Honor Killings in Jordan
Some parts of this world are still not fit to live in. The BBC reports that "Parliament in Jordan has overwhelmingly rejected a proposed law imposing harsher punishments for men who kill female relatives in what are known as 'honour killings.'" They also report that there are 5,000 honor killings a year, but it is not clear to me if this is just in Jordan or worldwide. I would assume just in Jordan. In a shocking development, the BBC did not find any way to blame this on Israel.

Note: I spotted this at Little Green Footballs.
