When Muslim Moms Kill

Editor’s note: A mother accused of murdering three of her daughters and her husband’s first wife in an honor killing recently testified in an Ontario court in Canada. Tooba Mohammad Yahya, 41, is accused of conspiring with her husband, Mohammad Shafia, 58, and their eldest son, Hamed, 21, of running one of their family cars into a canal with their four relatives inside. See Pamela Geller’s coverage of the trial here.

In these tragic and disturbing circumstances, the editors of Frontpage felt it timely and relevant to run the video of Frontpage editor Jamie Glazov’s speech in March 2011 to the San Fernando Chapter Valley Chapter for “Act! for America,” in which he brought attention to the victims of Islamic honor killings and shed light on why the Left is in league with the Muslim murderers and turns a callous blind eye to the Muslim female victims. The phenomenon crystallizes the Left’s contemporary unholy alliance with radical Islam. Below are the four parts of the 4-part speech:

Part I:

Part II:

    It is a good thing that you have pointed out these abuses! Those murdered people should be remembered. However, I think it is important to note that people who are abused often become abusers themselves. Being locked into a left/right paradigm is not particularly helpful and only serves to separate people further. There obviously is a lack of understanding, and there are always rotten apples in every group (no exceptions). More often then not- those people who tell the truth are the most demonized. Trust me I know….good luck in your pursuit.

    • wsk

      It's always someone elses fault!.

    • Joe Ordinary

      This is a specific type of domestic abuse called "honor killing" which has a completely different paradigm from the abuse you are trying to link it to. Nice try anyway.

  • kafir

    If muslims want to kill other muslims for the sake of their faith, we should support them. Who are we to say that these muslims didn't commit a death worthy transgression in islam. I would even propose that every muslim kill at least one muslim a day. I'm sure they can find at least one "other" muslim who's committed shirk, zina, possibly mocked the prophet, or maybe even "not quite muslim enough". I know I have the support of many many muslims who believe just that.

    • Yetem

      I agree. Like Obama says, we live in a pluralistic society. We must encourage the continuation of this particular cultural jewel. It would be a shame to undermine a thousand year cultural tradition.

  • 9-11 Infidel

    Wonder why the criminal Yahya is smiling? Because in Islam, "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right." However, "not subject to retaliation" is "a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring." ('Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). She thinks she did her Shatain (Allah) a favor. Someone ought to explain to the Islamic tool how it really is in the afterlife for muderers.

    • Joe Ordinary

      She can't wait to get at her 72 virgins.

      • 9-11 Infidel

        Nah. She just wants to be the madam in the heavenly whore house.

      • 9-11 Infidel

        I saw a clip of a failed female suicide bomber who when asked what a woman gets in Paradise, since a man gets 72 virgins, and the Koran says nothing about female jihadis..so what's her reward? She said that she gets to be the Madam of all the virgins. These people are bat sh_t crazy.

  • Templar

    These Muslim practices only illustrate how the Muslim religion still lives in the Middle Ages, scarsely past the Dark Ages. In the year 1390 Christianity was equally brutal, equally repressive to women, equally totalitarian and immersed in social life and rules. Time has educated the West and limited the power of the Church over society. More so, time has given the West the opportunity to learn to live in peace with and accept those who choose to think different — a practice which is now allowing for the entrance of a repressive Muslim (Sharia) way of thinking which wants to revive the barbarism of the Middle Ages.

    • Ron Carnine

      Templar, I totally disagree with your assertion that "Christianity was equally brutal, equally repressive to women". History disagrees with you as well. Granted, there were abuses and a male dominated society was the norm, however to say that Christianity and Islam were equally bad isn't congruent with the facts. Christian men and women did not engage in "honor" killings. Women didn't kill their children. In fact, Christianity demonstrated to men that they were to love and care for their wives and women were to love their husbands and children. Sure there were problems in Roman Catholic theology and practice but to allege that Christianity was on par with Islam just isn't true. Time hasn't educated anyone, it was the Judeo/Christian ethic that changed things. Also when this nation was founded it was Christians that lead the way to include separation of church and state. (To be exact it was the Baptists) However, I can't disagree with you that Islam hasn't changed since the 7th century and continues today just as it always has.

    • 9-11 Infidel

      Christianity…at least the version that Christ and his apostles practiced was never brutal to anyone. Your moral eqivalent arguement is specious. One sect of Christianity practiced a version of Christianity outside of the version practiced by the early Church. So what. The real Christianity that true Christians followed freed women, and invited all to the table equally. Nothing of the sort has ever been a part of Islam. Oh and in 1390, if one were to practice the sort of Christianity that the Apostles practiced, that individual would have been burned at the stake.

  • diann

    Jamie – what a powerful speech. Thank you for that. I would like to send it to every leftist I know…. wonder if they would watch it? Probably not, as they already have their opinions formed – no sense in presenting them with facts from the other side. Bravo for your work. Keep it coming.

  • george

    When will the libtards recognize that fundamentalist Islam is totally incompatible

    with western democracy?

    • Joe Ordinary

      Libtards might never realize that. They need a good slap.

  • Fred Dawes

    NormL SHE IS muslim And is part of islam that is the reason you don't want muslims here.

  • LindaRivera

    For the vast majority of non-Muslims, the mother and father's love for their children is unconditional. No matter how much they may disapprove of their children's behavior, the non-Muslim parents love for their children is unwavering, strong and lasts for a lifetime.

    Almighty God is Holy and Perfect. He is a merciful, compassionate God of love who is always ready to FORGIVE. God's love is stronger than life and stronger than death. God's love is eternal.

    • Joe Ordinary

      The very last person in the whole wide world who would ever turn against you should be…. your Mom and Dad. That's how we do things over here in the West.

    • Ghostwriter

      You're right. The vast majority of parents wouldn't even THINK about killing their own children. I don't consider Yahya a mother,I consider her a monster.

    • jmz

      exactly, even athiests dont do this to their kids. this is not a mother , this is a MUSLIM. t no matter how the suicidal left tries to lie and pander the simple truth is you can trace all honor killings etc to ISLAM. and nothing but islam. To muslims everything is an honor killing because nothing but islam deserves to live. the only way to stop it is to destroy islam and kill its followers. i know people dont like it but proove me wrong. we can either accept the obvious and do what is needed and make the world a better place. or we can take political correctness to its obvious conclusion with is our enslavement and death. Gods law or natural law, choose which one floats yer boat cause both dictate that we have a right to protect ourselves. islam must be destroyed for the sake of the world

      • LindaRivera

        We cannot possibly do such a thing. However, to import Muslims into our country is to commit national suicide. Islam is a totalitarian political-religious system. In the Koran, jihad is an obligation for all Muslims. The Koran commands Muslims to conquer all nations and all peoples and subjugate hated non-Muslims under excessively cruel Islamic sharia law where defenseless non-Muslims have NO human rights.

        Clearly, to import Muslims into our non-Muslim countries is to COMMIT NATIONAL SUICIDE.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    How can murder be honorable, it is anything but that. The smirk on her face tells
    one that she is and idiot or she knows that life in prison is much better than what
    she has had to date under Islam?…………………………………………William

    • wsk

      I was thinking the same thing. She ( and people like her) is why God invented the bitch-slap…..

      • wsk

        I was thinking the same thing. She ( and people like her ) is why God invented the b!**h slap.

  • g_jochnowitz

    Many Muslims hate Jews very much. Their hatred so overwhelms them that they have to kill. Since Jews may not be readily available, they kill whoever is around and easy to get to.
    If a community is filled with hatred, it is dangerous to everybody, most of all its own members.

  • Janet MacDougall

    The best set of articles about this trial is in Canada's National Post newspaper. Christie Blatchford is covering the trial in Kingston, Ontario. All of the articles are on line and well worth reading. The Toronto Star also has articles by Rosie Di Mano about the same trial.

    • justiceseeker

      we don't even need to read more. It's a muslim honor killing, one of TOO MANY in the West. We understand that even their precious children are not safe from them.

  • Jaladhi

    Muslims are mentally sick. It's Quran that turns them into mental patients and we keep hearing such horrendous tales from all over the world. Islam has be discarded from this planet if the humanity has to survive!!!

    • justiceseeker

      Muslims are becoming the Majority in most foreign countries. Their growth rate is around 2.2 as apposed to 1.8 or less of all other races/religions. There is nothing to be done to correct those numbers. They will realize world domination w/in the next 20-70 years.
