Al-Jazeera : Mosul governer demand official apology from the Amerikkan troops for what they did to the Iraqi school girls yesterday
US soldiers board bus carrying college girls in Mosul and make them strip, baring their heads and breasts.
In a dispatch posted at 11:40pm Mecca time Friday night, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a few days ago US troops in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul stopped a bus carrying students at the local Women Teachers Training Institute and forced the young women at gunpoint to uncover their heads and bare their breasts.
The Mosul correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a US patrol halted a bus belonging to the Central Teachers Training Institute in Mosul as it was on its way to the institution at 7:30am local time. American male soldiers accompanied by a number of US women troops boarded the bus and ordered the driver to get out of the vehicle that had a capacity of 44 passengers.
The Americans then tied up the driver and threw him on the ground. Next, as the American troops trained their guns on the women, one of the Americans, speaking broken Arabic, ordered them to open their shirts and expose their breasts. The American soldiers also demanded that they take off their head coverings and expose their heads and hair.
One of the women students – who has since decided to quit the school – later spoke to the Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent about the incident. She recounted that they were all shocked by the soldiers’ order and tried to scream for help as loudly as they could, calling "Help, save our honor! God is greatest! Help, save our dignity! God is greatest!" Their screams and weeping only made the Americans laugh and make fun of them. One of the soldiers yelled at them and pointed his gun over their heads and they were forced to uncover their heads and bare their breasts.
The woman said that meanwhile, their screams had been heard by people in the area who ran to get the principal of the Teachers Institute. She immediately hurried to the scene along with the local Director of Education, a crowd of local men, and some of the puppet police. The Americans then got down out of the bus, as many of the women inside passed out unconscious from the shock and humiliation.
The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent spoke with Shaykh Duwwas ash-Shamari, one of the tribal chiefs in the Mosul area and he confirmed the story. He said it was true and that he had confirmed it with one of the women who had been aboard the bus too. He said that the Americans had indeed committed the outrage, even though the puppet governor of Mosul and some other local puppet officials denied the reports claiming that they had to do so in order to avoid stirring up the whole city’s population.
The Iraqi Resistance responded to the reports that same day by shelling four US military headquarters in Mosul, destroying two Humvees.
One of the women teachers in the Institute told Mafkarat al-Islam that a large number of the students had quit the program after the humiliating outrage. Meanwhile, several local journalists who work for various news agencies also learned of the incident from local people and relatives of the women but were unwilling to report it publicly.
One of the women students told Mafkarat al-Islam that she was determined to send a letter about the crime to Arab and Islamic states appealing to them to take heed from what was going on in Iraq for the sake of the future. She said wants them to be aware of what America’s talk of freedom and democracy really means. She wants them to think about what can happen to "free" women in the shadow of "American democracy."

May Allah give patience to our sisters. And give victory to the oppressed Muslims around the world. Ameen.
I am no longer shocked by these disgusting acts by the USA. Their true face showed a long time ago."Man rejoices as long as the nights continue to pass by,
Yet, he too, as they vanish gradually perishes away. "

I read this thread and for once did not know what to say. Allaah is with the oppressed brother. By His will they will have victory. There is no barrier between the supplication of an oppressed person (Muslim or non-Muslim) and Allaah subhanaahu wa ta'aala. We must fear oppressing people for that matter whether they are in or out of Islam.
Ameen to ur du'aa

US official denies Mosul bus incident
Truth about Iraqis
March 4, 2006
According to the Iraqirabita.org website, on Sunday February 26, a bus carrying 40 girls enrolled in a Teachers institute, was stopped by several US armored vehicles.
The driver was made to exit the bus and sit on the ground.
One US female soldier accompanied by a male soldier boarded the bus and, according to the girls, told them to remove their head covering veils.
The female soldier, who is said to speak some Arabic, then unbuttoned her shirt and revealed her breasts to the girls who were astounded. She then ordered them to show her their breasts.
(طلعوا ديوس!), she is reported to have said, at which point the girls began to scream.
The girls were detained for one hour until the principal/director of the institute contacted the authorities and the girls were released.
Several Iraqi television stations interviewed the girls after the alleged incident, but were not allowed to air the interviews, said the website.
A follow-up article by Iraqirabita.org interviewed Shatha Ma'youf, assistant principal at the institute. She said that the incident occured on Sunday at 1:45pm as the bus was headed to the Islah Al Zira'ii district in Mosul.
An Aljazeera crew interviewed a US spokesperson in Dubai who denied the whole incident and said it was yet another rumor to incite hatred against US forces.
Mosul residents have been debating whether such an incident could have happened.
[It is likely we will hear more of this in the days to come]
The girls were interviewed yesterday on Al-Jazeera
