I watched this story more than a dozen times on the news over the past couple of days. I didn't see a single program that noted the obvious honor-killing elements of this massacre. Yazdanpanah had lost control of his family. His wife had left him. His daughter was dating a non-Muslim. And he killed them all.
Bodies of 6 victims, suspected gunman ID'd in Texas shooting
December 27, 2011
Azizolah Yazdanpanah, 56, was identified by Tarrant County medical examiners as the man who apparently opened fire on the family gathering in a Grapevine apartment on Sunday, said police Sgt. Robert Eberling. Yazdanpanah was the father of two of the teenage victims and the estranged husband of another, according to police....
Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother's funeral was held there in May that year.
Initial reports attributed the motive behind the killing to Yazdanpanah's financial troubles, home foreclosure and the emotional trauma of having been alienated from his wife and children.
However, Jihad Watch, a site ran by Robert Spencer, well-known author and columnist, has alleged that Yazdanpanah, a Muslim, couldn't digest the fact that his daughter was dating a non-Muslim and chose to kill the family to thwart the perceived dishonor.
The site quoted friends and classmates of Yazdanpanah's teenage daughter Nona. One of them named Lacie Reed was quoted as saying, "She (Nona) would come to school crying and telling us her dad was crazy. He wouldn't let her wear certain things. He was always taking her phone away, checking her call history and checking her text messages."

Why are Muslims so involved in terror attacks?
No other religions bomb regions where there are innocent people.
Can I ask you Muslim proponents - can you give me one instance where any religion kills innocent people - apart from Ireland a long time ago.
What I am saying is this - if you want to go to war, go and kill like-minded people - leave the civilians alone.
And what I am truly saying is this - if you want to keep fighting your stupid and destructive wars - GO AWAY FROM INNOCENTS!
Also, I have to say this - STOP!

You people always bring up a person's religion when they're a muslim but never for anybody else, and when there's no evidence it was linked to religion you accuse a "media coverup".
Yet when somebody mass murders it's never "Christian Ted Bundy" or "Christian Anders Behring Brehvik kills people in Norway" etc it's just a stupid double standard against Islam.
