Religion of Peace?: Girl Forced to Marry at Age FOUR! Badly Tortured

We’re 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
But like every broken clock, he accidentally stumbles onto the right thing, occasionally. Despite trying to defame Israel in a piece, he reported on 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?

Yes, this is horrifying. Absolutely so. But by continually digging up examples of Muslims behaving in a barbaric manner and then asking sardonically “religion of peace?” you appear ridiculous. Why? Because for each and every example you give, I can give you an example of a Christian who behaved in the same way. Human cruelty is not limited to Muslims; not by a long shot.

As a gentleman I can say that this story was particularly hard for me to read. The suffering of a child is more than I can bear. I can also say that if the peasants who did this to that little girl were to fall into my hands… they would seek death but not find it.

You also neglect to mention that when she ran away, she was saved, nurtured, and protected by Muslim agencies. And that her Muslim neighbors confirmed her story to police so that the father-in-law could be arrested.

If people think they can find one example of this kind of cruel treatment other religions for every example found in Islam, they are dangerously out of touch with reality. The issue being ignored by that disingenuous perspective is that, while certainly lots of harm has been done in the name of many religions, you will never find it more acceptable to commit such horrific acts against women, children and non-believers as you will find among most Muslims, especially in countries that enforce Islamic law.
It is NOT against the law in places like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Qatar and elsewhere to: rape your wife, murder homosexuals and non-believers or so-called infidels, abuse children. And in fact, women go on trial regularly for BEING raped. You can’t tell me that among Christians, or any other religious sect–or, in nations with a Christian or other religious majority–those things would be either legal OR acceptable.
When crazy nutjobs try to use Christ as an excuse for committing murder, they are immediately rejected by the majority of Christians as not true believers, and the same thing can be said for basically every other religion out there. The law doesn’t either look the other way, or worse yet, encourage it, in countries in the Western Civilization. You don’t have the leadership of various Christian sects and other religions ENDORSING these practices the way you will find Muslim Clerics doing it.
And the biggest reason of all to constantly point out each and every story that talks about abuse carried out in the name of Allah is to point out exactly WHY Muslim extremists must be stopped. They want to rule the world and impose Global Islamic Law, and they are willing to Kill for the power to enforce it. The only way they will not succeed is if we fight them. Otherwise, these stories will not just be about women and children living in the Middle East.
