It’s unfortunately business as usual:

Noor Almaleki has just died in Arizona. May she rest in peace. May her murderer, her father, be brought to justice. My condolences to those who loved her.

May American justice prevail. The prosecutor has described this as an “attempted honor killing.”

At a court hearing over the weekend in Phoenix, county prosecutor Stephanie Low told a judge that Almaleki admitted to committing the crime.

“By his own admission, this was an intentional act and the reason was that his daughter had brought shame on him and his family,” Low said. “This was an attempt at an honor killing.”

Michelle Malkin is appalled, Grand Rants is horrified:

This is the second known honor killing this year in America. I pray that it is the last, but I fear there is worse to come. As I said back in February: Unthinkable at one time, but no more.

And memeorandum is practically empty on the subject.

If you wonder why Pam Geller personally spends so much time and effort on the Rifqa Bary this is why.

Pretending this isn’t happening is no solution, or like minority children killed in black neighborhoods by minority drug dealers are we going to ignore them because these are Muslims being killed by other Muslims?

The Former is already a national disgrace the latter is going to become one, and like the former it will affect the entire land no matter how much we pretend otherwise.

Update: The Moderate voice opines:

Imagine for a moment that a segment of the Southern Baptist Church was supporting the idea of parents killing their teenage daughters for going out on dates. The public reaction would be swift and severe (and properly so). Media figures like Bill Maher would go ballistic, labeling the entire Christian Church with such behavior.

And yet when this exact thing is happening within the Muslim community the reaction seems muted. In the United States today there are parents killing their children (usually daughters) for engaging in ‘dishonorable behavior’. One parent recently killed his child by running her over with his car.

I am not suggesting that this behavior represents the mainstream of any faith. But it is something that ought to be condemned regardless of where it is being done and the PC silence on the topic is disturbing.

So close and yet still slightly in denial.
