THE DEATH OF A MUSLIM WOMAN
In the past four months, six Muslim women living in Berlin have been brutally murdered by family members. Their crime? Trying to break free and live Western lifestyles. Within their communities, the killers are revered as heroes for preserving their family dignity. How can such a horrific and shockingly archaic practice be flourishing in the heart of Europe?I am a father of two daughters. I told them since they were little girls, that they can do anything, be anything. In America, sex does not matter. Let's congratulate all of the women's organizations that made it happen. Sure, the job is not done, but there are bigger challenges.
NOW, etal, your work is needed elsewhere. It is time to liberate the Muslim women. It is time to liberate women from genital mutilation in Africa. It is time to end the sex slavery in SE Asia. It is time to end these barbaric practices. (hat tip to the Free Republic)
