AZ Prosecutors Won't Seek Death Penalty In Honor Killing, Citing Islamophobia

Welcome to BizarroWorld:

After sparring with the suspect's defense attorney over its death penalty review process, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office has said it will not seek death for Faleh Almaleki, 49.{...}

The decision not to seek the death penalty comes after Almaleki's attorney, Billy Little, a public defender, asked a judge to take special precautions to ensure the County Attorney's Office wouldn't wrongly seek the death penalty because Almaleki is a Muslim.

Little requested that the office make public the process it uses to determine whether to seek capital punishment.

"An open process provides some level of assurance that there is no appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs," Little wrote, referring to County Attorney Andrew Thomas' Christian faith.

Prosecutors said Almaleki has admitted killing his daughter because she disgraced the family by not following traditional Iraqi or Muslim values.

And yes, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has confirmed that al-Maleki is still being charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault, and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident.

And there's no controversy over the fact that al-Maleki deliberately ran over his daughter Noor. Her 'crime' was apparently to flee an arranged marriage back in Iraq, return to America and get on with her life.

This is exactly how the poison of sharia creeps into a free society. The next step, of course, is to say that non-Muslim kaffir judges, lawyers and jurors by default are incapable of judging Muslims just like the Qu'ran says, so we need a sharia court system that is mandatory for Muslims to use in 'religious' cases like this one and has equal status with our own courts.

Think I'm exaggerating? It's already a fact of life in Britain, a country where sharia law has equal status with British common law, British police run from Muslim mobs and there are no go areas for non-Muslims in some of Britain's cities where the police only go in armed bands.

We had better take a very clear look at seemingly trivial matters like this and raise hell unless we want to go down the same road.

please helps me write more gooder!

And the outrageous thing is that at least three, and possibly four, of the aggravating factors that justify the death penalty under Arizona law are present. This decision is ONLY about religion -- meaning that Muslims can get away with murder in Arizona. Where are the liberals screaming about Equal Protection of the Law when we really need them?

Hey Bro,
The reality is that most of the Left is in a very weird position when it comes to radical Islam.

On the one hand, Islamists hate America, Israel, the Constitution and Christianity, which the left heartily approves of and by and large agrees that makes them allies.

On the other, many of them are physically scared of Islamist violence and thus feel it's better to take the PC road and shut up.

Just like with non-violent Muslims, the time is soon coming when they're not going to be able to continue to sit on the fence anymore.
