It was an accident. No, wait, it was a health issue. Or something.
You can BET there’s ONE explanation they will NOT look for … and of course, it’s the most obvious one.
This is the lovely young woman who was murdered ‘as she slept’:
Jamal Mansour, 63, of Rocky River, Ohio, walked into his adult daughter’s bedroom at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday and shot her twice in the head while she slept. His daughter, Tahini Mansour, 27, died about 10 hours later at a local hospital.
“We don’t have a solid motive other than an argument occurred between a father and his daughter,” said Lt. George Lichman with Rocky River Police.
Islam experts and former Muslims say the suspect’s behavior is rife with clues but don’t look for the police or media to flesh them out and share those clues with the public.
Mansour is a Muslim immigrant from Jordan and his alleged execution-style killing of his daughter bears the hallmarks of Islamic honor violence, says Daniel Akbari, a former top Shariah lawyer in Iran who defected to the U.S. several years ago and now lives in Texas.
“Mr. Mansour might have assimilated to Western culture sufficiently to shave his beard and wear jeans but not to accept his daughter behaving like western girls,” said Akbari, author of “Honor Killing: A Professional’s Guide to Sexual Relations and Ghayra Violence from the Islamic Sources.”
Tahani Mansour was rushed to Fairview Hospital Tuesday morning. She died around 11 a.m., 10 hours after police say Jamal Mansour shot her. In front of a judge on Tuesday, he said it was an accident.
The victim’s brother called 9-1-1 for help at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday. He told the operator his father just shot his sister in her room at the family’s home on Vine Court. This is how a portion of the 9-1-1 call went:
Operator: “Go ahead sir.”
Caller: “Yes, my sister has been shot. Please send an ambulance, please.”
Operator: “OK, where has she been shot at?”
Caller: “In her room.”
Operator: “OK. Did she shoot herself? Did you see who shot her?”
Caller: “No, my father shot her.”
City Prosecutor Michael O’Shea on Thursday called it an “assassination,” but wouldn’t elaborate.
Mansour had recently returned from Jerusalem, where his family is building an apartment complex, and had the means to pay the $1.5 million bond set Tuesday, O’Shea said.
“It’s tough getting them back once they go over,” O’Shea said of Mansour’s risk to flee the U.S.
Mansour and his extended family own gas stations and grocery stores in Ohio, the prosecutor said.
Justin Withrow, one of Mansour’s attorneys, said Thursday that his client is “devastated” by his daughter’s death and called the fatal shooting a “tragic situation.” Mansour is willing to abide by court rules such as GPS monitoring and would live with a brother in another Cleveland suburb if he were to post bond, Withrow said.
Mansour was born in Jordan and came to the U.S. in 1978, eventually becoming a U.S. citizen, O’Shea said.
Don’t you love how the family tries to blame the man’s diabetes?
When asked to explain why the father would shoot his own daughter, family members blamed a medical condition; they said Mansour is a diabetic.
Any guesses how this immigrant who has received citizenship, and owns several businesses decides to shoot his daughter twice in the head? Reports have him being upset for his daughter having had a business trip to Las Vegas.
Jordan, as you may recall, is a Sharia compliant state.
And this guy, as a citizen, has the right to vote in a swing state. Do you really think he’s supporting TIGHTER border controls?
Tell us more about your ‘Moderate” Islam. Tell us more about these acts being desperate actions of impoverished and oppressed people.
Is ‘extreme vetting’ such a bad idea, after all?
