More honor killings, plus an attempt at one

In another Arab honor killing in Israel, a 25-year old woman was murdered, apparently by both parents whose clothes were bloodstained.

This comes in the wake of a family in Ramle that has killed 8 of its women, for the same reason.

Meanwhile, the first Druze beauty pageant contestant in Israel was also the target in a murder plot, according to police. Two cousins were arrested.

One wonders what kind of a society "honors" women so much that they want to murder them.
