Israa Al-Ghareeb: A Story of Monstrosity and Cruelty

Published

By

Israa Al-Ghareeb, a 21-year old Palestinian victim, victim of cruelty and injustice in a world who wrongfully views honor, a victim of cold blooded murder by her very own family members…

The incident provoked the entire Arab world who till this moment are still sharing her story and flooding the internet with the hashtag #كلنا_اسراء_غريب, and now everyone knows the case of this young lady and how she was killed over a family dispute.

 

 

 

Here’s the story of Israa Al-Ghareeb, and what the action that must be taken. 

Israa Al-Ghareeb is, well was, an aspiring makeup artist who recently she got engaged and one day she went out with her fiancé and her sister to get to know each other like any newly engaged couple, and to document the moment, the sister took a video of both Israa and her fiancé.

Hell let loose when the video was shared with Israa’s father and brothers by her cousin, filling their minds with lies and that Israa is dishonoring the family’s name. The lies that led her father and brothers to brutally hit her, causing her a fraction in her spine which lead to her hospitalization.

Later, her father and brothers came back and continued to hit her and one nurse was able to record the beating and her screaming for help. In the end, Israa got hit in the head which caused a heart attack and resulted in her death… a brutal one.

The ones who are supposed to protect, ended up to be the ones who kill. The ones who were supposed to be her safe haven, let hell loose on her.

Now, this is surely not the first case and shamefully won’t be the last as long as this is the mentality of so many parents and siblings who believe this is the way to honoring their name. This is nothing but pure monstrosity, one that no religion ever called for and is nothing but sexist traditions that are not part of any religion.

Justice must be sought by sharing Israa’s story, spreading awareness about the case and plead for people’s to understand. Understand the unfairness and cruelty that girls go through in our Arab world, and in order to put limit to it, there must be strict laws and rules that put an end to family abuse.

 

We pray to god for Israa and any young lady suffering a similar fate.
