The answer is in that piece on ISIS's songs and poetry that I cited this morning.In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.
Both before and after he raped her, he prostrated himself in Islamic prayer:
“He told me,” the girl recounted, “that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.”
This was no isolated incident. A fifteen-year-old girl who had been forced into sex slavery recalled:
“He kept telling me this is ibadah” – that is, worship of Allah. “He said that raping me is his prayer to God. I said to him, ‘What you’re doing to me is wrong, and it will not bring you closer to God.’ And he said, ‘No, it’s allowed. It’s halal.’”
All this is reminiscent of Hamas’ statement:
“Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to God.”What kind of god is this?
We sold our soul to AllahEmphasis added.
And marched on the road to martyrdom.
