Nothing about "halal-butchered" in this one though People tend to bleed out when stabbed.
Sometimes I too wonder what exactly drives you.
Fair enough there - thought it was a bit OTT myself. What drives me is clear - the unvarnished truth and the desire not to see it glossed over.

Kindly back that up with sources. I don't mind you trolling me - but aren't you the member who thinks that rape is just something that men do to women ??
I'm not trolling you. Don't flatter yourself. As for your last comment... that's not me and I don't know of any forum member that would apply to. It would never be me as a previous partner was stabbed, gang raped and left for dead.

Hold on you make a baseless statement and have no intention of backing it up ? Oh good then that's cleared up a bit about the level of individual you are.

Grand - sorry to hear of your trouble. My wife was given rophynol once in ZRH - I've nothing short of burning anger for those who commit such offences and zero tolerance - which annoys me even more that the EU is happy to import cultures with high and persistent amounts of such violence.

Merely repeating your request that I do the same in another thread. But seeing as you asked...

8. Relationship between victim and principal suspect

Data on relationship of victim to principal suspect for the year ending March 2015 show similar findings to previous years. There were differences between males and females in the pattern of relationships between victims and suspects. Female victims (68%) were more likely than male victims (52%) to have been acquainted with the principal suspect (Appendix Table 2.05 (1.59 Mb Excel sheet); Figure 2.4)1.
In particular, women were far more likely than men to be killed by partners/ex-partners (44% of female victims compared with 6% of male victims), and men were far more likely than women to be killed by friends or acquaintances (32% of male victims and 8% of female victims) or strangers (31% of male victims compared with 12% of female victims).

But my ex-boyfriend was attacked by British men whilst getting off a train on the Northern Line in London.

In 2002 in Germany there were 8,615 rape and aggravated sexual coercion crimes
In 2015 in Germany there were 7,022 rape and aggravated sexual coercion crimes

In 2002 in Germany there were 873 murder crimes
In 2015 in Germany there were 649 murder crimes

The facts do not support your burning anger.
Feeding your anger by seeking out individual newspaper reports is not helping you.

Quote:
While men are mostly killed by someone they may not know, almost half of all female victims are killed by those closest to them. In Asia, Europe and Oceania the share of victims from domestic violence is particularly important. In all these regions, the majority of female homicide victims are killed at the hands of their intimate partners/family members (in Asia and Europe, 55 per cent, and in Oceania, 73 per cent). For example, in Asia, 19,700 women were killed by their intimate partners or family members in 2012. When only looking at intimate partner violence, the overwhelming majority of homicide victims are women (79 per cent in Europe).

You may gain a little credulity if you post from legitimate sources rather than white supremacist sites. Until then...

I know what honour killing is, this example was not one.
In Germany between one third and a half murders are by family members (say between 200 and 300), there is only limited research on honour killings in Germany that show an average of three per year.

I don't need newspaper reports - I have statistical facts - when governments can be bothered to collect and publish them :

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigr...d_crime#Sweden

Quote:
Immigrants are overrepresented in Sweden's crime statistics. In a study by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention in 1997-2001, 25% of the almost 1,520,000 offences were found to be committed by people born abroad, while almost 20% were committed by Swedish-born people with a foreign background. In the study, immigrants were found to be four times more likely to be investigated for lethal violence and robbery than ethnic Swedes. In addition, immigrants were three times more likely to be investigated for violent assault, and five times more likely to be investigated for sex crimes. Overall, North Africa and Western Asia were strongly overrepresented in the crime statistics. The report is based on statistics for those "suspected" of offences, but Stina Holmberg of the Council for Crime Prevention said that there was "little difference" in the statistics for those suspected of crimes and those actually convicted. "Slightly under 60 percent of the almost 1,520,000 offences ... registered during the period covered by the study can be attributed to persons who were born in Sweden to two Swedish-born parents," it said.
Oh and here's some more from the 2016 edition :
Quote:
A Swedish Police report from May 2016 found that there have been 123 incidents of sexual molestation in the country's public baths and pools in 2015 (112 of them were directed against girls). In 55% of cases, the perpetrator could be reasonably identified. From these identified perpetrators, 80% were of foreign origin.[100]

Really?? Zerohedge ??? Here's a direct link to the report for the developmentally challenged :

https://polisen.se/Global/www%20och%...ofredanden.pdf

The portion within the report that you're looking for since you'll claim you understand Swedish less so than English is 3.8.1.5:

Quote:
Under 2015 anmäldes brottet sexuellt ofredande på badanläggningar vid 123 olika
brottstillfällen. I de fall pojkar varit utsatta för ofredandet skedde det i omklädningsrum
eller i bastu/duschrum och har rört sig i huvudsak om att äldre män onanerat eller
liknande medan de tittat på pojkarna. Ofredandena var i 112 fall riktade mot flickor. Ca
30 av dessa rörde sig om anmälningar vid utomhusbad och då var det uteslutande fråga
om blottning.
Det fanns skäligen misstänkta personer i ca 55 procent av anmälningarna. Av dessa var
86 procent yngre än 20 år, och merparten av dem ca 15-16 år. De senare var
övervägande misstänkta för brott mot flickor som inte fyllt 15 år.
I 80 procent av anmälningarna från badhus var gärningsmännen av uppgiven eller
fastställd utländsk härkomst. De flesta saknade svenskt personnummer och i
anmälningarna framgick det att de tillhörde grupper av asylsökande pojkar.
Good luck with your "fake news" claims!

Re: What is happening in Turkey tonight?

Folks, the thread is called What is happening in Turkey tonight?. The title implies it's about what is happening currently and it has changed from the coup attempt to Erdogans referendum.

The subject is just too darn important to muck it up with the here so much loved moslem-in-general-ranting. Can't those who just can't help themselves return to the already mucked-up threads until May 2017 ...... or even better May 2021?
Please? pretty please?

Well the fun thing is that people have different (and opposing) views of the meaning of the word " multiculturalism".
Some believe it means integration has happened and others believe it means the opposite.
You just know multiculturalism and integration from Turkish immigrants has failed when it's considered a threat for them to have more babies!

It wasn't sexual harassment ,it was sexual assault in swimming pools.
