Saudi Cleric Blames Facebook for Father Murdering Daughter

Sugiero has all the details of a Saudi man murdering his daughter over her use of Facebook, but here's a bit about a Muslim cleric's reaction to the honor killing:

A leading Saudi preacher told Al-Arabiya.net that Facebook was a "door to lust" for women and called for it to be blocked to prevent social "strife".

Sheikh Ali al-Maliki said women were posting "revealing pictures" and "behaving badly" on the site, which has become popular with young Saudis.

Thanks to the Hot Air's link thingy.
