"Europe is headed down the slippery slope to complete subjugation to Islam. When civilization comes face-to-face with pure and implacable hatred of all it stands for, it has no idea what the appropriate response should be. Even in the face of 911, many Americans moan that it must be our own fault, and where did we go wrong? Its time for he world to realize we are in the middle of a hot war that is getting hotter. Islam preaches its my way or the highway, meaning if we don't capitulate, the we may decapitate."

You said it. Now, honour killings of women are becoming de rigeur in Denmark, it would seem from the following report: http://www.dawn.com/2006/05/16/top16.htm

Nine Pakistanis face trial in Denmark

COPENHAGEN, May 15: Nine Pakistanis living in Denmark went on trial on Monday accused of participating in the so-called honour killing of an 18-year-old woman who married without the consent of her parents.

Ghazala Khan was shot dead by her brother with two bullets in the heart in Sept 2005 just outside the train station of Slagelse, west of Copenhagen.

The prosecution has qualified the murder as an ‘honour killing’, the ninth in Denmark in the past decade, but the brother insists it was accidental.

Her husband, whom she had wed secretly, was seriously injured in the attack, thought to have been carried out in the belief that her marriage had tarnished the family’s honour.

Six members of the murdered Ms Khan’s family, including her father and three family friends, were charged with murder and attempted murder.

All the accused pleaded not guilty and the victim’s brother, 29, told the court that it had been an accident and that he had had no intention of killing her.—AFP
