It seems the Shia influence in Iraq is pulling the country toward the Iranian model of a totally sharia compliant government.  I feel so sorry for the Iraqi women.

Update on Saudi Cleric Who Tortured and Raped His 5 Year Old Daughter

Saudi Cleric pictured next to daughter he raped and murdered.

A Saudi Islamic preacher accused of torturing his five-year-old daughter to death has been sentenced to just eight years in jail and 600 lashes.

Lama al-Ghamdi died in October 2012 having suffered multiple injuries. Her skull was crushed, a finger nail had been pulled off, her ribs and arm broken and she suffered extensive bruising and burns.

[ . . . ]

Randa al-Kaleeb, a social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl’s back was broken and that she had been repeatedly raped. Her injuries were then burned.

[ . . . ]

The case sent shockwaves around the world earlier this year and there was further outrage when it appeared that her father, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, would be released by a Saudi court after just a few months in prison.

A campaign began to force the court, in the town of Hawta, to stiffen the sentence. The same court and judge july re-examined the case, but there is anger once more that the punishment for Al-Ghamdi, a prominent Islamist preacher who regularly appears on television in Saudi Arabia, is too lenient.

[ . . . ]

Rather than the death penalty or a long prison sentence, the judge in the case ruled the prosecution could only seek ‘blood money’, according to activists. The money is compensation for the next of kin under Islamic law.

Activists said the judge ruled the few months al-Ghamdi spent in prison since his arrest in November 2012 was sufficient punishment.

He has reportedly agreed to pay £31,000 ($50,000), which is believed to have gone to Lama’s mother. The amount is half that would have been paid if Lama had been a boy.

Muslim Teacher Tries to Rape Three Year Old Girl

Muslim Girls Study QuranResidents of Koraywala Colony in Multan caught a prayer leader on Sunday evening for plotting to rape and kill a three-year-old. He was beaten up, stripped and tied to an electricity pole before he was handed over to the Bahauddin Zakariya police. Police said he had confessed to his attempted assault.

The child was taken to a hospital, where she was later reported to be out of danger.

Investigation Officer Sheikh Mukhtar said that the girl and her brother were both students at a seminary in the neighbourhood. He said on Sunday their father had dropped them at the seminary for their daily Quran lessons.

After the lesson, he said, the cleric told her brother to return home saying that the girl had yet to revise her lesson and that he would drop her home in an hour.

When her brother left, the investigation officer said, the cleric drugged the girl and took her to a nearby graveyard, where he dug a hole for her.

Sharia Travesty of Blood Money Punishment for Sexual Abuse and Murder of Child

girl-murdered-by-Saudi-fatherThe writer is sadly mistaken if he thinks that this case will change sharia law! 

Only time will tell, but a 5-year-old Saudi girl may eventually prove to have wielded more influence over her people during her short, tragic life than did the country’s conservative religious leaders touting twisted “virtues” of Islam satisfying their own perversions.

In Saudi Arabia last year, 5-year-old Lama al-Ghamdil was killed by her father — Islamic religious leader and popular TV personality Imam Fayhan al-Ghamdi — after he became incensed she had lost her virginity. Even more shocking, however, is the person to whom her virginity was lost and the initial punishment he was given.

Most societies seek to protect the one asset perpetuating their future existence: children. Where child protection laws have been passed but ignored society expects responsible citizens to report an adult’s abusive treatment and that the justice system will then ensure children are protected from an abuser.

Ghamdi confessed to torturing and killing his daughter. The girl’s body showed evidence of a fractured skull, brain damage, repeated rapes, burns, beatings with whips and an iron, electrical shocks, a broken back, ribs and arm. Reportedly, he also had sadistically sought to burn Lama’s rectum closed.

For 10 months, Lama lingered in the hospital before succumbing in October 2012 to her massive injuries. One cannot imagine the thoughts going through this defenseless child’s mind as she tried to understand the pain and suffering she was forced to endure at the hands of her own father. Ghamdi was arrested and jailed in November.

The abuse inflicted upon Lama was justified by the father as she no longer was a virgin. That would have been sad enough but evidence suggests the father was the rapist.

Obviously, any parent should be outraged by such sadistic brutality. While too late to help Lama, one would hope Saudi’s justice system would put the father away so his two other children avoided similar abuse.

But a Saudi judge ruled Ghamdi need only pay his ex-wife $50,000 in “blood money” for having abused and killed their daughter (had the child been male the fine would be double), stating the few months he had already spent in prison was sufficient punishment!

The ruling was based on Islamic or “Sharia” law prohibiting a father from being executed for killing his child (or wife) if compensation is paid.

http://bulletinoftheoppressionofwomen.com/2013/09/15/8-year-old-yemen-bride-died-after-wedding-night/

Child Bride and HusbandAl Nahar, Lebanon, has reported that an eight year old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband who was five times her age.

The death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. This brings even more attention to the already existing issue of forced child marriages in the Middle Eastern region.

“According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides. Furthermore, of the 140 million girls who will marry before the age of 18, 50 million will be under the age of 15.”

It is reported that over a quarter of Yemen’s young girls are married before the age of 15. Not only do they lose access to health and education, these child brides are commonly subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence in their forced marriage.

One of the main issues is that there is currently no consistent established definition of a “child” that has been agreed upon worldwide.  This leaves various interpretations within countries and little protection for those who are affected. 

[ . . . ]

In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic.

Child Bride Torturers in Afghanistan Released

Tortured child bride in AfghanistanA court in Kabul ordered the early release of three people convicted over the torture of a child bride, an official confirmed Saturday, in a move denounced by activists as a blow for women’s rights.

Sahar Gul, who was 15 at the time her ordeal, was burned, beaten and had her fingernails pulled out by her husband and in-laws after she refused to become a prostitute in a case that shocked the world.

She was found in the basement of her husband’s house in northeastern Baghlan province in late 2011, having been locked in a toilet for six months prior to her rescue by police.

Her father-in-law, mother-in-law and sister-in-law were sentenced to prison for 10 years each for torture and attempted murder, though her husband remains at large.

UW Muslim Student Accused of Raping 12 Year Old

Silhouette of despondent young girl

A University of Washington student accused of having sex with a 12-year-old girl he picked up in the University District has been charged with child rape.


Currently free after posting bond, UW Senior Omar Abdelbadie is alleged to have plied the girl with marijuana, brought her back to his apartment and had sex with her hours after they met. Abdelbadie, a 22-year-old originally from Bellevue, was described by prosecutors as a threat to community safety, despite his lack of a criminal history.  

“The defendant is a danger to children given the circumstances of this crime where he met a 12 year old girl on the street, exposed her to marijuana, and took her to his home, where they had sexual intercourse,” Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carol Spoor said in court papers.

Having left home that evening, the girl ended up in the U District just after midnight on June 10, according to charging papers. She told police she was about to head home – she described the crowd there as “creepy” – when she encountered Abdelbadie.

According to the girl’s account, Abdelbadie approached and struck up a conversation with her, and then asked her to smoke marijuana with him. The girl said she told him her age several times before he brought her back to his apartment, where he had sex with her after claiming she had “seduced” him.
