Iraqi Child Prostitution on the Rise
By Guest Blogger Yesi King
MSNBC has come up with a video of Iraqi women who have been forced into prostitution to survive as refugees in Syria.
Bush’s "Democratic Revolution" in Iraq has produced some dismal results, but the story of young girls—some only 6 years old---being exploited takes the cake. It is both appalling and heartbreaking.
The video is served up with typical western-media cynicism--as though America played no part in this latest horror story from Iraq.
Furthermore, how do our fellow Muslims supporting such an atrocity sleep at night? Perhaps it is that I am a naive convert, but I just don't get it.
