Any thoughts on this?

Look, ignorant #tard; muslims aren't a race!
And you're wrong about what a hijab is.

Deny ignorance, my ass.

In one of the first news articles I read of this murder, it was reported that the note left with the dying woman was "similar" to others that had been received and reported.
So, with that in mind, it seems the note was not the first and therefore not a red-herring to throw off the suspicion of an "honour" killing.


Kind of ironic that the mouth breather "kill the mooslims" rednecks, who like to make an issue of how Muslim men treat their women, choose to make their point by beating one to death!

Don't most hate crime victims have to tolerate name-calling, grafiti etc and death threats until the deed is 'done'?

It's part of the harassment process leading up to hate killings, usually. Building up the hate for an otherwise stranger, based on their religion, and repeat harassment/stalking, I guess?

Most hate crimes don't go beyond the name calling. In this case it seems odd that a person would go to the property to pin hate messages on the door before deciding to later go round and beat the woman to death. Repeated visits to the property run the risk of being seen. The community has 50,000 citizens of Arab descent so why all of a sudden is one of them targeted for murder?



The community leader is clearly not fully convinced it is a hate crime - even though the "note" should imply it is. Further, the neighbour seems to have doubts that a break in occurred.

Time will tell.

Back in those days, it was seen as a status symbol, with these women too precious to be looked upon by mere commoners, etc.


Covering the head, or hair, is in most cultures a universal sign of unavailability in 'women of age'. Up until reaching womanhood, it was traditional for girls to have their hair tied, in pigtails or ponytail. When a girl, or woman, was to be presented for marriage she would wear her hair down to denote coming of age and being open to offers, this was even the same in the UK and Europe up until the second world war. Once married, a woman would wear her hair pinned up and she would then cover her head, with hat or scarf, when leaving the house or in church.

Conflict emerged, early on in the history of civilisation with differentiating women who were available for marriage, and prostitutes who were available for sex, both of whom used the same means of advertising themselves, hair down and uncovered.

There is much sense in the practice too, as it does, for one reason or another correspond to some primordial mating instinct. Women who cover their heads are far less likely to attract male attention, and in the same breath, men are far less distracted by women whose head are covered.

Who says her death was a hate crime?

IMHO .. all murders are 'hate crimes'. I never understood the need for some people (not you AGWskeptic) to somehow elevate certain murders or crimes over others by adding the label 'hate crime' to it. When someone murders someone else .. isn't hate already involved? When someone rapes .. isn't hate already involved? etc. Ya know?

Hijab in ancient times means curtain or separation, satr was used in the sense of covering or modest dress, but over time the word satr in common usage rather became hijab to mean covering, or modest dress, or to some people in America think it means headscarf.

Because the modern common usage of the word hijab is different from classic meaning, from country to country the meaning will be a little different. In his country it simply means modest dress...

This does not make him a liar, or ignorant. He is speaking upon the meaning of the word in modern common usage. From country to country in Muslim countries dialects are different and there are different usages of varying words in each country. He is speaking on his.

It seems there could be other motives at play, than a hate crime....

- The dead woman was apparently planning to divorce her husband and move to Texas.
- The daughter was home at time of the killing and was upset about a forced marriage to a cousin.
- The note left behind was a photocopy.

Interesting developments to say the least. The husband and daughter are now in Iraq to bury her. I wonder if they are coming back?
