    Aside from that, I've got a fairly good understanding of the subject, at least enough so that a new thread on each and every instance isn't going to teach me anything. I'm sure there are many others on this forum who fall into the same category, in terms of familiarity with the subject.

    How about beating the drums on a new subject for a change?
    No thanks I think I'll stick with this subject. I suggest you ignore my posts since you allready know everything there is to know about honour killings and human rights abuses......take a hike!

    What, and miss all the fun, especially when people talk about honor killings as if they were an invention of Islam, rather than a tribal thing that predate the religion entirely?

    Not a chance.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Explain something to me TED, why do so many of the perpetrators of honour killings claim they killed there family member for being a bad muslim, Sikh, or hindu? Also many of them claim they killed because of there religion. I can sight examples if you like. Are you telling me that you have a better understanding of their religion then they do?

    I'm telling you that in Islam, just like in Christianity, there are passages in the holy scriptures which can be interpreted to justify violence, as are there passages in the holy scriptures which can be used to condemn violence.

    As I've said previously, the practice of religion is shaped heavily by the culture in which it flourishes. It is that culture which prompts this kind of thinking about the religion, not the religion which prompts this kind of thinking about the culture.

    I hope you do stick with it Sgt. Most Westerners either have no idea of the scope of the problem or they consider it a taboo subject because it exposes the seamy underside of Islam. In one notorius case in Israel, 6 Muslim females from one family were murdered (honor-killings) before other terrified female family members finally agreed to cooperate with the police.

    I think you will find that even in Pakistan there has already been a female leader (Benazir Bhutto) and that there are already female CEO's of companies.

    I'm not defending Pakistan, certainly it's no real "ally" as some on this forum believe it to be in the war in Afghanistan - and female leaders have been shot either for running for Prime Minister (Bhutto) or Zilla Huma Usman (female minister in govt 2006) for refusing to wear a veil and being a female rights activist. However, it is right that SgtRock posts these stories - I would like to also see more stories about women like Zilla Huma Usman too however - facing Islamic extremists in her own country is a brave thing to do and something she paid for with her life.

    What is the 'honor' in killing your own family members? That is something I do not understand. I mean you have to be pretty messed up in the head to believe your God would want you to kill your daughter because her head wasn't properly covered.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    There was a time when Christians were known to commit similar acts in the name of religion. How did that stop?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I hope with all my might that when my precious grand daughter reaches adulthood the same can be said. Except, without the word "almost."

    Ya think?

    I have said it until I'm blue in the face. Middle Eastern traditions are Venus and western traditions is Mars. More than poles apart. They are world's apart.

    But, I'm a live and live kinda guy. And I'm for the "melting pot" philosophy that has made our wonderfully diverse nation what it is today. However, just as some metals should never be smelted together, neither should various cultures.

    Why can't everybody just stay on their own side of the world?
