We’re not big fans of lefty Yahoo reporter Kevin Sites. He’s openly anti-American and anti-Israel. His coverage of what happened to our men in Fallujah was an outrage. Plus, he dedicates his Yahoo reporting to Code Pinko Marla Ruzicka a/k/a “Treasonatrix Barbie.”
But like every broken clock, he accidentally stumbles onto the right thing, occasionally. Despite trying to defame Israel in a piece, he reported on how terribly the Lebanese treat their Palestinian “guests,” alleged refugees whom they refuse to allow to become Lebanese citizens with full rights.
Today’s “Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone” piece is about Gulsoma, an Afghan girl, now eleven years old, who was forced to marry at age FOUR!!!!!!!
“They beat me with electric wires,” she says, “mostly on the legs. My father-in-law told his other children to do it that way so the injuries would be hidden. He said to them, ‘break her bones, but don’t hit her on the face.’”
There were even times when the family’s abuse of Gulsoma transcended the bounds of the most wanton, sadistic cruelty, as on the occasions when they used her as a human tabletop, forcing her to lie on her stomach then cutting their food on her bare back. . . .
“When he came to the shed he kept asking me, ‘Why don’t you die? I imprisoned you, I give you less food, but still you don’t die.’”
But it wasn’t for lack of trying. Gulsoma said when her father-in-law finally let her out of the shed, he bound her hands behind her back and beat her unconscious. She says he revived her by pouring a tea thermos filling with scalding water over her head and her back.
“It was so painful,” she says, dabbing her eyes with her scarf and sniffling for a moment. “I was crying and screaming the entire time.”
Five days later, she says, her father in law gave her a vicious beating when his daughter’s wristwatch went missing.
“He thought I stole it,” she says, “and he beat me all over my body with his stick. He broke my arm and my foot. He said if I didn’t find it by the next day, he would kill me.”
Gulsoma was also scalded on her head, where she is now partly bald. Read her story and ingest the full details about how she was repeatedly beaten by her husband and new “family.”
Religion of Peace?
