Exclusive: Honor Killings and the Struggle of Moderate Islam

M. Zuhdi Jasser

Recently on Pajamas Media, Supna Zaidi of Islamist Watch addresses the Atlanta murder and July 2008 “honor killing” of Sandela Kanwal. She asked the question concerning the July murder, “Does Islam Justify Honor Killings?” Her outrage over the murder and the increasing prevalence of ‘honor killings” in the Muslim world is not only understandable but an issue that deserves a much more resounding response from Muslims. As Ms. Zaidi astutely points out, “What kind of an ideology causes a man to show no remorse for murdering his own daughter, but rants and raves at being served ham sandwiches while in prison? The media picked up the story quickly and asked, "Is Islam to blame?" The facts she discusses about honor killings and their linkage to the practice of Islam by some and the corrupt legal protections in countries like Jordan and Pakistan are certainly true.

Self-induced Nakba

This is a guest post contributed by Philip Carl Salzman, professor of anthropology at McGill University.

 The greatest Middle Eastern success in public relations opinion-shaping in the last forty years has been the Palestinian self-definition of themselves as a separate people and as victims of Israel and the West. The entire world, it appears, has been convinced. Europeans and many Americans, not to mention members of the Muslim umma, trip over each other offering sympathy and buckets of money to the Palestinians. The United Nations makes unique arrangements for the Palestinians, and numerous UN bodies devote themselves solely to the needs of the Palestinians. And those same Europeans and Americans, and the members of those UN organs, risk apoplexy in their violent denunciations of Israel—Israel the bully, the oppressor, the colonialist, the racist—for thwarting the Palestinians.

Ignoring radical Islam will lead to peril

"Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West," a Liberty Film Festival winner for best feature documentary film in DVD form, is a must-see movie for anyone.

The president of the Hudson Institute, a respected think tank, writes, "If you haven't seen it, you should! And if you have seen it, you should insist that others see it as well. Our future may depend on it." United States Naval War College Professor Jeffrey Norwitz sees it as "expertly produced with solid historic research; ... every viewer regardless of background will learn something."

Farewell Israel

I JUST FINISHED watching the documentary, Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran, and The Revolt of Islam. I liked most of it, and I think it will be a useful tool for us citizen warriors who want to help educate and motivate our fellow kafirs to join us in stopping Islam's relentless encroachment
( ).

The first half is very good. It covers the history of Islam from the beginning, putting emphasis on how Muhammad and then his followers treated kafirs — particularly Jews. The presentation was very fair and straightforward. If anything, I thought they were a little generous toward Islam. For example, in describing a major attack on the Muslims at Medina, the narrator failed to mention why Mecca was attacking (Mecca was a major trading city, with caravans arriving all the time, and Muhammad and his Muslims kept attacking the caravan, killing their business and killing their people). But maybe this point wasn't necessary.
