Possible Islamic “Honor” Killing in Texas?


Two young Egyptian-American teen girls in Texas were discovered shot in their fathers taxi, after emergency services received a 9-11 emergency call from one of the girls. Evidently the father is considered a suspect in what is being investigated as a possible Radical Islamic cultural honor killing. More information at this link.

  1. If this does turn out to be a cultural honor killing I think it should cause Americans to think about how few such incidents we have with immigrants compared with other countries, such as those in Europe. America is really good at assimilating immigrants and they are usually so seduced by our culture and so busy turning into Americans that incidents such as honor killings, etc. happen rarely, compared to Europe.

    We are an immigrant country and are really good at assimilation.

  2. We do assimilate cultures better than most. But these types of events do bring out culture shock for most USAmerican citizens.

  3. update at this link.

  4. To one with a highly experienced eye, it is obvious the murders of the beautiful Said sisters of suburban Dallas were dishonor killings.

  5. I would agree and that is indeed sad, as is any case where individuals that have their life stolen from them and the world.
