Scandalous: Egyptian Woman Killed in German Court Drama on Wednesday

The 32-year-old woman was killed in a court in Dresden before she could testify against her attacker.

Cairo -- A woman stabbed to death in a German court was an Egyptian who had sued her attacker after he insulted her for wearing the Islamic headscarf, Egyptian newspapers reported on Friday.

Marwa al-Sherbini, 32, who was killed in a court in Dresden on Wednesday, was the wife of Egyptian academic Elwi Ali Okaz who was also hurt in the incident and is now in critical condition in hospital, the state-owned Al-Akhbar reported.

The attacker stabbed Sherbini "shortly before she was to give evidence in an appeal lodged by the man against a conviction for insulting her over wearing the hijab," said the state-owned Egyptian Gazette.

The 28-year-old man, identified only as Axel W., was overpowered and was being investigated for manslaughter over the killing of the woman, a spokesman for the Dresden prosecutor's office said.

Magdi al-Sayed, press officer at the German embassy in Cairo, said the case was isolated and did not reflect German attitude towards Muslims.

"It is a criminal act -- it has nothing to do with persecution against Muslims," Sayed told the Gazette.

  1. Why aren't the European reporters and newspapers talking about this story in the first person? All of the reports on line are from Egyptian reporters and newspapers. This did not happen in Egypt. It happened in Germany in a German Court, in front of German police and a German judge. Why is it that NONE of the German news outlets are speaking and reporting about what happened to this poor and precious mother?

    what about her child what about her family ?

    suppose that this crime signed by Muslim one against a non-Muslim
    Woman what were the world reaction be?

    Where is Racism? in Islam or other
    Where is Terrorism? in Islam or other

    But we know the reason of All that "Allah told us in Qur'an "

    2|105|Neither those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture nor the idolaters love that there should be sent down unto you any good thing from your Lord. But Allah chooseth for His mercy whom He will, and Allah is of infinite bounty.

  2. I wish to ask anyone who read this article to close his/her eyes and think what if the scenario was totally the opposite?
    a christian woman with her kid in a playground in a moslem country,
    she wanted a share with a moslem kid, his father who has a beard called her:- "go away with ur cross over ur chest, crusader!"
    then, the police, the court, testimony,, he killed her,,,,,the "moslem" police "accidentally" shooted her husband,,,,
    exactly the same scenario in the opposite way!

    as in the movie "Time to Kill"; 1996
    please watch that movie and try to "FEEL" how the "others" feel!!

    western world are not full of angels and we- moslems- are not the daemons!

  3. The killer was a racist maniac, it doesn't say much for German court security that this could happen, how did he manage to get a knife into the court?
    Speaking as a white man ...the killers a discrace to his race and should rot in prison

  4. Fuck yourself Moslems. Europe is for Christian!!!
