I warned that this would happen, I've written and spoken on this for a year. I said it would set a precedent. This animal is found guilty of only second degree murder? This is the ultimate miscarriage of justice! He murdered his OWN child!


A Maricopa County Superior Court jury on Tuesday found an Iraqi immigrant guilty of running down his daughter and another woman in a Peoria parking lot in Oct. 2009.

Faleh Hassan Al-Maleki was found guilty of second-degree murder for killing his daughter Noor, 20, and of aggravated assault for injuring her boyfriend's mother, Amal Khalaf, 41. He was also found guilty of two counts of leaving the scene of a fatal or injury accident.

It was never a "who-done-it" trial.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys didn't dispute that Al-Maleki hit the two women. But they disagreed on whether he meant to do it. The jury's job was to determine if Al-Maleki had committed first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder, or the lesser offenses of second-degree murder and aggravated assault. Either way, Al-Maleki was likely to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Jurors will reconvene Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. to determine if there are aggravating factors that would earn harsher sentences for Al-Maleki. Prosecutor Laura Reckart is alleging that Al-Maleki was lying in wait, that he inflicted serious injury and that he caused physical, financial and emotional harm to his victims.

At sentencing, he faces 10 to 22 years in prison for second-degree murder, 5 to 15 years for aggravated assault, and 2 to 8 ¾ years for leaving the scene of the accident. All of those sentences would be stacked on top of each other, meaning Al-Maleki can face 17 to 45 ¾ years in prison. He is already 50 years old.

Al-Maleki's attorneys said the Glendale man drove his Jeep toward the two women, but swerved to avoid Khalaf and tragically hit his daughter.

His actions were reckless, attorneys said.

"Faleh didn't intend to hurt anyone," public defender Jeffrey Kirchler said. "What happened that day was an accident, a horrible accident."

Attorneys acknowledged that Al-Maleki was saddened by his daughter's decision to move out of his home in 2009. The Iraqi immigrant wiped tears from his eyes during closing statements Feb. 14 as Kirchler told jurors about Al-Maleki's fears that Khalaf's family was a negative influence on his daughter.

But Al-Maleki never intended to kill his first-born, Kirchler said.

Police and prosecutors told a different story.

They said Al-Maleki was enraged by his daughter's choices and felt she had dishonored him, so when he saw her and the woman she had gone to live with in the parking lot, he seized the opportunity.

Police estimated Al-Maleki was traveling at least 20 miles per hour when he hit the two women.

If Al-Maleki had pressed his foot on the brakes, Noor would likely still be alive and Khalaf wouldn't have been injured, Reckart said.

"The evidence proves way beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intended, wanted and desired to erase Noor and Amal from his life and this earth," she said.



Gadi Adelman Nominated for Prestigious International Journalism Prize!

User Rating: / 32

Gadi Adelman received an email yesterday from the Lorenzo Natali Prize Committee that he had been nominated for the 2010 Journalism prize for an article they saw in The Weekly Blitz. The Weekly Blitz, which is in Bangladesh, publishes Gadi's article each week in the only anti-Jihadist newspaper in the Muslim world.

The Lorenzo Natali Prize rewards journalists committed to Human Rights, Democracy and Development. Originally reserved for the printed and online press, the Lorenzo Natali Prize has opened in 2008 to radio and television journalists.

Created in 1992 by the European Commission to promote dedicated journalism of the highest quality, it was named after Lorenzo Natali for his dedication to his work as former vice-president of the European Commission, in charge of cooperation and development between 1985 and 1989.

To organize the Lorenzo Natali Prize, the European Commission works with some of the most prestigious world press associations:

In 2009 Lorenzo Natali Prize Edition had, once again, elicited noted interest: more than 1,000 journalists from more than 133 countries participated. The 15 award winners were selected by an independent jury, made up of NGO representatives, leading journalists, and news agency representatives.

Using a twist on the screams of Jihadists, what could better than to call the show "America is great"?

Dear Mr. Adelman,

I just read your article and wanted to thank you for opposing the despicable plan to erect a mosque at the Sacred area of Ground Zero. Please keep up the information to as many people as you can and spread the word about these cowardly, murdering people.

Are you aware also, that they plan on having the opening of this mosque on the 10th Anniversary of the attacks?    If that isn't a deliberate, well planned slap in the face....nothing is.

Bad enough they pulled off their cowardly attacks, now we are letting them walk all over the graves of our loves one.

Right you are, Mr.Adelman, we've lost our minds, along with our freedoms and our way of life that we've know up to now, and we are laying out the red carpet for them threw it all.

Peace to you,

Rosemary Cain,

Mother of Firefighter George C. Cain, Ladder 7, 35 years old, died 9/11, Twin Towers
