With all of the outcry over the purported hate crime slaying of the Iraqi woman Shaima Alawadi in El Cajon, CA, I had strong suspicions that the murder was nothing more than domestic violence. I suggested at the time that police would focus on family members, and now, after six months of investigation, her husband, Kassim Alhimidi is in jail for suspicion of murder.
From USAToday here:
The husband of an Iraqi-American woman whose beating death initially appeared to be a hate crime was arrested on suspicion of murder in what police described Friday as an act of domestic violence.
The killing of 32-year-old Shaima Alawadi drew international attention in March when the couple’s 17-year-old daughter told reporters that she found a note by her mother’s bludgeoned body that read: “Go back to your country, you terrorist.”
Kassim Alhimidi, 48, was taken into custody Thursday after being called into the police station. Police said there were no other suspects.
“Criminal investigations build, evidence builds, and you reach a point where you have enough evidence to move forward, and that’s what happened in this case,” he said.
Alhimidi went to Iraq for about two weeks to bury his wife and returned voluntarily, Redman said. Police did not try to prevent him from leaving the country because he was not a suspect at the time.
I have read several online articles and thus far none of them make much mention of the idiotic hijab marches and the ginned up hatred created by the lies about the motive in this murder. The only people it seems to hate Iraqi women is Iraqi men. Domestic violence is Islam’s dirty little secret.
