at the incredible stupidity of some journalists with their reprehensible attempts at moral equivalency.
Case in point is Chris Selley of the 'National Post.' Mr. Selley writes about the efforts of Pamela Geller, of Atlas Shrugs , to place a memorial marker over the grave of Aqsa Parvez, who was brutally murdered (allegedly) by her father and brother in December 2007, at the age of 16, for refusing to wear a hijab and wanting to wear more western styles of apparel.
In his article, Mr. Seller attempts, rather poorly I might add, to equate Ms. Geller's efforts to place a memorial marker over Aqsa's grave as the same as another airline wanting to do the same for someone dying in a plane crash on another carrier. Mr. Seller's contempt for Ms. Geller and others wanting to do this is evident in his writing, as is his refusal to label Aqsa's murder as an 'honor killing', which it was.
Mr. Seller's attitude is so typical of leftists. Any gesture such as what Ms. Geller and others are attempting to do are viewed with disdain, and down right hostility, because it puts on full display their own moral failures, especially towards charity.
Meanwhile, Aqsa's grave is still marked with a steel plate, number 774.
