None of which have a thing to do with culture-sanctioned honor killings, and you know it.
Except here it isn't culturally accepted behavior.

The way that it was settled was the woman had to place her tongue on the back of a hot spoon ladle held in coals to get hot or a second or so. If her tongue got burned she was guilty if it didn't she was innocent. Makes perfect sense doesn't it? It did to them.

Btw the woman didn't get her tongue burned so she was found not guilty.

It's not a murder. It's what comes naturally to them. Their alternative view of morality is that it is perfectly OK to murder helpless people. Your own daughter is fair game as are people in tall buildings and on airplanes. It's just a way of living and thinking that is equally as valid as our boring culture of work and school.

It's Islam ( a seventh century religion that is forbidden to update via Koranic command ) combined with third world culture. Truly must suck to be female over there. I read a story about schoolgirls that were forced back into their burning schoolhouse because they weren't properly garbed when the fire broke out. Many died or were maimed. Good times being a woman over there.

And just think, for feminists in the west their greatest concerns are having "safe spaces" for college and trigger warnings for the most inane thing while simultaneously making bank off the suffering of other women. Western feminists are a complete and utter joke and I don't call myself a feminist.

I repped this post since you absolutely nailed this. If this were Politics and Other Controversies I'd have more to say but the hypocrisy of many is quite glaring. The Left supports Islamists even though the LGBT community and transexuals would not do very well in these areas.

But they happily gang up against Israel which is probably the only country in the Middle East where women have the same rights as anywhere in the Western World.

The Left are a peculiar bunch.

That isn't radical islam.

It's mainstream islam.

EVERY islamic country is about 100 years behind the US in terms of civil rights.

We can argue if they should be but not where they actually are.
