Are Islamic Honor Killings a Growing Threat in America?
by Ray Nothstine
With a Muslim family in Texas charged last week with the murders of a Christian Iranian activist and young man who they blame for converting their daughter to Christianity, some wonder if Islamic honor killing is a growing threat in America.
Experts had differing opinions about whether "honor killing" is a growing threat in the U.S. and if Shariah, or Islamic, law is the cause of such murders.
Clare Lopez, vice president for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, told The Christian Post, "People need to be concerned about this (honor killings) and law enforcement needs to be better educated and concerned as well."
