I'm sure most of us have forgotten what took place in Iraq sometime back by the 'honourable' American soliders. May Allah subhanna wa taála punish them in this life and the next and free the oppressed from the oppressors. Ameen.
I covered it at my blog when it happened - it has been brought back to light again by the Media. One of the Solider got 100 years for Rape and Murder of the 13 or 14 year old child but there is a twist. He is eligible for parole in 10 years. I don't doubt that he'll be released sooner.
Excerpt from the article:
Sergeant Cortez said this week that a former private, Steven D. Green, raped the girl in front of him, shot her father, mother and sister, and then shot the girl in the head.
Barker and Green had already known what, um, house they wanted to go to ... knew only one male was in the house, and knew it would be an easy target," Cortez said.Once at the house,
Green, the suspected ringleader, took the girl's mother, father and little sister into a bedroom, Cortez said, while he and Barker took the teenager, Abeer Qassim al-Janabi, to the living room."
She kept squirming and trying to keep her legs closed and saying stuff in Arabic,"
Cortez said."During the time me and Barker were raping Abeer, I heard five or six gunshots that came from the bedroom.After Barker was done, Green came out of the bedroom and said that he had killed them all, that all of them were dead," Cortez said.'

How many more atrocities go on in Iraq and Afghanistan by the 'courageous' and 'brave' American Soliders and their Allies that we dón't hear of? Why is the World silent?
Abeer was a child. A daughter. A Sister. And she was put through the brutality of rape. How many more young Iraqi, Afghani an Palestinian children have to suffer? How many more of our Brothers and Sisters have to be tortured and killed?
The death toll for Iraq could be in hundreds of thousands. I do not know how President Bush, with the blood of hundreds of thousands of people on his hands and the ones currently still suffering could sleep peacefully at night. May Allah subhanna wa taála never give him peace. Ameen.
