Video: With the Islamists’ Rise to Power, Turkey Became the World’s Leading Hotspot of Honour Killings

Islam Watch 11 April 2012
By M. A. Khan

To educated Muslims, honor killing has nothing to do with Islam and Turkey is the only "role model" Islamic country, because in all other Muslim countries, honor killing occurs. Unfortunately, after the Islamists came to power in 2002 and opened the gates of gradual Islamization of Turkey, after 8 decades of strict secular rule, Turkey has risen to be the world's "number one honor killing country", with a killing rate 5 times higher than that of Pakistan, known to be notorious for honor killing.

Atlas Shrugs 2 April 2012
By Pamela Geller

The horror of these young girls -- terror-stricken victims, who live in homemade concentration camps -- is given the imprimatur of the West in its complicit silence. The media goes to extraordinary lengths to whitewash these crimes and disconnect the motive for these murders. The West looks away as more and more girls fall victim to the sharia in the West.

Honor Killings Grow in the West: Islam’s Gruesome Gallery

FrontPage Magazine 27 March 2012

As Islamic honor killings continue to rise in the West and on U.S. territory, our media and higher literary culture remain completely silent about them.

While our own president gets personally involved in the Trayvon Martin case, joining the race hustlers that have set out to convict George Zimmerman based on narrative, not evidence, the world is waiting for him to breathe one word on behalf of Islamic honor killings victims.

A Muslim Love Story

FrontPage Magazine 15 February 2012
By Daniel Greenfield

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet concludes with the words, "For never was a story of more woe, Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” Fortunately for him, Shakespeare had never paid a visit to Pakistan where all love stories end in woe and young lovers tend to die not in overwrought murder-suicide pacts, but in Karo-Kari honor killings by their own families. The Muslim versions of the Montagues and Capulets don’t drag their children home and berate them; they hold a session and decide that they should die.

The Mistreatment of Women in Muslim Countries

Family Security Matters 7 February 2012
By Shari Goodman

In examining the attitude of men towards women in Islamic culture it is important for readers to note that Islamic culture is derived from the Quran and codified into law by Sharia which is the civil code for the Quran. It codifies into law every aspect and action of a practicing Muslim's life. Within Islam, there can be no other law that supercedes Quranic doctrine;
