Sex Slavery Horror in Nigeria

article-2620615-1D96060100000578-523_634x382Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Nigerian jihad group named the Congregation of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad and better known as Boko Haram (“Western Education Is Sinful,” or “Books Bad”), has horrified the world by abducting over three hundred schoolgirls and selling them into sex slavery. Shekau has even published a video in which he gloats about the abduction, telling the girls’ grieving families: “I abducted your girls. I will sell them on the market, by Allah….There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.”

Does Allah really say that? The mainstream media is, true to form, steadfastly ignoring Shekau’s references to the acceptability in Islam of sexual slavery, and it’s easy to understand why, given its anxiety always to portray Islam in a favorable light – for the Qur’an really does allow for the owning of sex slaves:

If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you will not be partial. (Qur’an 4:3)

This verse is the basis for Islamic polygamy, allowing a man to take as many as four wives, as long as he believes he is able to “deal justly” with all of them. But justice in these circumstances is in the eye of the beholder. The renowned Qur’an commentator Ibn Kathir says this the requirement to deal justly with one’s wives is no big deal, since treating them justly isn’t the same as treating them equally: “it is not obligatory to treat them equally, rather it is recommended. So if one does so, that is good, and if not, there is no harm on him.”

The verse goes on to say that if a man cannot deal justly with multiple wives, then he should marry only one, or resort to “what your right hands own” — that is, slave girls.

The twentieth-century Qur’an commentator Maulana Bulandshahri explains the wisdom of this practice, and longs for the good old days:

During Jihad (religion war), many men and women become war captives. The Amirul Mu’minin [leader of the believers, or caliph — an office now vacant] has the choice of distributing them amongst the Mujahidin [warriors of jihad], in which event they will become the property of these Mujahidin. This enslavement is the penalty for disbelief (kufr).

He goes on to explain that this is not ancient history:

None of the injunctions pertaining to slavery have been abrogated in the Shari’ah. The reason that the Muslims of today do not have slaves is because they do not engage in Jihad (religion war). Their wars are fought by the instruction of the disbelievers (kuffar) and are halted by the same felons. The Muslim [sic] have been shackled by such treaties of the disbelievers (kuffar) whereby they cannot enslave anyone in the event of a war. Muslims have been denied a great boon whereby every home could have had a slave. May Allah grant the Muslims the ability to escape the tentacles of the enemy, remain steadfast upon the Din (religion) and engage in Jihad (religion war) according to the injunctions of Shari’ah. Amen!

This is by no means an eccentric or unorthodox view in Islam. The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that as they waged jihad warfare against infidels, Muslims would take slaves. He clarified what he meant in a subsequent interview:

…Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars–there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Qur’an 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point–there is no disagreement from any of them. […] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.

Right around the same time, on May 25, 2011, a female Kuwaiti activist and politician, Salwa al-Mutairi, also spoke out in favor of the Islamic practice of sexual slavery of non-Muslim women, emphasizing that the practice accorded with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality.

…A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth. I brought up (this man’s) situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?”

The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”

“Is this forbidden by Islam?,” I asked.

“Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not–she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”

While the savage exploitation of girls and young women is an unfortunately cross-cultural phenomenon, only in Islamic law does it carry anything approaching divine sanction. Here is yet another human rights scandal occasioned by Islamic law that the international human rights community and the mainstream media cravenly ignore. The abduction of the Nigerian schoolgirls could have been an opportunity to call upon Muslim leaders to work for genuine reform, so that the justifications for this savagery are definitively removed. Instead, Western leaders and the mainstream media are doing what they always do: pretend that this is an isolated incident and there is no problem.

And that only ensures that there will be more such incidents.

      Nasty vermin these faithful in the religion of peace, aren’t they?!

  • swemson

    There is simply no place for Islam in the civilized world. An adherence to the teachings of Islam is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, and, I suspect, the constitution of most other civilized nations.

    The lessons learned by European nations from their multiculturalism, should have already taught us that we need to close our borders to them right away, and that includes all student visas from Islamic nations, as those students are merely advance agents, infiltrators & provocateurs of the attempts at Islamic takeover of the USA which clearly, has already begun.

    Getting rid of the ones that are already here will be harder, but if we can get rid of “The One” living at 1600 Penn ave, that will be a damned good start!

      The Koran is incompatible with every Constitution—in Islamic teaching, the Koran IS the constitution. No other law or societal order is needed—indeed, any law in that is in the slightest different from the Koran is, by nature “un-Islamic”.

  • Rosasolis

    Not so long ago Nigeria was a developing country and a member of the
    British Commonwealth. The capitol city was always Lagos, up until recently. Several countries all over the world contributed to
    several community and education projects. Many young students, amongst them
    young women, came to Europe to further their education. They were welcomed
    and supported by scholarships. It is incredible that life within this once fast
    developing country has deteriated so quickly, due to the overwhelming growth
    of the Islam, and the terrible Jihad from Boko Harem. It is incredible that the
    government of this once- developing country is now unable to protect the
    Christian and non-Islamic communities.
    The Jihad is spreading so quickly all over the Middle-east and Africa, that
    probably within 5 – 10 years the Islam will Take Over all of Africa and several
    countries in Asia….Then Europe will be next, followed by North and South America.
    Those poor girls from Nigeria will never be rescued, and many more girl’s schools
    will be targeted in the near future! Boko Harem will soon be building many
    Islamic Harems everywhere in Africa, to force young girls to bear many
    sons for the Jihad!

    • Jeff Ludwig

      If you are not careful, somebody might say you are an Islamophobe. Do you know how serious it would be for you to be called that? You would never be able to work at any level of government where the administration is run by the Democrats. You might have your tax audited. You will be ostracized by certain cliques, and not invited to classical music concerts. And, anyhow, don’t you think you are over-reacting by being so offended by the murderous fiends of Boko Haram? They are simply expressing their victimhood. They have been held back for too long. That’s all. 275 girls stolen from the their parents and possibly sold into slavery? Please. Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill.

      • Rosasolis

        I am, along with so many others in Europe and in several other
        countries in our Western World indeed worried about the steady
        increase of Islamic terrorism, especially during the last 2 – 3 years.
        Freedom of speech is still allowed in this country (Netherlands),
        and this country does not support terrorist groups!
        If the Boko Harem members were honest and worthy men, , they would seek non-violent ways to discuss their problems and grudges. Instead of picking on young girls to try to force the
        government to accept their very cruel and primitive
        Sharia Law, which does not allow any rights for women and girls.
        And sees only 1 goal in life for all these young girls:
        producing many SONS for their Jihad…as soon as possible.
        Yesterday evening our National TV News reported that
        Boko Harem raided a village and kidnapped yet again 8 girls
        in the age of 12 – 15 years old, right out of their homes.!
        And you accuse me of “overacting and making a mountain out of a molehill!”
        How would you feel if this happened to your little girl!
        Maybe you should join up with Boko Harem, since you are
        obviously a woman-hater. Perhaps you should start making
        plans to do so, before some worried American just might report
        you to the health service. And then the men in white will come
        to take you away to some very quiet place, where perhaps with
        some help, you just may be able to recover from your hatred
        to women and girls!

        • Kenn Miller

          He was being facetious.

        • Jeff Ludwig

          There has been a misunderstanding. I apologize for offending you. My entire comment was intended as sarcasm in SUPPORT of your comment. I was trying to make fun of those who would see you as making a mountain out of a molehill. I don’t believe at all that you are exaggerating the importance of this kidnapping. Best wishes to you.

          • Rosasolis

            Thank-you for this correction. As the Islam Jihad is
            worsening by the day in the Middle-east and Africa,
            I don’t think we have much time left over for jokes or
            sarcasm! The time is nearby when the whole
            Western World will at last have to wake up and realize
            that our entire civilization will soon be threatened by
            these fast- growing Islamic terrorists groups.
            Let’s hope that when the governments of North-America,
            Europe and the UN at last do wake up…it’s not too late!

  • cacslewisfan

    Where is the Muslim outcry? Where are the immams? Why haven’t Muslim scholars risked life and limb to reach out to their brothers in Nigeria to correct this terrible hijacking of Islam? Who bought the girls sold on Allah’s slave market? Nothing but silence.

    • Jeff Ludwig

      Speaking frankly as a Jewish-Christian-Imam (I believe that all religions are the same at bottom), what was done to those little girls was wrong, but we don’t want to make mountains out of molehills. As the holy books say, “A little dirt does not a mountain make.” I tried to assert my concern, but five years ago my neighbors cut off my hands, so I can’t write. One year later, they cut out my tongue so I can’t speak. We are all in this together. Salaam Aleichem.

      • cacslewisfan

        What are you talking about? Are you being sarcastic?

          Yes. I thought I was writing a creative response in support of your comment…. sorry for the misunderstanding…..

      Because moderate Islam is none existent. Sex Slaves, are you kidding me. This is not a religion of any God I would worship. This is Satans work. Islamic Pigs should be removed from the Earth. Send them all back to Allah, in Hell.

    • Nabukuduriuzhur

      Same reason only ONE islamic group in the U.S. actually condemned 911. The rest whined about how they were treated in America.

  • tickletik

    Well boys, I think we are looking at this entire situation all wrong.

    Now the way I see it, we need to respect our opponents, listen to them. I think we need to open our hearts to our cousins on the Ishmaeli side and show some respect for their customs. Now as you all know, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and our dear relatives on that side of the family tree have been telling us for ages that we are not showing them enough respect! Well, it’s time to change that!

    I propose we enact a limited form of Sharia. From now on, our beloved Marines and GI’s should be allowed, nay, expected, to capture and enslave Islamic girls that they come across in the course of their occupation. I know it will be hard, it’s so hard to go against our own ethical standards, but keep in mind that as our dear leftist friends tell us, all standards are simply relative. Think of it this way, enslavement for the sake of Peace™ !

    From now on, we will use our laws, our technology and our Freedoms to enslave Muslims, especially virginal Muslim girls. This will have a triple benefit:

    1. It will create more Muslims with our own genes, now Muslims will not have to proselytize to get European genes in the Muslim pool, we will graciously give it to them. Regularly. And thoroughly. With great enthusiasm.

    2. Since leftist feminists are some of the biggest supporters of Islam, we can give our feminist sisters a chance to explain to captured Muslim slave girls why feminism is a good thing.

    3. It will finally bring Peace™ to this region of the world! Nothing says Peace™, like “I am going to kill all your men, and take all your women for my pleasure.” I know nothing says it like that because for years I have been told that my dear cousins are the most Peaceful of men, and they constantly tell me they want to do this to me and everyone else. Therefore it stands to reason, this must be the True path to Peace™.

    4. Our GI’s and beloved Marines will finally get some recompense that will almost make it worth it to go to these godforsaken s***holes. Muslim slave girls. Nuff said.

    What is the coward Obama going to do? Send drones?

    • kaz

      no. Obama’s blathering about Syria and crimea make Obama look bad. obama sending americans to Nigeria to help find the kidnapped girls will make obama look bad, because we wont accomplish anything, and the blame will be transferred from the kidnappers to the joker who could not recognize that the kidnapping in Nigeria is not his responsibility. there is one and only one thing that a good president would do in response to the kidnapping of those girls: protect our own girls (and everyone else) by sending all muslims home. but if he was a good president, he would already have done that.

  • Stop Statism

    Very easy to put a end to Boko Haram and send a clear warning to all Islamist groups. It will require uncivilized actions, but then we are dealing with savages.
    Capture and kill Boko Haram fighters, those captured alive, have all of their male children shot in their presence, then behead the fighters and have their heads placed on stakes. We are dealing with people who are more degenerate and vile than the Nazi SS, Imperial Japanese army and the NKVD.

  • Hard Little Machine

    On al Jazeera today they had HRW shill Rona Pilager shriek and nag about the entire problem with all of this was the Nigerian governments inability or unwillingness to respond. She never actually mentioned Boko Haram as if these kidnappings were because of the weather or other forces of nature.

    • Charless116

      Let me guess Rona is a self hating Jew.

      Not that it matters. All the gentiles at HRW are self hating too. It might be their whiteness or growing up in the West, but you know they hate themselves.

      What was the Nigerian government supposed to do? You want sharia, fine you got sharia, no questions asked? Yee haw, we have a sharia, I mean a war on women now!

      Pilager is an idiot.

        They have in another article on this site. More to come I imagine

    • Jeff Ludwig

      Yes, Ms. Pilager is right on target. The Nigerian government is responsible for the capture and enslavement of 275 little girls by Boko Haram. The Indian government was responsible for the massacre in Mumbai. The Indonesian government was responsible for the attacks in Bali. The Israeli government is responsible for the thousands of missiles falling on Sderot launched from Gaza. The Mali government is responsible for the murderous attacks by the Islamacists against civilians. The Spanish government is responsible for the bombing of its trains killing dozens. The British government is to blame for the beheading of Mr. Rigby on a street in broad daylight “in the name of Allah.” The government of the Philippines is to blame for attacks in Mindinao by Abu Sayeff including kidnapping of missionaries and civilians. The Russians are to blame because the Chechen Islamic terrorists murdered over two hundred children in cold blood. And, of course, “the Crusaders” (of 1095 A.D.) are to blame for the burning down of over 80 churches in Egypt since 2012! Why would any right thinking person consider Ms. Pilager to be troubled, hate-filled, or vile?

  • Porkys2istan

    Now that the Hollywood people are noticing, all the news outlets are picking up this story. What sickens me most is the number of reports that utterly FAIL to mention that Boko Haram is an ISLAMIC group. From listening to these reports you would think that these guys just woke up one day and decided that they didn’t like schools, women, and especially women going to school.

    The FEW that do mention the islamic nature of Boko Haram make it sound like some ‘fringe’ radical group instead of being EXACTLY like over 160 other terrorist islamic groups doing the EXACT same things across the entire globe.

    Even when it’s right in our faces they STILL can’t call it what it is. Islam. Evil.

    • Jeff Ludwig

      Well stated. Thanks.

    • jack diamond

      A jihad which began with the election of a Christian president in Nigeria, which targets Christians for mass murder even while in church, which justifies every atrocity by reasons of Islam, including enslaving and raping young girls (the majority of those kidnapped are Christians). This kidnapping is part of the “cleansing” of Christians. Boko Haram’s stated goal is the same of all jihadists everywhere, shari’a. But is this not the goal of all good orthodox Muslims everywhere? Has shari’a been repudiated anywhere? It certainly is the goal of the 56-nation member OIC at the United Nations,the so-called “voice” of the Muslim World, whose Cairo Declaration of Human Rights abrogated the UNDHR for Muslims by making all “human rights” in Muslim countries subject to shari’a (not the UNDHR). What could you conclude from that? Some folks in Hollywood find the implementation of shari’a law by the Sultan of Brunei so objectionable they are boycotting his hotel (the Beverly Hilton). Why, and what conclusions could this lead you to?

  • Jeff Ludwig

    This article says it all. Reading it, one understands why only the U.S. and Britains are expressing concern. More than mere concern is needed, however, because of Mr. Spencer’s incredible research and knowledge we now know why we do not hear any outcry by any Islamic country, nor offers to intercede nor exhortations to bring these Boko Haram villains/maniacs to justice for their ultra-heinous deeds. It was the same after those Chechnyan fiends killed all those children at a school a few years ago. Not a word of response or encouragement, nada, from the Islamic societies around the world. You know, in a way, I was better off before our instantaneous worldwide news made these terrible doings available to me. Now, I have to wake up to reading this stuff. It’s truly and literally nauseating. Where are you immoral Muslim peoples, you so-called “moderates”, when this news breaks?
    Why are you not condemning this? Why don’t you “prove” [sic] Mr. Spencer wrong? Why are you not offering aid to the government of Nigeria to rescue these girls and PUNISH these evildoers?! This is why the Muslim world was totally poor and backward before the development of oil resources in their lands, and why they will continue to be backward. Yes, they will revert into permanent decline once the West becomes oil independent and energy independent, and stops buying the Middle Eastern “black gold.” These people have no (NO!) understanding of the Golden Rule. Wrong is wrong even if it is committed by a Muslim against an infidel. What an outrageous silence from the worldwide Muslim community failing to condemn this bunch of illiterate, fiendish Boko Haramites!!!!!!!!

  • jtrollla

    Islam is a barbaric utterly malignant anti-civilization. It cannot be dialogued with or accommodated, it must be fought and completely subdued.

    • Jeff Ludwig

      You must be exaggerating. Don’t you realize that Persian rugs are made by Islamics? Don’t you remember that we use Arabic numbers? And what about the desert scenes in the movie Lawrence of Arabia? None of these great things would have been possible without Islam! Do you think our President would assign NASA the task of promoting the contributions of Islamic culture in the world if those contributions were not significant? Do you think that the PRESIDENT OF THE USA would stoop so low as to use a major federal agency merely to develop propaganda?

      • Tracey Lin Miller

        Christianity is also a barbaric religion, does this mean we should condemn all Christians because a few utilize the teachings to further their negative agendas? Perhaps we should assess those we are judging within the context of their particular locations rather than condemn all people with similar belief systems.

        • Jeff Ludwig

          Sorry Ms. Miller, but I reject your statement that Christianity is “a barbaric religion.” Where do we see the scale of violence among Christians that we see in the Muslim world? It’s actually incredible to me that you would make that statement.

        • Nightowl

          What does Christianity have to do with the fact that Islam allows sex slavery of little girls? Those girls are being sold into slavery and raped because of Islamic law. Shame on you for trying to distract from the real issue here!

          Context of their particular locations? Such as the hundreds of Coptic Christian girls kidnapped by Muslim men in Egypt? The Christian women assaulted by Muslims in Syria? In Pakistan? Those taken as slaves in the Sudan? There couldn’t be a pattern here right? And why mention the rape epidemic in Europe being conducted by Muslims. Or the rape jihad that took place in Bangladesh in 1971. Do they have something in common? Or let’s say the violence against women and their sufferings under the oppression that is shari’a law throughout the lands of Islam, countries that have nothing in common aside from Islam. And why bring up the history of slavery in Islam, the sanctioning of it, the example set by Muhammad, or the fact the Arab Muslims established the slave trade in Africa and that the great slave markets of the old world were Arab. Just more local color, not any reason to condemn a whole belief system. The negative agenda you speak of comes from the teachings themselves and are shared by the vast majority of Muslims. They have no choice, you see, Islam is not about giving them a choice. What part of Slaves of Allah don’t you understand?

      Hey Cappy…he’s the POTUS, not Pres. of the world. Do you expect him to express moral outrage at inhuman acts committed on the other side of the world. No. He must reserve his incessant criticisms for the Republicans, the Tea Partiers and especially ex-Pres. Bush. And yes, don’t forget, if he is going to criticize anyone, he must first criticize Israel for allowing a couple of hundred people to build a few houses in the suburbs of Jerusalem. That is real immorality! How can you fail to see it? He must use his chips of moral outrage to stand up against the racism of the cop in Cambridge Mass. who actually had the audacity to challenge a leading professor of black studies at Harvard College. These are the kinds of moral issues that require public presidential outrage. Murder of Americans in Benghazi? Shooting down of pro-democracy Iranians? Burning of churches in Egypt? Black Panthers intimidating voters in Philadelphia, PA? Children forced into murderous service in the Congo? Beheadings in the streets of London? Evil tyrannies in North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, Gaza, the Palestinian Authority, etc.? Murder rate through the roof in Chicago? Do you actually expect the President to “take sides” in these matters? You are way too partisan. Give it up. Better still, if you keep thinking the way you are thinking, I wouldn’t be surprised if the IRS shows up on your doorstep. And you know something Cappy, you would deserve it…..

I agree that he should be speaking out as you say, and was trying to portray him as speaking out only about unimportant stuff and partisan politics, not about real, moral issues. Thus, everything was supposed to be “in reverse.” When I get to the end and write “well, you might be anti-American” it was intended to leave the reader thinking not that you are anti-American, but that you are a true patriot in contrast with the president.
          I guess I didn’t write it properly and you felt insulted. Really sorry. If you read my comments above in the list of comments, you will see more clearly where I am coming from. At any rate, I apologize for the misunderstanding caused by my comment.

            dont sweat it, jeff. your post was obvious satire, and anyone that could not recognize that should keep fingers off keyboards for risk of further embarrassment.

          • American Patriot

            What does POSPOTUS stand for?

      Obama is an empty suit. He is not black. He is half white, which he scorns. He is mostly Arab, only his grandmother was black. He is not the descendant of anyone who was an African-American slave. His ancestors were on the owner/trader side of slavery, this is what they do and what they have done. Remember that the Koran tells it is ok to lie to protect Islam, that’s all you need to know

    No. How dare you insist on harsh treatment! When they are captured, we should read them their Miranda rights. Then we should give them three squares a day, with Fios cable TV so they can watch Islamic channels. And don’t forget, a new Qu’ran in every bunk, with halal meat to prevent a hunger strike. Regular exercise, and handmade prayer rugs from Iran or Syria should allow them to see that we acknowledge freedom of religion. And last, but certainly not least, kind and merciful guards should be assigned who will politely say thank you when the prisoners spit in their faces. Mean people have no place in the civil USA that all liberal-minded, good people truly want. Our ideal in all circumstances must be: Be Nice.

    Why is it that the comments on this page sound more reasoned, educated and morally right than anything coming out of Washington, Berlin, London or Paris where the leaders of the western world sit on their thrones equivocating about a dangerous, virulent, malignant evil that has been on a rampage for fourteen centuries and is now killing and enslaving people all over the world?? Why is the media so studiously ignoring the primary motive of these monsters? And what can we do, and how can we organize to present a combined, successful front to combat this evil in the world? The fate of untold future generations of children in the new millennium lies in the balance. Will we stand against this evil now, or let it roll over us and enslave our descendants for hundreds of years under a world-wide caliphate?

      When I was a kid, there was an afternoon radio show, I eagerly awaited, looking forward to 5:00 pm. It was called “The Shadow” where the main character could make himself invisible in order to catch bad guys. The announcer at the opening of the show would say, “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?….only The Shadow knows……” Yep. I’m going to play being The Shadow for a second, and go out on a limb and say that I believe the silence you write about in the media, in leaders, etc. etc. is because of evil lurking in the hearts of men. Mr. Foard…I know this…you and I are on the same team!!!

    It’s shortly after 2pm EDT on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Media outlets are reporting that US military personnel are being dispatched to Nigeria to help rescue the nearly 300 (primarily Christian) Nigerian girls who have been kidnapped by sex slave addicts of Boko Haram in recent weeks. Going after a small Muslim gang in an African nation that hangs its hat on the words of Muhammad allowing for sex slaves is one thing. However, where are the US military personnel who are condemning the jihadists who bastardize the Koran for their disgusting worldview? Where are the desperately needed US military personnel who are helping the people in Ukraine to dissuade Putin from his aggression on a sovereign nation and to end the threats that Ukrainian Jews are under?

    Tell me again why I should respect these people. Tell me again how they are deserving of the same level of consideration given to normal human beings, why I should care when they are splattered all over the ground by munitions. Libs can love them all they want. Call them “targets” and exterminate them.

    Islam is a Pig Culture and should be treated like Pigs. Islam is a cancer on the Earth, we need to remove it now.

  • Tracey Lin Miller

    Well if according to the Qu’ran slaves should be infidels, how can these Islamic girls qualify? There are many who always use religion to justify their wrong doing. These people are no different.

      Relativism will be the death of Western Civilization.

    • Jack Diamond

      Most of the girls are Christian. The Muslim ones attending a “Western school” Boko Haram would either consider already being apostate or they would separate them . What happens when a religion calls for wrongdoing?

      • Jack Diamond

        read and ponder this before commenting again:

      • kaz

        what happens when a religion calls for wrongdoing? the western media, traitors in government, and other lowlife all call that religion a great religion of peace. that is what happens when a religion calls for wrongdoing.

    I thought the White Man was responsible for SLAVERY?

    • borzix1

      You were wrong then. Slaves, mainly African slaves were traded by Arab
      merchants 2 thousand years ago. Whenever Muslims had a foothold in
      Europe, they traded Europeans. The Istambul slave market was full of
      Central European slaves in the 16th-17th-18th centuries.

  • tagalog

    They make videos about how they’re going to sell schoolgirls to what evidently is a still-active-in-the-21st-Century slave market, and the United States gets reamed out on a daily basis because it didn’t eliminate slavery until 1865, a century and a half ago?

    Well, I guess you gotta arrange your priorities in some way…

  • momolala

    Cool, degenerate people! Let’s imitate them so nobody remembers who is degenerate, and what is human!

  • david selvers

    The islamic pigs have learned to exploit our apathy. The tolerance and compassion of the West is interpreted as weakness and stupidity and by the blessings of allah our throats have been exposed…and the pathetic socialist left extend their necks like a giraffe.
    Take heed of the message and prepare to meet the messanger…islam is the ideology of a barbaric and ruthless enemy…islam is slavery and war.
    Right now the United States of America is not a favorable ally, obama is a fool who is way over his head and “lurch”, john kerry, is more useless than hillary clinton, never has America been so indecisive and seemingly lost thanks to the obama administration. It’s no wonder they can’t build a coalition.
    Si Vis Paceum Parabellum…get ready people cause shit is about to hit the fan.
