Georgia’s honor killer: “I have done nothing wrong”

with 7 comments

He asked for Islamic food in prison. Yet the press says that he told the police that “he was innocent” and as ever does not mention at all that it was an honor killing:

The price of this politically correct refusal to confront the ugly realities of the Islamic link to honor killing will be, quite simply, more honor killings. No one will call upon Islamic groups to do something about this practice. No special scrutiny will be focused upon Muslims in the United States, or any studies undertaken about how honor killings can be prevented. No one will examine the question of unrestricted Muslim immigration in light of this problem. While learned analysts search for clues in South Asian cultural habits and the practices of European royalty, more young women will be murdered by their Muslim fathers, husbands, and brothers to cleanse their family’s honor. These young women are the ultimate victims of political correctness.

An interesting reflection. For me, it’s even more interesting after reading the behaviour this man had in court:

In court, Rashid made guttural noises and cried. He rocked back and forth and appeared to be talking to himself before the hearing started. Through Farhat, Rashid told Walker he was mourning the loss of his daughter.

My daughter just died and I am not in a state of mind to ask any questions,” he said.

Yes,it was a normal death: it’s normal to die after being strangled. What a moron.

  1. Hmm. He may try the old insanity dodge, but that tends not to play too well.

    “Yes,it was a normal death: it’s normal to die after being strangled. What a moron.”

    Indeed.

  2. Insanity? Possibly after seeing his behaviour at court, but I agree it’s not going to play too well.
    He is not a fool, he is just a moron. Someone who can phone all his family telling them “my daughter has died” after killing her because “he was angry because she wanted to divorce and that would be a disgrace for the family”, is just a moron.

  3. And this is part of the Sharia law that several prominent Brits have claimed would be entirely compatible with and could exist with British law. HA!

  4. Yes, that’s right. But you know, there are people who defend it because people who are entering Sharia Law’s ruling are doing it freely…😦

  5. Yes, freely, with as little compulsion as the extraction of taxes, eh?

  6. Yes, that’s one’s important. But also there is the social compulsion: what would they say (and do) to someone who rejects the application of Sharia Law in those cases?
