The young 16-year-old left the house without telling her father. As she reached home, the devout father "started thrashing her, hitting her head and body with a cricket bat and an iron rod."
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). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.
As Robert Spencer notes: "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.' 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). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour 'provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.' And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for

The site where the article appeared should have put this info into the title.
Religion of peace. But everyone from SPLC up to the DOD is absolutely certain that Christians are more dangerous.
Honor killings? What is honorable about beating your teenaged daughter to death?
In Islam, women and children are no better than animals or used grubby furniture.
Ain't that right, Nancy?
Why not include that this is a foreign Air force, not American.
Atlas Shrugs plays a tacky game by misleading people.
Violence is endemic in their culture.
I half suspect these men have a sense that they are entitled to this brutality and they gain some kind of pathological thrill in threatening and carrying out threats against helpless women.
So long as this is the case, they will as individuals and as a society always be emotionally, intellectually and culturally stunted and deformed.
>>>>What is honorable about beating your teenaged daughter to death?<<<<
Well, what if she has blew her virginity at a party? It means she turns into a toxic asset and a father will get her back and be sued down to a last penny by her future husband.
That is how it works it this “culture”:-)
It was such an honorable act he felt he had to first dump the body and then lie about it? These people are not even close to being civilized.
I see only destruction where it is and has been, like a Borg infection that doesn't assimilate, but just destroys.
This is a dream come true for Liberals!
Legal abortion up to the age of 21!!!!
OOPS sorry about that, should have said 26. After all this is the age of Obama.
Dunno - shooting two teenage girls for laughing and dancing in the rain? (couple of days ago).
It’s all acceptable because the father was a DEVOUT Muslim.
I wonder if liberals would complain if he had water-boarded her......
It is my opinion the Left absolutely needs to neutralize that which Christianity stands for just like they have to neutralize that which the Constitution, and the USA stand for in this World. Same reason.
The Left, Marxism, Communism, The New World Order cannot function as the mortal designers of that NWO desire with Christian morality, Christian God given Liberty, Christian Individualism, and the most powerful Nation on this Earth based on Christian ideology in their way.
I believe this is why the evil that backs that which is Obama, and instructs Obama along his way has put so much into this Psycho-war against the USA, and the Christian basis of that existance.
It is the logical direction of the Abortion movement, second generation Abortion. Grandkids a pain in the ass, pop um with a baseball bat and be a good Muslim.
Now, seriously, how different is that from killing a child in its mothers womb?
It isn’t. It is still murder, the question is only when.
Secular America is closer to Islam than Christianity.
A lot closer...
