From The New York Post we learn the exciting news that diversity has reached new levels in the US.
ON July 6, police say, a Pakistani named Chaudhry Rashid strangled his 25-year-old daughter San- deela Kanwal with a Bungee cord in her bedroom because she wanted to end her arranged marriage. This "honor killing" came not in Pakistan, but in Jonesboro, Ga. - a suburb 16 miles outside Atlanta.
At his arraignment, Rashid said through an Urdu interpreter [WTF? He can't speak English and he's in the US? But then, English speakers will be a minority there soon, so what harm] "I have done nothing wrong."
And of course, this is the crux of the issue. As Parapundit says “This is nature's way of telling you to keep Muslims out of your country”
His female attorney (always a good idea when the crime is against a woman) explained, "My client is going through a difficult time. As you can imagine, he is distraught." The poor man – it must be very tough.
Commenting on the lack of public outrage, the paper suggests “maybe it's muted because we've grown reluctant to pass judgment on other culture's customs”. Maybe you’re dead right, NYP.
The United Nations estimates that the world sees 5,000 honor killings a year - overwhelmingly in the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, but increasingly among Muslim immigrant communities in Europe. Yes, we have noticed.
Few doubt that other honor killings have occurred behind closed doors. In upstate Monroe County just a few days ago, a girl was stabbed by her brother for wearing immodest western clothing and wanting to move to New York City. According to court documents, Waheed Allah Mohammad explained the stabbing by saying his sister was a "bad Muslim girl."
And bear this in mind, she was a bad Muslim girl. And again, this is the same crux.
Fact is, you have two incompatible world-views. Islam and Western democracy do not, cannot and never will integrate.
