Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. 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."
The video clip illustrates the incompatibility of 1400-years-old Islamic law with the everyday trends of the current world societies. The clip has been made based on the article "Top ten reasons why sharia is bad for all societies" by James Arlandson published in American Thinker journal.

Imagine you were a teenage girl in Pakistan, and your parents married you off very young. The marriage is a disaster but you have no rights. You flee with your daughter to the U.S., you hide out for two years until the detective he hires finds you. In Pakistan, under the Islamic law there, the means of obtaining a divorce is only available to a man, but never of course to a woman. He demands full custody of your daughter. Oh, and he’s accused you of adultery.

" this is not in Islam, no where in the Quran it says that”.
The above is the excuse commonly used by muslim apologists to distance Islam from the horrific practices of its followers; such as the practice of honor killing or female circumcision.
It is a trick that often works well because sometimes it appears to have some truth in it. In the example of female circumcision, indeed there is no reference to such practice in the Quran. However, the Quran doesn’t make any reference to the practice of male circumcision either, which is a mandatory ritual in all sects of Islam.
'I can still see the horror that made me flee Pakistan - in the haunted eyes of girls raised HERE'...
Other girls, unable to resolve the conflict between submitting to a marriage, and essentially being raped by a stranger – not to mention the physical torture and possible murder if they resist – prefer to end their lives.
Aiya Altemeemi, aged 19, suffered a punishment last February that none of her schoolmates in Phoenix, Arizona could have imagined: her father cut her throat with a kitchen knife. When she escaped to her bedroom, her mother and sisters followed, tied her to her bed, taped her mouth shut, and beat her.
