Palestinian Official Says Non-Muslim Women Can Serve as Sex Slaves
Video footage from Hamas television, shared by Memri TV on Monday, featured a senior female Palestinian official who claimed that according to their belief, Allah permits Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women as a means of humiliation. She further asserted that in the event of a conflict with Israel, Palestinian men would be entitled to take Israeli women as sex slaves.
While quoting the Qur’an, the Palestinian woman alleged that the Holy Book permitted Muslim men to take non-Muslim women for sexual use even if they have wives. On the other hand, married women who become sex slaves, their marriages are immediately annulled.
Another Female Muslim Official Supports Sex Slavery
The woman seen in the video footage is not the first female Muslim leader to advocate for sex slavery and raping of non-Muslim women. In 2016, Salwa al-Mutairi, a female politician in Kuwait, said these practices were in line with Islamic law. She argued that non-Muslims immediately qualify to become sex slaves after getting captured in a war.
Al-Mutairi said the Islamic law states several differences between free women and sex slaves. For instance, while a free woman must wear clothes that cover their entire body, a sex slave, on the other hand, can be half-naked, from her head to waist. Moreover, free women need marriage contracts to have sex with Muslim men, while sex slaves do not, as they are bought.
Hamas Fighter Calls Kidnapped Israeli Women “Sabaya”

In the footage, the terrorist revealed the true motive behind the terror group’s decision to capture Israeli women. He said they wanted to rape them.
