EVERETT, Wash. - A 61-year-old man accused of beating his brother to death in Lynnwood told Snohomish County sheriff's detectives it was an honor killing to avenge an insulting remark.

Mehdi M. Matin says more than 20 years ago his brother uttered words about his bride-to-be so terrible the wedding was called off. Both men are from Afghanistan.

Matin was visiting his brother Monday when he repeated the remark.

More islamic insanity. Yet, the President would doubtless defend it...one way, if not another.

It’s a waste of time trying to civilize some people!
This is why their country is a cesspool and likely to stay that way!

And this the liberals call the religion of peace and we should all allow this sh*t to be taught to our kids in school. Cold day in hell when I allow some union school teacher to teach this crap to my kid.

Sounds like an insult I want to learn.

So what did he say? His gal smelled like a goat? She looked like a goat? He'd banged her like he bangs his goat?

I'm betting a goat was involved in this .

There’s loads of homicidal and suicidal nuts in this world and Muslims have the majority of them, you’d think they’d figure out that it might have something to do with the religion.

“So, if you said something to pi$$ me off 20 years ago, it’s ok for me to kill you?”

Well, 20 years ago it was an insult to his sweetheart that he couldn’t marry. Not sure what custom that is, but I’d be pretty pissed if something my brother said kept me from marrying the one I love.

Not sure I would have invited my brother over for a visit. But, perhaps after 20 years he thought they could patch things up. Then the brother hurls the same insult. I don’t know. I guess I’d just tell my brother to take off. But, only 150 years ago in this country - yes, those would be fighting/killing words. Perhaps a more civilized duel?

Now, the “honor killings” of some young girl that wore pants or was raped, those are a different story.

I wonder what the victim said to get his brother so outraged. Perhaps, “Mehdi, don’t marry the slut. She had sex with the entire national soccer team as well as with their camels. She preferred the camels.”
