full original article: ISIS Rapes Women Toward Allah
“Women sold as slaves. Women beaten in the streets. Women raped for sport. Girls as young as 8 or 9 years old forced into marriages with strangers, and bound to sexual servitude.
The reports of the atrocities perpetrated by the Islamic State against girls and women – most of them Yazidi – seem as unending as they are despicable and senseless. But the latest may yet be the most depraved: women and girls being raped repeatedly as a way to “make” them Muslim.
According to a CNN report, a new directive from ISIS’s self-appointed caliph, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, instructs men to rape the women that they capture. A woman who is raped 10 times, it says, will then become a Muslim.
That this represents an extraordinary manipulation of Islamic law, or sharia, seems to be of no concern to ISIS soldiers despite their professed devotion to upholding and imposing those very laws. And it presages even greater danger for the girls than the rape itself. One Yazidi woman, identified only as “Noor,” told CNN that the soldier to whom she was enslaved raped her and then allowed 11 others to do the same, meaning that she was in fact twice raped after “becoming” Muslim.
But a Muslim woman who is raped is guilty of adultery according to sharia, and is a dishonor to her family and her tribe. Their only redemption is to kill her – a so-called honor killing. Will this new directive then allow ISIS members to legitimize the murders of Yazidi women and young girls who – unlike Yazidi men – have largely been allowed to live so long as they remain concubines and slaves to ISIS warriors? Or is it simply a new form of Islamic conquest, legitimizing rape while expanding the Muslim population? Or something else?
Other victims have also said they were told their rapes were a form of worship, encouraged in the Quran. Indeed, in an extensive investigation, the New York Times described a “theology of rape,” in which militants often pray before molesting their victims. One victim, a 12-year-old Yazidi girl, told the Times: “He said that by raping me he is drawing closer to god.”
“…Such tactics might lead those otherwise repelled by the idea of raping helpless girls to believe that such depravities are not only sanctioned by their religion, but holy. And if raping a girl ten times will bring her to Islam, then indeed each rapist becomes, in this perverted vision, not her diabolus but her savior.”
“…Such is the evil cunning of the Islamic State and its leadership: with a single weapon – rape – they penetrate not just the bodies of young women, but, too, the hearts and minds of men. Not only are 99 virgins waiting for you in Heaven, but if you join us, you can rape your way across the Levant.
And with its powerful propaganda machines, it is possible that the “holy rape” fable could even help recruit more young Muslim women from the West, urging them to join the jihad in Syria and, in their already-distorted thinking, to give their bodies to the militants. It will make them “more holy.” It will bring the soldiers closer to Allah in their strife….”
*They are only taught to rape and murder and expect 72 virgins in heaven for such virtuous behavior, not 99 virgins. But let’s praise Obama and other Western leaders for importing a fifth column of Syrian refugees, who we are supposed to believe will peacefully assimilate into Western cultures… Or better yet, let’s understand why Obama acts like a Manchurian Candidate who seems to be destroying America from within:
