ISLAMIC STATE ISSUES FATWA ON HOW TO PROPERLY R*PE ENSLAVED WOMEN, GIRLS


Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when “owners” of women enslaved by the extremist group can have s*x with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females. Huffingtonpost has more:

The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State’s previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said. It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the s*xual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

The fatwa was among a huge trove of documents captured by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid targeting a top Islamic State official in Syria in May. Reuters has reviewed some of the documents, which have not been previously published. Among the religious rulings are bans on a father and son having s*x with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having s*x with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as “part of a joint ownership.”

The United Nations and human rights groups have accused the Islamic State of the systematic abduction and r*pe of thousands of women and girls as young as 12, especially members of the Yazidi minority in northern Iraq. Many have been given to fighters as a reward or sold as s*x slaves. Far from trying to conceal the practice, Islamic State has boasted about it and established a department of “war spoils” to manage slavery. Reuters reported on the existence of the department on Monday.
