Attempted honor killing: Brother shoots sister -- then family celebrates

An Israeli-Arab family, to be specific. Motive: His sister was divorced, and yet was “befriending men.”

Police investigators noted that the attempted murder was meticulously planned. The youth had informed his family members that he was going to murder his sister early Tuesday morning, and then set off to do just that. He headed to the entrance of the village in a vehicle which he had borrowed from his brother, and awaited his sister’s arrival.

The youth then shot his sister, who was startled to see him and proceeded to kick her repeatedly in order to ensure that she was no longer alive…

The young man than informed his family that he had shot his sister and was warmly greeted, hugged and congratulated by his brother and other family members.

She’s still alive; somehow, after being shot and kicked, she had the wherewithal to play dead until the paramedics arrived. Exit question: How do we blame oil for this one?
