Noor Faleh Almaleki has died

Noor Faleh Almaleki has died. From injuries suffered when her father ran her down. Do not believe that it was because she was too Westernized. That is nonsense. This was a premeditated murder.

Noor Almaleki had been forcibly married off like chattel to a man in Iraq by her father. She rejected that, came back to Arizona, and found love with a young man also from Iraq.

Faleh Hassan Almaleki discussed with his family his plan/desire to kill his daughter.

Faleh Hassan Almaleki then ran down his own daughter with his Jeep. He also ran down the mother of Noors boyfriend, Amal Khalaf.

Faleh then drove south to Nogales where he abandoned his vehicle and made his way to Mexico City presumably via bus. He must have had his passport with him because he flew from Mexico City to London (having flown to Heathrow and Gatwick before, I was not allowed anywhere near the aircraft until showing my passport - this access was controlled by the British). British officials returned him to the USA where he was immediately taken into custody.

Faleh has admitted to running down his daughter for "bringing shame on the family".

Noors brother defends his father in local media interviews with idiotic statements of cultural differences.

Any culture which would not consider it shameful that a father murders his own daughter who, as an adult, made choices he did not approve of, is unworthy of existing.

Other questions to consider: Why didn't officials in Mexico City stop him? Why did he get all the way to London before anyone stopped him?

She was so beautiful too.
My prayers are with those who knew and loved her, especially her boyfriend.

As for her father, I would like to see him get the death penalty. (And I am one of those who believe it should be used very rarely.)
