Another honor killing in Europe. And the circle of violence keeps widening: now the foster mother is in hiding — don’t miss the reason why. It looks as if even Muslims who leave the Islamic world in order to escape the harshness of Islamic law now have to fear retribution from the good folks back home. From Expatica, with thanks to LGF:
AMSTERDAM “” An Iraqi-Kurdish man, 21, is suspected of murdering his sister, 18, to protect the honour of the family, a court in Arnhem heard on Friday.
During a pre-trial hearing, the presiding judge indicated the court wanted to question the victim’s foster mother and aunt to establish if the killing was ordered by her family in Iraq.
The foster mother is in hiding because she fears the family in Iraq wants to punish her for giving the victim too much freedom.
The court has also ordered that the accused man from Culemborg be examined in the Pieter Baan psychiatric centre in Utrecht to find out if his cultural background played a role in the crime. An expert in
‘honour’ killings will also testify at a later hearing.
Why of course not. His cultural background, you say? Don’t you realize that a Methodist or a Christian Scientist or a Raw Foodist is just as likely to commit an honor killing as a Muslim? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?
The victim was a non-practising Muslim and had a child in 2004 by her non-Muslim boyfriend. She was killed 15 days after the birth of the baby.
Her brother had allegedly regularly threatened the victim, and she had made a complaint to police in November 2004, shortly before her death.
And the dhimmicops were right on the case, from the looks of things.
