Multiple honor killings in Canada: "God's curse on them for generations. May the devil ... (expletive) on their graves ... They betrayed Islam." - Jihad Watch
While Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is still not covered under the Canadian health care system, we progressives are hopeful that this will soon be changed. This is, after all, 2011 and we are all living in a fantastic and exciting multicultural world where Islamic traditions must be respected and honored. It's just the liberal thing to do.
Who are these "whole lot of people including clerical leaders" in the US that believe it's the right thing to do? One? Two? Three morons? What percentage of the 8 Million American Muslims are you suggesting support something like that? Do you have anything to back up your statement?
Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
We do now that American Muslims do have some strange opinions and beliefs so a survey on their attitudes toward honor killings could make for interesting reading.

Oh...I could post dozens of Youtube videos showing violent diatribes by American Muslims...but you would just poo poo them as not being representative of ALL...to which I would agree. I could post videos of Muslim terror training camps in America, but again...you would just dismiss them as the fringe and not ALL Muslims to which again, I would AGREE. I could point out the leaders and membership of the Nation of Islam and pose a query as to your thoughts on their allegiance. Like Muslims worldwide, the MAJORITY are peaceful...but its that distinct minority that think it is glorious to rape and behead 12 year old schoolgirls in India or rape and torture to death families in Tibet that always cause the problem.
And since you are pointing out majorities...what percentage of Saudis do you think are fundamentalist Muslims, and how many are third country nationals not at all affiliated with Muslims? How many are businessmen that follow the faith because if they dont they get beat down by religious police with orange beards and bamboo canes? How many are members of the Saudi royal family that only go along with the religious fundamentalists to maintain power and balance in SA? How many are Bedouins, similarly managing tenuous relations with fundamentalist extremists?
