Canada: Muslim migrant couple threatens their daughter with honor killing, won’t be deported


A Syrian refugee couple who threatened their adult daughter with an honour killing for dating a Canadian man have made a plea deal with New Brunswick prosecutors that will save them from possible deportation back to their war-ravaged homeland. Their words were taken literally instead of figuratively their lawyer said. How does he know that the Ayoubs didn't mean what they said to their daughter? There are 200 to 300 honor murders in Syria every year. But because the very idea of honor killing is virtually inconceivable to non-Muslims in Western countries, they make benign assumptions such as this. And so the Ayoubs will not be deported.
