I am not sure why Islam Said has not been arrested (like the brother indicted last week on obstruction of justice charges in a similar honor killing in Canada). What I will say is that it is a crime that this walking time bomb is allowed to threaten, harass, and intimidate any family members that speak out against the honor killing of fAmina and Sarah.
Islam keeps telling Aunt Gail that he is "going to send her to hell so she can say hi to the girls". Law enforcement should be tracking this head case and monitoring Yaser's brothers as well.
Islam has recently deleted his vile myspace page that lauded his murdering, raping, misogynist father. But he continues to post threats, most particularly directed at Gail. But Gail will not back down.
Here, for the first time, Amina and Sarah's Great Aunt Sarah, writes in her own words, a statement for the public. I love this woman. She is brave. Gail is determined that Amina and Sarah did not die in vain.
The Terror Stops Here!
On January the first, my life was turned upside down. With one phone call, and the news of my great-neices (Sarah and Amina Said) murders, I was driven to explore the why's of thier deaths! In doing so, I was forced to face something so very foreign to me..."honor killings". Indeed, Sarah and Amina were murdered for the sake of "cleansing" the Said name! How did they dirty this name? Both girls, thought for themselves, they saw education as an open door to freedom and to a life they could only dream about! Amina, fought the idea of having to go to Egypt, after graduation, only to be married off to whomever daddy had chosen!
She spoke to one of her teachers about her fear but, truly, no one heard her words of despair! No one heard Sarah's words when she would freely speak of her fear of her dad! No one, listened to these girls except for the deceptive dad and the spying brother! In fact, Sarah had proclaimed that she was afraid of her uncles taking her away and yet, no comfort nor, security did she ever find! Not in this life!!
These two brilliant girls are in a grave this very day because of a terroristic family and not one single person to truly place trust. Instead, look at the photos of these girls and you will see that they shared more than a sisterhood...they shared pain, terror and eventually...death, together, at the hands of thier dad and others who helped him accomplish his "duty".
In my search for answers, I discovered things which have just broken my heart! Yaser Said, not only terrorized, sexually abused, and murdered his own children...he raped my youngest niece and molested another one as well! I was LIVID when I found this out! Especially, because my sister, the mother to these girls, NEVER said a word to me about these things! Why? I asked myself for months! Then, finally I was told why she could not tell me. She was afraid Yaser would kill one of them. If her husband had tried to talk to Yaser, she knew Yaser would kill him as, Yaser always drove around with a machine gun and he let them know this too. Had she informed the police, I am certain he would have retaliated. In other words, Yaser was terrorizing most of my sisters entire family! She died at the age of fifty, from a major stroke....now, I understand why! Her life was filled with the knowledge of what Yaser was capable of doing and on many occasions, she would voice her fears to me, "I am afraid that one day, Yaser will kill those girls and Tissy too"! Well, we certainly know that part of her fears have come to fruition!
Finding out about Yaser's reign of terror, has made me realize that he has terrorized three generations of my family! MY generation (my sister), my nieces generation and his own childrens! That's three generations which have suffered horribly, at his hands and yet, he is still a free man! How can this be? I'll tell you! They all allowed him to terrorize them!
Now, the terror has been turned on me. No, not by Yaser but, by Yaser JR., Islam, his stepford son! He has sent me phone threats, which I have recorded, blogged threats and hopes to send me to hell so I can say hello to Amina and Sarah! GRRrrrrr! See, he can't even threaten me without being nasty towards his dead sisters!! What a loving brother, NOT! Islam, has sent threats through the girls sight which was set up for the sake of advertising the reward fund for Yaser's capture. This boy is one tacky, angry and militant thinker. It is sad that he has so much hatred instilled within him but, he is Yaser's clone!
In as much, I want to freely state that I have not had one ounce of fear from any of the threats! I will not fear because I do not have too! The terror to this family STOPS here and NOW! They might as well throw the venomous words of terror to the wind because they are not working on me! Unlike my sister, my neices and Sarah and Amina, I understand my rights and the freedoms given to me by the laws of my country. I am a patriot, in this country and this means you cannot take my freedoms from me because you do not like my saying this is an honor killing! TOUGH. Sarah and Amina were silenced...this is why I will always speak for them until justice is served! You will NEVER hear words of despair again, not from this family!
