Defending The Indefensible

Moslems excel at defending barbarism.

From the August 31, 2008 edition of the Washington Post comes this buried item:

Honor Killings Defended

A Pakistani lawmaker defended a decision by southwestern tribesmen to bury five women alive because they wanted to choose their own husbands, telling stunned members of Parliament to spare him their outrage.

"These are centuries-old traditions, and I will continue to defend them," Israr Ullah Zehri, who represents Baluchistan province, said Saturday. "Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid."

The women, three of whom were teenagers, were first shot and then thrown into a ditch.

They were still breathing as their bodies were covered with rocks and mud, according to news reports and human rights activists.
Okay, so maybe there are news reports out there in the mainstream media, and maybe human rights activists are outraged.

But the story gets nil coverage on the evening news.

Why is that? Where is the outcry?

Can't you imagine the coverage were such barabarity practiced and defended by Jews or Christians, particularly those in a political position?

Islam: Stuck in the Seventh Century. And Islam will continue to be stuck there as long as the mainstream media ignore such stories and continue the whitewash of Islam.
