August 11, 2009, Fox News reports the story of a teen that fled her home in Ohio to Florida in fear of her life. She is from a family who is of the Islamic faith. Because the girl converted to Christianity, she fears being a victim of an honor killing. Is the fear of honor killing real? According to Mark Kelly, writer for the Baptist Press in Nashville and the International Christian Concern, just one year ago a Saudi Arabian government official cut his daughters tongue out and burned her to death because she found Christianity through the internet.
Hate crime laws have come to the forefront in our nation in the last ten years to protect people of color and sexual orientation through the United States court systems. Laws are being fashioned to protect citizens from these crimes, however, there does not seem to be any language included that is directed to the Muslim faith. Just three years ago NPR reported that the Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi ambassador to the United States, addresses a luncheon in Chicago, April 20, 2006. He has assured U.S. audiences that the Kingdom has "eliminated what might be perceived as intolerance" from its old textbooks.
If that is true why is a teenager running for her life. We are a nation who wants to protect its citizen and allow them to worship whichever God or religious entity that they desire. Why is the Islamic faith allowed to teach death to the infidel—anyone who does not accept the Muslim belief system? One may argue they are not acting on the instruction, another may argue 9/11. The question is, “if we are legislating against hate crimes based upon hate speech, why does the legislation document voted on July 23, 2009 in the Senate not include a zero tolerance from the Muslim doctrine against non-Muslim believers?
