There are no words to describe what happened to Atwar Bahjat. Evil is simply not adequate.
Read the account of her execution at the hands of jihadists.
Greyhawk spoke the truth when he ended his post with this:
In truth, it represents a depth of depravity achieved over centuries. From the description, her killers hadn’t just conceived or improvised their method execution on the spot – they seem to have been well practiced. But such is the nature of the enemy in this war, and perhaps this is their most sacred and well honed knowledge: if a brutality can be inflicted that exceeds all human ability to comprehend, the humans will find a way to deny it.
Or excuse it.
Or simply look the other way.
Please don’t look the other way.
