Arizona: Woman in Suspected “Honor Killing” Dies — 20 Year Old Noor Almaleki

Noor-Faleh-Almaleki-300x225Arizona Republic reports: “A 20-year-old Peoria woman has died of injuries sustained in what prosecutors are calling an ‘honor killing.'”
— “Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, of Glendale, is accused of running over his daughter, Noor Almaleki, and another woman in his Jeep Cherokee because he was infuriated with his daughter for becoming ‘too Westernized.'”
— “Noor Almaleki died Monday of injuries she received during the Oct. 20 attack.”
— “Peoria police said charges against Almaleki, who is in a Maricopa County jail on two counts of aggravated assault, will be upgraded, though a spokesman wasn’t sure what the exact charges would be.”
— “Social experts say honor killings are an accepted practice in Iraqi tribal society, where family members feel they must kill a woman who shames them by not adhering to traditional Muslim or Iraqi values.”
— “Speaking before a Maricopa County judge over the weekend, state prosecutor Stephanie Low said Almaleki has admitted purposefully running down his daughter.”
— ” ‘By his own admission, this was an intentional act and the reason was that his daughter had brought shame on him and his family,’ Low said. ‘This was an attempt at an honor killing.’ ”
— “Almaleki did not address the accusations and spoke only to ask the judge about getting a court-appointed attorney.”
— “Low said additional family members are suspected of assisting Almaleki in his escape.”
— ” ‘We can’t be naive and ignore that there’s a cultural aspect to this and there may be people who would support him, including his family, but also others who share his beliefs,’ she said.”
— “Citing Almaleki’s flight, Low asked the judge to take special precautions to prevent him from running again. Bail was set at $5 million.”

  1. When I read this article on Noor Almaleki, I was greatly sadden! A beautiful, young woman, coming into her own, who was deprived of her most precious rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!

    I will never understand those who come to America and refuse to accept the laws by which every American and those who reside here is bound by!

    If the customs or cultural behavior of a nationality who believes, it is their right to demand “honor killings” conflict with the laws of our Country and for those who refuse to abide by these laws, they should not be setting up residents in America!

    Here in America, our most “precious gifts” are our children! They are the reflection of all of our hopes and dreams of a better world and a brighter future for them! To deliberately, deprive them of their rights to life is more than I can bare as a parent and grandparent!

    We recognize the fact as parents that our children may never choose what we wish for them but, we know deep down within us, that it should be their choice. As it was with many of us. When we were young, we spent most of our time avoiding the requests of our parents. Every parent crosses that bridge with their children and in the end, we can only hope for the best for our young!

    These “honor killings” is wrong, immoral and criminal and deliberately, perpretrated against women and it should be OUTLAWED, especially in our Country! The offenders who practice this archaic behavior and anyone who supports this type of behavior, should be DEPORTED back to their country of origin after they serve the time, unless they land up on “death row” in a state that believes in the “death penalty”!

    What type of example is this setting for our young people? That it is alright to kill women who do not conform to the wishes of their father or any male member of their family? Talk about archaic behavior! We do not live in the “middle ages” or “prehistoric times!”

    There is no room here in America for atrocities committed against “humanity”!

  2. AHHH! The words from the (left wing) media resounded into my ears, around my skull and made my eyes cross:

    “Faleh Hassan Almaleki ….. for becoming ‘too Westernized.’”

    Said so matter of factly, the TRUTH that exposes the official lie that third worlders come here to “assimilate.”

    We can not do much about this when it occurs in the M.E, but we can CERTAINLY do something about creeping Sharia here.

    Since this S.O.B. loves his culture so damned much and since he feels so justified in practicing Sharia Law here, I say he should get Sharia punishment for the crime of murder exacted against him and beheaded in the public square.

    If they’d like, I would be happy to wield the sword. The best part would be, little and old as I am, it would probably take me quite a few swipes at his neck.

    Just desserts.
