Uncle and Nephew Rape 16-Year-Old Girl, Throw Acid in Her Face When She Won’t Marry

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


This story takes place in Nazareth, Israel, which these days is majority Muslim. And it sheds light on the fact that one motive for honor killings is sexual possessiveness by adult male relatives.

This case isn’t all that unusual apart from its conclusion.

A 16 year old girl in Nazareth was raped for months by an uncle and nephew pair related to her. Their ages were 51 and 17, respectively.  The abuse went on for months, leading the girl to try and commit suicide. She was hospitalized several times, but the uncle and nephew team threatened that they would kill her if she told anyone what was going on.

The uncle had offered to marry the girl, even though he was 51 and had children of his own. Finally she became engaged for a second time (Yes, she’s 16) at which point the uncle, who lived next door, found out about it. He knocked on her window at night, when she opened it, he threw acid in her face.

According to her mother, “She opened the window a little and told me she wanted to let in some air. She was lying on the bed with her head turned to the window and asked me to close the door. At around 23:00 my daughter heard a voice, and before I could get to her room she rose and acid flew into her face. She yelled: ‘Mom, I’m blind, I’m deaf!’.  She said the girl’s condition is difficult. “She has not seen in three months and only then will we know what happened to her vision. I hope that Allah will save it.”

The girl has been in Haifa’s Rambam Hospital on a respirator with damage to her lungs and face. The doctors have been attempting to save her eyesight.

The mother has denied that her daughter was raped, saying her daughter was tired and dazed while being examined. “She didn’t understand what the investigators said to her. The issue of rape will cause us great harm, especially to my daughters.  The police should wait until my daughter is released from the hospital and from this emotional crisis caused to her and then they will be able to speak to her freely and confirm every word she says, but to come and speak about rape is unacceptable to us.”

This is typical also because being raped will make it that much harder for the daughter and for her other daughters to marry, as in the Muslim world, the onus of blame for rape is generally put on the woman for having inappropriately attracted a man, and by extension on her upbringing at home.

Families are pressured to cover up rapes because it only damages the marriage prospects of that daughter but creates the impression that the other daughters are “loose”.

According to her however, both she and her daughter refused the marriage request from the uncle. “It is inconceivable that a man of this age marry a 16 year old girl,” the mother said.

Due to Israel’s wacky criminal justice system, the case is only partly being unsealed now and the defendants are still unnamed and many details are missing. But there is enough out there for the Israeli tabloids to have sketched it out.

    And some people wonder why Islam is not respected?

    This is a two fold issue. Firstly, Muslim blood lust is boundless and there is NO moderate Islam. Period – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/13/muslim-blood-

    And the tie in of Islam & Blood" is also very sexual in nature – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a

    Therefore, when a Muslim girl tries to assert some independence, she is in as much danger as all "infidels". Moreover, Israeli police mainly operate with their "hands in their pockets" when it comes to Arab communities. They are instructed by the leftist justice system, as well as political higher ups, to deal with them with "kid gloves". Hence, much mayhem goes on, sans any police intervention. I know this for a fact.

    What we have is an "Honor Blinding", what else can be expected from those that are so busily engaged in killing each other?

    In some parts of the world it's called love. Wasn't love supose to hurt(like in that "nazareth" song <a href="http://?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pHNkOQCIzk)” target=”_blank”>?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pHNkOQCIzk). Stop being judgmental, you western bigots…it's their culture,you know?

      Careful, your misogyny is showing.

        I'll bet Toni was being sarcastic.

  • isahiah62

    and the lib doofuses whine about a fake War on Women in USA!! and stand up for these Muslims to have the rights to practice this debauchery, injustice and cruelty under "religious freedom" and "all cultures are equally good"

  • thomas_h

    Not to hate Islam is to be heartless.

    • thomas_h

      or,

      Not to hate islam is to be incapable of love.

    Even the electric chair would be too good for these animals. The pain amplifier from Dune, were it to exist would be a more appropriate punishment.

    • Ontario, Canada

      Animals don't act like these monsters. They are simply grotesque, disgusting monsters.

  • Ben Jabo

    Forget the electric chair, remove their parts tha t haenabled them to do it

  • Edward Cline

    Proper punishment for this uncle and nephew: Emasculation, acid thrown in their faces, one hand cut off each, no medical treatment, and then released back into the general population to see how long they survive.

  • Spikey1

    No problem what so ever, she just needs to put on a burka and all will be back to normal.
    Burkas, the paper bag of the muslim world.

      One word. Lobotomies for all of them

    The cowardly lickspittle way that "Liberal" higher-ups in the West respond (usually a non-response) to this stuff tells us a whole lot of what needs to be known about them. These are the people who "know better" than us rubes; it becomes more apparent as time goes on that they would look the other way if this kind of thing became commonplace here in the U.S., thinking as they do now, that appeasement will keep them safe. And I wonder how many of them fantasize about how "wonderful" it would be if atrocities like this could be legally committed against observant Jews, Christians and Conservatives in America. After all, it would be for "The People"…!

      It is unbelievable how the morally retarded lieberals take a supercilious tone as they whitewash and excuse islamofascist atrocities and persecution. It makes me wish I could puke all over them.

    So, the mother denies the ongoing rape. And she considers it "inconceivable" that a 51-year old man should marry a 16-year old girl. (She's never read about Muhammed and Aiysha?) But the one thing she does not address in this article is the consanguinity. Over 50% of all Pakistanis in Birmingham, England, marry their own first or second cousins. This is unheard of inbreeding among Muslims, and the mother doesn't even bother to mention an objection to her brother forcing himself onto her own daughter. "He's too old, but thank Allah we're keeping it in the family."

      well, it might be her husband's brother.
