Here is yet another horrific example of the deep rooted tradition of Muslim honor killings. A member of the Pakistani Parliament went on record in this brief article as saying: "these are centuries-old traditions and I will continue to defend them”.
Many would have us believe that radical Islam is an aberrant tradition within the larger, peaceful religion. This is false. Radical Islam is in fact true to the teachings of the Qur'an.
I am not arguing that Islam teaches honor killing, but only that honor killings do not seem to be inconsistent with the teachings or the spirit of Islam.
