Kingston honour-killing trial...

...gets down to brass tacks as accused invokes "Will of Allah"...dead, dead, dead, dead

"In a back-and-forth exchange that electrified a packed courtroom, a Canadian-Afghan entrepreneur accused of murdering three of his teenaged daughters and his first wife denied the charge, but nonetheless insisted that what had happened was God’s will, and that the four women deserved to die."
And, unbelievably, much like O.J. Simpson... Mohammad Shafia tries to portray himself as the victim here...dead, dead, dead, dead
Some of the answers Mohammad Shafia gave to co-prosecutor Laurie Lacelle left a couple of jurors rolling their eyes in disbelief. In a cold, testy cross-examination, he was told flat-out he was a liar.

Afghan entrepreneur! Isn’t that so sweet and kind of our multi cultural sensitive respectable considerate “honourable” justice system. And here I thought this guy was a Canadian meaning that he could speak one of our official languages. Call me what you want but I think the first mistake was letting this guy become a Canadian citizen.

Curiously, I wonder if he is being tried by a jury of his peers? If so we would need more Afghan entrepreneurs!

Don't you just love it when the brutal, terrorizing man blames the victims. The only cruelty that was inflicted was by him on his helpless, female victims. What a shameful chain of events. Social services failed, school failed, the community failed and his peers failed those children and wife. You have got to ask the big question - how many of the men in his inner circle of friends and family knew of this man's perversion and secretly or worse - led the cheerleading for this behaviour. Shameful - where is the peaceful, loving, kindness in this culture. I am waiting ...

I can't wait for the classic outburst of Alluh Akbar when the verdict is read out.

... no doubt the MSM would edit out the comment .

These critters are not playing at evil, they are the embodiment of it and further to that, they are proud of it.

Already heard his brother on the news saying how is brother is innocent and that justice will out. What a bunch of creeps.

I gather a lot of imans last Friday denounced "honour killings", but I would have liked to hear their exact full sermons and not just a media summary that they supposedly told their followers not to think Islam means women are not to be valued.
