Noor Faleh Almaleki dies

Twenty-year old Noor Faleh Almaleki died yesterday after having been deliberately run over by her father in an honor killing. He thought she was too westernized. This evil wasn't perpetrated by the Taliban or al Qaeda. It didn't happen in Iran, Syria or Saudia Arabia. It happened in Arizona.

"The United Nations estimates that every year, 5,000 people become victims of honor killings. Just last year, in Georgia, a father strangled his daughter to death because she was planning a divorce from her husband" (Jihad Watch).

Why is it that Muslims all over the world will go absolutely ballistic and riot over something as stupid as the publication of a few cartoons, but when Muslim fathers slaughter their own daughters the silence is deafening?
