Look long at these girls.
Now read this and get outraged.
A senior judge today condemned the idea that arson and murder were matters of 'honour' within a Muslim family.
Lord Justice Wall, giving a ruling on a case involving three Muslim children put in the care of white foster parents, said the time had come to 're-think the phrase honour killing'.
He had heard that a mother had set fire to one of her three children and tried to burn down the house where they lived in an attempt to incriminate her sister-in-law.
The sister-in-law 'presented a problem to the family' and had fled the home after being beaten and her first child murdered by her husband, the mother's brother.
The judge said: 'The message from this case, which must be sent out loud and clear, is that this court applies a tolerant and human rights based rule of law: one which... regards parents as equals and the welfare of the child as paramount.
'That is the law of England, and that is the law which applies in this case. Arson, domestic violence and potential revenge likely to result in abduction or death are criminal acts which will be treated as such.'
He said the activities brought to light by the case had 'nothing to do with any concept of honour known to English law'.
'They are acts of simply sordid, criminal behaviour and a refusal to acknowledge them as such.'
In a statement issued with the judgment, it was pointed out that this was the first time that so-called 'honour' conduct within an ethnic minority community had reached the Court of Appeal in a care case.
The 41-year-old father of the children had tried to appeal against a High Court Family Division ruling which had refused him contact with his children and had rejected calls for them to be placed with a Muslim family.
The local authority had acknowledged that the placement with a white, English non-Muslim family was 'culturally and religiously inappropriate'

The mother of the children - a girl aged 11 and boys of nine and five - is 32 and serving a five-year jail sentence for arson.
One of her brothers had contracted a second marriage to a woman in Pakistan who came to England in 2003 pregnant with her first child.
That child was taken to hospital aged 27 months suffering from multiple injuries and died.
It was not known the motivation for the killing but among the injuries on the child were signs of chronic sexual abuse.
Both the brother and his wife were arrested - the man was convicted of murder and the woman cleared of neglect.
Some Muslim women who refuse arranged marriages can face physical abuse for smearing their family's 'honour'
The grandfather in the family is recorded as saying that the death was an accident and the will of God.
He has made it clear that the son will return to live at the family home when he is released.
His daughter-in-law returned to live at the family home and gave birth to her second child, a son.
She was illiterate and while in Pakistan was effectively a prisoner in her own home, her role in life destined to be that of a wife in an arranged marriage, said Lord Justice Wall.
The judge said she remained 'under virtual house arrest' in England, not even aware of the name of the city where she was staying.
In May 2005, she fled with the help of the police and social services after complaining of severe ill-treatment.
She was moved to a secret location after saying the family would track her down and kill her - they would not allow her to 'disgrace' them. She is still in fear of her life.
Later that year, the mother of the three children alleged her sister-in-law and another had entered her home in burkhas, cut the mother's hands and neck with a knife and poured white spirit on to one of the children's clothing before setting fire to clothing at the bottom of the stairs.
There's more -- these vicitms have no shot. They are living in an Islamic state.
