Tunisian women who have travelled to Syria to offer themselves to Islamist fighters are returning

Tunisian women who travelled to Syria to offer themselves to Islamist opposition fighters in sexual jihad are returning pregnant, a government minister has claimed

Tunisian women who travelled to Syria to offer themselves to Islamist opposition fighters in sexual jihad are returning pregnant, a government minister has claimed

home pregnant with rebels' children, it has been revealed.

A Tunisian government minister told members of parliament this week the women, who are waging 'sexual jihad', are 'having sexual relations with 20,30,100' men before returning to Tunisia pregnant. 

Interior Minister Lotfi ben Jeddou made the revelations at the National Constituent Assembly on Thursday, though didn't elaborate on the number of women who have returned in this condition. 

'After the sexual liaisons they have there in the name of 'jihad al-nikah' -- (sexual holy war, in Arabic) -- they come home pregnant,' he said. 

Jihad al-nikah, permitting extramarital sexual relations with multiple partners, is considered by some hardline Sunni Muslim Salafists as a legitimate form of holy war. 

The minister also did not say how many Tunisian women were thought to have gone to Syria for such a purpose, although media reports have said hundreds have done so, France 24 revealed. 

However, Ben Jeddou also said that since he assumed office in March, 'six thousand of our young people have been prevented from going' to the country. 

He has said in the past that border controls have been boosted to intercept young Tunisians seeking to travel to Syria.

Earlier this year a group of Tunisian girls travelled to rebel-held Northern Syria to offer themselves to opposition fighters. 

Their action came after growing in concern in Tunisia about religious orders or 'fatwas' that circulated the internet calling on Muslim women to perform jihad through sex.

A Tunisian minister of religious affairs appealed to girls at the time not to be influenced by Islamic preachers outside of Tunisia who made a number of 'sexual fatwas'.

Noureddine al-Khadimi rejected 'sexual jihad' fatwas, urging Tunisian people and state institutions to not respond to them.

Tunisian newspapers reported that a young Tunisian man divorced his wife, and that they both headed to Syria almost a month ago to 'allow her to engage in sexual jihad with the mujahideen' there.

This report followed earlier ones of a video widely circulated on the internet and social websites in Tunisia shows the parents of a veiled girl called Rahmah, 17.

They said Rahmahat disappeared from home one morning and they 'later learned that she had headed to Syria to carry out sexual jihad.' 

The young girl has since returned to her family, who have kept her out of sight, and said that their daughter is not a religious fanatic 'but was influenced by her fellow students who are known for their affiliation with the jihadist Salafist.'

Her parents said these fellow students may have brainwashed her and convinced her to travel to Syria 'to support the mujahideen there.'

News websites and social networks in Tunisia circulated a fatwa attributed to Sheikh Mohamed al-Arifi  in which he called upon 'Muslim women' to perform jihad through sex.

However, sources close to the sheikh denied that he had issued the fatwa, stressing that anyone who circulates or believes it is insane.

Saudi Arabia was widely considered to be financially backing the Syrian rebels fighting in Northern Syria and whose hardcore ‘Salafist’ strand of Islam influences a great number of the young fighters – many of whom are ‘jihadists’ and come from all around the world, including the UK.

Reports in Tunisia stressed though that the fatwa had gained much attention on pro-Syrian regime websites, the goal of which may be to tarnish the image of the Islamic fighters by stressing a key point of Syrian leader Bashar Al Assad that fundamentalists, supported by Salafist groups in Saudi Arabia, are amongst the Syrian rebels.

Al-Hadi Yahmad, a researcher on the affairs of Islamic groups, told Al-Hayat: 'The issue of sexual jihad was initially attributed to a Saudi sheikh who denied it, and this fatwa is abnormal and not endorsed by religious scholars.'

He added that this fatwa — had it indeed been issued — may involve Syrian girls living in Syria, who can 'support the mujahideen by marrying them for a few hours.'

Under Islamic law, a man can marry and consummate a marriage with his bride, before divorcing her the next day without any resistance from the bride or her family simply by following religious etiquette.

Noor Eddin al-Khadimi, said that Tunisians should not abide by the fatwa.

Her calls were duplicated by the Tunisian opposition also.

Salma al-Raqiq, a Tunisian opposition figure, said that the 'jihad marriages' were a disgrace for the Tunisians.

She also called on the authorities to start dealing with the increasing phenomenon of Tunisian jihadis heading to Syria to join radical Islamist groups.

Al-Raqiq told the UPI press agency that the phenomenon was a dangerous one. She said that young girls, including minors, have been sent to Syria to 'marry' jihadis for a few hours.

As Salaamu Alaikum. I am writing to say that I am more than a little upset by the fatwas being made by Gulf sheikhs calling on Muslim women to travel to Syria to provide sex for the so called rebels. 

The government of Tunisia is reporting that a large number of young Tunisian women have responded to the call and are returning to Tunisia unmarried and pregnant after having sexual intercourse with as many as 100 men. This is an abomination before God and should have every Muslim outraged and ready to respond to this crime against Muslim women and the honor of this ummah. 
The National Association of Muslim American will hold a press conference where we will condemn these fatwas and the sheikhs issuing such fatwas. We will also call upon the UN to designate this practice human trafficking and sex slavery. What is not being said is that many of these so called militants are European Jews and IDF acting as Arabs on the battlefield. Others azre merely mercenaries with no religion or nationality. 
I am calling on every US Muslim organization to condemn this in the strongest terms and to begin campaigns to educate Muslim women as to the evil of this practice and to demand that any country facilitating this behavior be charged with sex slavery and human trafficking in women and girls. 
We are also talking to international lawyers about ways to bring charges against the Sheikhs making these fatwas and the countries that harbor and facilitate them. 
Wa Salaamu Alaikum,
Anisa Abd el Fattah

As Salaamu Alaikum. Thank you Ajir and may Allah reward you. Insha Allah we will video the press conference and post to youtube so Muslim women everywhere can access it, insha Allah. We will end the exploitation and victimization of Muslim women one way or another. As I mentioned before, many or most of these men are not even Muslim they are Jewish and because their women are infertile they want to procreate with clean women. All of this, including the woman in Kuwait who was recruiting via youtube, created a plan to get these Jewish men with Muslim women. Years from now we will read about a Jewish plan to find their children in Tunisia through DNA tests. 

In my opinion, the saddest and most shameful aspect of all of this is that of the million of scholars ans Imams in the world, no one felt Muslim women of enough value that they would mount a campaign to correct these fake sheikhs and to undermine their plot before any of this happened. We want the woman in Kuwait and the various so called shiekhs who cooked this plot to go to prison and that is what we are working towards, insha Allah. We will work with the UN and the interpol to see that there is an investigation and a charge for criminal conduct under laws prohibiting sex trafficking. Even if these were Muslim and Arab men exploiting these sisters, it was wrong and sinful and we will see that FSA and Al Nusra are also held to account for this crime against Muslim womanhood and humanity and our ummat. 
. We will present our proposed plan fir how to proceed at the press conference, insha Allah.
