A man in Oklahoma murdered his Christian neighbor, and then justified it by saying that he was a Muslim who needed to die. The victim was a Christian from Lebanon. Here is some news for a lot of people out there: just because some one is Middle Eastern, doesn’t mean they are an Islamic terrorist. I did a whole video on this with my own commentary:
Here is the report:
Khalid Jabara was worried.
Last year, his mother had been jogging through the family’s quiet Tulsa neighborhood when she was nearly killed in a vicious hit-and-run. Police quickly arrested Vernon Majors, who, according to a police report, confessed to the crime and even offered a motive, calling the Jabaras “filthy Lebanese.”
On May 25 of this year, however, Majors bonded out of jail.
That’s when he returned home — right next to the Jabaras.
On Friday, Khalid learned that his next-door neighbor, the man accused of harassing his family and attacking his mother, was now armed.
“Khalid called the police stating this man had a gun and that he was scared for what might happen,” his sister, Victoria Jabara Williams, wrote on Facebook. “The police came and told him there was nothing to be done.”
Minutes later, Khalid was talking on the phone with his family when he stepped outside to get the mail.
Majors was waiting for him, police say.
The 61-year-old opened fire, fatally wounding the 37-year-old Khalid, according to police.
After a bizarre standoff involving bare feet and a six-pack of beer, Majors was arrested. He will be formally charged with first-degree murder as soon as he is released from a hospital later this week, police said in a news release.
“This certainly is a tragedy … but this is not a whodunit,” Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker told The Washington Post, citing one eyewitness account as well as the history of problems between Majors and his Lebanese neighbors.
What is a mystery, at least to the Jabara family, is why Majors was released from jail 10 weeks ago.
“My family lived in fear of this man and his hatred for years,” Victoria Jabara Williams wrote. “Yet in May, not even one year after he ran over our mother and despite our repeated protests, he was released from jail with no conditions on his bond — no ankle monitor, no drug/alcohol testing, nothing.”
“This man was a known danger,” she continued. “Our brother’s death could have been prevented.”
