Sarah and Amina Said
Normal teen sisters that wanted to have a life and fit in so offended their father that he shot them and left them to die in the back of his taxi parked close enough to the airport so he could flee the country. They died but not prior to calling 911. More details at Fox News. This occurred January 1st, 2008, in Texas.
Where were the demonstrations? Fox and ABC had some coverage while NBC and CBS did not believe it to be newsworthy.
On December 10th, 2007, Aqsa Parvez was strangled by her father in a suburb of Toronto. She was 16 and wanted to move out of the family home. Her friends reported that she often showed up at school with bruises.
I would think that concerned women's groups would contact schools to be vigilant of girls with Muslim surnames--an interview, an exam for bruises by a female councillor if the girl is overly covered, etc.
Perhaps the most vile, most depraved event since September 11, 2001 occurred February 1st, 2008 in Baghdad when two women with Downes Syndrome were strapped with explosive vests and instructed to wander in crowded markets. AQI then detonated their human bombs to cause the deaths of an additional 71 persons.
The aftermath at al-Ghazi marketplace
A U.S. military spokesman conveyed the sense of outrage over the depravity of the masterminds.This is the action of al-Qaeda in Iraq against native people going about their business.
"They have shown their true demonic character," said Lieutenant-Colonel Steve Stover.
The first attack was in the central al-Ghazl market, where numerous birds and animals were on sale.If ever there was a a doubt about using American forces to eradicate AQI, this is as clear as any can be.
The weekly bazaar had been bombed several times but recently had re-emerged as a popular place to shop and stroll as Baghdad security improved and a Friday ban on driving was lifted.
The woman carrying the bomb, hidden under her traditional black Islamic robe, was a familiar figure at the market where she sold cream.
At least 46 people were killed and more than 100 wounded. Fire crews scooped up remains scattered among blood, clothing and pigeon carcasses.
About 20 minutes later, the second bomb blew up a bird market in a predominantly Shiite area in southeastern Baghdad, killing up to 22 people and wounding 65, according to police and hospital officials.
The women used in the attacks were unlikely to have been willing participants, said the chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad, Brigadier-General Qassim al-Moussawi.
These are the third and fourth uses of women as human bombs since October. Many are saying that this is an indication of desperation.
Perhaps... but it also indicates a mindset that can regard anyone with relative weakness (that is any inferior, as are all women in Islam) as tools.
I'm betting that Code Pink will not even mention this. Feminists have been eager for surrender before we ever started.
Their hypocrisy is unlimited.
