Where Are The Protests Against the Killing of Shaima Al Awadi?

Shaima Al Awadi, a devout Muslim mother of five, died after being beaten inside her home with a tire iron and left next to note reading “Go back to your country, you terrorist.”

The police in El Cajon are still looking for Al Awadi’s killer, whose family reported that they had found a similarly menacing note tacked to their door a week before the attack, which they had dismissed as a joke.

Did a search for this story using a few different phrases and didn't find anything, I apologize if it has been posted.
Mods, please close if it has.

So, i think it's obvious why this hasn't been a big story. This is one of the worst hate crimes i think I've ever heard of. Here we have an innocent woman being killed for being a "terrorist" when no iraqi has ever even been accused of a terrorist threat against America.

The killer was motivated by sheer ignorance, it's clear to say. It's also appalling to see that this isn't getting much news coverage, when it is just so much worse than what the MSM is covering.

Really getting tired of the Muslim hate here in America.

but really, what can you expect with the ignorance of the masses?

Ramble on ATS.

The media is perhaps to busy to give some time for truth?

Disgusting....S&F for bringing this up.
But unfortunately many people on here have shown in their posts that they agree with the evil scumbag who has done this.
Iam disgusted at some posts aimed at the few Muslims we have on this board and although I bash Man made Religion on here I don't assume Muslim=Terrorist.
I don't expect this thread to be busy because some people just don't care.#

In a perfect world, this would be the #1 story. Such a shame that this woman and her family likely will not see justice because of race and religion. When will the madness stop?

I certainly hope this is an isolated incident and I do hope Justice comes to those responsible. Her religion doesn't change the fact she's a human being, even if someone does hate the Faith itself. Sheesh....

On motive, well...I sincerely hope ignorance and racism is what it's about and nothing more. There are thousands of families who've also lost loved ones to this war and they're Americans. I've feared for awhile now that those who lost their Dad or Husband, or...just close friends..may do rash things in emotional response.

In that context..Iraqi *IS* terrorist to people who lost a Soldier to an IED or something similar. I just want to see this "Peacemaker" of ours end the wars...all of them..and give the U.S. a few years of peacetime life. It's been too long and there is just too much hate from all this. It's doing nothing but building at this rate.

Because It's a Muslim....

That is literally why.

While It's obviously bad, there are "proper" American's who need the coverage more.

And ya know... if you get a big group of Muslims together.... then that can only be bad... they're all extremists didn't you know?

That's pretty much what people will be thinking.

She's not black so Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and Spike Lee don't give a damn.

Any chance the NAACP would help?

They do like to get involved when there is a chance to play the race card on colored people...

ANYTIME an innocent is slaughtered it's a shame.

I too bash religion, but I would never kill anyone because they were different then me, or my beliefs.

What a monstruous crime!

Whoever did this, is the real "barbaric terrorist", and can't live in a civlized society.

What happened to that poor woman is simply obscene. I am ashamed of my fellow Americans who consider this acceptable behavior, or somehow OK because we invaded a Muslim country and they dared to fight back.

The Muslims I have met in this country have been lovely people, very peaceful and friendly.

Some news is buried because it exposes our hypocrisy and how out-of-control people are becoming here. Other news is blown up because it serves to push an agenda.

"We have met the enemy and he is us."

I hope they find the animal responsible for such a disgusting display of sub-human activity..

What a sad story.

She obviously hated us for our freedoms.

Because the outrage evoked by the mainstream media is first and foremost a tool of political and social engineering.

You will find that the death of one person is irrelevant, and the reason why even more so, unless a celebrity can squeeze political or vainglorious benefits from it.

Sadly, good and innocent people are slaughtered all over the world for reasons that can hardly be said to be human at all... it's the media that decides when to stoke the fires; and choose the talking head that will deliver the call for outrage to us.

Terrible tragedy really, I feel for her family; and the local community that simply chooses to ignore it because of the haze of ill-defined values they have accepted from those they are told to admire.

Not to detract from the utter deslation a story like this brings our inner being,because i am equally moved by the senseless stonings and beheadings of innocents by extremists on the other side of the coin as well.....
I feel that all of this bizarely and insanely unbalanced killing and violence is moving towards some crescendo level where a psychotic break, event, is building towards ripping through the whole worlds masses....
The utter random senseless slaughter, taken to way too brutal heights by the explosive expressions of hatred.
There are ripples of this mob hatred spreading outwards from every example of the violence it has begotten.
For every launched in anger hellfire missile, a human shockwave travels outward from the epi center of the blast.
Bowling over those within the kill zone, and maiming those who have proximity......destroying whatever house or vehicle it hits....
But outward from that, in a cirlular pattern, the radius of the human toll, the misery and the hurt, as well as the hatred created by the acts, shockwaves of emotion, reaction, and conditioning by trauma, move out into the surrounding populace and country.
For every death, every act of hatred, this ripple of shock expanding through the hearts of all who experience, this, even to you or i, even knowing of this, in a most remote circumstance, are effectively moved in a variety of negative ways.....
In nature, the principal of balance is illustrated to the Nth degree......Things flow from plus to minus and back again, but over all, they do seem to balance....and if they dont now, they may well balance over a longer periodicity.....
More often lately,it seems, i wake in a cold sweaty panic, late in the night time,
And i sit there wondering when that balance will ever shift back to love instead of the hate and fear that drives our dream filled sleep and our waking nightmares........................I mourn for this Planet...............

I made a thread about it, here.

That is truly awful. The callous murder of a mother of 4. I hope they catch this monster before he decides to murder some other innocent because he believes they are a 'terrorist'.

Racism and bigotry are alive and kicking in our modern world...

You'd think that as much as Blacks seem to embrace Moslems that the New Black Panthers would be all over this

And this comes right after that "insightful" CNN piece of propaganda stating that there are thousands Iranian agents in the USA. I know this woman was from Iraq, but surley a bigoted person cant tell the difference between the two.

But hey, some of you Americans dont have to be ashamed. One isolated murder doesent make you all bloodthirsty killers just because some idiot fell for the MSM propaganda.

Pardon my lack of empathy, but I don't care about this stuff anymore. It makes me sick and I'm tired of hearing about it. As soon as the news of this woman's death gets widespread enough someone will try to profit and make a mockery of it. Is that what she wants?

Think about it, if a family member of yours died would you want to be telling the whole sick, sad world? That's a sick #ing excuse to try and get recognition. We all know this stuff happens, what good is this going to do for anyone? What kind of justice is this going to bring for anyone? It's not going to bring justice, it will bring hate, greed and stupidity.
