Yazidi Women Held As Sex Slaves, But Don’t Ask Obama What To Do About It

The reports will turn a normal person’s stomach and fill their hearts with rage.

ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State – whatever it wants to be called these days – reportedly has hundreds of Yazidi women who were captured in the Mount Sinjar area held in the prison in Mosul as sex slaves. The accounts are chilling.

Survivors who managed to escape from ISIS say the women held in its prison in Mosul face two fates: Those who convert to Islam are sold as brides to Islamist fighters for prices as low as $25, and ranging up to $150. Those who do not convert face daily rape and a slow death.

Accounts of the prison have come from women who managed to hide their cellular phones, calling relatives to describe their plight. Some imprisoned women have been forced by militants to call their families. The mother of one woman still held captive told The Daily Beast about the call she received from her daughter. She was forced to listen as her daughter detailed being raped by dozens of men over the course of a few hours. Still other women testified that multiple children had been born under these conditions, with the newborns ripped away from their mother’s arms to fates unknown.

But remember, ISIS was just the “JV” league last January.

Mosul’s Badush prison, where the women are enslaved, has become a literal house of horrors since the Islamic State seized control of the area. During the ISIS initial assault on Mosul in June, Badush’s gates were opened and 670 Shia inmates executed. This massacre, which was confirmed by 20 survivors and 16 eyewitnesses, according to U.N. Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay, marked only the beginning of the horrors that have occurred inside the prison after it fell under ISIS control.

Since ISIS seized Mosul in June it has used the prison to hold captured women as sex slaves, according to multiple reports, before trafficking them to third parties. Some of these women are the Yazidis who were taken during the fall of Sinjar, but they are not alone. While the number of Yazidi women have been estimated in the hundreds, sources in Iraq say that the number is even higher and includes members of other minority groups, like Turkomans and Christians.

In the face of confirmed atrocities, what does President Obama have planned for ISIS? Ummm… he’ll get back to you on that. When asked about how he was going to deal with these animals, and if that would mean chasing ISIS through Syria, President Present made a most beautiful statement of eloquent inaction to show how serious he was.

You know, I have consulted with Congress throughout this process. I am confident that as commander in chief I have the authorities to engage in the acts that we are conducting currently. As our strategy develops, we will continue to consult with Congress, and I do think that it’ll be important for Congress to weigh in and we’re — that our consultations with Congress continue to develop so that the American people are part of the debate.

But I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet. I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them. At that point, I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.

You can watch this stunning oratory for yourself.

What a leader we have! Consult! Develop! Make strategy! Consult more! Assess! Plan! Consult again!

ISIS is probably shaking right now – from laughter, not fear.

I guess if you are listening hard enough after you drink the Kool-Aid, you might hear what White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest heard…

But it sure wasn’t what everyone else heard. Even loyal liberal Nick Kristof wasn’t buying it.

But while everyone sits around and gapes at the Obama Not-A-Plan, Yazidi women are being brutalized, raped, and sold into slavery. You would think that women’s activist groups would be standing up and screaming for action against ISIS. Well, Code Pink is too busy dumping buckets of dirt on their heads to show their “solidarity” with Gaza, so I guess they are too busy to care about the abuse and trafficking of women in Mosul at the moment.

Hey, Mr. President? I have a plan for ISIS. It involves turning the sand at their feet into glass. I have a feeling you won’t like it. How I wish you would actually get angry and care about something other than the conditions on the golf course. You might actually make a difference here if you did.

    The silence from the western *feminist* groups over the plights of their ‘sisters’ globally has never ceased to amaze me…hypocrites all…
