Islamic Honor Killings in America On The Rise

There are approximately 25-27 Islamic honor killings in the United States each year, around the world there are more than 5,000. If you aren't familiar, an honor killing is typically carried out by a father against his daughter when he believes she has dishonored the family by somehow violating Shariah Law. Wives are also often the victims of honor killings. "Crimes" include dating non-Muslim men, wearing western clothing, going against the wishes of the men in the house and more.
