Asrar Al-Qabandi – أسرار القبندي

16 Jan 2010  4 Comments

On January 14, 1991, Asrar Al-Qabandi was murdered. She was shot five times – four bullets to her chest and the fifth bullet between her eyes, and her head sliced in two by an axe as her body dumped in front of her family’s home by the Iraqi’s. This was the fate of one of the braveset women of Kuwait… of the world. She saved hundreds of Kuwaiti’s during the Gulf War, and came back to Kuwait to save more lives even though she knew the Iraqi’s had found out what she had done. This woman has been dead exactly 19 years. And this is the least we can do in saluting the woman who had died saving lives.

I recieved the above as a message yesterday and thought it would only be fitting we remember and recognize Asrar Al-Qabandi’s amazing feats and life saving actions.

Some of her other victories include smuggling weapons from Basra to Kuwait, money and more weapons from Saudi Arabia, single-handedly destroying the monitored telephones and communications set up by the Iraqis, providing targeted Kuwaitis with new ID’s to protect them from harm, providing foreign families with food and money, and taking care of 65 foreign hostages, risking a guaranteed execution.

Read this article to refresh your memory on some of the other stuff Asrar Al-Qabandi had accomplished in this time of vain and anguish.
