Skip to comments.Jihad and rape go hand in hand: Robert Spencer explains Muhammad's example of forced sex

"Each of us was raped by between three and six men. One woman refused to have sex with them, so they split her head into pieces with an axe in front of us."
This happened in Darfur, from which Sudanese military personnel actually airlifted women to Khartoum to serve as sex slaves.
Meanwhile, Indira Dzetskelova, the mother of one of the child hostages in Beslan, Russia, reports that "several 15-year-old girls were raped by terrorists." Her daughter "heard their terrible cries and screams when those monsters took them away."
This indicates that there are two things the massacre in Beslan has in common with the ongoing massacres in Darfur: both, no less than the 9-11 attacks, are examples of Islamic jihad terrorism, and both are characterized by rape.
The jihadist element has been made clear by the ringleaders of both atrocities. Sudanese Gen. Mohamed Beshir Suleiman recently declared: "The door of the jihad is still open and if it has been closed in the south it will be opened in Darfur." In southern Sudan, of course, the jihad was waged against Christians; in Darfur, the targets are black African Muslims whose Islamic bona fides don't satisfy Khartoum. As for Beslan, the Chechen jihadist leader Shamil Besayev warned the Russian government last winter: "Praise Allah, we are dreaming of dying in jihad, we are dreaming of dying on the way of Allah, so that we could earn paradise and mercy of Allah."
What does rape, then, have to do with these religious conflicts? Unfortunately, everything. The Islamic legal manual 'Umdat al-Salik, which carries the endorsement of Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates: "When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately annulled." Why? So that they are free to become the concubines of their captors. The Quran permits Muslim men to have intercourse with their wives and their slave girls: "Forbidden to you are ... married women, except those whom you own as slaves." (Sura 4:23-24)
After one successful battle, Muhammad tells his men, "Go and take any slave girl." He took one for himself also. After the notorious massacre of the Jewish Qurayzah tribe, he did it again. According to his earliest biographer, Ibn Ishaq, Muhammad "went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for [the men of Banu Qurayza] and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches." After killing "600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900," the Prophet of Islam took one of the widows he had just made, Rayhana bint Amr, as another concubine.
Emerging victorious in another battle, according to a generally accepted Islamic tradition, Muhammad's men present him with an ethical question: "We took women captives, and we wanted to do 'azl [coitus interruptus] with them." Muhammad told them: "It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection." When Muhammad says "it is better that you should not do it," he's referring to coitus interruptus, not to raping their captives. He takes that for granted.
With Muhammad revered throughout the Islamic world as al-insan al-kamil, the perfect man, the rapes of Darfur and Beslan are not surprising. What is surprising, or ought to be, is the silence from the Islamic world about the rapes in both cases. Where are the reformers who will dare to say that Muhammad's example must not be followed in this case? Who will acknowledge that the world has developed principles of human rights that must supercede those forged in seventh-century Arabia? Where are the Western spokesmen who are not so in thrall to multiculturalism that they will condemn rape that is justified according to Islamic religious principles? The much-lionized "Muslim Martin Luther," Tariq Ramadan, now banned from entering the U.S., can so far only bring himself to call for a moratorium, not a definitive ban, on stoning for adulterers. Rape of captives? His sentiments are not known. Where is the Muslim Solzhenitsyn, who will speak honestly about the aspects of Islam that so desperately need reform and call for the overhaul that the system so obviously needs?
The whole world is waiting. But for the girls and women of Darfur and Beslan, it is already too late.
All Muhammadans are commanded by Koran to copy the life of Muhammad, the perfect life lived by the perfect man.
That's why they can marry nine year old girls.
Of course. If Islam isn't a tailor-made culture for a rapist, I don't know what would be.
Yes. Christians are taught that Jesus lived without sin, but are not told to live like him in every way. Male Muslims are told Mohammed is the example for all of them to follow. ("perfect" might be the wrong word because Mohammed did err a few times, for intance about the three goddesses and when he slept with one of his wives out of turn)
If Muslims are going to use Mohammed as the example of a perfect or near-perfect role model, I think it's perfectly fair to criticize his behavior.
Have you seen the info linke at 7?
I finally figured out what Islam is when I learned it's all about emulating the "perfect life" of Muhammad. Muhammad had good aspects to his life but was a Jihadist murderer later on. Koran reflects this. Koran is not only evil shit. Learn more here--->>>
From Rags to Riches, From Preacher to Despot
The Muslim man that I know from work has made sexual advances on several females who work there. He believes that if they are out there working (instead of at home under the control of a male relative) that they are fair game sexually. Complaints have been made--but the university is determined to protect him. I know that as a white man, I would be fired immediately if I behaved the way he does. Some Muslims have a very different philosphy about women, and some liberals do to much to cater to them.
It's that Mecca-Medina contradiction in Muhammad's actions and preachings. He became a full blown psycho killer in Medina.
The "nice" Muslims only quote the "nice" parts of the Koran and ignore (to varying degrees) the murderous imprecations in it. In Koran and Hadith. They will lie to you and tell you Jihad means only inner struggle, not war.
Drop their boyfriends a private note about the little Muhammadan predator...
If I hear that inner struggle bull crap to rationalize...arrrrgh...drives me freaking nuts.
"Some Muslims have a very different philosphy about women, and some liberals do to much to cater to them."
Outrage is growing in Denmark and Norway, over rapes of the local girls by immigrant muslim males.
I have read the "logic" in islam allows this, because the girls are "non-believers" (Infidels) and get no protection.
Stated differently, islam's rules for social order and decent behavior apply only between muslims; the rest are fair game for any treachery possible.
It is just plain okay for them to rape non-muslims.
Muslim sexual harassment? Bring it a video camera. He'll run screaming like a little boy.
Unfortunately, the University is so determined to protect him that when women complain they get harassed by the university officials as well. Things in America are not always the way that they should be. However, I wouldn't be at all surprised if some red-blooded American male makes sure this freak loser gets what is coming to him eventually.
This and the other thread ("Arab women encouraged Darfur rapes: Amnesty") makes my skin crawl... and the pacifist on the "U.S. Bombs Fallujah; Eight Dead, 15 Hurt" thread is weeping over America???
"What is surprising, or ought to be, is the silence from the Islamic world about the rapes ...."
What is more surprising is the silence in the muslim world about man/boy relationships. Do you have any links of info to this?
