No Way That This is . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

. . . An attempted honor killing:

PEORIA, Ariz. – Police in a Phoenix suburb are looking for a father suspected of running down his daughter because she was becoming too “Westernized” and was not living according to their traditional Iraqi values.


Police say 48-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki of Glendale allegedly ran his daughter down Tuesday at an Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot in Peoria.

Kind of ironic and symbolic, no? Run over in a Department of Economic Security parking lot because we’re so obsessed with economic security that we have virtually not a care about actual security of life, limb, and our basic freedoms . . . and it’s brought us to this kind of a country, where we’re losing those to Middle Easterners with Third World values and behavior.

The victim, 20-year-old Noor Faleh Almaleki of Surprise, remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

A second woman, 43-year-old Amal Edan Khalaf, also of Surprise, suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police say the women are roommates.

If only any of this were a “Surprise.”  With this set of anti-Western, backward values and lifestyle, it sadly isn’t or shouldn’t be.

Okay, just kidding–of course, it’s an honor killing (or, G-d-willing, only an unsuccessful attempt). And I’m sure it has nothing to do with a certain extremist religion, right?  Yet another of the nearly two billion hijackers who hijack it on a moment-to-moment basis.

Because, hey, there’s no way that a guy with the middle name Hassan is a Shi’ite Muslim, with a clearly Shi’ite Muslim middle name.  Oh, and wait, didn’t we liberate Iraq for them?  Why are so many Shi’ite Muslim extremists continuing to come here if we liberated Iraq for them and things are so great for them there now.  Why must we absorb them (while they refuse to be absorbed into the values of regular American life)?

Hope the girl lives.  And one wonders what she did that was too “Westernized”:  Uncover her hair?  Wear a miniskirt? Get a non-Muslim boyfriend?

Yup, any of those is legit grounds for death.

Live her own life like an American. But her father disapproved of it and sought to murder her. Maybe their children can become good Americans. But their parents are from ready to embrace American values. That’s the lesson of the week from Arizona.

C’mon Debbie. Aren’t you stereotyping an entire religion in violation of the international blasphemy law? See here:


I_AM_ME on October 21, 2009 at 4:46 pm

I just have to wonder how much more of this muzzy shit we are going to have to take before we reach the tipping point!I can hardly wait to see what happens to that Florida girl when she gets sent back to Ohio or Sirha Lanka.

Drakken on October 21, 2009 at 4:49 pm

is there a tipping point in europe? the elite say, “we need the immigrants, you have to accept them, and you are confused to think that they pose an unusual problem. they will assimilate.”

france, england, the netherlands…. who is having children, who is trying to leave?

but many muslims will not assimilate; and as their percentage becomes greater, they will experience greater pressure, from their “loved ones,” to retain their ways.

and our naive countrymen will not stop the muslims from coming.

Jeff on October 21, 2009 at 5:57 pm

Oh, good. More honor for muzzies.

goldenmike4393 on October 21, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Did we ever let in those Iraqi Christians who we were supposed to give asylum to? They deserved to come here. Or did we just let in a bunch of Iraqi barbarian Muslims–who created the mess of the country Iraq is in the first place?

Muslims contribute absolutely NOTHING to our country. So why should they be allowed to live here?

For those Muslims that lurk on this site, can you please name one single contribution that Muslim “Americans” (oxymoron) have made to America?

JM on October 21, 2009 at 6:07 pm

If they don’t want to have Western vaules, why in &*%$ did they move here in the first place. If we’re to westernized for you, go back where you came from…..and good ridence.

linda on October 21, 2009 at 6:17 pm

this guy has hugely bloated cheeks… or maybe he’s squirreled away a bunch of food in his cheeks, like a hamster… yes, cheeks stuffed full of islamic hate and intolerance so he can always have a little snack when hungry.

howard roark on October 21, 2009 at 6:40 pm

Muslims,Christians,Jews all the same in a big pot of crazy. Worshiping made up gods. They are all nuts. This is no suprize.

thought on October 21, 2009 at 6:47 pm

How is this any different than the millions of white father’s out there who forbid and don’t want their daughter’s dating black or hispanic dudes? Is he keep his good old American values?

Nice try to deflect from the Muslim culture of death. There is only one major religion in the “big pot of crazy” and that is Islam.

Christians and Jews created the most powerful, advanced, and humane countries in the world. What has Islam ever created?

JM on October 21, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    There was a time when christians ruled. We call it the dark ages.

    thought on October 21, 2009 at 7:00 pm

      Actually, we called it the Victorian Age in England, the Byzantine Empire, and the Renaissance.

      Occam's Tool on January 24, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Good call “thought”. People need to start moving away from antique, made-up religions and move towards a brighter future. America (and the world) can never achieve it’s full potential with all of this “my god is better than your god” bullcrap. Where are these magical gods now? Why don’t Jesus and Mohammed just magically appear and get this war started good and proper?

your mom on October 21, 2009 at 6:58 pm

    There’ s one, and only one God, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob/Israel…
    and Yo Momma is Either Sarah the Free-woman, or Hagar the slave/bondwoman.

    Yo Momma on October 22, 2009 at 11:31 am

JM- What has Islam ever created??? Are you serious? Do 5 seconds of research before posting something so ignorant. Christians and Jews created just as much death and hate (possibly more) than Islam. People need to grow up and quit believing in all of the imaginary gods.

your mom on October 21, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    What do you base your claims on about Christians and Jews? Or, do you just spout off like someone with Tourette’s Syndrome?

*There was a time when christians ruled. We call it the dark ages.

thought on October 21, 2009 at 7:00 pm*

Have you ever even taken a history class? The Dark Ages were around AD 800 to 1000. Do you know why they were “dark”? Could it be because of a certain “religion of peace” that was intent on taking over all of Western Europe?

It was also because of the pagan Vikings from the north and the barbarians from the east. Despite all of these threats, Christian Europe survived. Christian monks and the Catholic Church managed to keep Christian and Roman culture alive, which led to the flowering of the High Middle Ages culture and then the Renaissance.

Unlike Europe, Muslims seem to be in a permanent “dark age,” which they want exported to all ends of the earth.

JM on October 21, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Sorry, JM, the Dark Ages followed the Fall of Rome when Atilla and his merry Huns were roaming the countryside. Actually, when the first Moslems conquered Spain they brought many Jewish scholars and thinkers with them and contributed some of the most advanced thinking available to Western Europe. That’s what worshipping the devil gets you; dissipation of mind and spirit.
    by 1000, Europe was well into the Middle Ages and enlightenment had begun to dawn again. Even religious thinking was revived and most of the greatest Later Sages of Judaism emerged from that environment.

    MK750 on October 22, 2009 at 8:03 am

    Oops. most important part; Rome fell in the 5th-6th Centuries not the 9th-11th.

    MK750 on October 22, 2009 at 8:06 am

Europe and Canada have already gone down the Islamic rat hole…accepting this kind of behavior here in the States proves we’re diving in after them.

Keep exposing them Debbie!

SouthernOps on October 21, 2009 at 7:38 pm

This situation has nothing to do religion, anyone can believe in any religion they want to. But it’s his value that his daughter didn’t want to live up to, he should have realized if he is going to raise a child in America they will westernized.

gj on October 21, 2009 at 7:38 pm

Blaming this guys actions on Islam is like blaming James W. von Brunn’s Holocaust Museum shooting on Christianity.

KC on October 21, 2009 at 8:35 pm

    The only problem with your analogy is that James von Brunn was not Christian. He loathed Christianity and was a Nationalist Socialist. Faleh Hassan Almaleki was by all accounts a Muslim. In addition, to say that it was Iraqi Traditional values at fault here sees rather strange, since similar behavior with Islamic associations has occurred from Indonesia to Nigeria. Also, Islam has been frequently associated with honor killings, but has mainstream Christianity? We could go over examples from Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt, if you like.

    sorrow01 on October 23, 2009 at 2:10 am

According to the media this isn’t about islam, it says in the article “according to their traditional Iraqi values.”

So you can see how the dhimmi media helps cover up the crime by not blaming islam or the muslim father but “traditional Iraqi values”. Just as “traditional American values” now get you labeled a terrorist by your own government.

The next step of the cover up will be like in the UK media where they call the muslims “asians” and do everything they can to not print their name to give it away.

What kind of kool-aid is being put in the water supply in this upside down and ass backwards world we seem to be living in now. Change we can’t believe in seems more like it.

ender on October 21, 2009 at 9:56 pm


There’s also dhimmi trolls that leave ridiculous comments on stories like this.

ebayer on October 21, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    And I wasn’t speaking about you.

    ebayer on October 21, 2009 at 10:13 pm

I know this guy he’s my friend and theres nothing wrong with him……… his daughter did him so dirty so shut the f up u white peices of trash….at least we keep dignity in ourselves nd we dont go f***ing around like whores you white f***ing trash…just like if any regular daughter was f***ing around with a meth head guy you would go balistic too huh? you people these days just wait for something to discriminate about……….And Noor i know you did wrong but God be with you…Oh and by the way…. I’m a believer in Christ so if you wanna talk about me go ahead cuz you’ll sound so dumb on top of not knowing what the whole stories about..

OG on October 21, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    You are too amusing. Also, I rather doubt that you are a believer in Christ, since they normally refer to themselves as Christians. Also, your sentiments do not reflect anything even remotely Christian, but they do seem to mirror what I have heard Islamists say. Also, if I may ask, why did Faleh Hassan Almaleki run away after his heinous act, if he was even remotely upright? In addition, who is sheltering him now from the police? Are you perhaps?

    sorrow01 on October 23, 2009 at 2:16 am

    OG, no matter how you choose to portray yourself in your comments, you can’t possible be a Christian if you believe that this girl’s choice of dress or boyfriend should justify the Death Penalty.

    I do believe, however, that if she dies, her FATHER should receive the Death Penalty – and since this happened in Arizona, there is a good chance he will.

    I’d also like to comment that I find it interesting that a lot of people from the Middle East come to America to “make their fortunes” so they can retire back in their backward, third world homeland as wealthy men. If America is so bad, and their Muslim homeland is so great, why is it they cannot stay home and make their fortune there?

    DG in GA on October 25, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Sadly you are right Debbie.

CaliforniaScreaming on October 21, 2009 at 11:52 pm

muslim extremists blow things up and hate anyone different from them. christian extremists blow up abortion clinics and hate anyone different from them. ever heard of the spanish inquisition, salem witch trials? extremists do extreme things, hence the name. you can’t lump in the nutjobs with the rest of a world religion. there are slightly over 2 billion christians and 1.6 billion muslims in this world. who is right? neither.

what this man did to his daughter was wrong, not denying that, but all of the hateful ill-informed statements on this board are wrong too.

oh and what have muslims given the western world? how about the arabic numeral system, you use it every day…0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9.

the ignorance of this board astounds and sickens me. every day i become more ashamed to call myself an american with statements like these.

regardless of your religion, strive to get along with your fellow man and the world will be a better place.

InAweOfTheStupidity on October 22, 2009 at 12:31 am

    Sorry, you got that numeral system from Hindus in India. Of course, that is another place that Islam did its rather bloody thing.

Hey, look, Debbie! Kanye West is posting on your blog!

Shy Guy on October 22, 2009 at 1:43 am

The action was wrong. This man probably felt betrayed. He is living in a country that is killing his people everyday. This country went to war with his people.

To see his daughter adopting the way of his enemies probably pushed him over the edge. It doesn’t help when American are so anti-immigrant and racist.

Jon on October 22, 2009 at 2:12 am

Jon. You don’t make sense. But I get your point. If they hate us and our way of life so much why come and live in America at all? People of every other faith seem to identify with America. For some reason, Muslims keep themselves at a distance removed from this country and even secular Muslims still hate America, detest Israel and support its enemies abroad. And this despite the fact America has been one of the welcoming lands to immigrants in the history of the world.

NormanF on October 22, 2009 at 3:27 am

norman does anything on this blog sound “welcoming” to you? thats only the tip of the iceberg of the hateful comments i have heard about immigrants and not just muslims.

and where in the hell do you go off saying even secular muslims hate america and support our enemies? that simply is not true. for instance, i work with two muslim brothers and their family emigrated from afghanistan a few years before 9/11. they love american pop culture and have assimilated quite well into our society whilst maintaining their muslim beliefs. in fact today we were talking about 80’s movie classics such as top gun and mad max! we play soccer sometimes after work(they kick my butt routinely). i have even met some of his family and they are just as kind and welcoming as they themselves are. dare i say they are more hospitable and kind then many “red-blooded americans” i know.

they are good muslims just like anyone in this country would be called a good christian. i am not a religious man and they are completely fine with that. when discussing this with one of them once, he told me that even if i dont believe in religion, “allah still smiles on you my friend”. that does not sound like a hateful person to me. i have heard much worse things come out of a “christian’s” mouth concerning the same topic, for example i have been called a “godless heathen” and that i deserve to go to hell.

religion is not for me personally, but i feel that they are great examples of how a religious person should live their life. and they have both told me that the only people they have hate for are muslim extremists, saying that the extremists are lost souls who’s minds have been clouded by evil men, i.e. bin laden.

stereotyping and prejudice will never allow us as a society to be at peace. leave your prejudices at the door and try actually talking to a muslim, see what you have in common instead of looking for the differences, in the end we are all human.

InAweOfTheStupidity on October 22, 2009 at 4:35 am

Jeez, the Islamic Trolls are even more ignorant than the brain dead Leftist Trolls!

As for the Muslim girl in Florida that became a
Christian and was just ordered to be returned to her parents,
So after her parents murder her will the judges that ordered her back to them be held responsible?
It’s not their life on the line so what do they care.
Safety first above all, If the teen says the parents will kill her the threat should be taken seriously.
Put her in foster care for a year until she turns 18. The judges are pussy-footing around trying not to upset the delicate sensitivities of the Muslims, but they should be placing the life of this girl above being politically correct.
Will they put on her tombstone “Murdered by her own parents, but nobody’s feelings were hurt in the process”

smg45acp on October 22, 2009 at 8:09 am

If this guy doesn’t do about 30 years, we should rewrite our laws. One very good federal law would be for states to not recognize any part of Sharia law.

Jarhead on October 22, 2009 at 10:45 am

Americans do not hate immigrants. We don’t like those that come to live here, but want to keep their culture. The new immigrants left their wonderful countries full of their wonderful culture to bring it to America. If you left a country full of people just like yourselves & you can’t stand to live there, why do you think Americans want you coming over with the “keep your culture” attitude. The failure to assimilate is the norm today, but it now comes with an attitude that Americans should accept & know about your way of life. Your way of life sucked, that’s why you left. It’s the same reason my ancestors left their birthplaces.

B on October 22, 2009 at 11:24 am

did you even read my post? they have assimilated to our culture. they love this country and enjoy living in the U.S. they are secular muslims, the women in his family wear american clothing and do not cover their faces. i have even drank a beer…or ten with them:) they just happen to believe in “allah” instead of “god”…you do remember that this country has freedom of religion in its constitution right? that is the only difference between you and them.

diversity pimp…islamic troll…what the hell do those words even mean? i refuse to stoop to your level. it must be miserable to live with all that hate in your heart. i don’t understand it.

i have presented a logical dialogue with specific examples discounting all of the stereotypical accusations and statements in these responses. you have responded with name calling and more hate.

religion causes hate if you don’t listen to its principles. the world religions cant even unite amongst themselves much less with each other! shiites hate sunnis, protestants hate catholics, everyone thinks mormons are weird, in the end who is right? how do you know? faith? every religion has faith and they all think they are just as right as you. look at the person, not their label. otherwise, we humans will fight our way to extinction.

InAweOfTheStupidity on October 22, 2009 at 1:54 pm

Ivanka Trump converted to Jewdaism for her marriage but I don’t hear any call for an honor killing from Jews or Christians. Only muslims insist what you do in your home is their business and your life is on the line too. We have enough youth violence, America must stop importing muslim immigrants that only adds to it.

FeFe on October 23, 2009 at 8:14 am

sorrow i just saw your post about the numeral system. it is called the hindu-arabic numeral system, and muslims were responsible for introducing it to the western world. Hindus were crucial to the conception of the system but arabs were as well. Without the arabs, who knows how much longer it would have been before encountering it, and most likely, it would have severely altered the course of history. try solving a quantum theory proof with roman numerals!!

although relax everyone, i wont be posting on this board any more, there is just no reasoning with religious fanatics who only get their news from fox news and its affiliates.

learn your history, and try seeking out other news sources. every news channel, paper, blog, all have their own biases. to get the real picture you must actually read from multiple news outlets and the truth will lie somewhere in the middle(how do you think i stumbled across this blog?). if you take the time to learn and know what you are talking about you will be able to make an argument with logic instead of name-calling, hate, and ignorance.

one last thing, everyone who says muslims do not assimilate into our culture…why was the girl ran over by her psychotic father?

InAweOfTheStupidity on October 23, 2009 at 1:59 pm

The first amendment secures freedom of speech. It does not provide provision for the advocacy of felonies. Sharia and its draconian tenets need to ruled treasonous hate speech.I fail to understand a social agenda in America that is clearly devoid of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”.

Heinous crimes that present a clear and present danger to the very fabric of the US Constitution should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Escape by deportation should not be allowed.

James on October 23, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Muslims are not as sick as the priests that rape little boys. sadly christains kills their little kids 2,3,4 years of age their brains are not even fully developed and you call islam uncivilized. we don’t drink and get high and mess our brians the way you do. you get so drunk and then go driving thats a great religion as long as your happy, even though you end up killing an innocent person.oh yeah lets not forget the insurance money, you kill family members to get rich. we like to keep it clean and pure. i know so much people that work in hospital and they tell me disgusting stories about how fathers rapes their daughters or a brother raping his own sister. and they have kids from them. you modified your religion based on what you think is right, you don’t have any limits and rules to anything. everything is ok for you, what is there to look forward to when you go to heaven, nothing cuz you did it all on earth.
thank god i’m a muslim.

duda on October 23, 2009 at 6:21 pm

i don’t understand why some people believe America is all theres its not, you forcefully took it from innocent people whom you also refreed to as noncivilized. stop thinking your superior then the rest.

nana on October 23, 2009 at 6:40 pm

This incident was an indefensible travesty, and the father should, deservedly, be punished to the fulle extent of the law.

That being said, though, I think your shameless hate-mongering on the back of this tragedy is equally indefensible. And downright false.

Do you really want everyone to adopt American values? Because then they wouldn’t run down their own family-members: they’d run down liberate other families.

Ian on October 25, 2009 at 12:11 am

This is the most ridiculous article I’ve ever read, do you not hear the news? “we liberated Iraq for them”, how could you consider Iraq liberated when you freed it from one dictatorial (Saddam Hussein) but opened the borders welcoming hundreds of AlQaida terrorist to kill innocent people. is this not America’s business anymore in it’s war “on terror” this is the irony…and didn’t you hear about today’s bombings??? so until Iraq IS A SAFE place to live then question why people are coming as refugees to the United States

RHA on October 26, 2009 at 1:29 am

I know Noor personally and was so saddened by this. Funny thing is, I came about this in an email that was sent to my father from a friend of his in Iraq! I had lost touch with Noor about 2 years ago after she was sent to Iraq and forced to marry a man. Apparently, she came back not long ago and was living with her current boyfriend (who is also Iraqi) and his family. It’s such a trajedy because Noor is such a sweet and intelligent girl. She always tried to please her family.

Now, the fact that he’d attempt to kill his daughter because he thinks she’s become too “westernized” is complete bullsh!t. They’ve been living in the U.S. for the past 16 years. Had he been so worried that his children were becoming too Westernized, he should have picked up and moved back to Iraq.

So horrible. She and her family will be in my prayers. She and her mother are very good people.
