The issue of Islam is one where liberals have reached peak insanity. They’re all for liberal values…. except for when those very same liberal values are infringed by Muslims. When’s the last time you heard a liberal express concern for the rights of women, gays, and other misc. minority groups they claim to champion in the Muslim world? Never.
The prime minister of Canada Justin Trudeau even went as far as to take issue with how we discuss “honor killings,” which are all too common in the Muslim world. Such killings occur when a family member kills another family member for having brought “shame of dishonor” upon the family, for doing things such as refusing an arranged marriage, being in a relationship disapproved of by the family, having sex outside of marriage, being a victim of rape, dressing in ways deemed “inappropriate,” or renouncing Islam. When he was the liberal MP of Canada back in 2011, Trudeau said the government should not call honour killings “barbaric” in a study guide for would-be Canadian citizens.
That’s what we’re up against….
Such honor killings number over 20,000 a year, and yes, they are barbaric. As Pamela Geller reported regarding one of the most recent cases to make headlines:
Mary Shipstone, an innocent 7 year old girl was murdered in cold blood by her father – the one man in the world to whom she should have always been able to turn for protection. But that is not how Islam works. Her mother, a Roman Catholic had converted to Islam when she married Yasser Alromisse, but later rejected the faith. This led to a bitter custody battle.
A lawyer’s blunder led to the father being given his estranged wife’s address. Mary’s fate was then sealed – she was gunned down in front of her mother at her home near Rye on the South coast of England.
Western girls must realize that the rules and social mores change completely once they marry into Islam. Mary’s mother has learned this at a terrible price – the loss of her beloved daughter.
This Muslim migrant was just being a good Muslim by refusing to allow an apostate from Islam to live – certainly not any that he sired. He allowed the mother of the murdered child to live so she could live with her pain and agony. Who says Muslims aren’t tolerant?
The death penalty for leaving Islam isn’t a fringe idea – it’s in Islamic Law. In the Middle East and North Africa, 90 percent of the regions within criminalize blasphemy. It’s not just Muslim leaders pushing through that penalty – it’s widely supported by the public. In Egypt and Pakistan for instance, 88% and 62% of Muslims respectively, support killing those who leave Islam.
No wonder it’s the world’s fastest growing religion, when they’re adopted a “Hotel California” policy when it comes to leaving.
