Verdict is Death

Sila Sahin posed on the cover of, and did a 12 page pictorial spread inside, a German version of Playboy Islamic Storm Clouds. She acts in a German ‘soap’ and according to her the Playboy pictorial constitutes a reaction to the slavery of her youth. Raised in Germany by two traditional Islamic Turkish parents, I’m quite certain she felt a bit restrained growing up. Although I think acting and being successful on an independent basis would have been enough of a statement, the pictorial was apparently meant to be a stark statement of rebellion. It has achieved the desired result – her Mother and Father are shocked and Mom cut off all ties. With the number of ‘honor’ killings in Germany’s Muslim immigrant population, the cops better put an ankle bracelet on Dad. Ms. Sahin is getting threats now to her life both veiled and outright.

A kebab shop owner, asked on German TV what he would do if Sila were his daughter, replied: "I would kill her. I really mean that. That doesn't fit with my culture." And what culture is that… why the culture of death… of course.

Since these pious followers of Islam supposedly don’t look at pornography (they only read the articles) what would it matter to any of them what Ms. Sahin does? It certainly shouldn’t rate a death sentence. It used to be when kids rebelled against parents they were left alone to fall on their face or grow up to realize rebellion ain’t always as romantic as it seemed in youth. In Sharia Law, the Islamists cure this rebellious period with death. I pray Ms. Sahin avoids the cure.

Just horrific. I hope she is safe.

She's gotten a whole new batch of threats, Charles. I doubt she'll ever be safe... even from her own family.
