Lefty “feminists” spend a lot of time talking about “objectifying” women. Islam reminds us of what that really means. Right down to the price tags.
The Islamic State is great if you’re a Sunni Muslim male. If you’re a non-Muslim woman, it’s hell on earth. But that’s true of Islam.
“[W]omen and children who refused to convert were being allotted to ISIL fighters or were being trafficked … in markets in Mosul and to Raqqa in Syria,” according to the UN report. “Married women who converted were told by ISIL that their previous marriages were not recognised in Islamic law and that they, as well as unmarried women who converted, would be given to ISIL fighters as wives.”
Nothing to do with Islam. Except it has everything to do with Islam.
It’s Islamic law that invalidates the previous marriages of captured non-Muslim women allowing Islamic Jihadists to rape them. That’s how Mohammed and his gang of thugs did it.
The FP story leaves out a key phrase from the UN report. “To be sold as sex slaves (‘malak yamiin’).” Malak Yamiin means that which your right hand possesses.
It comes from the Koran. “Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess” (Koran 4:24). Media outlets, including Vice, have consulted various Islamic scholars who told them that ISIS is violating Sharia by doing so. It isn’t. It’s following Islamic law, plain and simple.
A market for the sale of abducted women was set up in the al-Quds neighborhood of Mosul.
“Women and girls are brought with price tags for the buyers to choose and negotiate the sale,” according to the report.
The West has consciously forgotten that slavery in the Muslim lingered on into recent times. The Saudis only officially banned it in the 1960s under pressure from JFK.
ISIS is just bringing back another Muslim tradition that the infidel West forced it to abandon.
“The buyers were said to be mostly youth from the local communities. Apparently ISIL was ‘selling’ these Yezidi women to the youth as a means of inducing them to join their ranks.”
Giving away captured women as an incentive was one of the ways that Mohammed recruited his band of murderers and rapists.
“The array of violations and abuses perpetrated by ISIL and associated armed groups is staggering, and many of their acts may amount to war crimes or crimes against humanity,” the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, said in a statement accompanying the report’s release.
Zeid urged the Iraqi government to consider joining the International Criminal Court in order to provide the tribunal’s prosecutor with the authority to investigate and prosecute crimes in Iraq by perpetrators on either side of the conflict.
And once that happens, what will the ICC do to bring ISIS to justice? Write him an angry letter? The UN is barely managing to try some perps from genocides that happened generations ago.
I’m sure the Caliph of the Islamic State is shaking in his boots.
