Faten Habash's father wept as he assured his daughter there would be no more beatings, no more threats to her life and that she was free to marry the man she loved, even if he was a Muslim.

hey you found a nut case, good for you, now how many muslims subscribe to honor killings, beatings of women, and executions for being raped?

From your link---

The family priest, Father Ibrahim Hijazin, declined to talk about Faten's killing other than to say he called the Palestinian authorities to prevent her from reaching Jordan. But he says other families would have reacted as hers did. "There is no interfaith marriage among Arabs. Catholics here are Christian by faith and Muslim by culture, and in this community it is forbidden for Christians to marry Muslims. It's not good. It's a tribal mentality. I don't accept it, but it is the culture," he said.

Never mind my curiosity. Why, in the name of Zeus's butthole, do you feel the need to defend Islam?

Why do you think I'm "defending" Islam?

I think the wording was pretty clumsy but the assignment all rings true and it even denigrates radical Islam in a way.

Historically and currently, the assignment is accurate.
