A Kurdish teenager was stoned to death By her family in city of MOSUL

Kurdishaspect.com - By: Kameel Ahmady
Mina Rojdar- Mosul Iraq/Kurdistan

According to a Kurdish website Jebar.info  up to 1000 men from Yezidi Kurdish community of MOSUL city killed a deserted (run away) teenager who’s only crime was running away and marry a Muslim man who she loved and later converted to his religious.

Since four months ago the girl had been given shelter by local Muslim Sheik. It was reported that in the last few days her family persuaded her to return back home convincing her that she had been forgiven by her parents and relatives for her mistake.

In a short mobile video clip which appears to have been taken by locals at seen of the murder, the girl is seen being ambushed on her way home by a group of up to 1000 men who were waiting for her to return and killed her in the most brutal way possible, by throwing large stones on her head. The following clips show that while she is alive and crying for help she is taunted and kicked in her stomach until someone finishes her off by throwing a large stone on her face.

From the clips it appears that the girl was first stripped naked to symbolise that she had dishonoured her family and her Yezidi religion. She is lying on the road naked while her smashed face is covered with blood and still breathing.

According to the website and footage from the clip a number of armed local police officers were present who in fact helped the crowd to kill the woman rather than preventing the crime. Sometime later the Iraqi army arrived at the scene and refused anyone entry including the press.

Killing women for reasons of honour, shame and religion dose happens in regions of Kurdistan and Iraq. The above incidents are not uncommon in some of the deeply religious and traditional communities. For long violence against women is commonly used as a political and religious weapon and as a means of social control.

This isn't a game who knows best about the  coran or bible. It's pretty obvious that this senseless act had nothing to  do with religion and is merely an excuse. It was a spectacle,  purposefully instigated by either parents or surroundings. Desperate measures?  Maybe they couldn't support her financially? Maybe she stole a sandwich? Any other excuse other than having a relationship with someone from  another community. Wait, ofcourse, it was just a spectacle, just like the  killings that resulted after this. This is common tradition in that  area as we obviously all can see. Pure stupidity. It just makes me sick  knowing that this happened, while it shouldn't have happened. Those  pathetic loud mouthed bystanders aren't worth commenting on. Even  authorities are questionable. Instead of sending military, maybe we should  collectively send these people money to buy the newest cellphones. I feel  sad to have watched this.

"Parker" thanks for your comment. It's make  feeling good to find some one who is really informed about what he has  writing :).
If the muslims have really undertood and praticied their religion, the  women in those contries will have more rights than they have today. We  shall not forget that in the most islamic countries the most of people  are unalphabet. They can not write nor read. How do you want that this  people really understand their own religion! If you learn about islam  from its book (Coran) not from the bad things commited by the muslims,  you will understand that the islam is innocent from what you have seen  in this video.

"parker" So, based on your comments, we can  assume you oppose your country's  dealing "out death and judgement" in  Iraq 100,000 times more than you opposed this singular death?
Since most USA is christian, I find it hard to digest you saying that  killing is exclusively a muslim trait.
Let me be more forthcoming. Your posting this pedantic biblical  bull... says it all. You and your religious ilk are morally bankrupt. As  usual, you insinuate yourself and your mantras into every situation of  grief. Always talking at your victims. Here you are blatantly mongering  your fish in the wake of this tragedy. You are a shameless carbunkle on  the face of humanity.

Well as far as pork goes’ that this was  required by God of His people in the Old Testament. He set up many laws to  keep His people pure. As pigs were seen as animals that ate garbage etc.  God called them unclean. Pigs/pork was not an acceptable sacrifice for  the atonement for sins. However, in the New Testament, this law was  "lifted." Because of Jesus' death on the cross (and resurrection),
sacrifices were no longer needed as Jesus was the final sacrifice and faith  in Him was the only way man could be pure before God. It was no longer  necessary for God's people to leave by these strict rules. God declares  this once unclean food clean in the following passage in a dream to  Peter. Acts 11:4-10"4 Peter began and explained everything to them  precisely as it had happened: "I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a  trance I saw a vision. I saw something like a large sheet being let down  from heaven by its four corners, and it came down to where I was. I
looked in to it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles,  and birds of the air. Then I heard a voice telling me, 'Get up, Peter.  Kill and eat.' "I replied, surely not, Lord! Nothing impure or unclean  has ever entered my mouth.' "The voice spoke from heaven a second time,  'Do not call anything impure that God has made clean. This happened  three times, and then it was all pulled up to heaven again." There's  nothing wrong with keeping the kosher food laws, but it is not necessary.  If you feel guilty eating pork, then don't do it, because that is a sin.
But if you do not feel guilty than your free to eat as long as you  don’t gorge, and this was true for the Gentiles who Paul was preaching  too In the New Testament, it does not matter what you eat. If you  don’t agree with me, well that’s your right. Unless you live in Iraq and  have no rights, where it’s up to some guy with a gun or rock to  decide your faith. This is just one of the many reasons why I chose to be
agnostic. Anyways lets not forget what this website page was designed to be for, a
brave woman in a curl world, who never had a chance at love, life and  pursue of happiness there are many more important issues to discuss. Rather talking about food (which is really not an issue at all) we need to focus on what we can do as caring people to help others who don’t have a choice. After watching this video and reading her story. I felt compelled to do my part and help. So now I’m a member of Amnesty International, now I don’t feel so hopeless anymore and maybe in some way I can made a difference. We have to take care of one another and ill say
it again. Before anyone decides to become a Christian, Catholic, Muslim or what ever Tribal Religion you chose to be ……..YOUR A HUMAN-BEING FIRST and no one regardless of your faith or how strongly you may feel about it has no right to deal out death and judgment.

Joe It's true that the web is filled with political commentary about women being mistreated in islamic countries! But, it does not mean that the Islam is encouraging to misstreat women. If you have learnt a little bit about the islamic history, you will see that the Islam has given more rights to women than they had before.
In the USA for example, which is a christian country, any person there has probably sleeped with an other one which is not his wife or her husband! It does not mean that christianity encourages people to sleep with an other person which is not his wife (her husband).    I think, the muslims know more about the christanity as the christians. By the way, the bible prohibits the eating of pork (See: Leviticus, chapter 11), and probably all christians are eating pork :).

"chris" How about this statistic in taliban-land:
The John's Hopkins study says,"Of the 629 deaths reported, 87 percent occurred after the invasion. A little more than 75 percent of the dead were men, with a greater male preponderance after the invasion. For violent post-invasion deaths, the
male-to-female ratio was 10-to-1, with most victims between 15 and 44 years old."
Does this sound like misogyny?
By the way, The web is so filled with political commentary about women being mistreated in muslim countries that they don't have time to actually run the numbers. So, without political motivation ( since the numbers are against their secular feminist religion ) nobody has really gotten down to the nitty gritty data.
But we do have the statistics on the serb "war." Men and boys slaughtered in droves.
You probably don't want to read any more of this because it goes against your "religion."

Well I don’t know what to say I can’t believe that some one can do like this As a Muslim I can only say this is not allowed in Islam as well as in any Religion Christian, Jews, and Muslims no one is allowed for such act I think those who did this were non civilized people. Who don’t have any knowledge of religion or humanity. They just wanted to punish that girl because she disobeyed them And tried to come out of this hell living society.  I think it will be better now that we all civilized people come together and try to save other girls and boys who want to get out of this hell society  and make sure this don’t happen again. I m very much hopeful that my civilized friends will agree to me and try to save others

Before saying any thing about a religion (Islam, Christianity, Juche...),  it's better to learn about this religion throw reading its books (coran, bible, ...) and asking people who studied these religions about the real meaning of what you are reading. FromMore civilized location

Wow! To hear Christians talk the way you all are talking! No wonder there are aetheists in this world. People you must realize that not only is there a God (and a son and a Holy Spirit), there is also a fallen angel known as Satan who has infiltrated and manipulates the minds of millions. God has made us all free moral agents to live and do as we choose although he would like for us to choose him,
it's our choice. All of the mess in this world is based on the choices we make as human beings. As christians we are to be a peculiar people, set apart. However because we are human and don't always do what God desires he has given us grace, and everytime we ask him to, he forgives us of our trespasses. God is love. There is no love in the act performed here, it was pure evil. I say all of this to say that as long as people continue to look at 'man' to be perfect for that religion he claims, he will always be lower than that man. We are to look at God in heaven, who is perfect and loving, and no matter who says they don't believe in him, it won't stop him from loving you. God says Jesus will not return until everyone from all four corners of the earth has had an opportunity to receive salvation. I just hope and pray that those of you who are non believers stop listening and watching these bad examples out here and start looking to the almighty God. Hint, that little voice in your head that you always say 'something told you to listen to' is usually God
directing your path. Try him for yourself, you won't be dissapointed. Then you can join those of us who pray against things like this amongst other things,and get results. The word of God says 'the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much.'

"chris" Your criticism that my bringing jesus into the argument was spurious because he was preaching to the Romans is wrong. If we assume he was only addressing the person he was speaking to at the time,  the new testament would be rather empty. ( personally I think it is already empty )  Parables chrissy boy, he was speaking in parables.
My last attempted posting to you was so voluminous that the site didn't post it. Understandable. There's no way to convince you even if I wrote a book. Let me summarize what it is that I am saying about the event that led to this debate.
The incident of the stoning was reprehensible, but it is an insignificant part of a much more pervasive evil. I am telling you that men are the victims of their cultures. A ubiquitous flaw in all cutures is the assumption that men are evil and women are good simply because men have to do the dirty work. They are forced, in every culture to advance the will of that culture's mores. They didn't ask for that job. They were condemned to it by birth.
It is fundamental in the USA. "A boy has to take care of himself." "girls are made of sugar and spice .." jails are full of men" "never hit a girl" . men take the crappiest jobs.. from crawling in the  filth of septic systems to dying in the front lines in battle. The USA is replete with that truth. This is not a small "inequity" that needs some simple adjustment.  It is the mainspring of the same immoral behavior that killed this girl. Your brushing it aside shows how victimized you are. You
can't accept the truth when it smacks you in the head. You are afraid to face it. Read Plato's Allegory of the Cave and you may get some reprieve from your blindness.

"chris" How you reverse everything. By ignoring my central argument (or missing its import) it is YOU who is ignoring my "worthwhile" discourse.
If you just go to the web and dig a little, you will see that the american view of the world conveniently ignores the plight of men in every situation and amplifies the significance of mistreatment of women. That viewpoint is a complete distortion of the way the world works but it is universally accepted. Look at any actuarial table for any country and you will see men die violently at much higher rates than women. That is a truth which you have been trained since birth to rationalize away.
Yet when  that violence spills onto a few women.. now you say.. oh that's wrong let's fix it and the world will be made right.
It is me telling you that there needs to be a reformulation of cultures. It is you who is refusing reform. It is hard to fix one's own culture because the culture is itself the measuring stick we use to assess right and wrong.  Thus we are prevented from measuring its goodness or badness because we can't get outside the culture to measure it. But thankfully there are enough perverts like me that were never completely acculturated. (not by plan).
Now here I am trying to convince you that your measuring stick is warped. No matter what evidence I submit, you rationalize it away. This situation is classically described in Plato's 'allegory of the cave.'  There is probably nothing I can say that will convince you otherwise because it all gets filtered by your arrested cultural outlook. In fact, you are one of those thousand guys. You are as much in the grip of your vile culture as they. Do you know how many people are killed capriciously
everyday in and by your "civilized" country... in your name? Men, like you, do the killing. And the answer is more death penalties, and invading other countries and slapping enormous numbers of people into overcrowded cages. (aka jails). So the anser to the violence is more violence, and the terror grows. Don't you want to get off this treadmill?
One more attempt. I'm patient.. if this web site will indulge me.
When you saw this video you were repulsed by the savagery of a large group of men stoning this helpless girl who had really done nothing wrong. See? I completely understand what you are thinking. I can write it in one sentence. But you do not understand what I am telling you. I'm telling you how to fix it.. everywhere. What you saw was a mirage. The true evil of this event permeates every culture, especially ours. The evil is not misogyny, or "honor killing," or a gang of violent men. It is the culture that gives emphasis to the beast in man. But it CAN BE FIXED. The root of the problem is in the global culture.
One of the worse tendencies for humans is to cure symptoms rather than the disease.  That's like Bush planting a "democracy" in Iraq to fix everything. We planted a democracy in Zimbabwe (where women vote) and the breadbasket of Africa wilted. It didn't fix anything. Neither will this invasion.
This is the answer. Men must redefine themselves to decouple the atavistic ape from the cultural mores. I'm not talking about effeminizing men because if anything women are even more violent than men. I am talking about removing the cultural bondage that forever ties men to animal brutishness. It is the global culture of ape-ism that has to be cured. We need to be de-aped.  The military is one of the worse offenders for sustaining the status quo. Apism is expressed in team sports and
competition for sex and street gangs and governments and religions and etc. All
of these encourage the violence of men and harnesses it to destroy other humans. That's it. I've had enough.

Joe—Obviously you feel inferior therefore you need to resort to name-calling, thereby negating anything worthwhile you may say.  Yes, we are on the moon and will never understand each other.  I’m calling for reform within cultures, and you seem content with the status quo and apparently justify the sheik calling for Dua’s execution since he is a representative of a god or is god on earth. You seem to be ok with “martyrs” because it has been programmed into them, and that’s mainly in
Pakistan.  So can you point to 5,000 gay Muslims or unwilling martyrs who are hung, beheaded or killed by their very own families on a  yearly basis—somehow I doubt that. You see, there have to be rules, and they are not at the whim of some old crank who wouldn’t dream of risking his life in the same way. Sorry, these ideas hold no water in the US or in England where fathers/uncles who commit the “honor killing” of their young women are appropriately punished.  Severe punishment usually does not  discourage these heinous crimes from continuing, but cultural education does, and we need more of it.
And don’t bring Jesus into this discussion; the whole “give unto Caesar” line was written for the benefit of the Romans.  There is no “man-hating” on my part or on the part of my culture where rules apply to both genders.  Yes, we have problems in applying rules fairly and evenly and at times we are not as democratic as should be, but stoning and “honor killing” as it is practiced belong in the ancient times not now and for shame on those who still do this and condone it.  Jesus was also quoted saying, whoever is without sin should throw the first stone.  It’s a line better remembered then many of the others found in the bible. Adios.

Religion is dangerous. Islam is pollution.
These kurds, muslims, arabs, yezidi, who- and whatever they are, whoever you offend with your offspring or community. You've shown the world your true colors. Mentally ill by nature, brainwashed by religion, evil unleashed by satan itself, seeds planted by former ancesters rooting back to stoneage. The release of this video alone has caused other senseless acts of barbarism already (against your own kind).
Every monkey part of that sadistic herd from hell that sees himself back in that video should come to senses and come to a conclusion that it is probably best to find the nearest rope, or sharpened stick by lack of better means, and hang yourself to death.
Anyone, religious or not, whoever feels to defend this, or comes up with some sort of defensive arguement based on religion or culture or association need to get their heads examined, or really waste some more time studying your personal book of God's wisdom before spewing out random ill interpreted (based on intellect) passages and scriptures justifying everything and yourself.

"chris" I am reticent to dominate this web site with a debate over the point I have tried to make over and over. But just one more try to penetrate your thick american skull is worth the effort.
If you had 100 people lined up to be shot, ninety nine of which were men and one woman, even you could see that it would be silly to say that the killing of the woman was an act of "misogynistic brutes."
The "honor killing" title is only one of the many ways that this middle east culture kills its adherents. How about men who perform one homosexual act? What do you think happens to them? That is a cultural taboo too and is punishable by death and not in very pleasant ways. Yet it is strange that the web is not full of debates about misanthropy.
And that's only a single taboo. They have a lot more and they enforce them everyday against men. Men are also called upon by cultural demand to defend their religion (martyrdom) and homes.. this requirement has been programmed into them since birth. Not their fault.
With respect to your proposition that these guys "knew they were doing something wrong," becaue they ran away afterwards. That is a complete misreading of the middle east. All justice comes from tradition/god. If the laws are not consistent with the sheik's command, it is not only ok to break the laws, but required. However breaking the laws does not require that they stand there afterwards until the police come to arrest them. They know they have to break the laws of man to fulfill the law of god. (in fact J.C. said as much in "give unto caesar.."
My final statement is that this was not an act of a thousand men against a single woman as much as a culture against  humanity. Unfortunately in man-hating, we have a culture that is nearly identical.

joe  "Yet they have no power to stop cultural and religious traditions..."
“Cultural and religious traditions?”  The Kurds are said to promote democracy.  Recently, they have had their own stable government, and we spent an awful lot of taxpayer dollars seeing to it that the Kurds have their democracy.  It is time they give up their cruel and unusual punishments that are inflicted at the whim of the masters.  Now if you also bring religion into this, you’ll have a lot of people upset.  The only reason the Kurdish authorities issued arrest warrants was because religion was brought up as a reason for Dua’s execution.  While some have said that no religious text condones stoning, there are examples of it in the OT; I don't know what the Koran says.
"I contend that no matter how ugly and inhumane this act was against this woman, the men involved were driven by forces over which they have no control."
The men certainly did know that what they did is wrong and stoning is against the law.  They had sense enough to run and hide before being found didn't they.  They were afraid for their lives, weren't they.  Four policemen were held for a while and let go, since the sheik announced that they really had no power to stop the execution (which he ordered).  The supposed “Kurdish Romeo” had sense enough
to flee for his life.  But no one allowed Dua to flee or did anything to help her get to a safe house before being taken and killed in the street.  The sheik wields tremendous power over the populace, the police and Iraqi army in his jurisdiction,
because there has been a complete breakdown in Iraqi society.  So if this is what you mean, then we are in agreement.
"It's about time we put an end to the bad thinking that men are brutes and disposable." I never said men are disposable.  The ones who planned and executed Dua’s murder are misogynistic brutes, and all the others were caught
up in a mob mentality or strangely too afraid to act to protect her even though they had weapons.  Bush should demand that the Kurdish allies put a stop to “honor killing” since it brings them and as a result us nothing but dishonor, and as Talabani said, the Kurd’s dirty laundry is out now.

"chris" I fell into that trap once.. that it is men who carry out the dirty business of society so they must be guilty. But now I realize that makes the case for men even worse. They are the victims of a global social order and they are the executioners too. How foul does it get?
Men did not ask to be the "aggressive" partner. It came with the territory. And if men don't accept that power, they will have hell to pay. ( and they'll be sleeping alone )Yet they have no power to stop cultural and religious traditions that have enslaved the biological imperative to act.
The vicious aspect of the whole thing is that nobody can see men as victims except me, and I'm not that smart. What the hell has every man been doing since the dawn of time?
You say less men are killed/maimed than women for acting against cultural taboos?  You better do your homework. even in the USA 99 percent of the people in jail are men. and laws are made by men. Do you think that is because men are more evil than women? That they are more 'criminal' is a statment about society not recognizing the dilemma I just spelled out.
I contend that no matter how ugly and inhumane this act was against this woman, the men involved were driven by forces over which they have no control.
It's about time we put an end to the bad thinking that men are brutes and disposable. That would go a long way to fixing every corner of this earth.

joe --- "MEN ARE AS VALUABLE AS WOMEN. MEN DO NOT DESERVE TO BE KIlled EITHER. So stop the crackpot value comparison."
Just one last thought.  You’re comparing apples with oranges.  These Muslim men are killing their own women.  In Dua’s case, they are Yazidis killing their own women.  What’s mind bending is that they call these murders “honor” killings in which younger familial perpetrators get off with no sentence or greatly reduced sentences.  More than likely, the sheik decided Dua's fate and prohibited
anyone from doing anything to stop it, and that included the police and members of the Iraqi army.  Because the Yazidis are such strict endogamists, my guess is that the fatalistic Romeo/Juliet story that emerged isn't true.  Rather, Dua just didn't want to marry someone they chose for her, and they finished her off for resisting.
Now, if there is true evil in the world, stoning is one  sadistic act fits the definition.  The UN does think 5,000 deaths are a low estimate for worldwide “honor” killing; at the same time, you’ll not find 5000 men being killed on a yearly basis for taboo
infringements.  In any case, they are usually buried to the waist giving them a greater chance to escape than women who are usually buried to the neck.
The closest we have to "honor killings" in the US are crimes of passion--the latest conviction and sentence was for a murdered minister's wife.  The preacher’s wife got three years for his murder of which she already spent time in jail, so she’s
getting out after 211 days in jail—there’s something very wrong with this picture in the US also. 
Sorry to make your stomach turn, but if you haven’t heard about Chechen’s claiming that Ruski soldiers boiled their kids, then you missed the claim as
shown on MSM during the Beslan hostage crisis in 2004.  The mother blamed the insanity of Beslan on retribution and vindication for the deaths of their children by the Ruskies.  But there is only so much human rights groups are allowed to do, and the police are not allowed to document what the military does regarding torture techniques of the Russians or the Saudis, Syrians or Egyptians respectively.  However, the Uzbeks have been documented using this very technique.  Russia did not sign onto the ICC but neither did the US.

You are wrong again. I have been in sweden. It was boring. I never knew a country could be so large and lack anything that resembles culture. It is a land of mindless socialistic mantras with matching architecture.
You seem to be hung up on the political correctness of "they don't respect women blah blah blah." How about you don't respect men? How about that? Not only are you racist, you're sexist too.
Your version of "respect" for women by giving them a vote is bizarre. Zimbabwe has universal suffrage. Are you calling that a sane country?

You could introduce them to the samis and maybe the samis and PKK could form a separatist party and break norrbotten away from sweden by mounting murderous guerilla attacks on the neighboring swedes.
You swedes are as smug as americans.. detached, insensitive and ignorant. If racism was an olympic event, sweden would take the gold.

"Joe", nobody deserv to be killed, but I still can't see how a turnover of Kurdistan would solve the problem. I don't think you are american, you are probably a turkis nationalist. There is allready over 20 millions of kurds in Turkey, they are not even allowed to speak their native language and you want to add another 6 millions
to those. You are not an american, you are probably turkish nationalist with no respect for anything but ataturk and racist ideas.

"dennis" if a "free and democratic kurdistan" will give these thousand guys a thousand votes and this girl 1 vote, I don't see how that will change anything. First they will elect to stone her, and then they will.
"chris" only 5000 across the entire middle east? I imagine at least twenty men are killed for every woman. What about them?  MEN ARE AS VALUABLE AS WOMEN. MEN DO NOT DESERVE TO BE KIlled EITHER. So stop the
crackpot value comparison. Focus on the deaths of men since their deaths are
astronomically higher in every category of dying and you will make more sense.
Also, I understand that George is Having Vlad over to the cottage this week-end. Do you think they will serve his favorite meal, boiled chechen cherubs? You know, what you wrote about that was so inane I can't believe you actually typed it for us to read.

The US attacked Iraq because SH was supposedly supported terrorists and terrorist groups.  So how come the US can, without any guilt, support the PKK
who ventures into Turkey and Iran.  I'm confused indeed.

The EU is demanding that Turkey put a lid on its "honor killing" considering that the country wants to become an EU member.  So, one might say the EU is trying to do something about this misogynistic behavior practiced mostly by Muslims
today as opposed to it being a more widespread Mediterranean custom.  However, the suicide rates among young Turkish as well as Kurdish girls has gone up in addition to others around the world.  These uneducated degenerates give their daughters a choice of either taking poison, a bullet or a rope. 
The UN states that about 5,000 women die as a result of honor killing yearly.
Wars come and go, enemies sign peace treaties and begin trade, but the wanton killing of women to restore the family's "honor" remains.

This is vile of course. But before my fellow USAers get too carried away, realize that the only difference between this and cluster bombs is that these killers face their victims.
And for those of you who think that the men involved were not encouraged to do this by their women, think again. All your idiotic commentary is out of touch with reality. If a man is killed (and they are every day over there) for one of their whacky taboos, nobody notices. I guess men are expendable in your world.
And you european whimps. Your governments are accomplices to all of this killing because your greed keeps you from actually doing anything to stop it.
Vladimir Putin is the only world leader that has the courage to speak out against what is going on assertively. Why isn't europe behind him? The word cowardice comes to mind.
My answer is simple. Turn kurdistan over to the Turks. Problem solved.

As I've been reading the comments, I see more rage. What astonishes me is that the pictures are taken with cell phones, yet these people still live in the dark ages!!  In my opinion, all of these patriarchial religions have one thing in common; men are considered more powerful than women. I know that there are extremes but this
attitude needs to change. Men may be physically stronger, and I can see why that would be important in these backward societies, but in these days, if there is something that a woman cannot physically perform, there is a machine or tool that can help. What we women need more than anything is to bond with one another and WORK to change things. This needs to be of paramount importance!! Women that are living in these type of conditions, need the strength of their numbers to plan and make way for change. Those of us who live in more enlightened societies NEED TO HELP in any way possible. Women are very strong!!We can make way for change.
There is strength in numbers. Let's work to help out our sisters!!

1) Kurdistan is an ethnographic region, not a country, as far as politics and geography are concerned.
2) Honor killings happen also in Christian communities in the capital of Jordan. Unfortunately the religion of Islam was reavealed to peoples who make no use of it, who don't understand it, who misinterpret it, who don't want to adjust it to the present world. That is the source of all problems.
3) The video is only one shot, double it, triple it... There are hundreds of killings in the name of honor every day, no one cares. There is a huge campaign launched in Turkey against honor killings. People force girls to commit suicides on a massive scale so that it does not look like a  murder, but a murder in fact it is.
4) If we let uneducated arabs, turks and kurds in to Europe (like France, Germany  already did, England s gonna face a similar problem too, very soon indeed), there're gonna be serious problems and we being  so terribly politically correct all our lives, wont be able to tackle this crap. We do observe those atrocitities in the ME rite now, however we may expect similar stuff happening on a daily basis in several years time here on our ground, in the streets, in the very heart of Europe, not so long to wait to, innit?
5) I've nothing against Muslims, I'm one, however I do apply my damn reason and logic, which a number of muslims is not able to do. I had a personal contact with people like them and to be honest, it's like dealing with children, people from a completely different planet, insane, turning savage when being contradicted!! U guys better take a look at those who come to Europe from ME, how they behave, how they treat our girls/women, how they react and how much they are not eager to adapt to different conditions and culture. U still want to see Turkey in the EU? A
good joke! 30% of it - yeah, 70% - forget about it.

Obviously, the decades of war has an affect on anyone's mind.  Christians stopped crushing people between stones and burning witches at the stake in the 1600's.  But, lynching, bombing, shooting occurs regularly.  Every five years or so, the West has to bomb some country.  It must be human nature.  However, there is no excuse for a society to kill its very own women.  It is simply called misogynistic behavior on part of its so called "men" in a degenerate and ultra-patriarchal society.

I request all of the westeners to please study, before  you make a comment. And if you do study, you will find the girl innocent, and the stoners antagonists. And about the event, it's against Islam, and what Al-Queda is doing ( I have consulted many experts of Islam about this) is totally against Islam, and yes, they are terrorists, and yes, Usama has to be killed, but due to illetracy, and failure to understand Islam, many people do not think so. So please, blame

This 'honor killing' was not committed by an islamist group, it was committed by the girls family who are of the Yezidi religion. Honor killings isnt just an islamic act, its a middle eastern act where alot of the uneducated men think that letting your daughter fall in love without your say so is a slap to their dignity. And although many honor killings can be traced back to the islamic religion, not all muslims are bad people. I am a kurd and a muslim and proud to be both, just because these villagers do this to their children and their neighbors should not reflect on the rest of us. Nishtiman I am sorry for your family and your situation.

I have to comment on this horrible crime committed by these howling devils who, if there is a god, will go back to hell. What a beautiful, fragile young girl. OOOhh how brave and "honorable" only took a 1000 of them to kill her slowly. eeech.
  However, I am a little annoyed at some of the comparisons to US racist crimes. Yes there was a black man dragged by "rednecks." Almost that same week there was a white boy dragged to death by a black man and that got no coverage! In fact, in the U.S. now there are very few crimes by whites against blacks, so progress has been made. There are, however, many, many more crimes of blacks againsts whites. How many have heard of the gang rape/murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom? Any Americans out there heard of it? No. i thought so. Everytime something like this comes up,people trot out the "rednecks' as if they are, or ever had, committed the signature hate crimes of the U.S. and the world. I am using FBI crime statistics btw. Not to mention my own personal
experience.

their punishment!  Child offenders get the absolute WORSE treatment in prisons over here.  They should all be Forced to go to prison, only after all the prisoners have seen the videos of their crime, and then REAL justice will be served!  They will be GANG Raped by big Black men and forced to be their Bitches and Slaves in Prison!  Then they will see and feel what it is like to be treated as sub-human!  Then after days and weeks and months and years of Brutal Beatings and Gang Rapes they should all contract the Deadly AIDS virus and die a slow agonizing painful death.  That is the only thing I can think of that would make them suffer a horrible death while reminding their sorry asses, every freakin day, of what they've done.  If this is NOT good...then Plan "B" is to Stone them to death the same way they Stoned poor, sweet, little, innocent Du'a!  R.I.P Du'a and may Justice be served to those cowardly Bitches that call themselves men who did this to you.

It's a crime that is unimaginable. A girl who was in love killed in the most brutal ways. And the worst thing is that the cowards were Kurds. This shows how backwards the Kurds.  This crime should go down in history and no more of these crimes can happen.  The crowd of men should have been punished to the full extent of the law. 
This type of so called family honor, is making us more backward.  It should be stopped permenantly.  The police also shoud be punished for allowing it to happen.  The public should be educated, and there should stict laws against these crimes.

To all the people who actually watched the video shame on you for glorifying an innocent girl's wrongful death! On what sick planet do people want to see another human stoned to death by barbaric animals for simply doing one of the most beautiful things God has given us the ability to do...love?
Fair enough these so called "men" (more like dogs) followed their religion (as many did before them) but let me make this clear to ALL of you..their religion is Yeisdism. This is not christian, muslim, hindu or any other religion...it is a religion of its own right. For those who are calling outrage on islam, shame on you for leading sheltered lives. Open your eyes and realise that Du'a converted to Islam and it was the Muslim Sheik who gave her shelter! Now tell me, why would a religion who has opened their arms to this girl want to commit such sins? Everyone needs to wake up and realise that there is good and bad in everything
that we do. Don't jump to conclusions and generalise when you don't know the truth or the facts. As a muslim in today's society i am sickened to think that so many people make judgements upon others and then shame those that do the same.
Du'a (which means pray in turkish) i pray that you are in a safe place by God's side. I hope your soul rests in peace and you are by your love's side without harm. I hope those animals who did this to you receive the karma that is now destined to them. RIP DU'A

Yes, I agree that we need to do something in addition to voicing our horror.  Another excellent organization that deals with women's issues all over the world which very much includes social justice is www.Madre.org.  They produced a new report entitled, Promising Democracy, Imposing Theocracy: Gender-Based Violence and the US War on Iraq.
Innocent Dua was not alone in her horrific death.  According to the UN, there are about 5,000 "honor killings" per year world wide.  And that is most likely an underestimate.

I hear a lot of use of the terms "god" and "allah" in these comments. It seems that the following of these ficticious characters or one similiar to them is responsible for the death of this young woman. Also the typical mob mentality that occurs in these situations has contributed greatly..
1000 people did not kill this girl but merely a handful of vile monsters. There is a lot of bile and vitriol coming from both christian and muslim sides in these comments and to both I say "up yours and up your respective, backward gods".
I am agnostic but just to clarify for both ill-informed sides,Christainity puts women on a pedalstal and reveres them, in the muslim world they are slaves from the time they are born until they die, being owned by the father until married and then by the husband until death (by stoning or whatever other method he chooses or possibly even by natural causes). Slavery in this world will never end until the Muslim faith (hopefully soon followed by all other religions)is wiped from the face of the earth.
All laws are based on retribution as a fundamental building block but the Americans must realise they impose the death penalty on their own sons and daughters daily as a matter of course through the American system of "justice". FAnatics and extremists of all colours and creeds need to be removed from world society and a lot of the people posting comments on this site seem to fall into this category.
I pity the girl who died, I despise the men that so callously killed her and I loath beyond belief the family that led her knowingly to that fate.
I will continue my cause to be a good person on a daily, continuous basis and hope with all my heart justice comes to those that did this.To most of you, take a pill, there's already to much agro in the world.

Classic mob behavior.  Happens more often, in more places, than anyone cares to know.  The difference here, and what adds an additional layer to the appalling spectacle, lies in its being not only socially acceptable behavior, but honorable.  Only in the Middle East could this be considered honorable.  The religion of these
people is irrelevant.  This is not a reflection of any religion in particular but of Middle Eastern culture in general.  Not even the German Nazis (or the Japanese during the rape of Nanking), as cruel and cold-blooded as they were, not even they did this shit TO THEIR OWN CHILDREN. 
Congratulations Middle Eastern man, you've attained a new low not even the Nazis could obtain.  My dog is more human than you apes.  Evolve, you sick bastards.  I can't wait to see the next Middle Eastern diplomat crying about how they can't get any respect from the international community.  Gee, I wonder why that would be?

Barbaric and cruel and evil.  I respect the beliefs of others and while some I may not understand, this is beyond human what was done to this young girl because she fell in love and married a man of another faith.  How her parents, especially her Mother could plot and plan this, to have 100 men - such cowards, stone this poor
young woman to death is something I will never understand not accept.  The horrendous violence committed against women and children in Iraq and other countries where women are considered worthless, must end.  Every human being is worth something - because they are special and unique and they were created by whatever God they believe in to be here.  God gave life, only God can take it away.  What a sad sad world we live in, when a young woman is murdered in the most brutal way because she fell in love with someone outside her own faith.
These men should suffer for this crime too and will, even though it will never be through a court or justice system.  But for every day they live, may the image of this poor young woman be in their mind's eye.  God rest her spirit in peace.  She did nothing wrong.  She only loved someone.

We used to burn witches, let's not mention the horrors during the Christian Crusades. Recently a black man was dragged to his death behind some redneck's pickup truck here in the USA. Ignorance is not just overseas. These people have been brainwashed. They need to come out of the dark ages, these changes will take generations to solidify, just like it did for us, yet we still need to work on some
things within ourselves too. Until all prejudices are eliminated this crap will continue. God created us as noble beings, why do we continue to debase ourselves? As a footnote; These things have gone on for thousands of years, why does it now bother people- because as we become aware we realize the need to change. Until we are ALL free and equal, this kind of garbage will continue.

For those people who can't read, these men were from the Yeisdism religion..that is a religion that may have historic ties to islam, but it is NOT islam. Learn to read first then make judgements and declarations of what this world needs. Thank you Chris for stating some facts to the WHITE RACE who needs to open its eyes and see the world outside of the box. Also if you know how to read, the girl CONVERTED to Islam and it were the Muslims who gave her shelter for the
four months she was away from home.
This video was as horrifying to me as anyone else here, but i think it horrifies me more to see these ignorant racists use this as an excuse to put down Muslims. For your information, Brett and whoever else, Yezidi only constitutes of 200,000 people worldwide while Muslim is about 1.3 million and is the FASTING GROWING RELIGION IN THE WORLD TODAY. Shame on you to depcit the word "white trash" to perfection.

I had to convince myself I was really seeing human beings instead of rabid animals comitting this horrific act.  I believe in freedom of religion, but when it makes people act as insane as this then it is no longer a religion it is a philosophy of mental illness.  I think all who were involved in this should receive the death
penalty and be put to death in the same sick manner.  That is justice. 
This is what freedom means to these people?  I now believe that we have wasted lives, time and money on freeing lunatics who have NO concept of freedom.

You are all morons! If you really RESPECT Dua give money to Amnesty. She's not the only one and there are plenty men that think she deserved it. Just read the comments here.
And to you who think she deserved it. WHY? Just answer me...Who has the right to judge when she deserve it.
And then if I have a religion that demand me to kill you, do I have right to kill you then. And then tell others that my religion says you deserved it.
Is that my right? It sounds stupid but for me not more stupied then what happend to Dua.

forgive anyone who takes the path of this teaching. do woman have no feelings or hearts?? cant they love the person they want to love? STOP HONOUR AND STONE KILLINGS!!!   R.I.P THE INNOCENT WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD WHO HAVE DIED IN THE HANDS OF THE DEVIL MAY GOD GIVE YOU A

I have cried and wept for how brutally this young girl was murdered. I can not comprehend how those men, any human being for that matter, could just stand there and video tape this horrific scene. How terrified she must have been.....she appears so meek...so helpless....how she must have felt being surrounded by those evil barbaric men.....The agony she must have felt....and the pain is unimaginable.  I can't even type right now bc of how bad I'm crying......I hope
justice is served! May God Bless her soul and give her the ultimate peace in
heaven for having suffered so on this earth. This is truly tragic. Du'a, Sweet little Du'a, I continue to weep for you.  I am fasting for 17 days, one day for each precious year you were on this earth.  I hope is some small way....this will honor you.  I am so so sorry for how suffered on that day.  R.I.P

I have been haunted by Du’a barbaric and brutal killing over the last few days after seeing part of the video on television.  Honor killing especially by stoning is not condoned by any Islamic text, and we know it was not accepted in the bible either. Du’a was murdered by her own tribesmen who allowed themselves to be taken over by mob psychology. 
Her very own relatives’ blood thirst took away her life, and if that horrific act serves any purpose, I hope it will be to raise awareness that such brutality does exist against women in the world.  Words are not enough to express the sorrow for these women who suffer such fate even in the supposedly “progressive” United States.  These acts must be stopped along with the torture that has recently been condoned by the most proud of all.  As an innocent human being, Du’a’s life was cut short much too early, but she continues in innocence in the eyes of God/Allah/ who is all forgiving.

Doesn't the word "forgiveness" excist in your vocalabury?
She was only seventeen (17) and did what youngsters do. They live, try and learn. Du'a Khalil Aswad died trying. Sick and twisted people took everything away from her. She lost her life because she could not have her own meaning or do her own choices because someone else didn't think that it was the way it was supposed to be. I feel despite inside me. I despite that culture and the religion. Someone grow up - we're in 2007!
Du'a Khalil Aswad probably thinks now that faith in the lord is something she will never have, cos the lord she knows don't got no faith in her.
I hope she sleeps safe and sound now; wherever she may be.

separated out Christian passengers. The remaining 23 Yazidis were driven to eastern Mosul where they were shot execution style. [7] This was apparently a reaction to video images of Yazidi from Bashika stoning to death a young woman."

Then I am looking to her body, alive, lying on the ground, full of blood, suffering in the worst pain someone can face, until a man is throwing a big stone to her head - and
her blood now is flowing covers everything around. So do we still think that we once crucified Jesus Christ two thousand years ago? And we never did that again? I see the blood of Christ - or name your God any name you wish, I don't care and it is not what really matters - in the blood of this girl.

goverenment do accept just watch the men and allow them do do such horrific crimes!!! kurdish men should be ashamed of themselves for putting us kurds down and making young ones ashamed of their own nation.... how could they kill their
daughters that they brang into this world to love and give them a good life, they were not born  to be killed when they please to do so. how could girls feel safety in their homes when they see crimes being commited like this. who are we to not forgive but you expect god to forgive you for your own sins.????  yezidis are digusting people and a shame to the kurdish nation and every person that kills
their daughters in the name of honour killing or  kill any female memebers of their family they should be ashamed of themselves.....

In Europe, people used to be hung, drawn and quartered for various crimes - about 500 yrs ago.  In the USA, in the 1600s, women were hung or burnt for being 'witches.'  We got past that.  And the rest of the world can too.  I think the men who participate in crimes like this against women are sexual perverts.  Far from protecting their 'honor' I believe they will find themselves on the wrong end of

This act of violence is... Men who believe they are doing the right thing. A family that has planned to fool their daughter, bring her back home, and finally, with the
help of the entire town, kill her slowly, painfully and with no mercy.
The reasoning is wrong, to fall in love with the "wrong" man does not equal the monstruous penalty of death.
In school they teach that if you are not reasoning well, you do not have a lack of knowledge, but of methods of reasoning.It will take many years, decades, until the day when most men will be AGAINST that destruction of the bases of the modern society.

I feel sick to my stomach and I am shivering in rage and sadness.
This is a horrendous collective homicide accompanied by laughs,jeers and chants of allah akbar. This time the entire world has witnessed this barbaric act perpetrated in the name of religion. This is enough we have a responsibility to act. Dua, please rest in peace.

The only sensible feeling shared by all comments is "SHAME". However, there is
something funny and at the same time sad about the conclusions reached in
the comments. What would you do about those who killed Du'a? Is bringing them
to justice meant to be EXECUTING , KILLING OR TORTURING them in return?
Most of the comments share the same mentality as the Du'a killers had. what
would you come up with if you execute them? Are you not like them too? try to
change your mentalities if you want to change Du'a killers' mentality. More
brutal is responding killing by killing. Try to wish to be able to kill sick mentalities not their holders.sorry guys.

People I actualy didnt watch the video because I was advised not to, having said that I did watch a footage of a female being stoned to death in iran back in 1997 whos crime was adultery.
I understand how devilish and hearltess the act is. I my self am a 22 years old kurdish male who spend 13 years of his life in kurdistan and proud to be a kurd but have always defended the rights of women and their freedom as a human being.
The message im trying to get across is, please please do not blame a whole nation for the heartless act of a few. Theres good and bad every where. There are a group of fanatics who stone a defensless poor little girl to death in the middle east and theres also drunken and junkies who stab and knife their wife or girlfriend to death in the west.
As much as seeing those people punished makes everyone feel better but also to pray to god and let them open their mind also feels good so their children and future generation doesnt have to go though the same frustration and suffication and heartless acts.
Rest in peace little Dua, your soul will always stay eternal.

Bunch of sick muppets, but then Islam is supposed to not be a violent religion. All the girl done was to love someone from another branch of islam and she was killed for it...
Muslims in England want sharia law introduced, is this what we can look forward to?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yezidi - maybe not strict muslims, but similair faith nothing against kurds, but not the sign of a civilised people who allow murders like this.

Oh my God, what is that Oh, dear sleep well blame everyone live in Iraq, all Iraqis, and is your new life? What’s your response about this crime? What has your goverment done about this crime? Nothing……..
I feel a shamed to be an Iraqi I am glad I’m not. I will ask ALLAH to send all Iraqis on to hell including my family if they don’t do something about this crime.

I am wondering if there was a statement from the mom and dad - if they are in danger from more attacks from their "family" and also what happened to Dua's husband. And - if any of the men involved have expressed regret or at least some insight into their actions.....

This barbaric act is a reflection of the sick
society which still dominates Kurdistan. Violence against women and
honor killings, especially by Muslims and Yazidis, are the order of the
day. Women given the same status as pet cats in ther est of the world. Any
girl who objects to the marriage arranged by her family will become an
outcast. The government has done nothing about it. Kurdistan's male
dominated medieval society needs to be dragged into the 21st century.

Where is "honor" in this insane, inhumane, barbaric act? Those men who did this and are ready to do this for what they call "honor" are demons masked in flesh!

Sometimes -and this is one- I'm ashamed to be a human being. Animals are more "reflexive" and compassive. I hope the killers are properly punished.

This is a very sad event and though it is shocking it is known that she is not the first or last to be stoned to death in so called honor killings. These show no honor and are just brutal killings. I worry with the video and profile this has taken this could be another excuse for the us to move more on the slaughter. I am starting
to wonder why it was even out on the net so heavy and spoke in ways when others in the past were less known of. So many thoughts on it and so little typing space I fear. There is an article on ZolaEnterprises.com that says it better but, also I am hoping for permission on linking your site from there.
I am hoping in doing this it will show people through you site the events to come on this so that the usa will not head to areas to kill even more civilians and make things worse.   Things of that sort on the effect are always something I fear and it
is sad the effect it will have there between the two religions due to the event. The last thing we need is the us hate getting into this also. Sadly some do not know the difference between people so, how can they sort the difference between religious groups of such. Some here sadly will try to blame all for this when it is only a group of Sick Yazidi People.
Here we have daily killings of guns, knives, beatings ect on our news. It is of our people killing each other also for no reason.
