Iraqi man runs down daughter in Arizona, an honor killing attempt?

Update October 30th: Father arrested in Atlanta, here.
Update October 29th: Arizona Republic editorial says Muslims must speak out against honor killings.
Sure looks like it! I wonder if these people are among the hundreds of Iraqis being resettled in Arizona—only their resettlement agency knows for sure!
Peoria police are searching for a man they say ran down his 20-year-old daughter in a parking lot for becoming “too ‘westernized’ and … not living according to their traditional Iraq values.”
Noor Faleh Almaleki of Surprise was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. Another woman, Amal Edan Khalaf, 43, of Surprise also was struck and is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Detectives from the Peoria Police Violent Crimes Unit, after talking with family and friends, learned Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, of Glendale was the driver, and that he is the father of Noor Faleh Almaleki. Those interviewed also told police he was with her as she had become too “westernized” and had made threats toward her.
Again, makes my point that many Muslims have no plans to assimilate in America.
