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.
I sure they just misunderstand Islam.
Sticks and STones ...
WOW, such a SOCIETY of hypersensitive WHINERS.
Well, they were ready to start WORLD WAR III over some LOUSY CARTOONS.
20 years sounds like PRE MEDITATION to me ... FRY HIM for that one
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!
Cain and Able
Wonder what he said that got his brother’s turban in a twist?
[I like one of the comments at the site: “...touchy feely tingly good about it...” LOL]
Islam in Snohomish County
Sounds like more Amish terrorism.
So does that mean it's all right...Doesn't count as a crime...???
“...his brother uttered words about his bride-to-be so terrible the wedding was called off.”
Sounds like an insult I want to learn.
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.
Say WA? Evergreen State ping

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this ping list.
Ping sionnsar if you see a Washington state related thread.
So, if you said something to pi$$ me off 20 years ago, it’s ok for me to kill you?
They drink some really strong koolaid!
Air, Naval, and ground blockade. Let these idiots kill themselves and spare the rest of the world their barbarism.
I wish someone had said them to me before I got married.
“So, if you said something to pi$$ me off 20 years ago, its 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.”
