Pamela Geller explains:
We placed our ads in Edmonton because human rights activists there wanted to partner with our organization to do so. Honor killing is a grim reality that is largely ignored, and girls are suffering as a result. Muslim fathers kill their daughters for real or imagined sexual indiscretions that have supposedly dishonored the family. Nothing is done because political correctness prevents us from speaking about the problem honestly. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide and Islamic law stipulates no penalty for a parent who kills his child. These girls need and deserve protection.
Apparently Muslims complained. Why?
Is this how the Canadian Muslim community responds to the desperate circumstances of Muslim girls living in devout Muslim homes? They deny, obfuscate and dissemble. The Muslim community protects the religious honor code, while smearing and libeling the truth tellers coming to the aid of these girls as “racists.” AFDI’s new honor killing awareness campaign was designed to help young girls living in fear of the Islamic honor code.
