#2 About 1990, plus or minus a year, I met Kathy Gariety before she left for Yemen. The Woman's Missionary Union in Wisconsin (now called Baptist Women) held a "fabric shower" for her so she could make the loose clothing acceptable to her Muslim neighbors in Jibla. She was going to be business manager for the hospital. She asked for prayer because she had been warned that Yemeni businessmen might refuse to do business with a woman. The mission board believed Gariety was the right person for the job. She must have overcome the merchants' hostility, because she served the hospital for about 13 years before her murder.

When the missionaries were murdered, the local women and many men stood up, demanding justice for the hospital staff who had delivered their babies and comforted them in emergencies.

#4 Too bad they had a firing squad shoot him. Hanging him in a public square for a week or two would have been a lot more effective in telling the rest of the yahoos that their behavior won't be tolerated. Nothing like seeing (and smelling) the "reward" such behavior brings to send the message home.
