New Fatwa permits rape of non-Sunni women in Syria
Human Events ^ | 4/2/2013 | Raymond Ibrahim

Posted on 04/09/2013 4:55:24 AM PDT by Mount Athos

Yet another Islamic cleric recently made it permissible for the Islamic fighters waging a jihad in Syria—politely known as “the opposition”—to rape the nation’s women.

Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni, a Jordanian of origin who lived in Damascus, Syria for 17 years, posted a YouTube video last week where he said he was preparing to issue a “legitimate fatwa” making it legal (in the eyes of Islam) for those Muslims fighting to topple secular president Bashar Assad and install Sharia law to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women, specifically naming Assad’s own sect, the Alawites, as well as the Druze and several others, basically, all non-Sunnis and non-Muslims.

The Sheikh used Islam’s legitimate Arabic term for these hapless, non-Muslim women, melk al-yamin, a phrase that appears in Islam’s sacred book, the Koran, and which is simply a reference to non-Muslim sex-slaves. For example, Koran 4:3 commands Muslim men to “Marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four… or what your right hands possess.” Islam’s ulema, or “scholars,” are unanimously agreed that “what your right hands possess” is, according to Islamic law, simply a sex-slave. Linguistic evidence further suggests that she is seen more as an animal, a possession than a human—hence this inhuman fatwa.

Jordanian Sheih Yasir al-‘Ajlawni is certainly not the first cleric to legitimize the rape of infidel women in recent times. Calls to capture and rape non-Muslim women are appearing with increasing frequency and from all corners of the Islamic world.

A few months earlier, Saudi preacher Muhammad al-Arifi also issued a fatwa allowing jihadi fighters to engage in “intercourse marriage” with captive Syrian women that lasts for a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn”—also known as gang-rape.

Then there is Egyptian Sheikh Ishaq Huwaini, who once lectured on how infidel captives, or to use another term from the Koran, ghanima, the “spoils of war,” are to be distributed among the jihadis and taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold.” He, too, referred to such women as “what your right hands possess,” saying: “You go to the market and buy her, and she becomes like your legal mate—though without a contract, a guardian, or any of that stuff—and this is agreed upon by the ulema…. In other words, when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”

Indeed, even some Muslim women advocate the enslavement and rape of fellow (non-Muslim) women. Kuwaiti political activist, Salwa al-Mutairi, for instance, is working to see the institution of sex-slavery return. In a video she posted online, she explained how she once asked Islam’s greatest authorities living in the city of Mecca, the city of Islam, about the legality of sex-slavery and how they all confirmed it to be perfectly legitimate. According to Mutairi:

A Muslim state must [first] attack a Christian state—sorry, I mean any non-Muslim state—and they [the women, the future sex-slaves] must be captives of the raid. Is this forbidden? Not at all; according to Islam, sex slaves are not at all forbidden. Quite the contrary, the rules regulating sex-slaves differ from those for free women [i.e., Muslim women]: the latter’s body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on up—she is different from the free woman; the free woman has to be married properly to her husband, but the sex-slave—he just buys her and that’s that.

The Kuwaiti activist went on to offer concrete suggestions: “For example, in the Chechnya war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait; better that than have our men engage in forbidden sexual relations. I don’t see any problem in this, no problem at all.”

One can go on and on with more examples. The point is that last week’s fatwa permitting the jihadi-led “opposition” to target and rape non-Sunni Syrian women is in good company, and certainly not an aberration.

The only aberration seems to be the United States’ wholesale support for self-professed rapists and terrorists—quite laughably, in the name of “democracy.”

Their religion is not like my religion.
The media in my country despises my religion, but shows nothing but respect and admiration for their religion.

Bit odd, that.

You have to keep trying to remember that Assad is the bad man here.

The guy who needs replacement by these religious rapists.

Send the rapists more American foreign aid so they can continue to get rid of the bad man .

The Obama Administration and the RINOs supporting
it have led to thousands of rapes from Libya
through Egypt to Syria and beyond, and crucifixions.

They include the rape of a US Ambassador,
watched live on television in the White House and State Dept.

America’s feminists approve of rape.

They must. We havent heard them say one thing against it, and they just love Obama who keeps sending the rapists money.

And in related news, the major woman’s organization NOW issued a strongly worded condemnation of the cult that treats women far worse than animals, and urged the 0bama administration to block all immigration from countries ruled by the death cult.

Dream on.

Islam: “Rape Approval”.

Mohammed agrees.

Mohammed committed Child Rape of Aisha when she was 9.

Islam: Raping as approved policy since 680 A.D.

The “Prophet” mohammed was a child rapist.

That’s not slander, that’s HISTORY.

Strictly speaking, Jews and Christians could use Judges 21:10-24, Deuteronomy 20:10-14 and a number of other Biblical quotations to endorse sex slavery of female captives after a war or battle, but they never do.

I totally disagree with you.

Those passages aren’t open ended commands like the Islamic equivalent are.

It’s not an accident they are “never do”, because they can’t.

These were commands from YHVH, relayed by his prophets.

Sets a bit of a precedent, don't you think?

No not at all.

I’ve never heard of any Christian denomination that thinks so either.

You’re out on your own

I’m agreeing that Christians and Jews don’t do this, even though if they really wanted to, they could claim a Biblical precedent. I’m rather clumsily making the contrast between these and Islam.

What a stretch to demonstrate moral equivalence....sorry ....not even close...

Would love to see you point out in the new Testament where Christ or His disciples expressed the morality of raping a captive women of a different religion....

You won't obviously....

However...what you will find....is a great deal of encouragement to forgive, to be humble and serve....and the command to love one another....

Yep...so similar in deed...

Yes, that’s the point. The ‘love one another’ command, which Islam does NOT possess, trumps Old Testament precedence. I’ve not mentioned that NT at all and I’m fully aware that Christ and His Disciples don’t condone such things.
