While women in Western culture decry the discrimination that they face at the hands of men, there has been relatively little mention of the plight of the Muslim woman. Leftist women organize rallies called Slut Walks, where they dress and act provocatively. This is done to show men that they act this way absent the desire to attract them sexually. These women claim that they are rallying to expose and destroy the “Rape Culture” in the West.
Again, these supposed champions of women’s rights and freedoms have little if anything to say about the brutality faced by Muslim women in the very same culture. This is highlighted by the recent murder of a young migrant in Germany.
The alleged “honor killing” last month of a young pregnant woman who fled Syria after being gang raped is the latest case to leave Germans horrified by the crimes and customs of some of the refugees pouring in from the war-torn Middle East.
The woman, identified only as Rokstan M., fled Syria in 2011 after being gang-raped by Syrian soldiers and found work as an interpreter. After authorities in the small, eastern city of Dessau discovered her body, stabbed and buried behind a housing complex for Syrian refugees Friday, suspicion has focused on her father and brothers, who prosecutors believe may have killed her because the gang rape left her “unclean.”
Now, I have reported that the Muslim culture has a problem with pedophilia, but we are seeing that they have just as bad a problem with rape. Women, usually seen as beneath men; mere property, are treated as property. This also has led many to think of them as objects to be abused and discarded. And Rokstan is just the recent of many in Germany.
Honor killings are an acute problem in Germany. According to Kaiser, there have been at least 129 documented honor killings in Germany in the last 20 years. The number is likely to be higher because Papatya does not have access to all court cases and relies on open sources for its data.
And it is likely that this is only going to get worse. With the influx of Muslim migrant refugees, there is the unavoidable conclusion that these wicked practices will come with them. This has been the pattern.
In late September, the trial of a Pakistani parents—Shazia and Asadullah Khan—charged with murdering their 19-year-old daughter Lareeb in a case of “honor killing,” unfolded in the city of Darmstadt.
The Khans considered their daughter’s activity dishonorable because she did not want an arranged marriage and stopped wearing a head scarf. Lareeb started a relationship with a young man and was caught shoplifting condoms. Shazia said at her trial: “At this point it became clear that there was sexual contact. When I showed the letter to my husband, he snapped.”
This means that these men, given the responsibility to care for and protect the women in their households, turned and killed them. They chose to place their status and reputation in their community above the lives of their children.
What is the difference between these monstrous acts and those who sacrificed their children at the high places of Topheth (Jere. 7:30-31)? And like the Israelite before him, the Muslim will bear his guilt.
