A "man's" Gotta Do What a "man's" Gotta Do (Islamic Version)

AMMAN, Jordan: A father shot dead his 17-year-old daughter, having suspected her of having sex, and surrendered to the police in the latest case of the so-called "honor killings" that have brought international opprobrium on Jordan. An autopsy found the girl to be a virgin.

Weeks earlier the girl had returned home from a family protection clinic after doctors had vouched for virginity and the father had signed a pledge not to harm her, a state forensic pathologist said Thursday.

The man shot dead his 17-year-old daughter and surrendered to police, saying he had done it for family honor, a state forensic pathologist said Thursday.

The father suspected his daughter of having sex and continued to doubt her chastity even after a clinic said she was a virgin, said the pathologist, who spoke on customary condition of anonymity owing to the sensitivity of the issue.

The father shot her four times in the head on Tuesday. An autopsy was performed on Wednesday, and this showed "she was still a virgin," the pathologist said.

For the rest of this sad and tragic chapter in the pathological social ideology known as Islam, go here.
As long as you are on the International Campaign Against Honor Killings, I invite you to take a look around the site. It's worth a few minutes of your time.

There are thousands of stories like this. Every year an estimated 5000 young women and girls are killed. Countless others are maimed as a result. And that's just the women. Men are also attacked and for the same rationale: The family's "honor" has been stained. Dig deeper, and one will always find an imbalance in the Arab male psyche at the root. He fantasizes a 'femme fatale' as the ideal woman for himself, projects that image onto the woman (be it wife, daughter, sister, doesn't matter), then spends the rest of his sorry life, trying to make sure the females in his family don't become that fantasy. So when one of the females even appears to be taking that route, the other men know the deal, and know that the appearance of impropriety is seen as fact in the Arab village mentality. At least, that's my take on it, ala Carl Jung.

Now, many western men do that, too. They just don't have the burden of "family honor" to uphold, so when it all goes bad, they just take off. Look for another woman to project their fantasy onto. Women do it too. It would seem that the whole world is sick. So it's a damn good thing we do have the Judeo-Christian values holding the moral side of human contracts together. The Islamists see only our weak side, they are ignorant of, and can't relate to the process of human involution and evolution. Too bad. In their tiny minds they think that some illiterate, sheep-humping imam knows better than God. Such presumption, such effrontery will not fly in the Western World. No sir. And it's time they got that message.
