Press TV — June 19, 2014
Foreign-backed ISIL militants in Iraq have called on the residents of the country’s major northern city of Mosul to offer their women to the Takfiri militants for sex.
In a statement released nearly a week ago, the notorious and well-armed militants have also threatened Iraqis in the northern city, with consequences if they fail to comply with the order.
The idea of offering sex to militants under the pretext of a holy war, referred to in Arabic as “Jihad-ul-Nikka,” first surfaced back in 2013.
At the time, a Saudi-based Wahhabi cleric issued a fatwa (religious edict) calling on women to offer themselves to the armed militants fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Wahhabism is a radical and deviant interpretation of Islam that is violently intolerant of any opposing points of view and issues religious edicts that contradict basic Islamic principles and values.
ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) is an al-Qaeda splinter terrorist group that is fighting the government of Syria and Iraq.
On June 10, the ISIL militants took control of Mosul, the capital of Nineveh Province, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) northwest of the capital Baghdad.
Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people have been forced out of their homes since the attacks.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has vowed that the country’s security forces would confront the foreign-sponsored terrorists, describing the seizure of Mosul as a “conspiracy.” Maliki has also said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are responsible for the security crisis and growing terrorism in his country, denouncing the Al Saud regime as a major supporter of global terrorism.
