Angelina Jolie...FILE - This March 8, 2012 file photo shows actress Angelina Jolie at the Women in the World Summit in New York. Jolie says that she has had a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carried a gene that made it extremely likely she would get breast cancer. The Oscar-winning actress and partner to Brad Pitt made the announcement in  an op-ed she authored for Tuesday's New York Times under the headline, "My Medical Choice." She writes that between early February and late April she completed three months of surgical procedures to remove both breasts.  (AP Photo/Evan Agostini, file)

Angelina Jolie is wrong – Islamic State’s use of rape is horrible but familiar

When Angelina Jolie speaks, people listen. Earlier this week a House of Lords committee was transfixed as the Hollywood star talked about the rape of girls as young as seven in war zones. Jolie is campaigning on the issue of sexual violence and peers listened intently as she accused Islamic State (Isil) of deliberately using rape as the ‘centrepoint of their terror’.

    F familiar — are they trying to make it a norm –like gays– I fear for my daughter and yet to be grandkids.

  • Petrilla

    Perhaps this is one Hollywood star worth caring about. I have no use for most of them 400 movies at Tif,, who will even see a few? Angelina Jolie talks about what I care about. The abuse of sex by men in the Muslim world and how the yazidi women are sold with their blue eyes and blonde hair for $45! White girl slavery was not a joke. So movies mean nothing to me, but Angelina Jolie speaking out about female sexual slavery in this battle of civilizations means more than any movie to me..Enjoy the movies. Angelina Jolie has deserved her meeting with Queen Elizabeth, she is a true freedom fighter for women

      where are the rest of the feminists? Steinam , Sarandon etc.

      or criticizing non whites not in their script

      • David Murrell

        I agree with Ms. Jolie, but this story is not that fmiluar. It is NOT being discussed in the establishment nedia.

        • mauser 98

          Hollywood elite are very selective in their outrage
          remember Darfur?
          where is George Clooney , Sean Penn?

        • mauser 98

          because Obama is President?

        nada… silence… crickets. Only if this was the universities’ “rape culture”

    • Brenda

      I agree – for once, a star using her popularity and influence for sensible and good causes. And, unlike many of her colleagues in that business, she definitely has a head on her shoulders.

    And rape as a weapon is very familiar to Muslims- it’s a tradition that goes back to their Prophet and is enshrined in the Co-ran.

    Co-ran 33:50 gives the o.k. for Muhammad, the example of behaviour for Muslims (Co-ran 33:21), to, ahem, ‘marry’ women captured in battle….

    ‘and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee;’

    And as any sane person realizes, a traumatized woman captured in battle doesn’t consent to marriage, she gets raped by her captor.
    ‘Husband’? No. He’s a rapist!

    Besides telling Muhammad it’s okay to rape women, the Co-ran (4:24) also tells everyday Muslim men that they can’t have sex with married women, unless it’s a slave….

    ‘ Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess’

    A woman who was once married and is now a slave doesn’t consent to sex with her captor, she gets raped.

    How are the facts of this ‘religion’ not more widely known? Ugh……

    Nobody drew a parallel with the Rotherham (and other places) muslim grooming gangs. Sorry: Asians, we are in Britain.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    So, Angelina Jolie says that ISIS’s use of rape is especially egregious and something should be done.
    Joan Smith, Chair of the Mayor of London’s Violence Against Women and Girls Panel writes in the Guardian “not so fast” and blames all men and all war because we men are all the same.

    Joan Smith should be hanged naked in Rotherdam for a week and then hanged naked in a less vibrant community, and then she can tell us if she feels a difference between the two.

    • Petey the First

      Just thinking as a Rotherham Muslim here, “Sure, they hanged her and she’s dead, but she’s naked so she’s just asking for it, right? Am I right my brother Mohammed, and my other brother Mohammed? “

    • WalterBannon

      she should just be hanged, until dead, along with all of the guardian staff
