On the same day, i.e. on October 19, 2009, a Jordanian man was arrested for stabbing his 22-year-old daughter to death because she became pregnant outside wedlock. On the previous day, the father and his brother took the girl to a doctor because she suffered from stomach pains, and everybody was surprised to learn that she was six months pregnant. On their way home, the father stabbed the girl with a sword 25 times in her stomach, killing her immediately as well as her unborn baby boy. The source said the suspect has confessed to the crime following the murder, which took place in the Jordan Valley . His brother was also charged with premeditated murder, while the victim's boyfriend is being held in custody for his own protection.

I admit my ignorance on this whole Sharia Law thing, but what happens here in the west when you have people who believe their "laws or god" transcends the laws of our lands and their obligation is FIRST to their religion or religious laws?
