Honor killings, II

Brian Seaman, a researcher with the Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre, makes the familiar multicultural attempt to soft-pedal honor killing by reminding us that domestic violence already exists in the West:

For example, take the hot button issue of “honour killings”. Barbaric as the practice admittedly is, it is tritely obvious too that Canadian women who are white and of Anglo-Celtic or other European backgrounds will suffer abuse and some will die at the hands of their boyfriends, husbands or exes in a domestic example that could attract the label of barbarity.

For the thousandth time, honor killings cannot be compared to ordinary acts of domestic violence. These are not crimes of passion. People in any culture are capable of crimes of passion. No, these are cold-blooded executions performed by people equipped with an on-off switch for love for their own children – a phenomenon that is impossible for a healthy Western mind to conceive of. To admit, on a large scale, people with such a cultural mindset into a civilized Western country is to welcome into our midst a systematic, dispassionate barbarism that is beyond our imagining.
