Straining at gnats while swallowing camels is increasingly how Islam’s apologists rationalize away the violence and hate Sharia engenders for the “infidel,” the non-Muslim. Consider the significance of yet another video of yet another learned Muslim justifying the enslavement and rape of non-Muslim women.
Suad Saleh, a female professor of doctrine at Al Azhar University, correctly defines the Arabic phrase melk al-yamin -- “right hand possession” (see Koran 4:3):
[Non-Muslim] female prisoners of wars are “those whom you own.” In order to humiliate them, they become the property of the [Muslim] army commander, or of a Muslim, and he can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives.
Ms. Saleh’s comments are not new or unique. Countless Muslims -- beginning withMuhammad himself -- have confirmed that Islam permits the sexual enslavement of non-Muslim women seized during the jihad.
Saleh cannot even take the “honor” of being the first Muslim woman to support this inherently misogynistic creed.
