"They" crucify little girls, dont they...

Daphne Anson's Blog is serious, respected and I trust her. She does not do vulgar sensationalism. She wrote an open letter to some crass Jew-hating organism, disguised as a church. I too have reported on this despicable incitement to Jew-hatred here.

But in  her open letter Daphne reported  a fact that has prevented me from sleeping ever since I read it. If it was not on Daphne's blog,  I would have dismissed it, even though I could not delete the image from my mind:

A little girl, literally crucified??!! Now? In 2013/14? 

I asked a  trusted friend, owner of  the most finely tuned  bullshit detector of our times, if he thought this could really be true. This friend of mine  doesn't do emotionalism, he deals in soberly  documented reality. His answer was simple and minimalist:


What??? "they"  crucify little girls?

"Yes !" 

From Daphne's blog:
The Facebook page of the Emmaus Group explains:
Child “crucified” in Syria.
The image ... shows a very young girl tied to railings in a crucifixion style position and left until dead. The image was sent to us via facebook from a contact in Syria. The girl’s crime, as if there could be one? Her parents were Christians. She was tied up and made to watch her parents being killed then left. This evil act was perpetrated by Syrian rebels. The same rebels the West continues to support financially, with training and technology and supposedly, “non lethal hardware.”\
Sadly this practice is not new. Christian children have been crucified in Iraq in an attempt to terrify their parents and the Christian population in general. See link...

"...The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;

Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;

Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.

For nothing now can ever come to any good." 

(W.H. Auden)
