Muslim Beats His Sister to Death with Hammer, Sets Fire to Her Body, ‘Victim’s modern lifestyle didn’t sit well with the family’

ByPamela Geller on February 11, 2016

Unimaginable inhumanity and misogyny. What’s worse is listening Gloria Steinem arguing with Bill Maher, defending Muhammad and the sharia.

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case, of course, the victim was the murderer’s wife, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.

Arab man ‘bludgeoned sister to death with hammer’
In honor killing, Hussein Rahal, 22, allegedly then set fire to the body of Ranin, 19

The brother of an Arab woman who was beaten to death with a hammer and set on fire in northern Israel was arrested last month on suspicion of murdering his sister in an honor killing.

Details of the case were under gag order until Thursday evening.

Hussein Yussuf Rahal, 22, of Bayt Zarzir was arrested on suspicion of murdering his 19-year-old sister Ranin. According to details of the investigation released by police, on the night of January 12, Rahal allegedly kidnapped Ranin from a village outside the Galilean city of Nazareth, drove her to a forest nearby and bludgeoned her to death with a hammer before setting her body on fire.

Her remains were found in a forest near Kibbutz Hanaton, a few miles away, the next day. Rahal was arrested five days later, on January 17, and hasn’t cooperated with investigators since.

Police officials told Channel 10 that the motive for the murder was believed to be family honor.

“The investigation found that the victim’s modern lifestyle didn’t sit well with the family,” a police official said. “The brother didn’t love that she wore modern clothes and left the house to live alone.”

The police added that he had tried to kill her in the past. Last August he attempted to run Ranin over, injured her, and was brought to trial, Channel 10 said.

Maariv reported, by contrast, that while charges were filed against him, he wasn’t located by the authorities.

Rahal is to be charged with murder and kidnapping with intent to murder at the Nazareth District Court on Sunday.

    Let punishment suit the crime, take the hammer he used to kill his sister with, and give him the same number of hits on the head by a person of his strength. Feed the caracas to pigs.

    • roger

      You’re not being fair, you have to run over him first.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        O all right, let it never be said that I was unfair and unreasonable.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I’d volunteer for that — I’d have to get out my mechanic’s overalls to do it though. All I would have to do is hit him once.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        What ever it takes, suspect if that was to happen, there would be a vey long line of volunteers to whack him.

    Just to express myself, I want revenge for this. Not that I would do anything. It’s just that this is beyond horror. This is WAR.

    Cold as ice, no love for family or others. Just murder, rape all they know.
    When will the females kill the males to know they will have some sort of freedom

    • Mr Paul Middleton

      I’m assured by an infidel friend who is possibly the most prominent and knowledgeable female infidel on YouTube, that female Muslims are the worst (absolute cows she calls them) utterly unashamed about Islam’s fascist nature. As usual with Islam, it isn’t what you might suppose.

      • knight

        There are many sick and twisted people throughout history with atrocities on all sides. The biggest number of crimes by Muslims would outnumber all other atrocities, and those raped taken slaves.Even with WW1 and 2, Muslims doing atrocities alongside Nazis and one section of the Catholics.

        Probably the worst is how the Catholic Church protects nuns, priest that ran concentration camps, with Muslims and supported them even the Magdalene Asylums. We never hear much about the Ustaše ran concentration camps said to be worse than Auschwitz. Then the Inquisition to rid the non- Catholics, with wonderful range of horrid death toys, that lasted for a few centuries.

        Yes females can be worse than males, sicker than males, Turning human skin in all sorts of ornaments, and list goes on.

        We listen to a guard 94 faces court for Auschwitz, but there are many that escape trial, from many concentration camps about 20,000 in one form or another, and we mostly bring them from Auschwitz for trial, but not from the many others. Worst was Ratlines and Operation Paperclip allowed thousands escape trial and set them up as spies and in governments, businesses, even as Secretary General of UN, a intelligence office working alongside the Ustasse.

        We have the Rape of NanJing (King), every Japanese soldier raped, brutally killed, besides the special units, and more than one, the worst Unit 731. People should read up on Unit 731 to find out the Japanese were going to do to USA, September 1945. Fortunately the A-bombs stopped the Japanese.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          None of the nazis that escaped to muslim states were ever brought to justice.

          • knight

            No they never, many taking on Muslim names and training terrorist.

            Have a listen to Operation Paper Clip and how USA use Nazis for spies, also putting many others into important positions. Nazis set up also with Russians building their network while feeding back only 20% information

            You do not see the big picture. We are already controlled, and why we have Muslim refugees in mass.
            Nazism, Islam, big business, big names, and sections of the Catholic Church have made it happen.

          • Mr Paul Middleton

            Merkel made Muslim refugees happen. Almost singlehandedly.

          • imwithstoopid

            Or certain South American countries.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I had thought at least two famous nazis were dragged out of S. America to face justice. The fact is not one nazi has ever been brought to justice out of the islamic world.

      • mtmla

        I saw a video on the , a muslima lying about islam and debating Nonie Darwish, who calls a spade a spade, and another video the same woman trying to lie about islam and debating Mark Christian an ex Egyptian iman who knows arabic, as Nonie does, and knows islam. The muslima is a lawyer and has infiltrated the gov.

    Christ forgive our for our extreme anger and violence we continue to feel against these nothings as they do not know how to be human.

    Strengthen us so we know how to be strong and fight in your name. We need you Christ and I and many others know what sacrifice you did for our freedom. Help us to educate the many that continue to help them.

    • drummie

      If you believe in the Christian idea of Just War why are we not doing something to stop Islam? When the cost of not going to war to stop a grave injustice to mankind exceeds the human cost of going to war, isn’t going to war justified? Turning the other cheek is a personal thing. Stopping evil on such a large scale requires Christian soldiers ready to stop the evil. You can negotiate with a country, you can negotiate in business. You can not negotiate with an irrational and dangerous ideology. It will kill you while you try to talk to it. You can educate the uneducated, you can medicate the crazy but you can’t fix stupid. Not stopping Islam with whatever force is necessary is stupid, they will kill you if we don not stop them. Islam is evil personified, as is shown in this article.

    • Meenuspeenus

      Amen, brother. Amen

  • roger

    You know, this stinks, he tried to kill her in August by running over her and injuring her but then nothing is done and five months later he killed her.
    Why wasn’t he charged with attempted murder and locked up then ?
    Surely some persuasion can now be used in order for him to “cooperate” with police.

    • mtmla

      Maybe even the law in Israel sees it as ok for a brother to run over a sister who is rebellious…why was this man set free only after 5 months..knowing the nature of the beast… Or maybe yet, it’s killing 2 birds with a stone…She died , and didn’t produce little jihadists…now he’ll go to jail for murder..maybe that way many future jihadis were prevented from coming to existence, by her and by him..Maybe honor killing is not that bad, looking at it through this prysm…

      • roger

        I think that the problem in Israel is that the Police is following far left policy as they do in Germany, I believe that the police is the subject of many complaints because of this.

    These are middle eastern tribal societies, Do you remember how Yazidi crowd stonned a yazidi girl because she dated a Sunni boy ?

    • Apothis

      No I do not remember that and would be highly skeptical that it is true.
      Do you have a link?

      • mjazzguitar

        I did a quick search and it’s there.

          • Just a citizen

            Azedi’s are also a weird lot. Many, not all girls rap*d by ISIS and sent home were often rejected as ” defiled” I read somewhere in horror. This was part of the humiliation by ISIS aware of this.Their religion is a mixture of Islam and paganism

          • mtmla

            They all come from the same area… I’m sure a lot of sameness permeates through the different tribes…

        • Lonnie Robinson

          To the nazi and you it was the sunni muslims uncle who had the yazidi woman stoned to death. So you’re a lier or just plain stupid like like the ‘mon sewer’ nazi above.

          • mjazzguitar

            I don’t know why you are getting all bent out of shape, calling me a “lier” (sic) and “stupid”, just because I did a quick search that verified that that story was, indeed, out there.
            In fact, I wasn’t even talking to you; I was replying to Apothis.
            Do you have a link to a story that says the sunnis did it? I can’t find one.

      • Lonnie Robinson

        Nope! He just made it up. Like mentally ill liberals do. probably is off his meds.

      Yazidis don’t stone their people. So like most liberals… you’re a lier.

    • CC

      Misogyny is common throughout the middle east, even among Coptic and Chaldean Christians, but Muslims are commit 91% of all the honor killings in the world.

  • drummie

    Of course being a pawn of the “religion of peace” certainly couldn’t have influenced this, I mean they are peaceful. Total idiocy on the part of any reasonable and freedom loving person. Normal people do not kill because of clothes or choosing to live away from home. By no religion does he have the “right” to kill like this. Of course Islam is a death cult run by domination and intimidation. It must be really a good thing if you have to threaten people with death if they leave your cult. It is more of a mind and body control political system run by lunatics that follow the lead of a child molester and pervert called Muhammed. When will liberals wake up to fact and see what is being done? If this happened in the US and the perpetrator was not a liberal, the left including all the feminists would be screaming about being conservative turns you into a murderous monster, but Islam has nothing to do with this case. The folks supporting Islam and Sharia are being willfully blind and ignorant cowards. This started with Muhammed who was a not to great military general and has never stopped. Look back on world history and you will find that Islam has caused the mass killing of anyone not being one of them on a vast scale, much more that any other group. Islam has been at war with civilized society since its inception. As for Obama and his whinning about how much Islam has contributed, he needs to open his blind eyes as well. Islam has not offered anything positive that was not already being taught by Judeo-Christian beliefs. All it has accomplished is muder, disfigurement, control and domination by force. A true religion does not need to use force to keep members, therefore, Islam is NOT a religion.

    – Although I still get upset by these stories, I no longer think that the West should be interfering in these societies. It is the responsibility of the more enlightened among them to change their own societies.
    – What we can do is stop importing these people and such practices into our societies while claiming “all cultures are equal”.

    • All cultures are, apparently, not equal. Nothing can be equal if it demands all to tolerate it but, it tolerates nothing but itself.

  • Michael

    Yeah, the religion of peace, as Obama puts it.

    Use the hammer on his private parts, maybe he will get the idea we don’t tolerate that garbage here. But, I doubt it. Feed him ham sandwiches in prison, where he belongs.

  • Beach_Road_Mauler

    Liberals are falling all over themselves to invite this disease among us. The sheer insanity associated with this cult beggars the imagination. They simply do not belong in a modern western society. They do not assimilate as proven in France and Sweden. And their views toward women are prehistoric. Bringing them in creates a public safety issue for women as demonstrated in Cologne and other European areas. God protect us from liberals.

    • mtmla

      The muslim invasion of the west is like the invasion of the asian reticular python in Florida. The python does not belong here and if left unchecked it will destroy the native species.

    Why hasn’t Israel banned hammers, she needed to carry a gun and protect herself. Everyone needs to take self protection seriously, the Bible says in the end times brother against brother (sister), Parents against kids, etc.
    The people throughout the world need to revolt against these laws that strip us of out right to self protection.
    And if the cops/politicians are against it they are against us. There either for us / or against us.

    I hope Ysrael doesn’t go soft on this jihadi ape, I hope justice is served for the sister he killed. I’d say my condolences to the family, but they were probably complicit in it.

    Will this story be in the newspapers or radio or tv? Of course not. Because they are Muslims they can get away with murder and the world stays silent.

    I give this girl credit it could not have been easy but at least she tried to be free.

    What kind of a monster murders his own sister so brutally with a hammer. Islam is sick and evil and it creates monsters.

  • billwhit

    And these sick Pigs of Satan/Allah actually think there is “honor” in murdering your child? That shows how sick and perverted Islam is and proof that Allah is nothing more than Satan himself!
