This is how utterly and completely evil ISIS truly is:
The woman is young, perhaps 18, with olive skin and dark bangs that droop onto her face. In the Facebook photo, she attempts to smile but doesn’t look at her photographer.
The caption mentions a single biographical fact: She is for sale.
“To all the bros thinking about buying a slave, this one is $8,000,” begins the May 20 Facebook posting, which was attributed to an Islamic State fighter who calls himself Abu Assad Almani.
A few moments later the terrorist, who probably comes from Germany (Almani means “the German”), posted a photo of another young woman. This girl also has olive skin, but her eyes are red because she cried so much.
In the caption, Almani writes:
Another sabiyah [slave], also about $8,000.
Most worryingly, not one of his followers or friends on Facebook thinks it’s bad to offer sex slaves for sale. The only “angry” reactions he got were about the price (they thought $8,000 was too much) and about the fact that the girls weren’t covered. His answer to his critics? “The law of supply and demand.”
In August of last year, the United Nations warned that ISIS was peddling girls “like barrels of petrol.” The UN’s Zainab Bangura explained:
One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men. Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom.
Many of ISIS’ sex slaves are Kurds and, more specifically, Yazidis. The Yazidis are a minority religion, deemed by ISIS to be “infidels.” As such, the terrorists believe they can do as they please with Yazidi men and women. The former were butchered when ISIS invaded Yazidi lands; the latter were kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery.
The worst part of this story is that the international community couldn’t care less about the horrific fate of these girls and women. Sure, a few thousand Yazidi girls are treated as sex slaves by ISIS, but what about global warming?! Let’s do something about that first; that’s the real threat to humanity!
It’s worse than sad. If the West — Europe and the United States — had any sense of morality left, they’d wipe ISIS off the map today. Instead, we’re content to drop a few bombs on their heads every now and then, after which we ignite a passionate debate about which toilets transgenders should use.
