How many times have we heard this story time and time again, yet the West allows the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to chart the course in how the UN will deal with certain subjects totally related to Islamic behavior. Just recently the UN passed a document that failed to take notice of violence directed towards sexual minorities which rightfully angered the Gay community.
The Tundra Tabloids’ dear friend, David G.Littman, who speaks for progressive Judaism NGO at the UNHRC in Geneva, has been silenced time and again (having his microphone turned off) every time he mentions anything to do with Islam and human rights abuses, like FGM and honor killings.
It’s high time that the issue of Islamic honor killings be taken seriously, the facts laid bare for all to see, reported on and the proper action taken. Forcing the OIC to openly accept and admit that honor murders have much to do with Muslim thinking about women in general would be the first step towards ending the practice. KGS
UN DHIMMI: NAIROBI, Kenya, December 3 (CDN) — A 17-year-old girl in Somalia who converted to Christianity from Islam was shot to death last week in an apparent “honor killing,” area sources said.
Nurta Mohamed Farah, who had fled her village of Bardher, Gedo Region to Galgadud Region to live with relatives after her parents tortured her for leaving Islam, died on Nov. 25. Area sources said they strongly suspected that the two unidentified men in Galgadud Region who shot her in the chest and head with a pistol were relatives or acting on their behest.
“Reports reached the relatives in Galgadud that Nurta Farah had converted to Christianity,” one source said. “The suspicion that the family is responsible is a solid one.
The sister was killed in Abudwaq, a district in Galgadud Region, and the place where the incident took place is about 200 meters from where the sister was staying with relatives.”
Relatives buried Farah, sources said. Her parents had severely beaten her for leaving Islam and regularly shackled her to a tree at their home, Christian sources said. She had been confined to her home in Gedo region in southern Somalia since May 10, when her family found out that she had embraced Christianity, said a Christian leader who visited the area (see “Family of 17-Year-Old Somali Girl Abuses Her for Leaving Islam,” June 15).
