Assalaamu alaikum:

An interesting American site..See there are those that protest and disagree with the wars and occupation see

Abeer was her name.

Excerpts from site:

?Abeer was the 14-year old girl that a was brutally raped and murdered by several US soldiers. Hadeel was her little sister, and Fakhriya and Qassim were her mother and father. They were murdered in cold blood by the same troops. It really bothers me, and I've been guilty of this too, that we tend to refer to them as "the Iraqi girl" or the "14-year-old Iraqi girl" or "the Iraqi family." Let us learn their names. God knows, the press will not talk about them by name, nor with they even allow this young girl her adolescence, referring to her in terms that imply she was an adult.

Abeer, Hadeel, Fakhriya and Qassim. Remember their names, and demand justice for them. Hold those in power accountable while we do the other two?

Is too horrible for the human heart to comprehend.
She was a child, just a child who cried and pleaded
with her attackers who told her to "Shut up."

How could they?
How COULD they have done such a thing to a child
who was crying and pleading with them for mercy?

I want them to get the death penalty, each and every one of them.
I certainly will not tolerate the military turning them
loose on our streets.
I am going to follow every moment of this case.
I will not be able to forget this crime
and I will not let anyone else forget it either.

Let's promise right here and now-
WE will not let her memory fade.
WE will not allow the story to be forgotten.
And we will not let these "soldiers" escape justice
because of the first two scenarios.

The military is probably hoping this will all
fade from the public mind, but we will prove them
wrong, you and me girl.

I promise you.
