Arizona: Muslim murders his wife and two daughters, says Allah told him to do it “He said that the reason he shot these individuals is because in God’s eyes, it was all right for him to deal with someone in this manner who had been involved in adultery, extramarital affairs.” Apparently Smith was trying to cleanse his family’s honor, which is done by killing the offender. And there will be much, much more of this in America: Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. 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 honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.” Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer. Smith also told police he killed his seven-year-old daughter because she was “weeping for the wicked”. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
