Iraqi Father Accused Of Running Down "Westernized" Daughter With Car

Police in a Phoenix suburb are looking for a father suspected of using his car to run over his daughter because she was becoming too "Westernized" and was not living according to their traditional Iraqi values.

Police say the 48-year-old man allegedly hit his daughter Tuesday at an Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot in Peoria.

The 20-year-old has been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

A second woman suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police say the two are roommates.

    If that idiot did not want his child 'westernized' he should have kept her abused and mistreated in his own God forsaken country. Give him the death penality. Imagine having that load of crap for a father or any of them for that matter. HORRIBLE.

    I read this story and shook my head before reading the other comments. Wanda, Anon, and Dave... we think alike! I was wondering what the traditional Iraqi values were that she was not upholding... did she not cut someones head off with a kitchen knife? Did she not tie enough TNT around her body? America should WAKE UP and listen to whats going on around us! IRAQI's are running over their children with cars BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO MUCH LIKE US! We must really be bad, ... worse than we think they are anyway! And another thing, WHY are they here ...living in the heartland... if they dislike us so much?? Where is Homeland Security when you need them??

    There are many cases of these incidents with middle eastern people in the U.S. Type in 'middle east family murders daughter' in your browser. They treat their women like crap over there, and it will be the same over here. This is, again, why I say that the Government pushing all the cultures/races/religions on top of one another will not work for all the people. It has never worked, except for a handfull of good civilized people. If you come to America, expect to speak English, pay your own way, and pay for your crimes, American-style.

    If he wanted traditional Iraqi values he should have stayed in Iraq.
