German, South Korean Women Mutilated and Butchered in Yemen

Two German nurses and a South Korean woman went on a picnic in Yemen. A shepherd was walking his fields and found their mutilated bodies. Six other foreigners were picnicking with them, and they are missing: a German doctor, his wife and their three children. See updates below. According to sources, this is the work of al Qaeda. I found this piece at Holger Awakens and in his commentary he asks this question:

I want to know how long it will be until some of the womens' groups in America protest loudly about this atrocity. It won't happen, will it? For years now, we have seen the muslim jihadis given a free pass for every atrocity towards women of this world and why is that? It's simple - everyone in the West is too scared to call it out in fear of insulting Islam. Well, we aren't here at Holger Awakens - it's an ideology of murder, of torture and human abuse. We have women's groups in America who will protest equal pay for equal work in America but won't utter a single word when it comes to a woman keeping her life or not leaving this world with a mutilation in her last few hours.
Holger is certainly spot-on that we will hear no outrage from the feminist groups in America. I have a slightly different take on why, however. I don't think it is that these women are "scared," I think Muslims are a protected species among women in this country, specifically because conservatives, men and women, HATE the Islamic culture of oppression, violence and forced marriages. Liberal women talk a lot about the right of Muslim women to wear a burkha-like shroud, but we know that isn't the issue, and it certainly is not an issue that will give these women and girls a shred of protection. Whatever the reasons, there is no excuse for the deafening silence in America - from the silence in the White House to the silence in your house. Al Qaeda Kills and Butchers 3 Foreign Female Hostages in Yemen Holger Awakens June 15, 2009
The audacity, the barbarism, the cold blooded inhumanity of al Qaeda contines and this time it is seen in Yemen where three women hostages of the al Qaeda network in that country were found today - all dead, all mutilated. The three hostages, two German nurses and one South Korean teacher were all kidnapped while on a picnic in Yemen on Friday. And it gets worse, because six other foreigners were at that picnic and disappeared at the same time - one has to wonder if they haven't suffered the same fate. Here's some of the details from the gory story over at Breitbart:
Shepherds found the mutilated bodies on Monday of two German nurses and a South Korean teacher who were kidnapped while picnicking in an area of Yemen known as a hideout for al-Qaida. Experts said the killings bore the hallmarks not of local tribesmen but of jihadist militants who had returned home after fighting in conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. The dead women disappeared in the remote northern province of Saada Friday while on an outing with six other foreigners, including a German doctor, his wife and their three young children. The whereabouts of the six were unknown, the Yemeni government said. "I think that it would have to be outside sources" that carried out the attack, said Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism expert at the Swedish National Defense College, noting that the killings, including reports that the bodies were mutilated, bear the hallmarks of al-Qaida.
When you picture this scene, stumbled upon by the Yemen sheperds, you have to wonder about a couple of things: first, what al Qaeda leader would claim responsibility for this and how would he explain the mutilation and secondly, I want to know how long it will be until some of the womens' groups in America protest loudly about this atrocity. It won't happen, will it? For years now, we have seen the muslim jihadis given a free pass for every atrocity towards women of this world and why is that? It's simple - everyone in the West is too scared to call it out in fear of insulting Islam. Well, we aren't here at Holger Awakens - it's an ideology of murder, of torture and human abuse. We have women's groups in America who will protest equal pay for equal work in America but won't utter a single word when it comes to a woman keeping her life or not leaving this world with a mutilation in her last few hours. Al Qaeda and the Taliban have shown consistently that they are simply pure evil. They follow a regimen of evil outlined for them and they, being the most righteous, follow it to a tee. And so I say, there is nothing less we can do with either al Qaeda or the Taliban than to completely eradicate them from the face of the Earth. All of them. Every last one.
Visit Holger Awakens and take a look around. If you are interested in Pakistan, the Taliban and al Qaeda, you'll learn a thing or two at Holger's.
