ANOTHER FAKE HATE CRIME: Husband of Murdered Iraqi Woman in San Diego Arrested For Murder

It was all a lie – There was no hate crime…
Back in March, Kassim Alhimidi appealed to the local community to help find his wife’s killer. The family told reporters the mysterious killer snuck through the garden and into the back door and murdered Shaima Alawadi in a hate crime.

“The first hit her on her forehead then on her right ear. The third strike was on the back of her head. This was followed by five fast and consecutive strikes on her head and shoulders.”

And, then the killer, according to the family, left a threatening note at the scene of the crime.

Back in March neighbors of the Alhimidi family told reporters after the initial incident that the sliding glass window was busted from INSIDE the house. The video even shows the glass strewn about on the patio outside of the back sliding door.

Hat Tip Mara

Fast forward to November..
Police yesterday arrested Kassim Alhimidi on suspicion of murder.
He killed her while the kids were getting ready for school – then blamed it on whitey.
CBS Local 8 reported:

The husband of an Iraqi-American woman whose beating death initially raised fears of a hate crime was arrested on suspicion of murder in what police described Friday as an act of domestic violence.

Kassim Alhimidi, 48, was taken into custody Thursday after being called into the police station, said El Cajon Police Chief Jim Redman.

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.”

Redman said there were no other suspects. He declined to comment on the evidence or elaborate on a possible motive.

“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.

Of course, not everyone believed this was a hate crime from the beginning.

    Hate crime? What’s the difference between a “Hate crime,” and one that isn’t? We knew this all along. OOOOOOhh Islamaphobia, right?

  • Hera

    If a Muslim woman is killed its not by a mean old “Islamophobe” its by a Muslim. The first place to look for suspects is at the Muslim men in her family. A Muslim husband, father or brother is likely the killer. If you know anything about Islam you know that. Interesting how this Muslim family attempted to blame innocent non-Muslims for this crime.

  • Granny

    Jim – you’re wrong to not call this a hate crime. It WAS a hate crime – honor killings are a feature of islam and perfect illustrations of the sheer hatred towards women carried by many muslim men.

    “You know, comrades,” says Stalin, “that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.”

    Did anybody else notice that this 32-year-old woman had a 17-year-old daughter? That means she was 15 when he daughter was born. Probably barely 14 when she was more than likely forced to marry this pig. What a life this poor woman had. Abused since she was barely a teenager, and then beaten to death. Sharia law. coming soon to a town near you!

    deport all the mooslimes…

    I remember this murder. Afterwards, someone started a Facebook page urging women to wear a headscarf on World Day to protest “hate crimes.” A couple of Libs in the office even donned hijabs in solidarity. The husband and kids went back to Iraq to bury the wife. How stupid was he to return?

  • do you think this story will get coverage the murder did. the reason the husband faked the hate crime aspect was because he knew the democratic party-media complex would jump at the opportunity to smear americans.

  • Robb

    The husband did it. Gee who would have thought that? s/off

  • Bubba

    Yes indeed, not everyone believed this was a hate crime (good grief–is there anything that was less in doubt than THAT fantasy)?

    Yawn. Too bad tradesports doesn’t have a line on this, cuz I’d put a lot of money on HONOR KILLING.

    What I don’t get, is everyime one of these sand scum decides to live the values of the Koran and cleanse the family name by murdering one of their family members, why do they always try to cover it up like cowards? If your wife deserved to die because she bought Captain Crunch at the Infidel Wal-Mart (or whatever screwed up reason you believe you need to kill your wife to restore your honor), why not man up and proudly admit that’s why you beat her to death like a piniata?

    Instead, we have to watch the false outrage of CAIR rail against the predudice of the great Satan until the police compile their case and the inevitable happens.

    I’d bet my nuts this is just a run of the mill honor killing. Guaranteed.//

  • Ugh, and these are the same people O want to negotiate with! Never trust a Muslim

  • Lynn

    Someone should make a list of all the “FAKE” hate crimes this year.
