"I will marry off a woman at the age of 12. I will marry off a girl at the age of nine."
Mohammed partly financed the expansion of Islam by enslaving and selling girls and women. Boko Haram in Nigeria is following in the way of their prophet by kidnapping and selling hundreds of non-Muslim schoolgirls.
Qur'an (33:50) - "O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee"
This is Islam.
Fears for the fate of more than 200 Nigerian girls turned even more nightmarish Monday when the leader of the Islamist group that kidnapped them announced plans to sell them.
"I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah," a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video first obtained by Agence France-Presse.
"There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women," he continued, according to a CNN translation from the local Hausa language.
"I will marry off a woman at the age of 12. I will marry off a girl at the age of nine," he said elsewhere in the video.
Leader Abubakar Shekau warned in a video obtained in March that all students should leave university and girls drop out of school to get married.
“In Islam, it is allowed to take infidel women as slaves,” Shekau said. “In due course, we will start taking women away.”
"Access to education is a basic right & an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls," former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote Sunday on Twitter. "We must stand up to terrorism. #BringBackOurGirls."
President Obama is being briefed on the attack, and pressure is mounting worldwide for the Nigerian government to act. Speaking during a visit to Africa, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States "will do everything possible to support the Nigerian government to return these young women to their homes and to hold the perpetrators to justice."
That's funny considering how long the State Department resisted naming Boko Haram a terrorist organization and that the Obama contribution to Nigeria's fight against Islamic terror was to pressure the government to appease it.
Boko Haram has murdered thousands, blown up churches and engaged in horrific atrocities. It's the deadliest Islamic terrorist group in the region and almost certainly has ties to Al Qaeda.
Despite that, Hillary Clinton dragged her feet when she was Secretary of State and now has contributed nothing except a tweet.
Will Kerry support drone strikes against Boko Haram? Good luck. Obama Inc. instead kept warning the Nigerian government that it was being too aggressive in fighting Boko Haram.
And this is the result.
