On December 26, 2004 IslamOnline.com reported, "The family of a Palestinian female preacher, who was stabbed to death on December 17 in her Louisiana home in the United States, pointed the finger at religious hatred. Ahmad Jamal Muhanna, the brother of slain Iman, told IslamOnline.net Sunday, December 26, that the grisly killing of his sister showed no sign of forced entry or robbery. An autopsy showed Iman, who was six months pregnant with a girl, was stabbed 33 times in the upper body, and that some of those wounds were defensive. 'Whoever killed Iman did not target her person but her Da`wah activities and Islam,' said Ahmad, who lives in Gaza City."
