MURDER IN THE NAME OF HONOR: No fewer than 5,000 women and girls are executed in honor killings every year. The majority take place in the Middle East but many occur in Muslim immigrant communities of Europe, America, and Canada.
In TURKEY, that bastion of ‘moderate’ Islam trying to join the European Union, a woman can be murdered for trying to get a divorce. And it’s all honkey dorey under the laws of Islam.
