Vitamin d3 Two dozen girls are moving half-heartedly on the dance floor, vitamin d3 lit up by flashing disco lights. Vitamin d3 They are dessed in tight jeans, vitamin d3 low-cut tops and knee-high boots, vitamin d3 but the girls' make-up can't disguise the fact that most are in their mid-teens. Vitamin d3 It's a strange sight in a conservative Muslim country, vitamin d3 but this is the sex business, vitamin d3 and it's booming as a result of the war in Iraq. Backstage, vitamin d3 the manager sits in his leather chair, vitamin d3 doing business. Vitamin d3 A Saudi client is quoted $500 for one of the girls. Vitamin d3 Eventually he beats it down to $300. Vitamin d3 (cut to) "But these girls are not just providing the floor show - they have paid to be here, vitamin d3 and they need to pick up a client, vitamin d3 or they'll lose money. Vitamin d3 If successful, vitamin d3 they'll earn about $60, vitamin d3 equivalent to a month's wages in a factory. There are more than a million Iraqi refugees in Syria, vitamin d3 many are women whose husbands or fathers have been killed. Vitamin d3 Banned from working legally, vitamin d3 they have few options outside the sex trade. Vitamin d3 No one knows how many end up as prostitutes, vitamin d3 but Hana Ibrahim, vitamin d3 founder of the Iraqi women's group Women's Will, vitamin d3 puts the figure at 50, vitamin d3000.

Vitamin d3 Millions of Shias go there every year, vitamin d3 because of the shrine of the prophet Mohamed's granddaughter. Vitamin d3 "I came to Syria after my husband was killed, vitamin d3 leaving me with two children, vitamin d3" Fatima tells me. Vitamin d3 "My aunt asked me to join her here, vitamin d3 and my brothers pressured me to go." She didn't realise the work her aunt did, vitamin d3 and she would be forced to take up, vitamin d3 until she arrived. Fatima is in her mid-20s, vitamin d3 but campaigners say the number of Iraqi children working as prostitutes is high. Vitamin d3 Bassam al-Kadi of Syrian Women Observatory says: "Some have been sexually abused in Iraq, vitamin d3 but others are being prostituted by fathers and uncles who bring them here under the pretext of protecting them. Vitamin d3 They are virgins, vitamin d3 and they are brought here like an investment and exploited in a very ugly way."

Vitamin d3 " "Of course, vitamin d3 we are very well aware of how historically war generates prostitution, vitamin d3 abuse and exploitation of women and children under many guises. Vitamin d3 Whether it be organised brothels in “R&R” , vitamin d3or a systematic ‘ethnic cleanse’ combined with the intended and complete degradation of specific cultures as we have seen in Kosovo and the DR Congo (to name but a few) or now, vitamin d3 the 20th century opportunist “sex tourist”- every ready to exploit with their dripping privilege and total disregard for human suffering. Vitamin d3 It just never ends. Especially if it is female suffering - that is. When desperation strikes, vitamin d3 the men with their money will be at hand in an instant, vitamin d3 helping impoverished women to feed themselves and their families - but only if you suck my cock - let me and my mates gang rape you - I don’t give my dollars away for free…you know." http://sparklematrix.wordpress.com/
