Where are the Million Hijabs Against Honor Killings?
Shaima Alawadi’s Murder Not a “Hate Crime” — likely Honor Killing


Not. a. hate. crime.

Immediately after the media jumped all over the murder of a Muslim woman as a hate crime, there were calls for One Million Hijabs for Shaima Al Awadi. Where was the media on the honor murders of Noor Alamelki, Jessica Mokdad, Amina Said, Sarah Said, Aasiya Hassan, Aqsa Parvez ……?  Where were the One Million Hijabs Against Honor Killings?

I surmised that the murder of Shaima Alawadi appeared to be Islamic, rooted in Islamic teachings and culture, and not a hate crime. The family called it a hate crime (that relentless fictitious nonexistent meme) and the Muslim Brotherhood operatives have been feeding the lie from their propaganda mills that the media so readily eats up. These are the Muslim groups, i.e. CAIR, that share, espouse, and advance  the very same teachings and motivations that the Jew-killing jihadi, Muhamad Merah had. Close your eyes and CAIR and Merah are interchangeable.

Hamas-linked CAIR, one of the top five Threats to Freedom on AFDI's Threats to Freedom Index, has frequently echoed the same rhetoric about Israel and the Palestinians that Mohamed Merah used as justifications for his murders of Jewish children and a rabbi in Toulouse. Mousa Marzook, a senior member of Hamas, was a founder of the Islamic Association for Palestine, CAIR's parent group. CAIR's cofounder Nihad Awad has declared his support for Hamas, and CAIR frequently echoes Hamas propaganda regarding alleged Israeli atrocities. CAIR and Mohamed Merah share the same ideological perspective on Israel — one which, Merah proved, can easily lead to the murder of innocents.

The brutal killing of a California Muslim woman is not a "hate crime," but rest assured that there will be no media stampede to correct the deliberate lie. For the Islamic supremacists and the media, this poor woman has served her purpose.

For Islamic supremacists and their useful idiots in the media, Shaima Alawadi has served her purpose. Add her to the pile of dead Muslim women and girls whose murders are covered up and swept under the rug.

Police Records Cast Doubt on California "Hate Crime" Answering Muslims

For years, the media have assured us that Americans are suffering from a mental disorder called "Islamophobia." Oddly enough, the only evidence they've ever been able to produce for this charge is that many Americans believe in freedom of speech, freedom of religion, women's rights, etc. (values not shared by Muhammad and his companions).

Recently, however, the media finally found the proof they've been waiting for. A Muslim woman named Shaima Alawadi was brutally murdered in her California home. A note was reportedly found beside her body, calling her a terrorist and telling her to go back to her country. Her family said that she had received a similar note a few weeks earlier. Clearly, Shaima was murdered by racist, Islamophobic bigots who spend their days reading articles at Jihad Watch and Atlas Shrugs (but who somehow manage to ignore Spencer and Geller's repeated calls for peaceful activism).

Even before the facts were in, the media leapt at the chance to expose the bigotry and intolerance so prevalent in America. They assured us that Shaima was killed because she chose to wear the hijab, just as Trayvon Martin was killed for wearing a "hoodie." Women around the world have been posting pictures of themselves wearing the hijab, in a movement called "One Million Hijabs for Shaima." Muslims and non-Muslims have gathered at vigils to remember her.

But facts are beginning to emerge, and things aren't looking good for the media. Shaima was planning to divorce her husband and move to Texas. Her daughter Fatima was distraught over an impending arranged marriage with her cousin. As Fatima was being interviewed by police, she received a text message, which said: "The detective will find out tell them cnt talk."

Of course, it's always possible that further evidence will prove that Shaima was the victim of an anti-Muslim hate crime. In the meantime, the only "evidence" we have that this was perpetrated by "Islamophobes" was the note left by Shaima's body, which turned out to be a photocopy. All other evidence points in an entirely different direction.

EL CAJON — Search warrant records obtained Wednesday in the beating death of an Iraqi-American woman show a family in turmoil and cast doubt on the likelihood that her slaying was a hate crime.

Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five, was apparently planning to divorce her husband and move to Texas when she was killed, a family member told investigators, according to the court documents.

The records obtained at El Cajon Superior Court also reveal Alawadi’s 17-year-old daughter, Fatima Alhimidi, who called 911 to report the attack, was distraught over her pending arranged marriage to a cousin.

A search of Fatima’s cellphone records shows that while she was being interviewed by investigators hours after the attack, someone sent the teen a text message that read, “The detective will find out tell them (can’t) talk,” the affidavit states.

Fatima and her mother were the only ones at their El Cajon home on Skyview Street when the attack occurred about 11 a.m. on March 21.

Alawadi’s husband, Kassim Alhimidi, had reportedly left to take the couple’s other younger children to school, although police state in the March 27 affidavit that his whereabouts had not yet been confirmed. . . .

The sheriff’s crime lab determined a threatening handwritten note found near the victim was a copy, not the original, the records state. . . .

Some of the search warrant records remain sealed by a judge.

During a search of the home and the couple’s vehicles in the hours after the attack, police found court paperwork to file for divorce in Alawadi’s Ford Explorer. The packet was not filled out, but a form requesting a court fee waiver was filled out in handwriting with Alawadi’s name, address and phone number.

Majhed Alhasan, secretary for the Islamic Center of Lakeside and a close friend of the family, said Wednesday he had never heard that Alawadi had been thinking about a divorce and moving.

“This is the first time I’ve heard of it,” Alhasan said. “About a month ago, her mother, non-married sister and two non-married brothers moved to Texas.”

He said a married sister of Alawadi already was living in Houston.

Police also searched computers, cellphones and other devices. Among the evidence they were searching for was an earring matching a bloody one found near Alawadi. Family told investigators that she usually wore four earrings, according to the records.

Detectives were also seeking any other notes, a weapon similar to a tire iron and any forensic evidence.

Investigators also learned of a previous police contact with Fatima.

On Nov. 3, police found Fatima with a 21-year-old man after responding to a report of two people possibly having sex in a car, the documents state. Officers called her mother, who came to the location and picked up the girl. As they were driving away, Fatima said, “I love you, mom,” before jumping out of the vehicle onto Mollison Avenue at 35 mph.

She was taken to a hospital with several injuries, including a possible broken arm. She refused to talk to police at the hospital but reportedly told paramedics and hospital staff that she was being forced to marry her cousin and didn’t want to. (Read more.)

UPDATE: From Spencer: Murder of Shaima al-Alawadi, touted as an "Islamophobic hate crime," now revealed as likely honor killing


Will hate-filled clowns like Reza Aslan and Justin Raimondo, and a thousand Islamic supremacists who wrote me on Twitter about this killing, now apologize for trying to frame me and Pamela Geller for this murder? Let's just say I won't be holding my breath. Their Goebbels-like Big Lie and manifest dishonesty, however, is clear for all the world to see.
