Lacking in money, a would-be Syrian refugee offered his wife's repeated rape as payment for the family's passage from war-torn Syria to Europe, the Clarion Project website reports today (January 7, 2016).
This was compounded by the husband, who participated in the daily rape of his wife during their journey to the European mainland. Islamic law treats women as second-class citizens, and requires women to be under the authority of their husbands or -- if not married -- under a male member of the household.
Subsequently, his wife obtained a restraining order against her husband. Now living in Berlin, Germany, the woman fears her husband or another family member could try to kill her because of the shame she brought upon the family.
Soeren Kern of the Gatestone Institute -- a non-profit international policy council and think tank -- recently wrote: "A growing number of women and young girls housed in refugee shelters in Germany are being raped, sexually assaulted, and even forced into prostitution by male asylum seekers, according to German social work organizations with first-hand knowledge of the situation."
