Another Excuse For Honor Killings

Please, tell me again about Islam-the religion of peace. Tell me how women are free, even though they can be stoned to death based on nothing more than rumors. Tell me how high minded Islam is in regard to children, that can be used as shields, bartered for trade or killed outright for any infringment of parental authority regardless of the law of the land.

Now tell me that Canada is not complicit in allowing this to happen. Tell me that allowing the women who murdered her own daughter somehow deserves freedom of house arrest while her daughter lies dead in her grave. This is political correctness gone mad. To allow this based on the previous sufferings of the mother is to give tacit approval to sharia law and by association to a host of abusive family behaviors just because Canadian courts are too cowed by the implied threat of someone being mad at them.

Shame on you Canada, shame.

"(CTV News Calgary) — Lawyers for a Calgary woman who killed her 14-year-old daughter during a fight say she shouldn’t go to prison.

A judge is hearing sentencing arguments in the case of Aset Magomadova.

She was convicted of manslaughter for strangling her daughter Aminat in 2007 with a scarf.

During her trial, Magomadova testified that Aminat attacked her with a chair and threatened her with a knife.

The teen had a history of drug abuse.

Prosecutors say Magomadova should spend 12 years in prison.

Much of the focus of the hearing is on the trauma Magomadova suffered during the Chechen War.

A psychologist is on the stand Wednesday talking about Magomadova’s mental state.

The 39-year-old refugee’s husband was killed by a bomb in Chechnya.

She was badly wounded during the Chechen war.

When she came here in 2003, her children had a tough time adjusting to life in Canada.

Aminat got in trouble with the law and drugs.

But prosecutors point out that Magomadova showed no remorse or even regret for her daughter’s death.

They say she sees herself as the victim.

Doctor Patrick Baillie says Magomadova suffered from post traumatic stress disorder."
