There’s a new report based on interviews with women who volunteered to be ISIS wives but fled when they learned the reality. These women claim they somehow didn’t know about all the genocide (or, I assume, the televised beheadings and burning people alive, the destruction of antiquities, the rape of girls as young as nine, the use of children as suicide bombers, or any of the other things ISIS is known for). They thought ISIS was composed of “strong, devout men,” “pure Muslims” who wanted to “jihad for the sake of Allah.” Instead, they turned out to be “disgusting” and only wanted sex. They would pay up to $10,000 for virgin sex slaves bought over phone apps, then anger their wives by showering their sex slaves with expensive make-up and accessories.
It’s nice that these women finally recognized the error of their ways, and I’m very glad they were able to escape alive. But I would hope that any other women who might want to follow in their footsteps would read their stories first (yes, there’s more at the link.) Or at the very least, Google “ISIS” before packing your bags.
