We have yet another insight into what passes for Sharia-based feminism in the Middle East. This week we already saw an Obedient Wives’ Club calling for women to service their husbands like “high-priced prostitutes” to fulfill their duties under the Koran (Qu’ran). Now, Kuwaiti politician Salwa al Mutairi has called for the use of sex slaves, or Jawari, to satisfy the needs of “decent, devout and virile Kuwaiti men” and discourage adultery.
Salwa al Mutairi suggests using female prisoners from war-torn countries like Chechnya because being used a sex slaves would be an improvement to their lives. She notes that sex slaves are perfectly acceptable under the moral code of Sharia law and is not considered haram (or forbidden). She cites 8th century Muslim leader Haroun al-Rashid (right). Known as Haroun the Upright and Haroun the Rightly Guided) he was believed to have had 2,000 mistresses.
She has assured followers that she consulted with religious scholars in Mecca who assured her that the use of sex slaves are morally acceptable under Islam: “They said, that’s right, the only solution for a decent man who has the means, who is overpowered by desire and who does not want to commit fornication, is to acquire jawari.”
However, she insists that this can be done in a modern and enlightened way: she wants to limit sex slaves to captives older than 15. Now there is a moral code.
What is always astonishing is the obsession with sex of these religious Islamic advocates who denounce our culture is morally corrupt. It appears that adultery is a far greater moral danger to Islam than is rape and slavery.
