UPDATE I – “During the vigil, the girls’ brother took the microphone, saying his father did not kill his sisters. ‘They pulled the trigger, not my dad,’ he said.”

How charming …

Another ‘Honor Killing’ of defenseless girls, this time in Texas. Posted by Chuck Norton.

The AP Via Fox News reports:

One of the teen sisters shot and left for dead in a taxicab dialed 911 for help, telling the operator “I’m dying,” according to a call released by Texas police on Wednesday.

Amina Yaser Said, 18, and Sarah Yaser Said, 17, were found dead in a parking lot on New Year’s Day in Irving, Texas.

The first call, made at 7:33 p.m. on Jan. 1 and determined to be made by Sarah Said, was dialed from a cell phone from an unknown location, according to police. Sarah can be heard telling the operator repeatedly “I’m dying.”

The second call came in at 8:30 p.m., reporting a suspicious circumstance at a hotel in the Irving area.

A manhunt continues for the girls’ father, Yaser Abdul Said, 50, wanted in connection with the slayings. A capital murder warrant has been issued for Said.

Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading an arrest and indictment.

Police documents show that Said had threatened to hurt one of the girls for dating a non-Muslim boy.,2933,323265,00.html

Hear the 911 Tapes of the murders – WARNING GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING AND NOT FOR CHILDREN,2933,323265,00.html#

Gail Gattrell, the sisters’ great-aunt, has called the deaths an “honor killing,” in which a woman is murdered by a relative to protect her family’s honor.

According to a police report released Tuesday, a family member told investigators that Yaser Said threatened “bodily harm” against Sarah for going on a date with a non-Muslim.

The police documents, first obtained by Dallas television station KXAS, also show that Patricia Said fled with her daughters in the week before the girls were killed because she was in “great fear for her life.”,2933,321486,00.html

Steps need to be taken by Congress and immigration officials to identify those who are prone to such behavior and keep them out of the country. Reports show that Yaser Abdel Said had a history of violence when it came to his family. The girls had come to school with evidence of being beaten so where was the school? Where were officials to get these children away from this maniac?

The Digital Journal reports, “According to the UN and the International Campaign to Stop Honor Killings, over 5000 women and girls in 52 nations are murdered every year.”

The world should not tolerate this.

Fox News Channel will be airing a special this weekend about ‘honor killings’ in America.
