We all know, at least in abstract terms, the sort of horror caused by the Islamic State group. However, it’s almost impossible to realize just how evil these extremists are without experiencing their monstrous behavior first-hand — or listening to someone who has.
Delan Dakheel Saeed, a Yazidi doctor in northern Iraq, spoke of such horrors at a conference in London. According to Reuters, Saeed — whose brother is the only Yazidi member in Iraq’s parliament — talked last week of the sexual violence wrought by the Islamic State savages against her people.
While the tales of sexual slavery and forced marriages of young girls is enough to turn your stomach even without elaboration, the 25-year-old Erbil-based doctor told the audience a chilling story of just how far Islamic State will go.
“I myself witnessed a 9-year-old girl who was raped and bled to death in front of her mother’s eyes,” Saeed said.
“There is not even a medical cure or physical cure, not even a mental cure.”
The Yazidis, whose beliefs are a mixture of Christianity, Islam and Zoroastrianism, have long been a target of the Islamic State group because of what they see as the Yazidis’ heretical views.
“After 14 months, the situation is the same, nothing has changed,” said Vian Dakheel Saeed, Delan Dakheel Saeed’s brother. “Nobody supports us.”
One might think that child-rape in the name of religion is a sick perversion of any faith.
However, here’s what Quran 5:33 says about unbelievers: “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”
Oh, and let’s talk about the prophet’s child bride, Aisha. As the Hadith (a collection of things said by Muhammad) says, “… she (Aisha) was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.” (Muslim 8.3311)
So, the prophet advocated the murder of unbelievers and countenanced the rape of children. When you read those, how on earth could this atrocity surprise you?
