Texas: Muslim murders his sisterís friend in honor killing
Jihad Watch ^ | 9/4/19 | Robert Spencer

for encouraging his sister to marry a Christian

Islamic law forbids Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men. And there will be much, much more of this in America: Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Texas man pleads guilty in 2012 so-called honor killing,” Associated Press, August 30, 2019:

A Texas man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for what prosecutors call the “honor killing” of an Iranian rights activist who was his sister’s friend.

Nasim Irsan pleaded guilty to murder Thursday in Houston. Irsan could have faced life in prison if convicted of capital murder for the January 2012 fatal shooting of Gelareh Bagherzadeh (GEL’-uh-ray buh-GAR’-zuh-day).

Prosecutors say Irsan’s family is Muslim and was angry that his sister wed a Christian and converted. Bagherzadeh encouraged her friend to marry Coty Beavers. He was slain in late 2012.

Irsan’s father, Jordanian immigrant Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, was convicted last year of capital murder in both shootings and sentenced to death….

Maybe someone will honor-kill him now.

Isn’t that how Arab culture is supposed to work?

So how are the other 9% of honor killers? Because only Islam considers murdering family members “Honorable”.

But other people do it is a kindergartner defense.

Religion of peace? Every country Muslims “migrate” to ends up in murder and destruction.

That was my first thought. 91%? The only non-Islamic "honor killings" I have ever heard of are suicides.

I think they are mixing in some killings that fall under some completely different category than "Muslim Honor Killings" where the victim is completely innocent.

The father killed his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, because his daughter married Beavers and converted to Christianity. The father is awaiting (probably longish wait) execution in Texas.

The nerve of someone coming to our country and killing an American for that reason. I can’t say what I think should be done about that sort of thing.

If this ‘family’ had been living in some other country like, perhaps, Pakistan, it would have been much easier on the father&son. Just mention at Friday Prayers that this Christian had seduced the daughter away from the true faith and the entire village would have done the deed overnight! And the authorities would just shrug and say too bad, so sad!

Remember how Hillary wrote about the things a village could do?
