Christian-Americans Forbidden To Kill Murderer If He Is Muslim
by Phyllis Chesler
Remember the case in which Faleh al-Maleki, an Iraqi-American father brutally ran over his daughter, Noor, in Arizona, then attempted to escape but was apprehended in Britain and returned to face justice?
Guess what's just happened? The Arizona prosecutors have been scared off seeking the death penalty. Public defender Billy Little raised the specter of "How will it look for Christians to execute a Muslim?"
I kid you not.
Billy Little asked the judge to "take special precautions to ensure the County Attorney's Office wouldn't wrongly seek the death penalty because Almaleki is a Muslim." Little called for an "open process (to) provide some level of assurance that there is no appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs," referring to County Attorney Andrew Thomas.
