Family Raped And Killed Kurdish Woman In Britain

When you hear some intellectuals babbling on in favor of multiculturalism ask them if we should import cultures that find honor killings acceptable.

A father who ordered the killing of his daughter after finding out she had a boyfriend has been jailed for life.

Banaz Mahmod, 20, was raped and tortured before being strangled and buried in a suitcase in Birmingham.

Her Iraqi Kurd father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, of Mitcham, south London, will serve at least 20 years.

Her uncle Ari Mahmod, 50, who helped arrange the murder, and killer Mohammed Hama, 30, got life terms and will serve at least 23 and 17 years respectively.

They laughed while raping her.

A series of secret prison recordings showed that Banaz Mahmod’s killers had laughed as they raped and tortured her, before Mohamad Hama, a hired thug, stamped on her neck while strangling her with a ligature to “force out her soul”.

At least two of the killers got away by fleeing Britain.

At least two of the gang of killers have since fled to Iraq.

An older sister who is now hiding for the family was in the house while her sister was killed.

Ari Mahmod, 51, recruited a gang of thugs who tortured, raped and strangled his niece Banaz Mahmod, 20, before cramming her body into a suitcase and burying it in a pit, where it lay for three months. The brothers had decided Ms Mahmod was to be killed because she had fallen in love with a man they felt was unsuitable.

Ms Mahmod's father, Mahmod Mahmod, 54, left his home in Mitcham, south-west London, on the morning of the murder so that she could be killed there. An older sister was in the house at the time.

An associate of Ari's, Mohamad Hama, 31, who was recorded in prison boasting of kicking and stamping on Ms Mahmod's neck "to get her soul out", was also sentenced to life yesterday. He pleaded guilty to murder.

The minimum sentences ranged only from 17 to 23 years. Why should these men ever be given the chance to walk free again?

The older sister wore a burkah while testifying. She's afraid to show her face.

She was put into an arranged marriage at age 16 but fled Kurdistan to get out of it.

She was kept away from Western influences, entered an arranged marriage at the age of 16 with a member of her clan and was expected to fulfill the role of subservient wife and mother.

Thanks to immigration honor crimes are rising in Britain.

Ms Sood, who specialises in Asian family cases, told BBC Radio Five Live "honour crimes of some sort" whether or not they resulted in death, were becoming more common in the UK.

"But certainly honour crimes are being perpetrated in the hundreds every year," she said.

I reject multiculturalism. We should kick the Muslims out of the West. Pay the legal residents to leave and round up all the illegals.

The sentencing for murder in Britain is ridiculous. I cannot count the number of heinous British murders I've heard about where killers could be out in as little as 20 years.

How the assumption of good faith can still be given to those who support bringing in large additional
numbers, of those with customs as barbarous as that, is far from clear. Their motivations cannot be good.
Any ideal which says we must import evils of that kind is itself demonstrated to be corrupted.

I think its sloppy analysis to conflate Islam with the kind of tribal behaviour highlighted by this crime. This honour killing nonsense is endemic throughout the third world, and you will find it wherever tribalism is strong - from Pakistan to Papua New Guinea to Paraguay.

PS: Note that these scum appear to be Kurds - allegedly the great white hope of securing northern Iraq...

I agree John.

The Left are the ones that brought Mohamed Atta and his friends here. If they didn't reject multi-cult after the 911 attacks, there is no way they would ever reject it. The monstrosity of "honor" killings will not make the Left stop immigration. It's clear by now that nothing will make them stop until the Left itself is ended. This will take, I think, total societal collapse.

Here's some crazy British 'justice':
http://ukcommentators.blogspot.com/2007/07/judge-dorrians-at-it-again.html

"He was punched in the face as he lay on the ground before the backpacker took a run and jumped full force on his head, the court heard. Virbickas checked on the condition of the soldier before stamping hard on his face up to 10 times, then kicking the unconscious man."

He got 4 years, which in Britain means 2 or less.
