Islamic State Issues Fatwa On How To Properly Rape Enslaved Women, Girls

Far from trying to conceal the practice, ISIS has boasted about it and established a department of "war spoils" to manage slavery.

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused the Islamic State of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12.

Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when "owners" of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females.

The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State's previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said. It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the sexual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

The fatwa was among a huge trove of documents captured by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid targeting a top Islamic State official in Syria in May. Reuters has reviewed some of the documents, which have not been previously published.

Among the religious rulings are bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as "part of a joint ownership."

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused the Islamic State of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq. Many have been given to fighters as a reward or sold as sex slaves.

Far from trying to conceal the practice, Islamic State has boasted about it and established a department of "war spoils" to manage slavery. Reuters reported on the existence of the department on Monday.

In an April report, Human Rights Watch interviewed 20 female escapees who recounted how Islamic State fighters separated young women and girls from men and boys and older women. They were moved "in an organized and methodical fashion to various places in Iraq and Syria." They were then sold or given as gifts and repeatedly raped or subjected to sexual violence.

DOS AND DON'TS

Fatwa No. 64, dated Jan. 29, 2015, and issued by Islamic State's Committee of Research and Fatwas, appears to codify sexual relations between IS fighters and their female captives for the first time, going further than a pamphlet issued by the group in 2014 on how to treat slaves.

The fatwa starts with a question: "Some of the brothers have committed violations in the matter of the treatment of the female slaves. These violations are not permitted by Sharia law because these rules have not been dealt with in ages. Are there any warnings pertaining to this matter?"

It then lists 15 injunctions, which in some instances go into explicit detail. For example:

"If the owner of a female captive, who has a daughter suitable for intercourse, has sexual relations with the latter, he is not permitted to have intercourse with her mother and she is permanently off limits to him. Should he have intercourse with her mother then he is not permitted to have intercourse with her daughter and she is to be off limits to him."

Islamic State's sexual exploitation of female captives has been well documented, but a leading IS expert at Princeton University, Cole Bunzel, who has reviewed many of the group's writings, said the fatwa went beyond what has previously been published by the militants on how to treat female slaves.

"It reveals the actual concerns of IS slave owners," he said in an email.

Still, he cautioned that not "everything dealt with in the fatwa is indicative of a relevant violation. It doesn't mean father and son were necessarily sharing a girl. They're at least being 'warned' not to. But I bet some of these violations were being committed."

The fatwa also instructs owners of female slaves to "show compassion towards her, be kind to her, not humiliate her, and not assign her work she is unable to perform." An owner should also not sell her to an individual whom he knows will mistreat her.

Professor Abdel Fattah Alawari, dean of Islamic Theology at Al-Azhar University, a 1,000-year-old Egyptian center for Islamic learning, said Islamic State "has nothing to do with Islam" and was deliberately misreading centuries-old verses and sayings that were originally designed to end, rather than encourage, slavery.

"Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around," he said. "Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman, and Persian civilizations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves. So Islam found this abhorrent practice and worked to gradually remove it.”

In September 2014 more than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world issued an open letter to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi refuting the group's religious arguments to justify many of its actions. The scholars noted that the "reintroduction of slavery is forbidden in Islam."

What is it when a man sees a woman? He loses his damn mind. Every woman on this planet is another woman's daughter. Enslavement of 12 years old girls, enslavement period. Saudi Arabia executed 47 people. What gives people the right to execute other people's children; that's all we all are. The men of the world are beyond monsters/insane. There's no words for these things called men. Penises give these fuckers the right of passage to do people any damn way they please. They're only passing through, just like the rest of us. One day, assholes, your time will be up, and good riddance to the entire lot of you. If an abortion clinic should have come into play, it should have come into play upon everyone of you; don't give a damn what your man-made title is. You came here via fornication just like everything breathing; you'll end up dead just like everything breathing. May your time come soon, so that many of US can continue breathing without your asinine slaughtering inteference.

Did "Islamic scholars from around the world" issue such a letter when they were taking Sudanese women and girls as "slaves" when they were trying to commit genocide against the Sudanese people?  

Have they been "noting" that "re-introduction of slavery is against Islamic law" all this time that Arab/Islamic countries have been kidnapping little boys and little girls to traffic in sex slavery?  What have they had to say about Mauritania, where Black people are still being held as slaves? Did this letter mention anything of the foreign women lured by promises of work as domestics, being held in Islamic nations as slaves?

I could take this effort by them serious if they included ALL people being held against their will in sex or domestic slavery by ANY or ALL Islamic countries.

Otherwise, it appears that they are only speaking out now because groups like ISIL don't seem to be discriminating by race when it comes to who they will enslave or not enslave.

Would "more than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world" be "meeting" and 'condemning' this practice if the only women and girls being taken as slaves were Black; or if they were Phillipino domestics?

 

 

 

  Okay I tried it 4 times....won't change it.  This is a gliche that has been  a problem from day one.  You can't change it after it's been posted.  So maybe this is something Brotha MBM can work on this year.  Cuz sometimes I get up before 4 a.m. [writer's habit] and am still sleepy.  As why I have to make major proofreads/editing corrections once I finally wake up.  Cuz some of the stuff I write I know don't make any sense....thank God the editing functions still work otherwise I would be a lot more misunderstood than I am now.    But!

If I recall correctly, slavery was practiced here in the U.S. Had something to do with cotton, picking and laziness. Europeans needed someone else to do the job and didn't want to pay a dime for labor. All kinds of nasty shit went down through that mess. Lots of murder, human tree ornaments, brutality. Whites had slavery down to a science,can still display remnants if provoked.When a human male loses his mind completely, it's more than likely many will feel his wrath or die. There's no way out from under that creep.
