The media will most likely ignore this aspect of the story. They won’t bury the lede, they’ll ignore it altogether, or if forced to report it, they’ll tell us that Muslims killing Christians as dictated by the “holy Quran” has nothing to do with Islam, despite its millions of victims. They will then follow with “fear of reprisals” segment, fictional narratives about “backlashophobia” and a Hamas-CAIR pull-quote from terror group leader CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper himself.
“Prosecutors say Irsan orchestrated both murders with assistance from his wife, son, and another daughter.” Apparently none of them stopped and said to him, “Wait! There is no compulsion in religion!”
Texas investigators have disclosed that they found a hit list in a murder case involving the honor killing of an outspoken Iranian activist in Houston.
U.S. prosecutors last week charged a Jordanian immigrant and devout Muslim, Ali Awad Mahmoud Irsan, with shooting the anti-Tehran activist Gelerah Bagherzadeh out of rage that she persuaded his daughter to go ahead and marry a Texas Christian man.
Prosecutors say Irsan orchestrated both murders with assistance from his wife, son, and another daughter.
They found a hit list with other possible targets of the conspiracy, including witnesses such as homicide investigators, and Beavers’ relatives.
Irsan’s attorney called the charges “ludicrous.”
“He planned and executed the murder of his daughter’s husband and his daughter’s best friend” because he believed they had “violated his honor as a Muslim,” Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said on May 1.
The indictment resolves speculation that the Iranian government was involved in the 2012 murder of Bagherzadeh, who spoke out publicly against Tehran’s repressive tactics after leaving Iran in 2008 and converting to Christianity.
