A domestic violence issue.

Selma Djukic, a spokeswoman for the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, called it a case of domestic abuse.

"This is a tragedy. This another woman that has succumbed to domestic violence and we need to look at what kind of services are available to families who are immigrants and who are trying to make it in the Canadian framework," Djukic said.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. What a pluperfect spokesweasel. A girl gets strangled by her father for not living up to the customs of her parents' homeland and Djukic manages to neatly segue it into a veiled demand for more government services and simultaneously play down the "barbaric custom" angle in only two sentences. How peaceful must be the sleep of those with no consciences to bother them.

There are always apologists for even the most evil people and deeds.

I'm not sure when I have ever seen such an audacity of pretense.

That's just breathtaking.

but it's their culture, Tam. We wouldn't want to disrespect their culture or get in the way of diversity, would we?

Ahem, Canadians are Americans too.

Not United States of Americansers, but our confederation shares the north part of the American continent, thank you very much.

Ok, so in casual usage, American means United states citizen, but theirs is a technically correct appelation, and I'll bet a sandwich that , given it's propaganda it's got the same funders as your CAIR creeps.

One islam, many heads.

I think the guy actually does think he's following the dictates of his conscience.

My experience with these characters is that they suffer from a severe case of "I have a hammer, and everything in the world is a nail"; they'll tell you to your face with great sincerity that (insert group here) doesn't REALLY do things for whatever reasons they claim, because everything is actually about (issue). And they believe it.

I had pretty much the same reaction to this story.

"I don't want the public to think that this is really an Islamic issue or an immigrant issue," said Mohamed Elmasry of the Canadian Islamic Congress. "It is a teenager issue."

Teenager issue my arse. Bastard murdered his daughter because she wouldn't perform $religious_activity. Don't tell me it had nothing to do with religion.

Oh well, at least I can have some faith that here he'll at least be punished for the act, unlike in certain other neolithic satrapies. *cough Saudi Arabia*

This is a very sad incident. For someone so young to die like that. Islam prohibits the killing of innocent people. It simply condemns it. To me this issue is not one of religion but of self-control. People like that are on the news everyday in the US for killing their own family members. Would I come to the conclusion then that all Christians are bad? No I wouldn't. I also read in another article that none of Aqsa's sister's covered their heads, so I don't think the incident solely had to do w/ the "hijab" subject. They definitely had some family problems. It's a tragic situation and I really feel for the mother who is probably going through immense grief right now. Why do people murder? This may be due to simple rage or mental sickness. Whatever the cause, it needs to stop. That also includes the many school shootings that have taken place in the US over the past year. It's an increasing trend and we really need to do something about it.
