Muslims: More Honor Killing
J. Grant Swank,
Who killed her? Her brother is accused of slaying
Why did he kill her? If it is proven that he did in
fact kill her, it would be to see through the Muslim custom of doing away
with a female who has brought dishonor to the household. Itís known as
Males do away with females who defame the family.
They shoot them. They slice their throats. One way or another, the
offending female must be put out.
And all this happened where? In
It happens elsewhere around the globe wherever there
are those who follow Allahís dictate to get rid of women who are
considered less worthy than house pets. These males who look down on their
women consider them females under a demonic curse from conception.
The males actually believe that these women are ten
exposures of the genitals. When and if the female marries, her husband
expunges one of the curses. But nine still remain.
Therefore, obviously the female hardly stands a
chance for surviving an entire normal expectant lifetime. Somewhere along
the years she is bound to defame the family, even though she is covered
with fabric from head to toe. Nevertheless, if she does not in fact
offend, a male may have an illusion that she offends. Whatever ó she is
done away with.
Sometimes when this occurs, the male then may cling
to the slain female for he has been torn between murdering her and still
loving her as sister or niece or whomever. Itís all insane and yet it
goes on according to Islamic custom. Most of the time in Muslim cultures
it does not make the press. Itís a murder hidden, even from neighbors,
that is, unless Muslim neighbors agree that the woman deserved the
Some Muslims oppose such reporting as this for they
claim that it does not exist. These Muslims who claim that honor killing
does not exist are sheltered Muslims. There are those who are sheltered
from the horrific truth of their own religion. Nevertheless, sheltered or
not, honor killing has existed. Honor killing still exists. Sometimes it
is reported in the Muslim media; other times it is not reported. Reported
or not, it goes on.

Now another female is in fear. That is the foster
mother. She has gone into hiding for fear that her clan in
may seek her death. The crazy situation spreads. This is not the only case
in which the spread has occurred.
"The foster mother is in hiding because she
fears the family in
wants to punish her for giving the victim too much freedom.
"The victim was a non-practicing Muslim and had
a child in 2004 by her non-Muslim boyfriend. She was killed 15 days after
the birth of the baby.
"Her brother had allegedly regularly threatened
the victim, and she had made a complaint to police in November 2004,
shortly before her death," according to Expatica News.
