In "The Said Honor Murders: Indict the Mother" in the American Thinker today, Pamela Geller reveals some startling new developments in the honor murder of Amina and Sarah Said by their father, Yaser Said:
The honor killing of Amina and Sarah Said on January 1, 2008 is emblematic of the government's and media establishment's indifference to the plight of all too many Muslim women and girls in the United States today. Over four years after their father, Yaser Abdel Said, brutally murdered them, not only is Yaser still at large, but a private investigator now says that Texas investigators are ignoring considerable evidence that Patricia "Tissy" Said, Yaser's wife and the girls' mother, was complicit in the killings.
Thanks to political correctness and the lies of the Islamic media machine, law enforcement authorities in the U.S. are abysmally ignorant about Islamic honor killing. One of the many things they overlook is how the other family members usually approve of the killings, and often help commit them. But now Carrie Huskinson, a retired private investigator who has been investigating the murders of Amina and Sarah on her own for four years, has written to the FBI to file a formal complaint against Patricia Said. Huskinson wants Patricia Said charged under Title 18, sec. 241 U.S.C. Conspiracy Against Civil Rights, for her involvement in an actual conspiracy to violate the civil rights of Amina Said that led to the murders of Amina and Sarah.
Tissy's alleged complicity in Yaser's abuse and terrorizing of his daughters has long been known. As I detail in my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, in October 1998, when Amina was eight and Sarah was seven, Tissy reported Yaser to a Hill County, Texas sheriff's deputy. Amina and Sarah, she said, were telling their grandmother that he was sexually abusing them and had done so for several years. Tissy left Yaser, but they soon got back together again, and the abuse continued, with Tissy doing nothing to stop it. "On several occasions," Huskinson adds, "Amina appeared at school with bruises, and at one point had a split lip. Amina informed her friends the wounds were inflicted by her father, and her mother refused to allow her to seek medical attention."
Huskinson has uncovered heartrending details about how Amina Said sought help in vain. On December 11, just three weeks before she was herself murdered, she tried to contact the detective who was investigating the case of Tina Isa, another honor killing victim. Tissy knew this, as she told a documentary filmmaker that Amina was "doing all kinds of research" into Islamic honor killing.
Yet Tissy did nothing to help Amina. In fact, she did just the opposite. "It is my opinion," says Huskinson, that "instead of helping her daughters, Patricia informed Yaser of their intent to run away. The plan to kill Amina was then implemented." Yet Tissy "informed Amina and Sarah she would help them run away" -- and indeed, she seemed to do so, traveling with them right after Christmas 2007 to her aunt's house. While there, Patricia repeated the horrifying truth more than once: "If the girls went back, Yaser would kill them." She said the same thing to police at the time, and assured the girls that she would never take them back to Yaser or go back to him herself.
Yet not only did Patricia Said return to Yaser; she convinced Sarah that she would be safe and should go with her, and then together they worked on convincing Amina to return as well. Amina's aunt recalled: "Amina called me and was freaking out because Patricia had lied to her and taken Sarah back to Yaser." Tissy later lied about this to Fox News, claiming that Amina had spoken with Yaser and agreed to return to the home from Oklahoma, when actually Amina did not know that Tissy was taking Sarah back to talk to Yaser. Huskinson says that Tissy also told Yaser the location of the apartment they had rented in Tulsa to be safe from him, and told one of the girls' boyfriends: "I am not going to throw away a 20 year marriage for the girls. These girls are going to leave and I will be alone." She adds: "Upon the return to Dallas, Amina gave Eddie her bank card and had him remove the funds, which were handed over to Patricia when they returned to Dallas. This left Amina with no money to run."...
