Swedish Court Sentences Iraqi Immigrant to 8 Years for Stabbing Sister 107 Times in Brutal Honor Killing

But don't ever forget that the greatest threat to Western civilization is Islamophobia.

STOCKHOLM–A Swedish court on Tuesday sentenced a 17-year-old man to eight years in prison for stabbing his sister 107 times in what judges called an honour killing.

The teen, who was 16 at the time, was convicted of killing his 19-year-old sister at her home in the southwestern town of Landskrona on April 23 last year.

He had called emergency services and said a masked attacker had killed her, but investigators said his story didn't hold up against evidence found at the scene.

"The court found the man guilty of the murder and that the motive was to restore the family's honour," the Lund district court said in a statement.

It said that "despite the man's young age," it was sentencing him "to a long prison sentence, and has set it at eight years."

The names and nationalities of the brother and sister were not disclosed, but media described the family as being of Iraqi origin.

The sister had told friends and family that she was worried her life was in danger, after she fled from Iraq, where she had been reportedly married against her will to an older man whom she claimed beat and raped her.

Once in Sweden, she contacted social services in Landskrona, but she said they did not take her family's threats against her seriously, Swedish media reported. (Continue Reading.)

8 years?

An embarrassment to humanity.

How about the death sentence? Any premeditated murder should result in such a sentence. To let people like that live is an insult to the rest of humanity.

I hate liberal/secular countries when it comes to morality. They don't seem to understand the nature of evil. In fact, they often don't even know what evil truly is. Evil in many cases, is when equal rights are not given to homosexuals who want to marry each other. Evil is when your opponent doesn't want to adopt their view or has the opposite view from theirs. Of course, Muslims are all so willing to step in and abuse that liberal ideology to the benefit of their religion.

On a bright note, eventually all of this will backfire on both the liberals and the Muslims. I know that God's justice will be done in the end. Amen!

So a person's life is only worth 8 years of her murderer's life??? And he lied saying that she had been attacked by someone else, and brutally murdered her and is only sentenced to 8 years????
Where is the justice!!!!!
