Turkey and the EU: Will they Split before they Marry?
If Ankara enters into accession talks this week with the European Union, it will do so bitter and disillusioned. Support for Turkey’s move toward the West is diminishing back home.

The Murder of a Turkish Woman in Berlin: A German Court Goes Face to Face with Honor Killings

Germany’s Turkish Minority: Choosing the Lesser of Two Evils
Turkish-Germans avoid the conservative Christian Democrats. That, at least, is the traditional wisdom and, given the CDU’s opposition to Turkish EU membership, hardly surprising. But reforms introduced by Chancellor Schröder’s Social Democrats are none too popular either. For many in Germany’s largest minority, the autumn vote is a choice between two evils. more…

Europe’s Muslim Women: Best Selling Books Tell the Horrors of Forced Marriage

Terror: The Second Front
Europe has become the prime target for al-Qaida. But how does one protect subway trains and buses from attacks?

Following the terror attacks in London, Europe is once again about radical Islamists in their midst. Interior Minister Otto Schily, 72, spoke with SPIEGEL about the decentralization of al-Qaida, the risk of further attacks in Europe, and what — if anything — can be done about it. more…

German Papers: Did the Terrorists Come from ‘Londonistan’
Three days after the terror attacks in London, Great Britain’s Muslim community is being scrutinized on the editorial pages. Intelligence officials and police in Britain deridingly call parts of the city “Londonistan,” and some estimate thousands of Muslims living on the island trained in al-Qaida camps in Afghanistan. But more tempered voices call for caution in singling out the Muslim community for blame. more…

The Changing Threat of Al-Qaida: How Widespread is Terrorism in Europe?
The London bombings prove one thing: investigators still have not infiltrated the world of radical Islam in Europe. Hampering their efforts are increasingly sophisticated cells that move undetected across borders and individuals who lead seemingly inocuous lives –until they attack. Those attacks can come at any time, and it seems, can happen anywhere. more…

The Death of a Muslim Woman: “The Whore Lived Like a German”
In the past four months, six Muslim women living in Berlin have been brutally murdered by family members. Their crime? Trying to break free and live Western lifestyles. Within their communities, the killers are revered as heroes for preserving their family dignity. How can such a horrific and shockingly archaic practice be flourishing in the heart of Europe? The deaths have sparked momentary outrage, but will they change the grim reality for Muslim women? more…

The Van Gogh Murder: Out of Hiding
In November, a radical Muslim shot and killed Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh. But the killer’s actual target was Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali immigrant who moved her way out of the working class and into parliament, while championing the cause of Holland’s Muslim women. The uncompromising reform-minded ex-Muslim refuses to be intimidated or to cease with her razor sharp tongue lashings of Islam. more…

Integration in Europe: How Germany Has Failed Its Immigrants

Turkey and the EU: The Pros and Cons

Muslim Integration: Germany’s Lost Daughters
Thousands of Turkish women live like slaves in Germany. They are locked into apartments, beaten and kept deliberately ignorant. Their men don’t want them integrated and — until now — neither did Germany. That, say women’s rights workers, politicians and social workers, has to change. more…
