New York, SANA Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al Jaafari stressed that terrorist organizations in Syria have sought with full support of terrorism-sponsoring governments to eliminate the existence of ‘the Syrian woman’ as a human being relying on shameful and immoral fatwas where hundreds of girls and women have been victims amidst suspicious international silence.
During the UN General Assembly’s session held on Monday on Advancement of Women, al-Jaafari said Syria has been suffering for three years from terrorism … the world will not forget that sixteen-year old Syrian girl from Raqqa who was slaughtered only for having an account on Facebook. The world will not also forget that girl who committed suicide to escape a compulsive marriage to a terrorist Jihadist with a Tunisian citizenship.
He went on to day that we will never forget the Syrian girls who have been kidnapped from their homes in front of their own parents’ eyes and then taken as slaves ‘Sabias’ (odalisques or women whose rapists are allowed based on Sharia- to sexually abuse them because they do not belong to the Jihadists’ religion) or Malikat al-Yamin (women taken as wives without legal or religious contracts) to terrorists calling themselves Jihadists where a single girl is raped for tens of times a day.
Al-Jaafari pointed out that for three years, members of the Wahhabi terrorist organizations have committed gang rapes against thousands of Syrian women, and these organizations sought with full support of Arab, regional and international
governments to eliminate the existence of the Syrian woman as a human being, changing her into a method for entertaining terrorists and imposing their ill dark ideology on them.
He clarified that this obscurantist ideology has imposed restrictions on women inside their families, in the way they dress, in education and within their society through Sharia court verdicts that contradict with the level of Constitution-ensured dignity and freedom the Syrian women were enjoying throughout the past decades.
Al-Jaafari pointed out the terrorist groups committed crimes inside the refugee camps in the neighboring countries of Turkey and Jordan where they have been suffering from the most atrocious forms of sexual abuse and psychological suppression as well as human trafficking.
The so-called international community, some senior UN officials and many western countries known for their frequent statements on supporting women were only busy accusing the Syrian government, ignoring that it has -contrary to the Saudi regime- ensured women’s rights in all life spheres side by side with men.
Al-Jaafari said that after three years of the multi-nationalities terrorist war against Syria and after the so-called international community, including the countries which support terrorism, realized the atrocity of that takfiri terrorism, the Syrian women wonder when the countries which are involved in this dirty terrorist war will reconsider their criminal calculations and stop
backing terrorism to allow hope, security and peace needed by the Syrian women to return to their country.
He wondered is not it the time for the senior officials of the United Nations UN to reconsider their suspicions about the evidence provided by the Syrian Government on the activities of the foreign armed terrorists, asserting the importance of implementing the resolutions of the UN Security Council No. 2170 and 2178 away from any exceptional readings.
Al-Jaafari said that the Syrian women were the first spectrum of the society which have paid the price of the terrorist attack against Syria, particularly due to the close-minded ideas of the takfiri ideology which is backed by the regimes of the Gulf and Turkey and the Wahhabi fatwas which humiliate women and deprive them of their rights, achievements and their active role in the Syrian
He referred to the fatwa of the so-called Jihad al-Nikah or Jihad marriage which Syria has warned the UN about its danger for several times and called upon the UN bodies to take prompt and serious measures to stop this shameful phenomenon and to account those who issue and promote this fatwa.
Al-Jaafari added that Syria’s calls for curbing this phenomenon has not been heeded despite of the fact that Western and Arab governments admitted the existence of this phenomenon in their own societies.
He indicated that the suspicious international silence towards the suffering of the Syrian and Iraqi women has allowed this shameful fatwa to spread and continue as the number of its victims has reached hundreds as the women are begging for freeing them from this torture.
Al-Jaafari referred to a report made by British The Guardian Newspaper in which it depended on statements of the interior ministers of some of European countries in which they say that their countries export girls to Syria such as France, England, Germany, Austria, Sweden and the US, adding that some of those girls are less than 13 years old such as the French girl Noura.
He reiterated Syria’s call for exerting more efforts and paying the utmost importance to stop this immoral fatwa and to find the suitable mechanism to account the governments of the countries which have a legal authority on those who issue this fatwa or spread it.
