January 2012 Archives

"Honor killings" are rampant in Muslim countries and have been brought to Canada and the United States by Muslim immigrants. Fathers, mothers and siblings can kill daughters who have "dishonored" the family by, for example, un-Islamic dress or being friendly with infidels. It is estimated that Pakistan, for example, has hundreds if not thousands of such honor killings each year in which the killers suffer no punishment.

Honor killings are often not reported by the mainstream media, be it newspapers, radio or TV. If a murder is reported, the term "honor killing" is seldom employed and the fact the killer is a Muslim is rarely mentioned. The vast majority of honor killings worldwide are by Muslims, for whom such killings are culturally acceptable.

A jury in Canada made it clear such killings are murder.
