Honor killings on the rise
by David Martin
In Texas last year, a horrible 911 call came from two sisters.
"Oh my god! I'm dying. What's wrong ma'am? I'm bleeding everywhere," one of them is heard screaming.
The father is the accused killer. His reason? They were dating boys.
"Most Westerners wouldn't understand that and wouldn't even believe that people think that way," says Robert Spencer, founder of JihadWatch.org.
His website attempts to raise awareness about the activities of global jihadists. One of those activities is what's called honor killings, a practice which has its roots in the Middle East, and is now happening in the West.
