In holy Quran there is no such thing as honor killing

Reader comment on item: Arabs Still Want to Destroy Israel
in response to reader comment: IN HOLY QURAN, THERE NO SUCH THING AS "HONOR KILLING". IT IS A SERIOUS CRIME & MUST BE PUNISHED BY THE LAW OF EVERY COUNTRY.

Mohammed: Do you think these Jihadists are misinterpreting the Quran? There are honor killings going on in America, this was on Fox news the other evening. Two daughters were murdered because they were not wearing traditional clothing for muslim women, and one of the daughters was dating a western man. It is shocking to see two beautiful young women murdered for unjustifiable reasons. The man has been arrested, and will go on trial, but half of his family is gone. What a terrible way to live your life, and not see your children grow up and make you proud.

Yes the bible and the Quran both work in the same way for the believers, but there must be loyalty to the scriptures and God. Committment to following and memorizing the scriptures, should be a way of life. We too have memorized our bible, and apply it to the struggle we are having at that time.

My favorite verse is John 14:6 I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

I also believe the world is birth pains, earthquakes, droughts,floods, apostasy of the churches, famine, severe weather. These are rumblings of things to come. We need to live our lives in peace, and help the underprivileged...

I also love this verse: Revelations 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, A White Horse. And he who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in rightousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called The Word Of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed him on white horses. Now out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And he himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. He has on his robe and on his thigh a name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords....

This is judgement day, The White Throne Judgement, from Kings down to the lowest of men. This is why we need to do good in the world, and stop the killing. Everyone has to answer on this day....
