Over at the oxymoronically named "Palestinian Center for Human Rights," there's a report of a family honor killing of Sherin Khamis Zayed. The murderers are "Unknown persons" -- got that? The father and several of her family members were arrested -- "unknown persons." Sherin Khamis Zayed is victimized yet again by Muslim media -- covering for the murderers.
Women ain't human, so they can't have Pali human rights? Chattel isn't human. Property isn't humanity. A hymen is a hymen, it isn't human.
Woman killed by unknown persons in Beil Lahia to "maintain family honor" in Muslim occupied Israel (Gaza).
Woman killed by unknown persons in Beil Lahia to "maintain family honor" Palestinian Centre for Humn Rights
On Monday, 12 April 2010, Sherin Zayed (al-‘Attar), from Beit Lahia town in the northern the Gaza Strip, was killed allegedly to “maintain family honor.”
According to the field follow-up of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), at approximately 11:50 on Monday, 12 April 2010, the body of Sherin Khamis Zayed (al-‘Attar), 32, was brought to Martyr Kamal ‘Edwan Hospital in Beit Lahia, as she was hit by several bullets to the head and the chest. The chief of police in Beit Lahia town, Sameh al-Sultan, told a PCHR fieldworker that the police opened an investigation into the incident and arrested a number of the victim’s relatives, including her father. The father told the police that five masked gunmen raided his house on Monday morning and pulled his daughter outside the house and fired at her. Data provided by the police indicates that this crime was committed allegedly to “maintain family honor.”PCHR strongly condemns this crime, and:
1. Expresses concern over the recurrence of murders against women in the Occupied Palestinian Territory allegedly "to maintain family honor." Such recurrence may be attributed to the relative impunity granted to murderers, who are often sentenced to less than 3 civil years of imprisonment, equivalent to 24 months of effective imprisonment.
"Occupied Palestinian Territory." It's Gaza, asshat. Israel unilaterally pulled put in 2005. Although I agree -- it's illegally occupied by .....Muslims.
2. Calls for suitable deterrent penalties to be applied to "family honor" murders. These murders must be dealt with in the same manner as other crimes of willful killing, taking into consideration international human rights standards. Many murderers use the claim of maintaining family honor as a justification for the crimes they commit in order to benefit from more lenient sentences.
Obama says, respect it.
