Angelina Jolie Discusses the Enslavement of Women by the Islamic State

The well-known Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie appeared before the House of Lords several days ago to testify about her work with girls and young women who had raped and enslaved by the Islamic State. In the following clip you’ll notice that JIM is never mentioned, but it’s a safe bet that her audience is in no doubt that it was devout Muslims who did all the raping and enslaving.

Angelina Jolie Tells Heartbreaking Tale of Girls Who Were Raped and Sold Off for $40

Angelina Jolie has given a heartbreaking account of girls she has met in conflict zones who have been repeatedly raped and sold off for as little as $40 each.

The Hollywood star and UN special envoy for refugees appeared alongside former Foreign Secretary William Hague before the House of Lords Committee, to speak about their campaign against sexual violence in conflict.

Jolie described how she had felt “absolutely helpless” after meeting one young girl who refused to speak to anyone after being “brutally raped multiple times”.

She said what was even worse than the physical violence was the feeling of worthlessness they felt when men bartered over their monetary value when selling them off as sex slaves.

  1. The rape of young girls and women by Muslims has been going on for a long time now in EU and UK. It has been brushed aside, buried under the carpet by the hypocrites who run our societies. We will never defeat Islam until Post-Modern PC Victimology has been trashed and buried forever.

    The barbarians in the Middle East who pretend to be human beings ought to be thrown onto a pyres and sent to their imaginary, forever stitched-up virgins.

  2. While Jolie only mentions females as victims to Islam – which I find frustrating in her selective female based alarm ringing because there are also many, many males who actually lose their lives to horrific methods of torture and killing under Islam while at least the females do survive their ordeal – at least her ‘celebrity’ status is garnering another look from those who have been far too busy in their lives to pay much attention to what is going on in M.E.

    Let us hope that Jolie’s exposure wakes even more people up to what Islam is really about.

  3. At least Angelina Jolie is managing to remind the world of the plight facing these women who had been captured and then sold as slaves.

    The girls and young women have been very brave in the circumstances. Some girls have committed suicide because of their ordeal but others have either escaped or have been released.

    Angelina took the time to visit these Yazidi and Christian girls and her ability to highlight their plight because she is famous helps to publicize what takes place among those who are within daesh.

    There is one image that has burned in my mind. No it is not that of a child that has been posed on a beach, it is that of a Jordanian pilot as he was burned to death.I continue to pray for this man and his family. Putting that aside there are other images of men having their throats slit because they are Christians and other men being burned to death (also in cages) in the Yazidi area of Iraq. Those images are searing within my mind.

    It is appalling that in this day and age we continue to have sex slaves in places like Iraq and Syria as well as other female slaves in India (unless the daliht girls are rescued).

    I am happy to know that one famous person cares enough about those enslaved girls to the point where she voluntarily speaks up on their behalf. I hope that someone will speak up about what the boys and young men have also faced at the hands of daesh.
