Still another "honour" killing

I'm late to this particular discussion, which has been all over the blogosphere for days now, and even the MSM is paying some attention to it, but a Pakistani immigrant recently killed his daughter after she told him that she wanted out of her marriage: Of course, the MSM is glibly glossing over the connection of Islam to this horrible murder, going out of its way to portray as a simple "domestic violence" issue as opposed to a cultural or religious issue. Yeah, like we see Southern Baptists and Catholics killing their daughters because of perceived stains on their "honour". If you don't buy that first narrative offered by the MSM, then they'll throw the "It's our fault because we're not tolerant enough" argument at you, as if something like this should ever be tolerated in a civilized society.

What I want to know is, where is NOW (the National Organization of Women) on this? Where are any feminist organizations? You haven't heard word one out of them. Their silence borders on the criminal. One would think that if they truly do represent women, and are not simply a left wing lobby group, they would speak loudly and often on this subject. I think that their silence speaks volumes.................
