Killing Women for Family and Community "Honor"
In Ramleh, 8 women from one family were killed for family and community honor. This latter kind of murder is a new one: it is when those murdering the woman are not family members, but unrelated men who take it upon themselves to do the job that the woman's family has failed to do. This article touches on the complex factors that are making the Palestinian women in Israel vulnerable to such attacks. It's more than culture.
