Truly incredible and heart warming news has come out of the Syrian conflict as of late. With massive amounts of ISIS fighters either running, dying, or turning themselves in, it seems that their barbarism in the region will soon come to an end. As towns and villages are freed, videos are being shown about the women being freed by their captors and stripping off their head wear and burkas in sign of defiance.
The news continues to pour in that the horrendous and world-threatening power of ISIS is finally being defeated in massive numbers. Syrian, Russian, Kurdish, Iraqi, and United States forces are working together to encircle and defeat the terrorist organization at their heart in Syria and Northern Iraq. Now that they are being driven from occupied territory, joyous moments are being shared with prisoners who were captured and likely prostituted by the Islamic State.
The joy and thanks can be heard from the woman in the video who is extremely thankful to the fighters who worked to free them. The women appears to either kiss the ground that her saviors walked on or quickly found the direction of Mecca to thank Allah for her release at the hands of those who were supposedly carrying out the will of Allah. Either way it is clear that the woman is happy to be free of both ISIS and her symbol of oppression, the burka.
Islam is a strict and brutal religion that offers both loose and strict interpretations of their holy book, the Qu’ran. Women are often subjected to harsh and brutal conditions where men are their superiors and they are at the mercy of either their fathers or husbands. The strictest interpretation calls for women to be covered so that they are not tempting to others who will lust and commit sexual abuse against them. It is also a way to control a person or group so that their daily life is harder or more brutal.
This newly freed woman is showing the world the burka is not a symbol of women’s empowerment but the exact opposite. It is used to break women down and make them feel as though it would be their fault if they were raped by someone who does not have to control themselves. It is a symbol of oppression used to both treat women inhumanely as well as protect lustful Muslim men from facing their actions as their own fault.
As the days of ISIS having a central hub in the Middle East and North African region are coming to an end, it seems clear the the locals of the region can not wait to be rid of them. Their extreme rhetoric and practices have left many in the world scarred from their encounters with them and frustrated with the lack of coordinated response to their actions. Their systematic approach to both slaughtering Christians and enforcement of strict Islamic law should make many in the West uneasy about their existence and network abroad.
ISIS has made it clear that they are a global power to be reckoned with. They have attacked cities in many major Western powers and their massacres in Europe seemed like only the beginning. Although many in the West fled towards ISIS in the hopes of carrying out a jihad but many in ISIS surely went to the West to both radicalized others and carry out the jihad themselves. It is no secret that ISIS promises sex slaves to their fighters as well operate prostitution rings to pay for their cause.
When one understands that ISIS uses sex slaves to finance themselves, one can understand why so many in the West are subjected to inhumane conditions when they are trafficked against their will. The massive global human trafficking industry that not only carries out a version of jihad, as infidel women can be treated by Muslim however they choose, they also have the potential to finance terrorist organizations or cells.
As heartbreaking as it may be, ISIS will be around for a long time thanks to their international connections with human trafficking as well as terrorist sympathizers will make them nearly possible to destroy entirely.
However, to see this women rip off her symbol of oppression in open defiance to both misogyny and Islam, it warms the heart. This woman was saved thanks to the courage of the fighters working tirelessly to restore some semblance of order back to the shattered region.
