This past week, a Phoenix jury convicted an Iraqi Muslim (not a terrorist) of killing his daughter in 2009 by deliberately running her over with a car. The reason: The 20-year-old college girl refused an arranged marriage, had her own boyfriend and had become too westernized. Question: Why choose to live in a western society if being westernized is so horrible?
Here’s the article:
In 2008, a ‘moderate” Muslim man from Jonesboro, Ga., strangled his own daughter to death in her bed with a bungee cord because she wanted a divorce from an older man who she was forced to marry.
In 2009, a model “moderate” Muslim man, who owned a New York television station meant to portray Islam in a positive light, murdered and beheaded his wife for wanting a divorce. Ironically, he was only convicted of 2nd Degree Murder, though it was clearly premeditated.
In 2008, a “moderate” Muslim shot both his teenage daughters to death for dating non-Muslims. He fled the country and is still at large.
In 2009, a 17 year-old Ohio girl converted to Christianity then fled to Florida seeking asylum, in dire fear of her Muslim father who threatened her with honor killing.
These are some of the atrocities within Muslim families that have made it to news print. How many others do not? In Turkey, it was reported that the incidents of honor killings were rising at such an alarming rate, that they had to think of a way to make it appear otherwise. The answer: Forced suicides. A girl who disgraced the family is made to enter a locked room with no provisions, never to be reopened while she’s alive, and the only objects present are a gun, a rope and a box of poison. One Turkish city is called “Suicide City” because 75 percent of victims are female.
In America ninety-nine percent of the cases, it is the females who are victimized, yet no woman’s group has the courage to come forward and condemn this barbaric practice. One can only imagine how many women, young and old, are living in state of slavery, in fear of death should they want to speak out, refuse an arranged marriage, convert to another religion, or form a relationship outside of Islam. Yes, many Muslim women will claim their love for living as a Muslim, but once they do, what free choices do they have?
Statistics show that at least 5,000 honor killings occur annually, and many more possible that are not reported or disguised as something else, i.e. murder, suicide, accident.
This does not take into account other forms of barbarism toward women in the Islamic world, including mass genital mutilation, beatings (allowed by law), rape, forced marriages, and sheer domination, better known as slavery.
Yet, as Sharia creeps into the U.S., the women’s groups pay no mind and remain eerily silent. And people — like me — who disclose this kind of information, are labeled as “racist” “Intolerant” “Hate mongers.”
