ISIS Jihadists Seize Small Children And Rape Them

By Theodore Shoebat

It has now been revealed that ISIS is raping children who they kidnap. As one report says:

“The Islamic State’s litany of horrific crimes against the Yazidis in Iraq only keeps growing,” Fred Abrahams, an Human Rights Watch (HRW) special adviser, said in a news release about the report.

“We heard shocking stories of forced religious conversions, forced marriage, and even sexual assault and slavery — and some of the victims were children,” Abrahams said.

On Sunday ISIL appeared for the first time to admit to such practices, attempting to rationalize them in the latest edition of a magazine the group publishes.

“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” read an article in Dabiq magazine, attributed to ISIL spokesman Mohammed al-Adnani and addressing those who do not subscribe to the group’s interpretation of Islam.

“The enslaved Yazidi families are now sold by the Islamic State soldiers,” another Dabiq article read. “The Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Shariah [Islamic law] amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated in the Sinjar operations.”

The report also said ISIL fighters pried male children from the arms of their mothers, fathers and brothers, saying the boys would receive religious education and indoctrination, then recruitment into the group.

“They took the small boys from their mothers. If the mothers refused, they grabbed the children by force. They slapped protesting mothers, shot their guns in the air, and said, ‘We’ll kill you if you don’t [let your children go],’” the HRW report quoted a 15-year-old Yazidi girl as saying. She said she had escaped from a Palestinian ISIL fighter who purchased her for $1,000.

The U.N. Human Rights Office and the U.N. Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) said in in the report that forces from ISIL — a Sunni group — have committed gross human rights violations and violence of an “increasing sectarian nature” against groups including Christians, Yazidis and Shia Muslims in a widening conflict that has forced 1.8 million Iraqis to flee their homes.

“These include attacks directly targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, executions and other targeted killings of civilians, abductions, rape and other forms of sexual and physical violence perpetrated against women and children, forced recruitment of children, destruction or desecration of places of religious or cultural significance, wanton destruction and looting of property, and denial of fundamental freedoms,” the UNAMI report said.
