The Amsterdam municipality announced Thursday that the municipal honor murders hotline received 84 calls this year.
In 45% of the cases there was an issue of physical violence. The rest were mental or other forms of pressure. 85% of the victims are women. ISLAMIC WOMEN.
The Amsterdam municipality, police and public prosecutor signed an agreement Thursday where they officially agreed to deal with honor related violence.
In honor murders, an Islamic family member is punished for tainting the family honor. Often this has to do with chastity. In Rotterdam the authorities joined together a while ago in order to deal with honor related violence.

I guess the US soon will need an Honorcide Hotline, too.
The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother’s Day 2008.
The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law.
We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.
If you wish to support STOP HONORCIDE!, please send us an email with your name, title (if applicable) and a short statement of support.
