Du’a Khalil Aswad

Thursday, May 17 2007

There has been another honour killing Iraq (pics, plz beware), a 17 year girl – her name was Du’a Khalil Aswad – was stoned to death in the street. Religion and family honour are of course involved as is falling in love with the ‘wrong’ person.

What is different with this killing compared to all the previous one? Well, this time the crowd took out their mobile phones and the pics went on the internet. Apparently, there is even a YouTube clip out there – personally I don’t want to see it.

What is the motive to take these picture … to help the police investigate the crime? To spread the truth of what is going on their country? … or is it for entertainment?

Doesn’t these male relatives have anything better to do then kill one of their own relative?

How can anyone be so invested in family honour to be so incensed & mad to kill a girl? How can family honour be worth it?

What barbaric thoughts do that person have when he lifts a block of concrete and aim it at another persons head?

Is this the liberation that British and American solider’s are dying for?

I am so disgusted by this. This male rule and family honour bullocks are a disgrace to humankind.
