Yesterday morning, I was the first to post about the Muslim honor killing by Yaser Abdel Said of his two daughters, Sarah and Amina. I correctly called it then. I said it was an honor killing and I said that it was probably because his daughters were dating non-Muslim boys:
A taxicab driver named Yaser Abdel Said murders both of his teenage daughters on Tuesday, probably because they had too much fun (perhaps with the dreaded non-Muslim infidels).
I was right on both counts (that it was an honor killing and that it was over the daughters’ infidel dating repertoire), as a Dallas NBC interview confirms. Ditto for this story, posted today on the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram site:
When Sarah, 17, recently met a boy at her job, she told a friend that her father would kill her if he found out.
But I don’t know why people are shocked. This is no surprise on two counts. First, this isn’t the first Muslim honor killing in America. I’ve been writing about these for years on this site and elsewhere, well before 9/11. I’ve written about the Indiana honor killing of Palestina Isa by her Palestinian father, a devotee of Abu Nidal, who was under investigation by the FBI. I’ve written about the honor killing committed by Bangladeshi Muslim Dr. Azizul Islam in the Detroit area, who suspected his non-Muslim wife was having an affair. He chopped her up and put the pieces in a dumpster. I’ve written about honor killings in Dearbornistan and elsewhere in the Detroit area, as well as elsewhere in America, North America, and throughout the Western World.
And, as I’ve written, honor killings are not just against women, unlike so many fake terrorism “experts” claim. I’ve written about honor killings by Muslims against other Muslim men in Windsor, Canada. Honor killings are killings done against anyone who has brought “dishonor” against a person or family. The issue is not just about dating or marital affairs, as so many Johnny-come-latelies to the terrorism scene mistakenly believe. It can be about a deal gone wrong.
In the Windsor case, for example, a whole family (including a woman) honor-beheaded a fellow Muslim–a male taxicab driver–over a dispute regarding property for a mosque. They felt he brought dishonor on them in getting the better end of the deal.
The boyfriends of the girls in this case, Sarah and Amina Said, are afraid, they told the NBC station. Well, they should be. Honor killings are often against the “undesirable” male in a “dishonorable” relationship.
Oh, and by the way, as one reader notes, the Dallas media is now reporting that the cab company for which Mr. Said reportedly worked claims it fired him a year ago. How was he making a living after that? Just what was he up to, being an Islamist radical from Egypt?
Then, there are the more important implications for immigration enforcement issues. The location where the shootings of the daughters took place–or at least where their father’s taxicab containing their dead bodies was found–was a hotel parking lot, ironically, right across the street from Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Dallas Headquarters (known as the Dallas SAC–or Special Agent in Charge–Office). Both ICE’s Dallas office and the hotel parking lot are visible together on Google Earth.
Los Colinas, this Dallas suburb where the bodies were found and where ICE is located, is near suburbs with a huge Muslim population. There are many Muslims in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex which is now the fourth largest metropolitan area of the country. Dallas suburbs, Irving and Arlington, have large Islamic populations and more than a couple of Mosques. The Muslim population is from all over Muslim-dominated regions of the world and includes large populations hailing from Somalia, Jordan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq. The Holy Land Foundation at HQ in Richardson, another area suburb.
As in New York, where at least one of the 1993 WTC bombers was a cab driver, many of the Dallas-area Muslims are cab drivers. Sources tell me that anyone who can see will verify that over half the cabs waiting in the cues at DFW airport terminals are operated by Arabs, Somalians and Nigerians and other assorted Muslims. Not all of them are up to good. And not all of them are here legally, either. But few of them have to worry about ICE touching them. That wouldn’t be right. They’re not Hispanic–the ICE primary target.
I am not suggesting that the Yaser Abdel Said–the Egyptian Muslim who honor-killed his daughters–was an illegal alien. I do not know his immigration status. But I do know this: We are not putting any restrictions–under George W. Bush–on the number of Muslims and Arabs we allow into this country. If anything, the situation has gotten worse, despite claims to the contrary.
And I know this: ICE agents are not rounding up Muslim illegal aliens, only Hispanic ones. ICE agents tell me that 99% of those they round up for deportation are Latinos. As I’ve repeatedly written and asked, how many Latinos hijacked the planes on 9/11? How many Jesuses and Manuels and Estebans got their orders from Bin Laden, that day? You know the answer. A big fat zero.
How many Muslims are mowing your lawns, cleaning your homes, working at your meat plants, and fast food restaurants? Well, if you read this site, probably no illegal aliens are doing work for you. But Latino illegal aliens are the ones working the farms, etc. I’m upset that they are here illegally and driving wages down for Americans who want jobs.
But we need priorities in immigration enforcement. We cannot round up everyone. There is neither the manpower nor the will, and certainly not the “leadership.” And I’ve heard of almost no Latino honor killings in America. Very few Hispanic illegal aliens raise money for terrorist groups through the Holy Land Foundation and LIFE for Relief and Development. No Mexicans protest when a privately-owned gym in Lincoln Park, Michigan has co-ed workout days and now must build a divider to shield the view of these “sexy” (Muslim) women as they work out in skimpy, un-Islamic clothes.
The whole reason for the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the INS and Customs reorganizaitons into ICE was a response to 9/11. So, in responding to 9/11, do you round up dishwashers named Miguel Hernandez . . . or do you track down money launderers named Mohammed and Hamida, who are here illegally?
Sadly, ICE and DHS have targeted the former and completely ignored the latter. The same goes for Citizenship and Immigration Services, which continue to rubber stamp the immigration applications of honor-murderers like Yaser Abdel Said, so he–like his fellow co-religionists before him and after him–can import his disgusting Muslim cultural “activities” (like murdering two daughters) to our shores.
And the part of ICE that used to be the U.S. Customs Service Office of Investigations did incredible terrorism money-laundering investigations. Operation Greenquest, under the leadership of Marcy Forman-Friedman (who then earned my compliments and admiration, but no longer), successfully thwarted terrorism financing because their targets were Muslims. They investigated Muslims who financed mass-murder, not Latinos who plucked feathers from your future chicken dinner. Which one is a bigger threat–Yaser Abdel Said, who murdered his two daughters, or Maria, a hotel housekeeper? Both are lawbreakers. But the one who is dedicated to Islamist culture and jihad is far more dangerous than the service industry worker.
America is not safer under Bush. It is far less safe. Here is what one ICE agent told me, which echoes what many others have said:
Customs agents hate ICE because we no longer do complex investigations into things like Islamic terrorism funding and money-laundering and, instead, only chase after Hispanic illegals. Immigration agents hate ICE because all the high level management is former Customs, and INS agents say that ICE is even more mucked up now than it was when INS was when was responsible for immigration enforcement.
It’s the truth, and tax payers need to know that DHS and ICE are a total waste of their money. As I have said before, legacy Customs agents knew how to do complex investigations to include money laundering and commercial fraud. Legacy INS agents know how to round up illegals from south of the border. Pure ICE agents don’t know how to do anything, and they are replacing both legacy agents at a rapid pace. Legacy street agents and supervisory agents from both the former-INS and the former-Customs can’t get out the door fast enough. As you have seen, Julie Meyers can get away with anything short of murder at this time.
Radical Islam is the biggest threat to our National Security. I hope you can write more in your blog about the current state of ICE. Neither ICE nor the FBI is getting the job done. We are less safe than we were prior to the creation of ICE in March 2003. ICE is spending billions of dollars to catch a few thousand butchers, cooks, maids and farm laborers and we can’t even do that effectively.
We are not allowed to pick up illegals on our way to work. ICE only wants Headquarters-directed dog and pony shows. WASTE FRAUD and MISMANAGEMENT are the core values at ICE.
Until things change–with our immigration policy regarding who we let in and regarding who we round up–there will be more and more Yaser Abdel Saids and more and more daughters and others murdered on our shores in the name of Islamic honor.
