Today, a 13-year-old school girl wearing a vest packed with explosives fortunately turned herself to authorities north of Baghdad. She doesn’t want to be a suicide bomber, she told the police. I have reported here and at Salmiya about the recent incredible rise of terrorist activities of women in Iraq. What kind of cowards and abject criminals these accomplices (mothers? fathers? husbands?) in the back must be!
What a shame that the Muslim world seems to keep silent about this scandal that women and (again!) defenseless and innocent children are send in a ‘war’ against …actually whom?
Raniya Imbrahim, the would-be female suicide bomber, is now reported as being 15. Her husband, allegedly a member of Al Qaeda, and possibly her mother had tried to convince her that life in Paradise would be a better one.
A great shame for Iraq anyway.
