Christmas is a time of heart warming songs, sweet memories, traditional celebrations, gifts, joy, love and family. For most American families, it is precisely that although we are told that it is also one of the years most depressive seasons, especially for those who don’t have anyone. Even those of other religions sometimes do the gifting part of Christmas although they don’t accept the fact that Christians celebrate it as the traditional birthday of Jesus.
Why on earth was a Muslim family from Texas celebrating Christmas with gifts and joy? While the national news media seems to be deaf to the fact that a Muslim family was doing precisely that – celebrating Christmas – when the Muslim husband and father of two children, ages 19 and 15, decided to play Santa Claus complete with the red suit attire. His gift to his family was that of death!
According to what I’ve read on the internet, the Muslim father Aziz Yazdanpanah, showed up at his estranged wife’s apartment in Colleyville, Texas, and killed her as well as his two children Nona Yazdanpanah, 19, his daughter; Ali Yazdanpanah, 15, his son; as well as Zohreh Rahmaty, 58, his sister-in-law; Hossein Zarei, 59, his brother-in-law; and Sahra Zarei, 22, his niece. I wonder, did he say, “Ho, Ho, Ho!” as he fired the murderous shots or was it merely, “Allah Akbar.” I guess we’ll never know.
Once again, in the name of the peaceful religion, lives have been snuffed out and a trail of blood has been left behind. Thankfully, this time, the murderer took his own life saving the State of Texas from a costly and lengthy trial while CAIR decried his innocence under Sharia Law. How very sad this entire situation is. When will it stop?
