FBI Removes 'Honor Killing' From Murder Suspect's 'Wanted' Poster; The FBI removed all mention of the controversial term “honor killing” from the wanted poster of a double-murder suspect after FOXNews.com ran a story announcing the use of the term. The girls’ great aunt, Gail Gartrell, has always called the case an “honor killing.” And for a few days — until last Friday — the FBI publicly agreed. FBI Censors Wanted Poster.I don't totally agree with the FBI dropping the Honor Killing tag and a lot of the bloggers are screaming bloody murder, but if such a tag allies Yaser Abdel Said with more like minded Muslim individuals, then so be it. I don't want to see more "like minded Muslim individuals" lining up to help Yaser Abdel Said, his brothers are doing enough already. Said may have fled to UPSTATE New York . Yaser Abdel Said the suspect of his own two daughters murder is very possibly hiding in the Shrub Oak area of Westchester County NY, his son Islam Said has made numerous trips to this location after the murder of his two sisters.
Honor Killing (of females) is very prevalent in countries like Egypt where Yaser Abdel Said is from, also in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and numerous other Muslim countries. "Honour" killings of women can be defined as acts of murder in which "a woman is killed for her actual or perceived immoral behavior." Such "immoral behavior" may take the form of marital infidelity, refusing to submit to an arranged marriage, demanding a divorce, flirting with or receiving phone calls from men, failing to serve a meal on time, or "allowing herself" to be raped. In the Turkish province of Sanliurfa, one young woman's "throat was slit in the town square because a love ballad was dedicated to her over the radio."
Muslim men who grow up with such bizarre and violent preconceived notions of "how to handle your woman" believe that such murders for the sake of the Family Honor, are not just tolerated but justified and a must do if so offended. In a "bizarre duality," women are viewed "on the one hand as fragile creatures who need protection and on the other as evil Jezebels from whom society needs protection.
The typical "honour" killer is usually the father, husband, or brother of the victim. Frequently teenage brothers are selected by their family or community to be the executioners (in Muslim countries), because their sentences will generally be lighter than those handed down to adults.
NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T, YASER ABDEL SAID IS NO LONGER A "HONOR KILLER" SO SAY THE FBI. FBI drops designation of Said Girls murder as "honor killing". Reportedly, the girls were murdered due to an "Honor Killing." On October 4th 2008, I was one of the first to post an article on the FBI listing Yaser Abdel Said as a Honor Killer in the murder of his two daughters, see prior post from information on the Yaser Said's FBI Most Wanted Poster as of Saturday, October 04, 2008, MURDER SUSPECT YASER ABDEL SAID MAKES FBI MOST WANTED LIST FOR "MUSLIM HONOR KILLING" OF HIS DAUGHTERS.
