Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! Muslim polygamy “honour” murders

The first ever Canadian trial of four “honour” murders caused by a Muslim polygamous family has returned guilty of first-degree murder verdicts for the father and husband of the women murdered, his second wife and their son.  GOD BLESS CANADA!

Editorial by Sally Armstrong in January 30 Ottawa Citizen.  Sally is the author os Veiled Threat: the Hidden Power of the Women of Afghanistan and Bitter Roots Tender Shoots: the Uncertain Fate of Afghanistan’s Women  Her third book: Daughters of the Revolution will be published in October.

The conversation continues from Afghanistan with another brutal murder of a young mother who failed to give her husband a boy!

  1. I am not sure why this has anything to do with polygamy, because honour killings occur irrespective of marriage? Secondly, I am nor sure why monogamy is not attacked on the same basis, seeing that many hundreds of women are murdered by their husbands within the so-called Christian monogamous societies of Western Europe and North America – for all sorts of spurious reasons?


  2. True, but interesting, as are many of your posts. I read through the
    past entries over the past week or two, and I must say I
    think I’m infatuated.
