Gender imbalance and Muslim countries

The Astute Blogger (via Soccerdad and Atlas Shrugs) shows how many countries with largely Muslim populations are also where there's far more men than women, as a new pocket book from the Economist discovers (there are maps here with the areas shown in red). As explained here:
Of the thirty (30) nations on the list (being the thirty with the greatest IMBALANCE, with far more men than women - and far more than might be expected if there were no intervention - 20 of them are predominantly Muslim (or with a very large Muslim segment of the population).
And this could also be part of what leads to a lot of the indoctrination to suicide bombing in the Muslim world. It also appears to be the fault of honor murders, as explained here:
If there were no correlation between this imbalance and Islam then we would expect that there would be fewer Muslim nations on the chart which shows the nations with imbalances which favor men, and more on the chart which shows nations with imbalances which favor women. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that there is some relationship betweeen Islam and gender-imbalances in the national populations which favor men.

Could it be female infanticide? Or "honor killings?" Some people think so - at least they think that the horrific practice is very widespread. These charts lend credence to them. ALSO: this imbalance may reveal what is at the core of the current "clash of civilizations." The propensity of certain nations and cultures and religions to produce disproportionately more terrorists, and specifically the propensity for Islam to produce jihadoterrorism might be related to the fact that their culture promotes the devaluation females and femininity and subjugates women - turning them into chattel, making them the property of husbands who have many wives.
This reminds me that it's a good thing that in Europe now, they're beginning to give attention to the serious problem involving honor murders, as I call them, which have been taking place there for some time now. As explained here:
Islamic radical groups are filling the vacuum. ''The most alarming thing they teach is that violence is an acceptable way to enforce religious views or social customs," Uensal said. ''Much of that violence is against women."
Indeed it is. At least two murder victims spoken about in the above article (via The Uncooperative Blogger) had their lives taken from them in situations in which they agreed to talk to the family relatives. Which is why the following steps will have to be taken:

1] If there's to be any meeting at all, it should be under tight scrutiny and security backup, making sure they relatives are carrying no weapons. Or, 2] Don't fall for the bait, and don't meet with them at all. Period. And 3]if any danger is sensed in the arrival of a relative who may be up to no good, the targets should stay out of sight and also contact the authorities immediately.

On an almost similar note, in China, it's also quite angering that they're still keeping on with one-child birth control policy, especially at the cost of the women, and that too is something that's going to have to be stopped.
