“Scholars have mentioned that desertion of slavery had led to increase in adultery, fornication” quote ISIS magazine justifying slavery.
As my colleagues and I have been explaining for years, sex slavery is a religious right in Islam. Kidnapping and enslaving girls as sex slaves is sanctioned by the Qur’an in multiple places — not one of the Muslim groups’ condemnations of the abductions addresses that or explains how it is a misunderstanding of Islam. Neither do their clueless leftist apologists.
This is all according to Islamic law (sharia).
“Prosperous are the believers who in their prayers are humble and from idle talk turn away
and at almsgiving are active and guard their private parts save from their wives and what their right hands own then being not blameworthy.” (Quran 23:1-6)
Those whom their “right hands own” (Quran 4:3, 4:24, 33:50) are slaves, and inextricable from the concept of Islamic slavery as a whole is the concept of sex slavery, which is rooted in Islam’s devaluation of the lives of non-Muslims. The Quran stipulates that a man may take four wives as well as hold slave girls as sex slaves. These women are captured in wartime and are considered the spoils of war. Islam avoids the appearance of impropriety, declaring that the taking of these sex slaves does not constitute adultery if the women are already married, for their marriages are ended at the moment of their capture. A manual of Islamic law directs: “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” (Reliance of the Traveller, o9.13).
Ben Affleck is this spokesman for this vicious ideology. Why doesn’t he send his daughters to live under the sharia? The man made Argo, for goodness sake, and he still doesn’t get it??
CNN assures us that sex slavery is “rejected by the Muslim world at large as a perversion of Islam.” How do they know? Have they pursued the story? Have they looked at what is going on in Muslim countries? Muslim slavery of blacks accounts for 20% of the population of Mauritania.

“ISIS states its justification for the enslavement of women,” By Salma Abdelaziz, CNN
updated 1:02 PM EDT, Mon October 13, 2014
(CNN) — In a new publication, ISIS justifies its kidnapping of women as sex slaves citing Islamic theology, an interpretation that is rejected by the Muslim world at large as a perversion of Islam.
“One should remember that enslaving the families of the kuffar — the infidels — and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah, or Islamic law,” the group says in an online magazine published Sunday.
The title of the article sums up the ISIS point of view: “The revival (of) slavery before the Hour,” referring to Judgment Day.
The fourth edition of the group’s English-language digital magazine called “Dabiq” said that female members of the Yazidi sect, an ethnically Kurdish minority living mostly in Iraq, may legitimately be captured and forcibly made concubines or sexual slaves.
The rationalization for a return to slavery — repudiated around the world — coincided with the release of a Human Rights Watch report on crimes committed by ISIS against the Yazidis in Iraq based on interviews with 76 displaced people in Dohuk.
“The Islamic State’s litany of horrific crimes against the Yazidis in Iraq only keeps growing,” said Fred Abrahams, special adviser at Human Rights Watch. “We heard shocking stories of forced religious conversions, forced marriage, and even sexual assault and slavery — and some of the victims were children.”
A 17-year-old kidnapped girl named Adlee recounts how a large bearded man forced her into a home in Falluja, where she was beaten and endured violent sexual advances before escaping two days later, the Human Rights Watch report reads.
ISIS forced tens of thousands of Yazidis to flee their homes in August when the extremists stormed many of the community’s towns and cities in Iraqi Kurdistan. Displaced families and monitoring groups reported jihadists kidnapped hundreds of Yazidi women and girls, and many were sold or given away to militants as “spoils of war.”
The terror group’s 56-page propaganda publication also boasts of a “massacre against (Kurdish) PKK soldiers” alongside graphic images of slain men dressed in fatigues. On the next page, ISIS glorifies its “Services for Muslims” with photographs of a care home for the elderly and a cancer treatment center for children.
Just like Hamas and Hezb’Allah.
The issue, titled “The Failed Crusade,” includes an alleged copy of slain American journalist Steven Sotloff’s last letter to his mother and says the victim’s Jewish identity warranted his beheading by ISIS.
Another ISIS captive, British journalist John Cantlie, allegedly pens the last section of the magazine, saying he expects to be killed soon, and “unless something changes very quickly and very radically, I await my turn.”
