As debate rages over a new documentary about the “honor killings” of women by Islamic extremists around the world, former president Jimmy Carter has weighed in — and not on the side of oppressed women.I wonder if he even has anything to say about honor murders in the rest of the Muslim world? Or if he has anything to say about Islam at all? But it's not so strange some leftists leave out serious issues like these, so much as it is terrible.
The film, Honor Diaries, is being denounced by Islamist activists such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — not because the documentary is inaccurate, but because its accurate portrayal of the Muslim persecution of women is so unflattering to the Islamic world.
In the midst of the “honor killing” controversy comes the release of Carter’s new book decrying the abuse of women throughout the world. Well, not quite everywhere around the world: there is one place which, despite a recent 100% increase in the murders of innocent women, does not merit even a single mention in the ex-president’s book — the territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority.
At first glance, this omission might seem strange. Carter, after all, has devoted much of his post-presidential career to speaking out about what he claims is the mistreatment of the Palestinian Arabs by Israel. But for some reason, when it comes to the mistreatment of Palestinian women by fellow-Palestinians, Carter has nothing to say–even in a book that is ostensibly devoted to the problem of violence against women.
