Honor killings and Islam

From Atlas Shrugs

Pamela Geller sends this along:

Now helping Muslim girls is “racist”: Edmonton Transit has caved in to Islamic supremacist demands and taken down our AFDI bus ads offering help to Muslim girls living in fear of honor killing.

The enemedia is calling our ads “dishonorable” and, above all, “controversial.” It’s “dishonorable” and “controversial” to save lives? Under the Sharia it is. And so in Edmonton, Muslim Councillor Amarjeet Sohi ordered officials to take down the signs immediately.

Yet vicious blood libels against Israel are OK, and are running on transit systems across Canada.

Apparently Muslims complained about our ads. Why?

Is this how the Canadian Muslim community responds to the desperate circumstances of Muslim girls living in devout Muslim homes? They deny, obfuscate and dissemble. The Muslim community protects the religious honor code, while smearing and libeling the truth tellers coming to the aid of these girls as “racists.”

Honor killing is a grim reality that is largely ignored, and girls are suffering as a result. Muslim fathers kill their daughters for real or imagined sexual indiscretions that have supposedly dishonored the family. Nothing is done because political correctness prevents us from speaking about the problem honestly. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide,and Islamic law stipulates no penalty for a parent who kills his child.

These girls need and deserve protection.

AFDI’s new honor killing awareness campaign was designed to help young girls living in fear of the Islamic honor code.

We are not giving up. We are going to challenge their decision in Edmonton, and run the ads elsewhere in Canada. The fact that Islamic supremacist groups are so threatened by these ads shows how desperately they are needed. Clearly we struck a nerve: these Muslim groups don’t want people speaking out against honor killing, and so we have to speak out louder than ever.

Please help us. We have to mount a legal challenge in Edmonton, as well as run the ads elsewhere in Canada. We can’t do it without your help. Remember: what happens in Canada will soon enough happen in the U.S.: Canada is just farther down the same road we are on, the road of appeasement and capitulation to Islamic supremacists.

The pendulum has swung...the question is how far and when will it come back? As a Jewish person who really attempts to be balanced in my views of world events I find this really troubling. Particularly how they play out in a local our fair city too boot. Where is progressive san francisco in all of this. Dead silence.

Yes, it's another massive intellectual failure by SF progressives. Condemning honor killings falls under our fatuous "progressive" definition of multiculturalism, as does condemning Jihadist violence, anti-Semitism, the genital mutilation of young girls, and the successful bullying of the media.
