Leader of Islamic State used American hostage as sexual slave - The Washington Post



The leader of the Islamic State personally kept a 26-year-old American woman as a hostage and raped her repeatedly, according to U.S. officials and her family.

The family of Kayla Mueller said in an interview Friday that the FBI had informed them that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the emir of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, had sexually abused their daughter, a humanitarian worker.

Mueller’s parents said the FBI first spoke to the family about the sexual assault in late June and provided more details two weeks ago. The bureau pieced together what happened to the American from interviews with other hostages and the captured wife of a senior Islamic State figure.

The FBI also told the Muellers that their daughter had been tortured.

“June was hard for me,” said Marsha Mueller, Kayla’s mother. “I was really upset with what I heard.”

The disclosure that Mueller was raped by Baghdadi adds to the grim evidence that the exploitation and abuse of women has been sanctioned at the highest levels of the Islamic State. The sexual enslavement of even teenage girls is seen as religiously endorsed by the group and regarded as a recruiting tool.

News of Baghdadi’s abuse of Mueller, who was from Prescott, Ariz., was first reported Friday by the Independent, a London newspaper.

“As painful as this is for our family, we just feel like the world needs to know the truth,” said Carl Mueller, Kayla’s father. The Muellers noted that Friday would have been their daughter’s 27th birthday.

The Islamic State claimed that Mueller was killed earlier this year after a Jordanian fighter plane dropped a bomb on the building where she was being held. The U.S. government confirmed the death but not the cause.

Mueller’s family had previously released a letter their daughter had written in which she talked about the conditions of her captivity. “Please know I am in a safe location, completely unharmed + healthy (put on weight in fact); I have been treated w/the utmost respect + kindness,” she wrote in the letter, which the family received in the spring of 2014.


Kayla’s mother said she had thought her daughter had been treated reasonably until she learned about the conditions of her captivity during a June meeting with FBI officials in Washington. The FBI said they learned about Mueller’s mistreatment from the wife of a senior Islamic State operative captured earlier this year, as well as young female members of the Yazidi religious sect who had spent two months in captivity with Mueller before at least one of them escaped last fall.

U.S. officials had previously said that Mueller was abused by her captors, but it was not known until now that she was kept as a sex slave of the leader of the Islamic State.

Baghdadi is a former Iraqi insurgent who was detained by U.S. forces early in the Iraq war. He was part of an al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq that was thought to have been largely destroyed before the civil war in Syria allowed it to regenerate.

Though little is known about his background, Baghdadi is regarded as an experienced fighter and a capable leader. His most prominent public appearance came last year when he surfaced at a mosque in Mosul to declare himself the leader of a restored caliphate.

Mueller was abducted in August 2013 after leaving a hospital in the Syrian city of Aleppo. Three months after she died, the compound where she had been held was targeted in a raid by U.S. Special Operations forces.

The operation was aimed at capturing Abu Sayyaf, the nom de guerre of a high-ranking Tunisian member of the Islamic State, who was thought to be in charge of oil smuggling and other illicit enterprises that have funded the terrorist group.

Sayyaf was killed in what U.S. officials described as intense “close quarters combat.” But his wife, identified only as Umm Sayyaf, survived and was eventually brought back to Iraq aboard a bullet-riddled U.S. aircraft. She was then questioned by U.S. interrogators for months, providing information about Mueller as well as the Islamic State’s leadership, before recently being turned over to Iraqi custody.

Systematic abuse
Mueller’s mistreatment is the latest evidence of the Islamic State’s systematic abuse of women on a significant scale.

A report released in April by Human Rights Watch accused the Islamic State of war crimes for its brutal treatment of female Yazidis — many of them teenagers — who were captured in Iraq last August, taken to Syria and forced into sexual slavery by the Islamic State.

After surging into the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar last year, Islamic State fighters captured as many as 1,000 Yazidi women, many of whom were given a bleak choice of “marriage” to a fighter or imprisonment and potential death.

The Human Rights Watch report focused on 20 women who escaped the group and provided detailed accounts of their treatment.

One described attempting to kill herself by going into a bathroom, turning on water and grasping a wire “to electrocute myself but there was no electricity.”

After being discovered, she said she was badly beaten, handcuffed to a sink, stripped of her clothes and washed. “They took me out of the bathroom, brought in [a friend] and raped her in the room in front of me,” said the woman, who is referred to only as Leila. Later she, too, was raped.

Another victim, who was only 12 years old, said that after being abducted in Sinjar, the women in her family were separated from the men and sent to a house in Mosul. Islamic State fighters “would come and select us,” she said. One of the captors beat her, she said, and then “spent three days having sex with me.”

A recent issue of the English-language magazine published by the Islamic State described the taking of sex slaves as religiously justified. The article — titled “Slave girls or prostitutes?” — endorsed the practice, saying sex slaves are “lawful for the one who ends up possessing them even without pronouncement of divorce by their [non-Muslim] husbands.”

The article went on to cite accounts that the prophet Muhammad “took four slave-girls as concubines,” a purported religious basis for the practice.

Yeah their "prophet" raped little girls all the time, some much younger than 12! With a foundation like that, what could possibly be wrong with this entire belief system? I feel so sorry for these kids (and adult women), when I read this stuff! Savagery under the banner of religion!

I've noticed a lot of pedophiles use some made up religious cult as a guise for raping children. You know-- the kind where they say "God wants me to marry your 8 year old daughter." No religion seems to be immune to it, either. Christian, Catholic, Mormon, Muslim... anything other than Buddhists, maybe.

Rebels confirmed months ago that she died in an air strike. Not sure what purpose of this claim is, my guess is they got intelligence on his whereabouts and will soon strike.

Oh that's right, didn't they claim that she was killed during the Jordanian airstrike? Hmm, sounds a little too convenient to me.

Those religious figures have split personality at times. It is getting common. I had already related in another thread the story of a pastor who is a womanizer so he killed his wife. Fortunately there was clear evidence so he is now in jail. With the ISIS, it is a given that they will do barbaric things like raping and sodomizing. So what's new with those fighting for their religion? Nothing's new, their human side is showing.

They actually rape girls as young as 9 years old. They drug them up first so they won't put up much of a fight and they rape them repeatedly for weeks or even months.

Every time ISIS takes over a new territory. They take the women hostage. In medical times this was called the spoils of war. They take everything that the conquered enemy had. Land, title, and yes their women. This is something that the West is not to keen on investigating or show of news networks. It is a horrific scene when these guys come rolling into town. Frontline has a special on the ISIS captives and it is gripping and will get you emotional. As the story is told by former captives and their families.

I feel bad for the girl in the OP. But I am amazed as to why only that girl is reported on as being a raped victim. Watch the following video and be informed.

Christians? What Christians have married 8 year olds, or even tried to? And last I heard, Catholics consider themselves part of the Christian community. How many of them have married , or wanted to marry 8 year olds?

It is so terrible. God Rest her Soul. I mean I just wish these ISIS people would face an international tribunal and be held to account for their crimes. I think the entire thing is gruesome and so unfair. I mean all she wanted to do was help people, it is so frustrating and horrible. I really think that people that willing go to the Middle East though should really think twice. I mean how many of these stories do we have to hear?

It just go to show you the mentality behind this group. If you are not an ISIS member, then that means you are nothing. So that means we can do whatever we want to you. Death, rape, you name it, we can do it because you are beneath us. That is the tone that I get when I hear and see stories like these that come out of the region.

"some made up religious cult as a guise for raping children."

the ENTIRE point of my statement is that people have pretended to be ALL of these religions, at one point or another. And, yes, pedophiles have started christian cults, CULTS, to trick brainwashed CULT members to hand over their children. I'm trying here, but it looks like if you actually read what I wrote instead of jumping at the chance to argue, you would have gotten the point of what I said.

The prophet (PBUH) didn't rape anybody, he married Aisha when she was at least 15 years old, and that was the norm all over the world at the time! There were Muslim leaders of entire armies who were only 17 and 18 years old at the time. Islam prohibits rape and whoever does it gets the capital punishment.

For the love of god guys, enough with sticking ISIL crimes with Islam and Muslims. I don't know what we should do to convince the world that these guys are enemies of Islam and Muslims, and Muslims themselves have always been their main victims.

I used 8 years old in my post as an example. One of the mormon cults in Arizona handed over their 8 yr olds. Jim Jones, the Christian cult guy liked them really young, too. I believe he went for like 10 or 11 year olds.

Get a really famous actor to make a commercial and do a few interviews about Islam. You know, kind of like Tom Cruise and Scientology.

Well, this is sick.

Everything about Islam is over there on the internet. Anybody can easily look up for almost anything before making ignorant claims.
