I don’t agree with liberals and radical feminists on every issue, and the left and I often disagree in other areas. For example, though I don’t subscribe to the wanton killing of animals for sport, I was not able to join in the crusade against the dentist who killed Cecil the lion.
However, I am confident I will be able to join in the upcoming worldwide crusade of indignation against a recent occurrence in Mosul, Iraq.
Although the story has not yet made headlines and dominated the social media like Cecil-mania, I am sure it is only a matter of time. After all, it pertains to the ill treatment of women and we are all familiar with the almost universal demand by women for female and transsexual rights.
What am I talking about? The Mosul 19.
For the unenlightened, or those who may not have already guessed, this recent lead paragraph from the Clarion Project sums up the situation fairly simply: “The Islamic State (ISIS) executed 19 women in Mosul, Iraq for refusing to sexually submit to the terror organization’s jihad fighters, according to reports by the Kurdistan Democratic Party in the city.”
Now I know every women’s rights activist group is going to be up in the air about this, and there will no doubt be marches and calls for the elimination of ISIS worldwide, and especially here in America. Besides, religion is involved – and we know how anti-religious many of these groups are.
Here is a summary of the root cause of the situation:
“Jihad eh-nikah, or sexual jihad, is the term used to describe the practice of women volunteering themselves sexually to jihadi fighters to boost their morale and their desire to continue fighting to establish an Islamic state.” The news report continues: “One year ago, when the Islamic State (ISIS) swept through Mosul in a lightning takeover, posters appeared in the city stating, ‘We call upon the people of this county to bring their unmarried girls so they can fulfill their duty in sex jihad for their warrior brothers in the city and anyone who will not appear will feel the full force of the sharia [Islamic law] upon him.’”
Apparently, any evidence of not being “patriotic” was frowned upon by the “freedom fighters,” as the article concludes:
“Reports in the city at the time indicated Islamic State (ISIS) fighters went door-to-door, entering houses, killing the men and raping the women. It remains unclear in this case why the 19 girls were executed rather than simply taken and raped, as has been the case in every location the Islamic State has seized.”
After the outcry against the “brutal death” of Cecil, this more recent act of barbarism will surely generate outrage, demonstrations and social media outpourings across the world, demanding the U.N., and America in particular, take steps to prevent a recurrence of such a heinous act, just as they did with Cecil-mania.
Facebook, Twitter and all other social networks will be deluged by outraged feminists demanding justice for the Mosul 19. (I already have my computer ready to print out my “MOSUL 19″ banner.)
There can be no question that all leftists, feminists and activists who stand for sexual civil rights, liberties and transgenderism are outraged and will not stand idly by in view of this insensitive, brutal display of masculine aggression. I just need to know where the first demonstration or march is going to be held.
On the other hand, I could be wrong. After all, Cecil was an exquisite, rare, highly prized animal, a regal lion, king of the jungle – and these girls were only human beings.
