Northeast Pa. They moved a lot of then in and gave them money to start businesses.

I don't have a problem with that on a human level but it will encourage more of this crap.

Were just enabling drug addicts Mexicans Syrians all these people keep running tk us for help and protesting at our political rally's but they can't do anything for themselves in their home country.

The definition of Honor Killings is: Honor killing or shame killing are the "homicide" of a member of a family by other members, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion. Usually for reasons such as refusing to enter an arranged marriage, being in a relationship that is disapproved of by their family, having sex outside marriage, becoming the victim of rape, dressing in ways which are deemed inappropriate, engaging in non-heterosexual relations or renouncing a faith. This is a discrimination against human nature, how could you murder your mother,father brother or sister because they had been raped ? or enjoyed a quickie on the side? This is a medieval practice, devoid of reason and condemned by society in today's world....

I know all that and by and large agree with what you said....but it's a cultural thing and judging all Muslims the same only serves to detract from addressing the real problem.

Like I said earlier, there was an instance here in the UK where a Chinese family, not Muslims, killed a daughter because they feared she was becoming 'too Westernised' and brought shame upon her family.

It's an all too common practice with some Hindu's who originate from a specific area of the sub-continent.
And it's an all too common practice with some Muslim's who originate from a specific area of the sub-continent.

If all Muslims condoned this practice it wouldn't be illegal in most, if not all, Muslim countries punishable by either imprisonment or in some instances the death penalty.

And it's certainly unacceptable that some immigrants from these areas have transported the practice to their foster nations.

I don't think I can be any clearer than that.

Ok, so you know all that. I live in Asia where "honor murder" happens VERY often, never reported to authorities or police as the locals stay MUM for fear of retaliation from the offending family's and supporters, did you know that?.....

Yes, I know honour killings occur in Asia.

It may indeed be more common than I realise.

But the point is; is it a cultural phenomenon or an act carried out in accordance with Islamic law?

Is it illegal where you live?
What is the punishment if it is illegal?
Do ALL Muslims where you live agree with the principle of honour killing?

Lighten up a bit, stop listening to Behemoth for a start!

Satanism has gotten you a bad attitude and a knee jerk reaction that inst constructive. Maybe think about switching to something less angst ridden.

I used to have the same outlook, aside from the satanism bit.

Anyway, its good to see you expressing yourself, and not being a straight troll

Islamabad (CNN)More than a dozen people have been arrested after a teenage girl was choked, injected with poison, tied to a van and then burned to death.

Police in Abbottabad in Pakistan's northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province said the death was a so-called honor killing ordered by a tribal council after the girl, 16-year-old Ambreen, allegedly helped a neighbor and her boyfriend elope.
"The order came after Ambreen's neighbor, Saima, had eloped with her boyfriend on the 22nd of April," police officer Khurram Rasheed said.
Rasheed said the girl's killing was ordered after a 15 member tribal council, or Jirga, gathered to investigate the elopement.
The couple that eloped has been tracked and is in a safe place, police said. They added that those arrested will be tried in an anti-terrorism court.


There are no words. This is absolutely awful, barbaric and evil in every sense.

Praying for her friends who "eloped" and pray that they do not suffer the same fate.

That's all I got for now bc this is just awful and I don't want to think about it longer than absolutely necessary.

It's considered Sharia law, isn't it? I seem to keep hearing these folks talk about that a lot in the news, etc.

I may be totally wrong about this though. I do not have a strong knowledge of Islam at all.

This is truly awful.. but how can you condem an entire religion for the actions of a few.
These type of people are mo different from those inbred bumpkin people you get in the usa.

If anyone read the actual article it clearly states they have made arrests and are trying these people for their crimes.. Why is this not being taken into account?
I'm sure a lot of followers of Islam will be horrified by this..


You got on OP about generalizing a group of people and them literally the next sentence, generalized a group of people with a thinly veiled slur.

You sir, are a f****** hypocrite.

Besides that business, domestic violence in the US between a family is WORLDS away from a RELIGIOUS (read: Islamic) tribunal convening and deciding a girl who commited a victimless crime was guilty of some sort of religious honor violation and ordering her killed for it.

QUOTE: " I do not have a strong knowledge of Islam". You keep it that way friend, there are more important things to read about and talk about than islam. FYI: Sharia law is a version of islam (there are many branches), more strict and deadly than the conventional version. Sharia islam started in Saudi Arabia and is their official religion, along with country's like Pakistan, Iran and other hard liners. Other muslim countries like Turkey, Malaysia and Indonesia have a more tolerant version of islam. I live in Indonesia (necessary) and i find the religion most difficult to live with....anyway, time for another "coldie" before the loud speakers start their bla-bla. cheers mate....
