Another woman has suffered the ultimate persecution by the "honor killings" trend in Pakistan - being stoned to death by her father and family members after she married the man she loved. Human Rights activists say 869 women were murdered in honor killings in Pakistan in 2013. But while the U.S. President (and his wife) have been very public in condemning the abduction of 300 kidnapped girls in Nigeria, the administration gives scarce criticism of crimes against general abuse of women committed by Sharia lovers. Why doesn't the WH show as much concern for these female victims of radical Islam?

mbuggieh, there are many cultures that practice it, but it doesn't make it right or excuse the Sharia followers that practice it. I'm not commenting on Obama's heritage or status and I feel your attempt to sidetrack the issue is "nonsensical crap".
Your first comment is a complete falsehood. Sharia law comes directly from Islamic religion and is resided over by Islamic judges. I find no reason to even bother with the rest after that complete falsehood.
Thank you for pointing that out, SassySue1963!
The only problem: Honor killings are not limited to Islam and/or Islamic cultures.
Honor killings are a form of international crime against women and happen in every culture.
Such killings are particularly common in India.
Please explain why.
According to a 2012 report from Islam In Europe (2012), 91 % of such murders were carried out by Islamic fundamentalists. Again, while these atrocities occur in a variety of cultures, the culture of Islamic extremism is THE predominant one.
Now that I'm dazzled with all you guys knowledge, answer this. Why are the Obamas, especially Michelle, responsible for the resolving of every cultural problem on Earth? Why are Republicans so obsessed with trashing Obama? It's really getting old.
Well IDONO, I am not a Republican (nor Tea Party member)...have praised Obama in the past, like the Obama kids and wish their family all the best..so hm, where does that leave such a tired old accusation?
