Honor Violence Libya



Like the TT has stated many times, the forces fighting Gaddafi are just as brutal and thuggish. The man murdered his own daughters due to his own sense of ‘honor’. Utterly despicable and grotesque and very Islamic. KGS

A Libyan father killed his three daughters after they were raped by Gaddafi’s troops to lift the shame on his family, a human rights group said today.

The girls, aged 15, 17 and 18 were allegedly assaulted by soldiers at a school in the town of Tomina, near the war-shattered city of Misrata, during a two-month siege.

When they returned home, their father slit their throats in a so-called honour killing, according to Physicians for Human Rights (PHR).

  1. So if the ‘religious police’ in Saudi Arabia rape your daughter for dressing immodestly then you are supposed to kill her?

  2. Warlorderism at it’s finest, a 7th century based set of rules set forth by a group of opportunistic rapists who created laws to cover their fiendish hides, then we have a pathetic excuse for a man following those very same set of rules and murders his daughters’ accordingly. Total hellish insanity all the way around all due a animal warlord who now rots in hell.

    Pray for the souls of his daughters’ for they are the true victims here . . .

  3. Too bad poor papa didnt marry them off first, then the rape and killing would be sanctioned by their devil god. the epitome of ignorance and a false religion. Time to serve the pork!!

    1. I just don’t get it, man. I hate all religions. Oh, no, I’m not an atheist, I believe in a creator. religions just turn me off.

  4. If it’s honor killing then it must have been a Muslim who carried out the act.

    Rape is horrible, but honor killing is even worse! It is only in the barbaric religion of Islam where victims are punished even though they are innocent. Instead of helping the victim and comforting them, they are killed because they have brought dishonor to the family? That is just ludicrous!

    In the enlightened non-Muslim world victims are protected. Why are Muslims so backward? That’s the trillion dollar question.

  5. What warped sense of justice causes a father to murder his own daughters in their hour of greatest need for family love and affection?

  6. Other than Islam, what else could explain this kind of behavior?

    To say it is grotesque behavior is to put it mildly; an understatement.

    I don’t think the words available in the English language are sufficiently adequate to describe such behavior.

  7. @Raymond,

    You mean Christianity? Judaism? God demands all sorts of terrible things of the victims of rape- take a look in the Old Testament for a cornucopia of morally abhorrent ideas.

    Islam isn’t the problem: religion and enforcing bronze-age customs and superstitions are the problem.

    1. derper..
      I’m kind of fuzzy on the whole “old testament” thing..care to enlighten me? because I don’t recall any “slitting their throats”commands..unless you consider amimal sacrifices for the remission of sins….

    2. You are comparing Jewish law on rape with Islamic law? Islamic law requires 4 witnesses to prove that it is rape or the woman is punished for adultery. Jewish law requires 2 witnesses to prove that the woman did anything wrong. Jewish law says that the woman is innocent of any wrongdoing if she was in a secluded place where no one could hear her if she cried out for help. The thing in the Bible concerning rape which is most misunderstood is the law which says that a rapist should marry his victim. This was actually a punishment for the rapist and assured that he was held responsible for his actions. The victim was not forced to marry her attacker. Under Jewish law, no woman can be forced into marriage. What it means is that the attacker has to offer to marry her and if she declines (which she more than likely will) he still has to pay the marriage fee to her family. The marriage fee was a huge sum paid to a bride’s family in Biblical times. (Nowadays the fee is not paid upfront, but is given to the wife if she is divorced or after the husband dies) Often a man would have to save for a long time in order to afford it. It was a severe penalty and potentially could mean that the man could never marry (since it would be very hard to raise such a large amount again.)

  8. Nothing about Muslims surprises me anymore…
    It just sickens me further.

    I have to say, I am rather sick of alot of people’s…Refusal…to believe Islam is evil.

    1. Islam not particularly evil, humans are the most despicable species on this earth. It took humans to create islam and all the other horrors that we see today and in history.

  9. With modern communications tools such as the Internet and the ease with which the true nature of Islam can be explored means it is becoming more difficult to hide behind the ignorance of the general public.

    There is no longer any place to hide for those who insist on sugar coating Islam.

  10. It’s time that the human race said “Talaq” to Islam, no property, no rights to appeal. “The Path to the Watering Hole” is a deadly mirage.

  11. “Derper,
    I think Islam is the problem.
    Have a look at this website. It explains reasons for this opinion better than I can

    Islam is at a different point in history than Christianity is. Six hundred years ago, to disobey the law of the religion and denounce anything that was said was considered worse than felonies are by today’s courts. You could be tortured for suggesting that the world was round during a certain time in history.

    Never mind laws regarding rape, dishonoring your preacher, whatever. The problem is that dogma gives human beings a justification for ANY number of atrocities. Clearly, the fear of Hell does not stop people who commit terrible crimes, all while claiming to be religious after they are put in prisons. The issue is that religion can always be used as a scape goat. Christianity has evolved past this horrible attitude, but it is an insult to the memories of those who were murdered in its name to pretend that this time in history did not exist.

    1. Justin, no one is saying that atrocities committed in the name of Christianity should be downplayed, covered up etc., far from it. It’s a testimony to the west that they are addressed in earnest. That said, the Islamic world lives according to a different set of rules, honor and shame mentalities keep the Islamic world from ever admitting their mistakes, let alone to address them by sincere apologies. The slave trade is one classic example.

      The advent of the Enlightenment and the resulting liberties and freedoms that flowed from that, are also not lost on the Islamic world. They have seen where ‘enlightenment’ leads society, and will fight a similar one from developing within Islam tooth and nail, both hardliners and the ‘moderates’. I do not agree that Islam is “is at a different point of history than Christianity. The reformation in Christianity was actually the reforming of the Catholic Church, not Christianity itself. Islam however, to be reformed, would need huge portions of its texts …wiped clean, in order for it to be reformed, and I just don’t see that happening.

  12. As a muslim to hear this news makes me so sad & hurt. Islam is nothing to do
    with this man’s action. The sole person to blame is the (Father) himself. Human
    beings make decisions . His decision was so evil & irresponsible . As a father, he should protect & nurture them for their coming life to make better & bright future.
    Poor girls , GOD has mercy on their souls ( ALLAH YERHAMHUM) .

    1. Unfortunately, it’s in fact Islam that contributes to this mentality, the shame and honor culture is inherent in that ideology. You don’t hear of Christians or Jews who have/or still live in Muslim countries committing the same kind of crimes. It stems from a different set of values that Islam creates.

  13. Do you really believe the UK propaganda? How do they know it was Gaddafi’s people?
    Before the war, Libya was the country with the highest standard of life in Africa ( from the poorest country in the world in 1951) and all of a sudden “Gaddafi’s people” start raping girls. Why not the so called “rebels” were the ones that did the raping? All they did( the western media) was to demonize the Libyan people( Gaddafi’s people) and to glorify some 20 thousand hired NATO invaders.
