  • Heartbreaking, horrible and beyond belief. That brings me to tears.
  • Oh! That is horrible!! Poor baby. I just cannot understand how anyone could do such a thing. There are no words to describe the utter disgust I feel towards those men...and anyone else who would condone/participate in such a monstrous act. I realize that other cultures have different views on things, but there is NO excuse for what was done to that child.
  • Another typical day in a muslim country, not much to see here, move on.
  • John 8:7 But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
  • I consider it heartening that there were people in the crowd saying it was bad, against islam/sharia. Depressing it itself, obviously, very much so. but at least this one perhaps has a tiny silver lining.
  • I remember seeing on the news about a 17 year old girl somewhere near there who breached her arranged marriage, and slept with some young man not approved by her family. The punishment for dishonour over there is death, and it's legal. They took her clothes off on a busy street, beat her up and finished her off by crushing her head with a cinder block, and nobody came to help, because it's legal. Her own family did this to her. I remember voicing my disgust for this, and being completely shot down by an older women who said I should mind my own business and look out for whatever happens in my country, and leave others to their culture. Fine, I actually agree with some of her points, but it's still sick, and as for this story, it's hard, really hard, trying not to be judgemental and biased about a culture who's people stone thirteen year children to death. I may prattle on about war and crap, but I'm really happy to live over here. I don't know what these people worship, but there certainly is a nice sizzly place in Hell for them.
  • If I were to say that all of those animals need a good killin', would it make me any different than them? Because that is what I believe. I can't help it.
  • ummm yeah that's completely logical. that's like saying lets kill this guy cause he got beat up. totally sensical
  • Lets invade Somalia...again!
  • This is a truly heart breaking story. I heard an interview once with a man in Qatar who killed his little 16 year old sister because she was raped. When asked if he thought of her, he said something along the line of "No,women are like plates, once they are broken they're useless." Totally barbaric. I have a 17 year old sister and there's nothing that she could do that would cause my brother to kill her. Just one question though, why is this posted under the Sharia Law section? I checked out the article and it said quote "Convicting a girl of 13 for adultery would be illegal under Islamic law" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7708169.stm Edit: Looks like the category has now been changed to murder.
  • Its dispicable that in this day and age, such barbaric behaviour is allowed - in whatever culture. I wish her soul peace x
  • I'm against it...
  • thank god i'm not living in Somalia thats so sad.
  • I'm glad I live in the 'Ol U.S. of A!
  • What a bunch of witless, irredemable savages. Cowards of the lowest order, the lowest of the low. Murderers and degenerates, not worthy to kiss the feet of the woman they stoned.
  • Not that there would ever be any reason for this treatment but does anyone know why she was treated in this way?
  • sick things happen like that everyday its easiest to believe it was the devil i wish it was that simple though
  • That is truly heartbreaking. Sadly, this kind of thing is not uncommon. I have heard similar stories from Pakistan and other countries. The killing of women over "honor issues" (like "she walked into a hotel", or "she allowed herself to get raped", or whatever) is far more widespread than we like to admit. We in the first world need to realize that a large part of the rest of the world is still living back in the 11th century, and it's going to take a LOT of education, resources, and time to drag them kicking and screaming into more humane and modern ways of living.
  • This is precisely why countries like this are referred to as the Third World. If this sort of action is endorsed by their government (or, at least, not condemned / punished), then the country should be put on an international blacklist, if they're not already on it. Civilised countries (and I use the term loosely, but at least countries like the UK and USA don't stone rape victims of any age to death) can wield enormous power in terms of aid and trade, and should do in cases such as this.
  • And people try to understand and change people who think like that? They are sick people and I have no help for them.
  • Prepare yourself for Shariah Law in this country, as it currently creeps into the United Kingdom with the full participation of its moronic subjects. Start boning up here ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharia
  • How do we combat this? There's no magic pill. Just as the Christian faith slowly reformed itself (no more witch burnings, or crusades, or killing heretics who claim that the world is round) so does Islam need to grow into the new age. The way to do that is through time and communication. The radical sects will lose support and membership as their people become less insular and experience more of the modern, enlightened world. Attacking them will just create fear and force them back into their fear-based beliefs.
  • This 13 year old girl was stoned to death because she had been accused of adultery. She had actually been raped by three men. None of these men were punished in any way. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/7708169.stm My comments. I feel so sorry for women who are forced to suffer in silence under the veils of their religion (any religion). I hope one day these women will be emancipated.
  • That's religion out of control. I believe in complete separation of church and state.
  • stop all religions . it is the religions that advocate the hatred. we are in 2008 we need civil societies with civil human laws . all the religious law are to be banned .
  • Sadly we still distribute stories of legendary community leaders (e.g. Moses) who believed that a higher authority sanctions stoning certain people to death. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The men who committed this atrocity were once innocent children. They grew up to believe that their religion demands acts like this. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Leviticus 20 20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 20:3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 20:4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: 20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. Enough said!
  • Throw the stones back at the men. The raper was prob part of the group of men. In some countries it is still seen that women are obsolete to men. Sad
  • ..my thoughts are this .. i think about my own daughter, and imagine something so horrific and scary ever happening to her.. i would rather be dead myself than have to see that i think.. but yet in the world atrocities like this continue to occur..:O( ..i personally can do nothing.. except hold on to the hope..that the men and women we trust to 'run'..'govern' the world for us, also have children.. the world should be run on empathy ..:O)
  • That is awful!!! Sometimes I hate this world and primitive people.
  • i hate such kind of people who kill inocent people in sheald of religen....these people re abuse to the society of human rites
