Religion of Peace, Culture of Death: 1091 Honor Killings In Turkey Past Five Years
— Ace

Or "honor" killings, I guess. Not sure how "honorable" it is to murder a defenseless woman:

1091 honor killings were committed in Turkey in the past 5 years, said Turkish Parliamentary Investigation Commission which was set up to probe honor killings.


The report says women are maltreated generally by their husbands, fathers or brothers. The common peculiarity of men who resort to violence is that they are young and have low income.

5000 worldwide honor killings annually. 5000 murdered women. With little justice for their murders.

On the plus side -- and this is a big plus -- Turkey is brave enough, and sane enough, as a nation to commission an investigation into this, and reveal the results to the world, no matter how shocking.

Thanks to Ogre Gunner.

2 I'm sure that NOW and other feminist organizations will rise up to protest the treatment of women on Turkey soon.

Any minute now...

...real soon...

3 If Turkey is this bad, the rest of the middle east is probably much worse.

a. President Bush
b. Dick Cheney
c. Karl Rove
d. White heterosexual male Americans

then no one in the MSM, NOW, etc will care iin the slightest.

Anyone willing to bet otherwise?
