While Fox News and the Daily Mail are irresponsibly publishing utterly baseless speculation about the honor murders of Amina and Sarah Said, Pamela Geller has some actual news: an assessment of the case as it stands now from Gail Gartrell, Amina and Sarah’s aunt.

Justice? I think not!
It is nearing the five year anniversary of the honor killing of my great nieces, Amina and Sarah Said. Within this time, much has transpired. Many facts have surfaced which has helped me to better understand what kind of hell these two beautiful and intelligent girls lived through, before being murdered for the sake of cleansing the Said name. They were spied upon by their murderous father and brother, Islam. This spying occurred at home, work, tennis practice, school and penetrated every aspect of their lives, including them sleeping. I have seen videos of the girls being harassed by Yasser filming them and telling Islam to pull the covers from them. Remarks from their murderous dad sounded more like something a lover would say to his love! At one point, Amina tells her father that what he is doing is illegal and yet, he kept on filming. I have heard from a near and dear friend of Amina’s that she was afraid of her uncle too as he called her after her dad found out that she had a boyfriend and told Amina, ” If you do not stop this, I will come to Texas and take care of you myself!” Thus, I learned that Amina and Sarah had many threats to live with and yet, they bravely kept smiles upon their faces as they attempted to succeed in academics, sports and their hopeful futures, as doctors.
Since the murders, I have been told to embrace my niece, ” She is a victim and has been brainwashed! You need to support her.”, by one of the detectives on the girls’ case. I was stunned by his words of scorn towards me. These words came soon after the murders of Amina and Sarah. I wondered how he came to this conclusion so quickly? Did Sarah’s 911 call seal the fate of this investigation? After all, she did name her dad as the one who shot her and her sister! They had the murderer and the bodies! Case closed? I suppose so as it seems to me that it is a cold case now and Yasser is living as a free man. This caused me great pain to feel as though they would never get the justice they deserve. My calling this an honor killing and receiving 100’s of death threats for doing so…was telling the truth in vain? I am beginning to think so! I do not regret speaking the truth the day of the girls funerals. I had too! However, I do believe my words caused great concern for the Irving Police Department. In as much, I have turned a weary eye towards the ones who are suppose to be seeking a double murderer, but seems more concerned about the political correctness surrounding this case. In fact, if I am not mistaken, I do believe that most, or all of the honor murderers in the United States are in jail for their crimes. Why isn’t Yasser?
Let me share what I know as facts about the night the girls were murdered and you decide! Patricia Said, the girls mother was questioned by the Irving Police. While she was being questioned, Islam, the girls brother, was in the lobby of the police department. Islam, was never questioned that night, nor any other night! Why not? After all, he was with Yasser the prior weeks leading up to the murders. He was alone with Yasser the week before the girls were murdered! I would think Islam would be a key person to question, but that’s just common sense! To my knowledge, Islam has not been questioned to this day. Now, as the questioning went on with Patricia, the two boys who loved Amina and Sarah arrived at the police department too. They waited and waited only to be shocked by the news that the girls were murdered earlier that evening. These boys ran with my niece and the two girls. Were they questioned? NO! Again, as to this day, they have not been questioned, to my knowledge. Three very important figures were never questioned and yet, they were at the Irving Police Department the night of this double honor killing….
