Honor Killings On The Rise Among Palestinians

Read this fascinating piece about the increase in "honor killings" in the West Bank and Gaza. I've written before about the problems experienced in societies that make paramount concepts of collective shame and collective honor, rather than the Judeo-Christian concepts of right versus wrong or, as Dennis Prager would say, decency versus indecency. And, of course, there is always the victim cult crowd who blames the increase in these honor killings upon Israel, but that's another story for another day.
