Paging all liberals/feminists: this is what to expect when you implement Sharia law and radical Islam.
Three female lawyers have reportedly been executed by Islamic State militants as the UN warns that educated women in Iraq are especially at risk.
Today, the UN human rights office condemned numerous executions of civilians in the country by ISIS and said the jihadist group is showing a ‘monstrous disregard for human life’.
ISIS, which controls large swathes of territory in Iraq and in neighbouring war-ravaged Syria, last week published pictures of the crucifixions of two men accused of being bandits, and of a woman being stoned to death, allegedly for adultery.
Other women have also reportedly been executed recently in ISIS-controlled areas, including Mosul, UN spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said.
‘Educated, professional women, particularly women who have run as candidates in elections for public office, seem to be particularly at risk,’ she said.
‘In just the first two weeks of this year, reports indicate that three female lawyers were executed.’
A number of other groups are also targeted by the jihadists, Shamdasani said, referring to ‘the ruthless murder of two men, who were thrown off the top of a building after having been accused of homosexual acts by a so-called court in Mosul’.
ISIS released a video showing the two men being thrown off the top of a tower block in Raqqa, Syria, for being gay.
