Girls between ages 1-9 are kidnapped, sold, and bought at slave bazaars then married and remarried throughout Islamic-controlled areas. Less expensive than livestock, “sabaya” (girl sex slaves) are worth less than $200.
While ISIS may be orchestrating most of the child sex trafficking and condones institutionalized violence against women as a “righteous act,” it is important to understand this is not extremism and mirrors Muhammad’s behavior and instruction.
Muhammad did everything the Qur’an permits: marrying multiple women (4:3), including slaves (4:24), prepubescent girls (65:4), and beating wives as a form of punishment (4:34).
It is no coincidence that no 9 year-old girls can be found in Syria, Iraq, Libya and other areas experiencing humanitarian crises. Muhammad’s last wife Aisha, was 9 when he consummated the marriage, and he punched her in the chest (Sahih Muslim 4:2127).
As a result of the Arab Spring, most Iraqi Christian and Yezidi 1-9 year-old girls are kidnapped and sold, categorized, stripped, shipped naked, examined upon arrival by their buyer, distributed like produce or packages of beef—in groups of hundreds.
