Rape Used ‘To Recruit’ Female Terrorists

From the defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Samira Jassam

‘Mother’ of Iraqi women bomber network arrested

By QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA and BRIAN MURPHY, Associated Press Writers

BAGHDAD, (AP) — A woman accused of helping recruit dozens of female suicide bombers looked into the camera and described the process: trolling society for likely candidates and then patiently converting the women from troubled souls into deadly attackers.

The accounts, in a video released Tuesday by Iraq police, offer a rare glimpse into the networks used to find and train the women bombers who have become one of the insurgents’ most effective weapons as they struggle under increasing crackdowns.

In a separate prison interview with The Associated Press, with interrogators nearby, the woman said she was part of a plot in which young women were raped and then sent to her for matronly advice. She said she would try to persuade the victims to become suicide bombers as their only escape from the shame and to reclaim their honor

[T]he suspect, 50-year-old Samira Ahmed Jassim — who said her code name was "The Mother of Believers" — has given unusual firsthand descriptions of the possible workings behind last year’s spike in attacks by women bombers.

The Iraqi military spokesman, Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the suspect had recruited more than 80 women willing to carry out attacks and admitted masterminding 28 bombings in different areas.

Female suicide bombers attempted or successfully carried out 32 attacks last year, compared with eight in 2007, according to U.S. military figures. Most recently, a woman detonated an explosive under her robes that killed at least 36 people during a Shiite religious gathering last month…

Al-Moussawi, the military spokesman, alleged Jassim was in contact with top leaders of Ansar al-Sunnah in Diyala, the last foothold of major Sunni insurgent strength near Baghdad. The group is one of the factions with suspected ties to al-Qaida in Iraq.

Al-Moussawi said Jassim "confessed to recruiting 28 female suicide bombers who carried out terrorist operations in different areas." He gave no other details on the locations or dates of the attacks.

In the video played for reporters, Jassim described how she was approached by insurgents to urge women to carry out suicide attacks. She said her first assignment was Um Hoda, a nickname meaning mother of Hoda.

"I talked to her a number of times," said Jassim, who has four daughters and two sons. "I went back to them and gave them the details on her. And they told me, bring her to us. … And I took her to the police station, and that’s where she blew herself up."

Another woman, whom she called Amal, was involved in long conversations, Jassim said.

"I talked to her many times, sat with her, and she was very depressed," she said on the video. "I took her to them, and then went back for her and she blew herself up." …

In speaking with the AP — a week after her Jan. 21 arrest — Jassim repeated statements she had allegedly made to interrogators that insurgents organized rapes of women and that she would then try to coax the victims to become suicide bombers.

She said she was "able to persuade women to become suicide bombers … broken women, especially those who were raped."

Jassim did not offer additional details on her alleged role in the attacks, but suggested she was pressured into working with the insurgency.

She claimed that Ansar al-Sunnah provided her a house in Diyala, where she operated a shop selling the traditional robes for women called abaya. She added, however, that Ansar al-Sunnah once threatened to bomb her house if she did not cooperate…

Just when you thought the ‘Religion Of Peace’ had scraped rock bottom.

    To be honest, nothing surprises me about this “faith” anymore.

    Well, one thing’s for sure, she wasn’t one of the females raped. She’s awfully manly . The only way to find out for sure, would be to remove her veils and coverings, but this would violate her religious believes or be considered torture. Worse, when they give her veils back, she might tie them together and hang herself in her jail cell.

      Thanks a lot for that mental picture before breakfast.

    Oh yeah, remember those women were touted to be eager and willing to sacrifice their lives for Islam? Sure, after being brutally raped and humiliated in the most intolerant society on the planet, and then being reminded of the shame and stripped of that all too important “family honor”…sure!

    Lets try real hard to imagine them doing this without being destroyed as a human being first……and again, as a reminder….did you notice that all of these “leaders” and “recruiters” never seem to have the resolve to strap on the old vest and pull the lanyard in a crowed square themselves? Wonder why all the clerics, mullahs, and jihadists always seem to choose somebody else to be a glorious martyr to Islam instead of themselves.

    Coward sick bastards is why. Dont forget obamy! These are the people you insist are just misunderstood, and can be won over with love and understanding. I think you should send an envoy to show how easily they can be reasoned with. Let’s start with say, Hillary!

    • wardmama4 says:

      SJ exactly what I was going to write – they set up these women to be ‘broken’ (read the 3rd paragraph carefully) and then send them out to be bombers.

      I am about to join with The One ™ – close Gitmo today. I would simply take it a step further and insist that anyone in Gitmo and on the field of battle be killed with prejudice. Stop messing around – end it now.

      This story is just another in a long line of proof that these are not human beings but rather are sub-humans.

      This woman is a jealous pimp, who has told these women they are tainted and to repent and kill themselves. This woman is bitter because no man has batted his eyelashes at her or accused her of looking at him. She’d have enjoyed that prison where the detainee’s were paraded around with dog collars, so I don’t think she should be placed there. She needs one bomb strapped and detonated on her at a time, until her last breath. She was a coward.!!

    Modern-day feminists hard at work.

    Now we know why Stretch wants billions for birth control. It’s an outreach to Muslim women.

  7. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    The religion of peace? Hardly. More like the religion that goes out and gets a piece, then tells the piece to strap on a bomb and blow themself into pieces as a means of redemption. Twisted sadists.

  8. canary says:

    Regarding this pimp…The Clintons, Bill, Hillary,& Chelsea; might be able to help these stained women. So many women’s lives ruined; groped, traumatized, dragged throught the media, courts. Nope. Hillary is is commenting and laughing about her experiences with Bill.
    Print this photo of the worst pimp in history, while it lasts; before the Civil Liberties Union fights to allow her to cover herself with a scary Halloween mask.

  9. 1sttofight says:

    Apparently it is not only females who are raped to force them to be sucide bombers, they are doing it to young males too. Somehow it makes more sense now as to why so many people “volunteer” to strap on a bomb vest.

    Al-Qaeda accused of using male rape to ‘create’ suicide bombers

    By Staff Writer, PinkNews.co.uk • February 4, 2009

    The Sun quotes Algerian militant Abu Baçir El Assimi:

    “The sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations.”

    The paper claims that “intense social stigma and fear of more gay sex attacks leaves Muslims prepared to die.”

    Rape and homosexual acts are punishable by death under Sharia law.

    A suspected terrorist bomber killed in an attempted attack on a security installation in the Tizi Ouzou province of Algeria last month may have been raped, an autopsy revealed.

    News source Ennahar Online said there was “a large tear in the anus of the terrorist, which confirms the sexual abuse. In addition, semen analysis is underway to determine the perpetrator.

    This pimp may be a Bin Laden clone gone wrong. It’s the bridge between her/his eyes and nose, spreading to the furthest point of the outer brow, until you hit the veil, that appears to be of a man. Our countrie muslim doctors educated and working in hospitals here and abroad aren’t capable of highest medical technology. Back in the 70’s one completed the first heart transplant. His compound had doberman’s posted all over his properties, chained to dog houses. They use as us guinea pigs, to keep the terrorist leaders alive. During desert storm, soldiers were told there were many Saddam Hussien imposters medically enchanced. Her/his eyes are Bin Ladens.
