Help girls living in fear of Islamic honor code
Exclusive: Pamela Geller sheds light on horrific murders sanctioned by Shariah law
Now helping Muslim girls is “racist”: Edmonton Transit has caved in to Islamic supremacist demands and taken down our AFDI bus ads offering help to Muslim girls living in fear of honor killing.
The enemedia in Canada is calling our ads “dishonorable,” “controversial” and, above all, “racist.” It’s “dishonorable” and “controversial” and “racist” to save lives? Under the Shariah it is. And so in Edmonton, Sikh Councillor Amarjeet Sohi, who should know better than to carry water for the Islamic supremacists who oppressed his people for centuries, ordered officials to take down the signs, immediately.
Yet vicious blood libels against Israel are OK and are running on transit systems across Canada.
Apparently Muslims complained about our ads. Why?
Is this how the Canadian Muslim community responds to the desperate circumstances of Muslim girls living in devout Muslim homes? They deny, obfuscate and dissemble. The Muslim community protects the religious honor code, while smearing and libeling the truth tellers coming to the aid of these girls as “racists.”
Honor killing is a grim reality that is largely ignored, and girls are suffering as a result. Muslim fathers kill their daughters for real or imagined sexual indiscretions that have supposedly dishonored the family. Nothing is done because political correctness prevents us from speaking about the problem honestly. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide,and Islamic law stipulates no penalty for a parent who kills his child.
Honor violence, honor murder, is not just a tribal custom; it’s Islamic law. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). This is effectively saying that a Muslim father who kills his child for “honor” faces no legal penalty under Islamic law.
Robert Spencer argues: “Why does it matter that the practice of honor killing has Islamic sanction? Because if the roots of honor killing are never discussed and always ignored, the practice will never stop. Until the Islamic roots of the practice are discussed openly and human rights groups begin calling for reform, honor killings will continue in the Islamic world – and in Muslim communities in the West.”
These girls need and deserve protection. The horror of honor killings is given the imprimatur of the West by the enemedia’s complicit silence and the government’s unwillingness to say a critical word about Shariah, no matter how savagely it is applied anywhere in the world. The media goes to extraordinary lengths to whitewash these crimes and disconnect the Islamic motive from these murders. The “feminists” look away and pretend that it is outside the realm of women’s rights. They are shills for Islam. Shame on all of you for failing women, children and girls worldwide.
AFDI’s new honor-killing awareness campaign was designed to help young girls living in fear of the Islamic honor code.
We are not giving up. We are going to challenge their decision in Edmonton, and run the ads elsewhere in Canada. The fact that Islamic supremacist groups are so threatened by these ads shows how desperately they are needed. Clearly we struck a nerve: These Muslim groups don’t want people speaking out against honor killing, and so we have to speak out louder than ever.
Please help us. We have to make a stand. Please donate via Paypal. The American Freedom Defense Initiative is a 501c3 organization, and your contribution is tax deductible.
We have to mount a legal challenge in Edmonton, as well as run the ads elsewhere in Canada. We can’t do it without your help. Remember: What happens in Canada will soon enough happen in the U.S.: Canada is just farther down the same road we are on, the road of appeasement and capitulation to Islamic supremacists.
