The Islamic State militant group has released a guide to the capture, punishment and rape of female non-believers. It outlines how to use them as their sex slaves and also justifies child rape. The guide appears in the form of questions and answers about how to capture and subjugate woman of other beliefs. The sickening list appears to have been printed on December 3 by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in-house publishers for their“Research and Fatwa Department”. The document has been translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an NGO based in Washington DC. Researchers from the anti-extremism think tank Quilliam told the Independent that they believed it “can be traced back to some of ISIS’s most active propagandists.” It’s known the Islamic State has kidnapped more than 2,500 women, and another 4,600 are missing. In their twisted, medieval interpretation of Islam the document makes crystal clear how these woman are treated, and that such treatment is permissible because the captives are non-Muslims. The rules then state that it’s alright to rape a slave “immediately after taking possession of her” and that it is “permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse.” In the simplistic document, called ‘Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves’, slave woman are referred to as al-Sabi and they can only be taken from ‘ahl al-harb’, a group of people with whom the IS considers itself at war – in other words, anyone who doesn’t follow their extreme interpretation of the Koran. Among some of the points on the list were: "It is permissible to beat the female slave as a form of darb ta'deeb [disciplinary beating], but it is forbidden to use darb al-takseer [literally, breaking beating], [darb] al-tashaffi [beating for the purpose of achieving gratification], or [darb] al-ta'dheeb [torture beating]. Further, it is forbidden to hit the face."
