A series of cases have highlighted the issue, including that of Heshu Yones, 16, from Acton. She was murdered by her father Abdalla - a Kurdish Muslim jailed for life over the killing - after she formed a relationship with a Lebanese Christian.
Sikh elder Palwinder Singh Dhillon, 65, was jailed for life for killing pregnant Anita Gindha Ralh, 22, in Manor Park. Her husband, with whom she had eloped, accused her family of ordering her death.
Police say some murders were carried out by contract killers.
police in London were being approached by an average of four women or girls a week who feared for their safety after " dishonouring" their family
What makes Islam so dangerous is precisely its characteristics of being a "social order". Yes, honour killings do occur within other "religions" as well (and are of course equally disgusting) but on top of this Islam, because of its militaristic and expansionistic root, is construed in a way that makes withdrawal difficult not to say impossible. Islam's main idea is totalitarian submission and when, for example, Tarik Ramadan might support some sort of secular state arrangements, he doesn't allow but Koran as the moral principle (e.g. he supports a continuing and limiting sex segregation and doesn't admit equality for women in ritual performance nor in many practical matters, which are not in line with his interpretation of Koran).
There are many lonely individuals out there in the modern world (see Homo Filius Nullius) and because they lack a common title few notice them. Subscribing to the submission of Islam doesn't necessarily help the individual as much as it helps the spreading of Islam!
No matter what the "moderates" say (those who say they are just nice and fine and only want some peace from the evil non-Muslims, and we don't take any responsibility for the Islamic terrorists either) Islam is militant sex segregation but What is sex segregation?
