"The women of Khaybar were distributed among the Muslims."
Kerry has never read the Koran, but he knows that Islam couldn't possibly be that mean.
“There’s nothing in Islam that condones or suggests people should go out and rape women and sell off young girls or give them as gifts to jihadists and cut people’s heads off and tie people’s hands behind their backs and put them on their knees and shoot them in their backs,” Kerry said.
Secretary of State John Kerry was speaking about ISIS. And he's wrong. As usual.
1. Mohammed practiced slavery
2. The Islamic campaigns were carried out for loot. Including the human kind. Many of Mohammed's first Muslims were out for slaves. Including female slaves.
3. Mohammed enslaved and raped women
These are all facts that are not seriously in dispute. The apologists for Islam may quibble over the rape part. That's about it.
Here's a typical account of what happened during Mohammed's campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Jews of the region, which ISIS is duplicating against Christians and Yazidis.
"We conquered Khaibar, took the captives, and the booty was collected. Dihya came and said, 'O Allah's Prophet! Give me a slave girl from the captives.' The Prophet said, 'Go and take any slave girl.' He took Safiya bint Huyai. A man came to the Prophet and said, 'O Allah's Apostles! You gave Safiya bint Huyai to Dihya and she is the chief mistress of the tribes of Quraiza and An-Nadir and she befits none but you.' So the Prophet said, 'Bring him along with her.' So Dihya came with her and when the Prophet saw her, he said to Dihya, 'Take any slave girl other than her from the captives.'
When Dihyah protested, wanting to keep Safiyah for himself, the Apostle traded for Safiyah by giving Dihyah her two cousins. The women of Khaybar were distributed among the Muslims.
We could belabor this at length, but there's nothing to dispute here. Mohammed's armies looted and killed the men and enslaved the women. It's elementary Islamic history.
The only thing Kerry got right is that there's nothing in the Koran about shooting the men. Guns didn't exist then. That's why they chopped off their heads instead.
That's why ISIS does it today.
