ISIS Rape Victim Retaliates

ISIS Rape Victim Kills Commander Who Enslaved Her, Report Claims: Justified?

An ISIS rape victim has reportedly retaliated against the commander who enslaved her, according to multiple international reports.

Russia Today (RT) notes that the commander’s name was Abu Anas, but did not have details on the name of the victim, nor the method of execution.

However, they did have a date — Saturday — and a location — the Tal Roman district, west of militant-held Mosul — as offered by Saeed Mamouzini, a spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party.

The report comes mere days after an undisclosed number of non-Iraqi ISIS rape victims were transported to Mosul from a directive of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The purpose of the transport was to use the women as sex slaves.

A separate report on this same incident from news site This Is England shared in harrowing detail the experiences of surviving ISIS rape victims, with one stating that her attacker claimed rape was “his prayer to God.”

One 12-year-old victim shared a similar story.

“He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever… He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.”

The RT report divulged more disturbing details with regard to how accepted sexual assault is to the Islamic State. The site reports that children ages one to nine “can be purchased for about US$165, while adolescent girls cost $124. A woman over 20 is even less, and someone over the age of 40 can be sold for as little as $41.”

“In June, IS held a Koran memorizing contest with a grand prize of sex slaves,” the site added.

As for the rape victim, who took revenge on her captor, mentioned at the top of this article, a previous report from the Inquisitr revealed that hers is not the first planned case of revenge aimed at ISIS rape assailants.

In fact, Xate Shingali, a Yazidi singer, has formed an all-woman female posse called “Sun Girls,” vowing to fight back against ISIS in Iraq.

Yazidis have specifically been targeted by the Islamic State, who insist that they are “devil worshippers,” while female Yazidis have been kidnapped and then sold to sex slave markets.

The reason for ISIS’ intense hatred of the Yazidi religion is that it combines elements of both Islam and Christianity, and they pray to a being with the name Melek Taus, which means Peacock Angel.

Shingali announced the formation of the group on July 2, after receiving permission from the Kurdish president, and has since gathered around 123 women between the ages of 17 and 30, with a blunt mantra: “They rape us, we kill them.”

Do you think ISIS rape assailants — and rapists in general — should be eligible for the death penalty?
