In its latest online magazine issue, the Islamic State (ISIS) defends ‘Rape Jihad’ by citing the history and doctrines of Islam in which Mohammed and his followers enslaved and raped non-Muslim women. ISIS claims correctly to be following in his footsteps.
Allah has opened the lands for His awliyā’, so they entered and dispersed within the lands,killing the fighters of the kuffār (non-Muslims), capturing their women, and enslaving their children.
I write this while the letters drip of pride. Yes, O religions of kufr (non-Muslims) altogether, we have indeed raided and captured the kāfirah women, and drove them like sheep by the edge of the sword.
I and those with me at home prostrated to Allah in gratitude on the day the first slave-girl entered our home.
Finally a religion that rapists can really get behind. ISIS bluntly spells out its objectives. The destruction of non-Muslims.
It is Caliphate with everything it contains of honor and pride for the Muslim and humiliation and degradation for the kāfir (non-Muslim).
This was in fact the usual way of life for non-Muslims in the Muslim world until European invasions temporarily liberated minorities, many of whom fled the region. That’s why so many Christian Lebanese and Syrians ended up in America in the 20th century and so many Algerian and Moroccan Jews ended up in France.
ISIS cites extensive Islamic precedents for its Rape Jihad.
“Mohammed would kill their men and enslave their children and women. The raids of the beloved Prophet convey this to us.”
He probably wasn’t beloved by the women he raped, but that’s another story. And then ISIS suggests it’s not a fan of Michelle Obama.
“Leave us alone with your burping and wait for a Khilāfah that Obama comes to you with… And who knows, maybe Michelle Obama’s price won’t even exceed a third of a dīnār, and a third of a dīnār is too much for her!”
Well obviously. She’s not a terrified 12-year-old Kurdish or Yazidi girl so she won’t command a large price. ISIS, like Mohammed, prefers their women under 12 years old.
