The murder of Shaima Alawadi is looking increasingly like this murder in New Jersey: one that the Muslim murderer tried to cover up by making it look like an "Islamophobic hate crime," that ever-elusive fiction that Islamic supremacists have to invent in the absence of any examples of the real thing. The only question is whether she was killed by her husband because she was seeking a divorce, or by her daughter because the daughter was afraid her own life was in danger of honor killing after she was caught having sex in a car.

"Was 'One Million Hijabs' victim killed by her OWN family? Daughter and husband linked to 'race-hate' slaying of Iraqi found dead in Californian home," by Thomas Durante for the Daily Mail, April 5 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A California hate crime murder that sparked an international uproar may have been a killing within the family, as police turn their investigation to her husband and teen daughter.
The Iraqi family was troubled by relationship issues before Shaima Alawadi, 32, a mother of five was beaten to death in her California home, according to newly released documents that contain little evidence the killing was a hate crime.
Alawadi, 32, planned to divorce her husband and move to Texas, according to search warrant records obtained by U-T San Diego.
And the victim's 17-year-old daughter was apparently distraught over the prospect of an arranged marriage to her cousin.
In addition, a suspicious text message led police to take a look at the woman's daughter, who reportedly had a strained relationship with Ms Alawadi.
While police interviewed her after the attack, she got a text message reading: 'The detective will find out tell them (can't) talk,' according to the search warrant affidavit.
The newly uncovered documents show that Ms Alawadi was contacted in November after officers caught her daughter, Fatima Alhimidi, 17, having sex with a 21-year-old man in a parked car.
The records state that after Alawadi had picked up the teen following the incident, Fatima jumped out of her mother’s car as she was driving away at speeds of up to 35 mph.
Police have reportedly searched the home of the man that Fatima had the vehicle tryst with, and have removed items from his home in their investigation.
The teenager, who was with her mother in the Lakeside home at the time of the March 21 attack, called 911 after finding Alawadi unconscious.
Ms Alawadi's family, including her husband and daughter, are still in Iraq, where burial proceedings were held.
One million women worldwide will show their support for Shaima Alawadi by posting pictures of themselves wearing hijab headscarves as part of a global campaign....
Looks as if the victimhood pose was premature.
