Holland is on my mind right now, partly because Geert Wilders is, unbelievably,Â still on trial for the “thought crime” of telling the truth about Islamic jihad but partly because a new study has just been released which shows that half the victims of honor-related violence in Holland (this means Muslimgirls and women) who sought shelter through the social serviceÂ network, Fier Fryslan, were alsoÂ sexuallyabused by their own family members.
Of the sexually abused girls, 52% were abused by a cousin, 22% by a brother and 20% by an uncle. 8% were abused by their father, 2% by a stepfather, and 2% by an acquaintance.
But, I am mainly thinking a lot about Holland because I recently met with and interviewedÂ the mostamazing woman, the author, Abigail R. Esman, who has just published a very important book,Â Radical State: How Jihad Is Winning Over Democracy in the West.
