Killed in the Name of the Koran

Cultural Enrichment News

The following news story comes from Munich. If you follow the link to the German original and look at the links to related stories, you’ll find that it’s just one of many similar cultural enrichment articles published in the newspaper. I could probably fill up this space with such stories every day, and still not have enough time to include them all.

Many thanks to Thorin for the translation:

“Honor killing” in Munich: My daddy stabbed my mummy to death

Girl (3) had to watch the murder of her own mother

Little Sahar (3) is sitting in her relative’s living room in Munich Obersendling. She’s playing silently with plasticine and makes colorful balls and figures. But her child’s eyes are apathetic, far away.

Sahar is still unaware how much the last hours have changed her life. She’s the surviving victim of a terrifying slaughter. The survivor of an “honor killing” — done in the name of the Koran.

It was on the night before Monday, shortly before midnight. Nesima had been quarreling with her husband Zafar (27) for months. Both are originally from Afghanistan; Nesima has grown up in Munich.

In 2004 she was forced into a marriage with Zafar, and her daughter Sahar was born. But when Zafar came to Munich seeking asylum in the end of 2008, Nesima was already living with another man from Afghanistan — his cousin.

The murder was committed in the apartment of Nesima’s niece Sayenab (20). Both were living in the same block of flats. Nesima was on a visit when her husband suddenly knocked violently at the door and shouted: “Open up!”

When Nesima thought he was gone she left the apartment together with her daughter. But then suddenly her husband came out of the dark corridor and was walking towards her.

“I have called the police,” said Nesima. Then Zafar grabbed her by the wrist and stabbed her with his knife, again, and again, and again.

Eyewitness Sayenab said: “She screamed so terribly. He pulled her into the apartment, into the bathroom.” Nesima broke down bleeding in front of the bathtub, but the husband was still stabbing like mad.

“Doing this he looked into the eyes of his daughter. So I grabbed the girl and fled with her to the balcony.”

Nesima died shortly afterwards in hospital, and her husband delivered himself to the police. He confessed the murder immediately, without remorse, and said: “ The Koran gives me the right to kill my wife, if she’s in love with another man.”

“ The Koran gives me the right to kill my wife, if she’s in love with another man.”

One could only wish that the words usually ascribed to British General Napier about the practice of suttee were also applied to so-called "honor killings":

You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.

NAIROBI, Kenya, July 20 (Compass Direct News) – Muslim extremists early this morning killed a Christian convert in Mahadday Weyne, Somalia, 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of Mogadishu.

Al Shabaab Islamist rebels shot Mohammed Sheikh Abdiraman to death at 7 a.m., eyewitnesses told Compass. They said the Islamic extremists appeared to have been hunting the convert from Islam, and when they found him they did not hesitate to shoot him.

The sources told Compass that Abdiraman was the leader of an underground “cell group” of Christians in Somalia.

“We are very sad about this incident, and we also are not safe,” one eyewitness said by telephone. “Pray for us.”

The sources were too distraught to share more details about Abdiraman’s death. Another eyewitness who requested anonymity said Abdiraman had been a Christian for 15 years. He is survived by two children, ages 15 and 10. His wife died three years ago due to illness.

Intent on “cleansing” Somalia of all Christians, al Shabaab militia are monitoring converts from Islam especially where Christian workers had provided medical aid, such as Johar, Jamame, Kismayo and Beledweyne, sources said. Mahadday Weyne, 22 kilometers (14 miles) north of Johar, is the site of a former Christian-run hospital.

CONVERT FROM ISLAM SHOT DEAD

There is more brutality in the article. We cannot imagine the state these people live in.

The never ending saga of the brutality of Muslims following the Koran, is what is so revealing of Islam.

I guess that was back in the 19th century when westerners still had the guts not to be dhimmis. Just picture Brown, Sarkozy or Obamaham quote Napier. Ain't gonna happen!
Today it is all about Global Appeasement Inc.™

INCOMING!!!!!!! said...

I think our so callwed reps, perps, have decided that they can safely abandon us back in the stone age with these guys.

But they are wrong.

The whole immigration scam is just what we did to the Chinese with opium. We don't want the immigrants but we're going to get them anyway because it strips away our wealth and destroys our social fabric.

However all we need to do is get back to basic democratic practices and sweep the whole lot away.

Stay awake & Heads up.

"If you follow the link to the German original and look at the links to related stories, you’ll find that it’s just one of many similar cultural enrichment articles"

And that is exactly what is so important for people to realize. The extent of these crimes. That it is happening all over Europe. In a massive scale. Especially in countries like Germany and Sweden.

We dont see many Cultural Enrichment stories from Sweden. Germany - New Turkey - is probably bad. But if Sweden had a free press I'll bet that she would show to be the worst place of all....

It is important to focus on these apparantly insignificant, isolated, small, local stories because they constitute a large part of the price for the immigration policy our politicians have followed through the last 30-40 years. A price being payed by the ordinary citizen who have no power what so ever. He is the one who is going to take the beatings. The insecurity. The humiliations. Or just put up with the insane behaviour that they are presented for on an everyday basis. Like these 'honour' killings (what an absurd label for a murder).

And he is also the one who is going to be labeled a racist when he finally gets enough and begin using his firearm for what it was invented.
