(BONN, 11.4.2012) Zwar sind Männer und Frauen in Afghanistan laut Verfassung gleichberechtigt, aber Männer noch etwas gleichberechtigter, wie der 150 köpfige „Gelehrtenrat“, das höchste religiöse Gremium Afghanistans kürzlich verkündete: „Männer haben eine grundlegende Position, Frauen sind zweitrangig.“

(English) Honor killings take place today not only in the eastern part of Turkey. In Germany, too, and in the other countries of Europe, women die “for reasons of honor”. Till now, German criminal investigative departments do not compile any separate statistics, but unofficial statistics quote at least 49 honor killings or attempts at such in Germany between 1996 and 2005. The United Nations estimate that ca. 5000 honor killings (along with a high number of unreported cases) have been committed world-wide.
(English) “Multi-culti” – a catchword we all know. A concept that today is looked at rather critically but, in past decades, was to a large extent a guideline for the shared life of Christians and Muslims in Europe, even if by far not everyone was aware of this premise. Multi-culti – a result of an historical development into which we have stumbled rather than consciously planned and controlled. A development that, in addition, resulted from the false intellectual premises that accompanied the contemplation of the migration of Muslim workers to Germany, as well as from indifference and ignorance.
