As ISIS prepares to destroy another priceless ancient city, it is adding to its atrocities in the rape and enslavement of Yazidi and Christian girls and women in Iraq. Various news sites are reporting that the Islamic militants are celebrating the holy month of Ramadan by holding a contest to memorize the Koran. The top three prizes are girl slaves or “sibyl.”
The fundamentalist Sunni group follows the Koran literally and thus believes that Muslim men have the right to female slaves. The announcement was made on Twitter and lists money prizes for those not receiving female slaves. It tells competitors to come to one of four mosques including the “Mosques of Abu Bakr el-Sadiq, The Mosque of Osama Bin Laden, The Mosque of Abu Musab el-Zarqawi or The Mosque of el-Taqwa, and listed prizes, including “slave girls” and Syrian currency amounting to $500 and less. It concludes with “We ask the great lord to make your life easier and to grant you with what he loves and what pleases him.”
In any other war, such stories would be dismissed as wildly manufactured and untrue. However, ISIS appears intent on shocking the world and conveying that it will not yield to international criticism in its creation of its view of a pure Islamic state. The enslavement and rape of Christian and Yazidi girls is well-documented. Indeed, ISIS has published price guidelines for such captives with women 40 and 50 years old sold for just $40, girls between 10 and 20 years old auctioned for $129 each, and children under 10 commanding higher prices. A United Nation envoy has documented girls and women being traded for as little as a pack of cigarettes as they are passed around ISIS fighters as war prizes.

Reblogged this on New Tunisia TV.
This behavior passes for normal in the Islamic world and every American is not Islamophobic? This is patently unacceptable by even the most elementary definition of civilized behavior.
That’s quite the holy god these munchkins in black follow. Rape, torture slavery… How god-honoring is all that. Oh wait. Mo was a pedo.
I disagree. Being a good citizen in the United States would include voting for president. When there is only an illusion of choice, I may choose not to vote. I’m not being a good U.S. Citizen, but because I think either selection for president would be destructive (the same as always) to the world on Earth, then I’m choosing to be a world citizen. I’m not proud that we can say we’ve killed over 10,000 people in the last few months.
By your standards, I’m probably a taker (law school loan for my six-figure earning professors). I did finish a BA in less than three years without any debt. I even embraced the imperialism that still exists in the U.S. from France as a member of the Pierre Laclede Honors College. What do you think?
TJustice – Pierre Laclede Honors College is supposed to be a 4-year track, how did you do it in 3? Or did they offer you a lot of independent studies?
I stay because I adore many cities in the U.S. (Hey, St. Louis!), I speak American English, I was born here, and I have many comforts here. Lastly, I don’t have the wealth to travel around the world and live in different countries.
Thank you for the correction. (I, along with others)
Haha I thought pluralism existed and I could think and voice what I wish without being disenfranchised? That doesn’t even happen on this site, look at your post.
I happen to love my fellow countrymen and countrywomen. And indeed I love and admire some of what our Founding Fathers left for us. I don’t dispute that I live off many perks being a U.S. citizen (why the standard of review is different, we have more privilege). And I enjoy many of these perks, including some freedom of speech and movement and many great univiersities – it’s wonderful!! I also understand that I receive these privileges from a rather brutal history and warped social structure.
People on here trip over one another to proclaim patriotism for the United States – that’s not me and will likely never be me (I’d rather trip over one another to proclaim who is most humane). But I’m still human, and I’m still an American – as qualified for citizenship as you or JT or any person on here. And I still enjoy the fruits of being on this beautiful land with a pretty high standard of living. I don’t doubt why many people love America!! (I just look at both sides of this “dream” there is a corresponding “nightmare” for many). I wish to be a good citizen of the world.
My problem is conferring deference to our government (and the men in charge of it) which does so little good. Another problem is that free thought generally can’t be bound up with nationalism.
Nonetheless, I’ll still give it up for my native land: U.S.A…….U.S.A, U.S.A., U.S.A.!!!
TJustice – one should be a good citizen of one’s country before one is a good citizen of the world. In this world there are givers and there are takers. Which are you?
Your life, not you life.
If you are so disenfranchised and so convinced of the America’s lack of exceptionalism, the obvious questions are:
WHY IS IT THAT YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE HERE?
WHY IS IT THAT YOU SPEND YOU LIFE IN A COUNTRY THAT YOU SO OBVIOUSLY DESPISE AND DETEST?
WHY IS IT THAT YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVERY PERK AND OPPORTUNITY GRANTED YOU IN THIS SYSTEM, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO ATTEND LAW SCHOOL, YET YOU BASH THE COUNTRY AT EVERY TURN?
IN WHAT UTOPIAN COUNTRY WOULD YOU RATHER LIVE AND WHY AREN’T YOU THERE?
IF YOU FIND THIS COUNTRY SO DISTASTEFUL, WHY DO YOU REMAIN?
Thank you for being another voice of reason and reality.
Religion poisons everything!
And, while I’m at it, can you all please get over your nonsensical sensitively to curse words. Just like demons, devils, and gods, curses are myths. Therefore, there is no such thing as a curse word. They are just sounds, people. Get over it.
Appreciate the post. Sex trafficking is actually a very serious issue in the States. Just because it doesn’t happen to people’s daughters on here, does not mean it doesn’t exist. #KnowledgeisPower #BetterThanPropaganda
I get that people on here, especially authors, generally adopt the posture of American Exceptionalism. Me, and many prominent free-thinkers disagree.
I discussed not seeing any posts on HERE about sex trafficking. Thus proving the concern on this post is not for that particular issue, but rather to propagandize about ISIS and our fight against them.
It’s I disagree, not me disagree.
Example: I, along with others, happen to disagree.
