Video: Boko Haram threatens to sell abducted Christian girls into sex slavery

posted at 9:21 am on May 6, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

More than 200 Nigerian girls abducted from a government school will be sold into slavery, according to a videotape from the Islamist terrorist group that captured them. Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau taunted Nigerians and parents by telling them that the girls had become the “property” of Allah, presumably because of their Western education, and that he plans to sell his “slaves” in the market:

Shekau’s videotaped taunting of Nigerian government officials has triggered demonstrations in Nigeria, Europe and in at least four U.S. cities.

“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” Reuters quoted Shekau as saying, chuckling as he stands in front of an armored personnel carrier with two masked militants wielding AK-47s on either side of him.

“Allah has instructed me to sell them. They are his property and I will carry out his instructions,” he said.

The video emerged days after reports emerged last week that some of girls had been forced to marry their abductors — who paid a nominal bride price of $12 — and that others have been taken to neighboring Cameroon and Chad. NBC News could not verify those reports.

The name “Boko Haram” loosely translates to “Western education is forbidden.” The group is responsible for numerous bloodthirsty attacks on Christians in Nigeria, attempting to drive out Christianity and Western values, and replace them with shari’a law and their own rule. Nigerians had long complained about the ineffectiveness and even hostility from the Nigerian government toward Christians demanding a defense against this ongoing attempt at religious cleansing, but until this abduction, most nations had paid little attention to Boko Haram. The capture of young girls and the threat to sell them into slavery has put the government of Goodluck Jonathan under a harsh international spotlight, and perhaps will result in a larger and more effective effort against Boko Haram as a result.

The AP’s Michelle Faul puts the number of those abducted at 276, and reports on the story of one girl fortunate enough to escape:

The girls in the school dorm could hear the sound of gunshots from a nearby town. So when armed men in uniforms burst in and promised to rescue them, at first they were relieved.

“Don’t worry, we’re soldiers,” one 16-year-old girl recalls them saying. “Nothing is going to happen to you.”

The gunmen commanded the hundreds of students at the Chibok Government Girls Secondary School to gather outside. The men went into a storeroom and removed all the food. Then they set fire to the room.

“They … started shouting, `Allahu Akhbar,’ (God is great),” the 16-year-old student said. “And we knew.”

What they knew was chilling: The men were not government soldiers at all. They were members of the ruthless Islamic extremist group called Boko Haram. They kidnapped the entire group of girls and drove them away in pickup trucks into the dense forest.

The Nigerian government says they will have to negotiate with Boko Haram to get the girls back, but that sounds like a rather weak response. Boko Haram wants to eradicate Christianity from Nigeria and impose shari’a law, not launch a political party or acquire a traditional ransom. The “sale” of these slaves isn’t a fundraiser, after all, but a show of power and ruthlessness.

In the meantime, the cause has gone global. People around the world are pressuring their own governments to find ways to rescue the girls. Perhaps this is a moment for people to see past the platitudes of moral equivalency:

Let’s hope that this pressure convinces governments to take Boko Haram as a serious threat.

Update: The school was a government school, not a parochial school. I’ve fixed the first paragraph.

…telling them that the girls had become the “property” of Allah, presumably because of their Western education, and that he plans to sell his “slaves” in the market…

Nah, just because they are captives.

Qur’an (33:50) - “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee,” This is one of several personal-sounding verses “from Allah” narrated by Muhammad – in this case allowing himself a virtually unlimited supply of sex partners. Others are restrained to four wives, but may also have sex with any number of slaves, as the following verse make clear:

Qur’an (23:5-6) - “..who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess…” This verse permits the slave-owner to have sex with his slaves. See also Qur’an (70:29-30). The Quran is a small book, so if Allah used valuable space to repeat the same point four times then sex slavery must very important to him.

Not-so minor correction, Ed: it’s a government school, and many of these girls are probably Muslim.

When I lived in West Africa, I taught in an actual Christian school, and almost half of our students were Muslim – it was the only way for the parents to get their kids a good education.

The point is, Boko Haram doesn’t care – in fact, they will probably be harder on the Muslim girls than on the Christian ones, since they see them as apostate.

PatriotRider on May 6, 2014 at 9:44 AM

The name “Boko Haram” loosely translates to “Western education is forbidden.”

“Boko Haram” is actually a nickname for the group’s main, much longer name: “The Congregation of the People of Tradition for dawah and Jihad.” In other words, despite their nickname, they are nothing more than orthodox Muslims acting in accord with mainstream Islamic instruction.

As Akzed alluded to above, pedophilia and sex slavery are perfectly legal under Islamic law. There is no Muslim on earth that does not condone this. This is what we have to look forward to if we keep letting more Muslims into this country. The only reason they haven’t done this here yet is because they don’t have the power to … yet.

The way to stop this — if the Nigerian government really wants to — is to go to a Muslim village and kidnap every female there, all ages from infant to grandmother. If that’s not enough, go to another Muslim village and do the same. The Jihadists will listen to only one language, that of force, violence, and credible threats. “Negotiating” with kidnappers is fruitless.

Nigeria’s military is weak, even though they’ve got a big economy. Their border is more like Swiss cheese than our own. Boko has connections across the border for weapons, manpower and more.

It’s going to take more than international complaints to get Boko Haram to capitulate. I think I heard that they’ve captured more girls as of today.

Nigeria needs to figure out how to close up their border. Only by “trapping” them and showing a cohesive, strategic and strong response will Boko Haram begin to talk.

Right now the Nigerian government and the West is a weak horse in the eyes of Boko Haram. While some of their actions may be looked down upon by some of their “base” in Northern Nigeria, it’s going to take some strategy and effort to get BH’s supporters to see them as a poor administrative option.

Boko Haram’s got Nigeria and the West against a wall and they know it. They will continue to act with impunity until Nigeria gets its act together. And what will the west do? Send in UN peace keepers?! ….

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau is obviously trying to make a point.
He has a huge pile of chips, a following, and will probably do well in any negotiating and will become a hero to those that share in his culture and beliefs.

I don’t say that lightly, and I don’t think very many non-Muslims go to Hell, not even very many atheists.

God wants us to build our homes and our tribes, and He wants us to build a prosperous civilization, ultimately to the stars. Most American atheists (the ones I am familiar with) want that, too. Whether they know it or not, most of the decent ones are God’s allies. They follow His purpose for us.

Islam is civilization destroying. Always has been. Always will be. Wherever Islam has conquered, civilization has withered once the dhimmis die off. Islam strangles all free thinking. It is submission.

All real modern Muslims go to Hell. They have deliberately chosen to ally themselves with Satan and against God.

“The EU elections are going to be absolutely fundamental for France and for Europe, because the bankruptcy of EU countries is mainly due to the catastrophic politics of Brussels – globalisation, unfair competition, the total absence of protectionism of borders, immigration,” said Mr Rachline.
“In all areas, the EU is imposing its choices on France without any real democratic legitimacy – I see this is an issue for UKIP and others. Looking at the polls, we’re on course to do very well.

The more I think of this, the angrier I get. Just this past week, we saw the Secretary of State, accusing Israel of becoming an “apartheid state”, but in Nigeria, the kidnapping and rape of schoolgirls is par for the course from the so-called “Religion of Peace”. No one is shocked. No one is surprised.

The only time Democrats give a crap about women is when they think one might be prevented from butchering her near-term, unborn child.

Murf76 on May 6, 2014 at 11:28 AM

This is Private War done to the ends of those performing it, without any sanction. It does not matter if their ends are power, terror or mere monetary gain: they use weapons of war to their own end. Piracy is not limited to the sea and those waging Private War are doing just that. These are a threat to all Nations and all mankind as this is civilized man consciously reverting to savagery to get his way.

One man’s terrorist is another man’s terrorist, as they will be held accountable to no form of civilization and, instead, seek to enforce their will upon all mankind. Civilized man wears uniforms, puts in a structure of accountability, says who he is fighting to defend and that he will not transgress over the rules of war to achieve those ends. Pirates do none of that.

These men doing this are pirates.

All of al Qaeda are pirates.

All terrorists are pirates.

As we have been told pirates will liquidate all of civilized life to get their way. That is what they are doing now. They are your enemy no matter what group they are from or what their supposed cause is: from communists to islamists to radicalized hairdressers throwing pipebombs there is no difference in their classification.

They can be of any race, gender or ethnicity as this is civilized man consciously reverting to savagery. Such can never, ever be trusted to be civilized again. No jail can reform them as their very viewpoint of life now includes reclaiming all of war for himself to wage and that means that any tactic can be used to free himself to escape and wage such war again. Their word is empty on all counts and their lust to enforce their will evident at every turn.

Learn this well and then see who it is that is empowering the enemies of all mankind by giving such men aid and comfort, weapons and encouragement, money and means. These people are encouraging the destruction of civilization as a whole and think their own lives will be spared in such aid. They forget that savage man’s word is not to be trusted, ever.

Pirates do not just roam the sea.

They roam the land as well.

And some that help them roam the halls of power and hope to see the world burn.

But Subway is removing all ham and bacon from their sandwiches in London to appease the Muzzies…doesn’t that count for anything???…

About as well as appeasement has ever worked,anywhere, everywhere, sure!

Amendment X on May 6, 2014 at 11:56 AM

THIS is one of the exact reasons why the U.N. (should) exists! In response to this the U.N. should send in as many troops as it needs to in order to free these women, hunt down these SOBs, and kill/capture every one of them!

For all the Islamic Extremist sympathizers, like YOU, President Obama, welcome to the Islamic faith on display….yes, they TRULY deserve your loyalty, defense, and promotion while fanning the flames of the ‘war on Christiantiy’. I am sure glad you helped Al Qaeda take over Libya, helped the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt, and was too busy running guns to Islamic Extremists in Syria out of Benghazi to protect Ambassador Stevens and the other 3 Americans who were killed!

The progressive left probably thinks this is George Bushes fault.

KW64 on May 6, 2014 at 11:23 AM

As I remember, George W. Bush (playing the role of Grover Norquist’s sock puppet) repeatedly referred to Islam as the “Religion of Peace.”

Can we just once and for all pave a parking lot over these animals?

Just another culture, rubes.

Leftists are never liberal, never. They love tyranny, in all forms, so long as they are the capos.

Schadenfreude on May 6, 2014 at 12:19 PM

Again, no leftist on this thread. Liberals don’t care about women. They LIKE this story, no doubt. Selling Christian women into slavery? What leftist wouldn’t love to do that?

LibFreeOrDie, wherefore art thou? Black women being sold as slaves? Isn’t this your reason for existing?

Oh, wait. These are Christian women being sold by Muslims. Carry on! All hail the Caliphate!

This story is why, when the time comes, I don’t know that I’ll care if the US military (rather, more likely the Israeli military) ignores collateral damage. There is no collateral damage.

Hey dems…here is your ‘War on Women.’

Where are the drone attacks when you need them?

This is a global disgrace.

And Gothguy has it absolutely right at 9:24.

You gotta raise your voices a little bit, guys;
.
HEY Hillary ! … VALERIE ! … NANCY ! … DWS ! … SEN “Mam” BOXER ! … just where ARE all of you, on this ?

HEY, ALL YOU GIRLS ON THE PANEL OF “THE VIEW”! … CODE PINK ! … what d’y’all think about this ?

HEY KATIE ! … DIANE ! … RACHEL ! … ANDREA ! … MELISSA ! … GWEN ! … OPRAH !anybody out there ?
.
Ok … Michele Richinick (MSNBC) does have this article on their website: http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/militant-group-kidnaps-8-more-girls-nigeria

I guess that counts for something.

Send then SEALs.

davidk on May 6, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Send in the SEALs.

davidk on May 6, 2014 at 12:31 PM

Sooooo, are these guys racists, since they are actively engaging in actual slavery of young black girls – or does this not quite rise to the Cliven Bundy or Donald Sterling level of racism?

dentarthurdent on May 6, 2014 at 12:32 PM

Where is the president on this??? If I am not mistaken he has not Uttered one word on this group that has killed many Christians there. He also never made a remark on the killings of Christians in Egypt and Syria. By his silence is he in favor of these crimes by these satan-muzzies?? This man we have in the Whitehouse is evil and there is no doubt about it with me.

davidk on May 6, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Obviously: Send in the SEALs.
