Ho-wood and the msm has no idea which side to support in this situation. Both sides are their constituents: A movie star on one side, and islam on the other side.

Well I hope she doesn’t have to stay in hiding forever.....She may find it better to go ahead and testify against them than run and hide her entire life.....

Isn’t Salman Rushdie still in hiding since writing his book, “Satanic Verses” in 1988 since the fatwa for his head still remains in effect?

Any father who would kill his daughter because his ego will not handle her rejecting his religion should be castrated with a butter knife and then skinned alive.

See. I’d make a pretty good muzzy.....

Not bad, but Muslim woman just don’t do it for me. She will look like Omar Sharif when she gets older.

And CAIR is lobbying for Sharia Law here in the US.

So Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness doesn't apply to women!

What if - now hear me out - what if we killed whatever filthy muzzie was attempting to honor kill their daughter?

If every filthy muzzie knew that putting a hit on their daughter would result in putting a hit on their own head, maybe this nonsense would come to a screeching halt.

“What if - now hear me out - what if we killed whatever filthy muzzie was attempting to honor kill their daughter?”

Much better idea. All of these guys should be caught given a sex change, have a transfusion with pig blood, and sold to an asian whorehouse.

Take the brother and father out and execute them on national TV. And then say that this is exactly what every muslim male who abuses women can expect!! After they riot take out Mecca! I’d call a justifiable honor killing!

I’ve often wondered why the NY mob didn’t start killing some of these radicals after 9/11. They’re messing with their livelihood too.

That’s what happened in India:

Early in British Imperial Occupation, a British officer was patrolling northern India and they came across an Indian burial. They were just about to throw the dead man’s wife into the husband’s burial pyre to be burned to death when the British officer shouted for the whole thing to be stopped.

“But sir”, a local protested, “It’s our culture to burn the wife with the husband when he dies!”

The officer raised his rifle and stated, “It’s our culture to shoot anyone who does that!”

The practice quickly ended.

You’ll have to not only take them out but the whole world-wide Islamic faith to keep that from happening.

We have here abuse even murder of women, complete religious intolerance, and a faith that calls for a theocracy.

And liberals can’t do enough to urge tolerance and to make special exceptions for this.

All too soon, if our Muslim-in-Chief can make it happen.
