Raping Women in the Name of Islam

A fatwa allows the jihadis to have sexual intercourse with women who fall captive during war.

While jihadis in Syria are importing girls from Tunisia to satisfy their sexual needs, their colleagues in Libya are kidnapping and raping women.

Last week, the father of two British women of Pakistani origin said that his daughters were gang raped in front of him by Muslim fundamentalists in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi.

The father, Awadh al-Barassai, said on his Facebook page that the women were part of a humanitarian convoy that was heading to the Gaza Strip.

He said that the women were raped in front of him after being kidnapped by Muslim extremists. He condemned the crime as a “horrible act.”

According to reports in the Arab media, the two women were gang raped in accordance with a fatwa [Islamic religious decree] issued by Jordanian Salafi Sheikh Yasser Ajlouni.

Ajlouni’s fatwa allows the jihadis to have sexual intercourse with women who fall captive during war.

The women who were raped in Libya obviously had not been aware of the fatwa.

That they were part of a human convoy headed to help Muslims in the Gaza Strip did not prevent Libya’s jihadis from perpetrating their crime.

The “pro-Palestinian” groups in charge of the convoy must feel a bit embarrassed about this crime. That is perhaps why they have been trying to hide the case from the eyes of Muslims and the international community.

What happened to the two women in Libya is a big disgrace not only to Islam, but to all those who sympathize with fundamentalists and terrorists, including the “scholars” and “sheikhs” who authorize such crimes.

Moderate Muslims who fail to strongly condemn the Muslim terrorists and rapists also bear responsibility for the crimes that are being committed in the name of Islam.

The gang rape in Libya will also cause tremendous damage to the Palestinians of the Gaza Strip. As of now, families of “pro-Palestinian” activists around the world will have to think ten times before sending their daughters on humanitarian aid convoys.

  1. Typical Muslim behavior which is enforce by the Coran. But also these women got a painful lesson:do not go and help these people in Gaza.Now they sure know what Muslims are all about.

  2. Gil Gilman says:

    It should be revealing to all that what the Qur'an approves and justifies can be claimed as an embarrassment to Muslims. This essentially means that most Muslims, exist in name only, as a cultural phenomena, when the more difficult portions to digest, of their own document of faith, prove unacceptable to the masses.

  3. Jim Nichols says:

    These women were there to help Muslims and were raped doing so…. makes you wonder about helping the Muslims doesn't it الله أكبر shouted seems less to me…البحث عن الله maybe or والله كنت معاقبة.. perhaps we should pull out all aid and just let them be… after all Muslims are and always have been angry over something… maybe the next terrorist activity is ordained as from Allah by a fatwa we need to just nuke several of their citys… in the name of Allah…

  4. Jim Nichols says:

    Do you condone this act? if so you are a pig…

  5. This is absolutely horrible.

  6. Christian Hahn says:

    Who allows raping? Go **** yourself and die as quickly as possible!

  7. the spoils of war mongers..i don't want these violent to….be given asylum in my country.

  8. i don't want to see any city being nuked….when the cities are on fire with the burning flesh of men….sang B.D. who in their right mind would do that to our fellow man/woman

  9. Grace Acosta says:

    Bride Coughlan , in this case I'd call it a mercy killing. It's got to be better than the lives they're living now. We put down rabid dogs, don't we?

  10. Omar Rao says:

    This act of brutality cannot be compromised in any way, religiously, socially, or in any other way, its the worst crime, no so called 'Islam' or so called 'fatwa' ever allowed or permitted this! The incidents might have happened to be true, but the way it is attached with Islam or Islamic fatwa, its condemnable, being a muslim I know that there is no justification for this nor it has anything to do with Islam. Its totally biased and misguiding towards the preachings of Islam.

  11. Omar Rao says:

    Mr. Liad 100% misguiding, while sitting in Israel trying his best propaganda to spread hatred and manoeuvre voilence against Islam & Muslims, everything he has quoted, its invalid, false! I'm sure he is not a Muslim! Study Qur'an and Hadith yourself before believing on someone blindly, You will know everything with reference, hope you got my point! thanks.

  12. Fatima Arend says:

    A sad state of affairs

  13. Jim Nichols says:

    People there to help them … were tortured and raped… Who in their right mind would call that religion covered by a fatma? Screw them … one person dies and a couple hundred thousand of them die maybe they might think better of their actions the next time.. If you Bride Coughlan were my wife and were raped, tortured and killed by anyone I would avenge your passing…

How can you run away from Israel and all the things that have shaped your life?

It’s as if Hamas has pulled a page out of Pharaoh’s handbook.

“Am HaNetzach Eino Mefached Mi Derech Aruka” (An eternal people doesn’t fear the long journey).

Isn’t it comforting to know that our God loves life, grants life, and promises eternal life?

With a loud and strong voice we must say “no” to individuals who take the law into their own hands.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmud Abbas (R) meets with Hamas leader, Khaleed Meshaal (L) in Cairo on February 23, 2012. They were hugging about an earlier unity deal that failed.

Hamas seems to have reached the conclusion that the reconciliation pact with Abbas will not do it any good.

Hamas "civil servants" in the streets of Gaza.

The dispute over money between Hamas and Fatah shows that each group signed the reconciliation agreement for its own interests.

While they continue to hate Israel and seek its destruction, many Arabs admire the independence of Israel’s judicial system.

The Palestinian Authority has jailed more than 350 Arabs for “security” reasons in just 2014.

Kerry has literally been “begging” Abbas to agree to the extension of the peace talks.

Abbas and the Arab leaders thumb their noses at U.S. conditions, instead they set their own.

Even if Abbas is forced — under U.S. Pressure and threats — to make concessions, the Palestinians will not “relinquish their rights.”

Palestinians are worried that Daesh terrorists will perpetrate atrocities against those who oppose their ideology and activities.
