Lost honour - the story of the Sürücü

Prix Europa 2011 31 October 2011

JURY CITATION

"This is a film about a murder. The victim, a young woman gunned down at a bus stop in Berlin. The murderer is her brother. It is an "honour killing" because Hatun Surucu lived "like a German". In a remarkable and thought-provoking series of interviews with the murderer, who is still in jail, his family and friends, the filmmakers explore the evidence behind the case. Through this highly personal testimony, a much more disturbing picture emerges - the harsh and uncomfortable reality that integration has failed and that Turks and Germans exist in "parallel societies". Story telling and film-making at its best."

By Bruce Bawer

The recent arrival in my mail of a book entitled Islam: Critical Essays about a Political Religion has prompted a number of thoughts. Edited by Sam and Wim van Rooy and published late last year, it is a massive compendium, just under 800 pages long. It is in Dutch. (The title is actually De Islam: Kritische Essays over een Politieke Religie.) And it is richly comprehensive, with thirty-four essays on such subjects as the Islamization of Europe, Islam in India, the term "Islamophobia,” jihad in Africa, dhimmitude, apostasy, the myth of Andalusia, taqiyya, Islam and the West, sharia law, Islam’s "fellow travelers,” Jews under Islam, Christians under Islam, Islam and women, Islam and slavery, Islam and fascism, and Islam vs. democracy.
