ISIS: A Caliphate of Torture and Rape

Laila Khoudeidaby Laila Khoudeida

Originally from Sinjar, Iraq, Laila Khoudeida is a social worker and mental health specialist, currently serving on the board of Yazda, an organization she helped found in 2014 that responds to the needs of Yazidi victims of IS ethnic cleansing.


I recorded this Sinjar survivor account in my notebook as it was related to me by “FA,” a Yazidi woman who managed to escape ISIS captivity late last year. She wanted to share her story with the world but chose not to share her name.

Originally from a town called Tel Ezer in the Sinjar region, FA is a 23-year-old Yazidi woman from a very large family. Her neighborhood was home to thirteen other families who were closely related to her—grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends. On Aug. 3, 2014, when FA heard the news about ISIS entering nearby Yazidi towns, she did not realize how quickly she would be forced to become the slave of one ISIS militant after another. After learning the frightening news, she and her family members gathered themselves so that they could head for the mountains.

But they were too late. The ISIS militia had already beheaded countless Yazidi men and destroyed many nearby towns. She became very scared and held tightly to her mother and sisters as the gunshots continued. When ISIS reached her house, she was pulled by the hair with a gun pointed at her head as she along with her family were herded along to join other Yazidis who were gathered into groups.  There, she witnessed her father and four uncles collapse to the ground as each was shot in the head. She said:

“I wanted to die; I wanted to be the next one to be shot in the head, because I did not want to see any more of what was to come.”

She would live to witness much more cruelty.

Another 200 men were shot and the survivors, including her, were taken to Seba Shekh Kheder, a town located south of Sinjar. There, they separated women and put them in different groups according to their age and beauty. This was the last time she would see her mother. The children, including infants, were forcibly taken from their mothers to be raised by ISIS, where they are now being taught the Caliphate’s religion so they can grow up to become future jihadis.

FA said that while in Seba Shekh Kheder:

“I wanted to know where my mother was taken and if I would ever see her again. I kept looking around but I did not see anyone her age, there were only women close to my age and younger, including 9-year-olds.”

They were ordered to walk single file to Baaj. She said, “At this point, I did not understand where they were taking us, but I noticed that we were moving farther away from my town.”  After arriving in Baaj, she noticed the ISIS militants changing their minds; it seemed they did not feel safe having all of the captives there. She said:

“I was exhausted and could not cry because I felt numb; I felt like this was a nightmare that I would soon wake up from.”

They sat on the ground where the little girls clung to the older ones and one of them whispered to FA, “I am thirsty.” FA said, “That’s when my heart ached and I started crying.” They could not ask for water because the last one to do so, a 70-year-old woman, was struck across the face with a weapon.

FA said that around 12 pm they were ordered to start walking again, towards Mosul.

“We walked from 12 pm to 3 am and throughout our journey we walked over dead bodies and past destroyed homes. We would see vehicles pass by with black flags hanging out and men with long beards saying “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!” as they passed us (meaning “god is the greatest”).”

The ISIS men never addressed each other by their first names, intent on keeping the captives from learning their true identities. Once moved to Mosul, they remained there for 11 days, and during this period, she was forced to “marry” one of the men.

“I resisted and was beat in the stomach and head until I became unconscious. When I woke up, I watched other women, including my sisters, go through the same experience.”

Her face was so bruised up that she no longer drew the men’s attention, as they sought out good-looking women.

“I watched my sister bang her head on the wall as one of the militants dragged her to his car.”

FA later learned that her sister was sold off to someone in Syria and was taken to live with his family. The family didn’t believe that a Yazidi woman should live in a Muslim household, so they took her to the local shari’a court (perhaps to have her officially convert). The people saw her as an infidel who should be punished. That was the last she knew of her sister.

FA was again grouped with about one hundred other women and they were ordered to walk back to Baaj.  This time they stayed in Baaj for 8 days, at which point she was sold for about 10 dollars to someone in Tel Banat.

“He did to me what he desired, then sold me to someone in Tel Qasab after two days.”

In Tel Qasab, FA was tortured badly, raped multiple times a day, and beaten after each instance of rape. She was made to cook for the militant and clean his house, but since she did not look good enough for him after staying with him for two days, he brought her back to where the other women were being held.

FA added that they were very exhausted and many of the girls did not care whether they lived or died because they saw how they were being used as sex objects and at any point could be killed, if they were to resist the militants’ sexual demands.

“At three in the morning I felt a splash of cold water hit me in the face; I felt the pain of the wounds on my cheeks and head and could barely open my eyes.”

When she woke up, she saw that some women were being ordered to stand up in a line and take their scarves off.

“I felt a wire hit me hard in the back and I slowly stood up.

I did not know where my scarf had fallen off, but they were looking for women who satisfied their taste in looks.”

FA’s brother’s wife and cousin were two of many who met this desire and were taken. They were screaming and trying to find a way to escape, but they could not. Her brother’s wife still had her son with her and he looked very ill—her nephew looked dead.

“My sister wanted to come and give me a hug because she knew that that would be the last time we would see each other. But she was dragged to the vehicle.”

Her brother’s wife is still held in Mosul today, but she doesn’t know much about her sister, or whether her nephew is still alive.

The next day in the evening two women hung themselves from the ceiling fan in the building; one of them was the wife of her neighbor, a very young and beautiful woman. She had told FA that she would kill herself before they touched her, and she did so.

“I wanted to do the same, but I was too weak, and I felt the little girls needed someone to be with them. So I resisted every time they would come to sell me, and I managed to stay with the girls. Because they had found out that I could cook, one of them, their leader, bought me for a thousand dollars from the previous person who still claimed that I was his wife.

The leader ordered me to cook and bake for them and the Yazidis who had been forced to convert.

I cleaned the girls so they could be sold for better prices, and I would tell them…. ‘just do what they tell you until we find a way out of here.’

One of the girls did not follow orders when she was called to meet the man who had come to choose a girl (sabya) to be his wife,  so to punish us, they mixed gas with water and forced us to wash ourselves with it.”

Continuing her tragedy, FA said that one day a 9-year-old girl was called to go into the leader’s room. The girl was so terrified, she started vomiting.

“So I fixed the 9-year-old child’s hair, and she was sent to the leader’s room. Soon after she was in there, I heard the loudest scream a nine-year-old can make.”

After about half hour, she came back out. He had raped her. Waiting outside was another man to whom she was sold before he returned to Syria.

She would not be the last. The leader would keep them until he had raped them, then they would be sold. “There were so many of us that it was very easy for him to get another girl to rape.”

FA said that one by one all the little girls that she had taken care of had been sold except for three. One of these was a 13-year-old and the other two had already been sold to ISIS fighters and were therefore considered “married” and were waiting for the ISIS men to come back from a mission in Mosul. They did not have the courage to try to run away.

“One day, the guard who was watching over us came to the kitchen and started touching me in different areas, but I pushed him each time… He pulled out a piece of paper, it was a marriage certificate.”

This man had made FA his wife in the shari’a court without informing her; he told her that he would send her off to Saudi Arabia if she didn’t comply.

“I was very scared, and the next day, I went to the leader and told him about the situation with the guard.”

FA by this time had become a prized commodity because she cooked and baked for all of them, so the leader put the ISIS guard in jail for one day before he was released. She said this man wanted to kill her, but he couldn’t because he was afraid of the leader.

The next day, the guard told his friend that he wanted him to take her in a vehicle and send her off to Saudi Arabia and kill her there. When FA heard this, she knew she had to find a way to escape.

That night, airstrikes targeting one of the ISIS bases prompted the militant leader to abruptly get in his vehicle and drive off.

“I looked to see if the guard was around, and when I didn’t see him, I told the girls that this was our chance to run away. The two who had been sold were too scared to come because the last time one of us tried to run, she was brought back, and her legs were cut off.”

The two girls did not want to go through the same experience, but FA was determined to run that night because she did not want to end up in Saudi Arabia.

The 13-year-old girl agreed to go with FA, and they started heading toward the mountain. On the run for three days without food or water, they hid behind buildings and bushes during the day and moved at night. By the time they came close to the road near the mountain, the 13-year-old girl couldn’t walk, so FA began to carry her. Because they were so dehydrated, she picked up two small rocks and gave one to the girl to place in her mouth to help with the thirst, and placed the other in her own mouth.

Once they had passed the danger zone and drawn close to the mountain, Yazidi fighters spotted them and ran to them with water. Qasim Shesho, a Yazidi leader, told his men to drive them to Kurdistan.

This woman is one of thousands of Yazidi women who have been enslaved since summer of last year. She now lives in a tent in a refugee camp that houses many other Yazidis with similar stories.

“If a man wants his wife to inherit more he can give her as much as he wants through a will, even he can give her all his money”

If a will is allowed, then everything else is secondary/manageable. But my understanding is that wills are not allowed in most interpretations of sharia law. Am I wrong?

Under any law, so long as a person is able to decide, after his and her death, how his wealth would be distributed among his survivorship, then any “default” distribution would be acceptable in a society in my opinion.

And btw, thank you for engaging positively.

On the other topic, decent people could discuss and disagree on the right of gays to be legally married – I think it is a healthy debate/discussion. But “being gay” is a natural phenomenon proven today by science. One does not “choose” to be gay – a person’s sexual tendencies are determined by his/her hormones. Asking a gay man to “suppress” his sexual feelings towards men is like asking you to stop liking women. And given that we know more today about “being gay”, we should have modern laws that treat gays differently than they were treated centuries ago – at the very least complete equality if not complete marriage rights if a society is still not too comfortable with that yet.

“No Muslem should force other Non Muslims to follow Shariaa, not in Islamic countries , and not I other countries”

That is nice, but what about the other Muslims? For example, I was born Muslim in Syria. In future Syria, will I be subject to a law, written under Sharia, which forces me to accept rules, which in my opinion, do not match modern times? Would I be forced to stop drinking alcohol or face lashes, to give my brother inheritence money, to accept the fact that my daughter’s husband can legally marry another wife, and to hide the fact that my son is gay so he can avoid being stoned to death? And if I decide I do not want to be muslim anymore, I would be marched to my death?

I suspect that you would want to answer “no” to all of the above. In that case, why do we still say the word “sharia”? Why not just build a modern law that unambiguously sets norms that are in line with modern times?

Here we go again , misunderstand Islam completely, you say the will is not always applicable, that is not true, all the rules of inheritance in Islam ,all the versus about inheritance say a clear sentence , AFTER THE WILL IS APPLIED, wills are always in Islam come first, the rules of Islam are void if there is a will, the man or woman who leave wealth are the only one who determine how his or her wealth are to be distributed after their death, it is not the government who decides that, the greatness about inheritance rules in Islam is the provision of the will, which is always allowed ,must be respected before the rules set forward by inheritance , however if a man or a woman did not write a will then you as Moslems only have accepted what Quraan says
In fact inUSA the rules of the will was taken recently , centuries ago there was no rule of wills
So if you do not want your brother to inherit your money simply write a will

As for your other comment
You are wrong again, would you be kind enough to show me where in Quraan it says if you drink alcohol you must be punished by lashes, or would you tell me where in Quraan it is written that you change your religion then you will be killed? Quraan says NO COERSION IN RELIGIONS
Again gay is not natural , that statement is an opinion it is not scientific, there is no scientific evidence that truly explains Gay based on pure science , it is only an opinion, ,if you love another man you are free to do so but have rectal sex is not natural, it is the reason to have AIDES and that disease is not natural
I have discussed these things before in this forum, and there is no need to repeat them, go back and read my writing

Many Islam “scholars” would undoubtedly say that you are the one who knows nothing about Islam.

قال الله تعالى : ( لِلرِّجَالِ نَصِيبٌ مِمَّا تَرَكَ الْوَالِدَانِ وَالأَقْرَبُونَ وَلِلنِّسَاءِ نَصِيبٌ مِمَّا تَرَكَ الْوَالِدَانِ وَالأَقْرَبُونَ مِمَّا قَلَّ مِنْهُ أَوْ كَثُرَ نَصِيبًا مَفْرُوضًا(7) النساء

Many would interpret this verse to mean that a Muslim cannot, in a will, dictate inheritance that is not according to God’s words. That will would be NULL.

Do you disagree with the following ruling:

If you agree with it, then you are contradicting yourself in #105.
If you disagree with the ruling above, then you are proving the point I was trying to make all along: Sharia’s law’s interpretation varies between Imams, Sheikhs, Sects, Scholars, etc. Because of that, it is better to separate state law from religion.

I agree with you that I “do not know much” about Islamic law. Not because I do not want to learn, but because, as the example above shows, there are always various interpretations and not a single “truth”.

After 1400 years of Islam there are still muslims who want to kill other
muslims because they are not “True” muslims, there is also an intense
debate about what is islamic and what is not. Most terrorists today are
Muslims and most islamic countries are ruled by dictators, also, social
and economic ills put Muslim countries at the buttom in terms of women
rights, freedom and prosperity.
Despite all of that, there are still idiots out there who chant that
” Islam is the solution” when it is obvious that islamic tradition as
practiced today is at the core of what is wrong with Muslims.
If it sounds like a duck and flies like a duck, then it has to be a duck.

I don,t understand your logic, all scholars know that a will is allowed in Islam, the will is first, God said very clearly, after every rule, من بعد وصية يوصي بها، after the will is executed, this is clear that the will is allowed in Islam ,what you mention does not contradict the provision for will, you will see many Sheikhs who contradict Islamic law, I follow Quraan , and Quraan is the supreme power in Islam, not sheikhs fatwa, many sheikhs fatwa are following interpretations by non Arab Sheikhs whose mother language is not Arabic, we are Arabs we understand Quraan , we should follow Quraan
Do you have problem with what Quraan says? You see I follow Zaheri Mazhab, I never consider the Sheikhs above God or equal to God, Fatwa is only allowed by God and the prophet if he refers to God
Sharia law is God law , not Sheikhs law, read Quraan in Arabic, you must have good control of Arabic language, Quraan gave us alternative, through writing a will, and made the will first, wills have priority, the people who leave a wealth has the right to say where their money should be distributed after their death , not the government as you suggest
Any scholar who contradicts God words is not Islamic scholar
People are encouraged to write a will, most people do not write a will, believing it is not Islamic , yet Quraan clearly allows it , and it is Islamic, sheikhs never talk about the will in Mosques, they are not doing their jobs correctly
There is no contradictions between what I say and what is written in Quraan, and again I am against what you say, people not government decide how their money is distributed after their death, I understand you are democrat ,has no respect to personal freedom, and you like the government to interfere in people decisions , I believe in people and their rights and less government In our life is better system, the government should work for the people not the other way around

I agree. You do not. I am realizing that.

“You like the government to intefer in people’s decisions….”

Where did that come from? When did I ever mention “government” in my comments or said anything about government intervention in people’s decision?

I am only advocating separating church and state, OR religion and law. To avoid everyone’s claim that they can interpret the Quran better than others can, or that my Imam knows better about what “God meant” than your Imam…..

I believe there are two reasons why many muslim counties are ruled by dictators: 1) because someone needs to tell everyone else what the “correct” interpretation of the words of God is, and everyone else must oblige in the state without questioning (as in the case of Saudi Arabia and Iran), OR 2) because someone must force the Islamists to stay out of the government (as is the case of Egypt, Syria, etc.)

I am still hopeful that many Arab Muslim countries will find a way to accommodate Islam, as well as other religions, within modern democratic constitutions. The catholic world provides great examples. In all catholic countries, divorce is legal, although no catholic church today accepts it. You have the right to get divorced by the state, but your church will probably fire you. If muslim countries come up with similar mechanisms, perhaps we have hope. I can live in future Syria and make sure my daughter’s marriage contract prohibits her husband from getting a second wife, and Majedkhaldoun can allow his daughter’s husband to get a second wife if he chooses to as long as he can satisfy his interpretation of God’s words. I will pass no judgement on his beliefs and he will pass no judgement on my Islam. It is possible. I am hopeful.

Rebels could not do the job so they had to outsource the “revolution” to islamist terrorists and foreign jihadists but rebels supporters want you to ignore this fact, they prefer to talk about the support the regime receives from Iran and Hizbullah.
Rebels also failed to win public support in critical heavily populated areas because people did not hate the regime enough to allow thugs with beards to rule their lives. Again rebel supporters do not want you to talk about why 4 years of war was not enough to topple the regime, they would rather change the subject to how the rebels have not stopped killing Syrian soldiers despite Assad’s bombs.
If there was a revolution, that revolution ended when foreign jihadists were allowed in and welcomed by rebels and when rebels randomly shelled civilian areas, kidnapped women and children and killed unarmed Syrians whom they called “kuffar” and “collaborators” !!

Erdogan launched a full-scale war against the Kurds in the territory of their own State and contends that the Kurdish forces are no different from militants ISIS, and therefore they must be fought like terrorists.

Nevertheless, over the past few years, namely the Kurds were the most combat-capable force, which repeatedly gave Islamists fight back. If Turkey was really under attack by militants ISIS, the Turkish authorities have primarily appealed to the Kurds for help, but instead fighting in Turkey are not opposed to the Islamists and against the local Kurdish militias. Erdogan is the first time in a decade could not get a majority in parliament because of the successful performance of the Kurdish forces in the recent elections. In addition, both in Iraq and in Syria, the Kurds became fully military force capable of controlling its territory.

However, instead of supporting the Kurds in Turkey, continue to suffer from the strength of the Turkish arms, which, incidentally, can not positively influence the decision not to separate from Turkey in the case of attempts to create a Kurdish state. The Kurdish people are tired of the unjust persecution and attacks, having to move a lot of suffering since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

4- Destruction of the historical memory (museums and monuments) of Syria and Iraq that helps justify the nation division.

After the war in Syria and the agreement of US and IRAN, point 1 and 4 going on 100%. The Sunna Nation maybe lost to the beneffit of a Chia Nation led by Iran.

Today the Temple of Bel in Palmyra has been destroyed. This is the end of tourism in Syria. Maybe these lands will be given to a bedouin sunna state but I am sure most of Syria will be given as a reward to Assad who sold Syria to Iran while worked for US and Israel with total loyalty.

The truth is that for Isis and Nusra to become the monsters they are today a significant support from locals and neighboring countries is required.
Sectarian tension, oppression by Arab regimes and foreign intervention made it easier for terrorists to dominate rebel forces in Syria, Libya and Iraq but the main factor is the inherit violent trait in Islamic cultures today which put vengeance and revenge over compromise and forgiveness.
Islamism today is an exclusionary ideology that finds excuse for human right violations, if you want a remedy you need to attack the problem not the symptoms, oppressive ideologues are not free and can not be trusted to allow people to be free.

It makes me happy to know about the new park promoted by Kim-Il Sung. It lets me be completely sure that the Assad Regime will politically refom itself for letting Obama be happy. In the same way the whole world knows that the Ayatollas garbage seekers of God will reform the political and security divine services of Iran.

At this point of the war everybody living inside Syria, Lebanon or Iraq knows very well what is all about.

US and IRAN have developed the full plan. Destroy Saddam regime, handle it over to Iran, destroy museums and heritage in Syria and Iraq, attack kurds to limit the borders of future Kurdistan, destroy the syrian revolution by creating the image that IRAN/US joint’s frankesintain is the sunna arabs image, put all arabs sunna, christian, yazidis or whatever they are on the run to Europe, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan,…. Create all the conditions for a weak regime in Syria and Iraq controlled by US, RUSSIA and IRAN.

US and IRAN are now the masters of the Middle East. ISRAEL was the most powerful now will share with Iran.

ALAN, you perfectly know that Israel is just dancing with US, IRAN and RUSSIA. Israel task is to widen the Golan Occupied Heights and making sure it is empty when they need to occupy more lands. Iran will get the rest of Syria. US like Russia will invest and sell weapons. If you think we are fool and you can cheat us then maybe you are the fool or this is your professional aim.

This is an international game and most regional actors are getting agree. But now all fight for a little more stake in the final peace agreement. So now, before the peace, it is time to get more acres of land under anyone’s militias.

IRAN is the new “ORGANIZER” of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. We cannot say CONQUEST, according to the new american-iranian dictionary Iran is ORGANIZING and ADMINISTRATING the middle east for JOINT INTEREST of the WEST and IRAN/RUSSIA.

Let it be clear Iran is here to stay. Most syrians will not return to their homes, not only because of a dictatorship that will remain harder and harder with Iran giving support but because they will find no homes to live in and no government who help them rebuild.

I watched the whole video and here is my honest opinion:

1. Yes the soldier was rough on the boy, but not anymore than some police officers mishandle and mistreat people (especially blacks) in the US today, as we have all seen in videos. This is not to say I condon it – on the contrary, I condemn it very strongly. But I believe the cause is improper training, machoism, and systematic mistreatment of Palestinians – not necessarily outright hatred and disregard for human lives, as in the case of ISIS and the Assad regime.

2. The soldier was more scared than anything else. He kept calling his friends for help. Others kept attacking him and he kept pushing them away. He was trying to arrest the boy – and was focused on that mission. At the end he was just trying to get away. He failed in arresting the child, but managed to save himself. Although he was carrying a machine gun, at no point he used it to even scare the people around him away. Let’s be honest with ourselves for once: What would any Arab soldier do in this situation? (I will give you a hint: Sameer Kuntar – a Hizbullah soldier, murdered an Israeli child in cold blood, and the Arab World celebrates him as a hero to this day)

3. Comparing Isralies soldiers to Assad gangs and ISIS is wrong at best and hypocritical at worst. I remember the days of Abu Ghraib prisoner absue when people compared US actions to Saddam’s torture chambers. Seriously? In the US, a defense minister was forced out of office because US media uncovered and reported on the misbehavior of prisoner guards who were forcing prisoners to strip naked in front of dogs. Saddam used to reward and promote officers who supervise the cold-blooded murder of prisoners. Assad soldiers beat their prisoners to death. ISIS fighters cook their prisoners. Is that a fair comparison to the action of this Israeli soldier? Come on!

You have sold the country to Iran, you have lost your nation. Assad’s Syria is now Ayatollah’s Syria. Even the criminal supporters of Assad will hate their own lives and homes once they are under control of US, IRAN and ISRAEL.
