– Media blackout: Syrian rebels gang raped, executed 15-year-old girl (Examiner, Sep 7, 2013):
Last month, Syriareport.net reported that a group of so-called ‘Syrian rebels’ kidnapped a Christian teenager in Al-Qusayr and repeatedly raped her for the next several days.
Elements of Jabhat al-Nusra (Syrian Al Qaeda)al and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) reportedly took part in the atrocity.
Once abducted, the girl identified only as “Miriam,” was forced into a temporary marriage with the commander of Jabhat al-Nusra and raped. He then renounced their marriage, only to pass her onto another militant for the same treatment.
One after another, a total of fifteen Islamist rebels “married” the young girl, raped her and renounced the marriage, a process which continued for more than two weeks.
After all had their way with her, the girl was executed.
To date, Syrian Report and the Modern Tokyo Times are the only news outlets to report this story.
In April, Sheikh Yasir al-Ajlawni issued a fatwa ordering Syrian rebels to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women.
Human Events reporter Raymond Ibrahim wrote:
The sheikh used Islam’s legitimate Arabic term for these hapless, non-Muslim women, melk al-yamin, a phrase that appears in Islam’s sacred book, the Koran, and which is simply a reference to non-Muslim sex-slaves. For example, Koran 4:3 commands Muslim men to “Marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four… or what your right hands possess.” Islam’s ulema, or “scholars,” are unanimously agreed that “what your right hands possess” is, according to Islamic law, simply a sex-slave. Linguistic evidence further suggests that she is seen more as an animal or a possession than a human—hence this inhuman fatwa.
In April, UN Secretary General on Sexual Violence Zainab Hawa Bangura told the UN Security Council of another deadly rape carried out by members of the FSA…
Bangura said: “The girl was raped, and then killed. Her body was thrown in front of her house.”
Of course, Jabhat al-Nusra and the FSA are supported by President Obama as well as by some members of Congress.
In May, Sen. John McCain went to Syria and met with the leadership of the FSA, promising them more support via the American taxpayer.
