Honor, persecution of women
Iraq: Beheading up. Constitution accepts Sharia

Per AlterNet’s Terri Judd, beheading of Muslim females is up in Iraq.
The 19-year-old Shawbo Ali Rauf was slain by her clan because of disgracing their “honor.” They found a number on her cell phone that was unidentified. Genocide is increasing in the name of Allah.
“At first glance she appears to be slumbering on the grass, her pale brown curls framing her face, her summer skirt spread about her. But the awkward position of her limbs and the splattered blood reveal the true horror of the scene.
“The Iraqi was, according to her father, murdered by her own in-laws, who took her to a picnic area in Dokan and shot her seven times.”
Rand Abdel-Qader, l7, was stabbed to death by her father. She was accused of having “become infatuated with a British solder serving in southern Iraq.”
Basra police report 15 women slain for breaking Koran dictates. They broke the Muslim “dress code.” Others say the statistics are much higher.
“Beheadings, rapes, beatings, suicides through self-immolation, genital mutilation, trafficking and child abuse masquerading as marriage of girls as young as nine are all on the increase.”
Nineveh’s 17-year-old Du’a Khalil Aswad was stoned to death in front of 2000 cheering men. She “fell in love with a boy outside her Hazidi tribe.”
No one has been prosecuted. Her father informs media that her family has been ostracized by the entire tribe. They can no longer live in their home. They are “outcasts.”
“’My daughter did nothing wrong,’ her faith said. ‘She fell in love with a Muslim and there is nothing wrong with that. I couldn’t protect her because I got threats from my brother, the whole tribe. They insisted they were gong to kill us all, not only Du’a, if she was not killed. She was mutilated, her body dumped like rubbish.’”
Extremist Muslims in Iraq protest peace organizations exposing the carnage.
“’Honor killings are not actually a crime in the eyes of the government,’ said Houzan Mahmoud, who has had a fatwa on her head since raising a petition against the introduction of Sharia law in Kurdistan. ‘If before there was one dictator persecuting people, now almost everyone is persecuting women.
“’In the past five years it is has got [much] worse. It is difficult to described how terrible it is, how badly we have been pushed back to the dark ages. Women are being beheaded for taking their veil off. Self immolation is rising—women are left with no choice. There is no government body or institution to provide any sort of support. Sharia law is being used to underpin government rule, denying women their most basic human rights.’”
Yet I get emails from Muslim females saying that there is no beheading of Muslims, there is no mistreatment of Islamic females. These are the naïve, uninformed Muslims worldwide who continue the denial.
Faithfreedom.org site continues to post truth about such atrocities. Yet the webmaster informs his readers that their truth-tells are very disturbing to those brainwashed to believe that Islam is the true, peace religion.
Jaffar Nimat, 11, was found in Khanaqin, Kurdistan. She was stoned to death, then burnt. Her brothers and sister were kidnapped from their house by gunmen, then beaten to death.
Begard Huseein, journalist in Arbil, was slain. Her husband stabbed her.
In Sulaymaniyah, a city of 1 million, 407 reports were filed. They detailed beheadings, beatings, deaths through “family problems,” and threats of honor killings. Rape is not filed. Women fear reporting rapes.
The Iraqi Constitution is laden with contradictions. Equality of genders is stated in the document while at the same time Sharia is stated as the acceptable justice and legal system. Sharia regards one male worth two females. This must be observed throughout the country.
Women protesting this discrimination are beheaded. In Mosul two years ago, eight protesters were beheaded “in a terror campaign.”
“’It was really, really horrifying,’ said an official. ‘Honor killings and murder are widespread. Thousands [of people] … have become victims of murder, violence and rape—all backed by laws, tribal customs and religious rules. We urge the international community, the government to condemn this barbaric practice, and help the women of Iraq.’”
So much for the religion of peace.
