While we are on the topic of the subjugation of women and honor killings – it is a good opportunity to educate ourselves on the plight of women in the United Kingdom. As you may remember there are 84+ Islamic courts in Britain. The problem with the Sharia courts is decisions are made from the intrinsic Islamic belief that women are not equal to men. Thus, Muslim women under Sharia suffer discrimination. It has become such a large problem that Lady Cox has introduced a woman’s rights bill into the British Parliament.
Thousands of honour attacks in Britain last year
Nearly 3,000 so-called honour attacks were recorded by police in Britain last year, according to new research that attempts to provide the most complete picture of the problem to date.

Figures obtained by the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (Ikwro), reveal that at least 2,823 incidents of “honour-based” violence took place, with the highest number recorded in London.
The charity said the statistics do not give the full picture of the levels of “honour” violence in the UK, but are the best national estimate so far.
The data, taken from 39 out of 52 UK forces, was released following a freedom of information request by Ikwro, the BBC reported. In total, eight police forces recorded more than 100 honour-based attacks in 2010.
The Metropolitan Police saw 495 incidents, followed by 378 in the West Midlands, 350 in West Yorkshire, 227 in Lancashire and 189 in Greater Manchester.
