A case that came to light last year was when American soldiers gang raped and brutally killed a fourteen year old girl called Abeer Qassim Hamza Al-Janabi. On August 19th she would have turned a year older. But her, like a thousand of other Iraqi girls who have been murdered by Americans Soldiers lie in their graves.
The World was shocked and distressed when the case came out. How could the 'righteous' American Soldiers do this? Muslims and Non-Muslims alike stood up to protest the atrocities commited by the evil forces in Iraq and a few people realised what exactly the 'honourable' American Soldiers in Iraq were doing.
How many cases have been hidden from us? How many of our Sisters in Islam have been raped and massacred the same way?
Abeer had expressed her fear of American Soldiers at the near check point. They would leer at her and showed an interest in her. The killed her Mother, her Father and a Five year old child. They then took turns raping her. After they murdered her, they lit her body on fire. They said she kept trying to cross her legs and said stuff in Arabic. She knew her family had been shot dead in the other room.
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala make her among the martyrs. Ameen.
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.
Cortez added: "Green then placed himself between Abeer's legs to rape her. When Green was finished, he stood up and shot Abeer in the head two or three times."
The entire crime took about five minutes and the girl knew her parents and sister had been shot while she was being raped, the hearing heard.
These are the monsters that have been sent to Iraq. The stories that rarely make it into the main Mass Media. And the stories that are soon forgotten.
It is a sad fact that the Muslim/Arab World stays silent on this and other atrocities commited against our Muslim Brothers' and Sisters'. It is time that the Muslims of today woke up and rose against those who are butchering us. The blood and the life of the Muslim has become cheap. Infact, there is more happening in Non-Muslim Countries. Vigils are being held for Abeer Hamza in the United States and London on August 19th, 2007. [For more information on the vigils, click here and here.]
Let us not forget Abeer and let us remember all the other Iraqis that are butchered and brutally raped in Iraq and all our other Muslims brethren who are suffering in Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia, Kashmir and other parts of the World. Make sure you spread the word, remind your family and friends about Abeer or make a blog post about her.
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala protect our Brothers' and Sisters' in Islam.
That is the recompense of the enemies of Allâh: the Fire. Therein will be for them the eternal home, a (deserving) recompense for that they used to deny Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
