There are crazy people who kill their families all the time. Christians, Hindus, Druids, whatever. Heck, most murders are committed by someone who knows the victims well.

Those things are indisputably true. It is also indisputably true that Islamic law is unique in giving divine sanction to certain kinds of abuse of women and children.

“Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women).

Reportedly, the girls were murdered due to an “Honor Killing.” Said may have fled to New York or Egypt.

But the intrepid Pamela has noticed that the wanted poster has been revised, and now says this:

Does Islam Justify Honor Killings?

* A better question for these muslim apologists is “What can you use in the koran to stop honor killings?” if in fact, islam doesn’t condone honor killings. So why has islam not been able to stop honor killings? Ask your honor killing neighbors and watch them squirm!

Supna Zaidi, the assistant director of Islamist Watch and daughter of my dear and much-missed friend the late Tashbih Sayyed, considers this question in an article of the same name atPajamas Media (from DW)
