Avoiding Temptation Through Slavery

This is the sort of news story that would normally be filed under “News of the Weird”. However, for those who have had the misfortune to study Islam closely, this woman’s recommendations aren’t really weird at all.

According to the Kuwait Times:

Female activist calls for legalizing sex slavery

KUWAIT: A female political activist and former parliamentary candidate has recommended the introduction of legislation to legalize the provision of enslaved female concubines for Muslim men in Kuwait in a bid, she says, to protect those men from committing adultery or corruption.

The activist, Salwa Al-Mutairi, suggested apparently seriously in a video broadcast online that she had been informed by some clerics that affluent Muslim men who fear being seduced or tempted into immoral behavior by the beauty of their female servants, or even of those servants ‘casting spells’ on them, would be better to purchase women from an ‘enslaved maid’ agency for sexual purposes.

She suggested that special offices could be set up to provide concubines in the same way as domestic staff recruitment agencies currently provide housemaids.

“We want our youth to be protected from adultery,” said Al-Mutairi, suggesting that these maids could be bought as prisoners of war in war-stricken nations like Chechnya to be sold on later to devout merchants.

“This is not religiously forbidden,” she added, indicating that Caliph Haroun Al-Rashid (766-809 AD) was married to one woman but possessed 200 concubines.

A better example of islamic morality and ethics there is not.

This shows how the Muslims could become the allies of the Christians in Europe in reversing the trend towards immorality in society and upholding family values. Bring on the dialogue!

In response to Salome:

Christians? In Europe/Eurabia? I'll
bet there are more Muslims than Christians there now -- the rest are amoral atheists.

What the good Muslim woman left out of her narrative is which religious group wouldn't qualify to be a slave.

Of course Muslims are still enslaving kufrs/infidels to this day in Mauritania and the Sudan. It could be said to be practiced in Turkey as well -- where the only women being held as sex slaves are kufr/infidels and no Turkish Muslim pimp has ever been arrested or prosecuted for sexual slavery/prostitution in that fine (LOL) country.

Hey Cornholio, I'm an atheist. Thanks for that, I don't have a soul to rot in hell, you do though.
What a backward person you are.

JHR - your comment nails it!

"I don't have a soul" = amoral

"amoral = about people who have no moral code or about places or situations where moral considerations do not apply"

The amoral atheists are the ones who couldn't care less about the overwhelming Muslim predilection for slaughtering and persecuting people of other faiths, because they think that's a good thing. The amoral atheists are the ones who think Jerusalem should be given to the Muslims, after all the amoral atheists don't give a damn if it's the religious center of the Jewish faith.

I don't know that all atheists are amoral. I know of a few atheists who have morals. Despite not having a religious basis for their morality, nonetheless, the ones I have met will fight against jihad because of the right to not believe in God as a matter of choice or philosophy.

Along the lines of socialism; I guess wealth redistibution would take away the means to infidelity, now wouldn't it? If you are too poor to afford a concubine, then you can't be unfaithful. Why is it that men are unable to resist? What a hypocritical thing to do. Enable the behavior.

Would this Muslim female have any objections to her daughter/ daughters (assuming she's married and has some) being sold into slavery as concubines, I wonder?

Highly unlikely, indeed, but it's fine and dandy for the daughters of non-Muslims to be subjected to such degradation, nevermind the dreadful pain and unbearable suffering heaped upon hapless females and their families.

Coming from female who should be defending her own gender not aiding and abetting its enslavement especially that of a sexual nature, this idea of her's is totally outrageous.

Off with her head for even articulating such a wicked and vile suggestion most particularly in the political domain.

I've noticed the amoral atheist bastards don't give a good goddamn that Muslims are busily slaughtering and persecuting people of other faiths all over the world.
