  1. A true misnomer, there is no honor in killing one’s family member or members. Only a perverted sense of righteousness and justice to satisfy age old cultural and ‘religious’ concepts. In these cases no one wins anything just more depravity, suffering end mental anguish. No one wins and every one loses. However when groups of people are trapped in a 7th century culture we in the west will hardly if ever convince them to modify or change their barbaric self destructive behavior.
