Turkish cleric tells CNN men have a right to kill women to save "family honor"

Turkey is considered a "moderate" Muslim state but every year women and girls in Turkey are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
As you can in the CNN report below, women are murdered in Turkey in so-called "honor killings" over divorce, adultery or even for being raped.
Some of the men in the report even justified the barbaric practice and claimed it is their right to kill their wives and daughters.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Sharia laws permits child marriage, forced marriage, child brides, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings, flogging, beheading and stoning.
