Speaking up for those abandoned by those who should have spoken up for them

Not all Muslims commit "honor killings" against their girls and women; however, all "honor killings" are committed by Muslims. This is a fact, like any other fact: a fact we have to deal with.

Those who manufacture the news and define correct opinion in the West are in denial over this fact. Call it cowardice or political correctness, the result is the same. And the only way to break through denial is to call things by their right names.

The right name for "honor killing" is murder, and the people who do it need to be punished. Their culture or religion is irrelevant; their deeds speak for them.
