"What some observers are calling a pogrom took place near Ramallah, West Bank, on the night of September 3-4. That's when 15 Muslim youths from one village, Dair Jarir, rampaged against Taybeh, a neighboring all-Christian village of 1,500 people. "The reason for the assault? A Muslim woman from Dair Jarir, Hiyam Ajaj, 23, fell in love with her Christian boss, Mehdi Khouriyye, owner of a tailor shop in Taybeh. The couple maintained a clandestine two-year affair and she became pregnant in about March 2005. When her family members learned of her condition, they murdered her. That was on about September 1; unsatisfied even with this "honor killing" ? for Islamic law strictly forbids non-Muslim males to have sexual relations with Muslim females ? the Ajaj men... broke into houses and stole furniture...electrical appliances. ... The assailants vandalized cars, looted extensively, and destroyed a statue of the Virgin Mary.
