ሳዑዲ ባርባሪያ ልጆቿን ትበላለች | እህትማማቾቹ ኒው ዮርክ ወንዝ ውስጥ ተገድለው ተገኙ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 1, 2018

የሳዑዲን አኗኗር ትተዋል፣ እስልምናን ለቅቀዋል ተብለው መገደላቸውን አንዳንድ ዘጋቢዎች አሁን በመጠቆም ላይ ናቸው።

ሳውዲ አረቢያ ተደናግጣለች፤ ኢትዮጵያውያን ክርስቲያኖች የሞት ፍርድ ተሰጥቷቸው ቀናቸውን በመጠባበቅ ላይ ናቸው። ሳዑዲ ባርባሪያ በምስኪኑ የየመን ሕዝብ ላይ የኬሚካል ቦምቦችን እያወረደች መጠቀሟን (ልብ እንበል፤ በዚህ ጉዳይ ላይ የሙስሊሙ ዓለም እስካሁን ፀጥ ብሏል) ሊያጋልጥ የነበረው የሳዑዲ ጋዜጠኛ ካሾጊ እንደ ክትፎ ተቆራርጦ ተገድሏል፣ በትናንትናው ዕለት ደግሞ ኢንዶኔዢያዊቷን የቤት ሠራተኛ በጎራዴ ቆረጧት።

ዓይጥ የራሷን ልጆች የመብላት መጥፎ ልማድ አላትና፡ ምናልባትም ሼክ አላሙዲንንም ገድለዋቸው ሊሆን ይችላል።

የአንዲት አገር ውድቀት በጣም ሊያስደስተን የሚገባ ከሆነ የሳዑዲ ባቢሎንን ውድቀት ከሁሉም በላይ የምንመኘው ነው፤ ታላቁ ጊዜም ተቃርቧል።

Double honor killing?

Muslim sisters found DEAD – duct-taped together had applied for asylum, ran away from home, feared for their lives, begged police not to tell their family where they were

Two sisters were found bound together, dead, floating in the East River in New York City. For the past few days, the police were asking the public for information, trying to find out who they were. I followed the story carefully because young girls dying in this way raise flags. Knowing what I know now, there is no doubt in my mind this was a double honor killing:

Believe nothing the family says.

FIRST PICTURES: SISTERS FOUND DROWNED AND DUCT-TAPED TOGETHER HAD BEEN ORDERED HOME BY THE SAUDI GOVERNMENT A DAY BEFORE THEIR BODIES WASHED UP AND A YEAR AFTER THEY FLED TO A SHELTER AND BEGGED POLICE NOT TO TELL THEIR FAMILY WHERE THEY WERE.

Tala Farea, 16, and Rotana Farea, 22, washed up in the Hudson River on Oct. 24th

A day earlier, their mother got a call ordering the family back to Saudi Arabia

The girls had applied for political asylum, the consulate official told their mot her

Medical examiners have ruled out that the girls could have jumped from the George Washington Bridge in a suicide pact

Because neither body showed visible signs of trauma, that theory – which was peddled by police – is implausible

Rotana was an undergraduate engineering student at George Mason University in Virginia

She dropped out this year and started attending college in New York City

Her younger sister ran away from home and went to live with her in August

Relatives in Saudi Arabia say they were ‘happy’ and the ‘apple of their father’s eye’

The girls ran away last December and begged police who found them not to send them back to their parents

Police have released the first photographs of Saudi Arabian sisters who were found drowned and duct taped together in the Hudson River last week in a plea for information about their mysterious lives and murky deaths.

Their parents, Wafa’a and Abdulsalam, live in Virginia with their brothers who are 18 and 11. Abdulsalam often traveled back to Saudi Arabia for work but no information about his job has emerged.

In August, the family reported 16-year-old Tala missing after she disappeared from Virginia but the search was called off when they learned she had gone to stay with her sister in New York City.

She had recently been awarded a spot at a top private school in Saudi Arabia with a full scholarship but was desperate not to go.

It was the second time they broke off from the family.

In December last year, the pair fled to a shelter in Fairfax. The family reported them both missing.

When officers tracked them down, the sisters begged them not to tell the family where they were. What led to them returning home remains a mystery but police are focusing their investigation on the circumstances surrounding it.

Despite their repeated attempts to live independently from their parents, the family was described as ‘happy’ by Arab media outlets and were the ‘apples of their father’s eye’.

Their mother was naturally protective, but in no way was their household problematic for them to run away,’ they told Arab News.

They said the family was happy with Tala living with her sister who she missed dearl when she left Virginia.

Tala was upset for quite some time after her sister decided to continue her studies in NYC. Yes, it did cause a problem for the family as the mother had to file a missing case report to the police over her daughter’s disappearance, but the search was called off later when they found Tala was with her sister, Rotana.

The police told their mother that since her younger daughter was safe with an adult, it’s safe to call off the search.’

The girls only ever used Snapchat, they said, and communicated with their relatives in Saudi Arabia through it.

They were private and kept to themselves most of the time, but we communicated mostly via Snapchat and it wasn’t a surprise to any of us that they wouldn’t have any accounts on other social media apps,’ the unnamed family member said.

They were calm and always polite. All families have problems. What kind of sibling relationship would it be without fights every now and then?

But that didn’t push them to the edge as the Western media is portraying,’ they added.

The NYPD has not ruled anything out.

Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said yesterday: ‘We are looking at all clues in their past life.’

The family in Virginia is yet to speak out about their disappearance despite DailyMail.com’s repeated attempts to contact their representative.

On October 23, the girls’ mother Wafa’a received a phone call from an official at the Saudi Arabian consulate who ordered the entire family to return to their home country. It was in response to an application by the two sisters for political asylum in the United States.

Police have ruled out that the pair jumped from the George Washington Bridge in a suicide pact, a theory that was initially pushed out by police, because neither body had visible signs of trauma.

It is not known how long they were dead before they were found but police struggled to identify them for days.

Rather than live on campus like many of her classmates, Rotana traveled back to her home in Falls Church, Virginia where she lived with her mother, brother and Tala.

Rotana attended classes at the Volgenau School of Engineering and sources say she planned to major in bio-engineering when she returned this fall.

But the University told DailyMail.com that Rotana never returned in August to complete her education.

Problems arose for Rotana when she learned her whole family would have to return to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

A source at the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, DC told DailyMail.com Rotana’s sister Tala had won a full scholarship to study at Dar Al-Fikr, a top private school in Jeddah.

Tala had briefly studied in 2017 at Fairfax High School, close to George Mason University. Rotana and Tala’s mother contacted The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on August 24 after Tala went missing from home.

She then called off the search after learning Tala was with Rotana in New York.

She also told authorities the pair were applying for asylum in the US to avoid returning to Jeddah.

Family members told Arab News that the two sisters had only lost contact with their mother a week ago.

They are insisting that the pair did not commit suicide and are waiting to find out the cause of death from the Chief Medical Examiner, which has not yet released findings from the autopsies.
