If one person kills another person in a state where the death penalty is perfectly legal, shouldn’t they receive the death penalty? Of course, but some Arizona prosecutors have decided otherwise. Faleh Almaleki, accused of killing his 20 year old daughter because she had become “too westernized” will not, I repeat, will not face the death penalty. The defense feared that the prosecution would, “wrongly seek the death penalty because Almaleki is a Muslim.” In order to prevent this, it was requested that the prosecution show their process and reasoning when deciding the potential punishment. The prosecutor’s office explained that his religion had nothing to do with their decision not to seek the death penalty, but I can’t help but think otherwise. Feel free to read it yourself at The Arizona Republic, I’ll wait…
Now that you’re back, let’s just say for argument sake that Almaleki was a Christian. Would he be given special treatment because of his faith? Allow me to answer that with a big fat NO. Almaleki ran his daughter over with his car killing her, and injuring another girl in the process. Then, he fled the scene. He pleaded not guilty to the charges of first degree murder, aggravated assault, and two counts of fleeing the scene. Wait, it gets crazier. Though he pleaded not guilty prosecutors say, “Almaleki has admitted killing his daughter because she disgraced the family by not following traditional Iraqi or Muslim values.” How does Almaleki’s attorney sleep at night?
Currently Arizona law allows the prosecution to seek capital punishment, “if the State has established beyond a reasonable doubt at least one of the ten statutory aggravating circumstances set forth in A.R.S. § 13-703(F).” I’m no lawyer, but I read the ten statutory aggravating circumstances and they seam relevant in this case. This man admitted to murdering his daughter in an especially heinous manner and knowingly endangered the life of another person.

A jaw-dropping expose on the six-month undercover operation that revealed the true terror-supporting nature of CAIR: "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America." It's also available in electronic form at reduced price through Scribd.
This is reminiscent of the Fort Hood shooting. No one wanted to call Hassan a terrorist because they didn’t want to seem prejudice. A fact, is a fact, is a fact. The Ft. Hood murderer was in fact a Muslim terrorist. He had spoken out against the United States many times, but because everyone is afraid of the PC police, he was allowed to terrorize our country. Another example of a politically correct murder comes from Canada. Aqsa Parvez was strangled to death by her father for refusing to wear the hijab. Sheikh Alaa El-Sayyed from the Islamic Society of North America in Mississauga, Ontario stated this strangulation was a “domestic dispute” and denied its relationship to Islamic culture. Can you say denial? We are blinded by PC and have failed to see the facts for what they are. Fact, Almaleki murdered his daughter because she had become “too westernized”. Fact, he admitted to the murder. This is what we call “shooting fish in a barrel”. Convicting Faleh and sentencing him to death should have been a no brainer regardless of his religion.
What I don’t understand is that Almaleki chose to live in the U.S. where the freedom to live your own life is expected and encouraged, yet he was surprised when his daughter practiced that freedom. It is evident by Almaleki’s actions that he hates the west, so why live here? His daughter was 20 years old, a grown woman capable of making her own decisions. Why kill her when he’s responsible for opening her eyes to the western world?

This isn’t the first “honor killing” the U.S. has witnessed either. In January 2009 a 911 call came from a Texas teen that was dying from gun shot wounds. According to the girl’s father she and her sister had become “too American” so he shot them to death. Two American teens are dead because of their father’s extremist beliefs. Then he ran away because he’s not man enough to face the consequences.
Unfortunately Yaser Said, the father of the Texas teens has not been captured. If parents don’t want their kids to grow up with American influence, step one would be, DON’T LIVE IN AMERICA! Muslim spokesmen claim, “Honor killing has nothing to do with Islam, but is merely a feature of Islamic culture in some areas.” That doesn’t even make sense. It has nothing to do with Islam, but it is a feature of Islamic culture. What’s the difference?
I understand not every Muslim will kill a family member because they disgrace the family. I’d be stupid to generalize, so religion aside, these fathers killed their daughters. They should be punished appropriately. A life sentence is unacceptable. These fathers should not be allowed to live their lives when they denied their daughters that same right.
Regardless of your religion, if you purposely run someone over with your car with the intent to end their life, you should face the death penalty. Some will argue, “With a life sentence, he’ll have to think about what he’s done and live with that guilt. Isn’t that punishment enough?” Here’s a dose of honesty, psycho extremists don’t feel guilt. “Well isn’t capital punishment murder in itself?” To that I say, capital punishment isn’t murder; it’s a consequence.
