Peace Corps Volunteers: Rape & Murder~A Shameful Story

How Far Indeed!
Some time ago there was a report that over one thousand Peace Corps volunteers had been raped in the countries they served in. Some of the women finally spoke out, and ABC has reported in detail on their story, including the murder of one young woman.

The family of 24-year old Peace Corps volunteer, Kate Puzey, says agency personnel set her up to be murdered by revealing her role in the dismissal of an employee she accused of sexually abusing children at a school in the African country of Benin. She was found with her throat slit.

There is so much more. Please go to the ABC site, watch the videos and read the stories. If you are American, please don't send your daughters to the Peace Corps!

Read the news--places like Africa, Bangladesh, Haiti and the Middle-East are a clear danger to  All Women. Even the activists that rush to the aid of the poor Palestinians are finding that they are not exempt from abuse. And what are they told? Like in the Peace Corps--keep quiet or it will hurt the cause. Any country that is predominantly Muslim is a terrible risk for ALL Women!

This is a crime against women and it is disgusting that any organization would turn their backs on such actions. By covering for these barbarians it encourages more of the same. Isn't is time that the people of the free world stop giving money to countries who condone the rape and abuse those who come to help them?

The cover up of rapes has been going on for years. In this report some of the women were brave enough to speak up.

Peace Corps Volunteers Tell Their Story of Rape

Listen to the stories, they tell of cover-up and a concentrated effort to put the blame on the girls.Why would anyone tell a girl who had been raped to make a list of what she had done wrong? This next clip is the story of a woman, now a Harvard Professor who was raped  over twenty years ago and "blamed" by the Peace Corps. No sympathy--no help.

By saying PEACE CORPS do you mean those soldiers in Afghanistan or Iraq ?

No, the Peace Corps are volunteers who travel to underdeveloped nations to try and help in areas of education, sanitation, building, etc. The work is generally related to social and economic development. Here is a link:

Israel, Jerusalem, Judaism, Zionism, Middle East, Aliyah, Conversion, and everything else that pops up
