We have a feeling that this isn’t going to make it into an episode on the new show, “All-American Muslim.”
“Neighbors horrified at news of family’s slayings in Grapevine.”
Citing public records and interviews with friends and neighbors, media reports identified Aziz Yazdanpanah and others who had died: his estranged 55-year-old wife, Fatemeh Rahmati, their 19-year-old daughter, Nona Narges Yazdanpanah, and 15-year-old son, Ali Yazdanpanah. Friends of the family said Fatemeh Rahmati’s 58-year-old sister, Zohreh Rahmaty, and her husband, Hossein Zarei, 59, and daughter Sahra Zarei, a 22-year-old pre-med student at the University of Texas at Arlington, also were killed.
Have yourselves a very muslim Christmas,
Let the bullets fly…
Aziz Yazdanpanah seemed to be losing control of his life in recent months — his wife left him, his house was in foreclosure, and his 19-year-old daughter was dating a young man he didn’t like.
…mainly because he wasn’t a, you know, muslim. But you can’t say that in the Dallas Morning Snooze or you’ll be branded a RAAAAACIST.
Yazdanpanah, a volunteer high school debate coach described as a doting father,
…when he wasn’t busy gunning his children down in religious fury, that is. But other than that, he was the very model of a doting father.
is the focus of suspicion a day after a Christmas morning massacre in which a man dressed as Santa Claus killed six relatives and then committed suicide.
“Focus of suspicion?” They haven’t gotten the corpse out of the Santa costume and pulled the fake beard off yet?
Yazdanpanah said he bought a gun after expressing concern that his daughter’s boyfriend was stalking him. He also insisted on picking up his daughter from her job at a phone kiosk inside Sam’s Club in Grapevine because of concerns about the alleged stalker.
And, of course, in case he suddenly was overcome with the urge to hunt elk. All perfectly normal for your garden-variety “doting father.”
But a more ominous portrait emerged of Yazdanpanah in interviews with some of his daughter’s other classmates.
“She would come to school crying and telling us her dad was crazy,” said Lacie Reed, 18. “He wouldn’t let her wear certain things. He was always taking her phone away, checking her call history and checking her text messages.”
Perfectly normal “doting father” behavior there. Let’s not be judgmental, right?
Friends said Nona’s father had installed cameras all around the home so he could watch the family’s comings and goings. Others said he nailed her bedroom window shut so she could not sneak out at night and see her boyfriend.
Nothing out of the ordin… OK, sorry, we’re not near as good at this whole “nothing to see here” charade whenever the religion of piss is involved as “professional journaljizzers” are.
“She couldn’t date at all until she was a certain age, but when he was going to let her date she couldn’t date anyone outside of their race or religion,” Reed said.
And then she did anyway which, of course, left her “doting father” with no choice but to do the “honorable” thing and murder the entire family.
We’ve got to be tolerant of those things, don’t you know?
Wait! Is that a nativity scene I see over there in front of City Hall? Quick! Call the ACLU and the National Guard! Somebody is trying to establish a theocratic fascist state!
