Theresa (don't know her last name) has translated a Norwegian news article into English. Immigrant men in Norway beat their families.
It is more common [in Norway] that men with immigrant backgrounds hit their wives, than do men of ethnic Norwegian backgrounds -- this is demonstrated by the numbers from police and crisis centers from around the country.
Eighty percent of the women that seek out the Crisis Center in Oslo have immigrant backgrounds. [NB. Immigrants make up 22.3% of the Oslo population.*] Nearly all are married to men of foreign origin, discloses the center director, Tone Skjelbostad, to Dagsavisen (the day paper).
Also, nation-wide the numbers show that foreign women staying at crisis centers that are married to immigrant men are clearly over represented comapred to the total number of immigrants [in the country]. In total, 48% of all women at crisis centers had foreign backgrounds in 2004. Sixty-eight percent of these women were married to foreign men.
Of those not married to foreign men I wonder what percentage are married the sons of foreign men or what percentage were beaten by their foreign brothers or fathers.
"We know that there is much violence against women in cultures where men have a lot of power and there is little parity [equality]. Now are there many immigrants from such countries in Norway, and the violent element with foreign backgrounds is growing," said the director of the Crisis Senter Secretariat, Tove Smaadahl.
The women get beaten by their families for dating Norwegian men? Sounds like it:
Many of the foreign women at the crisis centers are also being exposed to [victims of] violence after relationships with ethnically Norwegian men.
"Dark numbers" [lit.]
The numbers from the Oslo police district show that around 70% of family violence cases have attackers or victims, or both, that are of backgrounds other than Norwegian.
So you have to figure that those from the Muslim countries, who are only a fraction of the 8%, are doing an awful lot of beating to be the cause of such a large fraction of total beatings. Repeat after me: Muslim immigration is bad.
Update: Check out this Christian Science Monitor article by Bruce Bawer entitled "Not all Muslims want to integrate".
But enduring segregation is a fact of life in France as it is elsewhere on the continent. Millions of "French Muslims" don't consider themselves French. A government report leaked last March depicted an increasingly two-track educational system: More and more Muslim students refuse to sing, dance, participate in sports, sketch a face, or play an instrument. They won't draw a right angle (it looks like part of the Christian cross). They won't read Voltaire and Rousseau (too antireligion), Cyrano de Bergerac (too racy), Madame Bovary (too pro-women), or Chrétien de Troyes (too chrétien). One school has separate toilets for "Muslims" and "Frenchmen"; another obeyed a Muslim leader's call for separate locker rooms because "the circumcised should not have to undress alongside the impure."
Many Muslims, wanting to enjoy Western prosperity but repelled by Western ways, travel regularly back to their homelands. From Oslo, where I live, there are more direct flights every week to Islamabad than to the US. A recent Norwegian report noted that among young Norwegians of Pakistani descent, family honor depends largely on "not being perceived as Norwegian - as integrated."
Again, Muslim immigration is bad.
