It's a shame that they were pressured into withdrawing the honor. She richly deserves it for the work that she's done.
And absence of "our laws" (or the "rule of law" in the West more generally) is the operative concept.

Agreed.What IS happening (in further demo of the "nihilistic death cult" beyond killing apostates, adulterers, gays, etc), Is the Persecution, Cleansing, and Killing of Non-Muslims and Muslims of other sects WORLDWIDE.

Many people are persecuted, cleansed, or die Every day in the Name of Islam.
And many people are persecuted, cleansed, or die every day in the name of plenty other than Islam.
Persecution, cleansing, or killing in the name of Christianity is another big culprit.
Nonsense, and, nonsense.Bush was an apologist for Islam, as are many in government necessarily.
They can't tell the truth, that these 'Extremist' muslims are in fact not perverting the religion at all.

For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
