The 'Rape of Iraq' Acquires a New Meaning

Liberation and rape go together.
No title

The 'Rape of Iraq' Acquires a New Meaning

The Arabic ideology could safely be summed up in one word: honour. Honour to Arabs, however, bear a very specific significance. Honour is a word that is attached to the land and chastity of women. It is the Arabic version of nobility. Trespassing on Arabian honour is the biggest sin there is to commit, be that in the name of liberation or worse still, occupation. As an Arab writer, reporting on the rape of the looted Arab honour of Muslim women is a major decision I had to make against the ethics of my culture and the morality of my society. Yet, I had to do it; someone had to do it. And here I register my very honest apology for publishing this report that opens wounds of many Arab families in Iraq and hurts the pride of the Arab nation, confirming that if we all keep our mouths shut, the illegitimate American occupation will feel free to lie to its teeth, even more.



This photo shows one instance of four thousand cases of alleged rape against Iraqi women by USA soldiers since the occupation began.

Claiming to liberate Iraqis from its tyrant ruler, Mr. Bush Jr. packed troops and digital missiles in an adventure to conquer the proud Arab leader and teach him a lesson, after promoting Saddam as the evil of all ages. After the deliberate destruction of the infrastructure, cutting power and water supply, seizing people, crushing the gates of the Central Bank in Iraq and throwing Iraqi Dinars in the Streets , and looting the Museum of Baghdad with its 5000 years-old artefacts, the American genius of technological civilisation and economical globalisation went on to dismantle the Iraqi army, open presidential palaces for muddy combat boots to foul the sheets of the presidential bed, tartar-like. The dishonourable murder of the presidents sons was not even the finale of that barbaric aggression. Iraqi citizens are tortured, arrested and physically raped by the American troops. Their revelling in the act of sexual torture was documented by the American mercenaries themselves. An American Muslim sent the pictures to Arabia. Claims that the pictures are not authentic or that rapes are not the order of the day for occupied Iraq is no different from the claim that Saddam was a threat to the US for possessing WMDs. The rape of Iraq was on top of the American agenda since Bush Sr. ; and today, his son lives to finalize the map of de-civilisation.
