December 22, 2011 - In Canada a man has been on trial for killing his daughters in what is being called ‘honor killings’ which is part of islamic law. It was reported by CNN that the three daughters had become too ‘westernized’ and were out of control in the father’s eyes. The bodies of the three girls were found in a car, submerged in water along with the man’s first wife. CNN also mentioned that the bodies of the girls were covered in bruises and it is not known if they were dead when the car submerged in seven feet of water, or if they were unconscious and drowned.


The bodies of Shafia sisters Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17 and Geeti, 13, were found drowned along with their father's first wife, Rona Amir Mohammad, 52, on June 30, 2009, inside a car in a canal in Kingston, Ontario.


Islamic leaders have denied that ‘honor killings’ is part of islam. However research noted on shows that Islamic law does permit it which cause one to question the reliability or honesty of the imams who have voice the denials.


Point De Bascule presented two texts which support honor killings. The first text is “Umdat al-Saliq” or“Reliance of the Traveller”, a manual of Islamic law certified in 1991 as a reliable guide to Sunni Islam by Cairo’s renowned al-Azhar University, the most prestigious and authoritative institute of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence in the world. This manual, composed in the 14th century,states that punishment or “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right” EXCEPT when “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers)” kills their “offspring, or offspring’s offspring” (section o1.1-2). In other words, a parent who murders his/her child for the sake of honour, is not penalized under Islamic law or Shariah.


Another text that supports the immunity for parents who kill their children was written by the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (1902-1989), an authority of Shiite Islam who led the Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979. In his book “Resaleh Towzih Al-Massael” or “A Clarification of Questions” published in 1961 he addresses the issue.


The Umdat al-Saliq was also endorsed by the Muslim Brotherhood-linked International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) in the United States. In the opening pages, the IIIT writes “there is no doubt that this translation is a valuable and important work, whether as a textbook for teaching Islamic jurisprudence to English speakers, or as a legal reference for use by scholars, educated laymen, and students in this language.” The Umdat al-Saliq is by no means an irrelevant or outdated document, and its rulings, including those on the subject of retaliation for murder, are legally binding and not subject for debate.


Recently The Learning Channel launched a pro-mulsim program which has drawn much criticism. However the politically correct crowd is pushing to keep the program on air. It makes one wonder if they really know what they’re promoting? Citizens and politicians alike will have to find the backbone to stand and say 'NO!' to the spread of a religion that promotes jihad.


Much question and accusation has been strewn that President Obama is islamic, but his former rival John McCain, the Christian favorite in 2011 stated in a public meeting that Obama definately is not. However no one has questioned the fact the president George Bush placed a copy of the islamic koran in the White House for the first time in history and also referred to it as the word of God. Now is not the time for partisan lies and accusations, but to tell the TRUTH and stand for it. A person must know what they believe, why they believe it, and be willing to stand for that belief.
