The 5 Worst Moms In History

Published

on

Before we get down to it, we need to admit to ourselves that some women are just not exactly “Mom-material”. They have no idea what the word “Mother” means, nor “Humanity” in this case because oh, do we have some truly hideous, monstrous, and sadistic mothers on this list. This one’s not for the faint hearted:

1. Mary Ann Cotton

This 19th century nurse poisoned and killed 11 of her 13 children using Arsenic. She also got rid of all of her 4 husbands, 2 boyfriends and 2 other random people. Apparently, Mrs. Cotton was obsessed with life insurance! She was able to get away with her crimes for 20 years until she mistakingly slipped, how? Her step-son was found dead a week later, after she’d been complaining about him.  The London Times reported, “After conviction the wretched woman exhibited strong emotion but this gave place in a few hours to her habitual cold, reserved demeanor…she harbors a strong conviction that royal clemency will be extended towards her.” I mean, whoa.

2. Casey Marie Anthony

When your child goes missing, you report it to the police. You immediately do that. But no, this mother waited a WHOLE MONTH to do it. You know what? she wasn’t even the one to report it, it was the little girl’s grandmother who did. The child’s death was pronounced a homicide and Anthony was the prime suspect. After a long round of public trials, Anthony eventually went free in 2011 because there weren’t enough evidence to convict her. The public went ballistic after the verdict because almost everyone felt and knew that Anthony was directly responsible for her child’s murder.

3. Mary Ball Washington, George Washington’s mom
 

So, hear this: George Washington’s mom was apparently a true pain in the ass! She despised the American cause to the extent that she badmouthed it and belittled it to almost anyone she spoke to. All that, while George was out there with the revolutionists, trying to keep the revolution alive. Mary didn’t just complain about her loathe for the American cause, she also consistently complained about being poor, although George bought her a nice house in Fredericksburg, Virginia and the women supposedly enjoyed a pleasant lifestyle. People who knew her also claimed that she was a loyalist supporter of King George III of England.

4. Gertrude Baniszewski

In 1965, Children Jenny and Sylvia were left by their parents in the care of Gertrude Baniszewski. The parents worked with a traveling carnival and they’d promised to pay Baniszewski $20 a week for looking after their daughters. In the course of the 3 months the girls were in her care, they were physically and emotionally abused by Gertrude, her children, their boyfriends  and neighborhood youths. Sylvia, specifically was tortured to the extent that she died eventually of all her traumas. They beat her, starved her, extinguished lit cigarettes on her body for over a 100 times, burned her, forced her to strip naked and inserted a Coca-Cola bottle into her vagina, forced her to eat feces and drink urine, kicked her in vagina and injured her in it, whipped her…among other things. Sylvia was only 16 when she passed away. The official cause of death was brain swelling, internal hemorrhaging of the brain, and shock from severe and prolonged damage to her skin. Believe it or not, Gertrude was neither hanged nor sent to life in prison, the woman went free in 1985.

5. Ka Yang

In 2011, this so-called mother of four, placed her own 2-month-old daughter, Mirabelle,  in the microwave for 5 minutes. The infant died after she suffered severe burns and complete damage of her internal organs. Yang, an epileptic, variously tried to detach herself from the murder, claiming not remembering the sequence of events that took place. The murder finally admitted to killing the baby after the police found a pacifier in the microwave and radiation in Mirabelle’s stomach.

Israa Al-Ghareeb: A Story of Monstrosity and Cruelty

Published

on

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.
