People have been sending me this story all day, and I thank you all for doing so, but I haven't put it up until now because I do not, contrary to the allegations of some, post here every crime committed by a Muslim, or attribute crimes committed by Muslims to the jihad ideology without evidence that there is a connection. A murder is a terrible thing, but all kinds of people commit murders, and they do so for all sorts of reasons.
However, this story from WFAA.com (thanks to Stacy McCain at the Washington Times) contains a detail that suggests it was an honor killing: "Police say they are looking into the possibility that the father was upset with his daughters dating activities."
Now, of course, that may turn out not to be the case. But it is good to see that the possibility is being investigated, for in a world where some Muslim parents consider honor killings fully justified, and the Jordanian Parliament rejects on Islamic grounds a law stiffening penalties for honor killings, it cannot be lightly dismissed. And since no one in officialdom seems up to challenging the jihad ideology among Muslims in the United States, we can unfortunately be sure that if this one isn't an honor killing, there will be one -- eventually.
"Police close in on man suspected of murdering his daughters," by Justin Farmer of WFAA-TV and Jason Trahan of The Dallas Morning News at the WFAA site:
Police have circled an area in Lewisville where they believe a man suspected of murdering his two teenage daughters to be hiding.
Tactical officers wearing body armor and brandishing shields sealed off the entire 1000 block of Lakeland Drive and moved in on a one-story frame house.
They believe the girls' father, Yaser Abdel Said, is in one of the houses on the block.
Police are also looking at the motives which may have led Said to possibly murder his two teenage daughters, one of whom called 911 from a cell phone near the spot where the girls were later found.
