Amnesty International said the victims, some just babies, were snatched from villages and are being forced into marriage or sold as sex slaves. Girls raped by ISIS are jumping to their deaths from Mt. Sinjar.
UK Mirror Up to 3,000 women and girls have been kidnapped by Islamic State thugs on the rampage in Iraq over the past two weeks, it is feared. They face the terrifying prospect of being forced into marriage or sold as sex slaves, reports the Sunday People.
Amnesty International said the victims, some just babies, were snatched from villages overrun by the heavily-armed jihadists. Hundreds of male villagers who refuse to convert to Islam have been mercilessly shot dead.
Meanwhile US jets continued to pound Islamic State positions and British planes airlifted relief supplies to refugees yesterday.
The militants have executed 700 members of the Al-Sheeitat tribe in eastern Syria, a monitoring group claimed last night. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said many were beheaded.
It also emerged that 400 men from Iraq’s Yazidi community were slaughtered in cold blood in just 48 hours after the village of Kojo was taken. Senior Kurdish officials said 82 men died on Friday and 312.
Militants took men away in groups of a few dozen and shot them with assault rifles on the edge of the village, according to a wounded man who escaped by feigning death. They then strolled around finishing off any who appeared to be alive with their pistols, the 42-year-old said.
He added: “They thought we were all dead. When they went we ran away. “We hid in a valley until sundown, and then we fled to the mountains.”
A hundred women and girls from Kojo were taken away. Their fate is uncertain, like thousands of women snatched since Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, launched its cruel onslaught on August 3. Amnesty spokeswoman Donatella Rovera said yesterday: “The victims are of all ages. “It seems they took away entire families, all those who did not manage to flee.”
The women and girls are said to be held in Islamic State-controlled Tal Afar , east of Mount Sinjar, or the city of Mosul.
Two women, Leila Khalaf and Wadhan Khalaf, were among those kidnapped from Mujamma Jazira village. A male relative, Dakhil Atto Solo, said the abductions happened after residents tried to resist the attack by Islamic State (IS). He recalled: “We tried to defend our villages but they had much bigger weapons. All we had were our Kalashnikov rifles.
“They executed 300 men and took the women to their prisons. Only God can save them now.” The family had managed to save their children, Mr Solo said. But he went on: “The women were in a house surrounded by IS. We had to escape. “Now the children cry for their mothers all the time. ‘Mama, mama,’ they wail. But there is no Mama.”
The father of one kidnapped girl revealed she had told him she was about to be sold as a sex slave for just 10 US dollars. Khandhar Kaliph’s daughter fell into the hands of IS fighters when they captured the mountain town Sinjar.
Speaking after she rang home using a phone being passed around the hostages, he said: “She said she is going to be sold as a slave this afternoon. “What can a father say to that? How can I help? We all feel so useless. “The world needs to know that our women are being enslaved, young and old alike.”
A message on a Twitter account apparently belonging to British IS militant Abu Muthana, a former Cardiff schoolboy, appeared to gloat about capturing women and girls and taking them to Syria. It read: “I confirm we have hundreds of Yazidi slave women in Syria. How about that for news!”
Senior United Nations officials condemned “barbaric acts” by IS in a statement. It said: “We are gravely concerned by reports of acts of violence, including sexual violence, against women and teenage girls and boys belonging to Iraqi minorities.
“Atrocious accounts of abduction of Yazidi, Christian, Turkomen and Shabak women, girls and boys, and reports of savage rapes, are reaching us in an alarming manner.” Terror of the wave of violence and killing has driven 1.2 million Iraqis from their homes. Whole communities of Yazidis and Christians have fled, along with Shia Iraqis, who the Sunni IS militants do not regard as true Muslims.
At least 11 Islamic State fighters were killed in air strikes near north Iraq’s Mosul dam as American fighters and drones provided cover for Iraqi and Kurdish troops. The dam, was captured by jidhadists on August 7.
Britain airlifted 8,000 kitchen sets to Iraq to allow 40,000 refugees formerly trapped on Mount Sinjar to cook for themselves instead of queuing at makeshift canteens. Two Airbus jets touched down in the Kurdish capital Erbil with a load including cutlery, pots and pans, plates and cups.
Britain has so far committed £13million aid in response to the crisis . The UK also said on Friday it would “consider favourably” any request by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters for arms supplies.
But it came amid anger that countries on a Government watchlist for human rights abuses are being prioritised for increased arms sales. Sales of guns, ammunition, vehicles, explosives and tear gas to oppressive dictatorships are revealed in documents seen by the Sunday People.
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has sought to increase licences to Middle Eastern states such as Libya, Bahrain and Iraq. The Government also sought to beef-up arms sales to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. All five are listed by the Foreign Office as of human rights concern.
Data collected by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) also reveals the Government has agreed arms export licences with a further 12 countries on the human rights watch list.
Andrew Smith of CAAT said: “Selling arms to these countries is at odds with the Government’s claims that it promotes human rights abroad. When weapons get sold into a warzone you can’t control them.”
Since 2008 the Government has agreed £5.5billion in arms licences to Saudi Arabia, more than £43million to Iraq, £76million with Libya, £134million with Pakistan and £30million with Bahrain. It is possible British-built weapons are now in the hands of Islamic State after after the fanatics pillaged bases abandoned by the fleeing Iraqi army.
ISIS terrorists just massacred 80 more Yazidis and kidnapped several women and girls because they refused to convert to Islam
Somehow, this little girl doesn’t look too happy about her future as a sex slave for Islamic jihadists.

According to the Kurdish intelligence sources, the girls and women are being sold to traffickers to work in bordellos across the Middle East. They also say they’ve received information that the captured women are sold for a price of between $500 and $43,000 US dollars. Other reports say some other women have been forced to marry ISIS terrorists, who have captured thousands of women including at least 1200 of them from Sinjar.

The al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has ordered all girls and women between the ages of 11 and 46 in and around Iraq’s northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations said on Thursday.
Al-Arabiya (h/t Maria J) “It is a fatwa (or religious edict) of ISIS, we learnt this this morning,” said Jacqueline Badcock, the number two U.N. official in Iraq. The “fatwa” would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, Badcock told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Arbil.
“This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed,” she said, according to Reuters. “This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added.
No one was immediately available for comment from Islamic State which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq.
FGM, the partial or total removal of external female genitalia, is a tradition practiced widely in many Muslim countries and often justified as a means of suppressing a woman’s sexual desire to prevent “immoral” behavior.
Worldwide, more than 130 million girls and women have undergone FGM and more than 700 million women alive today were children when they were married. The practice of FGM previously occurred only in isolated pockets of Iraq, mainly Kurdistan, according to Badcock.
Mosul city currently has some two million people, more than half of whom are women as there are many female-headed households in the area, she said. Several more million people live in surrounding areas, she added.
“There are reports of rapes of women, of forced marriages,” Badcock added.
An estimated 130 million young girls have undergone sexual mutilation, mostly in Muslim countries, but now, apparently in Great Britain, Europe, and the USA, too.
A five-year-old child in the Afghan city of Herat died this week after being the victim of a gang rape, from which he sustained fatal injuries. The incident has triggered another wave of outrage in the nation, which has struggled for centuries against Islamic cultural norms promoting rape.
This is a young Afghan boy but not the one in this story
Breitbart (h/t Rob E) According to the Afghanistan Times, the boy, who was not named by police, was raped by two other boys in succession. The two boys, neighbors of the victim, raped the five-year-old repeatedly until they became aware that the boy’s life was in danger. According to Herat Police spokesman Abdul Rauf Ahmadi, “When the accusers came to know that [the] life of the child was in danger after [the] sexual assault then the two assaulters tried to shift the victim to [the] hospital. However, he lost his life on the way as result of serious injuries.”
The boys have been arrested following the incident, though given the nature of rape law in Afghanistan, convicting rapists is a difficult matter. The Afghanistan Times notes, for example, that doctors are already claiming the rape was not the cause of death. One doctor, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the boy appeared to have been choked in addition to being raped: “Therefore, we are sure that the boy did not die because of injuries but of choking.”
In addition to the legal situation surrounding child rape, much of Afghan culture is plagued by the persistence of the rape of children. One institution that persists in this realm is the practice of bacha bazi (see links below), in which older men take on pre-pubescent male lovers. The U.S. State Department called this practice a “widespread, culturally sanctioned form of male rape.”
BACHA BAZI – This is the ancient Islamic cultural practice of older men being with prepubescent boys.

Presidential frontrunner Abdul el-Sisi has expressed his intent to bring Egypt out of the dark ages of Islam and its misogynistic and barbaric practices such as FGM.
FGM has been outlawed since 2008 but is still widely practised in Egypt, which has one of the highest prevalence rates in the world. Over 90% of women under 50 have experienced it, according to government figures. The removal of all or part of the external genitalia is done in the name of promoting chastity. Some parents see it as a religious duty in spite of a ruling against it. Now-ousted president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, tried, while he was in office, to have FGM mandated for every girl and enforced by the government.
