Chechnya: Honor Killings Have President Ramzan Kadyrov’s Stamp of Approval

Islam brings a whole new despicable meaning to the term chauvinist pig.
Islamic pig otherwise known as Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov’s take on honor killings…

GROZNY, Russia – The bullnecked president of Chechnya emerged from afternoon prayers at the mosque and with chilling composure explained why seven young women who had been shot in the head deserved to die.

Ramzan Kadyrov said the women, whose bodies were found dumped by the roadside, had “loose morals” and were rightfully shot by male relatives in honor killings.

“If a woman runs around and if a man runs around with her, both of them are killed,” Kadyrov told journalists in the capital of this Russian republic.

Some in Russia say Kadyrov’s attempt to create an Islamic society violates the Russian constitution, which guarantees equal rights for women and a separation of church and state. But the Kremlin has given him its staunch backing, seeing him as the key to keeping the separatists in check, and that has allowed him to impose his will.

Kadyrov describes women as the property of their husbands and says their main role is to bear children. He encourages men to take more than one wife, even though polygamy is illegal in Russia. Women and girls are now required to wear headscarves in all schools, universities and government offices.

Rights activists fear that Kadyrov’s approval of honor killings may encourage men to carry them out. Honor killings are considered part of Chechen tradition. No records are kept, but human rights activists estimate dozens of women are killed every year.

Islam and human rights –oil and water.

    When you start really digging, Chechnya is one of those places, the name of which keeps coming up — Islamic extremism, unrest, narcotics trafficking, training ground for jihadis, center for organized crime. Theoretically, the United States is against these things. Russia has complained that the United States in fact supports these things, provided that the victim is Russia.

    My suggestion: go deeper than the honor killings. That’s the only way to find out why this guy is tolerated.

    By the way, as a sibling of apes and pigs, I find the drawing you posted comparing us to Mohammed insulting — we’ve never been that bad. 🙂
