This is what Islamic law looks like. Child slaves. Horrifying abuses. And devout Muslims who will claim that they are the real victims.
This particular case involves ISIS, but there are plenty of similar cases of slavery involving non-ISIS Muslim immigrants. While the modern world reviles slavery, it remains a fundamental part of Islam and continues to be defended by Muslim scholars and professors.
A former member of the “Islamic State” (IS) group is facing war crimes charges in Germany over the death of a child, German prosecutors said on Friday.
Authorities said that Jennifer W. and her husband, also a jihadi, bought a 5-year-old girl as a household slave in 2015.
“After the girl fell ill and wet her mattress, the husband of the accused chained her up outside as punishment and let the child die of thirst in the scorching heat,” they said in a statement.
“The accused allowed her husband to do so and did nothing to save the girl.”
Meanwhile Georgetown University continued giving Jonathan Brown a forum despite his defense of the foul practice of slavery.
While the lecture was supposed to be about slavery in Islam, Brown spent the majority of the lecture talking about slavery in the United States, the United Kingdom and China. When discussing slavery in these societies Brown painted slavery as brutal and violent (which it certainly was). When the conversation would briefly flip to historic slavery in the Arab and Turkish World, slavery was described by Brown in glowing terms. Indeed, according to Brown, slaves in the Muslim World lived a pretty good life.
Slavery can’t be rejected by Muslims because Mohammed took and owned slaves.
ISIS just implemented Islamic law. This is what the consequences look like.
