Little Green Footballs: ‘Honour Killings None Of Our Business’

Posted by DJM on February 22, 2009

Charles is really exposing his true colours in this post. He is now attacking Pam Geller and Robert Spencer for daring to show a little compassion and common decency to a Muslim girl murdered by her father and brother. Charles’ response, in his own words:

Like others who are clueless about the religion of peace, Charles ignorantly insists the intent of Pam and Robert is for selfish gain. It is not.

In Islam, a woman who supposedly shames her family not only has her life taken, but also her memory. Every attempt is made to erase her existence, thus, the shame. That includes an unmarked grave.

What Pam and Robert have attempted is to sustain Aqsa Parvez’s memory with a simple headstone that reads, “Beloved, Remembered, Free.” It isn’t political, it isn’t anti-Islam, and it doesn’t serve to personally benefit either Pam or Robert.

It is just a reminder that Aqsa Parvez’s life did matter, even if her family, by virtue of their inhumane and cold ideology, doesn’t agree. It is also a gesture to remind ourselves that we will not devalue any life, and that we fight to defend all innocent life.

Yet, according to Charles, a young girl abused and murdered, both in life and in death, is none of our business. That we are “disgusting” for caring. It is only the prerogative of the family that committed this horrendous crime that matters. Ironically, that very same mentality – the mentality that certain individuals, usually women, are the sole property of male family members – is what fuels human rights abuses throughout the world.

Charles, what is truly vile is your cavalier attitude towards this murdered young girl. You want to assist her family in erasing her memory. In some ways, that makes you culpable in the ‘honour killing’ of Aqsa Parvez. That is absolutely disgusting.

    It is the ultimate honor to be banned by Johnson. He IS starting to sound just like terrorists he claims to hate.
    What a creep.

    I can understand you but still Charles is very vocal about the larger Islamofascism threat.

    Great blog you have, BTW.
    I am linking yours to mine

    Arabracismislamo… oh heck.

    Anyway, he was vocal. He is getting more quiet by the day.

    (unless your cause is against those *gasp* G-d believers!) He’d have plenty to say then.

    No matter how many beheadings, honor killings, or terrorist attacks there are, and no matter what groups carry them out, we must never fear, resist or mock the precious and ever peaceful Islam. Who are we to say that raping 9 year-olds is immoral? Who are we to say that stoning gays and rape victims to death is evil?

    Who are we to say that killing hundreds of people every month in the name of Allah is the height of evil? That is just their culture and ideology and it MUST be respected. Morality is all relative, we must remember that.

    all planets Islamic

    Earth is one of many
    in process of conversion

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe wants
    many Taliban planets

    stonings and be-headings
    billions served daily

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    allow Islamic conquest

    enjoy the dhimmi life
    of second class citizens

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    convert the infidels

    or make them pay a tax
    if they don’t want to die

    All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
