Another ‘honor killing’

12 06 2007

Associated Press: LONDON – A father who ordered his daughter brutally slain for falling in love with the wrong man in a so-called “honor killing” was found guilty of murder on Monday.

Banaz Mahmod, 20, was strangled with a boot lace, stuffed into a suitcase and buried in a back garden.

Her death is the latest in an increasing trend of such killings in Britain, home to some 1.8 million Muslims. More than 100 homicides are under investigation as potential “honor killings.”

As a father it sickens me to know that there are cultures that condone and encourage the slaughter of one’s own family for the sake of honor. As a Christian it reinforces the profound and unmistakable differences between the followers of Jesus and the followers of Mohammad. As an American it constitutes a clear and present danger that cannot be ignored for the sake of political correctness.
