ISIS posts pictures of Xtian women threatening that they will become sex slaves if ransoms are not paid
Kidnapping infidels and releasing them for ransom or killing them, as well as enslaving them if that option is deemed most advantageous for the Muslims, is fully sanctioned in Islamic law: “As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks’ (Qur’an sura 47, verse 4)” — Abu’l-Hasan al-Mawardi, al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah (The Laws of Islamic Governance), trans. by Dr. Asadullah Yate, (London), Ta-Ha Publishers Ltd., 1996, p. 192.
“ISIS post pictures of ‘Christian women kidnapped in Syria threatening that they will become sex slaves if ransom is not paid,’” by Jay Akbar, Mailonline, August 15, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Disturbing images which have appeared online could be of three Assyrian Christian women ISIS abducted in February.
In three ‘leaked’ images shared on social media, the women hold pieces of paper on which their names and a date – July 27, 2015 – are written.
It is feared this means they will be sold to ISIS fighters if their families or charities do not pay ransom for their release, although no figure appears on the signs they hold.
On Tuesday, ISIS released 22 of more than 220 Christians they snatched from several Assyrian farming communities it raided in Iraq’s north-eastern Hassakeh province, Syria, earlier this year.
The Assyrian Federation of Sweden has told MailOnline the women’s surnames resemble those of families who lived in the region, although they cannot completely verify they are Christians.
It also said the theory of them being ransomed off to fund ISIS is plausible but, once again, difficult to confirm.
One woman stands over her young daughter holding a sign which reads Susan Elias along with the date July 27, 2015.
The second, who is alone, is called Hannaa Assaf Youssef. The third woman is surrounded by what appears to be her own three children but the writing on the sign could not be made out accurately.
