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. 

We've seen honor killings happen all over the country and methods used to carry out the murders have ranged from running them over with cars, shootings to beheadings. 

Now, according to a new report from the Department of Justice, honor killings in the U.S. are on the rise.
