From FOX News:
Female human rights activist killed by ISIS
September 25, 2014
BAGHDAD – Militants with the Islamic State group tortured and then publicly killed a human rights lawyer in the Iraqi city of Mosul after their self-proclaimed religious court ruled that she had abandoned Islam, the U.N. mission in Iraq said Thursday.
Gunmen with the group's newly declared police force seized Samira Salih al-Nuaimi last week in a northeastern district of the Mosul while she was home with her husband and three children, two people with direct knowledge of the incident told The Associated Press on Thursday. Al-Nuaimi was taken to a secret location. After about five days, the family was called by the morgue to retrieve her corpse, which bore signs of torture, the two people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of fears for their safety...
A statement by the U.N. on Thursday added that al-Nuaimi was tried in a so-called "Sharia court" for apostasy, after which she was tortured for five days before the militants sentenced her to "public execution."
Al-Nuaimi's death is the latest in a string of attacks by the militant group to silence female activists and politicians. In July in the nearby town of Sderat, militants broke into the house of a female candidate in the last provincial council elections, killed her and abducted her husband, the U.N. said.
On the same day, another female politician was abducted from her home in eastern Mosul; she remains missing.
Hanaa Edwer, a prominent Iraqi human rights activist, said at least five female political activists have been killed in recent weeks by the Islamic State group in Mosul, including al-Nuaimi, who Edwer said was also running for a seat on the provincial council....
MUCH more here.
My question: WHERE is the outrage? Where are the msm raging headlines? Where is Michelle Obama with her hashtag condemnation? Most of all, WHERE are the public protests by Code Pink, National Organisation of (some) Women?
Only one other news outlet - yes, out of the UK - has even acknowledged this very real, deadly, war on women.
Michelle Obama and her husband? Not a word from either of them, or David Cameron for that matter.
I wish I could say I am surprised at the worldwide silence as women and children continue to be tortured, murdered by the cowardly thugs of ISIS, but I am not.
I am so not surprised, since over the years I have watched with growing disgust as the pampered women of the west choose to remain silent about the ongoing atrocities against women living in muslim countries.
Not surprised at all, but beyond disgusted, as I read - almost on a weekly basis - of yet another woman whose only crime is wanting to live in freedom, (exercising the rights that western women take for granted) as they raise their children, their girls, in peace, with no fear from the terrorists in their midst.
I do not have the answers on how to solve this outrage, BUT I do know that as long as the west remains silent, the deadly war on women around the world will continue.
I long for a day when free, western women around the world take to the streets and denounce what is happening every.single.day to innocent women like Samira Salih al-Nuaimi. The list gets longer by the day of women and girls who are slaughtered by islamist murderers.
"Feminists"?????? I have another *f* word for them, and until, and unless, all so-called support groups for women speak out LOUDLY for their global sisters, they show themselves for what they, and their political 'leaders,' truly are: hypocrites.
Iraqi girl - picture courtesy of Major Chris Galloway a few years back.. This picture, and many others like it, continue to haunt me. I often wonder if this girl is still alive. I also think very often about all the little girls and women that our deployed Troops shared with me, as our guys fought to ensure a real future for these girls...
When will the *feminists* and the politicians rise up from their safe, pampered lives and demand a stop to the war on these girls and women? Only then can women such as Samira truly rest in peace.
'First they came for the muslim women and girls..and I said nothing...'
