Honor-Violence Threats in Denmark

The Middle Eastern concept of honor-killing in which males decide what is or is not “honorable” for women has spread to Denmark which increasingly is receiving immigrants from that area of the world. Since last August, there were 154 reports of threatened violence against women in Denmark. The good news is young Middle Eastern women have enough confidence in the Danish police to report these threats. Fortunately, the threats have been verbal rather than physical. Hopefully, a new generation of Danish Muslim women will end the concept of honor-killing.
