Titled “The Great Divide: How Westerners and Muslims View Each Other,” the new Pew study reveals that Muslim countries generally view Westerners as violent and immoral. Large majorities of even British Muslims think Westerners are “selfish” and “arrogant.”

Above all, foreign Muslims hate American foreign policy, which in a disturbingly large share of their minds justifies terrorism. Fully 57% of Jordanians think it’s OK to attack civilians in jihad. A simple majority of Egyptians agree. … Muslims also blame us for their lack of prosperity. Nearly half of Turks, among the better educated of Mideast Muslims, say Western policies rob them of wealth. … A majority of Americans more accurately blame Muslim government corruption and a lack of education for chronic Muslim poverty. … Though they are beneficiaries of $10 billion in direct U.S. aid since 9/11, Pakistanis still hold us in contempt. Pew found that most think we are “selfish, immoral and greedy.” … majorities of Muslims in Pakistan and the Mideast think we are less “respectful” of women than they are. … Americans overwhelmingly blame Arab Muslims, while Muslims abroad, including 56% of British Muslims, insist someone else carried out the attacks.

“Den netop offentliggjorde undersøgelse Pisa Etnisk 2009 viser, at 38 procent af tosprogede elever ikke har gode nok læsekompetencer til at kunne gennemføre en ungdomsuddannelse.”

“Børn med indvandrerbaggrund er markant dårligere til at læse og regne end deres danske kammerater. Faktisk er de, hvad der svarer til to skoleår bagud, viser Pisa Etnisk 2009.

- Vi blev faktisk meget overrasket, da vi så resultaterne. Det er forfærdeligt, at der faktisk ikke er sket nogen positiv udvikling, når vi ser på gennemsnittet af de tre domæner, siger Pisa-konsortiets formand professor Niels Egelund.

“Siden 2000, hvor Pisa foretog en lignende undersøgelse, er gabet mellem, hvor godt etnisk danske børn og børn med indvandrerbaggrund klarer sig i skolen, ikke blevet mindre.

Gabet er fra 2000 til 2009 reduceret med syv point for læsning, er øget med syv point for naturvidenskab, mens der ikke er nogen betydende forskel for matematik. Det er på trods af stor fokus på blandt andet dansk som andetsprog.

Forskellene mellem elever med og uden indvandrerbaggrund er størst i naturvidenskab med omkring 90 point, mindst i matematik med omkring 70 point, mens den for læsning er godt 70 point.”

“- Hver 10. muslimske barn deltager i fritiden i religiøs undervisning. Derfor er det vigtigt, at vi nu for første gang har fået indblik i undervisningen på koranskolerne, siger integrationsminister Søren Pind med henvisning til to nye undersøgelser, som Integrationsministeriet i dag har offentliggjort. … Det er meget bekymrende, at nogle undervisere på koranskoler udtrykker holdninger, der er i modstrid med de grundlæggende kulturelle normer, som det danske samfund bygger på. Det er uacceptabelt”, siger integrationsministeren.”

The number of women murdered in a year in Turkey shot up 1,400 percent between 2002 and 2009, according to data recently revealed by the country’s justice minister. Eighty-three women were murdered in 2003, 164 in 2004, 317 in 2005, 663 in 2006, 1,011 in 2007, 806 in 2008 and 953 during the first seven months of 2009, the last date for which data was available, according to Ergin.
Altogether, 33.7 percent of women said they considered suicide as a solution to their problems. For those with less education, this number is 34.1 percent, while 37.6 of higher educated women have also considered taking their own lives. Murder a fact of life for women in Turkey

Alle avisen mordeksempler er udført af mand eller nære slægtninge. Hurriyet skriver at 41,9 % af de tyrkiske kvinder oplever fysisk og seksuel vold. Vildan Yirmibesoglu fra et tyrkisk kvindecenter sagde i sommeren 2010 til Jyllandsposten at tre af fire kvinder i hele Tyrkiet i gennemsnit mindst en gang om måneden udsættes for fysisk eller psykisk vold. Ikke så mærkeligt at godt en tredjedel af Tyrkiets kvinder har selvmordstanker.

“Community perceptions of moral education as a response to crime by young Pakistani males in Bradford”

Marta Bolognani, Lahore University of Management Sciences, Pakistan

“Summary

While increasing attention from academics and the media focuses on the lives of Muslim
communities in the west, little attention has so far been given to insiders’ own perceptions of their
social lives. This paper, borne out of broader research on their perceptions of crime, aims to
analyse some internal discourses on moral education. The ethnographic data, collected between
October 2004 and July 2005, is used to try to show the potentials and the pitfalls of formal (in
mosques, madrasahs and schools) and informal (in family and community) means of provision of
moral education. The paper argues that prevention of deviance through moral education seems to
be neglected in favour of punishment, retrieval or rehabilitation. Female deviance, however, seems
to be addressed by prevention strategies that are based on protection and the limitation of certain
interactions, rather than on moral education.

Conclusion

Conclusion

This paper has shown how families, although expected to be the core of moral
education and social control practices, are seen by many Bradford Pakistanis as
failing to provide moral guidance and nurture for mainly three reasons: lack of
parental skills, lack of interaction with the outer world, including schools and
tendency to delegate moral education to others, especially mosques and madrasahs.

Faith was a source from which many of the notions of good and evil were drawn.
Proximity with pious environments was generally considered a ‘protective factor’ in
terms of crime but not even this was deemed as a completely safe path for crime
prevention. While faith was thought of as able to help individuals who had gone onto
a wrong path, it was generally considered a variable independent of human will and
therefore could not directly be used in crime prevention: humans cannot control
faith. However, many believed that an upbringing that emphasised Muslim identity
may lead to some positive results. On their part, mosques were depicted by many as
structures trapped in power and blackmail struggles. The problems of incompetent
imams and the language barrier were also mentioned, together with a growing
interest in international and ‘ummatic’ problems, rather than local concerns. These
issues were reflected in the critical views on madrasahs and religious education.
However, religious practice through English as a medium was generally evaluated as
a safer strategy as it was the teaching of universal Islamic moral values that would
benefit the community through encouraging the inner change of individuals.
Schools, on the other hand, were not considered as conveyors of moral education,
but of skills. Furthermore, inner city schools were considered a place where a
‘contamination’ from bad characters could take place. Overall, research participants
seemed to agree that in Bradford moral education was perpetually delegated and no
agent was ever found to take it over. Prevention of deviance through moral
education, therefore, was perceived to be unsuccessful overall. Social control in
terms of punishment, retrieval or rehabilitation was a more common approach for
boys, though not for girls. Female deviance in fact seemed to be addressed through
prevention strategies that were based on protection and the restriction of certain
interactions, rather than through moral education.”

“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.”
