Last weekend, Kurdish authorities told reporters that Islamic State forces had released approximately 200 Yezidi prisoners, mostly sick and elderly people. The captives had been held at the Islamic State-controlled city of Tal’Afar after being abducted from their villages in the Sinjar area in northwest Iraq.
According to the Kurds, the jihadists released the captives because caring for the prisoners had become a burden.
However, the jihadists continue to hold young women and girls captive. And there is compelling evidence that the Islamist army is enslaving young women and girls in forced marriages that are characterized by rape, confinement and physical abuse.
In a flagrant violation of international law, the Islamic State is using sexual violence as a weapon of war to subdue occupied regions of Iraq and to systematically destroy indigenous communities.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 1820, passed in 2008, condemns the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war. The resolution acknowledged that “women and girls are particularly targeted by the use of sexual violence, including as a tactic of war to humiliate, dominate, instill fear in, disperse and/or forcibly relocate civilian members of a community or ethnic group.”

Rape and slavery may be in violation of international law but it is not in violation of the sunnah of Mohammed. Or sharia law. Read the article “The Revival of Slavery Before the Hour” crusade.pdf in ISIS’ magazine and you will learn the Islamic doctrinal truth.
