What is “The Price of Honor?”

FacebookTwitterGoogle+PrintFriendlyRedditDeliciousStumbleUponEmailShare

said_sisters_3 copyThe Price of Honor, a new documentary about the horror of honor killing, opens with a highly disturbing audio recording of a 911 call: Texas teenager Sarah Said screaming that her father is shooting her and her elder sister Amina.

Tragically, both girls were murdered that day, on January 1, 2008. Meanwhile, their killer, Yaser Said — who shot Amina twice and Sarah nine times under the pretense of “defending the family honor” — escaped the police and remains on the FBI Most Wanted List to this day.

But the movie also aims to cast light on a larger issue beyond the murders of Amina and Sarah Said. Through interviews with experts on the subject, the filmmakers explore the prevalence of honor violence both abroad and here at home, on American soil.

According to Amy Logan, author of The Seven Perfumes of Sacrifice, a powerful novel about honor killing that she spent 10 years researching: “Honor violence is first and foremost about cultures who view and treat women as property or inferior. This is a human rights issue –women’s rights are human rights. Culture is no excuse for abuse. It’s time for all communities in which honor violence occurs, regardless of religion, to start having an honest conversation about it.”

The AHA Foundation about, a non-profit dedicated to defending the rights of women and girls in part by collecting accurate data on these crimes, reports that there are between 25 to 28 honor killings a year in the U.S.

14 Year Old Girl ‘Honor’ Killed for Leaving Home Without a Chaperone

6a00d8341c60bf53ef0133f1f51341970b-600wi copyFour men, including the victim’s brother, were indicted Thursday for murdering 14-year-old Fatma Hayb, allegedly because she had angered them by leaving her house without a chaperone.

Along with the brother, Mustafa Hayb, 24, the defendants are her cousins Majed Hayb, 20; Issa Hayb, 20; and Bashar Hayb, 19. All are residents of the village of Tuba Zangaria in the Upper Galilee.

Fatma was murdered on the night of June 12. According to the indictment filed in the Nazareth District Court, Mustafa and Majed had both threatened to hurt or even kill her several times before, saying she was leaving the house without their permission and wandering around without a chaperone. At some point, they decided to carry out their threat and enlisted Bashar and Issa to help.

At 10:20 P.M. on June 12, the indictment stated, Bashar and Issa came to Fatma’s house with a 9mm pistol by prearrangement with Mustafa and Majed. Fatma was sitting outside in the courtyard. Bashar and Issa shot her at least eight times, hitting her in both the upper and lower body, then fled the scene. Fatma was severely wounded and died soon after arriving at the hospital.

Where Is the Media on the ‘War’ on *Kafir Women?

yazidi-girls copySometimes it takes a David to defeat a Goliath – or, in this case, unassuming nuns to speak where the media remain silent. Speaking out for Christians persecuted in the Middle East, Mother Olga Yaqob and Sister Hatune Dogan slammed the American media for keeping silent.

The nuns spoke with MRC during the In Defense of Christians (IDC) Inaugural Summit in Washington, D.C. Sept. 9-11. Both told the stories journalists ignore: of refugees displaced and Christian girls “repeatedly raped” and “misused” – some as young as 5-years-old.

Mother Olga of the Daughters of Mary of Nazareth, an Iraqi native recognized by the Iraqi government for her care of the poor, recently established a religious order in Boston.

Raised in Germany after fleeing from Turkey, Sister Hatune Dogan, is an Orthodox Christian nun who aids Christians in Syria and Turkey through her organization, “A Helping Hand to the Poor.” Addressing the American coverage of Christian persecution in the Middle East, Mother Olga stressed, “In the early months, there wasn’t much coverage.” “Some of the Christian networks – media networks – were covering [the persecution]. But not very much the secular media.”

Sister Hatune expressed similar dismay. “The media make a mistake,” she began, “Because they don’t say the truth.” She criticized, “But the media has big duty to tell the truth, to make Americans see what is really going on.”

That truth, she explained, consists of “slaughtering, raping, kidnapping, taking ransom, killing, crucifying, and ridding the Christians of what they need.”

*Kafir is an Arabic word for non-Muslims. It literally means ‘one who conceals the truth’ because Kafirs don’t admit to the truth of Islam and reject the faith. It is used as an extremely offensive curse word. It is a slur on infidels, disparaging and offensive.

Rape Victim Confronts her Rapist and is Arrested

delhi_rape_victim_1355833801_540x540 copyA victim of Rotherham’s child sex abuse scandal confronted a man she says groomed her – but was left shocked when she was the one arrested.

The woman was shocked when she saw the man walking through the town’s centre on Friday and decided to challenge him over the allegations.

But she was tackled by two police officers and pushed up against a wall during her ‘thuggish’ arrest, a witness has said.

This twisted, perverted behavior adds insult to injury. First, this poor girl is abused and raped by Muslim men, then treated like a criminal by British law enforcement. Is this multiculturalism and political correctness gone haywire or have the Brits totally lost their moral compass and embraced sheer evil as a standard to live by? What is happening to Britain?

Women’s Rights Defenders Say Nothing about FGM

fgm-girl-1 copyBut there is truly a war on women going on that these same radical Democrats and defenders of “women’s rights” say nothing about. We do not read even muted comments about this other war: namely, the application of female genital mutilation (FGM) in sub-Saharan Africa and throughout the Middle East.

It’s estimated, for example, that 97% of the women in Egypt have undergone this primitive, excruciating, and wholly unnecessary practice. Just this month, the Islamic State (sometimes referred to as ISIS or ISIL) issued a fatwa (a theocratic, binding command) that all women living in the areas they control will undergo FGM.

Estimates vary, but it will apply to approximately four million women between the ages of 11 and 46.

The liberals, who downplay the threat of Islam to Western civilization, hide behind “cultural relativism” on this one. There is no outcry against this barbaric practice. Instead, the cultural relativist says to himself or herself, That’s just how some third world folks are. You can’t expect people to change overnight. In short, the culpability of Third-World countries is minimized.

Women Aren’t Capable To Be Political Leaders Says Islamist

jenis-niqab copyKuala Lumpur: Pengkalan Kubor Independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary said women should not become political leaders as they are not capable.

In an exclusive telephone interview with Astro AWANI, he said this was evident when countries like Thailand and Pakistan, which were led by women, faced numerous problems.

“We can see the weaknesses of women leaders clearly just by looking at our neighbouring countries,” he said referring to Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and Pakistan’s former PM Benazir Bhutto.

Izat, who is a former lecturer, said problems will arise if women become state or country leaders.

More on ISIS Sex Slaves

women-abducted-by-the-islamic-state-feared-trapped-in-sexual-slavery-1410376595 copyThe fate of hundreds if not thousands of women who have been kidnapped by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq and reportedly forced into marriage or raped is still largely unknown, according to United Nations and human rights officials.

Most of the missing women are members of Iraq’s Yazidi minority who were captured in towns where locals were unable to flee quickly enough to Mt. Sinjar and Kurdish-controlled areas as ISIS launched its offensive in early August. The terror group is also believed to have abducted Shia Turkmen, Christians, and Shabak women.

Shortly after their capture, the UN cited reports of “barbaric” sexual violence and “savage rapes” perpetrated by ISIS.

Francesco Motta, director of the UN’s human rights office in Iraq, told VICE News that the number of women captured in and around Nineveh Province in the northeast of Iraq could be as high 2,500 — including 1,000 who were forcibly converted and possibly married off, as well as 1,500 who refused to do so and languish in captivity.

“A number of women have been told that they will be taken to Syria or other neighboring countries and sold there,” he said.

Female Jihadis Run Brothels for ISIS

aec17e8becb4b7281fc8a6f760f6b951-550x383 copyBritish female jihadists are running ‘brothels’ where thousands of Iraqi women are being forced to work after being captured by Islamic State militants, it has been reported.

Shocking new details have emerged after it was revealed young British girls are behind an ultra-religious all female militia in Raqqa that is brutally punishing “un-Islamic behaviour” in the area, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

Sources now claim that the women, who travelled from the UK to marry militant fighters, have set up brothels for the IS fighters to use.

The terrorist group, formally known as ISIS, are killing and enslaving members of Iraq’s ancient religious minorities, including Assyrian Christians and the Yazidis.

One teenager taken captive by IS has described being forced into sexual slavery by the Islamist terrorists along with 40 other women, some as young as 12. The 17-year-old Yazidi, who is still in captivity, said her torturers were “people without a heart” who “do not even spare the women with small children”.

She claimed the women in her group of captives – all Yazidis – were being sexually abused on a daily basis, while being held in a building with barred windows and guarded by armed men.
