  1. Let's bring some more of these fine folks into our country.

    LONDON (Reuters) - A Kurdish woman was brutally raped, stamped on and strangled by members of her family and their friends in an "honor killing" carried out at her London home because she had fallen in love with the wrong man.

    Banaz Mahmod, 20, was subjected to the 2-1/2 hour ordeal before she was garroted with a bootlace. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase and taken about 100 miles to Birmingham where it was buried in the back garden of a house.

    Her badly decomposed body was found in April 2006, three months after the killing.

    Last month a jury found her father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari Mahmod, 51, guilty of murder after a three-month trial. Their associate Mohamad Hama, 30, had earlier admitted killing her.

    On Thursday at a pre-sentence hearing for Hama, the Old Bailey heard details about Banaz's last moments.

    Prosecutors said the three convicted men, along with two other suspects who are still at large, had carried out the killing fearing that the authorities were closing in on them.

    They believed Banaz had brought shame on the family by leaving her husband, an Iraqi Kurd she had been forced to marry at 17, and falling in love with Rahmat Suleimani, an Iranian Kurd.

    Her former unnamed partner had raped her as well as repeatedly beating her, the court heard.

    Hama, who prosecutors said had been a ringleader in the murder, was caught by listening devices talking to a friend in prison about the murder.

    In the recordings, transcripts of which were relayed to the court, Hama and his friend are hearing laughing as he described how she was killed with Banaz's uncle "supervising".
  2. Where are the American women rights activists?

    I thought we would hear cheering around the globe from the likes of the earth first, sierra club and greenpeace with the fall of saddam after he set all of those oil well fires.
  3. Most of those battle axes have no 'balls' vs the true enemy.

    They prefer to pick on wimpy , effeminate Americans.
  4. I'd have to say that's pretty fucked up, although the way things work in the middle east, she had to have known that bad things would happen to her if she started screwing someone of the wrong "faction".

    Out of all the violence that occurs in the middle east, this comes to me with no shock. If this sort of thing happened in the US, it'd be all over the news.


    The uk government has had an open door policy on immigration for quite a while now, as you probably well know.

    I think their intention is to create absolute mayhem.
