Lebanese Man Impregnates His Sister, Kills Her in 'Honor Crime'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A man has killed his pregnant teenage sister in south Lebanon in what was seen as an honor crime - the murder of a woman accused of shaming her family.

Voice of Lebanon radio (100.5) said Friday that the body of Baghdad Khaled al-Issa, 18, was found with stab wounds in her head and sides in the area of al-Wazzani.

Investigators discovered that her brother Jihad, 21, had killed her in what is described as an honor crime, VDL said.

It added that the victim was seven months pregnant.

Later on Friday, LBCI television reported that the investigation with Jihad revealed that he had raped his sister, which lead to her pregnancy.

"He confessed to raping his sister,” LBCI said, adding that Jihad claimed he was drunk when the incident happened.

The television channel added that he had only recently found out about the pregnancy and asked his sister to undergo an abortion, but she refused.

Every year thousands of women are killed for notions of family honor worldwide, mainly in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

In 2011, the Lebanese parliament approved a draft-law to cancel article 562 of the penal code that calls for limited punishments for honor killings.

Sick to my stomach by such behavior and mentality. I second leymounehamda: education, education, education. It will take a couple of generations to get over that hill but the effort must start immediately. And I second FT as well: article 562 is shameful and belongs to the dark ages and must be scrapped immediately.

'This guy should get the death penalty. Where is his honor? Hidden behind pubic hair. What a sick mentality? People like him, don't deserve to live.'
You are right. People like him don't deserve to live. Neither are rapists, child molesters, abusers, thieves, con artists, adulterers, men who lust on women passing in the street, haters, racists, pimps, drug dealers, men who traffic with humans, blasphemers, perverts, liars...
All deserve death and hell for all eternity!

Then let us not judge others, lest we be judged too.
If we are not merciful with others, why would we expect God to be merciful with us?
Think about that.

Go back to reading your book you ignorant inbred.

As for the murderer that killed his sister and her unborn child, he should be hanged.
Honor crimes are not welcomed in the 21st century ESPECIALLY in Lebanon.

Servant- If you are against the death penalty in general then just say so but to include con artists and liars in your argument strips away any credibility your argument may contain.

Galation 5:19-23 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

1John 3:8-9 And he that commits sin is of Satan, because Satan was a sinner from the beginning, and for this cause, the son of God (Elohim ) appeared that he might destroy the works of Satan. Everyone that is born of God (Elohim) does not practice sin because his seed is in him and he cannot sin because he is born of God (Elohim).

How much mercy did his sister receive? He should be punished severely and death is not an unreasonable punishment for taking two innocent lives... but like most patriarchal societies, only women and children are punished. Men prey on us, beat us, rape us... and all you can say is 'forgive?' Cool story bro. Getting tired of it.

@mancunian
Thank you for your comment.
I have a few things to say:
Yes I believe EVERYONE who sins deserves death. That what we DESERVE. If you have a problem with this, you have a problem with the whole Bible. But if you noticed how I apply this truth, it is not in giving death penalty to people, but rather in realizing how sinful I am, how sinful we all are.
You call me 'ignorant inbred', but I wonder how you know what right and wrong is. What is your way of measuring right from wrong, or good and evil? I am not being sarcastic, I am actually interested to know.

Missing servant-of-jesus 08 February 2013, 20:28

dear brother,
Please read again of each of my messages.
I told you what sinners DESERVE. I did not say that it ends there. I actually spoke of mercy and Grace, and how WE ought to be merciful. If me saying we should have mercy on a sinner is called 'hate', then your measure of conscience is way off. It seems you confuse exposing sin with hating the sinner.

By the way, FT, if you knew me, you would not have said what you said. But you don't know me, and this is why you understood exactly the opposite of what I said.
Jesus did come to save the sinners.
But those who do not accept Jesus as their savior, are not saved, and their sins remain. And woe to whomever will still be carrying his sins on judgment day...

If Lebanon existed under the rule of law, Mr. Jihad would be tried for capital murder for raping his sister and then killing her. There is no honor in victimizing a woman by raping her and then killing her, using his rape as a justification for his act of murder.

If he gets off, shame on all Lebanon

Lebanon was recently a Christian country. Turn back to the religion of love and mercy and give up the evil that excuses the worst crimes in the world: sex crimes - murder crimes - and crimes against your very own family. This man has transgressed against all that is human and against God who is love.

Let go of the evil logic which blames rape victims and innocent children. Leave islam if you have any heart or conscience. You see for yourself that these deeds against girls and babies are from the devil.

God is love. Only those who live by love alone follow God.

I love the way that the article says Middle East, North Africa and South Asia as the places where this stuff is epidemic. Why not come out and say it - Muslim countries. There is a problem with the way that the 'Religion of Peace' views women and tinkering with the law will do bugger all to change things until Muslims, the world over, decide that they have had enough of living in the dark ages and rebel. Muslims are as good or as bad as anybody else but have allowed themselves to be oppressed by an insanely literal interpretation of ancient hate books which they consider holy. Many of share the same heritage but we have learned to use our own minds to chose what is right and what is wrong in scripture. Most muslims also cherry pick in this way but are afraid to stand up to the forces of hate.

It's not education, but the realization that God & Satan resides in us, which'd help us move in the direction of doing good for us and the society. The current education system across the globe is good only to create atheist or christians. It does not help us to realize our true potential as humans..or a group of social beings who can bring harmony. No law or judiciary can police each and every individual in a nation. Stop being self centered and start living for the society. All the issues would vanish.
