“The older ones were led behind away before gunfire was heard a short while later”
This is unfortunately a consequence of the Islamic view of non-Muslims and women practiced by ISIS. These Yazidi women were unfortunate enough to be both. They also were a little older. So they were of no use to their Islamic State captors and they were murdered.
Clumps of hair and fragments of bone poke grotesquely out of the ditch. It is estimated that almost 80 women are buried in this mass grave, aged between 40 and 80-years-old. The bodies are of Yazidi women, murdered by Islamic State butchers.
As the world prayed for Paris, more than three thousand miles east another atrocity was being uncovered…
Over the past year, Islamic State forces have kidnapped thousands of young Yazidi women to use as sex slaves. Now we know what happened to those not deemed ‘attractive enough’ for them.
Younger women from the town were taken into sexual slavery, but the older ones were led behind away before gunfire was heard a short while later.
In the Islamic State’s theology, non-Muslim women raped by Muslim men become Muslim.
Noor (not her real name) was sold into slavery after ISIS overran her village in the Iraqi province of Sinjar. The 22-year-old says the militant who picked her out raped her — but not before trying to justify himself.
“He showed me a letter and said, ‘This shows any captured women will become Muslim if 10 ISIS fighters rape her.’ There was a flag of ISIS and a picture of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.”
After abusing her, he passed her on to 11 of his friends, who also raped her.
The act of rape is considered an Islamic act of worship.
Every time that he came to rape me, he would pray,” said F, a 15-year-old girl who was captured on the shoulder of Mount Sinjar one year ago and was sold to an Iraqi fighter in his 20s
“He kept telling me this is ibadah,” she said, using a term from Islamic scripture meaning worship.
“He said that raping me is his prayer to Allah.
In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.
He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.
When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.
“I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands.
“He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to Allah,” she said in an interview alongside her family in a refugee camp here, to which she escaped after 11 months of captivity.
Since these non-Muslim women weren’t set aside as slaves, they wouldn’t be made “Muslim” or serve as a conduit for the horrifying “act of worship” being practiced by ISIS Muslim Supremacists. And so ISIS did to them what it does to non-Muslims. It killed them. Just as it did the people in Paris.
To understand this, it helps to know two things about Islam.
1. Mohammed said, “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers are women.”
2. His final command was the ethnic cleansing of Christians and Jews. Yazidis, who are considered even lower than Christians and Jews are deemed polytheists and killed outright. As the Koran says, “Kill the polytheists wherever you find them”.
That’s all ISIS was doing. It has innovated in some areas, but the mass murder of non-Muslims was a pre-existing feature of Islam. The mass rape of non-Muslim women was a pre-existing feature of Islam. The enslavement of non-Muslim women was a pre-existing feature of Islam. These women were not deemed useful as slaves. They would not be useful for a Jihadist looking to “worship” Allah.
So they were murdered. As countless innocent non-Muslims had been murdered before them for over a thousand years by the conquering armies of Islam. Until the world wakes up.
