Why does this keep happening? Yes, sexual molestation happens all over. But we see Muslim migrants involved in this kind of story is seen on a not infrequent basis. Why? One reason may be because such treatment of infidel women is sanctioned in the Qur’an.
In France, a Muslim quoted Qur’an while raping his victim. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote the Qur’an to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers. In Pakistan, another Christian woman recounted that her rapist was also religious: “He threw me on the bed and started to rape me. He demanded I marry him and convert to Islam. I refused. I am not willing to deny Jesus and he said that if I would not agree he would kill me.” Rapists demanded that another girl’s family turn her over to them, claiming that she had recited the Islamic profession of faith during the rape and thus could not live among infidels.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Catania, 13 year old raped by 7 Egyptians: the shocking rape in front of her boyfriend,” translated from “Catania, 13enne violentata da 7 egiziani: lo stupro choc davanti al fidanzato,” by Massimo Balsamo, il Giornale, February 3, 2024 (thanks to Medforth):
Another horror story, yet another young victim of sexual violence. Catania is in shock over what happened to a thirteen-year-old girl, raped by a gang of seven Egyptian boys in the municipal gardens of Villa Bellini, one of the two oldest gardens in the Sicilian city. According to what has been learned, the District and Juvenile Prosecutor’s Offices have already ordered and had the Carabinieri arrest the seven suspects, three of whom are minors. Having initially escaped arrest, the seventh wanted man was tracked down at 1.30pm in Piazza Dante, while he was in the process of recovering his personal belongings and then fleeing in an attempt to cover his tracks in the community where he was staying.
The violence against the thirteen-year-old dates back to the evening of January 30: according to a very first reconstruction of the facts provided by the Carabinieri of the provincial command of Catania, the young woman and her seventeen-year-old boyfriend were approached by the pack near the bathrooms of the municipal garden of Villa Bellini, at that hour almost deserted. At a later time, the foreigners threatened the couple: while the boy was beaten, immobilized and kept away, the thirteen-year-old was raped by two of the suspects while the other five looked on. Panicked and in pain, after the second abuse the young woman found the strength to free herself from her tormentor and escape with her boyfriend.
According to what was reported by Repubblica, the victims screamed but no one came to their aid. After the violence, the two were rescued by some passers-by in nearby Via Etnea. It was the two friends who reported the violence who started the investigations by the Catania police. Thanks to the testimonies of the rape victim and the boy and the investigations of the officers – starting from the images of the video surveillance cameras placed inside Villa Bellini – the police were able to identify the seven held responsible. The Carabinieri of the Investigative Unit and colleagues of the Scientific Investigations Section also collected various biological traces. Arrest orders were thus issued against the 7 young people, three of whom were taken to the Catania Piazza Lanza prison, one under house arrest and the other three to the Catania initial reception centre.
The drama has not gone unnoticed by politicians, thanks to the recent cases of Caivano and Palermo. Today in the Etna capital, visiting the Gigafactory 3Sun, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni expressed closeness to the young victim: “It strikes me that on the day in which a very young martyr of the Christian tradition is celebrated, we should see another very young victim of sexual violence. I want to say this to express my solidarity with her and her family. The State will be there and justice will be done.” Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini was very harsh: “Don’t come and talk to me about ‘tolerance’ or ‘error.’ In the face of horrors like this there can be no clemency but only one cure: chemical castration. I count on the proposal presented by the League to be voted on as soon as possible.” Annalisa Tardino, regional commissioner and MEP of the Salvini Premier League, called for exemplary sentences: “We remain firm in the idea that chemical castration is needed for rapists and pedophiles, life imprisonment for similar episodes, as well as greater security in our cities. For the foreigners repatriated immediately! In Egypt they would never have allowed such behavior. The safety of our children must be a priority throughout Italy.”
Close updates on the ongoing investigations are expected: the deputy prosecutor Sebastiano Ardita and the deputy Anna Trinchillo coordinate the investigations at the district attorney’s office, while the prosecutor Carla Santocono coordinates the investigation at the prosecutor’s office for minors. The news of the gang rape against the very young girl arrives in the days in which Catania celebrates the patron saint of the city, Sant’Agata, who the proconsul Quinziano martyred, even having her breasts torn out with pliers, because she refused to marry him.
