Jordan Times story on latest honour killing. A girl tortured and beaten for wearing make-up. Sold out to her father by an obliging uncle.
From the piece:
Every single member of the Cabinet and every single senior official and every single journalist, judge, lawyer, activist and citizen who isn’t doing something to stop this “horror show” of crime against women, is doing exactly that: watching the long episode of torture and murder without batting an eyelid or lifting a finger. We watched this show 18 times last year. We have watched it seven times already this year.
There are no words. No words.
Hat-tip, once again, to And Far Away.
P.S. I’ve been reminded today that it’s wise to remember that the make-up thing is probably a red herring. She probably displeased her uncle in some way – perhaps he wanted to have sex with her, or wanted her to marry someone and she refused – and was therefore slandered.
