The word unbelievable is often overused, but this is really hard to fathom. Where are the N.O.W., the “peaceful muslims”, Amnesty Intl, and people worried about their Black sisters? Then again, this is thousands of miles away, doesn’t get you any political points, and blah ...blah ...blah.

the moment these families take up arms and fight back to rescue their daughters will be the moment the UN and co will suddenly care enough to condemn them, the families not the terrorists
