Number of non-German murder suspects rises

Video Preview

Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) has recorded an increase of closed murder cases in 2017 involving at least one "non-German" suspect, reported Welt Am Sonntag, published Deutsche Welle (Germany).

The number rose to 83 last year, up from 62 the year before, marking a 33 percent increase. In total, 731 people died as a result of murder or manslaughter in 2017.

The figures solely comprise closed cases. The BKA's 2017 report did not specify nationality or whether a suspect was an EU citizen.

More refugees killed
In total, the number of completed cases involving murder or manslaughter dropped year-on-year from 876 in 2016, marking a decrease of 16.6 percent.

However, the number of asylum seekers or refugees killed in 2017 increased compared for the year, rising to 40. It marked a 60 percent increase from 2016, when 25 murder or manslaughter cases involving asylum seekers or refugees were closed.

A debate about the link between foreign nationals and murder in Germany was triggered by riots in the eastern city of Chemnitz.

The Chemnitz debate
Last month, a German man was stabbed and later died from his wounds in Chemnitz. A 23-year-old Syrian and a 22-year-old Iraqi man were detained as suspects in the crime and charged with manslaughter.

News of the man's death circulated on social media, triggering protests by far-right sympathizers that, at times, clashed with police. Counter-protests erupted in response.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a statement decrying the riots, saying that "in no square and on no street should it come to rioting."


A German school headmaster in Frankfurt-am-Main told the mother of a student she should dress her daughter in a hijab, or Muslim head covering, so that Muslim students would stop bullying the girl, reported Your News Wire.

Angela Merkel’s pro-immigrant policies have tilted the balance in Germany so far in favor of Muslim refugees that blonde Christian girls are being encouraged to don Islamic headwear in order to fit in at school.

The mother told the German newspaper Bild, “My daughter was so massively bullied in her school by Muslim girls that we had to take her out of school for protection.“

She said her daughter was being bullied, mocked and physically attacked because, “She had blond hair, no headscarf, has a German-Hebrew name, and we are Christians.“

“My daughter had a nervous breakdown in fifth grade,” she continued. “She had bruises and massive fear of going to school.”

The headmaster’s remedy was for the girl to convert to Islam — or at least wear a headscarf in order to pass as a Muslim.

The family has since changed schools and reported that the girl was no longer bullied.

PJ Media reports: The idea that a young Christian German girl with blond hair and a German-Hebrew name would get mocked and beaten up by Muslim classmates in central Germany seems bad enough. The headmaster’s hijab response just made the bad situation worse.

Tragically, this is far from the first time women’s rights have been undermined in Germany, at the hands of Muslim migrants. Last year, a German judge acquitted a Turkish man of rape, ruling that his forced violent sex with a woman was not “culturally rape.”

While women in Iran are being imprisoned and tortured for the crime of removing a hijab in public and encouraging their sisters to do the same, it speaks volumes that a teacher in Germany would effectively abet Muslim bullying by suggesting the Christian girl simply adopt a Muslim practice to fit in.

Whether in Iran or in Germany, women should not be forced to wear a hijab, by law or by bullying. While it is important for Muslim women to have the religious freedom to wear the hijab in public, that does not extend to forcing other women to also adopt this practice.
