This is one of the things about shariah/islam that is completely undefendable in my view, there is no excuse for this. There's plenty of things wrong with every religion but this is a particularly evil one, so, stars.

Thanks for saying "in my view" so no one on campus could accuse you of being racist or something.

"undefendable"

Because so many people are trying to defend honor killings, right?

Do you also find puppy kicking inexcusable?

Fucking hell guys, fedex is just voicing an opinion that honour killings fucking suck. Since when did this become Portal of Evil (Nitpicking Lawyers)?

"Because so many people are trying to defend honor killings, right?"

Considering that thousands of women die each year of honor killings, apparently there must be.

Banaz had her entire family, apart from her sister, and the wider cultural community supporting, or at the very minimum not publicly condemning and assisting the investigation of, her murder.

"Although over fifty people had been involved in Banaz’s murder, and although “dozens, if not hundreds,” of Kurds in London knew what had happened to her, “not a single member of the community helped us,” recalls Goode, who states flatly that there was a widespread conspiracy “to pervert the course of justice” by giving false testimony and providing false leads."

Even outside of the honour killing aspect, the shocking testimony Banaz gives the police that is entirely ignored speaks to the wider problem of the lack of real avenues of escape for victims of domestic violence.

I really, really recommend watching this. It's the most horrible thing I've posted since the Colorado City Mormon Polygamy documentary.

SolRo youre a fucking idiot.

I was being facetious. I didn't know this would turn into a thing. Fedex just seemed to couch his comment in cultural sensitivity and pull his punch a bit.

"I don't want to harsh anybody's mellow, man, but honor killings? They're just not for me."

Any belief system that supports these inhuman atrocities needs to be erradicated as quickly as possible. We should have zero tolerance with these lunatics and savages. Who gives a shit what is their god or holy book or whatever, of course this will offend any human being that is not a psychopat.

No, something far more effective, like a new Rocky movie.
