    According to some on here it's none of our business, we shouldn't concern ourselves with these cultural differences, and as Billy Joel sang so eloquently "We didn't start the fire".

    "Khan's ethnicity -- he is an ethnic Pashtun, while Zeenat was a Punjabi -- was the main cause of the family's disapproval, according to the woman's family."

    Well, there you go. It's like, duh. Of course burning alive was called for.

    Where's the United Nations on this? Is Pakistan threatening to revoke money if it gets on the list of human rights abuses? Or is that only Saudi Arabia?

    When did the UN become such a den of human rights abusers?

    Islamic State( ISIS ) group executed 19 Yezidi girls who refused to be sex slaves by burning them alive inside iron cages, news site ARA News reported.

    "The 19 girls were burned to death while hundreds of people were watching. Nobody could do anything to save them from the brutal punishment," a witness said.

    The ISIS jihadists took over 3,000 Yezidi girls as sex slaves after they overran Sinjar in northwest Iraq in August 2014, causing a mass displacement of nearly 400,000 people to Duhok and Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan. The ISIS continues to hold about 1,800 abducted Yezidi women and girls in Iraq and Syria, according to Kurdistan regional government officials.

    It's not a case of f someone else did then you're all good, it's simply pointing out the hypocrisy in calling Obama out for something that his predecessor is not being called out on.

    Either call people on their actions fairly or not at all. To do less is intellectually dishonest.

    So while it does indeed suck that during obama's 8 years three weddings have been destroyed, it is worse that in Bush's 7 years five weddings were destroyed. Both are bad.

    One thing I know is you don't call a Mexican a Puerto Rican and vice versa. Call a person from Spain a Mexican and they might bust out a shiv right no the spot. Call a Cuban a Mexican and they'll likely have a voodoo doll made up of you in an hour.

    I think you got that backwards. The actual law is, "We didn't care when guys did it before, but since we don't like the current guy, we're really upset that he does it, too!!"

    It happens. The only reason I pointed it out was because there's a tendency to treat the entire Muslim world—from Morocco to Indonesia—and being a single bloc of people, when it's actually huge regions comprising different points of view, wealth, and cultures.

    So, the people in Pakistan-Afghanistan-India have a distinct culture of familial honor that is very different from Egyptians—though the Wahabbis of Saudi Arabia seem intent on making this kind of violent discord inherent to the religion.

    The great danger is that we attempt to flatten these differences, making it easier for sectarian cultists like ISIS to make in-roads beyond their original region.

    Hah.

    Welcome to corrupted religion.

    Party tribal/traditional reinforced by religion = approved, make it socially expected, murder.

    Such things happen in Christian families in US too, rarely and been a long time since last, but do.
