Honor Killings

Activists worldwide are calling for retribution for Israa Ghrayeb, a 21-year-old Palestinian woman from Bethlehem who was murdered last Thursday in an alleged honor killing committed by her brother, according to multiple Arab news outlets.

Israa’s brother, Ihab, a Canadian resident, allegedly beat and tortured her in their family home in Bethlehem after she posted a video on social media with a man she was planning to marry.


Ihab was apparently exasperated by the video, claiming the post “dishonored” the family by presenting herself with her soon-to-be husband before the actual wedding.



Israa’s father allegedly ordered her brother to beat her after relatives witnessed the footage online.

During the scuffle with her brother, Israa attempted to escape the violence and fell out of the second floor of their house, causing serious spinal injuries, according to various reports.


Without alluding to exactly what happened, Israa posted on her Instagram account that she would be unable to work for the next two months as she awaited a spinal chord operation.

    “I’m strong and I have the will to live – if I didn’t have this willpower, I would have died yesterday,” Israa said. “Don’t send me messages telling me to be strong, I am strong. May God be the judge of those who oppressed me and hurt me.”

    While in hospital, Israa was allegedly assaulted a second time, with footage appearing on social media of her screaming and begging for her life during the attack.

    Details surrounding her actual cause of death are ambiguous, with Israa’s family denying the accusations, claiming that she died from a heart attack. The Palestinian Authority has not officially commented on the alleged killing either.

    “Israa was murdered by members of her family after she posted a selfie video of an outing with her fiancé. The crime is being called an ‘honor’ killing, but this is misleading and false. There is no honor in murder,” the Palestinian NGO Adalah Justice Project said in an official statement.

    Friends and supporters claim that she was beaten to death by her relatives; some social media accounts claim that she died at home after being assaulted in the hospital.

    “After I heard what happened to Israa, I was terrified,” said Qamar al-Masri, who went to high school with the victim, according to the Middle East Eye. “I live with my family and I have my freedom to go wherever I want. But what if someone started to spread rumors about me? Will that lead to my death, too?”

    Social media users, including Arab celebrities, have reacted with disgust, solidarity and grief for Israa, starting the Arabic hashtag #WeAreAllIsraa, which emerged five days ago and continues to be trending online. Many also called on the Canadian government to arrest the brother for her murder.


    Palestinians in the West Bank have expressed outrage as well, with a protest in Bethlehem’s Manger Square calling for the criminalization of these acts and for the issue to be brought to the forefront in order to bring about change.

    According to her supporters, Israa followed “social protocol.” She was engaged to her fiancé with the permission of her parents, was accompanied by a chaperone for all of their meetings and also wore a hijab regularly.

    “As a survivor of an honor killing, Israa’s story triggered a deeply embedded fear of mine,” blogger Fadumo Adan told The New Arab.

    “We live in a world where honor killing happens every single day. We experience scrutiny, close monitoring and violation of privacy and boundaries. Muslim women are now gaining control over their financial, economic, legal and reproductive decision-making power.

    “Honor killings will never be justifiable. We shouldn’t have to mitigate the risk of honor killings by limiting our own person freedom, autonomy and self-determination.”

    I think Mosques should be completely banned in Europe and the Western world. Refugees should be barred from entering unless they revoke Islam.

    Even after she was hospitalized she was attacked again by her own family in the hospital, when she finally perished.

    Our thoughts are with all young Muslim girls and women who have to endure everyday being tortured, raped and killed by her male relatives.

    But HA supporters and naive FPMers will tell you Christians in Israel would be better under Arab than Jewish rule :lol:
    The crime happened in the birth town of Jesus, Bethlehem, which was almost entirely Christian a few decades ago, and now under PA rule it's almost entirely Muslim. Had Israel annexed Bethlehem Christians would still live there, and this crime wouldn't have happened.

    When I was little I wanted to be a firefighter, and after that I wanted to be a museum conservator. Balistinian kids on the other hand want to be shohada2, inti7aryoun & "mourabitoun".

    The hypocritical feminists who complain about this "honour killing" are the same who routinely find every excuse imaginable to justify balistinian terrorism against Jews. They are amongst the loudest promoters of the culture the balistinians have created, one which glorifies terrorism and rewards murderers, a culture that lionises terrorists and turns incorporate them in the mythological cycle of balistinian "9omoud". While their Jewish neighbours legitimately make the world a better place, the only thing the balistinians have invented are new techniques to murder innocent people. Virtually every terrorist tactic that was ever used was pioneered by the balistinians, from plane highjackings, to ramming people with cars, to stabbing folks in the streets... The worst part is that these parasites preyed on the most vulnerable, who do you think uses public transport? People who can't afford to buy a car, kids who don't know how to drive or can't afford driving lessons, elderly people, the blind, etc. Who do you think goes to a bar mitzvah in Rome's Great Synagogue? IDF generals?

    But when the balistinian gets smacked down by Israel and vents his frustration by doing the only thing he knows, that is to say by exercising his "9omoud" on those weaker than him, suddenly we're supposed to feel sorry... Screw that. They made their bed, now let them lie into it. It often starts with the Jews, but it never ends with the Jews. You were fine with violence as long as it was directed against the Jews, now that it has come to bite you back in the ass you start whining. You reap what you sow. "Feminism" in balistine is a sad joke, it should be a meme, just like balistinian gay rights.

    I don't give a sh*t about her, and neither should any of you, and that's because there's a 99% chance that this woman was about to raise her children in the same twisted, violent culture of "mouqawama". As long as balistinian culture remains a terrorist factory, these people deserve zero sympathy.

    Same thing with that "NGO" called "3adaleh", yet another shady group funded from Europe that is paid to whitewash jarab terrorism.

    Gosh you need to take a breath abl ma tef2a3.

    But this is really a perfect example of utter racism and virulent dehumanization so you can sleep in your own bed of apartheid, oppression, colonization and ethnic cleansing. That's how people justified genocide and slavery in the past and you ALWAYS lose.

    Re: topic of this thread, there has been an uproar within Palestinian society. Issue was covered nicely by Amira Haas, one of the few Israelis left with a conscience. Things are moving and quite fast over the past decade.

    None of this of course has the least thing to do that jystifues Israeli policies towards Palestinians which is really meant to kick them out of their Homeland.

    I'm happy that post triggered you. Truth hurts, and you're living proof of it.
    Triggered me? Lol. I actually get a sense of satisfaction when I read that drivel. It's sad really how you'd use something like this to justify Israeli policy. You're weak.

    The reality is that Palestinian rights will soon become the civil Rights issue of our generation, much like SA apartheid was in the late 80s and early 90s. The stupid right is always 2 steps behind. When you realize it it will be too late

    I'm ready to offer Amira Haas-been a free trip to every "pro-Palestinian" country on one condition: She has to tell every single person she sees that she's a Jewish feminist. All expenses covered by yours truly, I'll even teach her how to say "I'm a Jewish feminist" in jarabic, Turkish, Urdu, Tamazight and Chechen.

    Lots of European countries are pro-Palestinian. I don't really know what your crap means. You're not very rational. Send her to Ireland, Norway, Spain or Portugal.

    What you really intend to say is non-white/Western countries. Can't really hide your racism behind that verbiage.

    The only weak stuff I saw is the regular intersectional mumbo-jumbo you keep writing.

    Look, I'll be straightforward with you: I have 0 problems with apartheid, oppression, colonisation and ethnic reason. Wanna know why?

    Because you jarabs are world-class experts at all of this. I'd love nothing more than to see Israel emulating you by granting the same kind of tolerance you extended to the Jews in your 20 or so failed states. That would be real justice.

    Unfortunately the Jews are infected by the West's mental illnesses, but I'm an optimist, I'm counting on the balistinians to blow themselves up again and change the mood just like they did in the 90s and 2000s when they managed to change Israeli society from a dovish one to a right-wing one all by themselves.

    That's right. I'd love to send her to Ireland, Norway, Spain and other places famous for their love of intersectional feminist Jews.

    Yeah, you don't have a problem with all of this. We know that and that's the point. You think having a problem with all of that is the issue.

    That's your reality. I'm glad you're honest about it. Let the world judge.
