Sex And Terrorism?

I'm not the first, and I will not be the last, to suggest a connection between terror and sex--or more specifically perversion and rape. In fact, I noted that some feminists had already touched on the subject, but, as the linked article criticizes, when has anything not been linked to sex or rape by feminists? The main contribution to the question, and I am merely posing the question, is that sexual dominance and warfare have an arguable connection.

Jamie Glazov is the main author of articles I found on the subject over at Frontpage, but I will admit he's is a little strange. Before we get to him, let's talk a little basics. First, I'm questioning a connection between Islamic-terror and sex. Under the heading of sex I'm filing: misogyny, rape, and sexual slavery. Second, let's just establish a few facts about Islamic sexual mores. In Islam homosexuality is forbidden, sodomy is forbidden, premarital sex is forbidden, and the punishments are often very harsh.


Men may have up to 4 wives, but there may be some tradition of "temporary wives." Basically, one might be able to argue that there is a culture of misogyny in the Islamic/Arab world, and Galzov rushes to do just that. He points out, "Women are the incarnation of shahwa [desire]." Glazov tells us that in Islamic tradition hell is mostly full of women. Even the 72 virgins or Houri are a symbol of the culture's misogyny:

As Fatna Sabbah notes, she [the houri] "has no spiritual dimension; she is a thing because she has neither will nor any possibility of development. . . . [she] has no intellect; she does not think. She is a thing that awaits consumption." The houri is a manifestation of the ultimate misogyny.

Glazov goes on to criticize the treatment and sometimes infanticide of female babies in Islam. He gets a little out there, but the point is that women are oppressed in Islam. Not shocking news. In fact, if you don't know what FGM is I suggest you sit down before reading this article. Now, I want to take a second and admit that the interpretation of traditions and such can be twisted that's exactly why towards the end I'm going to point to news reports of events, although Glazov does mention many a report. However, there is a creeping shadow of "exceptions" that keeps being cited, like this horror story of a woman imprisoned, set up by a guard for the death penalty and then "married" by the guard before her death.


Rape is forbidden but as we'll see there's twist. The Quranic rule applies: "If one is forced, without willful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then he is guiltless, For God is Oft-Forgiving Most-Merciful'. (2:173) Notice that the first question is the guilt of the victim. According to Glazov, rape victims are routinely treated as criminals, and he suggests a culture of rape in the Islamic or Arab world. It is not unheard of. In Pakistan recently--suggesting a comfort-level with the idea of rape that is hard to fathom--there was a tribal council ordered gang-rape as punishment. Listen to this insanity:

A village council allegedly ordered the rape because [the rape victim's] younger brother was seen with a woman from the more influential Mastoi clan. Ms Mai and her brother say the allegations were made to cover up a sexual assault on the boy by a group of Mastoi men.

Which is an excellent lead into Glazov's most controversial piece. Where he claims that the sexually repressed Arab culture has a epidemic of rape, including victimizing young boys--boys that grow to be angry, violent men. While this seems to contradict the idea of super-manly misogynists, the comparison is made in this slightly creepy article to prison rape. Recent reports suggest at least some truth to the accusation of child abuse in Muslim countries.


Slavery is forbidden by Islam--among Muslims. But slavery has a long history in Islam, so does the practice of sexual slavery, and the slave trade continues to this day. In fact, there are accounts of boys being taken and, when freed, reporting abuse, including sexual abuse. In Iran there are reports of a thriving sex slave trade. Sudan is, of course, the most famous:

Women and children abducted in slave raids are roped by the neck or strapped to animals and then marched north. Along the way, many women and girls are repeatedly gang-raped. ...In the north, slaves are either kept by individual militia soldiers or sold in markets. ... "Some who try to escape have their Achilles tendons cut to hamper their ability to run. Masters typically use women and girls as domestics and concubines, cleaning by day and serving the master sexually by night." ... Thus says one leading slavery abolitionist group. A former slave writes of "the rape of girls and boys alike, the forced circumcision of boys and girls, often with them fully conscious and screaming and having to be held down by many people. Sodomy and sadistic torture are common. Living hell."

For those of you wondering what all these loosely connected subjects have to do with Islamo-fascist terrorism, the answer is nothing. Or more precisely, maybe nothing. Because I mean to answer nothing, just ask the question in good-faith: what, if any, connection do these issues have. Let's look at three important and purely evil subjects that may suggest an answer to our question. 1) UBL, 2) Saddam's Iraq, and 3) Darfur and Belsan.


Kola Boof. Never heard of her? Well, she claims to have been held as a concubine by Osama Bin Laden for a short time. Judging by the lack of interest in the West in her story I'm sure their's some kind of problem--like the whole thing might be a pack of lies. Regardless, I'm not the Washington Post, I don't have to do anything more than Google a story a couple of ways before I write about it. Supposedly, she's a hated woman in the Muslim world, and maybe even has a fatwa on her head. Here's some of the story, (WARNING: this account is extremely graphic!) :

"I met Osama Bin Laden in Marrakech in 1996. ... Osama Bin Laden has 25 kids (I always count the 2 Black ones)...he loves whores. He loves infidels as long as they're pretty women from the Western world. He likes to beat them, bite them and hurt them with his "member". He has no respect for women whatsoever--you can either be his whore or his maid, or both (in the case of his wives), take your pick. We met at a restaurant, I was there with some Senegalese soccer player I was dating... Osama came in with his gang. I had no idea who he was....friends later told me that he was..."to be obeyed"..."a prophet"..."a lion"..."the son of a rich Saudi Arabian". ... He ordered his men to intrude on me and my date...and to bring me to his table. I went to his table trembling. ... He raped me that first night...with a bag over my head--this is not a joke. He raped me with a bag over my head. He came back two more nights that week (always with his men)--without warning. It was no longer rape. I was trapped in Morocco and I had no money. When he first beat me up (with a snake stick), the police only arrived to ask him to "do it more quietly". ... Osama Bin Laden moved me to an extremely expensive and important place in Morocco--the famous La Maison Arabe. He paid for my room for 6 months. For 4 of those 6 months...I was his concubine. There is no other way to describe it. When Osama was out of town...his men watched everything I did. I was forced to dress completely covered up, head to toe, as a Muslim woman--outdoors. Indoors, I was to dress in silky negligee's, my hair (which is long) styled in a White woman's hairdo. The fact that my vagina is "infibulated" and marked tribally was Osama's main physical attraction to me--he is very well endowed and enjoyed causing me pain during intercourse, because I was much too small for him. In fact, he seeks out women who are infibulated with openings too small for grown men--other than the husbands, who of course would be more gentle and patient. I was only allowed to go out shopping...and then his men always followed me. Luckily, in about 4 months Osama became tired of me. He paid for me to live at the hotel another 2 months. He became interested in some blond French woman from Crete. There was another one, too, a Jewish stripper in Casablanca. Thanks to those women and their interest in Bin Laden's money, I was able to sell some of the gifts he gave me and escape to Spain."

Yeah, crazy, crazy stuff. I do not know what to make of that, but, if in fact UBL is this kind of deviant, maybe that tells us something.


Again there's a problem with the truth in Iraq--knowing what really happened under Saddam's rule is hard, but it seems clear there were "rape rooms" and at least one person claiming to know Uday Hussien well backs up the reports of unspeakable horrors.

Every day Uday Hussein and his bodyguards drove around the university and the girls’ schools until the president’s son saw a girl he fancied. He would stop her and ask her to spend the night with him. If she refused, his bodyguards would grab her and bring her back to the palace. There Uday would rape the girl. If she resisted, after he was done, he would give her to the whole team of bodyguards. Uday learned rape and murder from his father. Reveals Latif: “Saddam’s family, the Tikriti clan, were a bunch of criminals. When Saddam came to power it was like the mafia taking control of a country.”…“Hundreds of thousands had no way to feed their families. But Uday didn’t care. He continued to party openly, without shame.” Uday threw a multi-million dollar extravaganza on his birthday. A thousand people dined on lobster and delicacies. Hundreds of beautiful girls were invited. At one point Uday shouted, “Rip the whores’ clothes off!” His friends shredded the women’s clothing and the party turned into a massive orgy.

And there's more evil:

After three days the girl was returned to her home, with a new dress, a new watch and a large sum of cash. Her parents had her tested for rape; the result was positive. According to Shabaan's account, Uday heard she had been tested and sent aides to the clinic, where they warned doctors not to report a rape. Furious, the father demanded to see Saddam himself. Rebuffed, he kept complaining publicly about what Uday had done. After three months, the President's son had had enough. He sent two guards to the man to insist that he drop the matter. Uday had another demand: that the ex-governor bring his daughter and her 12-year-old sister to his next party. "Your daughters will be my girlfriends, or I'll wipe you off the face of the earth." The man complied, surrendering both girls

There's a guy that needed killing.


An excellent point is made by this article that rape is oddly connected to jihad.

“Each of us was raped by between three and six men….One woman refused to have sex with them, so they split her head into pieces with an axe in front of us.” This happened in Darfur, from which Sudanese military personnel actually airlifted women to Khartoum to serve as sex slaves. Meanwhile, Indira Dzetskelova, the mother of one of the child hostages in Beslan, Russia, reports that “several 15-year-old girls were raped by terrorists.” Her daughter “heard their terrible cries and screams when those monsters took them away.” This indicates that there are two things the massacre in Beslan have in common with the ongoing massacres in Darfur: both, no less than the 9/11 attacks, are examples of Islamic jihad terrorism, and both are characterized by rape.

--and sex. Because while these examples maybe not representative of true Islam, they are representative of jihadists and fundamentalists. The culture that many terrorist spring from is one of hyper-manly misogyny in which the reward for martyrdom is 72 sex-bots (or raisins according to Manji), and a culture of rape and sex slaves. Interesting to me is the "loop-holes" where one is allowed to rape the infidels that are captured and enslaved them and murder them. Do these kind of ideas and practices grow monsters that lash out at what they perceive as a threatening and vulnerable Western world? Or do the monsters create this culture? Maybe there's no connection. Maybe it's all racist lies designed to dehumanize Muslims.

One thing seems clear. If the Islamo-fascists are intent on setting up a Caliphate, as Bush says, I'm doubting that's a world any of us are going to want to live in.
