Yes, Islamists are terribly offended by pictures of Mohammed, but they don’t seem to have much problem with enslaving, raping and brutalizing women. Nope, that’s just business as usual – at least according to a report prepared by a United Nations official.
As reported by the Daily Mail, “an Islamic State terrorist group forced a sex slave to marry 20 fighters and even made her undergo surgery each time to restore her virginity, a United Nations official said.
The group paraded and traded Syrian and Iraqi girls in ‘slave markets’ before the victims were shipped to other provinces, according to Zainab Bangura, special envoy on sexual violence in conflict, who travelled to five countries and interviewed dozens of women and young girls who had survived brutal sexual abuse.
She said the girls were routinely stripped naked before being categorized and shipped off.
‘ISIL have institutionalized sexual violence and the brutalization of women as a central aspect of their ideology and operations, using it as a tactic of terrorism to advance their key strategic objectives.’
Bangura completed her research late in April and visited Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan.
In February reports said militants fighting in Syria were seeking medical attention to improve their sexual prowess and subjecting their wives to ‘brutal, abnormal’ sex acts, according to local doctors.
The Daily Mail says “Yazidi women and girls, some as young as five, taken from their homes earlier in the year were also regularly raped and abused by fighters, survivors said.”
“A human rights office also published a horrifying report earlier in the year describing killings, torture, rape, sexual slavery and the use of child soldiers by the extremists, suggesting they may be guilty of ‘war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide’.”
Gee, ya think? But you sure don’t want to make them angry by drawing cartoons. Oh no, because if you make them angry, they’ll do something REALLY bad. Because beheadings, burning people alive, throwing gay people off roofs, torture, rape and sexual slavery aren’t bad enough.
