Shaima AlAwadi’s Murder Less Likely to Be a Hate Crime


Shaima AlAwadi

New facts emerging in the Shaima AlAwadi murder case reveal a family in turmoil, and though we have not reached the end of the investigation, it seems the turmoil within the family has cast doubt on the likelihood that Alawadi’s murder was a hate crime.

The uncertainty and dearth of facts surrounding the case is why at the time I wrote,

*We cannot conclude anything at this point, some facts have been presented, such as the note but we will have to wait for the police investigation to relay more information on this crime.

Of course the hatemongerers, the same people who were quick to attribute the Oklahoma City bombings to Muslims, the terrorist shooting rampage by Anders Breivik to Muslims and many more such incidents are receiving the news with glee. Islamophobes are already jumping to the conclusion that the murder is an “honor killing” though there is no evidence for such a claim.

In any case lets hope justice is served and the murderer identified and sentenced.

We will pen an update about this case as more facts are presented and also discuss the ramifications and the critical distance necessary when presented with an ambiguous murder:

Police Records Suggest Death Isn’t a Hate Crime | NBC San Diego

Police records obtained from the murder of an El Cajon woman nearly two weeks ago suggest the it may not be a hate crime.

The records reveal new information about a possible suspect and a police call made to police — in late January — by the victim herself: Shaima Alawadi.

This case has received national attention because some believe it could be a hate crime. But recently obtained records could paint a different picture.

Alawadi, 32, was found bloodied and beaten inside this home on March 21. Her 17-year-old daughter Fatima found her on the floor of their dining room – a piece of paper nearby. That note and one the family found earlier in the month — has left some fearing terrorism.

“It said this is my country, go back to yours…terrorist,â€? Alawadi’s son Mohammed said in an interview last week.

But police are continuing to call this an “isolated incident” and no arrests have been made.

Police records reveal on the day of the crime –a neighbor gave police a description–of a possible suspect. An unidentified witness spotted a young man running from the crime scene.

The suspect is described as a “darker skinned boy in his late teens or early 20s … with a skinny build, carrying a donut shaped cardboard box.”

The suspect was seen at 10:30 a.m., about 45 minutes before Alawadi’s 17-year-old daughter called 911.

Police would not comment on these records — which also reveal — Alawadi called the police herself nearly two months earlier to report her 17 year old daughter missing.

On Jan. 31 Alawadi reported the girl had been missing for 2 hours, but the call was cancelled 20 minutes later when the 17-year-old was located.

The investigation is ongoing.

    FACT: In the US, a suspect is Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Alhimidi has not been convicted.

    FACT: Even if Alhimidi is guilty, the murder does not automatically fit the profile of an “honor killing,” just because the family is of Muslim origin.

    FACT: You’re the one who jumped the gun, and you’re the one making baseless statements.

    It’s sick that bigots like you start salivating every time you think the tragic death of someone’s wife or daughter can be ruthlessly exploited to promote your hateful agenda.

    Far from trying to hide the arrest of Alhimidi, we were among the first to break the news:

    What really irks Islmo-Nazi-Leftists like Michael Ellwood and the Ralph-Adamo-of-New-Orleans is that I am right on the money, and always have been. Fact: Kassim Alhimidi murdered his wife, Shaima Alawadi, an a Honor Killing. The El Cajon Police solved the crime. But I laid out all the evidence long before that and that evidence has been posted on several sites. The stench of a Muslim Honor Killing could be smelled from miles and miles away by any thinking, reasonable person. But not by the Islamo-Nazi-Leftist professionals, dolts and dupes.

    It sucks having the same name as this guy, doesn’t it?

  • Ralph Adamo

    The El Cajon Police finally solved the Alawadi murder. It was a MUSLIM HONOR KILLING just like I’ve said all along. Will the Loons and Barbarians at LoonWatch now admit the truth? I doubt it. Wherever there are Muslims in any concentrations, there will Muslim murder, mahyem, and madness. It is the Muslim mantra. Muslims are the new Nazis. (Well, not really new, as they’ve been partnering with the Nazis from the beginning.)

    The comments here are NOT by the Ralph Adamo wholives in New Orleans. I would ask again that the Ralph Adamo posting here and generally hating Muslim people would identify himself in some way that distinguishes his identity from mine.
