Slaves of genocidal misogyny: women’s fight for survival

The image of Islamic State is the face of a terrorised girl. The weeping Yazidi child enslaved by jihadist men, the torment of a woman stripped naked as Islamists cut her throat, the decapitated body of a Christian child held by her grief-stricken father.

Islamic State’s thirst for violence is so insatiable that survivor testimonies are flooding international agencies less than a year after its reign of terror began. ­Amnesty International’s report Escape from Hell documents ­Islamic State’s burgeoning speciality: the torture of women and girls.

The UN recently disclosed survivor accounts of jihadist brutality, among them an adolescent girl who had been raped repeatedly by Islamic State soldiers before being sold at market. The caliphate has reportedly established an outlet where enslaved women and girls are fitted with price tags and sold to jihadists.

    The feminist response: “Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.”

      No, that’s the Muslim response.

      The feminist response is “Harder, Ahmed, harder! Call me your slave girl!” Something about empowerment.

        I looked at one organization, Equality Now, which purports to militantly fight sex crimes and human trafficking of women and girls. Their most recent press releases gush about the lavish meetings their big shots attended and actions they initiated that nibble on the fringes, while ISIS remains the elephant in their parlor. And they purport to be more aggressive than NOW or other organizations of that ilk.

    Gee, do you think muslim atrocities will be on display at the new museum of islamic propaganda in Toronto.

    • eMan14

      Problem with that is that the progressive narrative states that atrocities committed by Muslims are not representative of Islam, therefore cannot be on display in the said museum. Islam is peace don’t ya know.

        Atrocities committed by people who appear to be puslums and have beliefs identical to all other puslums but who are not representative of puslums because that would make pislam look bad.

    They are just noticing this now? At this rate there will not be any non muzz by the time they decide to take any action.

      The Australian only notices because, like all News Corp papers, it’s Saudi controlled.
