Has anyone noticed how most of the reported honor killings occur in troubled countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Jordan and the Palestinian territory, or among people from those places? We rarely hear of them occurring in the UAE or Qatar. Is it because those latter places are rich and prosperous?
Actually, it's more likely the other way around. It's because honor killings and other forms of violence almost never occur in those countries that they have become rich and prosperous.
Peace is good for the country. Violence, including those within the family, disrupts society and causes nothing but destruction and desolation.
