Advice to non-muslim women living in non-Muslim countries: never marry a Muslim, never marry a Muslim, never never never marry a Muslim.
That first line of the report should have read - 'A Turkish-born Kurdish Muslim man...'.
Does he have UK citizenship? If he does, perhaps he gained it by marrying Michala, who appears to be herself the daughter of a marriage between a UK non-Muslim woman and a Turkish Muslim man, Mehmet Sahin.
If I were the police I would be investigating Mr Mehmet Sahin very closely, on suspicion of having put Mr Ensar Gol up to it. Because this murder rids both Mehmet and Ensar of their inconvenient and uppity non-Muslim wives. Did Mr Mehmet Sahin, too, gain UK citizenship by his marriage to Julie?
IF Mr Gol gained his UK citizenship by marrying Michala, then it should be stripped from him. Indeed, rather than giving him an opportunity for a lifetime of 'prison da'wa', all paid for by the UK taxpayer, the best option - given that he cannot be executed, the death sentence having been abolished in the UK - would be to strip him of everything he possesses and send him right back to the living death that is dar al Islam: to Muslim Turkey, sans his UK citizenship, and with a permanent ban on his ever being permitted back into any of the Lands of the Infidels.
A further observation. In her relatively soft-edged 1994 book 'Nine Parts of Desire', which discusses the lot of women under Islam, Australian journalist Geraldine Brooks refers, in a final chapter which discusses the trial of Sudanese Muslim man who had carried out an 'honor' murder of his Sudanese wife Afak in Britain in the early 1990s (Ms Brooks recognises and explains the peculiar Islamic dominance/ 'honor' related character of the murder, which differentiates it from the simple crime passionelle seen among non-Muslim couples), to "a British study of family violence, completed not long before Afak's death; the researchers found that women married to men of Muslim background were eight times more likely to be killed by their spouses than any other women in Britain".
