A sixteen-year-old Palestinian girl became pregnant after being raped by her younger brother. Her family encouraged her older brother to kill her to remove the blemish from their honor. The rapist and the murderer were exonerated and the girl blamed and she was killed as she made a ‘crime’
A four-year-old Palestinian girl, raped by a man in his mid-twenties, was left by her family to bleed to death. They did this because they thought she brought dishonor to the family.
In Iraq, a 17-year-old girl, Rand Abdel-Qader, was stabbed to death last month by her father for her involvement with a British soldier serving there.. In Basra alone, it is reported, 15 women are murdered a month for breaching dress codes!
Why are innocent girls gruesomely murdered? Have we lost our humanity to leave such horrors unquestioned?
