They don't even fit.


The moment a teenage girl was stoned to death for loving the wrong boy

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 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.

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.

Link is not work safe, not mind safe, not safe from chunks of loving basalt, either. Girl being loving killed by being pelted with loving stones.

What the gently caress is wrong with you loving people. gently caress!

I don't even know what to say or what to think.

But I am very, very angry.

That's pretty hosed up.

I really liked how that video has a "MySpace - A place for friends" watermark on it.

That really sucks.

I don't know what else to add to it, really.

That has to be a really lovely way to die.

Edit: Also, who can they arrest in this case? It looks like dozens of people participating and watching it. It's disgusting that her family actually agrees with this.

They didnt even tie her to a pole or anything, just knocked her down and dropped cinder blocks on her. That takes the skill right out of it.

Heh...this is why we might as well leave Iraq. You cannot fix a situation that is dictated by irrational beliefs that aren't based on reality.

I always wondered what it felt like to be so completely ignorant that doing things like this feels like a good idea.

At least marijuana still hasn't killed anybody.

The four most over-rated things in life are champagne, lobster, anal sex and picnics. Oh, and that stupid children's book 'The Little Prince,' ugh.

The Kurds may be our allies, but they loooove their honor killings as much as the Sunis love their adolescent boys.

I love how they do this poo poo in the name of "honour". gently caress them. If God existed, he'd come out of the sky and tell these people to stop pulling this poo poo in his name.

Hey we were chopping off the limbs of our unruly slaves for almost 100 years after the start of our own democracy. Lynchings and worse for longer than that.

I'm surprised it took till the 11th reply to get one like this.

But its a sad, loving miserable world that we live in. Its been a sad miserable world since its start and most likely will be until the end. Just have to try to make your own place in the world as good as you can.

Sometimes the best way to reach your destination is to not tell anyone where you're going. #teamscooterbuddies

Why are we trying to "help" these people again? Yeah I'm generalizing.

Mar 6, 2007


ugh, in some places women are treated as lower than poo poo. This seriously makes me wonder: Why are we negotiating with these people? I'm not saying that they deserve to die or anything, but does the American government honestly think we have the same loving value systems?

We have to be careful so that we don't have a rock-in-hand gap!

Wow, and here I am thinking that the Kurds were generally more civlized and reasonable people.

Guess I was way off on that one.

It's still a terrible way to die. It said her boyfriend is hiding in fear for his life, but I have to wonder if he's even alive still at all.

loving religious fanaticism is going to be the downfall of humanity.

Being stoned to death for love...

Where I work, we work with various military agencies, and the owner of the company is conservative and has proudly done his duty in the military himself. He's got a photo of a bomb with some anti-Saddam message written on it in his office. Even he realizes that we can't fix anything and we should pull out now. Why? Because their society and morals are so totally different from ours that our mindsets will never meet; there is no hope for us "fixing" anything in Iraq. This is just one more example of how very different they live their lives.

As much as I understand it's a totally different culture, I just can't even begin to wrap my head around this.

It's hard to even call that civilization. I thought we got past the whole killing women for no reason thing like 600 years ago.

The video turns my stomach.

Anyone got a link to the video?

What the gently caress? What makes this worse is that it was her own family members that basically passed their daughter's death sentence. If people do stuff like this in the name of religion, what is the point?
