The United States now officially admits what we already knew: Abir Hamza, the
victim of that vicious assault, was born in 1991. She was only 14 when a squad
of all-American "Christian" good-old-boys killed her family, raped her,
and burned her body. Not a single member of the unit shirked from this task. None
of them felt guilty about what they had done to her (although they did regret
the retaliatory measures against Americans).
"Our boys," raised within our suposedly enlightened "Christian"
culture, considered this girl a sub-human -- a thing to be used. After all,
she was Muslim.
The photo above, taken when Abir was but a toddler, is the only one we have
at present. I don't mind admitting that when I enlarged the image and smoothed
over the jpg artifacts, I got a little choked up. And angry.
I hope every American sees this girl's face. Are our red-state Jesusmaniacs
so blinded by their anti-Muslim bigotry -- so blinded by the lies told by our
war-loving president and his propagandists -- that they cannot recognise the
humanity and innocence in that little girl's eyes? This war has had many victims;
let her face represent those we cannot see.
