American Muslim honor killings remain a threat

23 Jan. 2011 (ACNS) - So-called honor killings by Muslim immigrant men to the United States remain a threat to freedom. Muslim honor killings are usually perpetrated against a female member of a family who is deemed to have brought shame on the family. This can range from dating someone the father does not like to being "too westernized."

While America maintains freedom of religion as a fundamental right, that right does not extend to committing murder. That these honor killings are being carried out by Muslim immigrants in the United States should serve as a warning to all of the potential threat posed by Muslims in America.
