CNN Tackles Honor Killings

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to watch CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s “exposé” on honor killings tonight. Something that I did notice today was when CNN ran promos for tonight’s 360, they showed some of the horrid clips of the now infamous video of 17 year-old Du’a Khalil Aswad, an Iraqi Kurd, being stoned to death for dishonoring her family.

The catch? Khalil was not a Muslim, nor were her murders. CNN won’t air a story thats “Islamophobic” you see, so they had to wait for an non-Islamic honor killing before they shocked the world with their exclusive report.

In typical MSM fashion, CNN apologizes for Islam, going on at length to explain that honor killings are not exclusively Muslim-though nearly all of them are-and that Mohammed's (May He Burn in Hell) Koran doesn’t say anything about honor killings. That’s what a fatwa is for, but hey, read the transcript here.

Excerpt:
The United Nations estimates that about 5,000 women fall victim every year to these so-called honor killings, and many more, as you just saw, commit suicide. Most, but not all incidents, involve Muslims. Moderate religious scholars point out that there is nothing in the Koran that specifically sanctions honor killings.
In typical Muslim fashion, The Religion of Peace™ decided that the best way to respond to Khilil’s murder was to hijack a bus and execute 23 Yazidi’s in Mosul.
