Islamic Cleric Decrees It OK for Syrian Rebels to Rape Women

Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times, April 3, 2013

An Islamic cleric has cleared the path for rebels in Syria, who are trying to oust President Bashar Assad, to rape women, so long as they’re non-Sunni.

Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-Ajlawni, who hails from Jordan but who lived in Damascus for 17 years, sent a message via YouTube: It’s a “legitimate fatwa” for Muslims waging war against Mr. Assad and trying to put in place a Sharia government to “capture and have sex with” Alawites and other non-Sunni, non-Muslim women, Human Events reports. Mr. Assad is part of the Alawites sect.

In the video, the cleric called non-Muslim women by their Arabic term, “melk al-yamin,” Human Events reports. The term is from the Koran and refers to non-Muslim sex slaves, Human Events says.

    Ahh, the Koran, the uplifting, spiritual, enlightening paragon of man’s universal knowledge and progress.

    • zimriel

      Human Events is right. Think of “malk al-yamin” as droit du seigneur – it’s what your right hands possess. Muslims take booty in battle and then they, er, enjoy the booty.

  • Bill

    Can ANYBODY imagine a Christian cleric of today saying anything of this sort? Islam truly is one of the religions Satan loves. And our treasonous elites still try to tell us this evil thing is a religion of peace? That we should allow more to come here?

    • brengunn

      I don’t know about clerics but it was a wide spread tactic on the Eastern front during the 2nd world war.

      • Daisy

        Begin ordered it in the early days of the Arab-Israeli ‘conflict;’ he commanded his men to rape the women and murder the children of Palestinian villages to break their people’s will. Was the tactic in WWII a de facto one or explicit one?

        • brengunn

          For the Russians it was explicit, I’m not sure about the Germans, or even how much the Germans took part in such tactics but the Russians were notorious for it.

          • brengunn

            From wikipedia,

            Soviet troops raped German women and girls as young as eight years old. Estimates of the total number of victims range from tens of thousands to two million.

            Terrifying. Supposedly he largest mass rape in human history.

          • rightrightright

            The front line Russian troops had no reason to feel friendly towards the East Germans, yet these Russians (who were white) warned the Germans that the hordes of muslim troops from the Stanlands coming along behind were rabble and would loot and rape them. The East German women found that if they carried a baby in their arms, they sometimes were passed over for rape.

          • brengunn

            Are you saying that the Russians were not ruthless rapers themselves? That’s BS.

          • saxonsun

            The Russians were animals in their treatment of German women–don’t try to duck out of the truth.

          • America First

            The mass rapes of German women (AND women in concentration camps, regardless of nationality) by Russian soldiers was explicitly sanctioned by Stalin, who referred to the rapes as combat soldiers “having a little fun.” The numbers range into the millions, with many, particularly in the eastern part of the Reich, raped to death. Revenge, was no doubt, a factor.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            It was encouraged by Stalin’s propaganda minister Ilya Ehrenberg, whom Stalin (via Pravda articles) was forced to criticize and distance himself from.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            The Germans were relatively benign with Russian and Ukrainian civilians, except when it came to Jews – and partisan activity, where they committed reprisal killings. One of the defining characteristics of German defensive operations from 1943 onward was that they had to make provision for Soviet civilians to retreat along with Axis combat forces; many Russians and Ukrainians preferred the Germans to the Commissars and NKVD they knew would arrive with the Soviet Army.

            This was largely pragmatism on the part of the Wehrmacht; orderly retreats down roads already clogged with civilian refugees would have been impossible. That said, an army notorious for rape simply wouldn’t have had this problem.

          Mayor Emanuel is a worldly man. He’s not some dweeb from Lake Forest. His family likes to emphasize how his mother was a civil rights activist for blacks in the American South, but they don’t talk as much about his father. Dr. Benjamin Emanuel is an Israeli and belonged to the right-wing terrorist organization Irgun. Those are the the guys who blew up the British headquarters in the King David Hotel and committed the Deir Yassin massacre of an Arab village that did so much to improve Israel’s long-term demographic position by terrifying many Palestinians into fleeing.

          I’m not saying Rahm’s dad was personally involved in either, but he was, by all accounts, a member of Irgun. And Irgun played a crucial role in Israeli history in the 1940s. Irgun was a predecessor of today’s highly successful Likud Party. I presume that Rahm Emanuel is personally closer to Israel’s non-Likud parties, but he definitely knows where Netanyahu is coming from.

          The son remains so emotionally close to Israel that he served as a volunteer in Israel during the 1991 Gulf War.

            He was born in Chicago, but grew up in Winnetka, which isn’t too far from being Lake Forest.

            This comment and others is violating Amren’s policy banning anti Jew obsessions. The subject is Arab Muslim barbarism toward women, not wild rumors about Jewish atrocities in the 1940s.

        • Zimriel

          No, Begin never commanded such an order. Give proof or retract this slander.

          • Daisy

            The source was a jewish PhD professor of middle eastern history. He taught us this, along with the ugly truths about the CIA’s actions in Iran, etc. I knew a friend whose father fought with Begin and while I never asked her I got the distinct sense that this was true based on things she said. I can’t offer more proof than this professor’s words. He was a religious jew and an honest historian it seemed to me.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jasbo.adink Jasbo Adink

            Yes, I’m going to have to agree with you on that, Zimriel. That never happened. People all over the world do all sorts of crazy things, so there’s no need to make up stuff.
            Look at the North Koreans for example, something that just happened a few minutes ago– their chubby, child-king says he’s going to nuke the US. Of course, he doesn’t have the ability to do this, and is probably only trying to score points with his people and maybe get a few handouts because the US is the home of Uncle Sucker– but it is an example of evil taking place in the real world at present. No need to embelish.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          “Begin ordered it in the early days of the Arab-Israeli ‘conflict;’ he commanded his men to rape the women and murder the children of Palestinian villages to break their people’s will.”

          Source? I’m not finding anything.

          • Daisy

            I already stated that I was taught this by a jewish PhD in middle eastern history. I’ll try to look up his name but, it’s been a long time and I doubt he still teaches at the college where I took a class in my 20’s. I could research it and find his name but if I publicized it he might wind up on some SPLC list which seems unfair; it was an accredited 4 years college in NJ. He didn’t mince words about the CIA’s actions in the Middle East either, so I don’t see him qualifying as hating the jews, and he also mentioned at one point being offended that he couldn’t take his jewish holidays off. The school was not Rutgers University where I got my degree from. I have no idea if he was right or not, although I mention my friend whose father fought with Begin and how she seemed to be hinting at the truth of my professor’s words. I got the sense this was done sporadically, not to every village, but that was just an impression.

          • Zimriel

            A PhD religious Jew whom you can’t name.

            Bovine dropping confirmed.

          • Daisy

            Are you accusing me of lying about being taught this fact by a PhD in Middle Eastern history? Or are you accusing the professor of being full of ‘bovine dropping?’

            It’s interesting that you’re so very certain that it’s a lie just because I can’t come up with a name of one professor I had for one class more than 15 years ago, at a school where I took only one night class. I had already studied the topic of the Arab-Israeli conflict under Judith Tucker, whose text books on middle eastern history are taught at universities around the country and world,at Georgetown University so the topic bored me. I wanted to learn more about the *arab* culture but we spent an inordinate amount of time on the Israel-Palestine struggle. I looked up his name but it’s a small school and he’s no longer there. I could dig further as they’d have his name somewhere in my transcript records but that’s kind of more investment than this warrants from my angle. I just find it interesting that you’re so certain. You say I can’t prove a posiitve but you can’t prove a negative. Do you have a PhD in history with a specialty in the Middle East? Or any degrees related to history at all?

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Yes; I think you were doing exactly that.

          • Daisy

            Wow you’re actually saying I’m making the fact that this was taught to me up? The school was College of St. Elizabeth in NJ, which is located in the heart of a very upscale and PhD-overridden area. My pretty vast experience of history teachers at a number of colleges caused me to take this at his word. Michael can you name one source – an author, a book, an incident – related to the field of Israeli Lobby research? It was my work on this topic that also caused me to believe this prof’s claims. Accusing me of lying on this is pretty bold, especially from one who knows zilch about the overall issue. Norman Finkelstein documented in various of his books on the Israeli Lobby that the historian, Joan Peters, author of From Time Immemorial, claimed no palestinians even lived in ‘Israel’ before jewish imperialism; she was considered part of the canon of pro-Israeli propaganda and was debunked by various historians, namely jews like Hilberg and Finkelstein. You seem to think you know it all Michael even when you’re an utter ignoramus. Not all jews are imperialists, as this prof proves. He moderated debates on the border conflicts that were totally fair. He was an historian, not an ideologue. There is even a school of thought within Israel that believes that until the Israelis take full responsibility for their atrocities and crimes against the Palestinians there is no chance for peace.

            I do not debate with people who simply think I’m lying about some historical fact to…what…sabotage jews? That’s a typical semitic projection that I won’t dignify again. No need for us to ever exchange ‘ideas’ again on Amren.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Germans didn’t rape Jewish women because this would have had the perpetrator executed for defiling his race. Romanian Gypsies did a lot of raping for both sides.

    • Daisy

      I can. My catholic university was found civilly guilty of rape even when a student committed it in the courts of the city. How common that is seems unclear though. I’m also not certain if it had anything but a de facto impact on white women specifically. Christian males do it in war but probably not as often nor as overtly encouraged.

      • Bill

        Stick to the point, that of citing a Christian CLERIC publicly calling for the rape of women and specifically non-Christian women as okay. I know you like to take comments and run down rabbit trails of feminism, or feminine centric causes, but the comment concerned the difference between OFFICIAL Islamic policy and official Christian policy. It’s about the war between Light and Darkness. Not everything needs to concern your perceived war between men and women.

        • Daisy

          How does it benefit whites in that war when christian leaders call for the rape of white women? This is definitely what the court system in Washington, DC, recognized: that the Jesuits were explicitly promoting the rape of their female students. The precedent was set on behalf of a white woman, and every victim I encountered of this dynamic was white. Sorry I think it relates. My white family paid for me to get sexually assaulted and stalked and for blacks to then benefit in the overall competition.

        • saxonsun

          Why is it whenever women point out male brutality, they’re “feminists.” And guess what? It’s not a dirty word, but a great compliment.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jack-Ryan/100000772975435 Jack Ryan

      Agreed. But our Christian clerics have other corruptions. Somehow I doubt any Muslim clerics are coming out for full homo marriage equality.

    • jay11

      How do you think there are so many mestizos in Latin America? The Catholic Church not only turned a blind eye to raping of Mesoamerican women, but encouraged it to help bring their souls to Christ. There was also some strange pronouncements of the catholic church during the crusades against non-Christians. All can be blamed at one time or another. Doesn’t excuse it, but we must be real.

  • IstvanIN

    Thank goodness we are importing thousands of Muslims refugees from the middle east and Africa every year. Their advanced culture and humanity will help cure white America of its systemic misogyny and hatred.

  • bigone4u

    “Islam is a religion of peace.”–George W. Bush
    I can still remember before Johnson when Presidents told something at least close to the truth. As to God’s approval of rape, I’ll bet there won’t be a feminist professor on campus to utter even a whimper of disapproval of the muzzie’s declaration. They’re too busy hating on white males and heterosexuality, as well as organizing “slut walks.”

    • John

      They should have a slut walk through an Islamicized London area. I don’t know who I’d root for.

      • Daisy

        Yeah, I wonder if I’d be on his side or theirs!

    • Daisy

      Please define ‘slut walk;’ I’ve never heard of it.

      • brengunn

        It’s a march of scantily clad girls protesting against rape victims attire being used as an excuse for rape and the thinking they brought it on themselves by wearing a short skirt.

        • Daisy

          In the old days it used to be called Take Back the Night although the emphasis wasn’t on attire, just the right to walk down the street as a woman alone. On rare occasion some women would go shirtless or bare-breasted. I supported it but don’t respect the slut walk concept.

          • The__Bobster

            I’m glad they had “support” somewhere. ;-)

          • bigone4u

            You can look it up on youtube and watch one. In the local slutwalk, one old Mexican fellow I saw on youtube punctured the sanctimonious bubble by yelling out, “You girls trying out to be strippers?” He was not trying to be funny or disrespectful. He just didn’t know what was happening.

  • brengunn

    Non Muslim women? Who exactly are these non Muslim women that they will be raping? Western journalists? The small Christian minority that probably is not actively fighting but is targeted anyway?

    • Daisy

      Maybe a shi’ite is to them not a true muslim? I knew a christian arab gas station guy who claimed to have been ‘oppressed’ as such.

      • Strider73

        The Shiites and Sunnis hate each other at least as much as they hate everyone else. Each sect considers the other as infidels. I have long advocated that they be left alone to slaughter each other. Left to its own devices, the totalitarian death cult that is Islam would self-destruct.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Correct: each considers the other as heretics, and the punishment for heresy in Islam is death.

    • Xerxes22

      The Alawites are twelve percent of the population and they run the country. The Assad family are Alawites. Some consider them to be a branch of the Shia. Some Extreme Muslims like this fanatical cleric don’t even consider the Alawites to be Muslim.. Christians use to be ten percent of the population but many have fled the country since the civil war started..If the Alawites and the Assad family are overthrown there will be a far worse bloodbath than what is going on now.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jack-Ryan/100000772975435 Jack Ryan

        The Assad family looks higher caste White Indo European, similar to the Shah of Iran. I tend to follow Russian foreign policy in the ME, the Russians back whiter strongmen, same as in places like Chetnia. &$@# democracy!

  • Jss

    Wasn’t one of the reasons we bombed the Serbs because they were raping too many Muslims? I don’t believe any of that but now we are allies in all but name with these Islamist scumbags.

    Then in a few years we can invade and fight the people we armed an funded. And import the rest.

    – Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times, April 3, 2013

    This is why we should not support either side in the Syrian civil war. We don’t have a dog in that fight.

  • NYB

    “melk al-yamin” The term is from the Koran and refers to non-Muslim sex slaves”

    Yes, the derogatory term used by Middle Easterners to describe white females they want to conquer. Shiksa is another one.

    I don’t believe any such words to sexually objectify females of another race exist in white languages.

      what about “fcuk bunny?” I heard that a spring break 1984

  • Tannhauser

    I could care less about Syria.We should prefer Assad to the zealots and Al Qaida. Like Saddam they care only about power and weren’t really a danger to the West. As long as the ragheads are fighting each other their not fighting us.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jack-Ryan/100000772975435 Jack Ryan

      Syria’s racial policies have been good under Assad. Whiter Arab Christians in Syria and Lebanon were protected by Assad’s Syria.

      • Tannhauser

        That’s true, Syria and Iraq under the Ba’ath Party protected Christians and were friendly to the west. Assad and his wife look like they may even have European blood, probably from the days when Greeks or Romans ruled this area. Now with the Muslim brotherhood in control in Egypt, they massacre the Coptics and the same in Iraq.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Yeah, this is the unreported angle. Assad is an Alawite, a sect generally considered heretical by mainline Sunnis because it is much more moderate and friendlier to Western values and ways of living.

      My old man used to say, “Careful what you wish for – you just might get it!”

      I apply this canard to Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt as well as Syria. And we just sent tens of millions to aid the rebels?!!! Nothing good comes from our entanglement in that alien and hostile part of the world.

  • IKantunderstand

    Supposedly, in our “civilized” world such atrocities are not supposed to happen anymore. Yeah. Right. First of all, I have no idea how one tells a sunni woman from a non-sunni woman. But, here’s my theory, they don’t care. Just like they don’t care that they rape little White girls, big White girls, any girls at all actually. Including sunni/non-sunni. This guy is a member of the CYA club. There are no immigrants from third world countries who fit into the fabric of the historical White people of the U.F.N.S. Or in any White countries. They need to go. NOW. Of course, if any cultural enrichers move next door to you, by all means, provide a warm welcome. Dieversity is our strengh, after all.

  • Jackryanvb

    Non White’s abuse of women, support for rape and slavery should be a huge propaganda opportunity for our side but in most cases, we don’t use it. In particular, we should be opposing the worst Arab, Paki and Afro Arab Muslim immigration because they like to rape White women and groom them for lives as prostitutes, concubines for ugly NW Muslim men.

    The BNP and Geert Wilders have some success with this issue, but here in the USA our supposed leaders like Ron Paul and Rand Paul take the worst Muslim’s side and argue that any minor problems (9/11/01) we are having with NW Muslims is all the fault of the US Government, US foreign policy and we all should accept some really ugly Afro-Arab Muslim terrorist leader in Yemen as a full US citizen because of a legal technicality of birth right citizenship.

    I have lots of fears and concerns from brutal non Whites and various parts of the corrupt government, but suffering a missile drone attack by the US military ain’t one of them.

    • Daisy

      The Pauls do this because accepting the other alternative – being led by the nose through the middle east by the neo cons – is far more destructive to us.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jack-Ryan/100000772975435 Jack Ryan

    I’m going to repeat a rather obvious truth, that for some strange reason White Americans in “the movement” don’t want to hear:

    Regular White people everywhere still alive in the world, fear and hate Arab, Afro Arab, Paki, Turk, NW Muslim men who insult, sexually attack or just go for White women.

    Whites in Murfreesboro TN, Whites in Australia, Whites in Bradford England, the relatives of White New York Firemen martyred on 9/11/11 – all fear and hate these NW Muslim barbarians.

    When our side misses the boat on Muslim rapes, Muslim terrorism, Arabs and Blacks of some Muslim background rioting every New Years Eve in France, we open the door for Neo Conservatives like Sarkozy, National Review, Michael Bloomberg to step in and incite White Neo Con wars abroad and these same lying Neo Cons work behind the scenes to floodvWhite nations with the worst NW Muslim immigrants.

    There is absolutely no reason to be soft on terrible non White Muslims. They are not our people, not our allies. And these hordes of uneducated young Muslim men do not just want to be left alone in “their countries” lie Algeria and Pakstan (these used to be our countries).

    • Daisy

      And you think the Neo Con wars are being fought for Whites, and orchestrated by Whites? The cultivated ignorance on here is astounding. I would source about a dozen Israeli Lobby books and authors but it’ll all get deleted as per your myopic desire.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    That’s interesting, because with this ruling (read “exhortation”) al-Ajlawni has committed a “grave breach” of International Humanitarian Law, even if he rapes nobody himself.

    Mass gang rape is also not exactly what I would consider an element conducive to the re-establishment of a peaceful social order in Syria after the civil war is over. Quite the opposite, I should think. Some people never quite understand that wars are fought for political objectives (“War is a continuation of politics by other means.” — Carl von Clausewitz), and not for their own sake.
