The Swedish authorities seem to be noticing some of the more illiberal aspects to their multicultural paradise. The following is a machine translation from this Swedish newspaper. While its a tad rough, you will get the idea. Sooner or later, even the Swedes had to notice that Islam will clash with any other notion of basic human rights and the dignity and person-hood of women.
TYRANNY We note that honor repression has been accused of racism, but forced marriages exist in Sweden. (FP). Therefore, the government presents today a new strategy to prevent young are married against their will, writes Nyamko Sabuni (PF).
A girl in Malmö was married when she was in fifth grade. She was twelve years old. The following year she started in sixth grade. Still too young to drive a moped, see adult films at the cinema or even get the scores. By that time she lived with her husband and gave birth to her first child. This was depicted in a series of articles about forced marriages in Sydsvenska Dagbladet. At least 25 high school girls Scanian was reported to be married every summer, but that the community responded.
It has long been lacking a solid knowledge of forced marriage in Sweden. Those of us who warned of honor repression has been questioned. Like when the Socialist government investigators Masoud Kamali accused us of fomenting racism.
But culture relative addicts can no longer deny that this oppression affects thousands of young people. A number of institutions on behalf of the Government reported on the prevalence of violence and oppression. According to the Youth Board, there are at least 70 000 young people who feel that parents, religion and culture set limits on who they can marry.
In two studies (Socialstyrelsen Stockholm University in 2007 and 2009) found that among young people living with limitations related to marriage are those who are vulnerable to psychological and physical violence by parents or other relatives. A review of county court judgments, which were seized as young as a result of, for example, domestic violence, shows that one third of all convictions in 2007 were girls (who) were (victims of) honor (related crimes). Most had been victims of violence by relatives, sometimes for years. Half had been threatened to death. Almost all had received themselves take the initiative to seek help.
The picture is alarming. Today the government decides on a strategy for continued work to prevent young people are married against their will. The focus is on strengthening prevention, support and protection, improved collaboration between agencies and increased knowledge.
. • Protection against forced marriages and child marriages are tightened. Investigator of Justice Goran Lambertz Council, has been asked to suggest how including forced marriages and child marriages may be criminalized.
• Rehabilitation of the victims of honor crimes. Children who are disposed to honor because of repression may have been victims of violence for a long time. They could be threatened by the family and relatives during the time they are placed in special housing. The government will decide whether to develop a guide for support and rehabilitation of children and young people who are victims of honor related violence or oppression. Support for the girls who seek There are girls who feel intense pressure to prove they have not had sexual intercourse before the wedding night. Therefore, looking for some help in clinical care. My starting point is that these girls need help and support but it is not the way to offer health care operations. In order to assure the quality of the hospitality of these girls is the National Centre for women’s safety given the task of developing a manual for health care.
• National public awareness campaign. Children and young people should have knowledge of their rights and the ways in which authorities and NGOs are working to strengthen their rights. The government will decide on a national information campaign targeted at young people in secondary schools in order to prevent and avoid exposure to violence and oppression.
