After heeding the call months ago to surrender their bodies to jihadist fighters in Syria, upwards of 100 Tunisian women have returned home not only pregnant but also infected with the AIDS virus, as reported by the North African internet news portal the Tunis Times on Sept. 25, 2013.
As previously covered by Examiner.com, one of the leading Islamic clerics in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Muhammad al-‘Arifi, issued a fatwa (religious ruling) authorizing Muslim women and girls from throughout the world to travel to Syria to surrender up their bodies to rebel fighters so as to relieve their pent-up sexual frustration while attempting to establish a hard-core sharia law caliphate in Syria.
Devout Muslim girls were recruited by strict sharia-enforcing clerics to participate in a Jihad Niqa’h (holy war of prostitution) servicing anti-government personnel fighting against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
Approximately 100 Tunisian girls and women have returned home well into their pregnancies as well as infected with HIV.
A 19-year-old Tunisian identified only as Lamia relates that she and other women in her situation have come home to uncaring families and an indifferent society that has rejected them.
Five months pregnant and diagnosed as HIV-positive, Lamia rethat not only Tunisian girls, but Pakistanis, Afghans, Libyans, Iraqis, Saudis, and Somalis have made the trek to Syria to find themselves entrapped in sexual slavery.
Finding she would never be willingly set free by the jihadists until they were done using her sexually, Lamia took it upon herself to successfully escape, but others weren’t as fortunate.
One of the other Tunisian girls attempted to escape, but when caught was tortured to death by those she was initially convinced she was there to comfort in a fashion deemed acceptable.
