re: #158 Charles

By the way, some bloggers are getting this story very wrong, and saying she “had 80 women raped” to convert them to suicide bombers. That is NOT what the reports say; she apparently preyed on women who had been raped, but there’s no basis to the claim she had 80 women raped.

It’s bad enough without exaggerating it.

But the very article you link to says this:

“In a separate prison interview with The Associated Press, with interrogators nearby, the woman said she was part of a plot in which young women were raped and then sent to her for matronly advice. She said she would try to persuade the victims to become suicide bombers as their only escape from the shame and to reclaim their honor.”

It seems that she indeed was part of a system whereby women were intentionally raped in order to shame them, so that they could be sent to her for brainwashing.

The number “80” crops up later in the article in a slightly different context, so we can’t say how many people were raped on purpose as the first step toward making them suicide bombers, and we also cant say that this one woman personally arranged the rapings but…

By her own admission, she was part of a group that did rape woman as a political tool.

Your comment seems to imply that she simply gave evil advice to women who had been randomly raped by random rapists, unconnected to the plot. I think it’s worse than that: the raping was done by the jihadists themselves.
