I know some people must click onto this blog, see a post with this title, and begin weeping piteous ninny tears wondering how I can be so insensitive? Well, I think telling the truth at ALL times IS the height of sensitivity! As a case in point...
Quebec town to immigrants: you can't kill womenCue the Islamic whiners...
OTTAWA (Reuters) - Immigrants wishing to live in the small Canadian town of Herouxville, Quebec, must not stone women to death in public, burn them alive or throw acid on them, according to an extraordinary set of rules released by the local council.
The declaration, published on the town's Web site, has deepened tensions in the predominantly French-speaking province over how tolerant Quebecers should be toward the customs and traditions of immigrants.
"We wish to inform these new arrivals that the way of life which they abandoned when they left their countries of origin cannot be recreated here," said the declaration, which makes clear women are allowed to drive, vote, dance, write checks, dress how they want, work and own property.
"Therefore we consider it completely outside these norms to ... kill women by stoning them in public, burning them alive, burning them with acid, circumcising them etc."
Salam Elmenyawi, president of the Muslim Council of Montreal, said the declaration had "set the clock back for decades" as far as race relations were concerned.The question for Mr. Whiny Ass Elmenyawi, is he saying this stuff doesn't happen? Cuz he be wrong if that's what he sayin'...
"I was shocked and insulted to see these kinds of false stereotypes and ignorance about Islam and our religion ... in a public document written by people in authority who discriminate openly," he told Reuters.
Hasilbullah Sadiqi turned himself in to police on September 23, after the fatal shooting of his sister Khatera and the wounding of her fiancé Feroz Mangal on September 19, as they sat together in a car parked at an Ottawa shopping center. Khatera had been living with her fiancé and his family, and the speculation is that her murder was an honor killing.
Honor killings among immigrant families in Canada occur, but they are rare. The most notorious recent case was that of a Sikh family in British Columbia. The father was convicted of murdering his 17-year-old daughter because of her relationship with a boy of European origin.
Clitorectomy? Happened here...
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - An Ethiopian immigrant was convicted Wednesday of the genital mutilation of his two-year-old daughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison in what was believed to be the first such criminal case in the United States.
Khalid Adem, 30, was found guilty of aggravated battery and cruelty to children. Prosecutors said he used scissors to remove his daughter's clitoris in his family's Atlanta-area apartment in 2001. The child's mother, Fortunate Adem, said she did not discover it until more than a year later.
Wikipedia asserts one in Canada. (it is unsourced and I cannot find verification)
See, here's the problem, you can't behave as utter stone age savages in one context and honestly not expect us to wonder when you will revert to this behavior. Especially as this behavior occurs literally all over the world and is creeping into the West with Muslim immigrants.
That's all I'm sayin'.
