How to cure the honour killings ‘cancer’

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

What more can I say, that my friend Tarek who provides me  with a lot of info for my Op/Ed pieces, says it all. Way to go Tarek. 
One can only imagine what the Left's non comments to stories like this are doing? Perhaps having their enema bags cleaned, Tofu is a Bitch to clean., all sticky with no substance.

How to cure the honour killings ‘cancer’

Almost as soon as news broke that the murders of three Afghan-Canadian teenage sisters and their father's first wife in Kingston, Ont., were possible "honour killings," some in the Muslim community reacted in the most predictable fashion: defensiveness and denial.

Instead of voicing outrage at the murders, two Muslim callers to my CFRB radio show in Toronto slammed me for raising the subject, and suggested I had some hidden agenda. "This has nothing to do with Islam," said one caller, despite the fact no one on the show had, to that point, even mentioned the word "Islam," let alone accused the religion of sanctioning honour killings.

The callers were not alone. The head of the Canadian branch of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) told the CBC more or less the same thing - that the story was unrelated to Islam, which apparently does not permit honour killings.
