Justice Served in Horrific Canadian Honor Murder

Pages: 1 2

It is still unknown how and where the four women were killed. The family was returning from a trip to Niagara Falls to their home in Montreal in two vehicles when they stopped near Kingston. The family claims the four females then took one vehicle for a joyride and were followed by the other to the “accident” site. After her arrest, Tooba Mohammed Yahya admitted they were all at the canal.

But when police retrieved the sunken vehicle, the ignition was off and the women had bumps on their heads, but no drugs were found in their system. The family also never reported the “accident” immediately to police. They waited until about noon to report the women as missing.

A very incriminating and revealing moment occurred when the family checked into a Kingston-area motel. Mohammed and Hamed Shafia first ordered rooms for six people and then changed it to nine. The motel clerk never forgot that unusual mix-up, saying the two appeared confused. The Shafias had seven children and actually numbered ten that night. The remaining offspring are now in the care of child welfare officials.

How the four Shafia women actually died will probably never be known. But enough circumstantial evidence existed to convict the parents and brother on first degree murder charges, which carry a sentence of 25 years. Canada does not have the death penalty.

In Muslim cultures, there is an emphasis on controlling women’s sexuality, so that they are virgins when they get married. The woman’s value and honor rests on an unbroken hymen, which is also where the honor of the men of her family and clan rests. Turkish men even have an expression emphasising this point: “A man’s honor lies between a woman’s legs.” And as the former Muslim and women’s activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes in her book Nomad, if the hymen is broken before marriage, then “a girl is a thing used, broken, filthy, her filth contagious.” Ironically, according to these twisted values, a girl who is a thief and a liar is still considered honourable if her hymen is intact, while the “filthy” one may be a top student who does charity work.

But this notion of honor lies in a complete possession of women. They are not free to develop as human beings and are not even free to have normal emotions or longings. In fact, a woman is never treated as an adult but as an eternal minor. She is to remain completely subordinate and submissive her whole life.

And it is mainly for this reason that the lives of three vibrant, young females ended in such tragic fashion in Kingston in 2009 along with that of their dear “auntie.” They refused to give up their right to live out their lives the way they wanted and rebelled. The two older sisters were also probably regarded as “broken, used, filthy.”

As long as men from cultures like the Shafias’ believe they have a cultural and religious right to control women (especially their sexuality), determine their lives and even murder them when they transgress some archaic, tribal code of honor, then it appears there is little Western countries can do to prevent such further tragedies. Especially since they despise Western culture and hold the laws in Western countries in contempt.

Familiarity with the offending cultures and early sensitivity and action to problem situations may save some girls’ lives. But the chief difficulty rests in changing the values and attitudes towards women in the countries where honor murders are condoned. And since this is problematic, to say the least, the West should get used to the fact that the social horror of honor murders is here to stay.

    I hope this tragic confirmation of the cultural traditions embraced by many immigrants to the west, will encoruage the liberal multi-culturalists to re-evaluate their beliefs about including and accepting the practices of all newcomers to our society. It's time we screened immigrants and clearly told them that any destructive belief systems would not be tolerated and that they must accept the laws of western society, not the laws of their homeland. Not much hope though – as I understand many are coming to take over our lands, not to integrate and join us in building this great country.

    Your comment hit home but I would hold my breath. The Muslim killers may get better and undetectable or the politically correct crowd may provide them with some type of cover. There are some western courts that have expressed relevance for Muslim religious violence.

    These people are so screwed up. While killing their daughters for the possibility of not being virgins, these men dream of going to heaven and having 144 virgins bestowed upon them.

    Now isn't heaven supposed to be where there is no sinning? How does that work with deflowering 144 girls and making them whores?

    • Stuart Parsons

      Muhammad claimed the houris of Heaven are of such a kind that their virginity is endlessly renewable. Allah designed them in this way because he knows how desirous of virgins Muslim men are……. although of course they are not virgins themselves. There is no need to discuss and argue about this delicate matter. All one needs to do is remember….. Allah knows best.. Please say a prayer for Muhammad who suffering torture in his grave because he peed down his leg.

    This is the real face of islamic arrogance and insensitivity to human decency. We can only imagine how many other children and teens live in fear of their lives from members of their own family. Of course, this case is more evidence (not that any was needed) of how toxic islam and how murderous its application is to people who simply want to enjoy their lives in freedom. We don't have to tolerate the parasite of islam. Like communism and fascism, islam's content is in direct contradiction of our laws. As Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson once said, "The Bill of Rights is not a suicide pact."

  • AntiSharia

    This is exactly why Muslims should not be allowed to Immigrate to the west. We don't need them bringing their barbarism over here.

    • randy

      Just like the abuse the christians put on the natives as thier land was being stolen. All christian religions shut be banned from canada.

  • Bryce Armstrong

    "Justice is served"?…and yet they still get to live.

  • UCSPanther

    You know what would be better?

    If the Shafia murderers spent the rest of their days in a pain amplifier…

  • xkn

    I am sure this is just an isolated incident and not reason to condemn the whole cuuuulture!
    Bring more in!

    It's a shame they don't have the death penalty in Canada. The Shafias seem to me like perfect candidates for it.

    Muslims never ever migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter to assimilate and integrate, but instead to eventually subjugate and dominate via the eventual imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme. Which is why just like clockwork the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants in country after country flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form Muslim only enclaves that in time eventually morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia as fifth columns and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside. Hence, since mass Muslim immigration to the West is in reality covert non-violent jihad for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme, the last thing a Muslim family will tolerate is for their own children to become blasphemers and apostates, as nothing else will invite more dishonor other than that.

    Indeed, if a Muslim family doesn't murder their own wayward children under those circumstances, to the Islamic community that would mean that the parents involved endorsed their wayward children's blasphemous un-Islamic behavior.

    Thus, unless the parents want to be murdered themselves for the crime of blasphemy, then they have no other choice but to murder their own children. As if this kind of un-Islamic and blasphemous behavior is allowed to stand unpunished, it could possibly undermine the entire covert non-violent jihad. Indeed, it is much more than just honor at stake. It's their own lives as well.

    The West must outlaw Islam and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration ASAP. Indeed, look around the world, Muslims never ever assimilate and integrate, and they cost hundreds of billions of dollars just to accommodate.

      You are so right on that! It is only a matter of time that these muslim fanatics try to force us all to convert, like they have begun in Australia and countries around Europe. We need to deal with them now, while we still can. Failing that, I advise every household to arm themselves, just to be on the safe side. If our governments won't help us by deporting these insane fanatics, we will eventually have to help ourselves.

      I'm wondering something,will these people try to force their religion on other immigrants to this country or what?

        I'm wondering something,will these people try to force their religion on other immigrants to this country or what?

        What people? Muslim immigrants? Muslim immigrants only immigrate to eventually make Islam supreme via the eventual imposition of Sharia. Hence, at that point all non-Muslim unbelievers regardless of where they are from will become harsh and degraded less than second class citizens.

        In addition, Islam is not a religion. It's a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology that masquerades as being a religion to dupe the gullible societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    If abuse of women meant automatic castration, mandated by law with no
    exception, rape would mostly end and so would Islamist immigration and
    colonization of the West. In America where our lawmakers and citizens
    are weak and show no backbone in dealing with crime this will never
    happen. There could come a day when the strong are fed up with and
    effete and criminal political class ruling over their lives and destroying
    the future of the Nation and act, possible, maybe………………………William
