100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you
Honor Killings of Muslim Women in the West
Here are some of the faces that the PC media forgets in its defense of “cultural freedom” and “religious freedom” when it comes to Islamic cultural norms existing in the West.
These are just a few of the victims of honor killings that are on the rise in the West. In the undeveloped world, the number of honor killings of Muslim women each year is astronomical.
- Top: Fadime Sahindal, 26-year-old Kurdish resident of Sweden, murdered by her father for resisting an arranged marriage and wanting to marry her boyfriend (2/4/75-21/1/02)
- Second row, left: Ghazala Khan, 25-year-old Pakistani Danish woman murdered by her family for marrying a Muslim man against their will (1987-23/12/05)
- Second row, right: Tulay Goren, 15-year-old British citizen drugged, tortured, and murdered by her Turkish father for having a pre-marital relationship (murdered in January 1999)
- Third row: Noor Almaleki, 20-year-old American citizen murdered by her father by being run over with a vehicle, for resisting arranged marriage and being “too westernized”; her fiance’s mother, Amal Khalaf (not pictured), was also severely injured in the attack (02/89-10/09)
- Fourth row, left: Sara Said (left, 16/3/90-1/1/08) and Aminah Said (right, 2/3/89-1/1/08) were American girls murdered by their Egyptian father in 2008 for having non-Muslim boyfriends. He was never captured. This case was featured on America’s Most Wanted.
- Fourth row, right: Khatera Siddiqui, 20-year-old Canadian woman, and her fiance, Feroz Mangal, 23-year-old Canadian man, were murdered in 2006 by the woman’s brother because her family did not approve of the relationship.
- Fifth row, left: Aqsa Parvez, a16-year-old Canadian, was strangled to death by her brother in 2007 for not wearing the hijab (22/4/91-10/12/07)
- Fifth row, right: Sadia Sheikh, a 20-year-old Belgian woman, was murdered by her Pakistani family for resisting an arranged marriage and leaving home
- Sixth row, left: Anooshe Sediq Ghulam, a 22-year-old Afghan refugee in Norway, was murdered by her husband (whom she had been forced to marry at the age of 13 in Afghanistan and with whom she had two children) for trying to get a divorce due to domestic abuse. Murdered in 2002.
- Sixth row, right: Samaira Nazir, a 25-year-old British woman, was murdered by her brother, cousin, and other family members after she refused an arranged marriage and asked to marry a Muslim man of Afghan background, different from her family’s Pakistani background (murdered 23/4/05).
These are just a few of the MANY victims of honor killings each year, even in the West. Tumblr only let me add ten pictures to this photoset, but there are many other young girls and women who are brutally abused and murdered every year, not only abroad but also in our own backyards.
From Wikipedia: “Every year in the United Kingdom (UK), officials estimate that at least a dozen women are victims of honor killings, almost exclusively withinAsian and Middle Eastern families. Often cases cannot be resolved due to the unwillingness of family, relatives and communities to testify. A 2006 BBC poll for the Asian network in the UK found that one in ten of the 500 young Asians polled said that they could condone the killing of someone who dishonored their family. In the UK, in December 2005, Nazir Afzal, Director, west London, of Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service, stated that the United Kingdom has seen “at least a dozen honour killings” between 2004 and 2005. While precise figures do not exist for the perpetrators’ cultural backgrounds, Diana Nammi of the UK’s Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation is reported to have said: “about two-thirds are Muslim. Yet they can also be Hindu and Sikh.”
The number of honor killings is on the rise in the US, UK, Canada, and EU. This must not be tolerated.
Me and my hunky photographer boyfriend went to the park this weekend :3
I am a Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. 1/3 of my generation is gone and I will not turn my back on this tragedy. I have taken up my cross and joined the front lines of the Abortion Wars.
I will mourn the lost of 56+ million babies, I will grieve over the death of baby Isaiah, I will fight for the inherent right to life, for women to stop being treated as sex objects and for the post-abortive mothers and fathers who suffer in silence, and lastly pray for the end of abortion.
"I am a Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.”
Are you a Jew, homosexual, disabled person, Roma, Jehovah’s Witness, born into 1940 Germany? No? Then you are not a survivor of the Holocaust.
"1/3 of my generation is gone and I will not turn my back on this tragedy."
Yeah, and one third of ‘your generation’ lives in poverty, is hungry, needs medical care, is being abused, and needs support yet you weep over the ‘injustice’ of abortion.
"I have taken up my cross and joined the front lines of the Abortion Wars."
You are not Jesus. You are not a hero. You are a person sitting behind a little screen crying over some fertilized eggs.
"I will mourn the lost of 56+ million babies,"
Mourn the loss of the BILLIONS of babies who will die from hunger. Or who will die TONIGHT because of lack of health services. Mourn the loss of the MILLIONS of little girls who will die by suicide, in childbirth, or by the hands of their husbands because they are child-brides. Fetuses do not need you, real, living little kids need you.
"I will grieve over the death of baby Isaiah, I will fight for the inherent right to life,"
Sorry to break it to ya, but there isn’t an ‘inherent right to life.’ If there was, war, poverty, lack of healthcare, and the death penalty wouldn’t be around.
"for women to stop being treated as sex objects"
The first step of this is to stop seeing us as objects to carry a pregnancy. If we don’t want to be pregnant, we don’t want to be fucking pregnant and there is NOTHING you can say that will stop that.
"and for the post-abortive mothers and fathers who suffer in silence,"
Or you can just support them, no need to ‘fight’ anyone. People who regret their abortion need, first and foremost, people like you to shut the fuck up about ‘abortion is evil!’ ‘abortion kills a baby!’ because THAT is what causes the stigma. THAT makes people suffer. Second, they need people who will LISTEN without judgement. They need people who will SUPPORT how they feel, even if they are HAPPY about their abortion.
"and lastly pray for the end of abortion."
Good. Keep praying. Because everyone knows praying gets shit done.
No but seriously. Adding ‘56 million babies’ to the already exponentially growing population on this earth would benefit NO ONE!
Why do you disregard autonomously living, breathing people who actually need your support, money, and care for, essentially, a rapidly growing and mutating tumor? It has potential for life, sure, but when there are already SO MANY UNWANTED CHILDREN IN THIS WORLD, WHY are you advocating for more to be brought into this?
Stop being self-righteous. You are no better than anyone else on this planet. You don’t know the plights of anyone but your own.
You want to support women? Support their right to a CHOICE!
The 2 bloggers above who have added their commentary are golden.
Tom Hurndall was a peace activist and an aspiring photojournalist. His photographs, alongside his journals, bear witness to the often terrible, sometimes uplifting, events he saw and experienced while living among families in Iraq, in a refugee camp in Jordan, and in the Gaza Strip. It was there on 11 April 2003 that he was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier while attempting to rescue a child who had been pinned down by gunfire. He died nine months later in hospital in London.RIP
i really hate people who think that “freedom of speech” means “i can be as rude and insulting as i want and you’re not allowed to get mad”
"Her blonde hair was part of an attempt to to start over and adopt a new persona, following her first suicide attempt in August of 1953." Plath, who had spent six months in psychiatric care following the suicide attempt, had seemed to improve greatly by the the summer of 1954. This period of time has been lovingly referred to by her biographers as her “platinum summer.”
