2013 saw rise in honor murders by Muslims in Judea/Samaria

Last year was a pure horror for women living under the PLO's sharia:
A Gaza teen stabbed to death by her brother while she prayed in her room has become the latest addition to a grim statistic: Palestinian women killed by relatives, often for allegedly shaming the family.

Twenty-six women were slain by relatives in the West Bank and Gaza in 2013, twice as many as the year before
, according to official figures. The rise stems from mounting economic difficulties in the Palestinian territories, compounded by ongoing leniency for those killing in the name of “family honor” and social acceptance of violence against women, women’s rights activists said Wednesday.
Here's where an obscene lie comes into the AP Wire's report. "Economic difficulties" is just a pathetic cover for the Koran's beliefs, and it only suggests the AP sees nothing wrong with that.
They urged Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to repeal sections of a penal code that allows for short sentences of at most a few years for the perpetrators. Abbas suspended one article of the code in 2011, but others remain on the books, said Hanan Ashrawi, a senior PLO official and former legislator.
I'm sure the penal code suspension's been lifted since.
Ashrawi said she has repeatedly urged Abbas to adopt legal reforms, especially of articles that discriminate against women, but so far to no avail. She said she last met with Abbas in November, but that he referred the matter again to his legal adviser.

She said that male politicians often brush aside women’s concerns, with the argument that more important issues are at stake, such as ending Israeli occupation and establishing a Palestinian state.
But that's what she too cares about, far more than honor murders, and it's clear they have no interest in making that clearer to anybody.
