Gunman Dressed As Santa Kills 7 In Texas
December 27, 2011
An estranged father and husband dressed as Santa killed two families on Christmas morning after their opened presents.
Aziz Yazdanpanah, who separated from his wife in March, allegedly killed seven people including his wife and two children, before turning the gun on himself at an apartment in Grapevine, Dallas. The family had recently declared bankruptcy.
Investigators with the Grapevine (Texas) Police Department recovered two pistols from a crime scene described as gruesome by Sgt. Robert Eberling. The deaths are the "worst outbreak of gun violence" in the town's history, he added.

The report is dishonest because it ignores the central aspect that the killer was a Muslim and the massacre was an "honor killing." The precipitating event was that his teenage daughter had the temerity to date non-Muslims, his severe punishment of her and restrictions (such as nailing her window shot) were not successful; and to him as a Muslim her dating outside the face shamed him and he had to kill her and the rest of the family to regain his "honor."
Many Jihadist attacks and "honor killings" are misleadingly reported by the media, which avoids showing Islam or Muslims in anything but a flattering way.

@Jason Sgt. Eberling just told POLICE that there's no evidence to indicate this was an honor killing. Investigators did consider that possibility.
