Muslim Immigrant Convicted For Two Honor Killings In Texas

Published

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.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Will Begin Teaching at Texas State University in Spring 2021

The Failed Senate Candidate Will Start Indoctrinating College Students  Next Year

Published

Former Congressman and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke will start teaching Texas politics at Texas State University during the spring 2021 semester, according to an announcement by the Department of Political Science on October 15, 2020. Although his hire has not been finalized, O’Rourke will join the department to teach an online class.

Political Science Chair Ken Grasso said he talked about potential course material with O’Rourke. The former congressman said he has taken a great interest into Texas politics recently.

“He originally approached people in the administration… and expressed an interest in teaching,” Grasso commented. “I was thrilled. He’s got a unique take on things with his experience as a congressman and as [a] senatorial candidate and even a presidential candidate. So we’re very happy to have him.”

In addition, Grasso claims O’Rourke wants to reach out to young adults and is motivated to teach, above all, during a “crucial time for the state and the country.”

Grasso is of the opinion that the addition of O’Rourke would bring a lot of energy to the political science department.

“I don’t know that so much it’s going to increase enrollments; it’ll certainly increase visibility,” Grasso opined. “That’s always a good thing. We tend to sometimes to get lost in the shadow of other institutions.”

If the Wuhan virus pandemic dies down by spring time, Grasso stated that O’Rourke could potentially do in-person classes. The department aims to limit O’Rourke’s class size in order to promote stronger interactions with students.

Grasso cited O’Rourke’s experience in Congress and the El Paso city council as unique factors that will help students understand Texas politics.

“He’s an actual practitioner out there,” Grasso stated. “You don’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins, and none of us have walked in his moccasins.”

For now, O’Rourke has plans of teaching for the spring 2021 semester but Grasso is optimistic that the university can forge a long-lasting relationship with the former congressman. He believes that this could be “the beginning of a long-term relationship.”

The fact that a darling of the Left and ex-politician is set to be quickly integrated into a major university in Texas just shows how consumed by leftism most American universities have become. O’Rourke will do a fantastic job in propagating political correctness, much to the detriment of his students’ learning experience.
