Islamic Jihadis Stone Two Women to Death in Syria

StoningA cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground. When residents gathered, the fighters told them to carry out the sentence: Stoning to death for the alleged adulteress.

None in the crowd stepped forward, said a witness to the event in a northern Syrian city. So the jihadi fighters, mostly foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away.

“Even when she was hit with stones she did not scream or move,” said an opposition activist who said he witnessed the stoning near the football stadium and the Bajaa garden in the city of Raqqa, the main Syrian stronghold of the Islamic State group.

The July 18 stoning was the second in a span of 24 hours. A day earlier, 26-year-old Shamseh Abdullah was killed in a similar way in the nearby town of Tabqa by Islamic State fighters. Both were accused of having sex outside marriage.

According to the Reliance of the Traveller, the go-to book on sharia law, the Islamic State jihadis were entirely within their right to stone these women if they committed adultery.

Honeymoon in the Caliphate with a Jihadist Husband

ISIS TerroristsIf a woman wants to marry an Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, jihadist she is in luck. The terrorists opened an office in al-Bab in Syria “where single women and widows can register to marry” the radical Islamists. After she registers, the man will travel to the woman’s house and propose like the complete gentleman he is.

These are the men who imposed Sharia law in the areas of Syria and Iraq they conquered.

Sounds just peachy, wrapped in a black polyester burqa in the hot Iraqi summer, sitting in the back of the un-airconditioned bus. They can read the Koran, memorizing Sura 4:34 about wife beating for entertainment.

A fantastic way to start a marriage.

Sex Slaves in the New Iraqi Caliphate

Alleged photo of syrian women captivesA . . . .  picture recently appeared on several Arabic social media and websites.   Its caption says: “First female slave market in Deir ez-Zur,” a Syrian region that is 20 percent Christian and is currently occupied by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Regardless of its origin or authenticity, it’s true significance is that it perfectly relays what we do know is going on in Syria — from fatwas permitting men to rape women, to fatwas calling on women to engage in the sex jihad, including against their will.

The jihadis are demanding sexual satisfaction and rewards for their sacrifices, and they are getting it.

This is a reminder of what Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini, a popular Salafi preacher in Egypt, said on Hikma TV back in 2011.  He explained that after jihadi conquests, the properties and persons of “infidel” inhabitants are to be seized as ghanima, or “spoils of war,” distributed among the Muslim jihadis or taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold.”

Cover Everything Up Says ISIS – Huge Blow to Women’s Rights in Syria

woman-in-full-body-coverThe Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a Syria-based Islamist militant group, has imposed strict rules in Syria’s northern city of Raqqah, after gaining complete control in the beginning of this year.

Rules established by ISIS in a statement released by the group last year include banning music, singing and smoking, as well as making head-to-toe coverings for women mandatory.

According to the new regulations, which carry the threat of harsh penalties for violators, women must be fully clothed with abaya (a loose fitting cloak commonly worn by Muslim women) the hijab (head covering scarf), niqab (face-covering veil) and gloves.

Additionally, women may not walk down the street without a male relative present, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

Jihadist Rules for Syrian Women

Syrian women cryingA Syrian News Clip  recounts the following new laws ISIL [ jihad terrorist group] promulgated in a statement it issued soon after taking over Raqqah:

  • Women are banned from sitting on chairs (as reported verbatim).
  • All women are obligated to wear Islamic attire, such as the niqab and burqa (which cover the entire body and face); sweaters, jeans, and makeup of any kind are strictly banned.
  • Female clothing is not to be displayed in shop windows, and only women are allowed to work there; if a man is found on the grounds the shop faces closure.
  • Women are banned from seeing male gynecologists (thus severely hampering their ability to see doctors, most of whom are men in Syria). 
  • Smoking—cigarettes, water pipes, etc.—is banned.  Violators could face the death penalty; shops found selling cigarettes are to be burned to the ground.

These terrorist groups follow the fundamentalist Salafi doctrine of Islam that adheres to the strict rules of the Islamic law of sharia where women are chattel, kept at home, covered when allowed to go out with a male relative in public and beaten by their husbands. Asad, a member of a heretical Islamic sect, is a dictator but at least he allows more freedom for women under his tyrannical rule than the Salafi Islamists. Sad, isn’t it?

 

Muslimas’ Freedom Curtailed by Syrian Rebels

Women in Burqas in SyriaFemales in Daash (Salafi jihad fighters) controlled areas of Aleppo and elsewhere are being prevented from wearing jeans and sweaters and must wear only the Islamic dress Abaya and Barkaa (burka).

They are forbidden from putting on any make-up, and now, as of two weeks ago, to even leave their homes without a male escort.

Some barber shops for men are being shuttered in order to prevent the shortening of hair and ‘modern’ haircuts. Barrettes for young people are also forbidden.

It is now forbidden in Daash areas to display any sign or advertisements for cosmetics and skin care products in women’s hairdressing shops. Violators are subject to penalties of 70 lashes. Any business that employs women must have two work-day shifts, one for men and a separate one exclusively for female employees;

No women’s clothing can be displayed in shop windows. In the event a woman should enter a tailor’s shop, the shop must shut its doors to men until she leaves.

The Daash militia has long prevented women from seeking medical attention from male doctors, but recently it put into place prohibitions against women visiting doctors of either sex.

Also it is not permissible for a woman to wear orthodontic devices such as teeth braces because straight teeth might attract men, and in any case their bodies are under the stewardship of their husbands or fathers only.

This is the real, by-the-books Islam, following the Sharia and doctrine of total apartheid and gender discrimination. The women of Aleppo will soon be indistinguishable from those of Afghanistan.

Sexual Violence in Syria

Anguished Syrian womanSexual violence against women has skyrocketed in Syria since the outbreak of the two-and-half year civil war, say rights campaigners, who in the chaotic circumstances of the brutal conflict have been trying to document cases.  And advocates for women say all too often incidents of sexual violence against women are swept under the carpet because of a sense shame or fear victims will be killed to save their families’ honor.

[ . . . ]
Earlier this week, to coincide with the International Day to End Violence Against Women, the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network issued a report warning that Syria’s war has “created a context ripe for violence against women, including sexual violence.” The report detailed cases of women having been raped in detention, used as human shields during military operations and kidnapped to pressure and humiliate family members. Sexual violence and rape has been used as a weapon of war to terrify and punish, says the report.

Syrian Girls Sold to Rich Muslims

Sahar  wished she could slap that Saudi sheikh, just like she had slapped taxi drivers asking her to provide them with young Syrian girls. But instead she just said “no” and told him that if he shows up at that mosque again she will cut his beard. Then she says she left, slamming the door. It wasn’t just an accident, neither was it just one sheikh who asked her to serve as a matchmaker.

A few months later, another Saudi sheikh approached her at the mosque: He wanted a young Syrian girl to marry and he was wondering whether she could find him a bride, for a fee, of course. Sometimes she gets such proposals from taxi drivers. “Once, I was in a taxi and the driver approached me. There was this Lebanese sheikh who wanted to marry a Syrian girl. ‘He will give you money, and he will also give that woman money,’ he told me. I slapped him, as usual,” she recalled.
[ . . . ]
But not many think like Sahar does. Young women get sold off for a week to men willing to pay. Taxi drivers ask around about young girls aged 16-17; deals are made in the streets of Tripoli. “I have refused to do this, but many people don’t.”

Some people make a business out of trafficking women for rich foreigners, says Ayman Hariri, a Syrian activist who settled in Akkar in 2011 when he had to flee Daraa fearing arrest. He used to run an NGO that provided aid for Syrian refugees, but he decided to close it down. Trying to provide aid is difficult, with some aid organizations using their small NGOs to sell 16-year-old girls to their Gulf sponsors in exchange for money.

“I can tell you about someone I know, I met him in person and he offered to bribe me. He posed as a sheikh with a Saudi benefactor. People soon found out his organization was actually what you call a whorehouse: He was getting girls for the Saudi sheikh. If he liked the girl, he would offer $10,000, he would marry her for a week, and then she would go back home with $1,000. The rest was given to the so-called Lebanese sheikh, who now owns a building and has several cars,” Hariri explains.
[ . . . ]
Most NGOs that deal with women’s rights in Lebanon are concerned by the increasing number of early marriages among Syrian refugees. According to UNHCR’s refugee response plan, 10% of Syrian refugee women and Lebanese women in host communities have been exposed to gender-based violence, including early marriage, rape, and domestic violence. To cope with poverty, Syrian girls are married off very early, sometimes for money, sometimes for protection.

Sex Jihad in Syria: Pregnant with AIDS

sex-jihadWhen Ayman Zawahiri’s wife, the al Qaeda successor to Osama bin Ladin, was asked in 2009 about the permissible roles of women in waging jihad she wrote a letter to her “Muslim sisters” encouraging them to leave the fighting to the men and to wage jihad through giving money, Internet support and by training up the next generation of young believers for jihad.
[ . . . ]
While this was the central al Qaeda party line in 2009, it now appears that a new militant jihadi role has emerged for women–at least for Tunisian women who are reportedly going off to Syria to sexually “comfort” the rebels fighting there.
[ . . . ]
While neither ministry gave any figures about the numbers of Tunisian women taking part in “jihad al-nikah” media reports have said hundreds of Tunisian women have gone to Syria for such purposes–some of them perhaps following the hundreds of men who have also been joining militants to battle the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. It appears that the practice of permitting extramarital sexual relations with multiple partners via temporary marriage contracts is viewed by militant jihadi groups affiliated with al Qaeda as a legitimate form of holy war.
[ . . . ]
While their services are likely much appreciated by the rebels receiving them–it does seem it can hardly be good for the women involved.

UPDATE:  The Tunisian newspaper Al Sharaouk (“Sunrise) sheds light on the horrific experiences of one of these girls.

Her name is Lamia, and she’s 19-years-old. While in Syria, she had sex with jihadis fighting to overthrow the secular Bashar Assad regime. Among other nationalities she recalls having slept with were Pakistanis, Afghanis, Libyans, Tunisians, Iraqis, Saudis, and Somalis, all in the context of the “sex jihad.”
[ . . . ]
Lamia confessed that she did not know how many men had sex with her and that all that she remembers is being abused, beaten, and forced to do things “that contradict all sense of human worth.” She also said that she met many Tunisian women including one who died while being tortured for trying to escape.
[ . . . ]
Finally, released back to Tunisia, Lamia has been to a doctor finding that she is five months pregnant. Both she and her unborn are carrying the aids virus.

The Rape of Syrian Christian Girls and Women

Christian-women-in-SyriaSyria’s young Christian women are bearing the biggest brunt of the two-year-old civil war, according to a human rights group.

The report by Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, released by Open Doors USA, estimates there have been more than 100,000 casualties since the war’s beginning in 2011.

Five thousand of those casualties are children under the age of 16.

Open Doors spokesman Jerry Dykstra told WND that a disproportionate number of the casualties are young Christian women and girls.

“The fact is there have been reports of rape of women and girls in Christian communities of Syria. In some of the areas, students stay home from school and church. One report said 5,000 children 16 and below have been killed in the war,” Dykstra said.

International Christian Concern’s Middle East area specialist Todd Daniels says that non-Muslim Christian women are the target of a fatwa, a religious instruction under Islam.

“Women, especially those who are non-Sunni, have been particularly affected by the influx of militant Islamic extremists,” Daniels said. “They have taken to abusing non-Sunni women who are viewed as infidels or worse.”

He said the fatwa is an “example of the kind of ideology that is not only permitting but in some instances even encouraging treatment of these women in what is really an inhumane way.”

The fatwa was issued by Jordan-born Salafi cleric Sheikh Yasir al-Ajlawni, who said Muslims fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad can legally “capture and have sex with all non-Sunni women.”

Daniels says that means the sheik is permitting rape of all non-Muslim women. Even though the fatwa includes all non-Sunni women, he said, Syria’s Christian women are getting the worst treatment.
