Thanks to the Tundra Tabloids:
The real problem here is not that Jordans media darling, Oprah friend Queen Rania, denies and lies; that is to be expected. The scandal is that Islamo=propagandist Christiane Ammanpour deliberately spreads falsehood and nonsense. Â She should be called out on this, and exposed as the overrated crock & schlock journo that she is.
Ammanwhore gets schmoozed by the Queen of Jordan

Now wait a minute: the mainstream media has told us, whenever an honor killing has taken place in North America or Europe, that honor killing is a cultural practice that has nothing to do with Islam â€” despite the fact that Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. What’s more, a manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, 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. Nonetheless, the media drumbeat is constant: honor killings have nothing to do with Islam. And so if honor killings have nothing to do with Islam, why should Â Muslim Women think that a law against honor killing have anything to do with them?
Stephanie has done good work on these hideous ‘honor’ murders:
