My family beat me and hacked off my hair for kissing a white boy
Daily Mail ^ | 8/24/2012 | Daily Mail

Shamima Akhtar has got used to looking over her shoulder. Walking to work or shopping at the supermarket, she is watching closely, hoping ‘they’ aren’t following her.

‘I don’t go out much in daylight,’ she says. ‘And when I do, I go to places they’re unlikely to find me.’

It’s a horrible way to live, one made all the worse by the fact that they ‘they’ are 19-year-old Shamima’s family — who terrify her and from whom she is completely estranged.

Few could blame her, given what she’s been through.

Last year, three of her siblings — sisters Nazira, 29, Nadiya, 25, and brother Mohammed-Abdul, 24 — launched a sickening assault on Shamima, which culminated in her sisters slapping and punching her and hacking off her waist-length hair.

Shamima’s crime? Kissing a white boy at her 18th birthday celebrations.

Earlier this year, the trio were found guilty at Winchester Crown Court of actual bodily harm in a case that, the jury was told, centred on ‘honour-based domestic violence’.

While her Muslim family embraced certain aspects of Western life, behind the doors of their detached home in Basingstoke, Hampshire, strict Islamic law ruled.

Shoot, if my Muslim In-Laws EVER did that too my wife or our kids...

There would not be a place on earth safe for them.

Prayers for this lovely couple.

Seriously, why can't we all just get along.

No Sharia Law, No Soviet/Bureaucrat Commissars telling us what to do or how much we suck.

Just leave each other be.

I guess I'm behind the enlightened times practiced by families of people named "Mohammed", "Abdul", or variations thereof. At least they didn't cut her head off.

I've had the stern talks with my daughter and even joked about disowning her, but I can't understand behavior like this.

horse crap.

Soooo Popman,
Which is going to be a larger pain in the rear, Isaac or the convention?
I lived for 15 yeas on Davis Island, bet it floods.

It is a cult~~a very dangerous cult. Especially if you are a woman and has no place in a civil society.

While the brutality of such stories makes the headlines, you have to wonder how much erosion is taking place to such primitive, barbaric customs.

As the expression used to go, “You have not converted a man because you have silenced him.”

The savagery of Islam is dependent on ignorance of alternatives by its followers, and their being no other choices to escape to.

At the time Islam came to be, it represented civility, at least compared to the alternatives, and this was its selling point. Even a peasant could tell that it was a better way to live than the way he was living.

However the rest of the world changed and got much, much better, and far more civil, but Islam did not.

So Muslims are stuck. Their traditions tell them that Islam is much, much better than anything else. But their own eyes tell them a different story. That everybody else has better lives than they do, and that their lives suck.

They are no longer the civilized people. They are the barbarians. No, it is not better to treat women like farm animals. No, it is not better to have a legal system based on whim. No, death is not better than life.

In fact, most of everything they do sucks.

Yet when they come to the western world, they do so with the idea of converting civilized people to barbarism. Not an easy sales pitch. But it goes to my original point.

You have to wonder how much erosion is taking place to such primitive, barbaric customs. How many Muslims are smart enough to realize that there is a much better way to live than Islam. That all their nasty, tribal customs are crude, self-defeating and stupid.

And this is something that won’t make the papers. Every time a Muslim does the math, and decides to walk away, they lose another brick in the wall.

OH I already know the answer as to why, my Mother in Law told me that the first time I let her.

"Filthy Jew Boy" (and that was in French!)

Fortunately I just took the whole think in stride and told her I love you too! and so will your Grandkids!

Although she still doesn't know Leena has left Islam and I suspect that beautiful young lady in the story is not long for the Islamic world either.

When I first got out of the Army I ran a front end loader building that Crosstown Xway.
Can’t believe that two story addition.
Can’t believe it crashed and burned and they built it again still.
Have fun and enjoy the winds, it will help to clean things up ultimately.

Lucky for her she is in the UK else she would have been buried up to her neck in the sand and stoned to death by a rabid crowd of islamist.

I found your post 12 very insightful and comprehensive in its assessment of the problem...which does not appear to be solvable within the confines of western civilization.

Muslims have no place in our and any other western country. They are complete misfits. And I think they know it, as you indicate.

Thank you very much.

But they live in France and since we live here in the United States, I always make a point of NOT seeing them regularly.

Though if things continue the way they are, I am seriously considering joining my Parents in Israel, they live near Haifa.

However then I have to worry about any Muslims finding out Leena is an apostate from Islam.

This cycle of Hatred must stop.
