Family convicted in Canada 'honor murders' [Quadruple Morder: Three Daughters and First Wife!]

Family Convicted in Canada 'Honor Murders' Paula Newton. January 29, 2012

A Canadian jury Sunday convicted three members of a family of Afghan immigrants of the "honor" murders of four female relatives whose bodies were found in an Ontario canal.

Mohammed Shafia, 58; his wife, Tooba Mohammad Yahya, 42; and their son, Hamed, 21, were found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of Shafia's three teenage daughters and his first wife in his polygamous marriage. Sunday's verdicts followed a three-month trial, in which jurors heard wiretaps of Shafia referring to his daughters as "whores" and ranting about their behavior.

All three were sentenced to life in prison immediately after their convictions, with no chance of parole for 25 years.

"This is a good day for Canadian justice. Our democratic society protects the rights of all," Gerard Laarhuis, the chief prosecutor in the case, told reporters outside the courthouse in Kingston. "It's a very bad day, because this jury found that four strong, vivacious and freedom-loving women were murdered by their own family."

At least one Shafia family supporter interrupted Laarhuis with shouts of "lies" and called the verdict a "miscarriage of justice." But others cheered the verdict as Laarhuis continued.

The three Shafia sisters -- Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17, and Geeti, 13 -- were found dead inside a car that plunged into the Rideau Canal in Kingston on June 30, 2009. Shafia's first wife, 50-year-old Rona Amir Mohammad, also died.

The verdicts came on the second day of deliberations for a seven-woman, five-man jury in Kingston, about 280 km (175 miles) west of the family's home in Montreal. There was no immediate comment from defense attorneys.

Prosecutors said the girls' father, mother and brother all plotted to kill the four women in an "honor" murder.

Islam is a vile and despicable religion. Unless a Muslim explicitly renounces Sharia Law, there should be a law that does not allow them to hold any public office. It's worse than communism. It's the cobra in the field of democratic societies.

I’m writing a moslem soap opera called “As The Moslem Turns.”

The subplots include a gay honor killing, a moslem with 9 wives, and a pending cliterectomy.

The entire family is al-Qaeda, but several are elected Democrats by day.

One of the daughters married a Jew who tweets photos of his private parts. I based this subplot on Anthony Weiner.

The entire family votes for Romney in Episode #1, then goes out for Halal dinner after murdering a homosexual and a rabbi.

The patriarch’s dream is Omoslem comes out of the closet (moslem closet, not gay closet) and invites him to ride camels for Ramadan.

CNN reporting an Honor Killing? I reckon even they can make a mistake once in a while.

"Sunday's verdicts followed a three-month trial, in which jurors heard wiretaps of Shafia referring to his daughters as "whores" and ranting about their behavior."

Wire taps??? This means that someone knew something about these insane Neanderthals. AND DID NOT STOP IT!

"Prosecutors said the girls' father, mother and brother all plotted to kill the four women in an "honor" murder."

What kind of insanity drives a woman to kill three of her own daughters?

Islam is the disease, Rx.223 is the cure.

This is the noble culture that the Leftists not only demand we respect, not only demand we emulate, but also want us to implement.

I point and laugh at Islam.

It takes the lowest form of low-life Scum to murder their own children.

Canadians should be ashamed of themselves for punishing these poor minorities because of their faith and lifestyle choice!

I'm chalking this up to poor writing (again).. It probably should have read: "Prosecutors said the girls' father, step-mother and brother ...."

but that's just my take on it...who knows.

I find it interesting that the religion that uses the word “honor” in front of murder has no honor at all.

Sooner or later, it’s going to be war.

Regretfully we appear to have no choice.

That religion is despicable.

Hopefully, we have special tortures for their “imams”.

I don’t think the first wife had any children.

I didn’t see anything about that.

It makes no sense to me at all if that is the case. Why would his first wife be in the car with 3 daughters from another marriage?

Note that the murders weren't so "honorable" that he didn't try to cover them up. Aren't you supposed to be proud of restoring your family honor? Hmmm?
