The Obama web site is hosting a page dedicated to Mohamed Elmougy, who in front of the Dallas Morning News Editorial board openly supported honor killings -- specifically in discussion of Amina and Sarah Said.
Why does Obama (and his people) approve this garbage and leave it up at his site?
Here are Elmougy's comments to the Dallas Editorial board on the brutal Said killings:
Mohamed Elmougy, a prominent North Texas Muslim community leader and Egyptian immigrant, defended violence, even deadly violence, against women and homosexuals. Though the term "honor killing" did not come up in either discussion, Mr. Elmougy explained that violence against sexual outlaws is acceptable to defend the family and the social order.
"The way we view it, we don't look at it as violent," he said. "We look at it as a deterrent."
Well. When you have a community acculturated to the belief that women (and gays) who break taboos deserve to be beaten, even killed, out of some twisted concept of the common good, you can be sure there are innocent people enduring silent, anonymous suffering.
Here's an excerpt from Obama's page waxing poetic on Elmougy:
We first sat and talked in those numb days right after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.We mourned together, and Mohamed Elmougy helped me understand a little more about what had befallen us.
I returned several times over the years to visit with the local Muslim community leader. And this week's fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq seemed a good time to once again glimpse the world through his eyes.
Mohamed, 49, owns the Pyramids Hotel in Allen. He's Egyptian by birth and American by choice.
He opposed the war from the start. "You will remember that I said getting out won't be nearly as easy as going in," he said.
I remembered, particularly since I had bought the argument that Iraqis would welcome us.
"We were fools to think we were going to be seen as liberators," Mohamed said. "We are seen as occupiers, and we always will be."
