    Al-Qaeda now claims that the 3 GI's kidnapped and murdered last month were in revenge for the rapes and murders of Iraqi citizens.

    In their statement, they claimed the murders were for
    "revenge for our sister who was dishonored by a soldier of the same brigade."

    Anyone else find this totally hypocritical? Now all of a sudden, they don't think women are pieces of lint?

    And I call BS anyway them tying the 2 together. I think they found something they can latch onto for PR purposes.
    Anyway, fuck off, Al Qaeda. Your statement is a bigger joke than you are.

    That is almost as big a stretch as tying together 9/11 and Iraq.

    "Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great." Quran 4:34

    Yeah it's a stretch

    Hard to believe the Muslims would use someone's vile actions for political purposes. Good thing we don't do that.

    Beating wives over insults “acceptable” in Jordan

    31 May 2006

    AMMAN - Almost 50 per cent of Jordanians find it acceptable for a man to strike his wife is she insults him, according to a survey published on Wednesday.

    “There is widespread acceptance of domestic violence by husbands towards wives,” said the 2005 Communication Partnership for Family Health (CPFH) Baseline Survey, published on the CPFH website.

    “Respondents were asked whether a husband is justified in hitting or beating his wife in certain situations that might lead him to become angry,” it said.

    “Nearly half of all respondents, regardless of age or marital status, report that it is acceptable for a husband to hit or beat his wife if she insults him,” the survey found.

    Around 1,847 households were surveyed from July to September 2005 for the study which was funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) with the help of Jordan’s health ministry and John Hopkins University.

    The survey revealed that 53.7 per cent of unmarried female youths aged between 15-24 agreed that a man is justified in beating his wife if she “insults him”, compared to 39.6 per cent of unmarried male youths.

    Another apoligist....I'm guessing it's acceptable for your wife to be beatan if she out of line huh?

    Yes, that is exactly what I meant. It is amazing how you can find the deeper meaning in seemingly innocuous statements.
