Cutting off heads and persecuting religious minorities doesn’t leave much time for a social life. Thankfully there’s a new matchmaking service for today’s jihadi on the go. My name is Achmed and I enjoy killing infidels, rioting, explosions, and long walks on the beach…
Given the news out of the region recently, people were less than welcoming to the matchmaking service.
“The Islamic State/Caliphate horizons are rooted in early Islamic history,” Yigal Carmon, founder and president of Washington-based MEMRI said. “The Caliphate today is imitating that model, and therefore trying to invoke women in battle as was the spirit of women fighters in early Islam.”
Families in nations such as Tunisia and Yemen have reportedly sent their young daughters to take part in “sexual jihad,” entering into temporary “marriages” with jihadists, allowing them to have sex without violating their interpretation of the Koran.
At least three young women from Minnesota have traveled to the region to join Islamic State, according to a report by Daily Mail. The three women, believed to be from Minnesota’s Somali community, allegedly left their homes about three weeks ago, intending to become nurses tending to the injured jihadis injured in Syria and Iraq, the report said.
Another report by MEMRI [Middle East Media Research Institute] entails the capture of Yazidi women as sex slaves from the villages Islamic State has conquered in northern Iraq. The women are reportedly kept by fighters or sold as sex slaves.
Yet some women are still drawn this movement.
