Islamic State Is Selling Yazidi Girls As Slaves For $10

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A displaced Yazidi Iraqi carries his daughter as they cross the Syrian border at Fishkhabour.

We knew that IS forces have taken girls and women as hostages. Some are Yazidis, some are ordinary Iraqis, and some are other. Here is the story of one girl who was captured and will be sold. She phoned her family and spoke with her father. I can not imagine his state of mind – or hers.

This is from the UK Guardian:

For the past week, Khandhar Kaliph’s hands have trembled whenever his phone has rung.

He nervously greeted his daughter, who had been kidnapped when the Islamic State (Isis) overran the Yazidi city of Sinjar. There was a minute of silence, before he broke down sobbing.

“She said she is going to be sold as a slave this afternoon, for $10,” Kaliph said, his tears dropping into the brown dust. “What can a father say to that. How can I help? We all feel so useless.”

Kaliph’s daughter, who he did not want to name, had access to a group phone passed around between other girls imprisoned by the Islamic State in Bardoush prison in central Mosul.

All face the imminent prospect of being married off. Or worse, being used by the jihadis as a sex slave.

“The world needs to know that is where our women are, where they are being enslaved, young and old alike,” he said, sitting in the dirt outside a building site near the Iraqi Kurdish city of Dohuk that he and some 70 other Yazidis are now using as shelter.”

Where are the western feminists? They are only concerned with themselves. They care nothing for other women. Not one of them is speaking out against this outrage. Feminist leaders in the United States turn their backs on women who are actually being mistreated. They, instead, invent stories of mistreatment in order to do what their primary goal is: To raise money to pay themselves large salaries.

They are despicable.
