Honor (sorry, honour) killings, III


Barbara Kay on the Shafia case:

If we are to combat this social scourge, it is no use hiding behind politically correct feminist and multicultural mantras. At a panel discussion last winter, for example, a Toronto therapist took the reflexive feminist line that honour killings are just another form of domestic violence, a product of a generic "patriarchy" that could happen to any Canadian girl or woman: "It's not a [product of] South Asian or Muslim culture." Another panellist suggested there was an element of Islamophobia in "how these things keep getting labelled." The Canadian Council of Muslim Women claims that any connection between Islam and honour violence is "coincidental."
