A 17-year-old girl has been stoned to death in Iraq because she loved a teenage boy of the wrong religion.Let's hear it for revealed truth ... down with reason and logic!
As a horrifying video of the stoning went out on the Internet, the British arm of Amnesty International condemned the death of Du’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.
I wonder what makes us think our brand of fundamentalism is any better than their brand of fundamentalism.
Is this what we're fighting for in Iraq?
