Honor Killing in Michigan: Rahim Alfetlawi Murders Step-Daughter Jessica Mokdad for Not Following Islam

At least there's a good chance of justice in the city of Warren. In Dearborn, police would probably cover up the honor killing in order to preserve the city's reputation.

20-year-old Woman Dead; Stepfather Charged with Murder: MyFoxDETROIT.com


WARREN, Mich. — Authorities say a Minnesota man killed his 20-year-old stepdaughter in Michigan because she left home and wasn't following Islam.

Rahim Alfetlawi, 45, was being held today in the Macomb County Jail without bond after being charged with first-degree murder in the death Saturday of Jessica Mokdad at her grandmother's home in the Detroit suburb of Warren. He was arraigned Monday and awaits a May 12 preliminary examination.

Warren Police Detective Lt. Michael Torey says the Coon Rapids man went to police in neighboring Center Line to report the shooting. Torey says Alfetlawi told police the gun accidentally discharged when he pulled it out but police believe he intentionally shot her in the head.

Alfetlawi requested a court-appointed lawyer. A number listed for Alfetlawi in Minnesota wasn't in service. (Source)

That girl extremely beautiful!!!!!!!

Fisher said...

These news reports really sicken me. I wish more could be done to prevent these kinds of incidents from becoming more rampant here in the West.

Mark Stracka said...

How do people get that twisted? Is this the behavior of a peaceful religion?

Tizita said...

Jabari: I was just thinking that. She was so beautiful. But what i wanted to know is.......

Is this a white family who converted to islam b/c the mother married an muslim. b/c the mother doesnt look Arab to me nor the daughter, only the step father.

Also these muslim fathers need to understand that in America when a person turns 18 they are free to do whatever they want. U dont force ur 20 yr. daughter to wear the hijab. She can make that decision for herself she's an adult!!! U murdering sicko!

Nicky said...

Another reason to thank Jesus for His Grace and more reason for us to spread the Gospel!

Monica said...

What a tragedy! Another young life stamped out by our day's premier ideology of hate. May she find peace in heaven with the Father who actually LOVES her, unlike that sicko step-"father."

Mr Sanity said...

@Mark stracka What in god's name gave you the idea that Islam is a peaceful religion?
Do even the slightest bit of research into it and you see this behaviour is well within the boundaries of acceptability

surj said...

Fisher " ..these kinds of incidents from becoming more rampant here in the West" True,It is not going to stop,matter of fact it will get worst as young muslim female population increases.Majority of muslims will not tolerate their daughters to be liberal or get out of line ,ie not follow Islam.
Mark. " Is this the behaviour of a peaceful religion"? google thereligionofpeace.com

The girl, Rahim Alfetlawi, is innocent.
Her murderer, her assassin, has dishonored himself!

Jabari said...

@ Tizita: She may have been a white girl who was forced to convert Islam.

I agree with you, Tizita, on not forcing girls to wear the headscarf. Islam does not allow anyone the freedom to leave the religion, wear what they want to wear or anything like that. I can't wait till Jesus Christ comes back. Then we can all forget the opressive religion of Islam and enjoy the presence of the Triune God forever.

goethechosemercy said...

God created her.
God gave her life.
And a foolish, stupid human being took them both away from the world, wisdom and Father Time.
What matters most is those who are suffering as a result.
How likely it is that the self-righteous assassin is gloating over the blood.

gwen said...

Point is..he is a Muslim in a non-Muslim country....why do they feel they don't have to acclimate to this country when they move here? This is becoming a big problem in many European countries as well..You don't move to a foreign country without accepting the adaptation

Burn this freak at the stake.

"the gun accidentally discharged when he pulled it out"

Wow, I'm sure police have never heard that one before. (/sarcasm) My God give the poor woman's soul rest.

P.S. David, you keep saying that the Dearborn police cover up honor killings, but where did you hear that?

From the Dearborn police officer who told us.

@Tizita said...
"in America when a person turns 18 they are free to do whatever they want."
That is the main problem, islamic law does not recognise the emancipation of females. This means that females are never free to do whatever they want regardless of age.
Since, here in the west, we women have had equality & emancipation for less than 100 years, it is too easy for society to accept a reversion to the systems prevailing in the west for many thousands of years.
If we wish to keep our hard won freedoms - we must be willing to make the effort.
VOTE ONLY for politicians willing to ban Shari'ah.
WRITE TO your governors to complain if judges give milder sentences to muslims because of their 'cultural difficulties'.
INSIST that all immigrants to the USA understand and honour the constitution and RENOUNCE Shari'ah.

APB said...

Hi David,

one of my muslim friend keeps asking the same question over and over inspite of all myn by naik/ telling him.... he asks the question by Khaled Yasin that Jesus ate then if someone eats he must go to the bathroom ..can you imagine god going to the bathroom ... do you have an article that addresses this issue .. please let me know

Fernando said...

WomanforTruh(Lie): were are youuuuu?

donna60 said...

Oh my goodness! I live right here, and I haven't heard this!

In answer to Tizita, most Lebanese look white, and the women are lookers!

This is hardship. I know that Warren is filling up with Muslims but apparently so is Sharia. This is my back-door, and I am really frightened.

Mayor Bloomberg who wants to send his legal or illegal aliens to Detroit, can pick my nose and eat it too.

Transgressionista said...

and where was the mother? why was she "seddenly" remourseful after the fact. I think she had a hand in this or atleast knew about it before hand. Girls in these families suffer years of abuse. From what was said in the video, the abuse was blatant. So how did the mother NOT intervine. She's is at fault just like the father.

GreekAsianPanda said...

"From the Dearborn police officer who told us."

You should tell on them!!

David Wood said...

GAP said: "You should tell on them!!"

It's in the lawsuit complaint.

superanus said...

To be fair, this is not only found in islam, and is condemned. However as a lot of the Muslim world is less educated and subsequently sexist. However, for example a girl MUST choose who she marries and has the right to refuse. Personally the only experience I've had with honor killings is a Christain catholic who converted to islam and cannot see his family as they've trheeatened to kill him. This happens in all religions, especially in those impoversihed areas.

Radical Moderate said...

Anyone know if the Mother is a revert?

themartinimill said...

This is not a religion of peace. These are vile people who have no respect for America or our laws. I dated a women who was married to a Muslim and she said never ever trust them. And do not shop in their businesses.

Radical Moderate said...

The mother of this poor girl should be arrested and charged as well. What a godless heartless woman.

Her own daughter flees her home to escape her stepfather. Does her mother divorce this man? NO!

Her friends said "This was years in the making". So this was noticeable to her friends but not her own mother? Why didn't this godless heartless woman do something?

The Stepfather makes repeated trips to locate her to "make amends" does this concern this now loving mother? NO

This godless heartless woman now says "He was to overbearing to over controlling THINGS THAT I THOUGHT THAT WERE JUST NORMAL STRICT PARENTING. NOW WHEN I LOOK BACK I SAY NO IT WAS TO MUCH." Now she thinks it was to much, now she see's something wrong with it. NOW?

This was her Daughter for the love GOD why didn't she protect her from ISLAM.

This isn't her first dance with the devil of Islam. She was married before to another Muslim.

I pray that if she has any other Children who are minor's they are removed from her house, obviously this woman cares more about her hate filled god then she does about her own children.

Also is it just me, or does it sound like this Muslim was involved in sexually abusing his step daughter.

Fernando said...

Dear friends... as you mighte know I was a former muslim when I went from the Philippines to Indonesia... there I learnt, more or less, to memorise the Qur'an eben when I did nott grasp a single worde in arabic... in the last years, in between my classes, I tried to lear it, butt I had some difficulties...

whie am I saying this? I'm asking you iff you can present me some words in arabic (transliteartion woulde be better) withe toe S-L-M root thate might prove that Islam (submission) is not the same as Salam (peace)...

many thaks in advance...

Fernando

donna60 said...

Fernando, What is the word used for peace in the favorite Muslim quote Peace be upon you?

Because one website said it is this:

"as-Salam-u’Alaikum."

Which would indicate that the word used for peace in Arab is "Salam," not "Islam."


When I was a girl in my tom-boy- wrestling days, we used to play rough and tumble until one of us ""Stop!" "Quit beating me up!"

In that case "Uncle" meant both "Submission" and "Peace"

donna60 said...

APB. Show your friend Philippians 2:5-8


5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,

6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Except we're not talking about an "impoverished area." We are talking about the city of Warren, in the state of Michigan, USA.

Also, isolated incidents of violence and threats of violence are one thing, but which religion has the most consistent testimony of violent attacks? More importantly, whose holy text contains the best justification for such actions? I can tell you one thing, it ain't Christianity, or Hinduism, or Buddhism, or Daoism.

Monica said...

@ Radical Moderate:

No, it's not just you.

As soon as I read this story and watched this clip it was apparent to me that this man's obsession with his step-daughter had sexual overtones. She's not a blood relation and he comes from Islam, where a 25 year age difference is no big deal and multiple wives are perfectly fine. Why was he so obsessed about honor? What honor does he lose if a girl who is not his daughter is Westernized? The answer is none.
He did lose access to her, though, and that apparently motivated him.

What made his lustful motivation painfully apparent was looking at his wife. She's unsightly and overweight and since Islam devalues women so much, looks become of even greater importance in a wife. A lustful middle aged man would obviously be more interested in the stunningly beautiful 20 year old than in her cronish mother.

That woman deserves to lose custody of any other children she may have. She's a sorry excuse for a woman! To see a middle aged man bullying her daughter all those years and never to have done a thing? PATHETIC! The only possible excuse I can imagine for her negligence is if she herself came from a background of abuse and is mentally and emotionally damaged. Nevertheless, she is a danger to children!

In Islam, the penalty for assimilation is death.

Zeeshan said...

in Islam there is nothing like honor killing... you find people who have not understood Islam or are purposely making up their own rules that practice this type of oppression. Quran 2:256 "There is no compulsion in religion"... couple that with verses that condemn the killing of innocent people: "it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind" Quran 5:32 I implore you do not associate the wrongdoings of twisted people with the beliefs of an entire religion

Zeeshan,

I find your assertions a little hard to believe when news like this, linked below, comes out of Islamic nations on a daily basis:

My response:
Zeeshan, I advise you to give us the whole verse because the verse which you use destroys this idea that Islam is a peaceful religion:

For that cause We decreed for the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL that whosoever killeth a human being for OTHER THAN MANSLAUGHTER OR CORRUPTION IN THE EARTH, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth. Surah 5:32

Even if this verse was prescribed for the Muslims, let's see what the next verse says:

The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; Sura 5:33

Please don't insult our intelligence Zeeshan.

THIS IS ISLAM so we need more women to convert to Islam

stormTrooper said...

Its sad to hear such things happening in modern day world, some people just have no respect for human rights, but people need to stop arguing and bring up religon in thjis case, not all muslims are like this nor does islam teach it, every religon has it extremeist, from the kkk to the terroist its not religon responsible its people using it as an excuse

Vickii said...

There is no way to prevent this from continuing as long as these people are coming here by the droves. They want to be here so bad but they don't want to obey our laws. It doesn't work for us when we go to their countries. But that's how they operate.

sheik said...

REALLY this is the Islam , it is nothing but peace peace and nothing but peace . we really need more stupid women to give up their freedom to convert to islam
Women hurry up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
