Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“On Sunday, shortly before 9 o’clock in the morning, the alleged perpetrator himself called the emergency hotline. He had murdered his family. A large contingent of officials raced to the specified address. There was a shocking picture. A 31-year-old man, who according to the newspaper “Heute” had a Turkish immigrant background, had stabbed his wife and child. His second child survived, but is likely to be injured as well.

The crime occurred in a terraced house on Emmerich-Kalman-Gasse in Kottingbrunn, Lower Austria. There, the alleged perpetrator had murdered his 23-year-old wife and a two-year-old toddler with numerous stab wounds. The puncture and cut injuries were so severe that no medical help was possible. The father of the family tried to suffocate his little son, who is only 11 months old. He survived the act, but has had great problems breathing. He was taken to the hospital by emergency ambulance.

The 31-year-old “Austro-Turk” was arrested without resistance by the police. The history of the terrible relationship should be clarified in the next few hours and days….
