Muslim Murdered Christian Woman in Texas for Encouraging his Daughter to Marry w/o Permission


The Taliban is also in Texas. It’s everywhere that Islam goes.

The father, a strict Muslim, was furious when his Jordanian-American daughter married a man without his permission.

Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan blamed his daughter’s husband, relatives say. They say he also faulted one of her closest friends, 30-year-old Gelareh Bagherzadeh, a Christian convert who widely denounced Islam.

First Bagherzadeh was killed, gunned down outside her parents’ Galleria townhouse complex in January 2012. Eleven months later, Irsan’s son-in-law died after being shot multiple times in the northwest Harris County apartment he shared with his wife.

Bagherzadeh had moved from Tehran just four years before, and had spoken out publicly against the Iranian regime. Christian converts like her are often executed in Iran.

Unfortunately a Muslim freelance executioner found her in this country as well.


Bagherzadeh had moved to Houston to join her parents in 2007, turning her back on life for women under Iran’s oppressive Islamic regime.

Friends have said she told them she was once arrested for not wearing the correct dress, and had been strictly disciplined for dating a man who was considered inappropriate.

She told them she was so sick of Islam that she converted to Christianity and was baptized at Second Baptist Church.

On Jan. 15, 2012, she was driving from the Beavers’ home in Spring when she was shot while turning into her parents’ town home complex in the 800 block of Augusta. She was chatting with a friend on the phone, who told police he heard her scream before her car crashed into a garage.

This wasn’t the first time her killer had done this sort of thing. He had gotten away with it once.

It wasn’t the first time one of his children had defied Ali Isran, relatives say. He was furious, they say, when another daughter, Nasemah, married a Houston man of whom he disapproved.

In September 1999, Ali Irsan killed 29-year-old Amjad Alidam with a 12-gauge shotgun in the Tower Glen community in east Montgomery County. He claimed his son-in-law was abusing his daughter and had threatened him and his family.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s office did not charge Irsan because it appeared the shooting was in self-defense, according to newspaper archives.

And the story followed the same pattern.


Cory Beavers first met Nesreen Irsan at Lone Star Community College. She was shy and naive, he said, and largely prevented from going out. He introduced her to Coty, who’d had a string of failed relationships.

“They just both fell for each other,” Cory Beavers said. “They were head over heels in love to the point that it was pretty nauseating to be around them.”

Nesreen transferred to The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where she studied molecular genetics. She befriended Bagherzadeh, a classmate, and introduced her to Cory Beavers. Soon those two also were dating.

But in the Spring home Nesreen shared with her husband, life was stressful. They moved in together after marrying in the summer of 2011 in a civil ceremony so as not to attract attention. She was afraid of her father, Beavers said.

The father, meanwhile, was canvassing the couple’s neighborhood, handing out pictures of Coty Beavers and claiming he was trying to find his daughter, Cory Beavers said.

Even after they obtained a protective order against him, the elder Irsan would show up unannounced or call in the middle of the night, Beavers said.

“He had a very fundamentalist interpretation of Islam and believed that (Irsan) was supposed to marry a guy that he chooses,” he said.

And despite all that, it took two years for him to finally be charged in one out of three murders.


Cory Beavers said he’s relieved that Ali Irsan is in custody, having feared for his safety as well. Still, Beavers said, both his brother and his girlfriend are dead.

This isn’t the first time this happened. And it won’t be the last. This is only a small part of the Islamic impact on America.

It’s not just planes crashing into skyscrapers. It’s also a woman being murdered in the name of Islam.

    Beautiful children and their innocent hopes and dreams snuffed out for what?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      for Islam, in the name of Allah and Mohammed

      as so many children have been killed for over a thousand years

      • Anamah

        Daniel how important is for you that the Bill of American Law for American Courts has been approved in Florida and eight other states?

        • Daniel Greenfield

          it’s a start

    • DogmaelJones1

      Beautiful children and their hopes and dreams aren’t in the Islamic program. Islam isn’t about your personal values. It’s about Mohammed’s anti-values.

    Bath the perp in pigs blood.

  • SoCalMike

    Shower him with it for a month.

    I like the firing squad idea.

      All it takes in one to the back of the head.

    Islam is destroying civilization one body at a time.

  • John Barleycorn

    Muslims must go . . .

  • Kat

    Execute these murderers with bullets dippd in pigs’ blood.

  • jane

    so sad. Islam should not be allowed in any country unless it is in the country it originated in. Islam laws infringe on united states laws.

  • SweetMarmot

    Hopefully they’ll finally put this creep away for good so he can’t hurt anyone else. They let them get away with it, and of course, they’ll do it again.

    • MarilynA

      So what if they put this one away. There are hundreds of thousands just like him in this country due to Bill Clinton’s allowing Somalian Muslim refugees to come in. I think half of the Muslims who lived in Somalia were brought here during the 1990s. Clinton relocated 200,000 each to cities like Atlanta, Detroit/Dearborn, West TN near Memphis, and numerous other cities with large black populations. Obama continued bringing Muslim terrorists here in the guise of them being Refugees. Why we don’t take in the real refugees, the non Muslims being slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands by Muslims, instead of the Muslims who are causing the problems is a mystery to me. I suspect this country has a death wish.

  • JackSpratt

    We are absolutely stuck on stupid, allowing these neanderthals, these barbarians from the 5th century to live among us. These are subhumans that can not live among civilized people.

    • BS77

      Michael Savage has asked the question repeatedly on his radio show…..Why on earth do we have to admit these barbarians into our country??? There is no rational explanation. The 9/11 hijackers were admitted to the US on the flimsiest of reasons….since then…..well, count all the honor murders, terror attacks on US citizens. Look at England, Holland or Sweden. Are there any possible explanations for these insane immigration policies?

    • DucLap

      Please don’t call followers of Islam “neanderthals.” It is grossly inaccurate and a horrible insult to Neanderthals who were just trying to get by in a harsh and primitive world. Islam is a death cult of power grabbing, extreme ignorance, extreme violence and extreme hatred.

  • NJK

    “It’s not just planes crashing into skyscrapers. It’s also a woman being murdered in the name of Islam.”

    And I believe, one using the White House, and other agencies with his people spread around, to commit attacks on America. Letting veterans die is just one of them.

  • RSnyder

    A Koran in one hand, a bloody blade in the other. Or a bomb. God Is Great. 72 virgins. God Is Great. Heavenly nookie in exchange for death. God Is Great. Allah and the prophet will not be offended! God Is Great. Issssslaaaammmmm. Call today. Our operators are waiting.

    • Kenneth Munson Sr.

      What they don’t tell them is that the 72 virgins are Catholic Nuns.

  • Hard Little Machine

    At least no one said bad things about black people or gays. That would be a crime.

  • iluvisrael

    islam is not healthy for children and other living things…..anyone remember that poster?

  • garyfouse

    It appears that the alternative theory of Gelareh being the victim of a long distance contract hit by the Iranian government has gone out the window. All signs point to an honor killing.

    Maybe now those 200 or so Muslim leaders in the US will be motivated to sign the Freedom Pledge letter from Former Muslims United to say that apostates in the US should not be harmed. Don’t hold your breath. To date, only two have signed.
