New York Times: Quran Gives Islamic State Right to Rape

The New York Times last Thursday published a lengthy piece titled, “ISIS enshrines a theology of rape,” about how the Islamic State, or ISIS, cites Islamic theology to justify its brutal acts, claiming that the Quran “condones and encourages” raping women if they are not true believers of Islam.

It’s sickening and horrifying reading. Recounting one girl’s ordeal, the Times article reports that a Muslim of the Islamic State “knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her. When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.” As far as this monster was concerned, there was nothing hypocritical whatsoever about praying before and after committing rape: “‘I kept telling him it hurts – please stop,’ said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. ‘He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.'”
