Recently, The Telegraph disclosed what many already know, namely that “thousands of honour attacks” happen every year in the UK.
Also, CBN reported recently about “Islamic ‘Honor Violence’ Rising in the West.”
But in many cases there is no attack, just pressure and threats. Not many killings, forced suicides, beatings, kidnappings, rapes etc. are needed to make the rest bow to threats. Nadia is a brave exception: “Threatened with beatings for not wearing Islamic scarf,” translated from the Danish in B.T.:
Nadia has repeatedly received threats after she stopped wearing the Islamic veil and began to resemble and behave like a Danish girl.
- I have received threats of beatings because of my piercing, because I go to discotheques and because I took off the veil, Nadia explains.
- For example, once I was at a party. Some young Arabs came and threatened me with beatings. Luckily a friend of mine said, ‘You can just try!,’ and at the same moment a police car drove by, so nothing happened, Nadia says …
Nadia was abducted by her father to Lebanon when she was eleven years old. There she lived with a distant part of her family, got married and had a child with the man.
About a year ago, Nadia came back to Denmark with her husband, from whom she is now divorced.
