These terrible actions are why books like The Girl Who Escaped ISIS are so important, they bring to light what terrible actions occur in these situations, furthermore they raise more awareness for the tragedies that still go on today. In Farida's situation she was bought by many men in ISIS, all believing in their religion and that what they are doing is right. Before being raped in one situation, her captor began to pray, she said that, "the particularly religious ones commonly did this before taking a woman, thereby celebrating their rape as a form of worship." (Khalaf 148). What is happening to these girls is a horrible act, but these men are truly seeing that what they are doing is honoring their god. This isn't only seen in the book, real situations like this occur. The men believe that raping woman is a religious act. A 12 year old girl, being held a sex slave by ISIS, said, one man while raping her stated that "according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to
The abuse and rape of thousands of women, mainly Yazidi and some Christians, has become an integral part of ISIS and its terrorism (Callimachi 2015; Malcolm 2015). The Yazidi people are a religious minority who live in the northern mountainous region of Iraq
In the New York Times article, “Jihad and Girl Power: How ISIS Lured 3 London Girls,” Katrin Benhold composed how 16-year-old Khadiza Sultana and 15-year-old Amira Abase and Shamima Begum left their home, Bethnal Green, East London to Syria, join the terrorist organization ISIS. It all began when Khadiza had not returned home one evening, and her older sister, Hamlima Khanom, was worried about where she had been. After filing a complaint for her sister, the Metropolitan Police, had reported that she had been last seen in Turkey for her flight to Istanbul, along with her two friends. The trio became known as the, “troubling phenomenon: young women attracted to…jihadi, girl-power subculture” (Benhold). The troubled trio slowly started to show
“The Girl who escaped Isis: This is my story,” is a January 21, 2016 autobiography written by Farida Khalaf with Andrea C. Hoffmann about Farida Khalaf’s self-experiences during the war of Isis. Farida is a young Yazidi woman who is taken from her home as well as the rest of her family in the beginning of the book. The town that Khalaf is from has Peshmerga soldiers. These men are used to protect borders of connecting countries and used to keep armies like Isis out. The Peshmerga are not strong enough to keep Isis out and Khalaf’s family and the other Yazidi families are forced to give up all weapons and personal belongings to Isis soldiers. Isis uses the woman and girl children as a form of their own “fun.” Their type of fun is raping the
(CNN)Dozens of Yazidi women captured and enslaved by ISIS in 2014 have been moved from the Iraqi city of Mosul to Syria, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The monitoring group and US military officials have said ISIS militants are fleeing Mosul and heading for Raqqa, Syria, the de facto capital of ISIS, as Iraqi-led forces push to free the key Iraqi city from the terror group. Dozens of ISIS families have already arrived in Raqqa, the observatory said. Ethnic cleansing by ISIS has displaced, killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Yazidis, members of an ancient ethnic and religious minority. Modern-day Iraq is the traditional homeland of the Yazidis. Islamic militants captured thousands of Yazidi women and children, and killed the men.
Beside that, The other Yazidis, who stayed alive under the control of IS's criminals, suffered a lot, as their ladies were brutally enslaved, and their children were forced to convert their religion into the radical Islam.
This article was about the Nigerian school girls that were kidnapped by Boko Haram about two years ago. The author wrote about how the search for the girls isn’t over as well as how the girls rescues are being planned, but the military and government officials from America are afraid that if they attempt to rescue one group of the girls the other will suffer because of it. African officials are afraid that Boko Haram is making the school girls become suicide bombers or giving them the option to become suicide bombers to escape the lives they are facing. They believe that the girls are choosing to be suicide bombers to escape the lives of being trapped, used for childbearing and abused that they have been forced into.
These mahuajirat are then trained and instructed to carry out suicide missions in the West, according to leaked ISIS documents” (“Sally Jones”). Jones played an extremely fundamental role in recruiting and training more women to become suicide bombers. She taught the women how to become killers and emphasized how they should not be afraid to die for their cause. She helped ISIS expand while also increasing terrorism in Europe, especially within the United Kingdom. Contrastingly, the Black Widows are another female terrorist group who became well-known after an attack in 2000, when a woman drove a truck filled with explosives into a Russian Special Forces building. Since the explosion, these women have been causing terror throughout Russian territory, each using suicide bombing as their method. The motive behind these attacks were emotional, but also religious. These women originally became members of this group because they were promised a key role in the holy war. After falling in love with fellow terror recruits, their loved ones commit suicide, stripping the women of everything they
Over the past decade, armed conflict has escalated Iraq and Syria; subsequently, violence against women has become prevalent among members of the Islamic State. High-ranking officials have normalized the systematic enslavement of thousands of women and have revitalized the practice of sexual slavery in the region. In her essay, “Redeeming Slavery,” Kecia Ali attributes this phenomenon to the Islamic State’s attempted renewal of religious sentiments; even though she disputes claims that this practice represents a correct interpretation of Islamic beliefs, Ali argues that the widespread normalization of sexual slavery is at least portrayed by leaders as a return to the original beliefs and practices of early Muslim authorities. Jessica Stern, in her essay, “Response to Kecia Ali,” agrees with Ali that religious scholars ought not attempt to judge IS’s actions as Islamic or un-Islamic; however, she fundamentally disagrees about the nature and origin of the militant group’s practice of modern slavery. Stern instead attributes it to political expediency and practicality, emphasizing that the allure of sex serves as an important recruitment tool for the group. Though they disagree about the nature of the Islamic State’s relationship to slavery, Ali and Stern both agree that the attempt to situate IS on a rigid binary of Islamic or un-Islamic is problematic and
Saleh Abu-Yousef, a 32-year-old Christian fighter who helped liberate Qaraqosh, said the ISIS militants used their church’s courtyard for target practice. The Islamist fighters also showed no respect for the Christian site and even beheaded a statue of Jesus Christ. The inside walls were burnt and covered with ISIS graffiti.
In recent decades, the terrorist group known as ISIS emerged in the Middle East and has harassed many Christians ever since. Before the emergence of this group, Iraq was home to the largely diverse city of Mosul, but, “in the summer of 2014[,] ISIS blitzkrieged its way into northern Iraq,” marking “Christian houses with the Arabic… ‘N’ for the derogatory term Nazarene,” forcing them to either
Despite possible misrepresentation of religions, the facts do not change. People of Christian faith have been persecuted by them. In 2010, in Mosul, a 55-year-old Christian father was shot down in cold blood. In that same year, in Dyie, Nigeria, thirteen more Christian villagers were massacred by Muslim raiders in an overnight attack, including a mother and two children burned to death. Victims also had their tongues cut out. In the city of Dogo, Nigeria, Over five-hundred Christians, mostly women and children, were hacked to death by Muslim raiders with machetes in a night-time attack on their village. The killers yelled 'Allah Akbar,' as they chopped. In Lahore, Pakistan, a Christian family is terrorized in their home by a Muslim gang. One
What kind of a world is this for kids to grow up in? Children kidnapped by Isis are Beheaded, Crucified, Enslaved, and used as Soldiers, this need to be put to a stop. Children are being beheaded, crucified and used as soldiers. Children and women are being enslaved. This needs to be put to a stop.
In the article,”Syria’s Secret LIbrary” by Mike Thomson, a young girl named Islam said that it is very hard living their with the war going on and that she stays inside reads, and plays games to help her ignore the pain in her stomach from hunger (4). In Syria it is very dangerous to go outside and just walk around, but when someone is underground it is much more safer than being above. Knowing this 14 year-old Amjad still goes out to the “Secret Library” to make sure it’s ok (5).
justify their actions. This very sickening to read ,but in their country it 's being advocated as okay within confined lines.“A growing body of internal policy memos and theological discussions has established guidelines for slavery, including a lengthy how-to manual issued by the Islamic State Research and Fatwa Department just last month. Repeatedly, the ISIS leadership has emphasized a narrow and selective reading of the Quran and other religious rulings to not only justify violence, but also to elevate and celebrate each sexual assault as spiritually beneficial, even virtuous.”They are not treated as humans but instead are treated as meat.“Right away, the fighters separated the men from the women,” she said. She, her mother and sisters were first taken in trucks to the nearest town on Mount Sinjar. “There, they separated me from my mom. The young, unmarried girls were forced to get into buses.” This article was definitely a tough read because it 's hard to stomach another human being going through this on
