16-year-old girl lynched in Gaza....

And, where are the feminist groups to protest???
After more than 20 years in the business, and just when you think you've seen it all, there's always something that shocks you more than ever.

This time it's the brutal murder of a 16-year-old girl in the Gaza Strip. Her crime: "dishonoring" her family. Of course, there is no way to verify the allegations against her and other females who have fallen victim to "honor killings."

The gruesome murder occurred a few weeks ago, when the girl - who looks much younger than her age - was dragged into the street and handed to an mob of angry young men.

Eyewitnesses told The Jerusalem Post that many of those who participated in the lynch were Hamas members and relatives of the girl.

A five-minute video obtained by the Post over the weekend reveals the savagery and mercilessness of the killers.

What's really disturbing is that none of those at the crime scene tried to intervene to save the girl's life.

More than 20 young men are seen beating, stabbing and kicking the little girl before smashing her head with large stones.

It's not easy to watch such a video. The scenes of the girl lying on the ground as frenzied men trample her are unimaginable.

At one point, the girl tries to cover her head with her hands to avoid the kicking. She then tries to rise to her feet, only to be stabbed repeatedly by one of the men.

As she collapses, one of the attackers pulls down her skirt so that the rest of his friends will not see her underwear. The girl is required to maintain her "modesty" even as she is being preyed upon.

And just when you think the lynch is about to end, someone emerges from the crowd carrying a large white stone.

He throws the stone at the girl's back as she lays face down, motionless.

Seconds later, another man throws a large stone at the back of her head. The video ends with the girl laying in a pool of blood.

Mission accomplished. Hours later, a few local reporters sent a terse statement to their news organizations informing them of another "honor killing" in the Gaza Strip. Not a word about the way the girl had been lynched. The story barely made it to the mainstream media.

Sadly the lefties and liberals will ignore this brutal act. This to them will not be seen as a crime but rather a cultural expression. Feminist know that protesting against such acts accomplish little because they would be ignored and since there is no profit here for them, they continue to ignore it. The hyprocesy of the left never fails to astound me.
In time these feminists may have an opportunity to learn first hand what being a women is in an islamic culture.

Truly horrific.

Perhaps if Layton just talked to these people ...

CAIR Canada stated recently that such killings only happen among people with distorted cultural views - while they're honesty is refreshing in that they state Muslims have distorted views, they could do a bit more to educate and enlighten backwards Muslims.

Amazing how within hours of Saddam Hussein's demise the video was on the web.

This video exists, but it's not on the web. While I'm sure it's absolutely horrifying, it would show some truth that many ignore about women's situation in the muslim world.

I think this may be incorrect. According to amnesty and cnn this girl was killed in Iraq, not by muslims, but by pre-abrahamite arab sect

As the previous comment stated, this article is a lie and hasn’t anything to do with Gaza, Hamas, Palestinians or Muslims!
Nothing more than racist propaganda of the worst type.

The horrible crime captured on video relates in fact to a killing of a teenage girl murdered by a mob that contained members of her own family in northern Iraq. They were not Muslims, but an ancient pre-Islamic sect. The victim's 'crime' was to fall in love with a Muslim boy and convert to Islam.

An apology by the author of this blog should be given to Gaza, Hamas, Palestinians and Muslims for spreading malicious lies and blaming them for something that had nothing to do with them.
