To wonder why so many honour killings happen in Islamic countries when Islam preaches peace?

Also, how could a parent who loves their child consider killing them for honour, or do the people that commit them not really love their children?

In areas most likely to have unrest, where cultures don't mix, they are more than likely to be poorer areas. Colour and culture doesn't seem to matter so much if you're all in the millionaires club.

Hence Muslim extremists are not usually wealthy and neither are BNP members, although not a pre qualifier.

posie, you are either really young and therefore immature or just dim and bigoted.

Silibilimili Tue 13-Nov-12 20:11:08

And I thought you were the more intelligent one in your duo with brycie.

Neither. But again you avoid the question.

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:12:19

I never made such assumptions about you, dear. I had you pegged as a numpty from the off.

Silibilimili Tue 13-Nov-12 20:13:21

Okay, so therefore the problem is money.
So rich fundamentalists are okay are they?!

Now, don't you thjnk the problem is education and class rather than money?!

You see I live in a very densely populated cities, we have a huge Muslim community, really wealthy, loads of private schools with all ethnicities very well represented, the school DS1 will attend has only 50 white children and it's in an affluent area.

I also lived in Leeds and have taught in Bradford, one white school, one mixed and one Muslim boys school.....

Silibilimili Tue 13-Nov-12 20:16:09

Omg. You are a teacher!!!

This gets worse!!

I give up!

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:17:26

I didn't say it was money, I said wealthy people.

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:17:55

No, I'm not a teacher.

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:19:21

And the racist and brown people posts....that you've made up?

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:20:02

Sorry DS1's school has 50% white, not 50 white.

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:21:45

Thing is silly, you make up things that I have not said or implied and then argue with them. What a waste of time.

PosieParker Tue 13-Nov-12 20:22:00

Noone has been racist.
