Below what the cultural relativists absolutely don’t want you to know, so naturally that’s all we’re going to talk about.
Turkey: official figures on “honor killings”
A total of 43 women lost their lives (17 murdered and 26 committed suicide) in eastern and south-eastern Anatolia alone in the opening two months of this year. These figures appear in the pro-government newspaper, Sabah, which cites as its source Birgul Kitay, the head of the Ka-Mer (Women’s Centre)Women’s Association in Bingol, in this Kurdish majority eastern part of Turkey. The area rose to prominence in news reports a few days ago when a man, who had been given a three-month sentence for beating his wife, six-months into pregnancy with her fifth child, cut off his wifés nose and ears as a punishment for having reported him.
Why and How Islam justifies Honor Killings
Many Muslims deny that honor killings have anything to o with ISlam and that’s it’s just a “cultural” thing. They either know it’s true and are hiding the facts, or are incaable of fathoming their religion sanctioning such horrible acts. The link of Islam to honor killings couldn’t be more clear. We’ve been covering the numerous stories from all over the world where family members are killed by their own to “preserve the family honor”. It’s widely known that the perpetrators of these crimes often get off with minimal punishment and sometimes don’t get charged in the first place. See here for all the IAC reports on honor killings.
Robert from Jihadwatch writes:
“While the practice is not confined to a specific cultural group and has no links to Islam, there is ‘no question,’ Mr. Oppal said, the numbers of honour killings are higher in certain communities.”
No links to Islam? Really?
A manual of Islamic law certified by Al-Azhar as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2).
In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In accord with this, in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”
Ain’t multiculturalism just grand? Gimme some of that good stuff! This is what the Left is shipping in by the boatload in order to achieve their multicultural dystopia. That’s how much they hate mainstream culture and values. Western culture has to be dethroned in order to achieve…what exactly? Social justice? The end of capitalism? Methinks they no longer even know themselves.
