Jordanian Man Charged in Honor Killing

JORDAN--A Jordanian man has been charged with killing his 35-year-old sister when she was released from detention over allegedly having sex outside marriage, a judicial official said today.

"The suspect, in his 40s, was charged on Sunday with premeditated murder after fatally shooting his sister five times in Zarqa," northeast of Amman, the official told AFP.

"She had been in administrative detention since February over a fornication case. Apparently she had (sexual) relations with a man who took advantage of her and pretended he wanted to marry her."

Murder is punishable by death in Jordan but in so-called "honour killings" courts can commute or reduce sentences, particularly if the victim's family asks for leniency.

Between 15 and 20 women are murdered in such killings each year in the Arab kingdom, despite government efforts to curb such crimes.

Separately, the official said a 35-year-old man was charged with premeditated murder for slitting the throat of his wife's alleged lover, 26, before cutting off his penis in central Amman on Saturday.

"He handed himself in to police on the same day of the murder and confessed, giving them a bag that had the other man's penis. He was charged with premeditated murder," said the official. (Source)

I just can't understand the muslim moral, they say the sharia law is needed to "correct" the wetern culture, but wait a minute, Aren't the Muslims countries the one in the 3th world? why is that with so much oil and gas, etc? i know a country is not mesured by it's money because that's not all that matter but is the way to "fix" us beating women (sura 4:34), hanging homosexuals (Iran) or stoning ppl (all the countries which names finish on "stan") the way Islam brings "rightouness" is trought represion, then actually any doctrine can do that (i.e North Corea=Atheism) or ancient catholic church here in Spain with the inquisition.
I hope one day muslims can see the satanic nature of Islam which as the bible says comes to deceive,kill and destroy.

Sharia is stupid! So what's the deal when a muslim man cheats on his wife...or all four of them?

Well according to Christianity a muslim who has four wives would be commiting adultery and cheats on all of his wives...with his wives I think? Uhh weird, What a vicious circle of adultery.

Ok... so if I read this right... he "had a bag with the other man's penis in it".

Wow... I know "an eye for an eye" is old testament and new testament says, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone", "judge not lest ye be judged", and "if someone slaps you on the cheek offer them the other one..."

but cutting off the guy's penis and putting it in a bag ... I have to say my ability to "turn the other cheek" is pretty difficult.

Let's put all that aside for a moment and realize he KILLED HIS OWN SISTER!!

I dunno man. That's a pretty despicable human being. I don't care what their religious defense is.
