Muslim Nebraska Man Attacks Sister with Crowbar Because She is Gay, Says She Shames Family: VIDEO


Lincoln, Nebraska police have arrested Ahmed Tuma and his friend Nathan Marks after they attacked Tuma's sister and her fiancee as they pulled up to their home, KLKN reports:

Police say 20-yr-old Ahmed Tuma was angry with his sister because she is in a relationship with a woman.  Police say Tuma said it is shameful to their family and against Muslim beliefs.

Police say Tuma's sister and her fiancee arrived at home near 27th & M when  he  and a friend, 20-year-old Nathan Marks ran up to them.  Police say Tuma tried to hit her with a crow bar.  The couple escaped into their car, but police say Tuma repeatedly hit the car with the crowbar.

"They were in fear for their lives, he had made some verbal threats to kill the sister," Officer Katie Flood with the Lincoln Police Dept. said.

Police say the couple drove off, but Marks and Tuma got into Marks' pickup and followed, ramming them from behind nearly into oncoming traffic on S. 27th Street. The couple were able to get away and call police.

SisterTuma was charged with attempted 2nd degree assault, criminal mischief, two counts of terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony with hate crime enhancements. Marks was charged with aiding and abetting terroristic threats and aiding and abetting use of a weapon to commit a felony. They'll be arraigned next week.

The victim in the attack told 1011Now that she thinks if her brother succeeded in killing her the rest of the family would likely be very proud of him.

  1. What a lunatic. I'm glad they threw the book at these lunatics with those charges.

  2. No matter the faith, religion is always the problem...

  3. You monsters. Want to see what shame to the family looks like? Just look in the mirror. And the friend--you know he had no religious pov, he just didn't like lesbians (or maybe the sister turned him down).

  4. "Honor killing" should be considered a hate crime.

  6. He may be able to get away with such a crime in a heavily Muslim country but not here buddy. This is a hate crime and you deserve to be put in prison for the next fifty years. Maybe there you're sweet Muslim a** will find the love of a good Christian d*ck.

  7. I can't understand, Muslims are such a peaceful and tolerant people.

  8. Oh look who shames the family and his religion now.

  9. Geez, isn't this infringing on his religious rights?

  10. Religion is destroying the world. I hope they throw the book at this a** h***.

  11. She should move out of state and change her name.

  12. That is some friend, that he would damage his truck that way.

  13. This is why "religious" exemptions are a dangerous thing to be slipping into all manner of laws. There are plenty of religions that condone horrible violence.

  14. All religion is evil, as is proved by those supposedly loving people who hate religions that are not theirs.

  15. @KM Your point is on target. The woman can never expect to be safe again. Her brother failed but other family members will gladly step in and try to do what the brother failed to do. So it is with Islam, a petty, remorseless, vengeful "religion". The world would be a better place without any of the Abrahamic triumvirate, three of the most spiritually decadent, degenerate religions ever.

  16. ah, the religion of PEACE again...

  17. This is not a family it is shameful to call it that, and this is not a brother, it's another Muslim animal. There is no such thing as an honor killing.

  18. Neither of 'em look like their heads are screwed on quite right.

  19. Instead of religious exemptions why not add hate crimes with religion underpinnings what would double the hate crime sentencing automatically. Include in this, the ones who refuse service because of religion (the photographers, florists, bakeries) because they can't get away with it refusing service to Jews or Muslims just gays. Though personally I won't have anything to do with a racist or religious business. I'd leave but point them out in BBB, YELP, etc so it will hurt them in the best of places, their pocket books.

  20. what some claim to do in the name of religion - sounds like an excuse or a lame attempt to justify his own bigotry by twisting his faith.

    religion should be regulated and taxed.

  21. I get the hate crime charges, obviously, but why "terroristic" threats? If a "Christian" came at his sister with a crowbar and tried to ram her off the road, would that also be a "terroristic" threat?

    Posted by: Graphicjack | Nov 10, 2013 2:42:29 PM

  22. @Graphicjack: I was wondering the same thing. Both deserve to be charged with serious crimes, but I don't get the "terrorist threat" part as Tuma picked the victim due to a personal relationship (a family one) and Marks was simply helping his friend commit a crime.

    I suspect some anti-Muslim bias - gay bashers in general don't get charged with terrorism, even though they pick their victims at random and terrorize particularly neighborhoods. If there are terrorism charges in this case, why aren't there terrorism charges in all the others?

    I do think the hate crime charges are appropriate, and that both of these morons deserve to spend a very long time in prison, based on the account of what happened.

  23. These guys are sorta hawt, even the darker one. I like the rough kind of guys. He could have used that crowbar on me wink, wink!

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Nov 10, 2013 3:12:36 PM

  24. 100% agree with Bill above. This seems to sensationalize the "Muslim" aspect when really this is a hate crime. And what's Marks excuse? -- I see no mention of his religion.

  25. Graphicjack: Maybe they say something when the police arrested them, because otherwise it doesn't have any sense
