Honor killing, respect killing

Reader comment on item: Bridges TV, a Wife's Beheading, and Honor Murder

Submitted by yidlmitnfidl (Canada), Feb 25, 2009 at 11:09

One of the fundamental problems the Western world has with Moslems is that Moslems crave respect and they don't get it. Moslems don't understand that respect you must earn & not get at gunpoint, suicide killings, abductions and all other varieties of terrorism.

The domestic side of this craving for respect is the demand for honor.

Same thing here: Honor one earns and one does not get it by intimidation, violence and honor killing.

The Moslems wounded ego will hount the west for generations to come. It will only go away once they start being a productive part of our society.

Don't hold your breath till then.
