Honour Killings

I'd actually wanted NOT to blog on Islamists for a day or too, but the outrages won't stop coming. The latest is from Jordan where a man shot dead his sister after seeing her photo on his friend's camera phone. Let me repeat that- he murdered his sister because someone took her photo. He said he did it to "cleanse his family honour" and turned himself over to the police. According to the article this is the fifth honour killing in Jordan this year, while there were nineteen last year.

Under Jordanian law, the murderer faces a maximum jail sentence of one year.

Religion of Peace?
