On the coerced prostitution of Iraqi Women and Girls

Post to Twitter

Here. Below is a short excerpt:

The most moving part of her e-mail was her description of a visit to prostituted Iraqi girls in a Syrian prison.”I spoke to some of them,”Ms. Adel writes,”and they said they would rather be in prison than have to go back out there and get abused by Saudi, Kuwaiti, and other Gulf States men who still hold grudges against Iraq and find pleasure in abusing Iraqi women to make them pay for Iraq’s war against these Gulf States in 1991.”
