murdered00The Palestinian foreign ministry Saturday strongly condemned the ‘heinous’ Chapel Hill killing crime which took the lives of three Muslim-American students, including two Palestinian females, at the hands of ‘an extremist American’ in north Carolina.

New York times reported that, President Obama on Friday condemned the killing of three Muslim students in North Carolina as federal investigators said they had begun an inquiry into whether the fatal shooting here on Tuesday night was a hate crime.”

The three student victims were identified by Chapel Hill Police, after notifying relatives of the victims, as Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, of Chapel Hill, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha Barakat, 21, of Chapel Hill, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh. All three were pronounced dead at the scene, each reportedly shot execution style int he head.

Early reports noted two of the victims were married. Deah Shaddy Barakat and Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha Barakat were newly weds just married late last year. Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha is Yusor’s sister.

The young husband, his wife and her sister were found slaughtered in a brutally bloody scene in the heart of the UNC-Duke University college area

caricThe community is wondering if the massacre is the result of a hate crime by a White American with anti-Muslim feelings. Tensions have increased significantly in the past weeks following the reported massacre of the newspaper staff at Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France. The students live in a region served by two universities with large Arab and Muslim populations, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University at Durham. Both universities are within a few miles of each other.

In recent weeks and months, anti-Muslim and anti-Arab Christian leaders, such as evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham, have loudly complained about the growing influence of Muslims in the region of Raleigh-Durham.

The ministry expressed grave concern over this ”terrorism which targets civilians based on their religion, considering it a serious indicator to the growing of terrorism and religious extremism.

The ministry called upon all world countries to condemn this ‘heinous crime’, demanding the opening of a transparent and accurate investigation to clarify the circumstances behind their murder.

The ministry offered its condolences to the family members of the three victims, and to all victims of terrorism.

‘No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship,’ said the president in a written statement published throughout media outlets.

“Obama also confirmed the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] has opened in inquiry into the killings to determine whether federal laws were violated.”
