A 48-year-old Muslim woman in Germany had her face literally melted off by her Afghan migrant husband with a pot of boiling oil. And why, you may ask?
Well, she had the temerity to lose some weight.
According to Die Welt (via WND), the wife, identified only as Homa, was attacked by her husband Mohamed while she was in the shower. Her husband told her to “have a look” at something; when she opened the shower curtain, a pot of boiling oil was thrown on her.
Burns covered 44 percent of her body, the skin on her face was melted off and the arm she raised to protect herself was fused shut.
After the attack, Mohamed left their house in Hamburg-Harburg, which is when Homa was able to call authorities. Even when paramedics came to help her after 30 minutes, she still feared that her husband might come back to kill her.
“I was afraid that my husband would have stabbed me with a knife,” Homa said in testimony.
And what was her husband’s reasoning for the attack?
“It was about the core of our marriage,” Mohamad told the court in testimony on Monday. “I suspected that she wanted another man. Suddenly, she was wearing different clothes and losing weight. So, I wanted to make her unattractive for other men. I was afraid of the shame. I wanted to show her that I am not weak!”
Different clothes and losing weight. That’s all it took for this man to throw oil in his wife’s face.
He also issued an “apology.”
“The attack on my wife — I’m sorry,” Mohamed said. “I lost control of myself, but I did not want to kill her.”
Well, that should be a relief.
Keep in mind that such “honor” killings aren’t rare. In Germany alone, a Muslim father killed his daughter because she was shoplifting condoms. He wasn’t terribly upset about the shoplifting, but because she had shoplifted condoms, it meant his daughter was sexually active and therefore needed to die.
And then there was happened on New Years Eve in Cologne, where a rash of sexual assaults and major vandalism were allegedly perpetrated by Muslim migrants:
Honor killings, rape, assault, subjugation of women — these are not the values we embrace. We cannot pretend to countenance them for reasons of political correctness, either. It’s time to stand up for Western values before we lose them.
