NADZ FROM EGYPT SUMS UP DAY'S EVENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Nadz from Egypt summarizes events in the Middle East -

Yeah, we really love honor killing.

A survey by a university in Turkey has shown almost 40% support for the practice of "honour killing".

Those sluts have it coming - they can't have control over their own vaginas or all hell will break loose. Of course, we're mostly men, so we won't ever have the fear of getting our throats cut, but no matter!"

"Of course, some of us sensitive Turkish guys just want to mutilate you, not kill you:"

When asked the appropriate punishment for a woman who has committed adultery,

37% replied she should be killed.
Twenty-five percent said that she deserved divorce
21% that her nose or ears should be cut off

.... It's a reminder that "honour killing" - a practice where women are murdered for allegedly bringing shame on their family - still has significant support in parts of Turkey.

Since the penal code was reformed last summer a man can no longer claim he was provoked as his defence. That used to lead to light sentences.

But last Friday a court in Istanbul sent a man to prison for life for murdering his sister in her hospital bed. He shot her for giving birth to a child outside marriage.

What sweeties.

In other news, a murderous dictator is finally on trial, much to the chagrin and humilation of AlJazeera, with their typically anti-American coverage of events.

It's pathetic, really, the attitude that some Arabs have towards this trial. It seems that because Saddam is an Arab leader, people feel obligated to sympathize with him. He's "one of our guys" who "stood up to the West", and is now on trial by "foreigners". Beneath all of these supposed concerns about poor, cuddly Saddam getting a fair trial (which he will) is an idiotic mentality that compels people to shed crocodile tears for a mass murderer.

Never mind that Saddam has killed, tortured and ruined the lives of countless Arabs, his own citizens. Never mind that he was an autocrat, a sadist who gassed thousands of innocents, an all-round asshole. To the pundits at al-Jazeera, he's "our asshole".

It's depressing. How ridiculously anti-American do you have to be to defend this monster just because he's an enemy to the US? As an American, I'm happy to see Saddam standing trial for his crimes. As an Arab, I'm happy to see Saddam standing trial for his crimes. Anything else would be criminal.
