Kurdish news outlets have reported the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) executed 250 girls and women who refused to become their sex slaves or enter temporary marriages with terrorists.
“At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’s request,” announced Said Mamuzini, the Kurdish Democratic Party spokesman.
The Islamic State has implemented this practice since they took over large areas of Syria and Iraq for their self-declared caliphate.
In December 2014, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights claimed that the Islamic State murdered 150 women because they refused to marry or engage in sexual acts with the terrorists.
“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” said the Ministry. “Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats.”
The militants buried the victims in mass graves in the city. The families who left lost many children after the militants stranded them in the desert.
Eight months later, another report from Mosul surfaced that said the Islamic State killed another 19 women who refused to have sex with terrorists.
“Isis [has] executed 19 women in the city of Mosul during the past two days,” declared Mamuzini. “The penalty decision came on the background of the refusal to participate in the practice of sexual jihad.”
Militants claim they adhere to a very conservative interpretation of Islam, one that apparently allow them to run brothels and keep sex slaves. They allow women from the West to perform “sexual jihad” for the terrorists. A 2013 edict allows this behavior “to boost the morale of fighters.” Islamic State issued its own edict in June after conquering towns in Iraq. Jihadists set up brothels filled with kidnapped females and placed British women in charge. One Yazidi sex slave begged the West to bomb the brothel at which she was held to end her suffering. A video in November showed militants laughing and joking about buying female Yazidi slaves.
The Islamic State issued a manual that teaches militants how to treat their female slaves.
“It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property, which can be disposed of,” wrote the author.
The author writes that men can use the females as sex slaves only when the master is the exclusive owner of that slave.
“If she is a virgin,” the guide explains, “he [her master] can have intercourse with her immediately after taking possession of her. However, is [sic] she isn’t, her uterus must be purified [first]…”
It also encourages pedophilia.
“It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse.”
