A Muslim man is beginning a life sentence for murdering his daughter because he disapproved of her Christian boyfriend.
Mohammed Riaz made every conceivable attempt to prevent his wife and daughters enjoying their Westernised lifestyle. He destroyed their clothes - modest by Western standards but tight fitting by his own - when they came out of the wash and he railed against plans to allow alcohol at his terminally ill son's 18th birthday party - which had been brought forward because of his prognosis.
The man, 24, was suspected of having an affair with a married Muslim woman. She has since been warned her life could also be in danger Her alleged lover is fighting for his life after a masked gang stabbed him twice and forced him to swallow sulphuric acid.
maybe the fool is the one who cannot understand an obvious analogy. just because rape exists, it doesn't mean that sex is inherently bad.
I bet you wouldnt say the same thing about the Christians.........since there has been an attack on that religion for how long now? Even so far as to take anything Christian related from their own holidays? No crosses can be displayed without people throwing a fit
they can have their sharia controlled areas,

What you fail to understand is that he did not do those things because he was/is Muslim.

What you fail to understand is that he did not do those things because he was/is Muslim. He did it because he is insane. Easy distinction to make right? Well, going by the quality of that last analogy of yours...I'll just hope you understand the point in THIS post.
*Sigh* I'll try to approach you using your own flawed analogy: People today don't know what sex is because they can only remember being raped.

Beth Din comply with national equalities laws. Sharia does not.
Like Beth Din, Sharia courts operate under the 1996 Arbitration Act. Unlike Beth din, they directly ignore or even contravene national equalities laws.
The manual states (01.1-2) that "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right," except when "a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers)" kills his or her "offspring, or offspring's offspring." Hence, according to this view, a parent who murders his or her son/daughter for the sake of "honor," whether owing to issues of chastity, apostasy and the like, incurs no penalty under Shari'a. This ruling is derived from a hadith (Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Number 4457)
In fact, in 2003, the Jordanian Parliament voted against a bill to introduce harsher legal penalties for honor killings on the grounds that it would violate "religious traditions." Likewise, with regards to the killing of Rand Abdel-Qader, a 17-year-old Iraqi who allegedly loved a British soldier stationed in Basra, by her father, an Iraqi sergeant pointed out that "not much can be done when we have an 'honor killing' case. You are in a Muslim society and women should live under religious laws."
really? did you even read the article? quite awhile prior to the incident, he ripped up their clothes because it was too tight-fitting, but their clothes were very modest.
he killed them then himself because he couldn't stand them becoming westernized.
what about the father that killed his daughter because she was dating a christian boy?
or the man who was stabbed and had acid poured on him because he was suspected of cheating with a married muslim woman?
none of that had anything to do with their beliefs...right.
again, i can only answer for what i believe. with the crusades, nothing about christianity changed, people misused what was already there. the bible.
remember luther's 95 theses? he wasn't pushing to change scripture, but to allow people to read it for themselves. every abuse has stemmed from men.

I think the reason these murders were carried out were because the individuals were either insane or had mental problems or the verge of complete mental breakdown.
The bible didn't pop up during the crusades. In fact, when the crusades started the people who had written the bible and parts of the bible were already long perished.
