Not only does the enemedia cover-up the motive behind these Islamic honor killlings, but they attack those who dare reveal the religion and the culture that sanctions honor violence.
When my organization, AFDI/SIOA, organized the first human rights conference on honor killings, we were widely criticized and demonized by Islamic supremacists and their media lapdogs.
Reliance of the Traveller, a manual of Islamic law that is certified by Al-Azhar University as a translation that “corresponds to the Arabic original and conforms to the practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni Community…”:
In Book O, titled “Justice,” in section 1, “Who is Subject to Retaliation for Injurious Crimes,” section o1.1 reads, “Retaliation is obligatory … against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right…”: However, o1.2 clarifies (above) that “The following are not subject to retaliation” and then lists — after the lovely, egalitarian “Muslim for killing a non-Muslim” and “Jewish or Christian subject … for killing an apostate” — “(4) a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring”:
At least 2,823 people, mainly vulnerable young women, were brutalised in Britain last year by members of their family. But BBC report censors out the key information
All right. I’m not going to make this difficult. The families giving the orders, as well as the victims, are, in the overwhelming majority of cases, Muslim. Surprised? No, of course you’re not. Honour attacks ranging in brutality from beatings to murder are commonplace in many parts of the Muslim world.
Since Britain, like many other European countries, has imported sizeable Muslim communities, which are to a significant degree unassimilated, the cultural practices of the old country have survived the transition to the new.
Finally, the figure of 2,823 attacks is almost certainly a gross under-estimate since, apart from anything else, it is drawn from only 39 of 52 UK police forces.
Got it? In just over 150 words (including title and summary) you now know all the basic information, and as intelligent, informed citizens you can have a discussion on what to do about it. That’s what journalism is for.
