Death Before Dishonor in Pakistan

From 7-6-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F

There are good Muslims and there are bad Muslims. According to liberals, most of them are good. Let me tell you about the Muslims in Pakistan, an ally of the United States.

Pakistan has one of the highest numbers of what they call “honor killings” in the world. Over 1,000 people were murdered last year alone.

From the Associated Press:

Parveen Rafiq closed her hands around the neck of her youngest daughter, Zeenat, and squeezed and squeezed until the girl was almost dead.

Then, in the tiny apartment where the family lived, she doused the 18-year-old with kerosene and set her on fire.

Neighbors saw the smoke and rushed to the home. Someone inside, apparently one of Rafiq’s daughters-in-law, was screaming, “Help her! Help!”

But the door was bolted from within. Moments later, they heard Rafiq scream from her rooftop: “I have killed my daughter. I have saved my honor. She will never shame me again.”

Zeenat’s crime was marrying a childhood friend she loved, defying her widowed mother’s pressure for an arranged marriage and, in the mind of her mother and many of her neighbors, tarnishing her family’s honor.

This was on June 8, in the eastern city of Lahore. Remember, there is only one half of one percent of Muslims who are terrorists, who are “bad.” The rest of them are happy-go-lucky people. Charming. Fun to be around. People who we should have no problem letting into the United States.


In one case, a mother slit the throat of her pregnant daughter who had married a man she loved. In yet another a jilted suitor doused a teenage girl with kerosene and set her on fire.

In the city of Abbottabad, a teenage girl was tortured, injected with poison and then strapped to the seat of a vehicle, doused with gasoline and set on fire. Her crime was helping a friend elope.

A jirga, or council of local elders, ordered her killing and dictated the manner of her death. The vehicle was parked in a public place, outside a bus stop as a message to others.

This is Pakistan, an ally of ours. Paul Ryan says Saddam Hussein was one of the most evil people of the 20th century. How dare Donald Trump say the world would be better off had he remained in power. You want to talk about evil? How about Pakistan? I would say dousing a girl with kerosene and lighting her on fire would classify as evil, but we don’t go and invade Pakistan.

This isn’t just a fringe, either. Last year, three people a day were killed in “honor” crimes in Pakistan; a total of 1,096 women and 88 men. This is according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. In 2014, the number was 1,005 women, including 82 children, up from 869 women killed a year earlier. They say the true number is much higher, with many cases going unreported.


Two thousand people killed within the last two years. Most of them women. Girls being injected with poison and set on fire and displayed in public to warn others not to do what they did. What did they do? Help a friend elope. Marry someone their mom or dad said they couldn’t marry.

These are the good Muslims? They may not be strapping on a bomb and blowing themselves up, but they’re not that far away from being that person. These people practice a religion and adhere to an ideology that is the complete opposite of what we believe in the United States. We don’t have to change. They have to change. If not, they shouldn’t be let anywhere near our country. It’s pretty obvious that if they haven’t changed by now, they are never going to change.

There is no way for civilized people to co-exist with savage animals who light their daughters on fire. You can call me an Islamophobe all you want, but if this is what that religion represents, then I want no part of it. It’s disgusting. It’s vile. It’s dangerous. There is no place for this anywhere in the world, let alone the United States. To excuse this because it is part of their culture and their religion is ridiculous.

Put terrorism aside. Throwing gay people off high buildings, burning little girls alive and mutilating a woman’s vagina are vile, repulsive and have no place in civilized society. So when the left says you can’t condemn an entire religion because of a few terrorists, tell them this. I condemn those who believe in honor killing, who throw homosexuals off rooftops, who cut up a girl’s sexual organs. I condemn countries that won’t let women drive cars. How about that? Is Saudi Arabia part of that one half of one percent of bad Muslims, or are they good?

Liberals think that as long as Muslims don’t blow themselves up or fly planes into buildings, they’re fine. They’re happy-go-lucky. Happy-go-lucky? In Pakistan, they’re burning their children alive. Think about what that woman did to her own daughter. Choking her out to make her groggy and then soaking her with kerosene and lighting a match to wake her up. This is what a Pakistani woman will do to the person she gave birth to because she doesn’t want to be embarrassed in front of her neighbors.

Pakistan leads the world in honor killings. It’s acceptable there. How is a country that practices Sharia law any different than a fascist, totalitarian regime like Nazi Germany? In a civilized country, religion does not govern. Christianity does not govern. The pope does not set government policy in the 21st century, but in the Muslim world, their imams and religious figures do. In Iran, the Ayatollah is the boss. People were outraged by things Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, but it didn’t matter what he said. Ahmadinejad wasn’t the boss. Ayatollah Khamenei is the boss. He gets his orders from the Prophet.

So save me your only a small percentage of Muslims are bad BS. Remember, we found Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, chilling right down the street from a military base. Pakistan claimed they didn’t know, just like they don’t know about girls being mutilated and set on fire. Honor killing didn’t just start in 2015 and 2016. You can go back years and years and replicate those same numbers. Thousands upon thousands of Pakistanis have tortured and murdered their own family members for marrying the wrong person or helping someone who does.

These are the good Muslims? Why? Because they don’t strap on a bomb and blow themselves up at an airport? That makes these people not terrorists? It makes me a xenophobe or an Islamophobe for pointing out what they do?

Guilty as charged.
