The insanity of Saudi Islam

February 5, 2013

Aw – what a cute little girl!  Isn’t she just as cute as the dickens in her little pink hat, with her button nose and that adorable little gap between her teeth and those big, brown eyes and infectious kid smile?  Doesn’t she look happy?  Don’t you just want to give her a hug?

Don’t you just want to pick her up in your arms, break her arm, torture her with fire, beat her with cables,  break her ribs, rape her, break her back, and crush her skull?

I mean – who wouldn’t?

This is Lama.  She was five when her father did all of that to her – killing her in the process.    The reason stated, when he was brought to court, was that he doubted her virginity.

I mentioned that Lama was five, right?

ImageThis is sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi.  He is a holy man.  He has been a guest speaker on many Islamic television broadcasts in Saudi Arabia, where he has discussed such topics as the religious virtue involved in taking in and supporting orphans.  After he divorced his wife, he received custody of his daughter Lama.  One day he noticed that his pretty little daughter was behaving “strangely” and he began to question her virginity.  He took her to a medical professional who determined that her virginity was, in fact, intact.  This, however, did not quiet his concerns on the matter, and he determined that the only way to make a final decision on the matter was to rip out one of Lama’s fingernails, tear open her rectum and then burn it closed, rape her (“everywhere” according to one social worker), break her bones, and crush her skull before belatedly taking her to a hospital where she died.

Believe it or not, this article isn’t about him.

No, this article is about the court that tried him.  The court that determined that the fitting punishment for this crime was four months in prison and a $50,000.00 fine paid to the mother.

What is wrong with you people?

Do you not even read the holy book that you claim to revere?  Isn’t there something – anything – inside your hearts and souls that tells you “hey wait a minute – this sort of sentence for such a heinous crime just doesn’t make sense!  Maybe we should actually punish people who rape and murder their daughters as a deterrent to people engaging in such behaviors in the future?”  How can you reasonably call what you dispense justice when you hand down sentences like this one.

What kind of twisted version of religious belief do you follow that can turn your natural instincts to protect children, instincts shared by virtually every other mammal species, so far from their natural and healthy state?  What sort of sickly and barren souls live within you that you can even consider letting someone like sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi walk the streets of your land, free to marry, to have more daughters, and to murder them as he murdered Lama?  Is it really so desirable to discriminate against women that you are willing to allow sadistic, murdering, torturers of children to go free with minimal punishment?

O court, o judges who allowed the sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi to walk away from the terrible torture and murder of his beautiful daughter after a few months in prison and a hit to his checkbook, thou art cursed.  May the she-bears seek thee, find thee, and rend thee to bits.  They can go after sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi after they are done with thee.

Today’s Two She Bears is brought to you by Surat Al-Sura 17:31  “And do not kill your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Indeed, their killing is ever a great sin.”

    P.S. Saudi Islam fathers – if you are worried that your child is not a virgin, raping her is not the best way to find out.

  2. This is tragic.
