No honor in killing women
"The statistics of the last ten years have shown that the Arab and the Islamic countries in the Middle East are in the frontline when it comes to the violation of the rights of women, using violence against them, and more dangerously and sadly murdering women on the pretext of combating the family’s and tribe’s honour. Some male members of some families are justifying this cowardly action and uncivilized crime against women by accusing them of being involved in an illegal sexual intercourse or love affair, which are considered as a great and intolerable taboo. Surprisingly, some narrow-minded men in these countries are even disrespecting and undermining the role of civil law and putting themselves in the position of judges and making a deadly judgment on the life of innocent women."
