    You are living in a country who does not tolerate this type of behavior.

    I am certain that the Koran does not advocate fathers killing their offspring.

    You are not welcome in my country.

    No one gives a shit about your family honor. Nothing your daughter can do in this continent would dishonor your family.
    Get over it, you fool!

    Family honor.The concept is dishonorable.Only evil people feel the need to uphold their family honor. Good people love their family enough and believe in them enough so that nothing they do,like meeting with people they don’t approve of,can shame or dishonor them. Let me explain something to you about these crazy cases of honor killings. I am by no means an expert on muslims but I have live with a Hindu for 40 years.The Taliban crazies are un-educated fanatics know less about the Koran than I do.They are illiterate youth who grabbed power much like the Hitler youth took over-disenchanted,disenfranchised and stirred up by the Ayatollahs when the Shah was deposed. America gave the guns and money.
    America-friend to all-including Stalin and the Shah of Iran,Mussolini, and Castro. Just check.The U.S never met a dictator it didn’t like.
    Please become educated-about your country and about muslim countries.” Crazy Honor Killings” are committed by ” Crazy people without honor.”
