Raping a child again.. Farewell to Maha….and we are mourning
We want to apologize for documenting that (painful tragedy) its one of a thousand (painful tragedies) within more than 5 years of the occupation period, and many crimes committing against Iraqis everyday in front of all the world and (kind) human rights orgs. And women orgs which overrun Iraq and talking about International CEDAW agreement for refusing Racism against women and children, while occupation friends talking about the American promptness about “ state of law” and bring the democracy into Iraq, as a fact when AL Maliki got his “throne” of good government we can see all Iraqis drown into muck of wild wedding and blood of Iraqi virtuous who raped even in their homes and among their families.
This kind of documenting makes us just only like a mute carrier; lose our control of the technique of that kind of missions, but no; we are not only like a recorder or as magnifier, we are carrying all Iraqi pains because the victims are our families our sons and daughters too, we are magnifying that pains but no respond, our pains had been thrown behind the emblems of human rights and the demonstration of that neat women who calls for “gander and establishing a houses for violated women by men”; spend a thousands of dollars had given by “the donors” spend it on the workshops which had been hosted by five stars hotels. And when we talk about what happening everyday to our kids like what happened to maha or Noor or Abeer, that women turn their back with carelessness because there is no place in their agenda for that subjects.
We are chained but not mute devils; we are not just only dark ink on their white papers or recorders, I’m asking like all Iraqi women; which “state of law” will give our blood or honor back to us?, and do we have to demonstrate to take our rights? do we have to ask about it under the banner” stop killing..stop raping..we want to write about love but not raping..about life not killing..about liberated country but not occupied country
We have heard a lot about the turning into democracy by American initiating, which is took the fact of occupation …deserving a million victims or maybe 2 millions; and we heard what they always repeating about what Hitlar said before, “kill 2 thirds for a third”.
Who gave Bush that right to bring the democracy into Iraq and rape Maha?
What about the two “thirds of Iraqi people”?
Who will give Maha Parent a right to trail Bush and his administration in american white house and the government of green zone?
And who would ask us to be quiet and not to anger for forgiveness and kissing the hands?
Should we say Farewell to Maha; who didn’t come back till now and we should keep mourning?
The reason of delaying that documenting that child raping is for the difficulty of reaching the family and her mother especially, to tell us the details of whole story.
So read the story of Maha raping as the mother narrated:
Under the (state) of law and Security Plan!!!!
The narrator is Mahas mother and we can’t tell her name for the family security but all documents are reserved.
Maha’s family is, the mother (W.E.A) she is housewives and born on 1967, and the father (R.N) he is jeweler (before been stolen and after what happened to his family which turned him into unstable man and refusing meet people and do his duties as a father an provider for the family until his daughter get back even with torn coffin to bury her and get quiet) he born on 1967.
The parents has 7 daughters and 2 sons, the elder is maha who kidnapped and raped she born on 1991, and S female 1993 and N female 1995, and Y male 1998, S female 2000, and N male 2002 , A female 2007 .
Maha’s family moved on 2000 from Basra to Dyala looking for job and stayed there in their home till 2007 but the moved into the unknown again after what happened to them.
Mahas mother keep telling and we can’t really describe her when she was telling us that story, every word she was saying was full of pains and sadness.
She is saying: on 16 of Dec 2006 my husband was late of getting back to home he was busy of what happened to him that day because a gang entered to his jewelry shop and threatened him by kill and then they chained his hands and eyes and beaten him. Then they took the key of the locker and stole al the money and jewelry. He was acting like a mad when he came back to home asking about the gang and they might give the money back to him. I was pregnant with my youngest daughter and we were living in worst security situation at that time and we felt that we have lost everything money, jewelry and the job.
Quietness, crying and mourning
Mahas mother gathering her courage and saying to let us tell the truth to all worlds but not to people who describe it as an “armed conflict”!!! And write a thousand stories about raping, which briefing the raping of Iraq until this time.
Then Maha’s mother saying: after a week exactly on 25the of Dec 2006 at 6 pm. our door kicked then a group of men, some of them with beards and black dress and the others with normal dress, they got in.
She is continued: and a big black car stopped next to our house but we didn’t know the kind of that car. There were some armed men inside it and some around the house; they were everywhere, but just only 4 or 5 of them who invaded the house. My husband wasn’t at home; he was investigating and try to get some information about what happened with his jewelry store, I wished he just stop doing that and leave this place.
Crying and mourning
Mahas mother saying: they told us that it is just normal searching for weapons and get some information; they separated me with maha from my other kids and put us inside guest room, and asked us about or sector and our answer was “we are not Shiite or sunniest “and one of then responded that “you are our share, your money, lives and bodies”.
Silence ……and moaning
mahas mother can hardly gathering herself while her tears wash her face and try to wipe it out by her scarf with deep breathing, she said: they pull her when she was hiding behind me; she wanted the protection and they wanting the scandal for us, I tried to protect her, I asked them to kill me than touch her; God she still kid she is in 15 years old playing with kids. God which fears had to live. But they had beaten me; they put their guns at my head……
Everything in front of me
They are raping my bloody daughter’s body …..
I passed out ….couldn’t hear my daughter screaming or my other kids in the other room….when I woke up.. ..my daughter was unconscious …they carried her and took her then gone …
The mother stopped for a while and commented: no body try to know what’s going on even the neighbors..they don’t even try to save us..
I was bleeding..A god caring which save me to live in this miserable life.
My husband got shocked when he returned back to home and found out that our gate was opened. That was unusual ….he passed out and lost his mind; he was laughing and crying at the same time like crazy and keep saying “my money and my honor”
We got threatened by killing if we told anyone but my husband went to tell the police in Ba’akoba and they asked him with cold blood in that police station “do you have evidence” the father screamed “ask the neighbors ; everybody will tell you ; all of them have seen everything”. Their respond was “go away”
Maha was kid in her 15 years old; she disappeared when her wild wedding had been finished, nobody know anything about her but the mother gave us her picture, we did see her ,and wished we didn’t. The father stays at home all the day now, in empty house with his family; he quit talking with anyone; don’t close to his wife and hit his kids without reason epically the girls …screaming from time to time …where is Maha …I want Maha
The family lives on charities now with humiliation feelings and starving and poverty with desire of death.
