John Zawahri: Santa Monica Mass-Murderer Was Arab Christian Son of Lebanese Immigrants; 2nd Arab Immigrant Mass Murder in CA in ’13

By Debbie Schlussel

Over the weekend, when the name of the Santa Monica murderer of five was released, I received plenty of e-mails from readers and friends asking me about John Zawahri. He murdered five people, including his brother Chris and his father, Samir “Sam” Zawahri, and injured several others. Yes, they were Arabs. No, they were not Muslim. They were Christians, and his parents, Samir Zawahri and Randa Abdou, were immigrants from Lebanon. What struck me is that this is the second such rampage by the kid of an Arab immigrant family in California, this year. In March, I wrote about Muslim Ali Syed of Orange County, who went on a jihadist rampage, shooting and murdering three innocent people not related to him and wounding several others. Like Zawahri, he also was a 20-something ex-student who was excused as “mentally disturbed.” Um, yeah, “mentally disturbed while Arab,” or as I call it, “the halal twinkie defense.”


Whether they are Christian or Muslim, this is the culture of the Arab Middle East. They are violent and don’t settle things peacefully and civilly. It’s “in the blood.” As I’ve frequently noted on this site, Egyptian Copts (also Christians) are extremely violent and bloody and led Muslims in pogroms against Jews in Egypt. The Copts and the Greek and Syrian Orthodox were helping HAMAS and Hezbollah. That’s their “brethren.”

And when we bring more and more of these Arab immigrants to this country, we cannot be surprised when more and more innocents are murdered by them. They bring their backward culture, backward mores, and backward way of dealing with problems to this country. And since we make no effort whatsoever to force them to civilize and absorb into American society (instead, we bend over backward because we’re “not supposed to judge”), we will have more and more of this.

Undue “conservative” Faux-Hero/Genuine Crook, Congressman Darrell Issa, is a great example of this. His Syrian Orthodox family came here from Lebanon, and he led a life of crime–arson (the two police investigators mysteriously died), multiple car thefts (including from fellow soldiers), going AWOL, fraud, stealing (including the company that made him a multi-millionaire and many patents of others)–to get where he is. To say so isn’t a “smear,” as far too many blind, partisan “conservatives” vomited, when Obama supporters rightly brought it up. It’s the truth. And Issa–a self-proclaimed Christian–embraced Arafat, Hezbollah, and the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s their culture–yes, usually EVEN if they are Christian. And it’s Issa’s culture. Arab culture. Violence, murder, and other crime is their way.

That’s how it goes in Lebanon, and that’s how it goes when they come here. To ignore that or make excuses or dismiss this as bigotry is to be an idiot wearing a hat and mask of sand. More:

The killer was connected to a home that went up in flames after the first shootings, said police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks. SWAT team officers searched the shooter’s mother’s Los Angeles apartment and officers interviewed neighbors about the son who lived with her, said Beverly Meadows who lives in the adjoining unit.

Public records show that Meadows’ neighbor is Randa Abdou, 54, the ex-wife of Samir Zawahri and former co-owner of the house where the first shooting took place. Abdou was out of the country visiting relatives and wasn’t expected home for another week, Meadows said. It wasn’t clear if the son who lived with Abdou was a victim or the suspected gunman.

The elder Zawahri, 55 and of Lebanese descent, brought his family to the neighborhood of small homes and apartment buildings tucked up against Interstate 10 in the mid-1990s, according to property records.

Like I said, the more we bend over backward to accept immigrants from the Arab Middle East, the more America will be subject to their violent ways. Marco Boob-io’s amnesty will only make it worse. Good luck with that, America.

The days of Danny Thomas-esque Arabs coming to America are over. Long over.

I am Arab and Muslim and American and a physician. There are thousands of Arabs-Muslim and Christian that have worked hard and contributed to this great nation-as physicians, lawyers, engineers, contractors, farmers, teachers, pharmacists, police officers,firefighters and serving in our Armed Forces. Sorry to burst your racist bubble, but we aint going no where so you better get used to us.

I laugh when I read the ignorant and racist posts by the tough internet hillbillies. There are some sick people in this world void of any decency or humanity. Some are Arab and Muslim and its embarrassing and shameful for me when I read about actions committed by such people. I am more embarrassed however by Americans who use such actions to justify their inherent racism, that is not what America is about.
There seems to be a paranoia about Muslims and Arabs and propagated by the author of this article and the fans of such racist crap. Yet, there has never been a more anti-semitic piece of religious literature in the history of the world greater than Martin Luthers work “the jews and their lies”. Martin Luther the founder of protestanism, was a rabid anti semite in his later years and his works were used by the Nazis to carry out the plan to exterminate the Jews in Europe during WWII-yet I have yet to see a Protestant or Jewish person condemn Martin Luther or Protestanism-
It is apparent that ignorant people will justify their beliefs based on what is convenient rather than what history has proven to be true.
Yes, it is true that Muslims are committing great violence in the name of religion and that the Arab and Muslim world is in the midst of some very troubling and violent evil turmoil. It disgusts me and all the Arab and Muslims I know and the reasons are many- But to look at history with tainted eyes serves no purpose. Just because the great wars of the last few centuries were fought by and amongst christians,and in many times in the name of christianity, it does not mean that christians or christianity in general is inherently evil. Count the number of dead people caused by christian nations wars and compare it to muslim nations wars and it is apparent that the numbers are not even close.
Rather than spewing hatred that is divisive and wholly un-American, people should remember that our nation is the best of the world and we should think and act in a manner that exemplifies this.

Your insults and lies will not diminish Islam or Arabs, in fact Americans are converting to Islam in great numbers despite the propaganda. You should look within your own pitiful souls and fix what is wrong with you in order to better our America for the next generation. God Bless America and God-Damn you sick bastards who generalize about the Millions of Arabs-Muslims and Christians who love this country as much as if not more than you.

    I’m a Christian, and you lost me at “God-Damn”. That is NOT showing the “respect” you profess to hold so dear and apparently perfectly embody. For shame, sir, especially for a “Dr.”

I am sorry that you are giving this wrong review about Copts (christian egyptian) in Egypt without going to egypt and seeing the torture, killing and rape they go through every single day.. Please, before you write anything misleading in your url…make sure you do your research and have the facts… Maybe even visit egypt and see it firsthand.. Thank you.

The sad aspect of this article is that it is rooted in so much hatred. I am Arab American and come from a Christian family. There are over 4 million Arabs in America. 70% are Christian and 30% are Muslim. Arab Americans are twice as likely to obtain a college degree as a non Arab American. Arab Americans tend to have higher incomes than the national average. So how is it that we bring a culture of violence to the United States? Have their been a few cases where some Arab Americans did terrible things? Of course! But the cases are far fewer than with many other ethnic groups in the United States. I think a lot of Debbie’s issues comes from Arab American opinions of Israel.

I: Yup, ‘cuz those with college degrees would never resort to violence (see Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his Masters Degree). Ditto for those with higher incomes (see multi-millionaire Osama Bin Laden). DS

This is the talk of an ugly stupid uneducated racist bitch. A person could have a college degree in law yet still be stupid and uneducated.

Basim Daoud on March 2, 2014 at 5:42 pm

This is absolutely racist, you can’t consider all arabs violent because some of them committed murder, don’t generalize, violence runs in all mankind.
