From the Organisation of Women’s Freedom in Iraq
In one of the public health sectors in the city of Mosul, the Islamists have committed several misogynist crimes, in their thirst for blood and hatred for women.
The Islamist terrorist savages can not tolerate women working feed themselves and their families. They want them blindfolded, covered by hijab and heavy rags, thrown in the kitchens of their houses serving as slaves. They want them humiliated, with no opinion or character or a normal life like any sane human being of our time.
Political Islamist groups exploit the chaos, lack of security and absence of law since the US war and subsequent occupation to disseminate horror and terrorism across Iraq. Everyday, they add more transgressions to their criminal record against civility and women’s right. Recently these women were murdered by these Islamists:
1. Lina al-Aswad, a medical doctor who has been practising for the last 10 years. She was shot dead in Al Qayara, Mosul.
2. Hefi Abdul Satar, a pharmacist in al-Khansaa Hospital. She was gunned down before her house in al-Noor suburb. Her family has also been threatened by these terrorists.
3. Sanabul Nwel Tabakh, a veterinarian, killed in Wahda suburb in Mousul, while on her way to work.
4. Layla Abdulla al-Haj Said, a professor of Law and Dean of the Law Faculty at the University of Mosul. She was gunned down with her husband. She was also beheaded to further terrorise people in that suburb.
5. Iman Abdul Monem Younis, a lecturer at the Faculty of Languages and head of Translation Department at the University of Mosul, was gunned down.
6. Tagrid Abdul Masih, a public servant in the town of Bartila.
7. Hala Abdul Masih (Tagrid’s sister), a public servant in Bartila.
8. Tara Majeed Butros, a public servant in Bartilla.
Mass killing is practiced against women working as interpreters or working with foreign companies. Many were murdered in the last several months in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities.
Political Islam’s violence against women must be stopped. The terrorist Islamic forces must be expelled from the Iraqi society. This task relies on the willpower of women and men who are seeking a world where freedom and security prevail. This goal will only take place if the secular and freedom-loving forces stand up to the Islamic terrorism, which claims the lives of more women every moment merely for being women.
Let us make ending Islamic terrorism against women in Iraq our priority and urgent task.
Join the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq to struggle together to put an end to the Islamic violence against women.
We call on all women and men in Iraq and worldwide to collaborate and struggle to end the Islamic violence against women.
