Following up on the Hassan murder,
In the Mumbai massacre, Muslim terrorists tortured and mutilated living beings and perhaps corpses as well. Perhaps they wanted to render their hated victims “deader than dead” as has been suggested in a recent Symposium in Frontpage in which I participated. Simple death was not enough to render their victims powerless. A beheading suggests that the murderer wants to separate his victim’s mind from her body, he does not want to hear what she has to say, he wants her mute, beyond what duct tape can do and he wants her completely severed, disassociated from her ability to flee.
But this honor killing in Buffalo is very important for another reason.

You must read Phyllis’s excellent article at Middle East Quarterly, Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?
Particularly relevant: the case-by-case comparison.
