An Honor Killing Revisited

Saturday evening a candle light vigil was held for Sarah and Amina Said, the two girls who were killed here in North Texas by their father for dating non-Muslim boys. Something very disturbing occurred during the vigil;


The brother of two teenagers killed in January defended their father, the prime suspect in the slayings, at a candlelight vigil Saturday night.

Family and friends held the vigil to remember Sarah and Amina Said, who were shot and killed in the back of their father's taxicab at an Irving hotel in January...

During the vigil, the girls' brother took the microphone, saying his father did not kill his sisters.

"They pulled the trigger, not my dad," he said.
The brother blames his sisters for their deaths, he sides with the father. That is chilling to say the least.

It has been over two months since the murder of these two girls, two months and the father is still on the loose. Who is hiding him? What agency or group of people is at work keeping him safe from arrest. Has he returned to Egypt? If so, how did he get there? Where is the moderate Muslim voice in our community raising up against this travesty?

You can find background on this incident here and here.

Don't be irresponsible JR! You know Islam is a religion of peace!


And they wonder why the western world views them as savages.

Savages wouldn't lie about being savages.

Murderous cowards is what they are.
