'My daughter deserved to die for falling in love' World news The Observer:
"Two weeks ago, The Observer revealed how 17-year-old student Rand Abdel-Qader was beaten to death by her father after becoming infatuated with a British soldier in Basra. In this remarkable interview, Abdel-Qader Ali explains why he is unrepentant - and how police backed his actions. Afif Sarhan in Basra and Caroline Davies report"
This is one of the main reasons religion disgusts me. Islam in particular. They teach their men that without tight religious control, men are animals and will rape and kill randomly. They teach that women without religious control will become whores. They don't seem to ever teach morals or learn to live morally willingly and naturally. Islam seems to teach that the natural human is forever on the brink of barbarism and only held back by the fear of Allah. And they teach that if someone strays from the straight and narrow rules of Islam, sudden terrible death is appropriate.
Today's medieval barbarism of Islam is reminiscent of Christianity up to the 1700's. Unfortunately for them, the rest of the world is watching very closely and seeing what kind of people they are and that what they represent is not desired in this world. I hope the conflict that generates isn't too great. But appeasement of Islamic sensibilities is not negotiable. Islam is not to be respected.
