When will the killings stop? The only way Germany can be saved is to vote Merkel out of office. She is no different than Hitler. She is a communist.

◾The court heard how Amer K. stabbed the mother of his three children in the chest and neck more than twenty times with a large kitchen knife, because he thought she wanted to divorce him.
◾”Then he takes the knife and plunges it into her chest, [penetrating] the pericardium and heart muscle. A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head, cracking her skull. Then he grabs the rope. On one end he ties a gibbet knot around her neck, then he ties the other end to the trailer hitch on [his car]… He races through the streets at 80 km/h [until] the rope breaks.” — State Prosecutor Ann-Kristin Fröhlich, reconstructing the husband’s actions.
◾In Ahaus, a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a 22-year-old woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances.
The trial of a Kurdish man who tied one of his three wives to the back of a car and dragged her through the streets of a town in Lower Saxony has drawn attention to an outbreak of Muslim honor violence in Germany.
Honor violence — ranging from emotional abuse to physical and sexual violence to murder — is usually carried out by male family members against female family members who are perceived to have brought shame upon a family or clan.
Offenses include refusing to agree to an arranged marriage, entering into a relationship with a non-Muslim or someone not approved by the family, refusing to stay in an abusive marriage or living an excessively Western lifestyle. In practice, however, the lines between crimes of honor and crimes of passion are often blurred and any challenge to male authority can elicit retribution, which is sometimes staggeringly brutal.
On May 22, a court in Hanover heard how a 39-year-old Turkish-born Kurd named Nurettin B. attempted to murder his second wife, Kader K., 28, after she asked him to provide financial support for their two-year-old son. State Prosecutor Ann-Kristin Fröhlich reconstructed Nurettin B.’s actions:
“At around 6PM on November 20, 2016, Nurettin B. got into his car in Hamelin to meet Kader K. The trunk contained a knife, an ax and a rope. Sitting on the back seat of the car was their two-year-old son, who had spent the weekend with him. On the street, the former couple got into an argument and he begins hitting her. Then he takes the knife and plunges it into her chest. The 12.4 centimeter long blade penetrates the pericardium and heart muscle. A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head and upper body, cracking her skull.
“Then he grabs the rope. On one end he ties a gibbet knot around her neck, then he ties the other end to the trailer hitch on the back of his black VW Passat. Nurettin B. steps on the gas. He races through the streets at 80 km/h (50 mph). After 208 meters (680 feet) the rope breaks. Kader K. is hurled against the curb. Nurettin B. drives to the police station to turn himself in. The child is still sitting in the back seat.”
Presiding Judge Wolfgang Rosenbusch asked Kader K., who was comatose for weeks, to tell her side of the story. She said “the horror” began immediately after their Islamic sharia wedding (the marriage is not valid according to German law) in March 2013, when Nurettin B. prohibited her from having any contact with friends and family. She was allowed to leave the house only for grocery shopping and medical visits. She was not allowed to have a mobile phone. Rosenbusch asked: “Does he have a problem with women?” Kader K. replied: “He believes women are slaves; they must keep silent.”
Nurettin B. has confessed to the crime but insists it was not premeditated. He has been charged with attempted murder and faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

On May 9, a court in Kiel sentenced 35-year-old Turkish man to two-and-a-half years in prison for shooting his estranged wife in both knees and permanently laming her, in the hope that she would be unattractive to other men. The court heard how the man took his wife to the back of a local mosque after Friday prayers, accused her of offending his honor and shot her, saying: “Now you can no longer walk. You will stay at home.”
In court, however, the woman, possibly under pressure from her family or the mosque, told the court that they couple had reconciled and would attend marriage counselling. Some observers surmised that the dispute may have been resolved in a sharia court. In any event, the German court allowed the man to return home with his wife and it remains unclear if and when he will serve his sentence.
In Münster, a court sentenced a 36-year-old Lebanese man named Amer K. to 12 years in prison for stabbing his wife to death. The court heard how Amer K. stabbed 26-year-old Fatima S., the mother of his three children, in the chest and neck more than twenty times with a large kitchen knife because he thought she wanted to divorce him.
Meanwhile, a court in Hanau sentenced a 22-year-old Syrian refugee to twelve years in prison for stabbing to death his 30-year-old sister, Ramia A., with a kitchen knife. She was 23 weeks pregnant and was accused of having brought shame to her family. Her unborn child also died in the attack.
The true scale of Germany’s honor crime problem is unknown: many such crimes go unreported and reliable statistics do not exist. Empirical evidence indicates that honor violence — primarily but not exclusively the product of Muslim culture and Islamic law, sharia — has metastasized since Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed in some two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
In March 2011, the Max Planck Institute published a landmark study on honor killings. The study analyzed all such crimes known to have occurred in Germany between 1996 and 2005. The report found that there were two honor killings in 1998 and 12 in 2004. By 2016, however, the number had jumped to more than 60, an increase of 400%, according to the website Ehrenmord.
The actual number of honor crimes presumably is much higher. Increased censorship by the police and the media, aimed at stemming anti-immigration sentiments, makes it impossible to know the names and national origins of many victims or perpetrators, or the true circumstances surrounding many murders, which often appear to be honor killings but are downplayed as “domestic disputes” (Familienangelegenheiten).
2017 is nevertheless on track to be a record year for honor violence in Germany; in the first five months of this year, there have been at least 30 honor killings, including the following:
May 18. In Berlin, a 32-year-old Bosnian, Edin A., murdered his former girlfriend, a 35-year-old German woman named Michelle E., after she ended their abusive relationship. He also abducted and tortured her 12-year-old son, who was forced to watch his mother’s murder. Neighbors said they had repeatedly alerted the police about Edin A.’s violent behavior, but the police did nothing.
May 17. In Pforzheim, a 53-year-old Tajik man stabbed to death his 50-year-old wife at her place of employment, a Christian daycare center. It remains unclear if the woman was a convert to Christianity.
May 17. In Wardenburg, a 37-year-old Iraqi man stabbed to death his 37-year-old wife while she was asleep in her bed. The couple’s five children, between the ages of four and 15, were at home at the time of the murder and are now living with relatives.
May 8. In Neuendettelsau, a 24-year-old Ethiopian asylum seeker, Mohammed G., stabbed his 22-year-old girlfriend in the stomach at a restaurant after she allegedly “provoked” him. The woman was five months pregnant; the unborn baby died in the attack.
May 4. In Freiburg, a 33-year-old Syrian asylum seeker stabbed his 24-year-old wife, a Kurdish Christian who had moved out of the couple’s apartment, but had returned to collect some personal belongings. The couple’s three children — aged six, three and ten months — are now in protective custody.
April 29. In Prien am Chiemsee, a 29-year-old Afghan man stabbed to death a 38-year-old Afghan woman, Farima S., who had converted to Christianity. The attacker ambushed the woman as she was exiting a grocery store with her two children.
April 23. In Syke, a 32-year-old Iraqi man, Murad B., strangled his 32-year-old wife, Mehe K., in front of the couple’s three children, ages one, two and nine.
April 23. In Dresden, a 29-year-old Pakistani refugee, Shahajan Butt, murdered his girlfriend, a 41-year-old Vietnamese woman named Thu T. Police say the man, who arrived in Germany in December 2015, became enraged after he noticed that the woman had not posted any photos of him on her Facebook page, and suspected that she may have had another boyfriend.
April 16. In Mainz-Finthen, a 39-year-old Egyptian asylum seeker stabbed to death his 32-year-old wife. Police said the couple had been arguing at the time of the attack. Their two children are being held in protective custody.
April 5. In Leipzig, a 34-year-old Syrian man stabbed his 28-year-old wife because she wanted a divorce. The couple’s two children witnessed the attack; they are being held in protective custody.
March 31. In Gütersloh, a 43-year-old Syrian man burned his 18-year-old daughter with a cigarette and threatened to kill her. When the police intervened, the father refused to allow his daughter to leave the house. After police succeeded in bringing the girl to safety, the father and son attacked the police, who used pepper-spray to fend them off. The girl is being held in protective custody.
March 15. In Kiel, a 40-year-old German-Turkish man stabbed to death his 34-year-old Turkish wife in front of a daycare center. Neighbors said the couple, who were separated, had quarreled about moving their three children to Turkey.
March 4. In Duisburg, a 30-year-old Syrian asylum seeker, Mahmood Mahrusseh, stabbed his 32-year-old ex-girlfriend. The woman survived; her attacker remains at large.
March 3. In Mönchengladbach, a 32-year-old asylum seeker, Ahmed Salim, murdered a 47-year-old German woman, Nicole M., apparently after she ended a relationship with him. The man, who also uses the alias Jamal Amilia, was arrested in Spain. In his asylum application, he had written that he was from Israel. In another asylum application filed in another country, he had written that he was from Morocco. He is believed to be from Iraq.
March 2. In Scheeßel, a 42-year-old Iraqi man stabbed to death his 52-year-old wife, also from Iraq. Police described the murder as an honor killing. The couple’s children are now in protective custody.
February 25. In Euskirchen, a 32-year-old German-Turkish man stabbed to death his former girlfriend, a 32-year-old German woman who had begun dating someone else.
February 17. In Offenbach, a 32-year-old Turkish man, Volkan T., shot to death his former girlfriend, a 40-year-old woman, Silvia B. The man said he was angry that the woman, who had two children, had ended her relationship with him.
February 15. In Bielefeld, a 51-year-old Iraqi man tried to murder his 51-year-old wife by attacking her with a hammer while she was attending a German class at a local language academy. The man was apparently angry that his wife was mixing with other language students.
February 10. In Ahaus, a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a 22-year-old woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances. The woman, a Hindu, was employed at the same asylum shelter where her attacker lived. He was arrested in Basel, Switzerland.
February 7. In Hanover-Mühlenberg, a 21-year-old Serbian man stabbed his ex-girlfriend after she ended their relationship and had begun dating someone else.
February 1. In Hamburg, a 26-year-old Afghan man stabbed his estranged 28-year-old wife during an argument; she survived the attack.
January 15. In Bremen-Vegesack, a 39-year-old Turkish man murdered his 40-year-old Syrian wife, who was nine months pregnant, because she wanted to divorce him. The unborn baby also died during the attack.
January 5. In Waldshut-Tiengen, a 47-year-old Turkish man stabbed his estranged wife as she was walking with a friend. When she tried to run away, he pursued her and plunged a knife in her back.
January 4. In Köln-Buchheim, a 44-year-old Iraqi man murdered his 19-year-old daughter because he did not approve of her boyfriend. Two days later, he called police. “I killed my daughter,” he said. The man may never face justice; he is believed to have fled to Iraq.

HONOUR KILLINGS EXPLAINED:
According to the books of such embedded cultural anthropologists as Raphael Patai’s “The Arab Mind” and Carl Salzman’s “Culture and Conflict in the Middle East,” Arab “culture” (which is codified in the Qur’an) glorifies the tribe over the individual, so each tribe engages in us-versus-them, might-makes-right wars all the time.
The best way to keep your tribal numbers up is to have each man marry four or more wives, which guarantees he will breed four (hopefully male warrior) children each year, while also depriving his enemy’s tribes of those same women and warrior-breeding ability.
This is also why they marry their own cousins all the time (so the enemy tribes can’t steal their women and potential warrior-children, thus weakening their own tribes) and it’s also why they have “honour” killings (because if they can’t control even their ‘weakest’ members, then they will invite attack from other tribes AND they’ll have lost those women’s warrior kids to their enemies, too)!
So if they don’t kill their own women, then those women’s actions will eventually get them all killed!
Libtards in the West refuse to see this easy truth, and pretend it’s the moslems’ “cultural right” to out-breed and conquer everyone.
You believe in “Democracy,” in voting-might-makes-rights?
Allowing polygamy destroys your children’s future rights.
PS: Not surprisingly, the only non-Arab or non-moslem, so-called “Christian” countries which also have honour-killings, are all colonies which derive their cultures from Spain – because Spain was violently conquered and enslaved by islam for 780 (for almost 1,000) years, that’s why!
Alastair Wilson • May 30, 2017 at 18:06
These honour killings (murders) have a common thread, namely that the perpetrators have the moral and social emotional reasoning of a 10 year old child. It is a “might is right” approach to interpersonal relationships. I’m sure these offenders have average or better intellectual ability, so an intellectual disability is not the explanation for their actions.
Mark Anderson • May 30, 2017 at 14:25
Only 12 years in jail for murder in the Amer K. case?
Clearly murder is not considered a serious offence in modern Germany.
Perhaps that is a big part of the problem.
Mary Houghton • May 30, 2017 at 14:21
And just where are all the bloody useless feminists raging about these atrocities? No surprise that the only time they EVER speak out is when it is white men who are perpetrating so-called injustices against women. They would NEVER go after any of these men as they know they would get medieval on them. They really should stuff their pink pussy hats where they belong. Useless creatures.

The Germans are harvesting what their politicians have planted by accepting the mass immigration of so many Muslims. A weakened people, who do not know how to face violence from a population that does not want to integrate into German society, preferring to live under Muslim laws. A weakened people, it is easy prey for people who do not have the least respect for this people.

If these crimes are seen as “honor killings”, either under Sharia Law or German civil court proceedings, some one is missing the obvious! There is no “honor” anywhere in Islamic culture when female children are genitally mutilated and girls nine years of age on up are forced into slave-marriages. For honor to exist in any religion there must be RESPECT for all living creatures. In order for “honor” to exist in any religion, there should never be favoritism or partiality towards one gender over another. There is NO place for “honor” to exist in a religion that brutalizes woman and children. Therefore, there is no need to prove culpability or reasonable doubt, motive, or opportunity in the “court of humanitarian democratic equality!”
Germany will once again go down in history as a brutal nation with a need for a “final solution”! The German courts allowing murderers to serve only 12 years for all these sordid, horrific and heinous crimes will demand another Nuremberg Trial Court proceeding. Holocaust, again, only proves that History DOES in fact repeat itself! Angela Merkel will be sitting in the the “hot seat” unless she decides to shot herself and her husband in the “Eagles Lair/Nest”!
Thank you, Gatestone and thank you Mr. Kern. I can hardly breathe after reading this article. I pray that America will not mind “isolating” itself from a Europe that has lost its moral compass trying to live with these very disturbed humans who think they are entitled to their Islamic religious ways of living in nations that have tried to rescue them from the vortex of Islamic war and poverty.
Now, let me ask Ms. Merkel this. Are these the “demographic replacement” for native Germans? If so, you are making a huge mistake!
Dorothy Webb Davies Juanita Skelton • May 30, 2017 at 15:57
You are quite right. “Honour” ought not to be used by journalists to report these vicious crimes. Perhaps we could suggest a new name – “frenzied sexist” murders? I personally think men who behave like this should be castrated. It could be more of a deterrent than the death penalty or a couple of years in jail.

And yet there are those in the United States who do not believe this is happening. What needs to happen to wake up everyone to the dangers of open borders?
Gene • May 30, 2017 at 12:13
Just the kind of people you want as citizens!
M. D. Johnson • May 30, 2017 at 12:09
Thank you for having the courage to speak out against the real-time, real world crimes against women in the name of Radical Islam and Sharia Law. I have for decades taken a stand through my books and lectures on honor killing. This is the real War Against Women and they have no voice without the few who, like you, draw public attention to this vile and unjust dichotomy of God and Terror! Do not be mislead it does happen here in the United States and can grow as the fear, chaos and uncertainty continues. Again, my thanks for your work to lift the veil! M. D. Johnson, Author “The ISIS Project” Political thriller series and the book that defines honor killing “A Stranger On The Shore”.

I wonder if Angela Merkel reads of these atrocities, and further wonder if the German people (or what’s left of them) have become so seduced by their liberal attitude toward more and more Muslim immigration that they don’t even realize that their country is doomed to becoming another part of the Islamic caliphate. As an American, however, I can’t be overly critical; the same thing is happening here.
Pat Walker Barry N. Schmidt, D.D.S • May 30, 2017 at 14:21
Many of the German people are very much aware of what is happening, but due to German laws, are powerless to stop anything or to even take action. The icing on the cake was when Obama left office and told Merkel that SHE was now the leader of the West, not Trump. If Merkel is now the Western leader (tongue in cheek), may God help us all.
Barry N. Schmidt, D.D.S Pat Walker • May 30, 2017 at 15:52
Then, the laws should be changed, even if it takes a revolution. If nothing is done, Germany will cease to become a sovereign nation. Have Germans been silenced by Merkel, or have they merely returned to the days of Hitler, when people dared not speak the truth for fear of being rounded up by the SS, tortured, hauled off to a death camp, or simply caused to disappear?
Dorothy Webb Davies Pat Walker • May 30, 2017 at 16:01
Why are the German people powerless to make their leaders change the laws? They should get onto it while they are still living in a democracy. In the U.K.we must do it too.
Pat Walker Barry N. Schmidt, D.D.S • May 30, 2017 at 17:34
The freedom of the press has been curtailed in Germany. There are also blasphemy laws (against Islam) now in force. I believe they have been silenced by Merkel. Germany has not reached the point of rounding up dissenters yet. Yes, the laws need to be changed, which will have to be by a new German leader and/or revolution. I am not in favor of any war, civil or otherwise, but sometimes people are left with no other choice.
Germany, with France and Sweden close behind, has given in to the Muslims for so long, that no-go zones and sharia law seem to be taking over. The biggest question I still ask – What is Merkel’s agenda in allowing this to happen? It may have begun with political correctness, but I no longer believe that is the prime reason. There is something at work in the shadows that is ominous, sinister and financed by some very powerful people/organizations. It would have to be or else we will have to conclude that Merkel is greatly lacking in ordinary common sense. I believe she is a pawn being swept along by something now out of control. What else could it be? Why else would she be turning Germany over to the Muslims?
As for the citizens, they are losing their rights, bit by bit. And in the future, it will most likely end up as it was in the days of Hitler – people disappearing, death camps, etc., just as you say. Considering the road that Germany is now traveling, the latter is a given, and Germany will no longer be a sovereign nation… but will be a Caliphate. Whatever the reasons, it has become a very dangerous game and will be the end of Germany as well as other European nations.
Pat Walker Dorothy Webb Davies • May 30, 2017 at 19:03
I called them powerless because certain things that need to be said are now outlawed according to various articles I have been reading here at Gatestone. They will have a very difficult time. They have waited almost too long, but change can still happen. What we must do and what we actually do is two dfferent things. Most of us are not out organizing groups to go before the courts to challenge laws. Most of us are not petitioning for signatures to change the laws. Most of us are busy writing about what needs to be done, though writing has proven to be very effective provided it gets into the right hands.
Jeff Page • May 30, 2017 at 11:32
Welcome, one and all, to the new Europistan along with all the trimmings, including rape, honour killings, FGM, poligamy and the eventual public executions.
But with all the evidence to hand, Frau Merkel is still more than happy to put her people at risk by welcoming Islam with open arms and doing what nearly all the leaders in the West are doing and taking in the lies and deceit from Muslims and not listening to her own people.
It may well take many decades to happen, but eventually, Muslims will be the dominating force throughout Europe, but on the way, many innocent European citizens will be slaughtered by the followers of the peaceful religion of Islam. By then, of course, people such as Merkel will be long gone, so will escape the crimes committed against their own people.
The French and the Dutch had every opportunity to put a halt to the Muslim invasion of Europe but they were too cowardly!! Something they will come to regret in the near future. They should have had the courage of the British and the Americans and voted for change! No wonder Europe fell prey to a dictator, they are repeating their mistakes by refusing to go with sensible leadership.

How many more are there and how many more are there that we will never know about? The Germans are fools and they are trying to force the rest of Europe into becoming fools as well. This can only go on for so long before there is serious trouble on the streets.
Rex Tyrano • May 30, 2017 at 09:00
But .. but … but Merkel says Islam is the religion of peace and these people are all beautiful and wonderful peace lovers and Germany needs more of them!!!!!

Such inhumanity should never be acceptable in a religion. Do these believers worship a true God or Satan? Such evil should not be allowed in any country!
D. Davies Mar Bol • May 30, 2017 at 16:05
They worship a Satanic force. It is obvious. Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them.” A good tree bears good fruit, a bad tree bears bad …

As several current Christians exposed to Islam whether in Lebanon or Christian converts from Islam state – “the only Islam is that in the “unabrogated” verses in the Quran and the Hadith”. The mantra of every Muslim is “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammad is his messenger.” Christians and Jews are seen as Infidels, Jesus Christ is only a prophet replaced by the “last prophet” (Mohammad) and “peace” will only come to Islam when that ideology stands alone on the globe. In this very definition is the meaning of the anti-Christ – one who opposes/replaces Jesus Christ relegating him to nothing. Many Muslims don’t know/have never read their book, the Quran. They don’t know/have no assurance of their future unlike we who “can know that we have eternal life” (1 John 5:13). Allah is not personal, does nothing for anyone and can only steal, kill, and destroy.
