Radical Muslims Poison 100s of Iranian Girls to Prevent their Schooling
“Iran: Hundreds of schoolgirls poisoned to stop them from getting education.” In Islamic scriptures and law, women are very clearly described as inferior and subordinate to men. Full-face burkas, child brides from toddler age on up, honor killings, beatings, and encouraged sex slavery are among the crimes Islam explicitly encourages against women and young girls.
Iran itself is a major state sponsor of terrorism and has openly called for the death or violent targeting of Israel and America (and the latter’s politicians). The ruling regime has arrested and abused tens of thousands of Iranians (including children) as massive anti-regime protests have convulsed the country. The UK Guardian published an article Feb. 6, “‘They used our hijabs to gag us’: Iran protesters tell of rapes, beatings and torture by police.” The article contained horror stories of police beatings, brutal rapes, and torture of Iranian protestors, both men and women but especially women. The Guardian said over 500 people, including 70 children, have been killed by Iranian security forces since the protests started.
So it’s hardly surprising, though it is very tragic, that radicals in Iran would be deliberately poisoning hundreds of schoolgirls. The question is, what is the government’s real opinion of the poisonings? Evidence would indicate that the Iranian regime would be more likely to sympathize with the attempted murders than actively find out and punish the perpetrators.
“[OpIndia via JihadWatch] Iranian state media reported that school girls in Qom city in South Tehran were ‘deliberately’ poisoned in order to restrain education for them. Younes Panahi, the deputy health minister of the country on Sunday also confirmed the news of the poisoning and said that it had been a deliberate attempt with the aim of shutting down education for girls. He, however, said that no arrest has been made in the case.
It is pertinent to note here that earlier, Youssef Nouri, the Minister of Education had called the reports about the poisoning of schoolgirls ‘rumours’…According to reports, the first such incident was reported in Qom, a deeply conservative and religious city…Subsequently, girls from neighbouring cities also fell sick. Since then, hundreds of cases of respiratory poisoning have been reported among schoolgirls.
On Sunday, Majid Monemi, the deputy governor of Lorestan, said 50 female students of a high school in Borujerd, western Iran, were poisoned again…‘a large percentage of the chemical agents used are treatable’…Homayoun Sameh Najafabadi, a member of the health committee of the parliament, also confirmed in an interview with the Didbaniran website that the poisoning of female students in schools of Qom and Borujerd is intentional.
Reports in local media say this could be the work of Islamist fanatics who want to prevent girls from attending school.”
Pray for the schoolgirls of Iran and their families, that this horrible crime will be stopped.
