I was listening to the BBC today. There was a lady that went by the name of "Nadia" reporting from Syria. She was working as a humanitarian aid there, up until the raping of young girls, virgins and the unmarried began. She gave reports of women and girls that she helped after these horrid acts were taken upon them. She said that girls as young as 12 and 13 were raped 15-25 times a day! She mentioned that boys were also being raped continuously by the soldiers.
She then went on to mention that men were taken for interrogation only to come back shaking. One of her relatives thought that they were given some sort of drug to make them convulse like that. When it was his turn, he came back with the real answer as to what was happening to the men. They were taken in to questioning, chained down and made to watch as their wives were being raped continuously by the soldiers. If for any reason they resisted, they would be tortured until they kept looking.
When is the talking going to stop!! I actually agree with Senator McCain on this one! I commend him for standing up to make a difference when no one else seems like they will.
It really gets to me that we are ready to back and die for Israel if there is a problem with Iran, yet on this we are just sitting around waiting for the Syrian population to be annihilated!
My Prayers are with you Syria,
