In the Name of Honor, Girl Murdered

I stumbled on this story while looking at related links to a recent posting that I put up from my Stat Counter “Came From” link for Papamoka Straight Talk. In the listings on Google was a link to a post of a young Iraqi girl stoned to death for falling in love with a young Iraqi boy not of her religion. In Iraq this is called an honor killing, in America, we call it murder.

What is truly bothersome is the fact that her own family was complicit in the mob rule stoning of this young girl. Her own uncle turned her over to the mob of thugs and murderers in order to restore his family name. As she was stoned, onlookers recorded the gruesome act on cell phones as the crowd of men audibly is overjoyed in the murder of this poor girl. Du’a Khalil Aswad was not the first young girl to suffer such a fate, and she was not the last. Religion in Iraq has authorized this barbaric and uncivilized stoning, in the name of “honor“. Stoning much like this one has made a strong come back since the fall of Saddam Hussein, something you will not see promoted as a reason our troops need to stay the course by Republican‘s. An estimated 10,000 woman have been murdered in a similar fashion for the sake of “Honor” in the last decade in Iraq according to the article linked to below.

Anything and Everything
Iraqis Stone Girl to Death Over Loving Wrong Boy

My first thoughts when I read this story was that we should just nuke the entire damn country. I was so angry and outraged in thinking that any people that call themselves civilized that could actually do this sort of act are just barbaric monsters without honor. One push of the button and all of their “honor” could be restored. No matter how I look at this story I just can’t believe that their minds work how they do? And they justify her murder by religious means? These people are all nuts! I’m sorry but they don’t deserve freedom if this is what they do with it. Our 4,136 troops killed since the start of this war did not die fighting so that monsters far worse than Saddam Hussein could run wild stoning young girls that fall in love.

This story broke in May of 2007, I don’t know how many other people have covered it, it still isn’t enough. This poor young girl was murdered by her own family, her neighbors, her friends and they think somehow that this was the righteous thing to do? Iraqi’s don’t deserve freedom, they just don’t. Add this to one more reason why America should get the hell out of Iraq. We as a people will never understand the thought process behind this kind of violence or any religiously based authorization to murder your own daughters.

I’m just disgusted by this story. I just can not see the logical reason why this girl had to die? God rest your soul Du’a Khalil Aswad.

Unfortunately such horrors are endemic in Islamic societies. A lot of the best-documented cases actually come from Gaza, the West Bank, and Jordan, but that's mainly because those places are more accessible to Western observers than most Muslim societies are. Many such cases have also been recorded in Turkey and, yes, in Iraq, even in the pro-US Kurdish zone in the north. There's no reason to think it doesn't happen throughout the whole Islamic world.

Women and girls can be murdered by their own families on the mere suspicion of having had premarital or extramarital sex -- or even on suspicion of having been raped. The norms of the Islamic culture and religion support this. If a female has had illicit sex -- even if it was against her will -- the family is shamed and its honor can be restored only by the death of the female.

Honor killings have also come to light among Muslim populations in Britain, Sweden, Germany, and other civilized countries which have foolishly allowed this barbarous culture to establish beachheads in their territory.

It's only a matter of time before the same thing starts happening among Muslim immigrants here, if it hasn't already.

I think it's really even worse and more alien than living in the past. Killing one's own children for violating a cultural taboo is fundamentally abnormal. People in a normal society do not do that.

Premarital sex isn't a good analogy because in our culture that's hardly taboo any more, but even in the case of something that's still a really serious sexual taboo for Westerners.....Imagine, say, an American father who caught his son and daughter having sex with each other. He'd probably be shocked, digusted, outraged, all of that, yes. But kill them for it? I really don't think so. That is not normal behavior.
