The Organization, SIOA

NEW YORK, July 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The human rights group Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) has launched a new campaign on taxicabs in Chicago to educate the American people about the horrors of honor killing.

The SIOA ads on Chicago taxis feature photos of honor killing victims with the question, “Is your family threatening you?” and the URL of the SIOA website

While Muslims are not the sole perpetrators of honor killings, a recent survey showed that 91 percent of honor killings worldwide are committed by Muslims, and 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims.

The urgency of raising awareness about honor killing was underscored last week when a Muslim actress who starred in the Harry Potter films, Afshan Azad, was badly beaten by her father and brother in an attempted honor murder. She was dating a non-Muslim.

A manual of Islamic law approved by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates that “retaliation is obligatory… against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” In other words, Islamic law mandates no penalty for a parent who kills his child.
