Allahu aqbar!


Yes, that's right. Who can doubt the wisdom of these words? This week we have another example of the benevolence of Allah's believers.
For instance, this is the guy who just killed his daughter because she didn't want to accept the forced marriage that the family had arranged for her. It's nothing but family values, right?
ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- A Pakistani man accused of killing his daughter because she wanted out of an arranged marriage told a judge Tuesday that he had done nothing wrong.

My one concern about the CNN.com story is that it seems to accept the statements of the parties referring to the victim and her "husband". In fact, it is clear that this young woman never married the stranger, who lives in Chicago, and never consented to the supposed marriage, which somehow took place in Pakistan.

I wonder if this is a common occurrence in the Muslim world or an aberrant event. It seems like an extreme reaction, no?
