Islam, Slavery and Rape

ghBoko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau recently made a video in which he taunted the mothers of the girls he kidnapped and bragged, while praising Allah, how he will sell them on the market.

Frontpage editors have decided to shed light on the Islamic context of Shekau’s barbaric acts and words by reprinting a segment of an interview from our November 23, 2007 issue, in which Dr. Bill Warner discussed the inspiration and sanctioning that Muslims find in Islam for slavery and rape:


Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Bill Warner, the director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) and spokesman for CSPI’s goal is to teach the doctrine of political Islam through its books and it has produced an eleven book series on political Islam. Mr. Warner did not write the CSPI series, but he acts as the agent for a group of scholars who are the authors. The Center’s latest book is The Submission of Women and Slaves, Islamic Duality.

FP: Bill Warner, welcome back to Frontpage Magazine. This is the second part in our two-part series with you on the Center’s most recent book. In the first part we discussed Islam and its doctrine on the submission of women. In this second and final part we will discuss the matter of slavery.

Warner: It is a pleasure to work with Frontpage.

FP: So tell us in general where Islam stands on slavery.

Warner: Islam’s stand on slavery is based on its political principles of submission and duality. The principle of submission could not be clearer. By definition a slave is the most submissive of all people. You become a slave only when you have no more choices. A slave has completely submitted to a master.

The principle of duality is shown by the fact that Islam does not enslave Muslims, only kafirs (non-Muslims). Since only kafirs are enslaved, it assures that more of the world submits to Islam.

Islamic slavery is based on the Trilogy of the Koran, the Sira (Mohammed’s life) and the Hadith (the Traditions of Mohammed). All three texts say that slavery is permitted, ethical, desirable and a virtue. There is not one single negative word about slavery.

Slavery is seen as a process that brings kafirs to Islam. It is a virtue to free slaves, but Mohammed only freed slaves who submitted to Islam. If the kafir slave does not submit, then their children will. So given enough time, slaves convert to Islam. That is one of the reasons that Islam sees slavery as a positive.

Of course, there is another reason that Islam sees slavery as being so “good” and that is the money. Mohammed and the other jihadists made a fortune out of enslaving kafirs. Mohammed used the money for more jihad. So slavery financed the spread of Islam and jihad from the beginning.

FP: What were the ingredients of Mohammed’s own life in terms of slavery?

Warner: Mohammed is the perfect pattern for all humanity and his life was saturated in slavery. When his mother died, it was a freed slave who nursed him. His first wife owned slaves. One of his first converts was a slave. His closest friend, Abu Bakr, traded one of his black kafir slaves for a Muslim who was enslaved by a kafir.

But all of this was small change compared to his envolvement with slavery once he turned to jihad. In his first major battle at Badr, he stood by and prayed as his henchmen beat and tortured captured slaves to get information about the enemy kafirs.

Slaves made Mohammed’s pulpit. Slaves mended his cloths, cooked his food, and did every thing that a slave does for the master. He gave away slaves as gifts and received them as gifts. He went to war to kill the males so that the remaining people would surrender to be sold as slaves. Mohammed sold slaves on both the retail and wholesale markets.

He offered captured slaves their freedom if they would first agree that he was the prophet of Allah. A kafir slave then became a slave of Allah, because all Muslims are slaves of Allah. For a slave, the religion of Mohammed started and ended with slavery.

FP: Can you talk a bit about Islam and sexual slavery?

Warner: All morality in Islam is patterned after the example of Mohammed. Everything that he did and said defines what is permitted or “good”. Mohammed repeatedly sanctioned forced sex (rape) with kafir females after they were captured. The Hadith clearly reports that he got first choice of the women. In one case, he repeatedly demanded one particular woman for himself and swapped two other kafir slave women for his choice. So if Mohammed was involved in the rape of kafirs, then rape is a virtue, not a sin or error.

When Mohammed destroyed the B. Qurayza tribe, all of the adult male Jews were beheaded, so that no husbands were left. Mohammed then took the children and gave them to Muslims to raise as Muslims and he sold off the Jewish women as slaves.

We know from another story that the women were divided into sex slaves and domestic slaves. In one scene, a jihadist is trying to obtain a high ransom for a woman and he is told that her breasts are flat and her mouth is cold, so her value was less. In short, she was only good for work around the house, not in the bedroom.

The Hadith tells of another story where the Muslims used coitus interruptus to avoid impregnating the kafir sex slaves. The reason was purely for business. If the kafir sex slave was pregnant, then she was worth less money.

Islamic doctrine says that kafir women should not be used for prostitutes, only for the pleasure of the master.

When Mohammed attacked the Jews at Khaybar, many moral precedents were set. Sexual slavery received an entire set of rules. Muslims were not to rape pregnant or menstruating women until they had delivered the child or finished their periods. At Khaybar, Mohammed’s god Allah, announced that even married women were fair game for rape.

Mohammed only killed some of the Jews at Khaybar. The male and female survivors were needed to work the land as dhimmis. (The original dhimmis were semi-slaves with no civil rights. Today, dhimmis are ignorant kafirs who apologize for Islam.) Since Islam needed the men to work, husbands were left alive. That was the reason that the Koran said that in this case, even with the husbands looking on, it was good to rape the women.

Sexual slavery was not only fun and profitable for the Muslim men, but rape was a powerful tactic of war, then and today. The women are forced into submission to Muslim men and the husbands are humiliated. Humiliated men are weakened men, so more kafirs were less able to resist Islam.

For some time Mohammed’s favorite sex partner was a Christian slave from Egypt named Mary. One of Mohammed’s wives caught him in some state of intimacy with Mary in the wife’s bedroom and raised hell. Mohammed promised to not do it again and moved Mary to her own apartment in Medina.

Mohammed had received Mary and her sister as gifts. He gave her sister away to a Muslim poet. He was used to giving away sex slaves. He gave several of his top lieutenants kafir sex slaves. Umar, who later became caliph, gave his sex slave to his son. [As an aside, when he was caliph, his son got drunk and Umar beat him to death.]

FP: This institution of Islamic sexual slavery isn’t just a reality of the past is it?

Warner: Everything that has been said up to now is not only history; it is Sunna (the example of the perfect pattern of action and morality found in Mohammed). So today we don’t have a beautiful blonde Christian girl on the block in Mecca, but we have continuous and ongoing rapes by Muslims in kafir cities. This goes on everywhere that Islam goes because it is Sunna.

This is a continuous 1400-year history of jihad. In every detailed history that comes from the original documents from history, rape is a constant. You have to look in the original documents, since our historians refuse to report it in so-called history books.

Rape is Sunna. Rape is not a sin. Rape is permitted and encouraged by Mohammed and the Koran. Islam is the only political system in the world that includes rules for rape and war. Rape is jihad. How good can it get? A Muslim gets to rape a kafir girl and get heaven credits. All jihad is a ticket to Paradise.

The most disgusting aspect of the Islamic rape of kafirs is not the rapes, but the kafir response. Kafirs become dhimmis by ignoring the rapes. I challenge you to find one, even one, mention of Islamic rape in the history books.

Islamic rape is more taboo than the N-word in the media. At least the N-word is acknowledged to exist. Even unicorns exist in media fantasy. But Islamic rape is forbidden to even exist as a fantasy.

And to reach a fevered rant: our so-called “feminist” scholars are absolutely intellectually and morally bankrupt hypocrites. They are traitors to our culture and a shame and a disgrace. They remain silent in the face of heinous crimes against women. They are arch-dhimmis when they refuse to speak of the Sunna, history and current rapes of our daughters, mothers, and sisters.

And our tax dollars support their evil in our public universities.

    Interesting article.
    That may well be the genius of political Islam. Instead of putting religious rules in place to control/marginalize/stamp out the various horrid things human beings do to one another. Islam encourages them, channels and controls it outward–against the “enemy”………… whatever “enemy” you need……..including other Muslims……on whatever pretext you need.

  • American1969

    Disgusting. More from the Religion of Peace.
    And where are Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and other so-called black “leaders”, along with women’s groups, denouncing slavery and the rape of young girls and women?
    The silence is deafening.
    Oh…that’s right…those idiots are too busy promoting a fake “War on Women” because you won’t subsidize their birth control or promote abortion with tax dollars. Or screaming about slavery that took place over one hundred years ago to no one alive today while actual, real slavery is still being practiced in Africa.
    No, lets’ scream about sins of the past that no one alive today is responsible for instead so that we can enrich ourselves and not actually help the community.
    The hypocrisy of the Left never ceases to amaze.
    Liberalism is a psychotic mental disorder.

      Not to mention the slavery of the east bloc. Anyone notice how people of Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Poland, Slovenia, etc. don’t use slavery as an excuse to do crime and to hate other racial groups like so much of black America does?

      What does a Pole, Czech, East German, and other groups who experienced slavery only 23+ years ago think when a black person complains about slavery 150 years ago. Black Americans heard about slavery. The east bloc lived in slavery.

    • Rosasolis

      The silence from the Western World Is indeed DEAFENING!
      When will government representatives from North-America, Europe, and the UN at last wake up and realize that it is a waste of time and money
      to send ” delegations” to have peaceful discussions in countries where
      all hell is breaking loose? In Nigeria, South-Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, etc.,
      the Islam Jihad is spreading like wild-fire! According to the Koran:
      The Ultimate Goal of the Islam is World Domination, and the Islam is
      to be spread amongst all people and lands, with Fire and the Sword!”
      For those who are sceptical, your local library probably has an English
      translation of the Koran.
      The fast-growing Islamic Jihad in the Middle-east and Africa is much worse than the situation with Ukraine and Russia, which has been receiving too
      much attention from Obama and Kerry…while the situation in Africa
      is fast getting out of control and reaching Total Anarchy!

  • Mike Nelson

    Mr Glazov. when i watched your segment on your new bool there was a banner add across the viedo window that had an add that said how to convert to Islam
    your webmaster should check out if your adds have been hijacked. [Hajijacked maybe?]

  • Mike Nelson

    The left will never be critical of Islam as they are cowards and they are afraid of Islam. The Muslims that truly Practice in the Middle East will kill the dhimmi leftists if they ever come to power.

    The Boko Harum are just practicing Islam as the Profit wrote it in the Koran and his followers wrote them in the Hadith [The Sayings of the Profit] which even goses as far as for giving rules on Rapeing dhimmi women. We should hunt these monsters down and kill them.

    • Myrtle Linder

      Islam is a of possession of sick heart and soul created by by Satan. It is an evil desire to control all things, to be in the place of GOD, THE CREATOR. Where GOD rules with love for HIS creations, Islamists hate GOD’S creations and rules with this hate by creating evil against GOD’S laws. Examples: putting Islamist Muslims at the head of this country, forcing schools to kick JESUS CHRIST out and legalizing the abomination homosexuality for the entire county. For Islamist, that is only the beginning.

    • randy harrison

      When Islam takes over the people on the left will pay the same price as those girls. They are scornful of white people who have armed themselves, and naïve. Their fate will be decided by others. You can’t fix stupid.

    Mohammed’s revelations from Allah were a little more self-serving than those received by Jesus.
    Allah tells Mo that Muslim men can have 4 wives and as many sex slaves as they like, but Mo later gets a special message from Allah that he alone can also have as many wives as he likes.
    Mo is caught by one of his wives sleeping with a slave girl in that wife’s bed. Mo promises his angry wife that he will no longer sleep with slave girls. Shortly thereafter, Mo gets a special revelation from Allah that he should not forbid himself anything that Allah has allowed. Further, Allah tells him that an oath may always be broken, so long as one expiates the falsehood by feeding the poor or fasting for a few days.
    Mo, who was an orphan himself, catches sight of his adopted son’s beautiful wife. Shortly thereafter, Mo receives a revelation from Allah telling him that there’s no such thing as adoption, an adopted son is not a son, and a divorced wife is not one’s mother. ( Who ever regards his divorced wife as his mother?) But this revelation is neatly tailored to Mo’s situation. It allows him to marry the soon-to-be divorced wife of his adopted son without any taint of incest, and it forbids the adopted son from mingling with his former wife at family gatherings.

    Governments and churches have risked the integrity of correctness, falling into similar blunder of political correctness, by pitting side by side making this demon-inspired teaching, demon-possessed as comrades at arms. There supposed, should be in no way lifting this religion into the ranks of religions stemmed from the HOLY WRIT like Judaism and Christianity. Islam is an ideology which uses G-D’s HOLY NAME to inflict pain, rob mankind from morals, values and dignity to declare rule over whomever they may physically subjugate. Life of their subjects for them has no worth, therefore, murdering would leave them no qualms, no guilt. They are reduced into (amoral) brutes in human bodies.

  • 1Indioviejo1

    Islam was born in savagery. Anytime someone speaks of “Political Islam” or “Radical Muslims” he is being a tool to the enemy. We used to call fellow travelers, the same ones Lenin called the useful idiots. They are still around today, and now they shill for Islam.

  • Davros11

    Since this is just a simple case of “black on black” crime, why would any of the race baiters (i.e. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louie Farakhan) care! This has no money making implications about it, so it is just to bad for them!

    Everything they’re saying is completely fabricated. Muhammad barely ever had sex, usually once per wife to consummate marriages, treated his slaves justly, and offered their freedom, and he ordered his followers to NEVER kill or harm anyone unless in defense of another person or themselves.

    I’m not saying there aren’t bad Muslims, hell yeah there are, but the things Muslim extremists are doing are no different from Jewish extremists, Hindu extremists, Christian extremists, or any extremist, so don’t blame a religion for evil in the world by fabricating information from biased translations of books that are famously read by a denomination.

    Protecting your loved ones from this incident would really be tough. As a parent, I find it very hard to secure the safety of my children. I am a father of two lovely daughters. Both go to high school. I can’t be with them every single time. Me and my wife go to work everyday. It’s hard to be certain about their whereabouts and situation. Good thing I discovered this amazing application installed on my children’s phones. It has a panic button that my children will press in case of an emergency. As simple as that it will automatically be connected to a 24/7 Response center and if needed, your call can be escalated to the nearest 911 Station. Me, along with my wife and close friends as my children’s safety network, will be notified also through text message or a conference call. I worry less. This can help you too.
