Shaima Alawadi: A victim of hate crime?

If the facts of this case are being reported accurately, this crime is deplorable. (see link of new article http://news.yahoo.com/fbi-assisting-murder-investigation-iraqi-woman-043721673.html) The ultimate question in this case, just as the daughter of Shaima Alawadi has asked, is “WHY?”  Why would anyone attack a housewife and mother of five so brutally and leave her to die?

The Alawadi family is from Iraq and lives in EL Cajon, California.  They are one of several thousands of families who live in this area. Hopefully the involvement of the FBI will help this family and community find some answers to this sad and “Un-American” tragedy.
