“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.”
His humor, his fearless ability to mock, ridicule and insult — anyone and everyone — and the graciousness and laughter with which these offenses were received by his ‘victims’ seems almost remarkable today. They loved him. Perhaps, one day, his comedy will be viewed as evidence, ironically, of an advanced civilization that once (yes, past tense) embraced freedom of expression.
“The outrage grew louder when it was revealed that Hussein K. had previously been detained on charges of murdering a woman in Greece. According to police, he raped a Greek student and threw her off a cliff on the isle of Corfu in May 2013. He had been sentenced to ten years in prison but was released prematurely only two-and-a-half years into his sentence in October 2015, following a Greek law to ease prison overcrowding.”
German authorities say he will be tried as a juvenile.
According to a Saudi feminist who posted the video on Twitter, it shows a high school guard fulfilling his duties, which include making sure the students are always fully covered and ensuring “women are caged until their guardians or drivers come”.
Often “invisible” because unreported, these physical and verbal attacks limit “the freedom of women, because they are often obligated to alter their daily lives: changing their routes, modes of transportation, schedules, attitudes and clothing in order to avoid confrontation,” wrote the report.
The result was to “exclude women from the public arena”, it said.
They’re policing you morally…They’re telling you to cover up. They’re following you. They’re grabbing your ass.”
“I don’t feel, I don’t feel as safe…
I’ll sit there and if someone is saying something to me, then I like have to put my eyes down and that’s not my personality. So when I have to like, not engage, then I have to deescalate, I feel very timid. I feel more like shut-in” — An American woman in Paris
“What does sexual pleasure from contact with her thighs mean? It means deriving sexual pleasure from an infant. How old is an infant? One year, a year and half, a few months?
It’s inconceivable for a grown man to have sex with an infant girl?
And you tell me Islamic Shari’a authorizes this?” — Ghada Jamshir
