In Al-Aqsa Mosque Address, Palestinian Cleric ‘Issam Amira Encourages Honor Killings




Published on Oct 10, 2018

In an address delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh 'Issam Amira said that Muslims are "undergoing a major crisis regarding the honor of their womenfolk," which he said is being "targeted" more than their lives or property. Pointing to social media, TV, and women leaving the house without male chaperones as examples of the "obliteration" of women's honor in Palestine, he encouraged men to say to their female relatives: "We are ready to die defending your honor, but at the same time, we are ready to kill you if you take your honor lightly." The address was posted on the Internet on September 21, 2018.
