.
        He condemned the desecration of Christianity and attack on Christians in the same speech where he condemned the slander of Mohammed

      • He said don’t be critical of islam/slander mohammed, he said don’t burn down any churches, he said believe in the Holocaust, and he said don’t mess up pictures/images of JC.

        I think overall the most disturbing part is that he said the future does not belong. . . .

        What exactly was he saying there? What did he mean that the future does not belong to those who call mohammed a filthy disgusting pig if that happens to be their opinion?

        Then who does the future belong to? Islam?

        Obama believes that the future belongs to Islam and those who slander Islam have no future. Now really the future belongs to all of us, but Obama for some reason seems to have a need to especially appease Islam with his word craft.

      • It is clear from the first paragraph of what he said (quoted below) that he was talking about leaving violence and division in the past and the future belonging to those who support each other.
        If you are going to focus only on that phrase… “the future must not belong to”… you may have missed that he said it several times in that speech….

        “The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt”
        “The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources”
        “The future must not belong to those who bully women”

        Below are his exact words.

        ***************************

        “It is time to leave the call of violence and the politics of division behind. On so many issues, we face a choice between the promise of the future, or the prisons of the past. And we cannot afford to get it wrong. We must seize this moment. And America stands ready to work with all who are willing to embrace a better future.

        The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt — it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted, “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women — it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.

        The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources — it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs, the workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the women and men that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.

        The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

      • Quite nice and upright all until he gets to the part about how the prophet of islam is not to be slandered.

        He is saying there is to be no criticism of islam. Why?

        Why can’t we be critical of Islam according to the POTUS?

        We are not “targeting” people of islam and going after them and killing and destroying them like what is happening to the Coptics.

        We are simply using our freedom of speech.

        The message should have been that Islam must accept that they will be criticized just like everyone else in the world – and they cannot kill people over it.

      • Did you really not see the context of “the future must not belong to…” even though he used those words four timed in that statement, including to defend Christians?

        And are you deliberately ignoring the very next sentence he spoke after mentioning slander against the prophet of Islam?

      • I am not ignoring it – I am reading it for exactly what it says. Maybe you are the one who is not really reading what it says.

      It’s a pretty good speech actually, if you read the whole thing and don’t just take parts of it out of context to make people angry.

      • “The future must not belong to those who slander Jesus Christ.”

        He did not say THAT. But he DID say the future does not belong to those who slander mohammed. And the following sentence is not equal to the first.

        https://youtu.be/n1wJtsZEnc0

        We have the right to free speech even if islam does not like what we say. According to the POTUS we do not have free speech regarding islam.

        You really need to comprehend what he is saying.

      • I’m not sure how you can read the passage I just posted and read anything out of it besides a call for religious tolerance from all religions. The message is that people who are religiously intolerant are @ssholes. If you hate Muslims then you’re an @sshole too, but you’re not having your free speech violated until the government forces you to stop acting like an @sshole. If Obama and his jackbooted thugs show up at your door and drag you off to jail for being an @sshole then I will be the first person to call for your immediate release and for him to be impeached. You have a constitutional right to be an @sshole but you can always choose not to be one. That would be nice.

      • He told the whole world not to be critical of Islam or slander islam, don’t burn down churches, believe in the Holocaust, and don’t mess up pictures/images of JC – but apparently slandering JC is ok, but not mohammed.

        One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong LOL > > >
        Something in that list doesn’t belong Paul? Which one is it?

      • Honestly? You shouldn’t do any of those things. But the one that doesn’t belong is “don’t be critical of Islam” because it wasn’t in the speech. At all. In any way whatsoever.

      • Why shouldn’t you slander mohammed Paul? I believe that mohammed was a false prophet. I just slandered mohammed. Why shouldn’t I do that if that is what I think, feel and believe?

        No you should not deface in any way any religious icon or artifact, painting, statue, etc. from any religion on the face of the earth. No one should do that, it is wrong.

        No one should never ever ever arson up on a church or any other building, but especially a church of any kind. It’s arson, it’s against the law and it’s just wrong it’s a house of worship even if it’s not your own style of worship. Or destroy it in some other way.

        No one should never ever deny the Holocaust. That would mean they are complete and total idiots. There is simply too much evidence to deny it happened.

        (btw It’s called conversational paraphrasing and that would mean I restated it using another word, but basically it means the same thing as to being critical or slander or burning or destroying, you get that right? 🙂

        Ok we will try this again since you did said you would try and save me from jail LOL but I basically gave you lots of hints above:

        1 – don’t slander mohammed
        2 – don’t burn churches, (any churches as he did not specify)
        3 – don’t mess up pictures/images/icons of JC
        4 – don’t deny the Holocaust

        Do you see now that #1 does not belong. To slander the prophet of islam is to slander mohammed and to do this is to slander all of islam – that means you cannot speak, talk, protest, make art, write stories, publish cartoons, or have a voiced opinion that is negative in any way shape or form against islam, or you are slandering the prophet of islam and you are slandering islam.

        2 & 3 are physical destruction of property motivated by hate but destruction of a physical thing.

        4 – odd that it is even on the list honestly considering that there are many muslims that rather celebrate for lack of a better word the Holocaust as it had the same objective of their prophet – but then many want to deny it because they don’t want the sympathy for Jews that comes from it’s existence. It’s all rather strange for him to even have throw that in there considering he won’t himself officially recognize the Armenian genocide. Odd how things come back to bite you in the ass LOL.

        So the answer is #1 – our freedom of speech is not a crime but a right. Arson is a crime (or blowing up a church), destruction of property is a crime, and the denial of the Holocaust is just plain ignorance.

      • Look up the definition of slander. It doesn’t mean what you think it means. In any case you are perfectly free to criticize whoever you want but it’s not very nice to defame somebody’s religion. You might find it offensive for somebody to burn an American flag (so do I for that matter although I support their right to do so) other people find it offensive to depict Mohammed in art. Other people have lots of beliefs that I think are nonsense but I don’t rub their noses in it because it would offend them for no good reason.

      • What do you think it means Paul? And what did Obama think when he used that word? I already know the definition of slander 🙂 And also please explain to me how you place a no slander “order” upon millions of people? Not sure on that jurisdiction nor how mohammed could in any way be any more defamed from where he is now.

        The difference is in the reaction to what offends. I won’t throw acid in your face or decapitate you or throw you off a building or stone you to death no matter how badly you have offended me, my religion, my flag. There is a distinction here Paul and I’m thinking the idea of being “nice” just does not mean much from the Islamic POV.

      • 1) Nobody is talking about placing a no slander order on anybody. The point of the speech was that you shouldn’t listen to people who are religiously intolerant. They shouldn’t be put in charge of things. They should be ignored and marginalized until they die of old age without ever having been able to implement their intolerant ideas. In short: the future must not belong to them.

        2) The vast, vast, vast majority of Muslims wouldn’t decapitate you or throw you off a building for insulting their religion either. People think that because most terrorists are Muslim that means most Muslims are terrorists. What it really means is that if you meet a Christian there’s a 99.99999% chance they’re not a terrorist and if you meet a Muslim there’s only a 99.999% chance they’re not a terrorist.

      • 1 🙂 I know it’s not a no slander order, but when the POTUS says these sorts of things, well this is what he wants. He wants no one to slander Islam. He can’t make that happen, but that what he wants. If he didn’t want that he would not have said it even though it is impossible.

        I guess that I clearly see being told that the future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of islam in the opposite way that you do. I look at it as an attack on free speech. We have free speech and that includes being critical of Islam or anything else. You only look at it as him stating that those who are not religious tolerant have no place in the future.

        I’m sorry, but that entire idea is simply not based in reality. It’s wishful and hopeful, but it isn’t how things are going to go down at all.

        You have to know that. Islam isn’t moving over for anyone as a whole. The peaceful tolerant muslims frankly are not the problem really, basically irrelevant as far as the problems are concerned. They are not irrelevant as people in the world, only in regards to religious tolerance and what the world is experiencing with Islam now.

        I spend approx 1/4 of the year in Europe. Mainly France, Denmark and Sweden on business. It is very very different there. And I have seen the changes over the years as I have been doing this since 1992. I have a perspective that I really don’t want what I see in Paris to become what I see in the US and my second home in AU.

        I guess his speech has a different meaning to me from you. But that’s ok. I appreciate your conversation! Cheers and have a good weekend.

  5. How’s this for an idea. Let the islamic fascist muslims honor kill their women. Less muslim egg carriers to propagate more muslims.
