The term “Honor Killing’ has now joined the list of unacceptable phraseology in our vastly growing lexicon of misspeak. Islamic organizations throughout Western nations are objecting to the use of that word, claiming it is racist and Islamophobic. The outcry by American Muslims has been so strong that even the FBI has knuckled under the politically correct speech code and changed its terminology on a wanted poster seeking the arrest of one Yasser Abdel Said who is alleged to have murdered his daughter. Many women’s groups have come out in support of condemning the term as they claim it detracts from the real issue, which to them is domestic violence perpetrated by “the patriarchy”.

These are usually crimes of avarice or passion.
