ISIL fatwa details 15 rules for raping female slaves without violating religious law
Coldly itemized in 15 points, a newly discovered fatwa from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant outlines the particulars of when it believes a follower can rape a woman without violating Sharia law.
Released by Reuters on Tuesday, Fatwa No. 64 is dated Jan. 29, 2015 and details the extremist group’s rules for sexual slavery, a topic ISIL theologians say has “not been dealt with in ages.” The document was found by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid in Syria in May.
ISIL’s Committee of Research and Fatwa justifies the violence by suggesting that one of the “inevitable” consequences of jihad is that the women and children of infidels will become captives.
Earlier this year, Human Rights Watch interviewed 20 women and girls who escaped from ISIL and described a system of organized rape and sexual assault. The women reported girls as young as eight were traded among ISIL fighters or given as gifts. ISIL considers the women and girls, many from the Yazidi religious minority, as “spoils of war.”
Women are considered chattel in the fatwa
