PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP)– Relatives have shot dead three women in a lawless tribal area of northwest Pakistan after one of them left her husband, officials said Monday.

The "honour" killings happened in Jawaki village in the Darra Adam Khel district, between the cities of Peshawar and Kohat.

A 22-year-old woman from Karachi who married a Jawaki shopkeeper about two years ago was accused of fleeing her husband's house and marrying another man in the northwestern Swat valley with the help of her aunt and cousin, a local administration official told AFP.

The local tribal council or jirga intervened in the matter and decided on Sunday that the women should be killed.

Relatives shot the three dead at their house late Sunday and buried them on Monday morning, he added.

"It is a case of honour killings and was settled under tribal customs where the Pakistani criminal code is not applicable," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

"According to the information gathered from local sources, the girl was not happy with her husband."

Local intelligence officials confirmed the killings.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan says 943 women and girls were murdered in 2011 after being accused of tarnishing their families' honour.

The statistics highlight the violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens.

DeMint explains American exceptionalism to Vladimir Putin

DeMint shot back that while all people are created equal, all countries are not.

In a letter to Putin dispatched Friday, DeMint offered the Russian president an explanation of American exceptionalism, thanking him for “shining an international spotlight” on the issue, and highlighting why Russia does not meet such criteria.

“America is an exceptional nation—that is, one like no other, not just now but in history—because it is dedicated to the universal principle of human liberty,” DeMint wrote.“This is grounded in the truth that all men—not just Americans—are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights by their Creator. As a British admirer of America, G.K. Chesterton, once put it:‘America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed.’ We are, in other words, not a nation based on ethnicity, but on beliefs, and not coincidentally, that is why we attract people of all ethnicities and they become proud Americans.”

DeMint recalled America’s participation in World War II and the Cold War, going on to explain that America remains committed to the “principle of equality under the law in our Constitution and remain dedicated to it.”

DeMint added that he is including a booklet from the Heritage Foundation about the American exceptionalism to “further the conversation.”

Abstract: America shares many traits with other countries, but it also has characteristics that set it apart and give it a role to play and a national identity that no other country has. Most important are the founding ideas of classical liberalism, political democracy, and economic freedom...
Thank you to the Federalist Society chapters here in Rhode Island for inviting me to speak on the question,“Is America an exceptional nation?”
This idea of American exceptionalism actually has many roots and many variations. One is the old Puritan concept, based on a John Winthrop sermon, that America is a “city upon a hill.” This concept of America as “God’s country” or the new “Promised Land” later became secularized and mixed with ideas of liberty derived from the American Revolution.
... When Presidents Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy talked about America as a “city on a hill,” they meant that it had a special role to play in safeguarding freedom in the world.

Why is America Exceptional?
By Matthew Spalding, Ph.D.

Every nation derives meaning and purpose from some unifying quality—an ethnic character, a common religion, a shared history. The United States is different. America was founded at a particular time, by a particular people, on the basis of particular principles about man, liberty, and constitutional government.

The American Revolution drew on old ideas. The United States is the product of Western civilization, shaped by Judeo-Christian culture and the political liberties inherited from Great Britain.
...
As the English writer G. K. Chesterton famously observed, "America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed." That creed is set forth most clearly in the Declaration of Independence, by which the American colonies announced their separation from Great Britain. The Declaration is a timeless statement of inherent rights, the proper purposes of government, and the limits on political authority.
The American Founders appealed to self-evident truths, stemming from "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," to justify their liberty. This is a universal and permanent standard. These truths are not unique to America but apply to all men and women everywhere. They are as true today as they were in 1776.

America's principles establish religious liberty as a fundamental right. It is in our nature to pursue our convictions of faith. Government must not establish an official religion, just as it must guarantee the free exercise of religion. Indeed, popular government requires a flourishing of religious faith. If a free people are to govern themselves politically, they must first govern themselves morally.

President Obama Will Negotiate with The Taliban, Bashar Assad, Syria, Russia and Now Iran
...
But Not With Republicans ...

Posted on September 16, 2013 by sundance

Think about this carefully.

President Obama will negotiate with the al-Qaeda Taliban in Afghanistan;

he will support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt;

he has officially engaged in negotiations with Vladimir Putin (Russia) over Syria;

he has proclaimed a diplomatic approach toward Syrian WMD and even Iranian nuclear ambitions,…

... but he calls any congressional member who would advocate for a balanced budget, reductions in size of government, or fiscal prudence,”Terrorists”.
