Once again Muslims have murdered for honour - forgetting of course that murdering someone is the worst dishonour possible. This time it's in Sydney Australia. Maybe where they come from (Malaysia), murder is preferable to having your wife have an affair with someone else. The trial started October 18th, 2011 for Nita Iskandar (46) and Andrew Iskandar (21) in the NSW Supreme Court. Nita is the woman who was having the affair with Malaysian consulate driver Mohd Shah Saemin (43) who was beaten and stabbed to death in February 2010. But Nita was already married and this would simply not look right in their Muslim community so her husband and son (Andrew) conspired to kill the adulterer. The husband taxi-driver Hazairin Iskandar (55) will have a separate later trial and is the man accused, with his son, of the murder. His wife is accused of being an accessory after the fact because she was not cooperative with police. In fact, within days of the attack, she lied to police to protect her son, telling detectives that he was at home asleep when the attack occurred. She also paid for a plane ticket so her son could flee to Malaysia to evade capture. He did go there but was extradited back to Sydney.
Why Malaysia? That was their home country and that's where the murdered man was buried even though he had become an Australian citizen. And that's how we know they were Muslims - the local papers reported: "He was buried at 10am, witnessed by about 500 people, including his father, Saemin Mongin, 70, and three siblings, Mohd Kamal, Rohayu and Mohd Saiful, after prayers at the Kampung Tambak Paya mosque." (Malay Mail)
And the plot thickens - Andrew was not your local friendly Muslim. After the murder, he phoned Victor Lau (a friend) and confessed his role in the murder and asked Lau to give him a false alibi. But Lau was probably not a Muslim and did not go along with this shit so he refused and instead called police. So, while in jail awaiting trial, Andrew attempted to have Lau murdered, offering another inmate, Assau Maiva, about $10,000 to "do a job on him" when he got out. Not too smart a move.
The trial continues in Sydney but it's an open and shut case. There are witnesses who saw the murder and thanks to Andrew's stupidity, Victor Lau can report the confession.
Apart from the fact that here is yet another Muslim honour murder, the son is clearly partly integrated into local culture. His name is an English "Andrew". Yet he still wanted to act out barbaric behaviour carried over from his origins. His culture was winning over new Australian attitudes. Can we hope that he is an exception and that newcomers really do adopt the values of their new country more quickly? There is one thing that in a backward way is a good sign. When the Malaysians first heard about the case and before anyone was arrested, the Malaysians were reported to be pressuring Police to describe it as "road rage" and not racist or hate based. (Sydney Morning Herald) They are at least embarrassed. And the extradition was processed quickly by Malaysia. But then they are one of the more progressive Muslim countries - not fully rejecting of Islamic barbarity yet, but more so.
