How can victims be punished or murdered for being victims. How can few people stand up and say, "Hmm... you know what, I don't think murdering rape victims is the right method of justice."

The word barbaric springs to mind. These people honestly live in a savage and barbaric culture. I understand my own culture is not perfect but at least we are capable as a society to understand that rape victims need support, not threats and violence for being forced against their will to engage in activities which will haunt them for the rest of their life!

It is sub-human, I can not look at these people are see fellow human beings. I see animals who are thristy for blood. Heck, my own dog does not behave in that manner.

This woman and her family are an exceptional people amougst these savages. They deserve safe passage to a friendly country where their lives can continue and support can be offered. Their security and well being should be a priority.
