MUSLIM HONOR KILLER: “Here, listen, my dear daughter, do you know that this is the last day? Tonight, you’re going to die.”

Did you know the first Muslim Honor Killing on American soil happened back in 1989? Of course not. They weren’t calling them ‘honor killings’ back then. Come to think of it, they aren’t calling them honor killings much today, either.

NY TIMES  (H/T Susan K) Tina (her full name was ‘Palestina’) was the last daughter at home and the most American of the family. She had lived in Brazil, Puerto Rico and on the West Bank, but she was happiest in St. Louis. An honor student, she played high school soccer over her father’s objections. Again over his objections, she went to the junior prom, only to be taken away by family members.

ZEIN ISA, Muslim father of Tina

Hoping to hear evidence of terrorist activities, the Federal Bureau of Investigation planted listening devices in the tiny apartment of a Palestinian-American more than two years ago. What the F.B.I. taped were the screams of a teen-age girl being stabbed to death. Sadly, the FBI was not monitoring the tapes when the murder took place.

Now, a jury that heard the tape-recorded voice of the 16-year-old pleading in vain for her life has convicted her parents of murder and recommended that they be put to death.

The jury deliberated more than four hours Saturday before asking for the death penalty against Zein Isa and his wife, Maria. On Friday, the jurors had convicted them in the death of their daughter Tina, the father for stabbing her and the mother for holding her down.

The girl’s screams and moans as she begged her parents not to kill her were captured by devices secretly planted in the apartment by Federal agents who were looking into possible illegal activities by Mr. Isa on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Cultures and Generations Clash.

Mr. Isa was born in Palestine and his wife in Brazil — and the parents’ attempts to control their daughter who, it seems, wanted to be an American teen-ager.

The seven-minute tape of the killing, on which the father is heard shouting in Arabic “Die quickly!” in answer to his daughter’s cries, chilled the jury of seven women and five men and shocked court officials who thought they had seen and heard everything.

“It’s worse than any movie, any film, anything I thought that I would ever hear in my life,” said Bob Craddick, an assistant prosecutor for seven years, who has heard the tape seven or eight times.

Judge Charles A. Shaw of Circuit Court set a Dec. 13 sentencing date for Mr. Isa, 61, a naturalized American citizen, and his wife, 48. The only alternative to the death sentence is life in prison without parole. The defendants are expected to appeal the verdict.

The Isa’s defense said  the tape from Nov. 6, 1989, tells a story not of murder but of a struggle in which Mr. Isa killed the girl in self-defense after she threatened them and demanded money. The parents also maintained that their daughter may have been using drugs or alcohol, and that she had defied them by dating a young man they disapproved of.

On the night of her death…

Tina’s father says: “Here, listen, my dear daughter, do you know that this is the last day. Tonight, you’re going to die?”

Tina responds: “Huh?”

Zein Isa replies: “Do you know that you are going to die tonight?”

The girl’s mother asks her questions about items in her schoolbag. In the midst of her conversation with her mother, Tina begins to shriek in fear.

“Keep still, Tina!” says her father.

“Mother, please help me!”

“Huh? What do you mean?” the mother says.

“Help! Help!”

“What help?” the mother responds.

Tina screams, and Maria says: “Are you going to listen? Are you going to listen?”

Screaming louder, Tina gasps: “Yes! Yes! Yes, I am!” then coughs and adds, “No. Please!” Six Wounds in Chest

The mother says, “Shut up!”

Tina continues to cry, but her voice is unintelligible.

“Die! Die quickly! Die quickly!” the father says.

The girl moans, seems to quiet, then screams one last time.

“Quiet, little one! Die my daughter, die!” the father says.

Tina was stabbed six times in the chest with a boning knife, which pierced her heart, one lung, and liver, investigators said. Mr. Zein admitted on the witness stand that he put his foot on his daughter’s mouth to quiet her.

After the verdicts were read, an agitated family friend who would give her name only as Mrs. Abraham expressed her dismay at what she saw as the jury’s failure to acknowledge the Palestinian culture. “I feel it’s not right. We follow our religion,” said Mrs. Abraham. She said the Isas had to discipline their daughter or lose respect. “They’d be embarrassed in front of everybody in the country like somebody when they go without their clothes outside.”

  1. The stupid parents deserved a slow painful death, Islam is such a stupid religion, those who practice it don’t deserve to live with humans.

  2. excuse me, typical western people that have no knowledge about the religion but still have something to say. islam has been twisted in media they only bring out the bad things the fanatics do, also it is just a minority of people that are like that, these people don’t know the real islam, it is not about harm other people or do bad things!
    as a muslim you are not allowed to kill your daughter! a murder like that is a cultural thing, they kill they’re daughters because of other people who cant mind their own business so they talk about how the girls brings down the family’s honor and then telling the father what he should do about it. AND honor is a important thing in the middle east, north africa and west asia, sometimes it is more important than the actual religion and a human life for them.

    • No sense in reading beyond the first two sentences, eiche,,,
      It is VERY evident that we on this blog are MUCH more knowledgeable about your kuran, hadiths and sunnah than what you have chosen to be~!,,, The kuran is only ONE of your guidelines,,, if you cannot find justification in the kuran, you go to the hadiths, and then to the sunnah,,, no matter how vile you choose to be, you’ll find a way to be it, and justify your actions~!,,, and your taqiyya and kitman provide even more crap for you to spew~!
      SHOVE IT, Airhead~!,,,
      or do like Ms BNI said,,, but then, you already have, haven’t you? You muchits make me sick~!

    • I find it so funny that mfs justify their actions because of their culture or religious belief. WHEN YOU COME TO AMERICA, YOU LIVE BY OUR LAWS, REGARDLESS!!!

    • Well then why don’t you all just STAY in your barbaric vicious countries where it is acceptable to murder women, even when they are the victims if rape? Please stay away from where this behavior is unacceptable and live where you were born. In fact how about you just do away with all your females and let your stinking race die out? What is it with you Muslim male animals, do you just want males in your world? On the other hand what a great idea.
      Your demon-possessed society will disappear in a few years. Just use donkeys for your lusts, you pigs arses. I hope a whole herd of swine defecate on your living faces not your graves.

    • Oh my God…I remember this case..and how horrified I was…now in 2014.. I just saw an episode of Forensic Files focusing on this case…to see a response from this EIChe. Person is really freaky…I keep trying to understand a ” culture” that encourages child murder..not to mention a litany of other hypocritical ” rules” that are strictly enforced on the poor and uneducated..but my 66 years I’ve been in the same room with many a wealthy Arab/Islamic man who is boozing it up and doing all sorts of things they are not allowed to is a culture of lying and hypocrisy from everything I have seen….and this EIChe jerk epitomizes everything that is wrong.

    • So basically what you are saying is that these Muslims can not think for themselves. They must kill their daughter.

    • Honor is an important thing everywhere, the problem is Islam turns EVERY FREEDOM a woman is ENTITLED TO IN THE UNITED STATES into a dishonor. Let these people go back to their fucked up, piss poor hellholes, where it’s okay for a 68 year old man to fuck a 5 year old, but a girl can’t go to school. They don’t deserve the same freedoms we afford, they don’t deserve our money, our protection or our educational system, not if they can’t follow our laws….

      • Jennifer, this is such a weak statement. My deepest wish it could happen; and it won’t happen.

        The Females need to create their own army to protect themselves and their female babies.
        There are Christian fighters now…wonder if they would help?

  3. This disgusting ideology posing as a religion must -dehumanise it’s converts ,as they can just murder their own children without any feeling or compassion ,all in the name of -Honour??the men are a lost cause but the mothers?how can a mother be an accomplice to this insanity? poor young girls ,my heart goes out to them ,I don’t know how they will -ever escape from this obscene ,depravity.

  4. hard to believe that was the first. When I was in high school in the mid-eighties it was well understood that honor killings and violence happened in Dearborn. Don’t remember any killing in Ann Arbor area though.

    • FM, I probably should have said it was the first that was publicized. I would guess most of the honor killings around Dearborn are hushed up.

  5. The friend was great were she said its a shame they didn’t understand the Palestinian culture or religion. And they were Only Disciplining their child .

    This is the problem with Israel and the Palestinian people. These murders want us to understand how they are. They should come to bare Islam here to see how stupid they are

    When you disciplining a child I would say a time out in the corner. Not beating them up or killing them. For their honor sorry they don’t have any. They don’t understand how disusing it is to kill their own baby.

    Well those dumb bastards don’t understand how lucky they are to have had a child. I regret that I never had a child.

    Its not just having them but when your sick and in the hospital for 1 1/2 months it would be nice to have your children to visit.

    But some people weren’t meant to have kids . But even if my kid was rotten to the core which he would be from being spoiled, I still would be proud of him.

    So it bothers me when lucky people kill their babies. Even in nature they don’t kill their own babies. And I feel even if this girl was older she is still their baby.

    As for the wife they reduced her sentence. Now that is a shame. Near where I live a 14 year old was having behavior problem so he was put on Ritalin .

    People don’t think when they want to clam the kid down. So Ritalin is there answer . And now its being called Child Abuse on Prescription.

    But this kid was put on it. Ritalin has a lot of side effects one is you stop thinking what is right or wrong. That is what happened to this kid.

    Thanks to Ritalin this kid killed his father mother and sister. Even those they knew about the side effects the kid was found guilty.

    He was tried as an adult and the judge said he was a danger to Society and gave him a sentence of life on each murder and each to be served one after the other so he would never get out of jail.

    But they reduced this women sentence and if she does maybe 12 years she be out with good behavior. She may even get a pardon from Obama who understands everything about Palestinians.

    But its sad since he took office it seems we all joined the hood . Because violence have gone up all over the country.

    • This is the first I hear about Ritalin stopping people from thinking about right vs. wrong!!! When I took it, yours truly found his depression and his sense of self-worthlessness increased instead!!… [Granted that different people react differently to the same drug, it still seemed worth pointing out that depression is a well-known side-effect of that medication.]

  6. And do you all know that the first attack on Australia by Islamic turds was in 1914. It was at Broken Hill New South Wales. It was to be a happy picnic day for the community. The picnic makers we all on board a train heading for a day of fun. A big deal for kids in those days out in the bush.

    The two Camel drivers took out their rifles and hid til the train came by and shot at the picnic makers. They killed several of our citizens that day as well as children.

    What happened next? The men GRABBED THEIR RIFELS AND KILLED THE BASTARDS. It would never happen today. One must have been a Turk because his name was Gul and is Turkish for Rose.

    We had the signs long ago, but sadly our kids today are not taught much Australian history. Our kids know more about the Alamo and Davy Crocket and Coronel Custer than they do about their own history and the pollies dont want them to know. Our history is not political correct.

    • Therese, don’t feel bad, kids here don’t know we’ve been fighting the Muslims since the early 19th Century either.

  7. In islamic jihad there is nothing but ME AND ALLAH, ME AND ALLAH AND EVERYTHING IS ALLOWED. no shame is permitted.

  8. AMEN!!!! PERFECTLY SAID – NO Muslims should EVER be allowed in the West, period!!!!

    Furthermore, F— ALL their “honour”, “religion” and everything associated with it!!! Arab “culture” is so barbaric that those nations should NEVER be regarded as civilised – in earlier days, such people would be truly be counted and treated as the Untermenschen they really ARE – just as they count us “infidels” as such who can be slaughtered, despoiled into destitution and enslaved at their pleasure so they can spread their “race”, “honour” and everything else as colonisers!!!!

    Boy oh boy, I’d love to see THEIR faces when they’re treated exactly in this way (and taunted to boot as “so you love death more than we love life – swallow it, good-for-nothings!!!! – DEATH TO ISLAM!!!!!”)!!! Ancient Rome did as much to Carthage (and justly so – even Hannibal recognised Rome’s superiority!!) – now it’s ours to do the same to Islâm in exactly the same way. The new war for this (in addition to being called “the Last Crusade”) could be called “The Fourth Punic War”!!…

  9. When was the trial held, in ’91 or so? I sincerely hope they were ultimately put to death, and I also hope that since then Mrs. Abraham has experienced 20 years of that ‘Palestinian Culture’ she is so fond of.

  10. Shocking, disgusting and terribly sad – I just cannot imagine the fear and horror that the young woman suffered in those last minutes. May her soul rest is peace – and may her death not be in vain. I pray that Pam Geller’s Honor Killing Conference in Dearborn in April will honor this innocent young woman. And may her evil, ignorant and totally misguided parents either die or stay behind bars for a very long time. Maybe the father can experience “prison justice” if the inmates learn why he’s being incarcerated!! As for that loon, “Mrs. Abraham,” talk about a real need for some “re-education camps” right here in the good ol’ USA!! Let’s put ’em in those infamous “FEMA camps” and give them some electric shock treatments!!

  11. No words strong enough to describe what a person can feel when reading stories such as these!

    No way these evil pieces of walking garbage are parents, because parents wouldn’t kill a daughter whose only crime was being an American teenager living in America!! So that poor kid had to be disciplined, as in killed?!! Twisted muslimes shits like these are the ones in serious need of discipline, as well as in need to being taught the true meaning of the word honor, because their interpretation of it -like everything else- is sick depravation!

    • Nice to know clothes are more important than human life, life being that of their own child. As tragic as it is the daigter is far better off dead than to have lived with “parents” and i use that word lightly, like the ones she had. The shame is their behaviour and Mrs Abdaham’s comments.

  12. The Mother and anyone else who knew and did nothing should also be hung; gassed; placed in the electric chair or what ever. They are complicit in the crime.

    • I fully agree that anyone who had knowledge and did nothing is complicit and deserves to be put to death, but I think slow torture would be more appropriate. Give them into my care for about a month.

  13. And taxpayers get to support them in prison for $30-$40,000 a year, and keep them supplied with korans and rugs..

  14. I do not know why feminists are still silent about these atrocities.

    Do they think that they will not be supported by others if they voiced their anger against Islam & the crimes committed by its fanatics followers?

    Pam Geller could be their role model. Pro Freedom Active blogger, Head of SION & also runs an organization that protects & helps women/girls who are persecuted.

  15. The father died of diabetes, and the mother’s sentence was commuted to life in prison without parole.

    ” Zein Isa died of diabetes on February 17, 1997. Maria’s death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment without parole. ”
    So, according to “Mrs Abraham”, discipline is murder of the child? What does the child, then, learn to carry forward? Oh, wait,,, there IS no child to learn a lesson to carry forward – Death has a thing about being rather FINAL in its effects ~!
    Palestine HAS no “culture” worthy of being acknowledged on the World Stage~! The regime of islam, itself, can be as horrific as it chooses to be, but that does not deem it of being worthy of acknowledgement~!
    All it does it prove, to one and all, its immaturity and inability to cope with a world that has progressed and matured beyond the limitations of 7th Century barbarity~!

  16. This is what we get in this country for importing these barbarians into this country ! ” We feel that this is not right, we follow our religion ” is the excuse ! DAMM ANY SO-CALLED ” RELIGION ” THAT IS SO BARBARIC, IT IS SATANIC AND OUGHT NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE PRACTICED IN THIS COUNTRY !

  17. and this is what passes for appropriate human behavior , how muck sicker do these people have to become for the power’s that be to understand that this is a” plague ” that needs to be stopped !!!!!!! ( a mushroom cloud over this country !!! )

  18. The FBI obviously knew the male was an islamist,suspected that he may also be a terrorist since most of them are,(hence the monitoring devices, were most likely aware of this young lady and her gravatation to a happy, free life and should have suspected she was in danger.
    Yet they failed to monitor the devices ???
    Now we have another young life destroyed before it had opportunity to even begin and all because of inbred, mentally deranged members of a death female sex-slavery cult !
    As for the comment by a person possibly posing as female; I suspect that “she” is so full of hate for young, dark-eyed beauties that she would say anything to eliminate as many of them as her jealousy compels her to do.
    It just might be that someday soon she will meet a similar fate when her inner ugliness surfaces to the point that her master determines to be rid of an old nagging hag in favor of a lovely, moldable female.
    I wonder if, while she is being disposed of, she will remember the horrible comments she made against this poor child.

  19. Once again I must say, the things they do to their own children is horrible. The scary thing is that our own president has no problem with this. Our own media has no prblem with this. The only problem they have is when someone speaks up or out about the animalistic treatment of children under momo’s religion islam. If a Cristian farts around a child you hear nothing but condemnations from the left against Christians for chlid abuse but let some mohamedeen slice his own daughters throat you are an islamaphobe for talking about it. They (the momos) tell us again and again that they love death more than we love life and you can’t help but believe them after you hear story after story about these people butchering their own children. This poor girl was held down by her own mother while here father killed her. Are these acts of humans? These people are more like hamsters that will eat their own offspring. We are at war with savage animals. The political left here in America and Europe have emraced these people. But that is no suprise since we have seen what they do to children themsleves. We have an indrusty in America that literally rips babies from the womb to kill them. Leftist say they don’t believe in religion but it seems they follow the same god as the muslims. They offer their own children as sacrifces to sate the hunger of some evil entity. Makes you wonder if obama would kill one of his own daughters if she dated a Cristian or Jewish boy. I really wish I could write more coherently, sorry for the jumping around.

    • Juripari, No apologies for your post~! You covered a lot, but covered it well~! And while it is evident your first language is NOT ENGLISH, you still made your points clear and readable, and that is what counts~!

  20. Sounds like the FBI may want to bug Mrs. Abraham’s apt. too.
    The unmitigated arrogance and gall of that “B,” to say we don’t understand her culture. We understand it perfectly.
    Feel sorry for the girl.

  21. “Mr. Isa, 61, a naturalized American citizen,…”

    It never ceases to amaze me what kind of subhuman garbage we allow to become “naturalized.” Savages. I wonder what CAIR’s take is on this.

    • They both received death sentence in 1991. He died in 1997 on death row. Her death sentence was commuted to life in prison without parole.

    • My question was: Are they dead yet?

      Sadly, the wife is still alive as she gained a sentence reduction under the ‘Go Easy on Female Killers Act.’ (ref Karla Homolka); the father, not so sadly, died on death row. That sociopathic piece of sh.., work Mrs ‘Abraham’ shames the name of the actual one.

      I can’t imagine a more horrific script for ‘Criminal Minds.’ These are truly criminally insane ones.

      Hey Isa, How’s the heat down there. Are you Crispy or Extra Crispy yet.
