So who are the buyers?

And what will the apologists for Islam do about this?   When any curious Infidel may spend a little time on google, and discover that yes, indeed, Mohammed – that “excellent example of conduct” – raped captive women (Rayhana, Safiyya) and stuffed them into his harem to use as sex slaves – I refuse to call them his “wives”, for they had no choice whatsoever and he had murdered their husbands, fathers, brothers and sold their sisters and cousins and other female kin to be sex slaves – and that he and his men seized and then traded non-Muslim girls, women and boys as if they were things, to be used and abused for fun and profit.  Islam: the “religion” of kidnapping, rape, and sex-slavery, whose pious followers are taught and feel entitled to treat non-Muslims – for no other ‘reason’ than that they are not Muslim and so long as they remain not-Muslim – as prey animals.  


Raymond Ibrahim: Muhammad and Islam’s Sex SlavesRaymond Ibrahim: Muhammad and Islam’s Sex Slaves

[Via FrontPage Magazine] Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities. According to an October 13 report in the Telegraph, Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold [ /Comment]Continue Reading »

A report by one Richard Spencer, that appeared just the other day in the UK Telegraph The “theology” of sex slavery, as propounded by those very, very pious and orthodox Muslims of the Islamic State.

“Thousands of Yazidi Women sold as Sex Slaves “for theological reasons” Says Isil”.

‘Article in Islamic State’s English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits selling Yazidi women into sex slavery, but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

“Early Islam”.  The example of Mohammed.  Mohammed took slaves, traded in slaves, kept and had sex with slaves (Mary the Copt); Mohammed took and raped both Rayhana and Safiyya just after having attacked and destroyed their communities.  Mohammed had Safiyya’s husband, Kinana of Khaybar, murdered; on the evening of that very same day, Mohammed took Safiyya to his tent and raped her.  The sexual use of female captives is right there in the Quran itself, which refers to them as “that which your right hands possess” – “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou has paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand posesseth, of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” [33:50]. “If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear  you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own…”[4:3].  There is a similar verse [4:24] that explains that the sexual use of a captive non-Muslim woman who was married when captured is permissible; in other words, in Islam, seizing and raping another man’s wife and taking and keeping her as a concubine is just fine and dandy so long as she’s the wife of an infidel man who has been attacked in Jihad – “Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess“…[and in the Yusuf Ali translation, this English convert to Islam adds a footnote – “Whom your right hands possess, i.e. captives in a Jihad..”]  – CM

“Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold them into sex slavery.

Question: to whom have they been sold?  Who are the buyers? And a further question: what of the women and girls of the Iraqi Christian community?  if the thoroughly-Islamic jihadis of Boko Haram felt entitled to seize, kidnap, rape and enslave – and sell to other mohammedan mobsters – 200 Christian schoolgirls in Nigeria, then one must assume that Islamic State, equally versed in and to-the-letter obeying the source texts of Islam, equally proudly-orthodox, defiantly reviving the institution of slavery (sacralised for all Muslims for all time, by the example of Mohammed the slave-raider and slave-trader and rapist of sex-slaves), would feel just as entitled to enslave captured Christian women, as to enslave Yazidi women.  – CM

‘A new article in the Islamic State English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits the practice but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

Which, to repeat, are based on the sayings and deeds of Mohammed, the founder of Islam, and the sayings and deeds of his  so-called “Companions”, his partners in crime. -  CM

“After capture the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Sharia amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated”, the article says.

Note well: according to the Sharia.  Let no-one be deceived by the numerous puff-pieces about Sharia, full of obfuscations, half-truths, and brazen falsehoods, that have appeared in the media in western countries, of late. This enslavement of women, in Iraq, by Islamic State, is fully in accord with the Sharia.  Treating human beings like cattle; like things.  Islam induces a psychopathic or sociopathic state of mind amongst its most devout adherents; erasing empathy and feeding malignant narcissism. – CM

‘It says there is a difference between women from Muslim sects the jihadists regard as heretical, who can be considered as “apostates”, and the so-called mushrikin – polytheists and pagans.

It is worth remembering that although Islam sometimes refers to Christians as “people of the book”, distinct from “pagans” or “polytheists”,  there is also a very strong tradition within Islam of viewing Christians too as polytheists, because of the doctrine of the Trinity, and because Christians assert that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God.  Muslims accuse Christians of “shirk” – assigning “partners” to allah – and in orthodox Islam “shirk” is regarded as the very worst imaginable crime, worse than murder. – CM

“Their women could be enslaved, unlike female apostates”.

Apostates, presumably, must be killed; that is the orthodox teaching of Islam, as stated in the Bukhari Hadith – “If anyone changes his religion, kill him”. – CM

‘The women were seized when the group swept across parts of northern Iraq in early August.

‘When the jihadists attacked areas occupied by Yazidis, the West’s attention focused on the tens of thousands of refugees who crowded onto the barren hills of nearby Mount Sinjar, before they were rescued by Kurdish fighters.

Kurds who are themselves Sunni Muslims, for the most part, but somewhat less devout, perhaps slightly less strictly and purely sharia-compliant, than the jihadists of Islamic State. – CM

‘But thousands more were surrounded and captured in nearby towns and villages.

‘The article does not specify that they are to be used as sex slaves, but later on equates them with “concubines”.

A distinction without a difference, in this particular instance.  These women and girls – and many of the girls thus used and abused might well be very young, as young as nine or ten or twelve, for let us not forget, the Islamic State jihadis know well that Aisha was only nine when bedded by Mohammed and that therefore females as young as nine are Islamically-legal – have been taken from their families, kidnapped, and raped, and imprisoned, and sold like cattle. This is not like the case of a woman who consents – without being under compulsion –  to become a concubine or “mistress”; this is about repeated sadistic sexual abuse of women and girls against their will.  Abuse that is commanded and sacralised by the core texts of Islam and the example of Mohammed.  - CM

‘The Islamic State newsletter, released online at the weekend, also contains an article by John Cantile, a British journalist being held hostage, in which he says he fears he will soon be killed like his four fellow hostages, James Foley, Steven Sotloff, David Haines and Alan Henning.

But most of it is devoted to tehological justifications for Islamic State behaviour, citing early clerics and the practices of the Prophet Mohammed (sic: the so-called “prophet” Mohammed - CM) and his Companions duirng the early years of Islamic expansion.

Of violent Muslim invasions of and attacks upon non-Muslim peoples and territories. – CM

“The enslaved Yazidi families are now sold by the Islamic State soldiers as the mushrikin were sold by the Companions before them”, the article, entitled “The Revival of Slavery Before the Hour”, says.

Nota bene: Slavery – Muslim enslavement of non-Muslims –  is implicitly represented here as something good, something that Muslims ought not to have allowed to lapse. – CM

“It says that “well-known” rules are observed, including not separating mothers from their children – something which may account for the number of teenage girls being used in this way, according to their families.

It says that twenty percent of the women are being taken in this way, in accordance with rules demanding a fifth of property captured in war to be handed over as tax.

So the other eighty percent of captured women who are not being sold on the open market – strictly amongst the Ummah (one wonders how many of those thus sold may end up in the harems of the Abominable House of Saud, or in equally abominable Qatar, or abominable Dubai, behind closed doors? ) are being kept for the personal use of those vile mohammedan mobsters who dragged them away from their families and raped them? – CM

‘The women are also given the chance to convert to Islam”.

Oh, wonderful ::sarc:: And they remain slaves, raped and abused, treated like things, just the same.  It is difficult to read this stuff without feeling a strong inclination to vomit.  Or without wishing that, just once, the earth would split open beneath one or more of the Islamothugs, and swallow them up. – CM

This large-scale enslavement of mushrik families is probably the first since the abandonment of this sharia law”, the article says.

And why was it abandoned?  Because, in the 19th and 20th centuries, a number of powerful non-Muslim countries applied massive pressure to Muslim states, forcing them to at least nominally outlaw the practice (which they did with extreme reluctance). There was never any anti-slavery movement from within Islam; Muslims could never see anything wrong with kidnapping and enslaving people (primarily non-Muslims; but black Muslims have in large numbers been enslaved, by Arab Muslims who see themselves as having a right to lord it over those inferior – because black – Muslims: see Darfur, and Mauritania) to use  as soldiers, or sex-slaves, or for any other kind of work, because.. Mohammed did it, mohammed took and traded in slaves and raped and enslaved captive women; and whatever mohammed did is – in Muslim eyes – forever to be admired and, if possible, practised. – CM

“The only other known case – albeit much smaller – is that of the enslavement of Christian women and children of the Philippines and Nigeria, by the mujahadeen there”.

Anyone familiar with the history of Islam, the history of Jihad, knows that Christian women and girls and boys were seized and enslaved in huge numbers by Muslims.  As were also black Africans – a famous recent example being Saint Josephina Bakhita, now patron Saint of the Sudan, who was snatched from her non-Muslim Darfuri family by Muslim slave raiders, in the late 19th century, and endured years of suffering as the slave of cruel Muslim masters, until bought by an Italian diplomat, taken to Italy, and set free, upon which she became a Catholic nun, living a long and holy life and dying in 1947 – and Hindu and Buddhist women and children during the Muslim invasions of India.

The “Telegraph” permitted Comments upon the article, and many know exactly what Islam is all about.  The first comment up, one “ninefingers 62”, observed sarcastically, “Once again I would like someone to remind me why it is that the apologists for Islam say that it is a religion of peace that also respects other faiths”. He got 339 upclicks, so one must assume there are 339 other people who agree with him.

Blobby 2010 was similarly astute – “So who is buying them?  We have people who sit on the news 24 sofas who urge us to talk to these people and who say this has nothing to do with Islam.  It seems people who were actually born into the religion would disagree, and not only that, there seems to be lots of them.”

And Owen Morgan, quoting the article “The women are also given the chance to convert to Islam”, remarked, sardonically, “How thoughtful. Be enslaved, or volunteer for slavery”.
