A German paper reported that despite warnings from shelter workers, Arzu couldn’t bear the separation from her boyfriend and went to spend a night at his residence in November. His home, however, was only a kilometer and a half from her family home and was probably under observation. That night, her five brothers and sisters broke in, threatened the boyfriend with a gun before knocking him to the floor and kidnapping Arzu. That was the last time the young woman was seen alive. The police took the five into custody, one of whom, the oldest sister, works for the city administration.
While German police are still investigating Arzu’s murder, they are searching for another Yazidi honor killer, Ali Askar Hasso Barakat, a native of Iraq. In the name of “honor,” Barakat murdered his 13-year-old daughter, Sousan, last month with two shots to the head and one in the neck on an open street. The daughter had fled the family home for a youth shelter because of her father’s violence and was lured to an arranged, supervised meeting at a neutral site by a letter from her parents, in which, using touching language, they wanted to discuss the problems that existed between them.
“We are not judges and not police; we are your parents and would very much like to know how you are doing after six months,” they wrote.
But Sousan’s father had already judged her and planned to carry out the death sentence after the meeting. The reason? Sousan’s friends told a German newspaper the deceased simply wanted more freedom. The paper reported the father was offended that Sousan “instead of helping with the housework every day and taking care of her three younger brothers, wanted to take part in social life, to live as a German among Germans.” A woman’s living a Western lifestyle is all too often the pretext for an honor murder.
And Sousan appeared to be well on her way to becoming fully integrated into German society before her untimely death, if she wasn’t already. She was a member of a judo club as well as of the fire department and “liked to meet her friends after school.” Her mother is also being investigated for her daughter’s murder.
German police believe Sousan’s father is no longer in Germany. He may have had help in escaping as well as in procuring the murder weapon from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a Kurdish terrorist organization fighting both the Turkish and Iranian governments for an independent Kurdistan. The outlawed PKK, which is well represented in Germany and other Western European countries, is also suspected of making life very difficult for Yazidi women on the run. Those women the police have helped are placed in the equivalent of an American witness protection program but are often found – and very quickly at that – through the European-wide PKK network.
One 16-year old Yazidi teenager, a German newspaper reports, caught kissing her Pakistani boyfriend by her brother, fled the family home that night, fearing an honor murder. She was on the run for at least five and a half years, living in several different cities and two other countries besides Germany, but was always discovered. Another brother has joined her in the program because he fell in love with a non-Yazidi woman.
Besides the PKK, the Yazidi clan chiefs also hire detectives to find these fear-filled women.
“The Yazidi clan chiefs seldom give up; they want to bring back, often with violence, the renegades – or simply take revenge,” the paper reported.
It was actually an honor murder that brought the Yazidis to world attention several years ago. A 17-year-old Yazidi girl, Du’a Khalil Aswad, was stoned to death in Iraq in 2007 and a shocking video of the murder sparked worldwide outrage. The girl’s crime? She had fallen in love with a Muslim boy.
One cannot speak of integration in Germany and other Western European countries. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has already announced that multiculturalism is a failure. It has imported, and tolerated, barbarisms such as honor murders into Western societies, where, ironically, the victims are usually girls and women who want to integrate. The Yazidi families who killed Arzu and Sousan represent an anti-civilization who voluntarily self-segregate themselves in their communities from the host country’s culture and values. And since these anti-civilizational laws and values are the only ones respected in these communities, and fear and respect of German laws are non-existent, then the horror of honor murders is in Germany to stay.
