A 20-year-old Peoria woman has died of injuries sustained in what prosecutors are calling an “honor killing.”
Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, of Glendale, is accused of running over his daughter, Noor Almaleki, and another woman in his Jeep Cherokee because he was infuriated with his daughter for becoming “too Westernized.”
Noor Almaleki died Monday of injuries she received during the Oct. 20 attack.
Peoria police said charges against Almaleki, who is in a Maricopa County jail on two counts of aggravated assault, will be upgraded, though a spokesman wasn’t sure what the exact charges would be.
Social experts say honor killings are an accepted practice in Iraqi tribal society, where family members feel they must kill a woman who shames them by not adhering to traditional Muslim or Iraqi values. Read the rest of this article here.
Was this guy one of the “moderate muslims”? Just a question. These creeps are reaching ever deeper into our country with their barbaric Islamist tentacles of evil and death. Enough of bringing these people into this country. I don’t believe one can not argue that these so called “honor killings” are becoming more prevalent in our country.
