“Familier hjælper med voldtægt af tvangsgiftede piger
Ritzau | 10. februar 2011
Advokat oplever, at stadig flere unge kvinder udsættes for voldtægt i tvangsægteskaber

Et stigende antal unge, danske kvinder med mellemøstlig baggrund udsættes for vold og voldtægt i deres tvangsægteskaber.

Derfor går den århusianske advokat Simon Eilrich nye veje i et forsøg på at hjælpe kvinderne. Ifølge advokaten sker overgrebene ofte med pigernes familiers viden eller medvirken. Så han går nu efter at få de pårørende dømt.
Advokaten førte sidste år 12 sager for danske piger med mellemøstlig baggrund.
Flere førte til, at fætre eller brødre blev dømt for medvirken til vold og voldtægt.
Hos Landsorganisationen af Kvindecentre, LOKK, har næsten halvdelen af kvinderne på centrene - 46 procent - en anden baggrund end dansk.

LOKKs krisetelefon for unge danskere med mellemøstlig baggrund, der lever i spændingsfeltet mellem æresbegreber og dansk kultur, har på et år oplevet næsten en fordobling i antallet af opkald. Krisetelefonen fik 833 opkald i 2010 mod 440 henvendelser året før.”

“The world’s Muslim population is expected to increase by about 35% in the next 20 years, rising from 1.6 billion in 2010 to 2.2 billion by 2030, according to new population projections by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life.

Globally, the Muslim population is forecast to grow at about twice the rate of the non-Muslim population over the next two decades – an average annual growth rate of 1.5% for Muslims, compared with 0.7% for non-Muslims. If current trends continue, Muslims will make up 26.4% of the world’s total projected population of 8.3 billion in 2030, up from 23.4% of the estimated 2010 world population of 6.9 billion.

While the global Muslim population is expected to grow at a faster rate than the non-Muslim population, the Muslim population nevertheless is expected to grow at a slower pace in the next two decades than it did in the previous two decades. From 1990 to 2010, the global Muslim population increased at an average annual rate of 2.2%, compared with the projected rate of 1.5% for the period from 2010 to 2030.”

“CEPOS offentliggør i dag et notat om forskellige befolkningsgruppers nettobidrag på de offentlige finanser. Nettobidraget dækker over persongruppernes betaling af indkomstskat og afgifter fratrukket deres træk på den offentlige service og overførselsindkomster. Beregningerne er udført af DREAM-gruppen for CEPOS.

“Det fremgår, at indvandrere og efterkommere fra mindre udviklede lande svækker de offentlige finanser med knap 16 mia. kr. i 2010.”

“I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came, and if you asked me for my observations, the other communities have easier integration – friends, intermarriages and so on, Indians with Chinese, Chinese with Indians – than Muslims. That’s the result of the surge from the Arab states.”He added: ”I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam.”

“AN incredible 90,000 bogus students were suspected of entering Britain last year.

A probe to root out dodgy private colleges offering places to people from overseas has found that more than 600 were not “trusted”.

Immigration Minister Damian Green, 55, said the opportunity for abuse in the system was “enormous”, with a fifth of last year’s 280,000 student visas raising question marks.

Experts worked out that it costs taxpayers £500million because of jobs being taken by migrants posing as students.”

“Befolkningens syn på trykking av Muhammed-karikaturene har endret seg de fem siste årene. Nå mener et flertall at det er riktig å trykke tegningene.

I 2006 mente 25,3 prosent at Magazinet gjorde rett i å trykke tegningene. 49,6 prosent mente det var galt.

I en ny måling som Infact har gjort for DagenMagazinet svarer nå 53,3 prosent at det var rett å publisere tegningene. 32,6 prosent mener at det var galt.

Gruppen som ikke har noen mening i saken har på de fem årene krympet fra 25,1 prosent til 14,2 prosent.”
