Islam and slavery

Apparently the talking heads in the media and the "fashionable" political circles of this country are very surprised and deeply outraged at the threats that a group of Islamic "terrorists" have made regarding selling over 200 kidnapped girls into sex slavery:
The leader of an Islamist militant group which has abducted hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls today vowed to sell them as sex slaves despite international outrage at the kidnappings.

Abubakar Shekau, the head of Nigerian extremists Boko Haram, said he would 'sell on the market' more than 270 girls captured by his fighters last month. 
The group – whose name means 'western education is forbidden' – snatched the children during a raid in the village of Chibok in northeast Nigeria last month, the French news agency AFP reported, citing a video it had obtained. 
In the video, Shekau declares: 'I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah.' 
He is seen dressed in combat fatigues standing in front of an armoured personnel carrier and two pick-up trucks mounted with sub-machine guns.

His message comes after former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is now a UN special envoy on education, led calls for Western governments including Britain to assist with their rescue.

A Foreign Office spokesman said the British government is in talks with their Nigerian couinterparts and 'security services' but declined to say if that might include special forces such as the SAS, according to the Daily Telegraph. 
US Secretary of State John Kerry over the weekend also promised help.

'The kidnapping of hundreds of children by Boko Haram is an unconscionable crime and we will do everything possible to support the Nigerian government to return these young women to their homes and to hold the perpetrators to justice,' he said.

The brazenness and sheer brutality of the school attack has shocked Nigerians, who had been growing accustomed to hearing about atrocities in an increasingly bloody five-year-old Islamist insurgency in the north. 
Boko Haram are now seen as the main security threat to Africa's leading energy producer and is growing bolder and extending its reach.

In the latest video, the images are blurry at times, but zoom in to Shekau, who speaks in the local Hausa language and Arabic as well as English.

Six armed men stand beside him with their faces covered. 
For the first 14 minutes, he takes a swipe at democracy, Western education, efforts for Muslims and Christians to live in peace and rails against non-believers in Islam. 
'I abducted a girl at a Western education school and you are disturbed. I said Western education should end.

'Western education should end. Girls, you should go and get married,' he said.

'I will repeat this: Western education should fold up. I abducted your girls.' 
'I will sell them in the market, by Allah,' Shekau said, claiming his group was holding the girls as 'slaves'. 
'I will marry off a woman at the age of 12. I will marry off a girl at the age of nine,' he said elsewhere in the video.
I refer to these barbarians as "terrorists" above because if you know anything about Islam's history, you will very quickly realise that these creatures are not terrorists by the standards of their own "religion". Islam has a long, sordid, and nasty history of selling captives into slavery- starting, of course, with their own "prophet":
"The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) [Didact: I think not] sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Qur'an 4:24) 'And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.'"
The quote above explains the background for Surah 4, verse 24, which is just one of numerous verses in the Koran about the right of Muslims to capture, own, trade, and even breed slaves. It is well known from the compiled biographies and sayings of their "prophet" that Mohammed himself owned, traded, and routinely had sex with female slaves.

That isn't even the worst of it. You might find yourself asking why these subhumans would think that a "woman" can be sold off at the age of 12, and a girl can be sold off at the age of 9. The answer is simple: Mohammed married his sixth and favourite wife, Aisha, when she was 9. That is also the age at which he consummated their, uh, "marriage". (Yeah. Their "prophet" was a paedophile, on top of being a mass murderer, a slave trader, a charlatan, a false prophet, and a quite ruthless warlord. Fun guy, eh?)

This is the reality of Islam that well-meaning Muslims, Islamist apologists, and their useful idiot allies in the West continually refuse to face. It is NOT a religion of peace in any way, shape, or form. It is a religion that brutalises the weak, that indulges in every form of barbarity that both Judaism and Christianity condemn, and that seeks total domination over all human life. Do not ever let yourself be fooled by the nature of this particular beast.

As for what we should all do about these kidnappings- well, I can only agree with Vox's take on the subject:
It is apparent that the cunning plan of Western liberals to destroy the Dar al-Islam by pushing secularized Western education on Islamic women has been comprehended by the strategists of the global Caliphate. The jihadists are responding in two ways, by infiltrating and taking over educational facilities in the West and by destroying Western educational facilities in the South and East. The very name of the Nigerian group illustrates that they grasp the Western tactic. 
Now liberals like Kristof are aghast at the fact that the very young women they intentionally turned into cultural weapons on behalf of their secular ideals are being targeted for enslavement and destruction. But what else did they expect? It would appear they were misled by the widespread failure of the Christians of the West to respond to the successful capture of their daughters by the secular establishment into thinking that the Muslims of the South and East would be similarly complacent. 
If Western secularists actually gave a damn about women, (and the tens of millions of aborted young girls around the world strongly suggests they don't), then they should have thought twice before weaponizing young women and turning them into legitimate targets in the violent clash of rival cultures.
There is not the slightest point in the West getting involved here. There is no victory to be found. If the West takes military action over something that is patently a complete non-issue to virtually every single resident of Western Europe and North America, it will (rightly) be seen as an act of imperialist aggression by the very same benighted unfortunates that the West is supposedly trying to help. Such action will simply play right into the hands of those who claim that dar al-Islam is waging a just and righteous war against dar al-Harb. The jihadists have proven here that they fully understand what kind of weapon the West is planning to use against them, and they have moved to neutralise it. They are correct to do so, and Western strategists would show themselves to be class acts in stupidity if they persist in following a strategy that has been so thoroughly compromised.

The correct course of action here is quite simply to let these barbarians in Africa fight amongst themselves. The West should stay out of it entirely. The way to win this war is not through secular education of Nigeria's (and the rest of Africa's) youth. I have already outlined the way to win this war. Perhaps it is time for the West's leaders to take a hint and start listening to those who know how to fight this kind of war.
