Femicide increasing in islamist Turkey
But the EU is not better example
by Roni Alasor
Brussels, 29 November 2019 - Middle East Diplomatic - 25 November was the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The studies from UN Office on Drugs and Crime found shows that around 45-55.000 women worldwide have been killed.
According the Turkish Foundation Hope (Umut Vakfı), the Platform We Will Stop Femicide and We Don`t Want To Die, so far from January to 1st December 2019, around 430 women have been killed in Turkey, while before the islamist and nationalist AKP took power in 2002, the crimes against women should be around 60-100 per year. It’s a dramatically increase.
In the last 3 months, September-October-November 2019, at the least 128 women have been killed mostly by near family members, often by their husband, brother, father or strangers. 8 of the 128 crimes happened in Kurdish region in Turkey (mainly in Mardin, Diyarbakir, Van and Agri), but the rest 120 crimes were in Turkish regions, mostly in Istanbul, Central-Turkish Anatolia, Turkish Mediterranean and Aegean costs.
Many experts and women organisations do believe that the islamisation of Turkey and latest economical crises is causing for more violence in turkish society. There are also many suicides in Turkey because of hard economical crises, even collective suicides as the latest examples “collective suicides” with cyanide where several family members are involved. According to data from Turkish Statistics Institute (TSI), 3161 people in Turkey ended their life in 2018. However, the suicides in Europe is more higher than in Turkey. While Turkey is placed in 2.6 suicides per 100.000 inhabitants, Belgium is one of the top in Europe with 17, worst some Baltic countries and East Europe going up to 25-29.
Femicide in Europe
In Europe, the number of femicide cases are around 3,000-3500 per year. In Belgium, at least 35-40 women are killed annually in the last years. If you compeer circa 11 million Belgium with the around 84 million Turkish population, than the number of killed women in Belgium are rising up to 350-400 per year.
EU / member country using billion Euro
EU/member countries are using billions of Euro each year for so called prevention against femicide without any effective result. The main question is where this money is going and how its use it ? Research show that some parts of this money is abused by some people which is using the family tragedies and femicide as a criminal industry: Some of those people in the industry receiving 150-350 Euro per hour and have good connection with some prosecutors and some police which is dealing with the industry of family conflicts. Worst if some of those poeple are paid to work against one of the partner who are in conflict or if they are paid by a state which is your politacal enemy !
The early prevention and other methods are not used in a effective way, but some times wrong methods are used in a very negatife way to confront partners more which is sharpening the conflict and prolonging the juridical process for the industry. Once they destroyed a family, the juridical process will take many years. In the end, all family are economical and psychological is ruined. Some people who are in charge of this cases have often low knowledge and low qualification about the background of the family conflicts.
Some female lawyers and female police officers who are working in Brussels police and dealing with women-family conflicts saying that “the early prevention is not our task. Why police / school-lawyer / psychologists have to work with early prevention before someone are injured or killed. We are busy with the result".
After studying eight (8) different family cases in Brussels region here is my conclusion : The way the "officers of industry" are handling the family conflicts and the methods they are using is often catastrophic for all family members who in the end become as victim of the industry. Worst for immigration families and parents with lower-incom. But the biggest victim of those cases are children who are often ending in narco-alcohol industry and other crimes under name of "freedom". Some parents also getting difficulties with alcohol and narcotics. Some of them losing money, friends, job, become weaken and getting agresive against lies, provocations and injustice. This is very alarming red line which is resulting violation and any kind of criminal acts. Symptoms of serious weaknesses can colaps one of the partner who can hurt them self and others. Those kind of victims should be followed and helped by professional people, but not by those who are self victim of different kind of problems. The wealthy EU should to think seriously why every year around 60.000 people committing suicide ? It makes cirka 165 lived per day.
A serious investigation is necessary
The unprofessional “experts” involved in the family-industry, which is often based for job and money than to use professional prevention before family tragedies happening, is one of the common big problem in many EU countries. Studies shows that especially former USSR satellite countries/East Europe and Brussels region in Belgium is one of the worst examples in EU. EU and its member countries should make a serious investigation how the money is used, for which purposes, but also the quality of the “professional teams” is crucial, as well as their “independent” altitude and ethical values.
Violation against men is taboo
The statics regarding all kind of violation against men, including social, psychological, economical and physical violation and crimes is almost a taboo to speak about or to have facts and figures. The “Me Too” “Me Too” movement become more and more "populare" in nowadays and used/abused as well while the crimes against the homophile and transsexual men is also growing
