Jordan is the moderate Muslim country where the Parliament declined on Islamic grounds to stiffen penalties for honor killings. From UPI, with thanks to Chris:
A Jordanian father stabbed his teenage daughter to death in the latest crime of honor in Jordan, security sources said Monday.
The source said the crime occurred Sunday in the region of Marka, east of Amman, where a father stabbed his daughter 30 times before turning himself in to police….
The incident was the ninth crime committed in Jordan this year under the pretext of defending honor.
