There is no question that human suffering in Syria continues at an ever increasing level of violence. Daily bombings, troops on both sides firing away without regard to results of their firepower, and refugees sent fleeing from homes to live under chaotic conditions. Families fleeing often arrive at a new location without support form others and are thrust into situations which can be used by criminals to rob and abuse. A new report from the International Rescue Committee(IRC) found abundant evidence of abuse of females. “These rapes, sometimes by multiple perpetrators, often occur in front of family members.”
There is lack of funding or other support to protect Muslim women. Someone prints a cartoon and thousands flock to the streets demanding revenge. Muslim women get raped and this atrocity is met with silence. Something is wrong!
