"Many of us know" - of course. As to the "honor killings": even if my knowledge was not as up-to-date as that one displayed in #199 "PALESTINIAN - A family affair", I possibly can add some information you both will surely be able to evaluate. First is from a book written in 1956 by S. Exc. Mgr Georges HAKIM, Archévêque de Galilée, "Pages d'Evangile lues en Galilée" (éditions E. Vercruysse-Vanhove, St-André-Bruges), where one can read on page 64: "Il nous est arrivé plusieurs fois d'être le témoin effaré de scènes où toute une délégation de chrétiens venait nous annoncer triomphalement qu'un tel avait enfin tué sa soeur qui se conduisait mal! et avait donc sauvé dans le sang l'honneur de la famille!" ("We happened several times to be the apalled witness of scenes whereby a whole delegation of Christians came to announce that XYZ finally had murdered his sister which had misbehaved! and so had whitewashed with blood the family's honour!"
