Dishonor Of Honor Killing

There is a term used in many Muslim nations which goes  by the name of “honor killing.” The assumption is that murdering another person is an act of “honor.” Of course, this term only refers to the murder of a female Muslim and is never used to explain the murder of a male Muslim. Yesterday in Jordan, police found the body of a pregnant woman whose throat had been slit, her belly cut open and a dead four month old fetus lay next to the mother. The police were convinced this murder related to some aspect of “dishonor” to a family.

We humans go to war over many issues, some make sense and some are nonsense. We humans kill innocent men, women and children in the name of “honoring our nation” by renoving from this planet those who threaten our nation. I am not a profound thinker, just an ordinary man, but somehow I doubt if there is such an entity as a “God” it or he or she would believe the death of this woman was an act of “honor.”
