Tomorrow, Wednesday, I'll be enjoying at rather short notice a little light radio work, details at right. It starts at 12 noon Eastern. Hope you can dial us up.
AN Afghan migrant has admitted the rape and murder of a medical student, who also worked voluntarily at a refugee centre.
Maria Ladenburger, the daughter of a high-ranking EU official, was returning from a party in the university city of Freiburg in Germany when she was assaulted on a cycle path.
She was raped and then drowned before her body was found in the River Dreisam.
Under the insane rules of German crime reporting, the murderer is only mentioned in the press by his first name - Hussein. In fact, he's Hussein Kavari. You can see a picture of him here. Quite the charmer. Very assimilated in terms of his fashion style, if not in anything that matters.
Poor Miss Ladenburger was 19 years old, the daughter of Dr Clemens Ladenburger, who's a senior advisor at the European Commission's legal directorate. Whether or not she is as Saunders sneers an "urban myth", she was certainly the victim of other kinds of myths, and yet another sacrifice on the altar of utopian illusions.
Meanwhile, in non-refugee news:
Toronto neurosurgeon Mohammed Shamji, 40, charged with murder in death of physician wife
SteynOnline reader Tess Jensen notes the curious priorities of that CBC headline:
Mohammed gets top billing including profession and age; the generic wife, just a lowly, nameless doctor behind.
Below, in a font 1/4 the size: "Elana Shamji's body found in Vaughan, Ont..." - found in a suitcase. The doctor's twitter account was Elana Fric Shamji - i.e. the CBC took the liberty of excising the European name. Nowhere does the CBC article inform that Fric "had filed divorce papers", "was in good spirits" and was "looking toward her new life." (Toronto Sun). Of course, a phrase like "suspected honour killing" will never appear except perhaps in the Islamophobic realm of the "far right".
Upon her marriage, the late Dr Fric converted to Islam. Miss Ladenburger wound up in the River Dreisam, Dr Fric "in a suitcase" under a bridge over the West Humber River. Western feminists stand silent before the rivers of blood.
In London, a 72-year-old Mohammed has been jailed for raping a nine-year-old girl repeatedly over a three-year period.
But don't worry, the Germans have the solution:
Migrants are being taught how to attract women and sexually arouse them in German seminars run by a pickup expert known as 'Mr Flirt'.
You may scoff at Mr Flirt's technique, but in a pilot program Angela, a 62-year-old German woman, found herself attracted to 1.3 million Muslim migrants in just one year!
Oh, wait. Breaking news:
Angela Merkel has called for a burqa ban in Germany and said the refugee crisis "must never be repeated".
Now she tells us. Too late for Maria Ladenburger, alas.
PS You have to admire this Finnish gal's spunk.
