Sometimes we think there is nothing else that can shock us when it comes to radical Islam.
Then something else comes along that shakes the foundations again and reminds us of just how depraved the enemy we face really is.
In a clip translated by MEMRI, an Islamic professor named Suad Saleh at Al-Azhar claims that the rape of female prisoners to “humiliate” them is an acceptable act.
The transcript reads: “The female prisoners of wars are ‘those whom you own.’ In order to humiliate them, they become the property of the army commander, or of a Muslim, and he can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives.”

“The professor is from Al-Azhar, which is as mainstream establishment as Islam gets in Egypt,” reports Front Page Mag.
We’re not talking some out there fringe lunatic here, well to you and me we’re talking about an out there fringe lunatic. But as far as Islamic institutions go, this is a middle of the road type of professor.
While wars are “hell” as the saying goes, this is beyond egregious. This is, however, the type of mentality we are facing in this particular enemy.
While the media here wrings their hands over poor treatment of prisoners in Gitmo, including the serving of non-religious-appropriate meals, our enemy has people who profess and endorse atrocities like this in an effort to not only defeat, but humiliate their enemies.
This is the type of war we’re going to be faced with, waged by an enemy who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of complete victory, and annihilation of “non-believers”.
