Not only that, you could have a different new ‘husband’ every week. Women who join ISIS are being passed around, bought and sold, by older jihadists at the rate of one per week in Syria. Girls under 15, with blue eyes and good teeth, are especially popular.
DNA India A former Islamic State (IS) militant has revealed that young Muslim women travelling to Syria to marry jihadists are being passed between men at the rate of one husband a week.
While describing the shocking conditions in which young women lived in war-torn Syria, a 33-year-old former IS fighter named Hamza said that the girls were forced to marry and sleep with older commanders in marriages that lasted for just seven days, before being divorced and partnered with a new husband, reported The Daily Express.
The revelation has raised concerns over the fate of three British schoolgirls who are believed to have travelled to Syria to link-up with the extremists. Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, flew first to Turkey from U K before travelling by land to the Syrian border.
Twenty years after a landmark U.N. conference on promoting gender equality, the head of the agency ‘U.N. Women’ said that a growing “conservative and extremist resistance” to equality between the sexes needs to be understood and confronted.
CNS News Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka called the problem “one of the new dangers” in the way of efforts to pursue the goal of global gender equality.
Neither she, nor a major report prepared for the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meeting she was addressing in New York, identified radical Islamic ideology as a leading factor, although surveys have found Muslim nations fare worst in gender equality rankings.
Mlambo-Ngcuka said the phenomenon was evident in ways like “ongoing attacks on girls’ education, women’s public participation and women’s control over their bodies.”
In several areas Ban’s report touched on problems that are common in Islamic contexts, where religious texts, teachings by Muslim clergy, the actions of jihadist groups and implementation of shari’a impact on women’s rights and freedoms. But it stopped short of identifying Islam as a factor:
–In advancing the agenda of women and security, “such emerging threats as the rise of violent extremism,” had limited and even set back progress.
–Many countries have legal systems that include “statutory, customary and/or religious law, which often do not work together to uphold the human rights of women.”
–Women human rights defenders face “stigmatization and ostracism by extremist and conservative groups, community leaders, families and communities who consider them to be challenging traditional notions of family and gender roles in the society and threatening religion, honor or culture through their work.”
Every year the World Economic Forum (WEF) evaluates countries of the world for its “Global Gender Gap” report, which measures gaps between women and men in the areas of political empowerment, economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, and health and survival.
Worst was Yemen, followed in order by Pakistan, Chad, Syria, Mali, Iran, Cote d’Ivoire, Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco, Guinea, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Oman, Algeria, Turkey, Bahrain and Tunisia. The only non-Muslim state in the bottom 20 was Ethiopia, ranked between Oman and Algeria.
According to 2013 U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF) data, FGM rates are highest in Somalia (estimated 98 percent prevalence), Djibouti (93), Egypt (91), Guinea (96), Mali (89), Eritrea (89), Sierra Leone (88) and Sudan (88). With the exception of Eritrea, ALL are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the bloc of Muslim-majority nations.
10 of the 20 countries with the highest rates of marriage under the age of 18 are Muslim majority states, including four of the top five (Niger, Chad, Bangladesh and Mali).
The OIC disputes that there is any link between Islam and practices like FGM and child marriage. In a statement delivered during a CSW session in 2013, the Islamic bloc described FGM as a “cultural” practice that is “disguised as part of religious tradition.” It also said that “child marriage, violence against women as well as other negative acts perpetuated are often misidentified as being part of Islamic tradition.
At that same 2013 CSW session, Egypt – then under a Muslim Brotherhood government – led a push to reject a draft declaration on violence against women, warning that it would “be the final step in the intellectual and cultural invasion of Muslim countries, eliminating the moral specificity that helps preserve cohesion of Islamic societies.”
Second-year law student Soumia Allalou said her Islamic religious beliefs exclude her from exercising in the presence of men, and added that all women would benefit from having the option of working out during exclusive hours. But a majority of women signing a petition are against women-only hours.
An online petition, titled “We oppose women-only hours at the McGill Fitness Centre,” had attracted at least 600 signatures before the link to the petition went down.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have had to put up with men touching me and insulting me in the streets of Kabul. And of course, as I grew up, it became worse. This happens to all women here, all the time.
Observers.France24 I told myself that I should react, fight back and answer their verbal abuse. But how many times a day could I fight this exhausting fight?. So I decided to put on a street performance to show men that their behavior is indecent, and to show society what women have to put up with every day.
I did this a week ago. I went out at about 6pm in Kote Sangi, Kabul’s most populated neighbourhood. I walk through Kote Sangi every day; women are frequently harassed there. Before I started, I prayed that I wouldn’t get chased down and killed by a hostile crowd. Unfortunately, my fears were well-founded – after a few minutes during which men in the street just seemed stunned, they started following me and insulting me. Some even started throwing rocks.
Nobody seemed to understand that what I was doing was an act of protest. I heard one little boy yell, “She’s covered herself in metal so nobody can touch her!” He was angry.
The only people who tried to defend me were a few friends and journalists who had come to see my performance. Men started punching us, kicking us. Some of my female friends told me that they were sexually molested by men in the crowd. I had planned on walking for 10 minutes, but after only 8 minutes, I had to run into a taxi. Young men continued to punch the car; the driver had to speed away.
A common tactic for men is to pinch women in the streets. They pinch us so hard it leaves bruises. These men are from all social classes: there are illiterates, students, rich men, poor men. I think the Taliban’s reign and the 13 years of war that followed have destroyed our values and our culture. The rise of extremism and violence has created a lot of frustration, which leads to this type of deviant behavior.
We live in a patriarchal society, where women are seen as second-class citizens. When we complain about sexual harassment, men often say that if a woman wears a proper veil, nobody will bother her. But this is obviously false, since even women who wear a burqa get harassed in the streets.
The government is not doing anything to stop this, and there’s no help available for the victims. We don’t even have a hotline to call. Families also bear their share of responsibility. A woman who is a victim of this type of abuse won’t dare talk about it to her father or her mother, for fear of disgracing them.
Women have to tear down this wall of silence. We must talk about this problem as much as possible and put pressure on the authorities to do something. If I don’t speak up now, one day my daughter will face this sort of harassment, and her daughter after her. My generation has to break this vicious cycle.
After my performance, angry men showed up at my door. Thankfully, I wasn’t home. I don’t feel safe anymore. I’m now hiding at friends’ homes in the suburbs of Kabul.
Sexual harassment is a major problem in Afghanistan. It has taken on such proportions that in October 2014, president Ashraf Ghani asked his government to come up with a plan to fight it, notably through education in schools. The government’s spokesperson recently stated that every day, about 40 people are arrested for sexual harassment. However, these individuals are often released since laws against harassment do not yet exist in Afghanistan.
The family of a young Canadian Muslim woman who traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State after being radicalized online say losing her was the most shocking thing in the world and the government should have done more to prevent her departure.
The 23-year-old woman made the journey to Syria to join up with ISIS last summer, after taking an online course to study the Qur’an taught by a woman based in Edmonton, says her older sister. When she called home from abroad, she told her family she was never coming home — that Syria was where she was going to die. BUH BYE!
The Islamic State’s (ISIS) established ‘morality’ police reportedly attacked a woman in eastern Syria because too much of her eyes were exposed.

Breitbart Women under the caliphate must dress conservatively, following the protocols issued in various ISIS publications concerning the behavior of women. This includes a full face veil. The majority of women shown in pictures and videos are covered from head to toe in all black.

In July, the jihadists passed extreme restrictions on women. A full-face veil is required, and the hands and feet must be covered. Females must not wear clothes that“hug the body.”
“The conditions imposed on her clothes and grooming was only to end the pretext of debauchery resulting from grooming and overdressing,” said the ISIS publication. “This is not a restriction on her freedom but to prevent her from falling into humiliation and vulgarity or to be a theatre for the eyes of those who are looking.”
“Anyone who is not committed to this duty and is motivated by glamour will be subject to accountability and severe punishment to protect society from harm and to maintain the necessities of religion and protect it from debauchery.”
An all-female Islamic State brigade is also known to also enforce Sharia law within the caliphate. In December, they used a bear trap known as a “biter” on women’s breasts who defied the protocols of the terrorist group. The torture device was used on one woman who was arrested in public for breastfeeding and her niqab was transparent.
After the jihadists took over Mosul, Iraq, they demanded all shopowners place a veil on mannequins, even the males, since “the human form is not depicted in statues or artwork.”
ISIS believes that girls can marry adult men when they are only nine years old; that “pure” girls should be married by the time they are 16 or 17; that motherhood is the sole purpose of female existence. The Manifesto was posted in Arabic last month on a Jihadist forum and crafted by ISIS’s female militia Al-Khanssaa Brigade.
Face and body veiling are mandatory for women—which is just as well since beauty parlors and shops selling fashionable clothes are the “instruments of the devil and must not be tolerated.”
Aisha Forsythe, whose face the CBC agreed to conceal, says she may file a human rights complaint after allegedly being harrassed at a government office for wearing a Muslim ‘hijabag’ on her head.
CBC(h/t Susan K) Forsythe said the government told her it has resolved her complaint, but she’s frustrated because the employment ministry is refusing to offer any details about how it plans to address the issue.
When she visited the Emploi-Québec office on St-Jean Boulevard last month to get help looking for work, she alleges a counsellor there instead focused on her hijab.(Who does she think would hire her?)
Forsythe said she was told she had made a choice to “live in a ghetto” and that she would need to go to an “Arab country” to find work. Forsythe said no one apologized, or explained what, if any, discipline the employee in question might face. (Discipline? The employee got a promotion)
She said she was told her complaint was closed and she would not hear from the ministry again. That’s not good enough for Forsythe. “I just think it was a terrible thing that happened and I can’t imagine it didn’t happen to other people as well, so I would just like to see something change, some way of ensuring it doesn’t continue.”
Five men have been arrested in India, charged with kidnapping and repeatedly raping a Japanese female student. Two of the men arrested were brothers, Sajid Khan, 32, and his 25-year-old brother Jawed Khan.
BBC Police in the eastern city of Calcutta say the assaults took place over a period of more than a month from 23 November and in at least two locations. They say an organized gang is suspected of targeting single women tourists.
Pallav Kanti Ghosh, a Calcutta police commissioner, told BBC Hindi that two of the men – said to be brothers – approached the 23-year-old victim as tourist guides after she arrived in the city and checked into a hotel in an area popular with foreign tourists.
“One of the men spoke very fluent Japanese,” he said. “They said: ‘We are guides and want to take you sight-seeing.’ “They took her to Digha [a beach resort in West Bengal state] on 23 November. There they sexually assaulted her and robbed her of 76,000 rupees [£1,200] using her ATM card.”
She was then taken to Bodh Gaya, the holiest site of Buddhism and a major pilgrimage and tourist centre. “There, the men handed her over to other gang members,” Mr Ghosh said. The woman was held captive for several weeks and the assaults continued, he said.
In late December she managed to escape and reach the city of Varanasi from where she travelled to Calcutta, lodging a complaint at the Japanese consulate on Dec. 26th. Mr Ghosh said three of the men were arrested near Bodh Gaya and two in Calcutta. Police are searching for other members of what he called an organized gang of (Muslim) rapists.
And the relatively light slap-on-the-wrist punishment the Somali Muslim rapist got from a Swedish court.
10 NEWS Nicolai Sennels The very violent and vicious rape took place September 12, 2014. It all began when the Somali man stole the woman’s bicycle. When she followed him to get it back the bike, he cornered her in a courtyard.
“Now you will die you fucking cunt!,” the Somali Muslim shouted as he attacked her. He kicked and hit his victim in the head with a glass bottle and then brutally raped her many different ways. The woman suffered serious injuries.
According to the court, the rape was “ruthless, brutal and barbaric in nature”.
‘The woman felt she was on the verge of death, and repeatedly begged him to stop, at one point by praying on her knees with her hands clasped. The Muslim savage held her by the throat so she could not breathe. ‘He pushed her onto the broken glass and then attempted to sodomize her,’ reads the judgment.
Ibrahim Ahmed Dahir, who stated that he does not remember anything of the event, was sentenced to just 6 years in prison for aggravated rape and has to pay 164,000 kroner ($21,000 USD) in damages to the woman.
The Muslim savage is a Swedish citizen and therefore cannot be deported to Somalia.”
When it comes to rapes, Islamized Sweden is already in a state of war. Sweden does not publish statistics on immigrant crime. If we want to have a hint about who is committing these tens of thousands of rapes and other types of sexual assaults yearly, we can turn to another Scandinavian country, Sweden’s neighbor Norway, the country most similar to Sweden. Here 100 percent of all attack-rapes (rapes where the attacker and the victim did not know each other beforehand) in the last five years in Oslo were committed by immigrants from “non-Western” countries. In Stavanger, a major Norwegian city, 90 percent of rapes are committed by “immigrants.”
As usual, the left wing media chose to exclude this little detail. Witnesses tell of chaos, panic, and Muslim men fighting for their own survival.
10 News(h/t Susan K) The ferry caught fire Sunday morning at. 6 local time. At that time the ferry was 61 km from the coast near Corfu. The fire broke out on the deck, and has been impossible to extinguish. And it took 32 hours before the last person had been evacuated from the ferry.
The Greek soprano Dimitra Theodossiou was on board the ferry. She told the Italian media that she saw Muslim men beating women in order to come first to the rescue helicopter.
“It was hell. I saw some scary scenes. There were men, Iraqis, Turks, Pakistanis on the ship, who were told to sit down to allow rescuers to prioritize children, elderly and women. But they climbed, beat and pulled the people to come first to the rescue helicopter and into safety. I was also beaten. I was so furious. It was really ugly. I will never forget it.”, Said Dimitra Theodossiou.”
Though Kurdish authorities say Pershmerga forces have taken control of a ‘large area’ from Islamic State militants, the Yazidi minority in Iraq say 3,500 women and girls are still being held by ISIS, bought and sold as sex slaves. Four months after they were forced from their homes, the world has forgotten them.
The Research and Fatwa Department of the Islamic State (ISIS) has released a pamphlet with ‘Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves.’
JUST RELEASED!Price List: The ISIS price list for slaves ranks the cost of a woman by age, so while a woman aged 40-50 would sell for just 50,000 dinars or $43, a girl aged 10-20 would be worth 150,000 dinars ($125) and a child under nine would sell for 200,000 dinars ($166).
MEMRI It was presumably released in response to the uproar caused by the many reports this summer that ISIS had taken Yazidi girls and women as sex slaves. Written in the form of questions and answers, it clarifies the position of Islamic law (as ISIS interprets it) on various relevant issues, and states, among other things, that it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with non-Muslim slaves, including young girls, and that it is also permitted to beat them and trade in them.
“Question 1: What is al-sabi?
“Al-Sabi is a woman from among ahl al-harb [the people of war] who has been captured by Muslims.
“Question 2: What makes al-sabi permissible?

“There is no dispute among the scholars that it is permissible to capture unbelieving women [who are characterized by] original unbelief [kufr asli], such as the kitabiyat [women from among the People of the Book, i.e. Jews and Christians] and polytheists. However, [the scholars] are disputed over [the issue of] capturing apostate women. The consensus leans towards forbidding it, though some people of knowledge think it permissible. We [ISIS] lean towards accepting the consensus…”
“Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive?
“It is permissible to have sexual intercourse with the female captive. Allah the almighty said: ‘[Successful are the believers] who guard their chastity, except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are free from blame [Koran 23:5-6]’…”

“Question 9: If the female captive was impregnated by her owner, can he then sell her?
“He can’t sell her if she becomes the mother of a child…”
“Question 10: If a man dies, what is the law regarding the female captive he owned?

“Question 14: What private parts of the female slave’s body must be concealed during prayer?
“Her private body parts [that must be concealed] during prayer are the same as those [that must be concealed] outside [prayer], and they [include] everything besides the head, neck, hands and feet.”
“Question 15: May a female slave meet foreign men without wearing a hijab?
“A female slave is allowed to expose her head, neck, hands, and feet in front of foreign men if fitna [enticement] can be avoided. However, if fitna is present, or of there is fear that it will occur, then it [i.e. exposing these body parts becomes] forbidden.”
“Question 16: Can two sisters be taken together while taking slaves?
“It is permissible to have two sisters, a female slave and her aunt [her father’s sister], or a female slave and her aunt [from her mother’s side].

“She [i.e. the female slave who runs away from her master] has no punishment according to the shari’a of Allah; however, she is [to be] reprimanded [in such a way that] deters others like her from escaping.”
“Question 22: Is it permissible to marry a Muslim [slave] or a kitabiyya [i.e. Jewish or Christian] female slave?
