Isis ran female auctions in Palmyra

From The Times and the Australian

Islamic State militants were running female slave auctions while they destroyed much of Palmyra, according to documents recovered by regime forces after they retook the ancient city.

In a notice issued to all fighters last June, a month after they took Palmyra, the jihadists said: “For those who want to buy a female slave, sign up at the battalion’s main office.” The statement was addressed to militants in Homs province, where Palmyra is located.

“As for our brothers who are on the road spreading Islam, there will be co-ordination with the battalion’s emir. Whomever does not sign up will not have the right to attend the slaves market. Prices are to be submitted in sealed envelopes at the time of buying,” the notice added.

  1. Something here doesn’t add up: How can the brothers who are on the road spreading Islam (which we are always told affords women great respect and freedom) reconcile the practice of buying and selling female slaves with their merciful (or so it is touted) religion?

    Of course, apologists for Islam tell us that ISIS is not Islamic, but since they are emulating Muhammad’s example of owning females slaves, we know that at least that aspect is authentic Islam. And if those actions are authentic, then where is Islam’s mercy and benevolence? Oh I forgot—cognitive dissonance.
