Some people like to compare our society to the Islamists that we are fighting in the war on terror. They like to say that their society is just different; not any less worthy of respect. They say that we have no right to feel morally superior, no right to call them backwards. I beg to differ: The moment a teenage girl was stoned to death for loving the wrong boy Last updated at 18:28pm on 3rd May 2007 A 17-year-old girl has been stoned to death in Iraq because she loved a teenage boy of the wrong religion. As a horrifying video of the stoning went out on the Internet, the British arm of Amnesty International condemned the death of Du’a Khalil Aswad as "an abhorrent murder" and demanded that her killers be brought to justice. Reports from Iraq said a local security force witnessed the incident, but did nothing to try to stop it. Now her boyfriend is in hiding in fear for his life. Miss Aswad, a member of a minority Kurdish religious group called Yezidi, was condemned to death as an "honour killing" by other men in her family and hardline religious leaders because of her relationship with the Sunni Muslim boy. They said she had shamed herself and her family when she failed to return home one night. Some reports suggested she had converted to Islam to be closer to her boyfriend. Miss Aswad had taken shelter in the house of a Yezidi tribal leader in Bashika, a predominantly Kurdish town near the northern capital, Mosul. A large crowd watched as eight or nine men stormed the house and dragged Miss Aswad into the street. There they hurled stones at her for half an hour until she was dead. The stoning happened last month, but only came to light yesterday with the release of the Internet video. A society in which this type of thing is accepted behavior is an abomination, not worthy of it's own existence. There is a reason that our men are there fighting and dying to change these people's fundamental way of life. This is not a "Regime Change", this war is an attempt to bring these people out of the stone age politically and socially. There is no hope at all for these people if we cannot change their SOCIAL (not political) structure, and as much as the apologists, liberals and otherwise retarded people see this as our imposing our will on the Middle East, this war is for THEM, not for us. Because unless we can change their basic way of life, we have no other choice but to destroy it completely.
