In an excuse too wild to be believed, Jamal Mansour shoots his daughter in the head three times while she slept and then claims it was an ACCIDENT?? Yet that’s just was 64-year-old Jamal Mansour has tried to do. Mansour is a Muslim Jordanian immigrant to the U.S. and current resident of Rocky River, Ohio. He has been charged with the murder of his own daughter on September 27, 2016, and is currently on trial.
In court just last week, Mansour pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder charges, and his attorney reaffirmed the same reason for the shooting: A mere accident. All despite new evidence entered into court showing Mansour was caught on video loading his revolver at a gas station the day before the shooting.
It’s just one more layer to a bizarre defense in this case. The prosecution presented evidence that not only did Mansour shoot his 27-year-old daughter, Tahani, three times in the head at close range, once from just one foot away, while she lay helpless in her bed at 1:15 a.m., but he should have known his gun was loaded. They are not buying the so-called “accident” defense, claiming the video of Mansour loading his gun just the day before proves intent, premeditation, and a “calculated plan.”
Some have suggested that this murder was an honor killing as the killing has been described by Prosecutor Michael O’Shea as an assassination carried out “execution style.” Defendant’s attorney, Angelo Lenardo, made the predictable arguments claiming that the mere suggestion that this murder was an honor killing was “racist and offensive.”
Except Muslim is not a race and according to experts on Islamic law, Mansour’s execution-style killing of his adult daughter bears all the hallmarks of an Islamic honor killing under Shariah law.
It seems Tahani had recently traveled alone on a business trip to Las Vegas against her father’s wishes. There was an argument about that trip.
“Mr. Mansour might have assimilated to Western culture sufficiently to shave his beard and wear jeans but not to accept his daughter behaving like Western girls,” said Daniel Akbari, a former top Shariah lawyer in Iran and author of “Honor Killing: A Professional’s Guide to Sexual Relations and Ghayra Violence from the Islamic Sources.”
From all accounts, Tahani Mansour was an educated and successful woman. She received a doctor of pharmacy degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University in 2013. She was working as a clinical pharmacist for University Hospitals and also teaching at the University of Findlay and the medical school. Yet she still lived at home under her father’s protection. This is common in Muslim families and Islamic culture for even a grown adult woman. She was the youngest of six children.
According to WND –
Ironically, just one day after the alleged murder of Tahani Mansour by her father, a Senate hearing was held on refugee resettlement in which Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., warned that with the importation of Muslim migrants comes the importation of Muslim cultural norms that most Americans would find aberrant and abhorrent. Among those he named were honor violence and female genital mutilation.
Sessions said there are an estimated 23 to 27 victims of honor killings each year in America, citing published reports.
“That’s in America, not in Syria. And 91 percent are murdered for being too ‘westernized.’ That doesn’t sound like assimilation to me,” Sessions said at the hearing. “Most are daughters, subjected to physical and emotional abuse all related to fundamentalist Islam.”
More than 513,000 mostly Muslim women in America are also at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon. That’s a three-fold jump since 1990.
Tahani’s brother called 9-1-1 for help at 1:15 a.m. He told the operator his father just shot his sister in her room at the family’s home on Vine Court.
This is how a portion of the 9-1-1 call went:
Operator: “Go ahead sir.”
Caller: “Yes, my sister has been shot. Please send an ambulance, please.”
Operator: “OK, where has she been shot at?”
Caller: “In her room.”
Operator: “OK. Did she shoot herself? Did you see who shot her?”
Caller: “No, my father shot her.”
How many times does this have to happen before something is done? How many women have to die at the hands of these barbarians? An accident? No, I think not. Hopefully, a jury will reach the same conclusion in the days to come.
I VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP AND TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
