Skip to comments.New Fatwa permits rape of non-Sunni women in Syria
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 Syriapolitely known as the oppositionto rape the nations 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 Assads own sect, the Alawites, as well as the Druze and several others, basically, all non-Sunnis and non-Muslims.
The Sheikh used Islams legitimate Arabic term for these hapless, non-Muslim women, melk al-yamin, a phrase that appears in Islams 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. Islams 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 humanhence 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 turnalso 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 matethough without a contract, a guardian, or any of that stuffand 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 Islams 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 statesorry, I mean any non-Muslim stateand 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 latters body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on upshe is different from the free woman; the free woman has to be married properly to her husband, but the sex-slavehe just buys her and thats 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 dont see any problem in this, no problem at all.
One can go on and on with more examples. The point is that last weeks 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 terroristsquite 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.
More of Obama’s friends.
Look no further if you want to see a real war on women.
Jusr remember, “Islamophobia” is a form of religious extremism. /s/s/s
Where are the NOW nags ?
These are John McCain’s and Obama’s ALLIES in Syria. Wonder if John has passed this on to his pudgy little daughter with the funny leftwingtard ideas.
On travel status?
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.
Where’s a drone when you really need a few? These sickos need to be sent on their way to hell ASAP.
Animals masquerading as humans.Islam=evil.When will we hear a condemnation of this practice from “moderate muslims” and women’s rights groups?
These re the monsters the Obama Regime is supporting... More War on Women from the left.
islam is the religion of peace. There are just a few radical islamists. Heck, the new leader of the CIA and the pResident are muslims, aren’t they?
What a f*cking mess!
So it is official, Sunni Muslims are rapists for God.
According to Whoopi, it’s not rape-rape.
Freedom fighters. I’m so proud we are involved in this debacle.
Islam: “Rape Approval”.
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.
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.
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.
