Meanwhile, the struggle for women’s equality continues in many aspects of American life, and in countries around the world. Obama in Cairo (text here)
Too bad Obama wasn't speaking about Islam.
This is the third honor killing post I have reported in the past 12 hours. And no one in the dinosaur media talks about it. All those loud mouthed full of shitniks talk big when excoriating and trashing those who fight for these women and recognize their plight, but they cower and wet their pants when forced to report on Islam. Instead they search for benign euphemisms for this most brutal and ugly ideology. The world in the West is changing for women. This war being waged in our society by Islam is about women, it's about power, it's about control.
Mark Steyn has this.........
Police say 14-year-old Kinza Kaianad died Monday evening at Kingston General Hospital as a result of injuries she sustained Saturday in a hotel pool in Gananoque, roughly 30 kilometres east of Kingston.
Her mother, 43-year-old Naila Yasmin, died in hospital on Sunday.
Yasmin, Kaianad and another daughter, age 11, were found unconscious in the indoor hotel pool just before 9 a.m. Saturday.
There would seem to be a statistically improbable number of multiple drownings of female members of Muslim families in Kingston this summer. If you're a young female Muslim, and you have any say in the matter, you might want to vacation elsewhere.
[UPDATE: The third Muslim girl found in the swimming pool has died. That's seven drowned young Muslim females showing up in the same morgue within a month. In other circumstances, they'd be planning the movie with Ashley Judd or some such as the crusading feminist Assistant DA. But as the M-word's involved I expect poor Zainab Shafi and the rest will be quickly forgotten.]
These are the victims of Western apathy and silence, and it's only getting worse:

The killing of Ghazala Khan in Denmark by her brother may be the only instance where an 'honour' killing has been photographed while being perpetrated. This picture was captured on cell phone camera and shows the woman's brother aiming the gun at his sister, lying on the ground. Her fiancee, also seen, was wounded, but survived. The killing was planned by her entire family, and Pakistani taxi drivers were used as spies to spot her and alert her family.

1/3 of the women murdered in Jordan are a result of Islamic "honor" killing. And yet I could not find one picture of a murdered girl in Jordan.
"It was a brutal scene. One victim's head was nearly cut clean off," an official is quoted as saying. (here)
And the thing is, this is the end - the final act, the culmination of the subjugation, oppression, violent abuse of women in Islam. The terror that precedes the murder is almost unimaginable. Living in fear, every day, living in fear of physical and mental abuse and still, standing up and living their own lives -- only to be murdered for it.
