Syrian Christian Girl Gang-Raped For Weeks



We send money and arms to these people and demand that Assad be deposed-

ASIA/SYRIA - Rape and atrocities on a young Christian in Qusair"

"Qusair (Agenzia Fides) - Mariam was a 15-year-old Christian from Qusair, a city of the governorate in Homs, 35 km south of the capital. The city, which had become a stronghold of the Syrian rebels, was reconquered by the troops of the regular army at the beginning of June. Mariam’s story - sent to Fides thanks to the report of two Catholic priests - is a sign of the brutality of the conflict and the extreme vulnerability of religious minorities. Mariam's family was in town when militants linked to the jihadist group "Jabhat al-Nusra" conquered and occupied it. 

While her family was able to escape, Mariam was taken and forced into an Islamic marriage.
Fides sources point out that, through social networks, the fatwa was widespread in Syria produced by Yasir al-Ajlawni - A Salafi sheikh of Jordanian origin, resident in Damascus - who declared lawful, for opponents of the regime of Bashar al-Assad, rape committed against "any non-Sunni Syrian woman." According to the fatwa to capture and rape Alawi or Christian women is not contrary to the precepts of Islam.

The commander of the battalion "Jabhat al-Nusra" in Qusair took Mariam, married and raped her. Then he repudiated her. The next day the young woman was forced to marry another Islamic militant. He also raped her and then repudiated her. The same trend was repeated for 15 days, and Mariam was raped by 15 different men. This psychologically destabilized her and made her insane. Mariam, became mentally unstable and was eventually killed.
"These atrocities are not told by any International Commission" say to Fides two Greek-Catholic priests, Fr. Issam and Fr. Elias who have just returned to town. The two are collecting the cry's and complaints of many families. "Who will do something to protect civilians, the most vulnerable?" they ask. As reported to Fides, the two have just celebrated a Mass to consecrate again the Catholic church of St. Elias in Qusair.
The church was ransacked and desecrated by the guerrillas, and had become a logistic and residential base for rebel groups. (PA) (Agenzia Fides 02/07/2013)"

I am torn between boiling over in rage and despairing that too few will speak out to put a stop to what is happening to Christians in the Near and Middle East. Christian and Alawite (Druze and Shiite) girls live in in a state of effective imprisonment in their own country. The latter (Now apparently also including Christians) specifically have been subjected to a fatwa, one which I noted in a previous post*, that makes non-Muslim women and girls fair game for the rapist thugs that are the recipients of US military aid.

I am having a hard time findings words - we live our lives in a state of mind-boggling apathy. A slaughter of innocent children in Connecticut rightly causes anguish. In response, we ignore the immense logistical obstacles involved with outlawing and confiscating the millions of magazine fed firearms and call for the civil arm to make laws that would ensure that "this will never happen again". We have convinced ourselves that we enjoy some type of birthright to be completely free of horrifically violent acts.

In Syria, 23 dead or raped non-Sunni Muslim innocents is business as usual, yet we sit on our hands and do nothing; not a call to our congressmen, not a rally in protest, not even an electronic petition has made it to my email - all this while the money that we contribute to the government coffers gets used to help the animals, who murder, rape, and kidnap Christians and other non-Sunnis. I don't even hear or read any reports that UNESCO is decrying the destruction of Christian churches in Syria. 

Part of my salary goes to supporting those who gang-rape innocents in Syria. 

I am sick to my stomach. If anyone knows how to start a good online petition, I will give my all to distribute it far and wide. Our government needs to be told that the US must stop giving any aid whatsoever to the Syrian rebels. We need to be done with trying to find "nice" rebels - the pigs always gain ascendancy in these vacuums of power and push out the "moderates". We also need to stop pretending to believe that Assad has to go - non-Sunnis were immeasurably safer and better-off before when his regime was in control of the entire country. The whole idea of toppling these autocrats was a bold-faced lie from the start.
