Sexual Jihad? Islamic State Executes 19 Unwilling Sex Slaves

Sexual Jihad? Islamic State Executes 19 Unwilling Sex Slaves August 6, 2015

The Islamic State has executed 19 women for refusing to be willing sex slaves and participate in what state officials term “sexual jihad.”

According to multiple media reports, 19 women in the city of Mosul were put to death earlier this month for refusing to have sex with Islamic State fighters.

Said Mimousini, a spokesperson for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), explains that the women were taken captive as sex slaves after Islamic State fighters overran the Iraqi town of Mosul last year.

Mimousini,  speaking with Iraqi News on Monday, said:

Isis [has] executed 19 women in the city of Mosul during the past two days. The penalty decision came on the background of the refusal to participate in the practice of sexual jihad.

According to Valerie Amos, the UN’s under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief, women and girls as young as 12 are currently being enslaved and sexually abused by the Islamic State.

During a recent UN Security Council session Amos reported:

Women captured as slaves by [Islamic State] have been sold in markets in Raqqa. Some are sold to individual men. Others are kept by [Islamic State] in rest houses and face multiple rapes by fighters returning from the battlefield.

Previously the Islamic State issued a detailed and horrific guide to the capture, punishment, and rape of female non-believers, all in accord with sharia (Islamic law). Indeed, the Islamic State requires fighters to follow a strict Islamic code of conduct in the matter of kidnapping young women and trading them like cattle for sexual gratification.

Fighters for the Islamic State have kidnapped thousands of women and girls in their raids on towns and villages across northern Syria and western Iraq. The captured females are often sold and traded as sex slaves, or given to Islamic State fighters as “gifts.”

Earlier this summer, the Islamic State celebrated Ramadan with sex slaves and child crucifixions. Winners of a Quran memorization contest were awarded female sex slaves while children who ate at the wrong hour were punished with crucifixion.

Bottom line: The Islamic State is using Islam to justify the most heinous horrors imaginable. It is the stuff of nightmares, and it is happening right now.

Allahu Akbar?
