As has been clearly pointed out on prior occasions, honor killings are by no means the domain solely of Islam, nor was the practice invented by Muslims.
Honor killings predate Islam and are performed by many who are not Muslim.
How about we work on exposing the seamy underside of western ignorance?
There are just as many honour killings in India as there are in the worst Middle Eastern countries. Sgt, I ignore your cause mostly because you focus on Muslim honour killings only. This is a global issue that spans all the continents, it's not just a problem with radical Islam. It's an insane-o-womanizer issue.
The status of women in the world is too important to be trivialized by focusing on this one cultural niche. In every country women are beaten to a pulp by their crazy boyfriends, husbands, fathers, uncles, etc. It's called abuse and it knows no borders.
Well, here in the good ol' US of A, we call domestic violence "domestic violence" and the perpatrators of such are ostracized and incarcerated. We do NOT look upon them as acts of honor. (UNLESS, you kick the sh** out of your sister's boyfriend because he beat her. That's honorable in my book! )
But you are 100% right. Everywhere, all cultures, need to STOP hurting our women NOW! But I know, that's like asking the sun not to come up. Yeah, they can be a pain in the arse and push all the wrong buttons but VIOLENCE is NOT acceptable. Just leave before it comes to that.
It most likely will never stop. That is why I have no personal objection to removing those prone to such violence from the gene pool altogether. That includes the women who get violent too. Maybe that's why nobody ever puts me in charge.

My point is that honor killings are not Islamic in nature, period. They are a function of a pre-existing culture which predates Islam, so threads like these do not, as you previously asserted they do, expose the "seamy underbelly" if Islam.

Hm, yes...he obvious focus's soley on Muslims and completely ignores India.
Yes, he may focus on Muslims primarily but even then, I'm pretty sure he's pointing out its not just isolated to them
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Any chance you might also have numbers comparing the number of honor killings perpetrated by Muslims versus those who are not?
Without that kind of data, words like "most" don't really have any meaning.
