At least 3000 forced marriages in Germany annually

Forced Marriages in Germany More Prevalent than Thought– A new study has revealed that thousands of young women and girls in forced marriages seek help every year in Germany. The vast majority of victims come from Muslim families, and many have been threatened with violence or even death. The numbers involved are much higher than previously suspected. more…

 WTF is wrong with these people?

UK Supreme Court Justice criticizes colleagues as “unwise” for scrapping forced marriage law

Are these costumed clowns in charge of their faculties?

A British Supreme Court justice has criticised his fellow law lords as “unwise” for using human rights legislation to “frustrate Government policy” over a law introduced to crack down on forced marriages.

In an unusual case of a judge speaking out against his peers, Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood strongly disagreed with his colleagues on the Bench, saying the law was needed to address the “appalling evil” of forced marriage.

Four of five law lords rejected an appeal by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, who had been trying to save a law banning non-European spouses between 18 and 21 from entering Britain. Lord Brown was the dissenting voice against his 4 colleagues.

Remember Sara & Amina?

Murdered by their Egyptian Muslim father, because they wanted to live normal, American lives.

Pamela Geller has covered their story extensively:  Amina and Sarah Said: Confession from the Mom from Hell – Atlas Shrugs Yasser Said physically and emotionally abused his children.  And he made his wife his slave. Psychologically, sexually and in any other way.

In October 1998, when Amina and Sarah were 9 and 8 years old, they accused their father of sexual abuse.

The allegations were reported to the Hill County sheriff’s office, where the girls told a detective their father had been touching them inappropriately. Amina told authorities she had been penetrated at least once.

Their mother swore in an affidavit that the allegations were true. (here)

Tissy withdrew the affidavit she originally signed when the girls were seven and eight, testifying that Yaser had raped them.

Flashback:

The mother who lured her two young daughters, Sarah and Amina, to their tragic deaths at the hand of their father, Yaser Said, now regrets what she did. Downplaying her own role, or rather, insisting that she is innocent, Patricia (“Tissy”) Owens calls the murder of her daughters an “honor killing” by an “evil man.” Despite years of paternal child abuse at home, “Tissy” now insists that she had no idea that Yaser was actually going to kill the girls whom he sexually and physically abused and whose “too Western” ways enraged him.

Now we have another case of a mother from hell:

California Girl Claims She Ran Away to Avoid Arranged Marriage in Pakistan

Clearly, the mother is trailer trash. And the Pakis scum she calls her husband calls the shots:

Sultan Knish: Muslim Men and Non-Muslim Women

When American mother Melissa Bender married Pakistani Mohammad Khan, she brought three children from a previous marriage into the relationship. Today the children are in protective custody after police discovered that her 13 year old daughter, Jessie Bender wasn’t taken away by a predator, but that the predator had been right in her own house.
Thanks to Vlad we have video:

Mohammad Khan was planning to take Melissa and Jessie to Pakistan, where the 13 year old girl feared she would be forced into an arranged marriage. Instead she bravely went on the run and the police department appears to be doing the right thing. For now.

Police: 13 Year Old Ran Away Because She Feared Arranged Marriage

Had Mohammad Khan taken her to Pakistan and married her off, it would have been almost impossible for the child to escape again. Particularly from a rural area. She would have been repeatedly raped by her “husband”, beaten by her in-laws and turned into a slave. And Khan would have likely profited from the exchange. Khan didn’t just marry a middle aged woman, he married a woman with at least one girl at home. And in Pakistan that translates into a salable commodity.   (Read it all…)

Jessie Bender was about to be taken on a two-month trip to Pakistan. Why didn’t her mother and stepfather just claim to investigators that their daughter was jumping to conclusions and overreacting?

The parents’ elaborate lies suggest they had something to hide. Britain’s forced-marriage investigators have seen many a case that started with the ruse of an extended “family vacation” overseas.

Child marriage persists in the Muslim world because Muhammad married a nine-year-old himself (in human years, not Galapagos turtle-years as desperate apologists are bound to claim some time), and Qur’an 33:21 upholds him as a “beautiful pattern of conduct” without exception. Jessie Bender’s story shows that “pattern of conduct” can and does endanger girls in America. “Parents of Jessie Bender, 13, lied about daughter, cops say; Was trying to escape arranged marriage,” from the New York Daily News, March 3 (thanks to all who sent this in):

A 13-year-old girl reported missing by her parents was really trying to escape an arranged marriage in Pakistan, police said Wednesday.

Forced marriage cases up 80 pc this year as investigators find parents using "bounty hunters"

 By Martin Beckford, Religious Affairs Correspondent 
Telegraph UK

A special Government unit dedicated to stopping teenagers being married off by their families dealt with 300 cases in the first half of this year, up from 168 in the same period of 2007.

                                                

* Atlas betrayed: Close to a year after Amina and Sarah’s death, America’s Most Wanted did a segment on the story and rewrote history. 

Update: America’s Most Wanted did a story on the honor killings in Texas of Amina and Sarah Said by their father, Yaser Said, but — not surprisingly — they glossed over the honor killing angle.

As long as the mainstream media keeps doing this, instead of calling the American Muslim community to some accountability, more Muslim girls will be murdered for honor in the United States.

Pamela has a heartbroken letter from the girls’ Aunt Gail about the shoddiness and inaccuracy of the America’s Most Wanted presentation.

* Diplomats dash to rescue 15-year-old British girl from threat of forced marriage in Pakistan

But the head of the Forced Marriage Unit, based at the Foreign Office, fears this could be just the tip of the iceberg as many victims are too scared to come forward and communities often close up to hide what is going on.
