Murder in the Family: Honor Killing in America [Fox News Special Report]

For those in denial or prone to be an apologist in regards to the the barbarity of adherents of Islam and their treatment of women.

And for those who wish to learn the truth.

Saturday, July 26 at 8 p.m. ET
Sunday, July 27 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET

Hosted by Megyn Kelly

Unimaginable crimes — fathers killing daughters, brothers killing sisters — to restore their family’s “honor.” It’s been all too common in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Middle East. But now a FOX News investigation exposes how this heinous crime against women has arrived in America.

Waqas Parvez Now Charged in the Honor Killing of his Sister Aqsa Parvez

Aqsa’s Brother Charged
26 year old joins father in possible honor killing of [his sister] 16 year old [Aqsa Parvez]


The shocking murder of Mississauga teen Aqsa Parvez took another disturbing twist yesterday when Peel Regional Police arrested her older brother and charged him with first-degree murder.

Waqas Parvez, 26, now joins his father Muhammad Parvez, 57, before the courts on pre-meditated murder charges in the Dec. 10, 2007 strangling death of the 16-year-old high school student who friends say did not want to wear the traditional Muslim Hijab head scarf and was rebellious against the strict Muslim rules laid down inside her family home.

At odds with her situation at home, she had been living at a friend’s house in the days preceding her slaying.

The Crown will now attempt to prove to a jury that it was that resistance to old-world-thinking, and her embracing a Canadian lifestyle, culture and friends, that resulted in the Pakistani-born Grade 11 Applewood Heights Secondary School student being murdered in a deliberate and thought-out manner. […]

[…]Police upgraded the charge against her taxi driver father from second-degree murder to first-degree murder — the same charge her brother now faces.

On June 18, English stated: “I said from the beginning that her brother has culpability in his sister’s murder and my view on that has not changed. He’s living with this and I am sure there are some other people living with this as well.”

Eight days later, detectives took the brother into custody.

Meanwhile, it’s difficult for Canadians to accept that such a thing could happen here, but the reality is honour killings do happen in other parts of the world on a regular basis. In fact, in Germany alone, there have been 48 such killings in recent years.

“Honour murders are a real problem and can involve both religious and cultural factors,” said Stephen Brown, a columnist with Los Angeles-based FrontPage Magazine, who has researched and written extensively on the subject. “People need to understand this mindset before they can understand why this happens.” […]

Schepps Dairy has announced a six-month extension of its reward for the arrest and indictment of Yaser Abdel Said

Reward extended in case of cab driver accused of killing 2 daughters

04:53 PM CDT on Tuesday, June 3, 2008

By RACHEL SLADE / The Dallas Morning News
Schepps Dairy has announced a six-month extension of its reward for the arrest and indictment of Yaser Abdel Said, who is accused of murdering his daughters.

Sarah, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18, two Lewisville High School students, were found dead on Jan. 1, in a cab at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving. One of the sisters had called 911 earlier that evening, but police were unable to locate the caller. Their bodies were later discovered by a taxi driver.

A capital murder warrant remains active for Mr. Said, who has been missing since the murders, police said. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Schepps Dairy offered an award of $10,000 in January.

This is great news. I spoke to someone at Crime Stoppers last month and he informed me that the reward offered by Schepps Dairy may expire eventually. Yet they have extended the time frame.
Schepps must remain hopeful there will be a break in the case. Their generosity is admirable.

Has Patricia Said’s Last Remaining Child Been Ripped From Her Arms?

Welcome MyDeathSpace.com readers. Thanks Beth-Deth!
*Note: “Christina” is not related to either side of the family. She is just a long time commenter and interested third party.
We think commenter “Tony” is “Islam Said”
For more whacked out commentary from “Islam” and a few from his mom Patricia “Tissy” go here.

If anyone is interested I posted a follow up today (Aug 4 2008) here: Has Islam Said Admitted “Yaser Said” Murdered His Sisters Sara and Amina?

Scarlett a.k.a. velvethammer
—————————————-
Patricia Said’s two daughters Amina and Sarah were allegedly murdered by her Muslim husband their father. In what could only be described as a horrid evil act of honorcide. Now Phyllis Chesler reports Patricia’s last remaining child Islam has been taken from her. Is Islam Said being groomed by his paternal male relatives in New York? If so, one can only imagine the levels of indoctrination going on behind closed doors within the inner Said circle. Reportedly Patricia (Tissy) Said has been disowned by Yaser’s (her fugitive husband’s) family and they have turned on her. They all know more than they are admitting. IMHO

Still Dead in Dallas
By Phyllis Chesler
Chesler Chronicles at Pajamas Media | Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Old News: The sisters, Sarah and Amina Said, are still dead; their father-murderer, Yasir Abdul Said, has not yet been found; the mainstream media continues its uncanny silence.

What’s New: The reward for Said’s capture has been doubled and Tissy Said, his wife and the mother of the two murdered girls, has been ejected from the home of her extended Muslim family. Her beloved son, Islam, (from whom she would not willingly part), has been sent away from her. The Said family presumably want him to be “around a man” (his paternal uncle in New York City) and not around his mother. According to Tissy’s great-aunt, the brave, outspoken, Gail Gartrell:

“I feel Tissy is in grave danger from her own son. This is what I think his uncle is working through with Islam in New York. I fear his return. All the nieces and nephews in the Said family are accusing Tissy of this being her fault. They have turned on her. They blame her for allowing her daughters to see American boys. She has become the enemy. When I spoke to Tissy, she seemed more upset about this betrayal than about anything else. She told me she did not care if he (Islam? or Yaser?) killed her or not. Now, her spirit is broken since her Muslim family has walked away from her. Tissy told me that she wants to be buried next to her daughters.”

Tissy is an American citizen who is about 36-37 years old. She was married to Yaser at fifteen.

Gartrell described being recently preyed upon by a local Texas reporter who said she was a private investigator-in an effort to gain access to Tissy. The ruse did not work but it sowed discord among family members. Gartrell and other great-aunts have, reportedly, been threatened online and warned not to write about this case. (One great-aunt was writing a book-she may no longer be doing so).

Gartrell tells me that no one can save Tissy but Tissy herself. She has to “contact the police for help. A detective said the only way to protect her was if she would be willing to leave Islam and go into hiding! ”

Why is the media so disinterested? Their disinterest makes it harder for the police to find Yaser and encourages the next honor murderer to strike. Chances are, he will not be successfully pursued. Chances are, the world will not much care. What about the young boys who tried to save Sarah and Amina and who remain in hiding? The media silence endangers them more each day.

[Update 4: Reward is now $21,125.00!] Sarah and Amina Said’s Family Fight to Keep Their Deaths in the Public Eye

if you have the time browse through the commentary at the related link. Someone who claims to be Islam Said (Sarah and Amina Said’s) brother and Patricia (Tissie ) Said (their mother) have posted comments. There you will find a plethora of comments in defense of Yaser Said. The commentary includes the unfortunate distressful infighting amongst the maternal side of the family fueled by the “local Texas reporter” The “local Texas reporter” contacted me via e-mail in an attempt to prod yours truly to release info to her regarding the where a bouts of a specific visitor. I ignored the request. I believe (though I may be incorrect) that she has been trolling the thread causing trouble between the family members. Known as the Great Aunts of Sarah & Amina Said the victims in the yet to be solved murder case. The Aunts are doing all within their power to keep this story alive in hopes the alleged murderer Yaser Said is brought to justice.

God bless them all. I pray they find it in their hearts to get past the division caused by the ‘outsider’ and move forward.

Related link also contains info on the reward, photo and description of the wanted man Yaser Said.

Update:

Due to an idiotic mindless flaming troll not getting the hint. I closed comments on [Update 4: Reward is now $21,125.00!] Sarah and Amina Said’s Family Fight to Keep Their Deaths in the Public Eye. After which all previously posted comments disappeared including the comment box. I tried to reverse the situation by opening comments and the situation remains the same. Must be a glitch with the particular theme I am using. I would copy/paste them if into a comment if there was a comment box to do so in. So for now unless anything changes my hands are tied.

“HONOR KILLER” YASER SAID: TRACKING A COLD-BLOODED MURDERER @ Atlas Shrugs

I wanted to update you on Atlas’s continuing exclusive coverage of the brutal murder (“honor” killing) of Amina and Sarah Said. Islam, their brother, and the one responsible to luring them back to Texas – only to murdered is MIA. Islam should have a 24 hour tail on him.

I have made a significant contribution to the Crimestoppers fund to find Yaser Said. The larger the pot the bigger the temptation for someone to say something. Give generously (see below)

Yasir Said on the Run Pamela Geller and Bill Warner

Yaser Abdel Said had two passports, a USA passport and an Egyptian passport. Yaser Abdel Said had over $9,000 in cash hidden (from State welfare investigators.. no checking accounts) in his rental house that he shared with his wife Patricia, son Islam and the two murdered girls.

Patricia Said had taken $5,000 when she split on or about 12/25/2007 with the two girls, Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18, when she returned on or about 1/01/2008, she brought back most of the $5,000.

Son Islam, gets a monthly check form the State of Texas, some sort of mental disabilities, supposed to have been home schooled for the last 5 or 6 years. Islam is unrepentant in his role and heatedly defends his father. He appears to be radicalized.

On the day of the murder 1/01/2008, Patricia Said (she drives an older mini-van) took Amina from her boyfriends house to meet Yaser at his cab, near the Said rental house, Sarah was in the front seat of the cab, they (the girls) never went into the Said house.[…]

[…]Crime Stoppers, along with Schepps Dairy
Now has in reward monies
$25,000
For information leading to the arrest And conviction of Yaser Said.

Give to “Crime Stoppers”
Let us increase the amount of the REWARD!

Read it all!

It seems there has been a misunderstanding as to the true amount of the reward. The below comment is from a family member who spoke to Crime Stoppers today May 16 2008.

JOYCE

Relatives work to keep girls’ slayings in the public spotlight

saids.jpg

By MARK AGEE

Star-Telegram staff writer

Gail Gartrell believes that Yaser Said is still in the Fort Worth area more than two months after he was accused of fatally shooting his two daughters.

Which is why as a great-aunt of the girls, Sarah Said, 17, and Amina Said, 18, Gartrell is determined to keep his face in the public eye, hoping that someone will turn him in for $11,000 in rewards.

With an artist friend and other relatives, she put together a half-dozen artist renderings of what Yaser Abdel Said, 50, would look like with different haircuts and beard styles.

“He thinks he silenced them, but I won’t let them be silenced,” Gartrell, 53, of Cleburne, said Monday.

The girls were found dead Jan. 1 inside a cab in an Irving hotel parking lot. The cab had been driven by their father, who hasn’t been seen since. Friends and family said Yaser Said was upset that the girls were dating American boys. A capital murder warrant was issued for his arrest soon after their deaths.

Irving police have said that the trail has gone cold and that they don’t know whether Said is in the area or whether he fled, possibly to his native Egypt.

While the girls’ mother and brother have spoken publicly on the crime on only a few occasions, the extended family on the mother’s side has held events to draw attention to the case.

They’ve printed fliers, T-shirts and stickers in memory of the girls, who were students at Lewisville High School.

“We don’t want to let people forget,” said another of the girls’ great-aunts, Joyce Boucher.

“These girls didn’t even get to start their lives.”

Note: It would be extremely helpful to them if bloggers such as myself could post all of the different renderings. The photo gallery is done in flash. Sigh.

‘Honour killing’ brother blames victims

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.

What does that tell you? The control is inbred in the son.

Too Sexy for my Burka (it is a serious video. do not let the title fool you)

Now for a few comments left on this article by folks who state they either knew or are related to Sara and Amina Said.

maestro – I had the pleasure of educating one of the sisters in my class, along with her classmates. She had told me one time that her father expected her and her sister to marry a Muslim who resided in Egypt. She had the idea that right after graduation, he would take her there immediately to find a husband. Being only a 10th grader at the time, I didn’t really think she was too serious because she always had such a happy demeanor along with a warm smile. Both her and her sister were two very intelligent girls who really could have had a bright future. I hope they nail the bastard.

CAN’T SAY!! – i know how the story went i am one of there family members but yall post stuff up like they wanted you to be sad they wanted yall to be happy!!! i read on a thing that they posted up the day before they died “you live your life good because you never know when you die” another way to say it is they know that they were going to die but they didnt know it was that close i am very sorry to say this but they wanted you yall to be happy and right know i think yall need yo say a pray for there dad to be caught i know i will!!

THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE AND YALL HAVE TO KNOW THAT!!!

Yes this was an HONOR killing, but when the real truth comes out it will be two types of killing, I feel this is an insest cover-up. THAT MOTHER AND BROTHER IS GUILTY, she took them away and then brought them back knowing he promised to KILL AMINA. If the aunt Connie will tell the truth, she receivd a letter from Amina telling about their dad molesting them, she has told many of us about the letter.
Did anyone notice the mother said she would find him, then 6 days later she moved in with the killer’s brother and then told the news paper he was a loving father. good provider, hard worker If molesting your children, beating them, not letting them have an opinion, kicking Amina in the mouth, then in her wicked mind that is loving. The mother fled with him and the children from Bedford after he kicked Amina in the mouth, while wearing braces and her mouth was big,bruised and blue and she didn’t take her to the doctor……..if you will check the welfare records, she has a record herself, she fraudelently received food stamps….please dont donate money to this woman, somebody needs to start a schlorship fund in their names.Yes this was an HONOR killing, but when the real truth comes out it will be two types of killing, I feel this is an insest cover-up.

Man tells Peel police he killed daughter; 16-year-old girl fights for life

hijab-strangling-victim-aqsa-parvez.pngA 16-year-old Mississauga girl is fighting for her life in hospital, after a man called Peel Regional Police this morning saying he had killed his daughter.
“At 7:55 we received a call on 911 from a man indicating that he had killed his daughter,” said Peel Police Constable J.P. Valade.
Police found the victim at an address on Longhorn Trail, in the Hurontario and Eglinton area.
The girl is in critical condition, and Peel’s homicide squad is monitoring the probe.
‘‘A 57-year-old male was taken into custody at the scene,’’ said Const. Valade.
At this hour, Peel police have set up a command unit at the scene, where officers are canvassing neighbours and a forensic unit is at work inside the large two-storey home. Neighbours told Global News that the family is new to the affluent cul-de-sac.
‘‘I didn’t know the family really well. You would see them around the neighbourhood but they would never talk to me,’’ said one neighbour, who said he believed the family was Muslim. Source.

Teen girl in critical condition after alleged dispute over hijab

UPDATE: Aqsa Parvez has reportedly died.

Chris Wattie filed this earlier story:

A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition after being choked by a man believed to be her father, apparently after a dispute with her family over her refusal to wear the hijab, the Islamic headscarf worn by some Muslim women.

Peel Regional Police arrested a 57-year-old man yesterday morning after receiving a 911 call from a suburban home in Mississauga from a man saying he had killed his daughter. When police and paramedics arrived at the house they found a 16-year-old lying on the floor without any vital signs, police said.

Constable J.P. Valade, a spokesman for Peel police, would not release the names of either the victim or the man arrested and would not give any details about what transpired inside the large, two-storey home in a well-to-do subdivision.

“We are not getting into the details of her injuries at this time,” he said. “We aren’t getting into any details about this case. This investigation is really in its infancy: officers are still canvassing the neighbourhood and talking to family members.”

However, early police reports indicated the teenager had been choked and that the attacker was her father.

The girl was rushed to Credit Valley Hospital and later transferred to the Hospital for Sick Children, where she was listed in critical condition last night with life-threatening injuries.

Her condition is so grave that police have not yet charged the man arrested at the scene until they know whether he will be charged with murder or attempted murder. He was scheduled to appear in Brampton court on Tuesday.

Friends of the teenager, a Grade 11 student at nearby Applewood Heights high school, identified her as Aqsa Parvez and said they were shocked by the attack on the outgoing, likeable girl, but said she had been threatened by her strictly religious family before.

“She got threatened by her father and her brother,” said Dominiquia Holmes-Thompson, who had known Aqsa since they both started high school together. “He said that if she leaves, he would kill her.”

Ebonie Mitchell, 16, another friend of the victim, said the conflict with her father over wearing Islamic dress came to a head at the beginning of this school year. “She just wanted to dress like we do,” she said.

“Last year she wore like the Islamic stuff and everything, the hijab, and this year she’s all Western. She just wanted to look like everyone else. And I guess her dad had a problem with that.”

Ebonie said her friend had left home once before, in September, for about two weeks. She returned home, but the fights with her family over what she wore just got worse.

Dominiquia, 16, said her friend had been arguing with her father for more than a year over the restrictions he imposed on her, including demanding that she wear the hijab at all times. “She wanted to go out with her friends, hang out and just be like a normal person,” she said. “But he was always trying to control her … he wouldn’t let her go out or do anything.”

The stricken girl’s friends said the fights with her father got so bad that she had left the family home to live with friends about a week ago. “She was going back, but just to get her stuff,” said friend Krista Garbutt. “She was scared to go home, but she had to get her clothes and stuff.”

Neighbours said as many as 11 people lived in the home, which was sealed off by crime scene tape and surrounded by police cars yesterday, all members of an extended Pakistani family. Const. Valade confirmed that there were other people in the home when the teenager was attacked.

“I didn’t really know any of them,” said one woman, who would not give her name. “There were a lot of them living in that house, always coming and going. They didn’t talk to me, maybe just to say hello once in a while. That’s all.”

The home where the teen was attacked is the listed address of Muhammad Parvez, a Mississauga cab driver. “He was Muslim and very devout, very observant,” said one of his fellow drivers at Mississauga’s Blue and White Taxi, who did not want his name used. “He was always stopping to take breaks and pray: three, four times a day.”

His eldest son, also named Muhammad, also worked as a cab driver and lived in the family home with his wife and at least one child, the driver said. Several people inside the home were questioned by police before being allowed to leave.

Neighbours said the family moved in just over a year ago. Source.
