Muslim honor killing victim wanted to live like other German girls

At age 16, all Morsal Obeidi wanted was to live the way other girls in Germany do. She paid dearly: Obeidi's brother stabbed her 20 times. Her murder has sparked a renewed debate in Germany about the failure of many immigrant families to integrate into Western society.

Unfortunately, "acting Western" is too often a trigger for dishonor killing.

Personally, I think Islam is too often the trigger for dishonor killings.
