ISIS releases 'abhorrent' sex slaves pamphlet

The Isis militant group has released what appears to be an “abhorrent” pamphlet providing its followers with guidelines on how to capture, keep and sexually abuse female slaves.

Published before the CIA report into the “enhanced interrogation” of suspected militant detainees, it specifically rules out the use of torture.

But what it does provide is a sickeningly matter-of-fact set of “questions and answers” when it comes to capturing and subjugating those of other beliefs.

Though it could not be independently verified, the list is believed to have been printed on 3 December by Isis’s in-house publishers on behalf of the group’s “Research and Fatwa Department”.

It has been translated in detail by the Washington, DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute, and researchers at the anti-extremism thinktank Quilliam say it “can be traced back to some of [Isis’s] most active propagandists”.

Researchers at the University of Bristol’s Gender and Violence Research Centre said last month that Isis had kidnapped more than 2,500 women belonging to the Yazidi religious minority in Syria and Iraq, while at least 4,600 are reported missing. The centre’s Nazand Begikhani told CNN the women are “treated like cattle”.

The pamphlet makes clear in excruciating detail exactly what this treatment involves – and how it is actively encouraged in Isis’s twisted interpretation of Islam.

It explains that it is “permissible” to take non-Muslims captive, making particular mention of the kitabiyat or “People of the Book” – Jews and Christians.
