Texas: Houston’s Multiple Honor-Murders Go To Trial In Death Penalty Case
Another savage news story the enemedia ignored, scrubbed and censored.
“I killed that bitch and you’re next. No one insults my honor as a Muslim and gets away with it.”
That was the chilling threat Ali Awad Mahmoud Irsan made to his daughter Nesreen after murdering her best friend, according to Assistant Harris County District attorney Tammy Thomas. Nesreen’s friend Gelareh Bagherzadeh was found murdered on the night of January 16th, 2012, in an alley near the Galleria section of Houston.(more here)
According the Texas prosecutors, Gelareh – an outspoken Iranian-American critic of Iran and Islam, and a convert to Christianity – had urged her friend Nesreen to break free from father Ali’s domination and marry the man Nesreen had fallen in love with, a Christian named Coty Beavers.
Ali’s wife Schmo and his 21-year-old son Nasim have also been charged in the murder of Gelareh.
“It is unfortunate that some authorities did not take the situation more seriously.” They didn’t. How could they? Because all counter terror and law enforcement training materials have been scrubbed of all references to Islam and its teachings, this devout Muslim murderer and his complicit family allowed to remain free.
If law enforcement was instructed in honor murder and honor violence, these murders might be better understood and prevented.
Ten months after the cold blooded honor killing of Gelareh Bagherzadeh, her boyfriend’s twin brother, Coty Beavers (the murderers Christian son-in-law) was riddled with bullets in his home in Houston… January 14, 2013: STATEMENT RECEIVED FROM COTY BEAVERS MEMORIAL:
“We believe both [murder] cases are connected. It is unfortunate that some authorities did not take the situation more seriously and that proper resources were not available, which could have prevented both murders. We believe Coty was directly targeted and Gelareh’s murder was not due to her activism or the result of the Iranian government. Our family has cooperated with authorities since Gelareh’s murder and it’s our personal belief that Cory is not being actively pursued as a suspect in either case. “
Another daughter of Ali Irsan’s, Nadia, showed her devotion to Islam by appearing in a Houston courtroom wearing an orange jumpsuit and traditional hijab. Prosecutors say witnesses heard Nadia Irsan tell her sister’s Christian husband: “I can not wait until my dad puts a bullet between your eyes.”
On November 11, 2012 — ten months after Gelareh Bagherzadeh was gunned down — Coty Beavers was shot to death in his home.
Prosecutors say Nadia Irsan assisted her father by stalking Nesreen and Coty for months, even attaching a GPS tracker to Nesreen’s car.
The national media has been quiet about the multiple murder allegations against this Muslim family, in a week filled with accusations of “hate speech” aimed at Pamela Geller, after two Muslim terrorists tried to gun her down in Garland, Texas.
There are good reasons for the MSM to take notice of this remarkable case. As Harris Country D.A. Devon Anderson said in press confence announcing the indictments, “This is one of a kind. I’ve never seen anyting like this. With the family involvement, the lengths that were gone to to commit these murders, the premeditation, the effort… are unprecedented.“
Anderson has never seen anything like this? He has, he just doesn’t know it. Aqsa Parvez, the Shafia family honor murders (four Shafia girls honor murdered by their family, Amina and Sarah Said (Texas), etc.
NOTE THE MEDIA CALLS THE MURDERER A “CONSERVATIVE” MUSLIM – ANOTHER SEMANTIC SLANDER AGAINST ANYONE ON THE RIGHT. AND ALL THE SALIENT FACTS CONCERNING ISLAMIC MOTIVE HAVE BEEN SCRUBBED.
HOUSTON FATHER ACCUSED IN HONOR KILLINGS BEGINS DEATH PENALTY TRIAL
Chron, June 25, 2018
Opening statements are set to begin Monday in the death penalty trial of a Jordanian immigrant accused in a pair of “honor killings” that shocked Houston.
Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan’s prosecution is the first death penalty trial this year in Harris County, and the first one since District Attorney Kim Ogg took office in January 2017, although special prosecutors have been appointed. Ogg recused her office because one of her top lieutenants had been connected to the case before joining the administration.
The trial, before state District Judge Jan Krocker, is expected to last six to eight weeks.
Opening statements are set to begin Monday in the death penalty trial of a Jordanian immigrant accused in a pair of “honor killings” that shocked Houston. Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan’s prosecution is the first death penalty trial this year in Harris County and the first one since District Attorney Kim Ogg took office in January 2017. He was charged with capital murder because his alleged crime involved multiple victims — his daughter’s best friend, Gelareh Bagherzadeh, an Iranian medical student and activist, and his daughter’s husband, Coty Beavers, 28. Both slayings, authorities said, were driven by the anger of Irsan, a conservative Muslim, over his daughter Nesreen’s decision to marry Beavers, a Christian from Houston.
Bagherzadeh, 30, was gunned down in January 2012 while driving toward her parents’ Galleria townhome. Her friends and supporters initially thought the death was an assassination ordered by the government of Iran. Prosecutors believe he also fatally shot Beavers 11 months later in the couple’s northwest Harris County apartment.
Isran was sentenced in 2015 to four years in federal custody after being convicted of an unrelated case involving the theft of disability benefits. U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ordered Irsan to serve almost four years for his role in defrauding the Social Security Administration for more than a decade and to pay $290,651 in restitution.
In 2015, Irsan, his wife and another daughter were sentenced to federal prison for the Social Security scheme, and prosecutors charged Irsan and his son, Nasim Irsan, 24, with capital murder.
Irsan’s wife, 40-year-old Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, faces murder charges in the case. She is being prosecuted in a separate case for the killing of activist Bagherzadeh.
His daughter and Nasreen’s sister, Nadia Irsan, 33, faces a stalking charge connected to the slayings.
To secure a death sentence, special prosecutors Anna Emmons, Jonathan Stephenson, and Marie Ann Primm will have to prove the killings, almost a year apart, were part of the same criminal scheme.
In Texas, killing two people in furtherance of the same criminal enterprise is a capital crime. Two slayings by the same person with divergent reasons would be two murder charges.
