The world is watching Canada's verdict against honour killing

Canadians transfixed by the Shafia honor killing story have the world looking over their shoulders. Have they drawn a line and said NO MORE?  Who will back off and who will stand fast?

An Islamic site, debates the difference between "honor killing" and "femicide", hating the act but saddened that it has been linked to Islam.  The Daily Mail headlines "You have no place in civilized society."  And The Guardian. "Cold-blooded, shameful, twisted case".   (Also Reuters , and )
From a site dedicated against honour killing:
The caption:  "Notice the man's face is protected and the victims of these "honor" murders are always beautiful."
Think about it:  the guy's faced is blocked out.  There are many photos at this site.
