Actress In Harry Potter Films Victim Of Likely Attempted Muslim "Honor" Murder

You'd think that at least the celebrity angle would bring this to wide public attention.

You'd be wrong.

I write "likely" "honor" killing attempt because the media won't say that's why this young woman's brother and father attacked her.

But that's how it looks.

London Daily Mail:
“As part of their bail conditions, [the father and brother accused in the attack and threats] have to abide by an 11pm to 6am curfew and must not travel to London or contact an unnamed man.”

That last part – ‘contact an unnamed man’ gives the grisly clue to what triggered the murderous rage of the father and brother. The ‘unnamed man’ is clearly someone whom the young actress had been seeing. As a result of her association, the father and brother tried to kill her. In short, this was an attempted Muslim ‘honor killing’.

But the Daily Mail flatly refuses to state this obvious fact. You can read the article from top to bottom but not a single word of it identifies the father and brother’s murderous attack for what it is – an attempted honor killing. It gets worse – the Daily Mail won’t even identify the father and brother as Muslim. Why? It’s because the Daily Mail, like the media worldwide, quakes in cowardly fear of offending the ‘religion of peace’. Even when that religion orders a father to mercilessly slaughter his own child – as happened in this grisly case – the Daily Mail still won’t print the truth about the Muslim faith.

To state the obvious: Given the choice between "respecting" certain barbaric customs of the Islamist cult and protecting the basic rights and freedoms of citizens/women, the media finds this an easy call -- but not in the direction you would think.

Again: Consiglierte5.

Superman Vs. the KKK: The media has a lot of power to shame and teach. They praise themselves for this.

Except when you ask that they put this power into a service they don't agree with, then they cry impotence. Or that their sacrosanct code of objectivity prevents them from taking a stand on such controversial subjects as murder.

Did you know Superman was incredibly important in turning the KKK from a semi-respectable and feared organization into the national embarrassment it is now?

It's true, it's true.

But now? Nary a peep.
