thats what some want....
Why is this news?
Shouldn't it be news if they do NOT say that?
I thought thats what the democrats and some traitorous republicans said.
Now I am really confused, you don't know who to beleive anymore.
Why are we in the middle-east trying to defend ourselves from radical Islamists again?? Ohhh I remember, because they wanna kill each and everyone one of us, including themselves most of the time....
Atleast they gave up on the "It's about land not religion" It was never about land. If land was the issue, why doesn't the PLO have issues with Syria and Jordan? That's where 95% of the mythical "palastinian mandate" land is. As far as Israel being defeated, if my memory serves me right, the only reason Israel pulled out of Lebanon last year was due to pressure from the UN. They should have leveled large parts of Lebanon while they had a chance. The idea of land for peace is a bunch of bull, has never worked and will never work.
They seem to enjoy killing each other as well. There are two still captures on the webpage if the absolute horror of the text here isn't enough.
The moment a teenage girl was stoned to death for loving the wrong boy
Last updated at 18:28pm on 3rd May 2007
A 17-year-old girl has been stoned to death in Iraq because she loved a teenage boy of the wrong religion.
As a horrifying video of the stoning went out on the Internet, the British arm of Amnesty International condemned the death of Duâ€™a Khalil Aswad as "an abhorrent murder" and demanded that her killers be brought to justice.
Reports from Iraq said a local security force witnessed the incident, but did nothing to try to stop it. Now her boyfriend is in hiding in fear for his life.
Miss Aswad, a member of a minority Kurdish religious group called Yezidi, was condemned to death as an "honour killing" by other men in her family and hardline religious leaders because of her relationship with the Sunni Muslim boy.
They said she had shamed herself and her family when she failed to return home one night. Some reports suggested she had converted to Islam to be closer to her boyfriend.
Miss Aswad had taken shelter in the house of a Yezidi tribal leader in Bashika, a predominantly Kurdish town near the northern capital, Mosul.
A large crowd watched as eight or nine men stormed the house and dragged Miss Aswad into the street. There they hurled stones at her for half an hour until she was dead.
The stoning happened last month, but only came to light yesterday with the release of the Internet video.
It is feared her death has already triggered a retaliatory attack. Last week 23 Yezidi workmen were forced off a bus travelling from Mosulto Bashika by a group of Sunni gunmen and summarily shot dead.
An Amnesty International spokesman in London said they receive frequent reports of honour crimes from Iraq â€“ particularly in the predominantly Kurdish north.
Most victims are women and girls who are considered by male relatives to have shamed their families by immoral behaviour.
Kurdish authorities have introduced reforms outlawing honour killings, but have failed to investigate them or prosecute suspects, added the Amnesty spokesman.
Kate Allen, the organisationâ€™s UK director, said: "This young girlâ€™s murder is truly abhorrent and her killers must be brought to justice.
"Unless the authorities respond vigorously to this and any other reports of crimes in the name of 'honour', we must fear for the future of women in Iraq."
