Gaddafi's Forces Using Rape as a Weapon of War

LIBYA--Children as young as eight are being raped in front of their families by Gaddafi's forces in Libya, according to a leading charity.

Aid workers described horrific stories of widespread sexual abuse, including one incident in which a group of girls was abducted and held hostage for four days.

When they were finally released, they were too traumatised to speak.

Other children have described being forced to watch as their fathers were murdered and their mothers raped.

They told Save The Children that they themselves were then brually beaten before being released. (Read more.)

Okay ... what does this have to do with Islam?

Rape is Islam.

The connection with Islam is that these atrocities may be the spiritual fruit of Islam. It's possible Gaddafi and his troops have not been influenced by Islam's approval of the rape of captives and sex with young children, but doesn't it seem more likely that the reason why these troops do not have an aversion to such horrifying practices is because they are in keeping with the practice of their prophet?

In Jesus' Name I pray for healing and comfort for these precious, wounded little ones.

Not sure why this is still so difficult. Muslims constantly tell us that Islam is the solution to our problems. Yet we look at the Muslim world, and they have far greater problems than we have. So we have no reason to think that Islam is the solution to our problems. (This is apart from things like: Islam's low opinion of women, the Qur'an allowing Muslim men to rape their female captives, etc.)

Haven't we been over this before?

Oh, okay.

But I think you should make that clear in your posts because a Muslim could come and be all like, "Whaaaa?? He's distorting Islam!!" and then not visit the site anymore.

Muslims say: Islam is perfection.
In Islam, I see only the perfection of force, brutality, suffering, war, humiliation, rape, and cultural genocide.
At all of those things, Islam is perfect.
