Shaima Alawadi: Iraqi Muslim Woman Severely Beaten in California Home Dies

Shaima Alawadi: Iraqi Muslim Woman Severely Beaten, Note Near Her Body Read, “Go back to your own country. You’re a terrorist.”

A hijab wearing Iraqi woman has been severely beaten and is not expected to recover from a violent attack on her inside of her home near San Diego.

Apparently this was a premeditated attack. A similar note to the one found by Shaima Alawadi’s body was found by the Alawadi family earlier this month, but the family dismissed it as a “prank.”

USAToday reports:

A family friend, Sura Alzaidy, told the newspaper UT San Diego that the attack apparently occurred after the father took the younger children to school.

Was someone scoping the house out before the attack, waiting for an opportune moment to strike?

A woman’s life has most likely been taken as she is not expected to survive the gruesome attack. What motivated this individual to do something so grisly? If what Alzaidy told the newspaper is true, and we see no reason why it wouldn’t be, clearly we are witnessing an attack motivated by hatred and bigotry.

Islamophobes will try and claim another Muslim did this, but how then do they explain the note?

*I want to point out that we cannot conclude anything at this point, some facts have been presented, such as the note but we will have to wait for the police investigation to relay more information on this crime.

California: Muslim woman’s attacker left note reading ‘Go back to your own country. You’re a terrorist’

A 32-year-old woman was critically injured and not expected to survive after an assault in her El Cajon home on Wednesday, police said Friday, and a threatening note telling the mother of five to go back to her home country was found near her, a family friend said.

The woman’s 17-year-old daughter found her unconscious in the dining room of the house on Skyview Street off Lemon Avenue about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, said El Cajon police Lt. Steve Shakowski. Police identified her as Shaima Alawadi.

“Based on the type of injuries Alawadi sustained, and other evidence retrieved at the scene, this case is being investigated as a homicide,” Shakowski said.

Police did not disclose the contents of the note. Sura Alzaidy, a family friend, said it told the family to “go back to your own country. You’re a terrorist.” The family is from Iraq, and Alawadi is a “respectful modest muhajiba,” meaning she wears the traditional hijab, a head scarf, Alzaidy said.

El Cajon police Lt. Mark Coit said the family stated they had found a similar note earlier this month, however did not report it to authorities.

The daughter who found her mother told KUSI Channel 9/51 on Friday night that her mother had been beaten on the head repeatedly with a tire iron. She said her mother had dismissed the previous note, found outside the house, thinking it was a child’s prank.

**********************************

Update I: Shaima Alawadi has succumbed to her injuries according to this youtube user who uploaded video of Alawadi’s daughter being interviewed:

Update II:  EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — A 32-year-old woman from Iraq who was found severely beaten next to a threatening note saying “go back to your country” died on Saturday.

Hanif Mohebi, the director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he met with Shaima Alawadi’s family members in the morning and was told that she was taken off life support around 3 p.m.

“The family is in shock at the moment. They’re still trying to deal with what happened,” Mohebi said.

Alawadi, a mother of five, had been hospitalized since her 17-year-old daughter found her unconscious Wednesday in the family’s house in El Cajon, police Lt. Steve Shakowski said.

The daughter, Fatima Al Himidi, told KUSI-TV her mother had been beaten on the head repeatedly with a tire iron, and that the note said “go back to your country, you terrorist.”

Addressing the camera, the tearful daughter asked: “You took my mother away from me. You took my best friend away from me. Why? Why did you do it?”

Police said the family had found a similar note earlier this month but did not report it to authorities.

Al Himidi told KGTV-TV her mother dismissed the first note, found outside the home, as a child’s prank.

A family friend, Sura Alzaidy, told UT San Diego (http://bit.ly/GYbfB7) that the attack apparently occurred after the father took the younger children to school. Alzaidy told the newspaper the family is from Iraq, and that Alawadi is a “respectful modest muhajiba,” meaning she wears the traditional hijab, a head scarf.

Investigators said they believe the assault is an isolated incident.

“A hate crime is one of the possibilities, and we will be looking at that,” Lt. Mark Coit said. “We don’t want to focus on only one issue and miss something else.”

The family had lived in the house in San Diego County for only a few weeks, after moving from Michigan, Alzaidy said. Alzaidy told the newspaper her father and Alawadi’s husband had previously worked together in San Diego as private contractors for the U.S. Army, serving as cultural advisers to train soldiers who were going to be deployed to the Middle East.

Mohebi said the family had been in the United States since the mid-1990s.

He said it was unfortunate that the family didn’t report the initial threatening note.

“Our community does face a lot of discriminatory, hate incidents and don’t always report them,” Mohebi said. “They should take these threats seriously and definitely call local law enforcement.”

El Cajon, northeast of downtown San Diego, is home to some 40,000 Iraqi immigrants, the second largest such community in the U.S. after Detroit.

  8. That is just disgusting. Then again, I can’t expect much else. I am not a Muslim, but out of respect I will wear a hijab when my friends take me to a mosque. I don’t bother with taking it off when we go eat afterward because it’s not like a hijab is an embarrassing or tiresome thing to wear. I could not count the number of dirty, scathing looks that my white, English-speaking self got when my friends and I went out like this. It pains me to see ignorant people view brown skin, an accent, a beard, or a piece of cloth as a weapon of mass destruction.

  26. I am horrified that in this country – with our soldiers having given life and limb to countries in the middle East to make them safer – we have citizens who might even contemplate harming somone because of their choice of headwear or religion. If I had the family’s address, Iwould send my condolences. Unfortunately, I will have to settle for expressing them through this comment section. Please know that not all Americans are hateful…most of us welcome you and all you do to enrich our country. Please accept our sincere condolences from Idaho.

  27. I wonder where Pam Geller and Robert Spencer and all the other loons who talk a great deal about spousal abuse and honor killings are on this one? I guess if a sister gets killed by a non-Muslim, it’s not a big deal…in fact, it’s a good thing to them, or it’s self-defense. However, when an angry or an extremist Muslim kills his wife or daughter, it’s becomes seen as a problem with Islam, and the story is paraded by the drive-by media.

Can’t be racist towards blacks, but Mexicans and musliums okay by us.

  149. Beating a poor, defenseless mother to death…and you say THEY are the terrorists? Anyone who chooses to spread the misinformation and lies that lead people to do such crimes, look what that has done. It leads the ignorant to believe that every Muslim is some sort of Jihadi extremist. Perhaps how we should persecute every Christian as a murderer. Do you know why we don’t do that? Because it’s stupid to punish anyone for a crime they didn’t commit. So please, for the sake of all the mothers, fathers, and children in the world, enough spamming the internet with bigotry, hate, prejudice. Islam is a religion, a very decentralized one. yes, there are militants, just as there are militant Christians in Africa and Marxists in South America. And I don’t care if you beat every Taliban fighter and LRA leader to death. But target them, and only because of the crimes they’ve committed, not the religion that they practice or the culture that they come from. My prayers are with this woman and her family, and may God preserve them and the rest of the world from the hatred, fear, and violence that seems more and more acceptable in this deteriorating world.

  162. The saddest part is the El Cajon Police Department didn’t say a word until now that she died. She was found on Wednesday and has been in the hospital since, but not a word got out about it!
    I find this extremely hard to live with – this happened where I live, and to think this person is still roaming my neighborhood free scares me!
    El Cajon, California is full of people fleeing the Middle East – mainly Chaldean’s, but we do have some Muslims. My apartment building is mostly Middle Easterners, so the thought of someone has the will to do this to them kills me!
    Unfortunately, this portion of San Diego is full of xenophobic, homophobic, and sexist people. I’ve live here for three years and since I have witness fights of neighbors on neighbors because one side of the street was white and the other was black. I’ve seen people driving their cars with “God hates fags” written on their back window… It’s an extremely conservative red district, but this is beyond words.
    I’m worried and heartbroken, but I don’t know what to do! Do you guys know of any groups coming together or what needs to be done to get justice?

  171. Folks, this is a direct result of neocon hatred spread in this country–spread by Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Mark Levine, Laura Ingraham and their like. Every day they fill the airwaves with hate and fear of anyone that isn’t exactly like them and their weak minded sheep followers do what they are supposed to: hate and fear ethnics, women, progressives, doctors, scientists, intellectuals, etc.
    This is the price America pays for letting that kind of filth on the air.

  177. This is absolutely horrible. Grieving for this woman’s brutal death and for Trayvon. When will the hatred stop?

  178. First of all, we have to define terrorism
    properly… If a non-Muslim do something bad..it is
    crime. But if a Muslim commit same..he is terrorist…So
    first remove this double standard…then come to the
    point..! This christian terrorist and extremist must be killed by lethal injection and nothing else..! This innocent iraqi women was killed just becoz she was a muslim and same america gov’t who made her country a death zone..! WMD was never seen in Iraq.

  183. Since this happened in the US, her murderer will not have immunity from prosecution because he killed a member of a minority religion.

  184. ?Lynching is still alive and well- looking at whats been happening in Florida with the Trayvon case. May Allah have mercy on her and her family! This is really a shame. There is just so much hate against the “others.” We need to do something about these crimes. There is a SERIOUS need for educating people about other cultures/races.There are some real coo coos who have HATE in their heart and act upon it. Ugly thoughts can become ugly actions. The hate stars as a thought t in the head and combined with a dirty heart become actions. People should never turn a blind eye to hate crimes because someone is of a different religion or race. Hate is hate. It is what it is. Hate loves no one . The hater is the one who should be isolated. We need to stick together AGAINST hate crimes!!!

  202. This is beyond just saying it is sad. These issues need to be stopped. People can blame the fear mounger’s who spew falsehood about Islam and Muslims. It is time for this to stop in the USA before more people are hurt and killed. Also this is not the first time this has happened it has been happening for 10 years.

I’ve been living in the US for 15 years now and I’m starting to think that maybe @Trisha Spinelli is right – time to leave the death culture ….

  228. the whole comment was sick, and I just dont know why people continue to think muslim women have no rights, I can only assume these people have not a clue to what they are talking about..this crime is sad, she was not killed becasue she was a woman, she was killed becasue she was from Iraq, and that straight up makes it a hate crime!!!

  230. its not bcz so few people in this world are muslim and terorist that others muslims are terrorist too!! we must get rid of this predjudices !

  231. its not bcz so few people in this world are muslim and terorist that others muslims are terrorist too!! we must get rid of this predjudices !

  232. I have to agree- Americans have been manipulated by the media- repeat a lie enough times – eventually ppl will believe it. I’m so sick and tired of the ” terrorist” word- and the moment you say or hear it all you can think of is ” muslim ” guess why ? Because each time they say a muslim in the media somehow they also connect the word ” terrorist ” as there are no other terrorist on this planet – only ” muslim type ” Common. Why don’t anyone says ” christian terrorist ” for any crime that happens out there ? A XY comes and kills all his co-workers or students in schools or a priest rapes kids for decades or someone kills because they believe in the “savor ” and afterbirth etc- but no one ever says ” Christian terrorist” they only say ” a crazy INDIVIDUAL” a ” Criminal”.. etc.. but never connect it to the entire community/race/religion ! So stereotype and not fair! So if this is as we claim each and every day – truly the ” Land of free ” ,free RELIGION for all – why was this women ( as many oters ) attacked ? Why did she have to endure this torture ?Because of her choice of religion ? How many muslims ARE BORN in the USA? Some are converts -and there origins are from the U.S- and there only language is english.. but they “CHOOSE” to believe into something that is there INDIVIDUAL RIGHT ! They are not comitting a crime by choosing their religion??!?! So where are they supposed to ” return? People stop spreading stereotypes, stop spreading rumors and lies that the media is feeding you with. Don’t you understand that no child has done anyone wrong ? A child in iraq cries and bleeds the same way your child cries and bleeds here – no difference. If you wouldn’t be able to kill a child in the us. why than support killing of children anywhere else ? No matter where or what religion- children ARE innocent. Women like this ARE innocent. Today it’s her beause of her choice of religion- tomorrow it could be you for your choice.. don’t you understand -this way the ” freedom” is taken away.

  233. as mona N jamal affaney said the pb was that people think that because we are muslims we dont have any right! but its false!! the pb is that a lot of people still have the same predjudices about muslims!

When an American kills someone, because of he is full of bigotry/hate, he is labeled as depressed or phsychotic. Whoever committed this crime is a terrorist IMO. He caused tremendous terror to this poor woman, her family and her community.

  264. Raidah,

    Anon is making the point that non-Muslim have been brutally murdered by Muslims in Islamic countries with the Muslims not being brought to justice.Egypt is one example, Christians are murdered there by Muslims and nothing is done. Another example is Afghanistan where American soldiers have been shot in the back of the head by Afghan Muslim soldiers and the Muslim killers have not been brought to justice.

    As for this case, something does not sound right to me. Most women are killed by the men in their life rather then strangers.I suspect we will eventually find this unfortunate woman was killed by someone she knew and not a non-Muslim.

  265. The daughter’s behavior is odd and unconvincing.

  266. I am so sorry for her family and will keep them in my heart. We must remember that what a few lone individuals do do not represent the whole. Every country and every religion has extremists. The criminal must be found and justice served.

    I want justice for Christianah Oluwaseissin.

    The authorities in Libya said the people who desecrated the graves there were “too dangerous to arrest”. I guess the person who slit Christianah’s throat in full view of everyone was too.

    This is not just a few lone wolf extremists this is a huge violent worldwide political movement with a number of branches. The Toulouse shooter was well armed and supported by his group apparently.

  271. In addition to my previous comment I will say this… A few years ago I came very close to marrying a Pakistani Muslim and we had already agreed that I would try to raise Muslim children in the closest way I possibly could to a Pakistani household, as both he and I thought that American culture was not very conducive to a good upbringing. Although I am not a Muslim myself, I volunteered that I would wear a hijab permanently once we started having kids so that I could set a good example for our daughters. He was going to take care of religious education, I was going to take care of cultural. Given this, I’ll be damned if I just sit by and watch some sister tortured for her religion and choice of clothing. That could have been me if our relationship had been successful. If she had not worn a hijab, this would not have happened. And that’s what makes it so inappropriate. They took an obvious sign of her faith and origins and then they bashed her face in for it. Where is the justice in that?

  275. Some people, such as barenakedislam, are already claiming that the husband killed her in an “honor killing” and left the note to throw the police off. I guess it doesn’t matter that he has a sound alibi. They would rather demonize the victim’s family than face the probability that one of their own committed this hate crime. How deplorable. I am praying for that poor woman’s family.

  277. How can this happen? That poor daughter and that poor woman! I am incensed that a woman can be assaulted and murdered in cold blood–in the privacy of her own home! How can such hate live in someone’s heart? I am Catholic, and it is devastating to see the evil which compels people to act in this way. People murder so easily. Our whole society has become desensitized to the tragedy of bloodshed. We are all human beings made in the image of God. Nobody should ever kill in the name of God, and if something cannot be Done in the name of God, it should never be done! My prayers are with that family, and all those who suffer this type of hateful persecution.

  279. Ellie Hampton,

    if they own their house she should be listed on the counties property page. you should be able to search those records by name online and find the address. or maybe they rent, not being allowed to borrow money with interest may make home ownership more difficult? who knows how the muslims manage to buy big ticket items without usury?

    human,

    that’s too bad that you think of muslims when you hear the word terrorist. i don’t. i can certainly name more none muslim terrorist groups of the top of my head then muslim ones. ira, eta, alf, elf, real ira, shinning path, farc, november 17th? or is it 21st i can never remember which, the greek commies. al-qade, al-something brigade, plo, hamas, hezbollah, mek, boko haram.

  280. that was closer than i thought? forgot ji in indonesia. bali bombers. speaking of indonesia, i think anon is referencing these type things you read about coming out of islamic majority countries.

    http://www.magpiesalmagundi.com/2011/08/one-more-indonesian-news-article.html

    no one ever said american wasn’t without violent tendencies, but we are working towards a more just nation. not mired in ancient mythologies.

    human, you say children are innocent. guess you never read the story in the koran where “the green one” kills a child for having a “corrupt heart”. that aint straight outta compton dat straight outta da coran.

    Siyajkak, how could i forget the LRA, been around so long and in the news recently. anyways, i wouldn’t jump to any conclusions. this site has a history or crying hate crime before the facts are in.

    to the moron author of this piece: “but how then do they explain the note?” lol. ok, so if i’m a muslim husband who wants to kill my wife. i may consider a tactic of trying to throw the investigation in a different direction. so i send a note to my own house and leave one at the scene to make it look like it’s a hate crime. it’s called disinformation or planting evidence to hide the real killer. not that i know any of that to have happened but it is a possibility. that’s how you explain the note dumbass. where do they find these “journalist”?

  281. I feel sorry for this woman and her familly! Just ashamed of being American. what has /have the murderer/s gain? Nothing. If they think that foreigners should leave, then we are all foerigners. I guess Muslims should go back to all their countries, and all other nationalities to their own too. white folks to where ever their grand fanthers came from. We will leave america to native americans. Muslims in europe will also leave europe. All europeans and americans will leave the muslims/ arabic countries. Each stays in his own country and there would be no more hate crimes! then we will see if this world will function! I bet we will all invading each other’s countries! Well I am sure Fox TV will find an excuse for the Murderer since the victim was a Muslim. What a joke this country has become.

  282. Hi,

    Okay so I totally agree with some of the comments and disagree with others. Well yes there are Wives killed by their husbands but that doesnt only happen within the muslim community. It happens in every group. Yes, the media only hears about it when Something happens to the muslims, but why? The media loves single-ing out minorities and so this is all the media’s fault. Why do they have to convince the people that Muslims are bad? There is nothing wrong with muslims in general. Im not saying that all muslims are perfect and they do everything right, I am saying that not all muslims are bad. And not all christians, jews, hindus, etc. are perfect either. There are messed up people in every religion, but not all people from one religion are messed up. My heart goes out to the woman’s family and children. Imagine living without a mother at 17 and the other five children are probably younger. Please stop with the rude comments.

  283. wow…very sad….

  284. May her soul rest in peace..There is NO excuse for her being killed by anyone..And people need to actually do some research on Islam before trash talking it.

  285. They should question her husband. It was probably an “honor killing”. He also more than likely left the note himself to make the Muslim the victim of racism.

  286. This was a heartbreaking tragedy that should never have happened in this country. I hope they find the person responsible quickly. My heart goes out to Shaima’s family.

  287. “If she had not worn a hijab, this would not have happened.” how do you know that???????????????

    for you facebook people who are new to this site. there was an article here before the facebook link about a muslim woman shot 6 times. the husband shot once, in the foot. everyone was like oh my god she was shot for being muslim. no the husband arranged the whole thing. have ya’ll ever heard of the duke lacrosse team??????????

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/family-murdered-muslim-woman-raises-questions-husbands-story/story?id=14332790

    and that goes double for all the people who think they know what happened in the zimmerman/martin case.

  288. does it matter,

    who said here that all muslims are bad?

    cindy,

    what do you think of the hadith’s that say you should stone adulterers?

    Book 017, Number 4199:

    Jabir b. Samura reported that there was brought to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) a short-statured person with thick uncombed hair, muscular body, having a mantle around him and he had committed adultery. He turned him away twice and then made pronouncement about him and he was stoned. Then Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: We set out for Jihad in the cause of Allah and one of you lagged behind and shrieked like the bleating of a male goat and one of then (goats’ gave a small quantity of milk. In case Allah gives me power over one of them, I will punish him (in such a way that it may have a deterrent effect upon others). In another narration transmitted on the authority of Sa’id b Jubair (the words are), that He (the Holy Prophet) turned him away four times.”

    Look in the mirror muslims!!

  290. I’ve seen enough of this for years and it’s getting pretty much offensive! Are they getting even with vurnable souls lke them? I have encountred thousands of Muslim families in all my life and believe me thier hospitality for guests is much more than our community! stop the hate for everyone and pleace leave everyone to live in peace for the love of everything holly to all of you… leave everyone alone and start worrying about your own problems insted of causing others to suffer more than they have.. and let us all pray here for God to have mercy on that poor thing insted of making jokes and being sarcastic alright? again STOP THE FUCKING HATE AND LET EVERYONE LIVE IN FUCKIN PEACE

  291. i belive her husband kill her, no one would kill someone and live note for that person after she die. but no one know, i fell sorry 4 her. My husband is from Iraq, and he dont let me wear hair cover as he sai its to danger for me. I wish to found the place all people can be same, and no one would need to be afraid of be who he is…. God bless all of us.

  292. one more thing. I grow up in Poland, almost my all family ( 4 of them are old believers) is christian, I grow up as a christian, and my child 2. I don’t blame no one for what he believe. In history way, it was Christians who kill the most of people in name of they God. Not Muslim or any other religion. BUT I DON’T BELIEVE THAT OUR BELIEVING ARE BAD.
