Muslim “Honor” crimes: 17,000 victims every year

You know what I love most about multiculturalism, gentle readers?  It’s the cultural enrichment!

Up to 17,000 women in Britain are being subjected to “honour” related violence, including murder, every year, according to police chiefs. And official figures on forced marriages are the tip of the iceberg, says the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).

It warns that the number of girls falling victim to forced marriages, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and even murder by relatives intent on upholding the “honour” of their family is up to 35 times higher than official figures suggest.

Commander Steve Allen, head of ACPO’s honour-based violence unit, says the true toll of people falling victim to brutal ancient customs is “massively unreported” and far worse than is traditionally accepted. “We work on a figure which suggests it is about 500 cases shared between us and the Forced Marriage Unit per year,” he said: “If the generally accepted statistic is that a victim will suffer 35 experiences of domestic violence before they report, then I suspect if you multiplied our reporting by 35 times you may be somewhere near where people’s experience is at.” His disturbing assessment, made to a committee of MPs last week, comes amid a series of gruesome murders and attacks on British women at the hands of their relatives.

Marilyn Mornington, a district judge and chair of the Domestic Violence Working Group, warned that fears of retribution, and the authorities’ failure to understand the problem completely, meant the vast majority of victims were still too scared to come forward for help. In evidence to the home affairs committee, which is investigating the problem, she said: “We need a national strategy to identify the large number of pupils, particularly girls, missing from school registers who have been taken off the register and are said to be home schooled, which leads to these issues. Airport staff and other staff need to be trained to recognise girls who are being taken out of the country.

Almost all victims of the most extreme crimes are women, killed in half of cases by their own husbands. Sometimes murders are carried out by other male relatives, or even hired killers. The fear that many thousands are left to endure honour violence alone may be supported by the disturbing details of the incidence of suicide within the British Asian community. Women aged 16 to 24 from Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi backgrounds are three times more likely to kill themselves than the national average for women of their age.

The human cost of honour crime was vividly captured in a haunting video message from murdered Banaz Mahmood, who revealed how her own father had tried to kill her after she abandoned her arranged marriage and fell in love with another man. In the grainy message she told how he plied her with brandy – the first time she had ever drunk alcohol – pulled the curtains and asked her to turn around.

The 19-year-old fled, but less than a month after making the grainy video on a mobile phone, Banaz was dead. Her naked body was found buried in a yard in Birmingham in 2006, more than 100 miles from her London home. She had been raped and tortured by men hired by her uncle to kill her. Mahmood’s father, uncle and one of her killers were sentenced to a total of 60 years in jail for the murder.

Ain’t multiculturalism just grand!  Don’t you just feel so enriched by it?  Mind you, this is just in Britain.  These figures don’t even include what’s going on in the rest of Christendom, let alone the entire globe.  So where are the blinking feminists when we need them?  At best their protests are token.  Their heart isn’t really in it.  But, hoo boy, they certainly did not make themselves scarce about the Tim Tebow pro-life commercial, now did they!  To the modern day Feminists (read Leftists, that’s all you need to know about them right now) there is a deeper calculus involved in everything they do.  This is how it works:  Tim Tebow is white and christian, which makes him a safe and easy target, while honor killings involve muslims, one of the Left’s “protected classes” (like mascots).  Criticizing Islam, they believe, empowers “white christians” and weakens the Left.  So they ignore it, even if muslim women are being harmed, because there is a far larger issue at play here.  ABORTION.  Today modern Feminism stands for only one thing: pro-abortion– and that means making abortion as frequent and easily accessible as possible.  These witches believe, among other things, that children enslave women to the patriarchy, sex is rape, marriage is slavery, etc.  And because children enslave women to the patriarchy (i.e., dependency on the institution of marriage), every effort must be made to discourage women from having them.  Those pesky children get in the way of careers and women’s “empowerment.”  The abortion racket, as they see it, is the only way to defeat the patriarchy.  And THAT is their ultimate goal.  Abortion is simply a means to that end, for there is no other explanation for the way they prioritize the battles they pick.  When they fail to persuade a young woman to get an abortion, their backup plan is getting her onto the government dole, making the institution of marriage obsolete.  Women need men like fish need a bicycle!  Thus their screeching about Tim Tebow’s pro-life superbowl commercial, but crickets on the slaughter of muslim women for “honor.”  That’s how the mind of these Leftists works.  All these issues they claim to stand for, i.e., sexism, racism, “choice”, gay marriage, etc., are simply wedges by which to undermine and destroy traditional culture and mainstream society as we know it (to them, the “Right”), which they view as the obstacle to their Leftist utopia, free of the patriarchy.  Trust me on this, gentle readers,  I’ve had a front row seat at their circus for most of my life.  This is how the Leftist intelligentsia thinks, and the well-intentioned drones who parrot them just follow blindly, assuming it’s all for the better because it’s just “Liberalism” and everybody knows Liberalism is whirled peas, cotton candy and bunny rabbits.
