Liberal social justice warriors – including many women – who insist that Islam is a religion of peace, conveniently omit the very real atrocities committed in the name of that religion.
Rape and slavery are specifically sanctioned in the Qur’an, the book whose set of rules are the cornerstone of ISIS soldiers’ world view.
At the recent Women in the World Summit held in New York City, the progressive media reported on the likes of Hillary Clinton and Samantha Bee, all but ignoring the speeches given by women who have witnessed the evil of Islamic terrorism.
From The Geller Report:
On Friday, Women for Women International founder Zainab Salbi interviewed two women on ISIS’ abuse of those who identify as Yazidi, a minority religion primarily located in northern Iraq. Both Shireen Ibrahim, a Yazidi once enslaved by ISIS, and Feryal Pirali, a Yazidi activist, spoke at the Women in the World Summit held in New York City.
In the middle of their discussion, Pirali revealed her inspiration to become an activist for her people: the cruelty her friend endured at the hand of ISIS.
“She was my friend, we were basically in high school together,” stressed Pirali, who hails from Sinjar, Iraq. But, unlike her friend, Pirali left Iraq in 2010.
Staying behind, the friend married and became pregnant with a baby girl. But things took a savage twist in 2014 when ISIS captured their hometown.
“When they were trying to run away,” Pirali said of the Yazidis, her friend “couldn’t run a lot” because “she was heavy, she was pregnant.”
To ensure they escaped ISIS, her friend urged her relatives to go ahead without her. “Just save yourself. Go,” the friend told her family.
“And she was going to walk slowly until she gets to where they are,” Pirali added. “But unfortunately, she didn’t make it.”
Because she lagged behind, ISIS found her and tortured her in unimaginable ways.
“And what they did to her, opened up her stomach,” Pirali gestured with her hands, from one side of her stomach to the other. “Like from here to here, they opened her up, and they got her baby girl out, they raped the baby, and they also raped her.”
While her baby perished, the friend survived.
“They thought she was dead,” Pirali said of ISIS. “They left her behind … but her family came back, saw her. Just like that. In that situation.”
The media all but refuse to report on stories like this, which is the real war on women. With all their talk of women’s bodies, the feminist media appear to prioritize abortion and birth control over the grave human rights violations committed by terrorist groups. Self-absorbed, entitled progressive women are all about the perceived injustices they face, while ignoring the atrocities that face the women who live in the midst of Islam.
