Now it has been released that Kayla Mueller, the 26-year-old American aid worker captured by ISIS and killed in February, was repeatedly raped by ISIS top leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and another senior IS member. This is a barbaric specialty of ISIS–they have a highly organized sex trade industry, even keeping an inventory of sex slaves.
The New York Times reports about the unbelievable horrors and trauma experienced by women and girls as young as 12 as they are repeatedly raped and brutalized by ISIS. The report reveals that the men prayed before and after raping them, saying that the Quran gives them the right to do this and that it pleases their god. I’ll say it again—the god of Islam is not the one true God of the Bible. We need to pray for Christians, Yazidis, moderate Muslims, and all those across the Middle East who are persecuted and suffering at the hands of ISIS.
