This video moved me to tears. This little but very articulate Yemeni girl explained her family plight and showed enough courage to escape the planned marriage situation

Also "planned marriage situation" would be Arranged Marriage, but this is Forced Marriage. Difference.

I am not the emotional type, when I see videos like this I instantly think propaganda.

And guess what the video was produced by and organization called Memri now why is that important?

Because its run by a former Israeli intelligence officer, so the next question is what did Yemen do to piss off the west?

Unbelievable, that an 11 year old would even have to deal with this. Stop the world...I want to get off.

You mean besides sponsor terrorist training camps? You have a point, but that isn't to say this doesn't occur.


This little but very articulate Yemeni girl


Maybe, TOO articulate? (i.e. scripted)...so....

Still, just a while back, we were all reading about two Arab girls killed for DANCING....because doing so brought dishonor to their family. Seriously? So this really isn't shocking if real.

Yeah this happens regularly with out people so much as batting an eyelash, so the question is WHY now?

Well, I'd wager this really isn't going to be all over mainstream media.
