As per usual, more intent on vilifying the west than facts. You mention certain episodes and equate them with honour killings, and ask what is the difference. Well the difference is simple.

Such acts in the west are denounced by all right thinking people, across the board, and cutting across religious and cultural lines. A man kills his wife in a drunken rage (NO Muslim would ever get drunk of course) That is denounced by all. When Muslims commit acts of atrocity, and so called honour killings are acts of barbarism, the silence from the right thinking, peace loving Muslim majority is deafening. It is much more usual to blame the police, claim it was someone else (probably a Jew) or a CIA/MI5 plot, or it simply never happened at all. Oh Yes Osama Bin Laden is really a nice chap, kind to children and dogs. That is the truth, and the worth of your diatribe.
