Honor Killings - Don't Drink the Kool-Aid
There is no place for political correctness nor journalistic timidity when it comes to an open and frank discussion of "honor killings."
I did not include the link to the video portraying the stoning death of Du'a al-Sawad given its extremely graphic nature and due to the fact that I don't know how many young people (for whom it might be too much) visit the site. It is easily found if you Google her name. Jeff Jacoby also links the video from his August 10th article out of the Boston Globe. I am having a difficult time getting it out of my mind - which is probably a good thing. Sarah Said's 911 call is also online. I could not listen to it.
