Islamic State’s medieval morals
Islamic State's goal isn't primarily about money or sex, but about sending the message that they are creating an Islamic utopia
It’s been 150 years since US law allowed masters to rape enslaved girls and women. Almost all modern Muslim societies banned slavery in the last century. So why is Islamic State turning back the clock, actively embracing and promoting enslavement of Yazidi women, thereby enabling them to be raped under one interpretation of classical Islamic law?
