A Jordanian immigrant in Texas could possibly be sentenced to the death penalty after he was convicted of committing two honor killings on Thursday.
In 2012, prosecutors say Ali Irsan, 60, killed his daughter’s Christian husband, and her best friend after his daughter Nesreen left Islam and converted to Christianity.
When Irsan’s daughter Nesreen left Islam and fled her family home at 23 years-old, she converted to Christianity and married Coty Beavers, 28, prompting Irsan to to orchestrate the two honor killings.
In Islam, men are permitted to commit honor killings to restore “honor to their family”. An “Honor killing” is the practice by which a female family member murders another family member (primarily female) due to the murderer’s belief that the victim has brought dishonor to the family or disobeyed Islam. Islam permits honor killings in the event that a woman has sex outside of marriage, leaves Islam, becomes a victim of rape, or dresses in revealing clothing.
“Honour and shame, that’s what this is all about,” special prosecutor Anna Emmons told jurors. “You heard him say honour is a big deal to him. And the only way to clean that honour is to kill.”
While Irsan’s trial in Houston, Texas lasted five weeks, jurors only spent 35 minutes deliberating before they convicted Irsan for the murders of Coty Beavers and Gelareh Bagherzadeh.
During his testimony, Irsan said that his daughter brought shame to his family when she ran away to marry Beavers with the help of her friend Bagherzadeh, who encouraged Nesreen to marry a Christian man.
According to Nesreen, her father kept harassing her after she moved in with Beavers, and he vehemently opposed her dating anyone other than a Muslim. As a result of her father’s nonstop harassment, Nesreen testified that she obtained a protective order from the court to prevent her family from harassing her.
Despite being issued a court order, Irsan violated the protective order and kept calling his daughter, and even drove near Beavers’s home on several occasions.
During the trial, there were over 100 witnesses, one of whom was Shmou Alrawabdeh, Irsan’s wife. She described her husband as a devout Muslim who believed he had to kill Beavers to restore his family’s honor. According to Alrawabdeh, Irsan snuck into Beavers’ apartment and shot him to death after Irsan tracked him down with his son Nasim.
In court on Thursday, Irsan carried a sign with the Islamic mantra “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is Allah’s messenger,” a Muslim statement that is found on the flag of ISIS.
Alrawabdeh was also charged in the case, but she pleased guilty to a lesser charge of kidnapping in return for testifying against her husband.
Irsan’s son Nasim, 24, is currently awaiting trial for his role in the honor killings.
As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
