The money is drying up for the Muslim terrorist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram, and they are finding it increasingly more difficult to fund their terrorist activities without a fresh injection of cash every single day. The robbing of the local villages has also run dry, as they have been forced by many nations in the coalition, as well as the Russian and government-loyalists in Syria, to flee regions that were formerly under their sole control.
During the Obama years, ISIS grew to outrageous proportion and Boko Haram tore through parts of Africa with a vengeance, taking many young women hostage from schools and villages. These were seen at the time as terrible tragedies, but little was done by that administration to do anything about it. The more important agenda at the time seemed to be getting Obama reelected in 2012.
It has now come to the attention of British authorities that with oil sales dropping dramatically for the ISIS forces and with the illegal tax revenues that they were imposing becoming non-existent with their flight from these areas, they have been turning to one sure way to fund their terrorism: The sex slave trade. Thousands of women have been enslaved, some as young as 10 years old, in order to sell them for millions of dollars throughout the year. A new reports estimates that these disgusting cowards made between 10 and 30 million dollars just this past year from this nightmarish industry!
Terrorists are using human trafficking, including trading in sex slaves, as a new source of funding, according to a new report.
Groups, including Isis and Boko Haram, are turning to hostage-taking and ransom efforts as historical revenue streams such as taxation and oil sales dry up, the research found.
The study by foreign policy and security think tank the Henry Jackson Society suggests kidnapping brought in $10 million to $30 million for Isis last year.
It also details how extremists are using sexual violence, including rape, sexual slavery, and forced marriage, to boost recruitment, galvanize fighters and punish disbelievers.
Victims cited in the study include a 10-year-old Libyan girl who was repeatedly raped by traffickers while she was being held in a camp.
“It is important this is recognized in the interpretation of terror in our current laws.”
The report, entitled Trafficking Terror, found terrorists are using organized crime tactics such as money laundering, migrant smuggling, human trafficking, drugs and firearm smuggling, with sexual slavery markets commonplace in Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria.
Its author, Nikita Malik, concluded that financial gain is a key driver behind sexual slavery, with ransom payments linked to sexual violence.
The report recommends British laws, including the Modern Slavery Act and Terrorism Act, should be interpreted more broadly to reflect sexual violence being used as a tactic of terrorism.
This criminal activity has affected so many people and so many families that it is imperative for the nations to band together to thwart this horrible practice and dissuade the United Nations from supporting nations that turn a blind eye toward these Islamic practices and cultures.
Before this comes to a halt, thousands more will be enslaved and thousands more will die. It is a national disgrace that America had waited idly by under the Obama administration and merely watched as these poor young women were brutally raped and enslaved all to feed the coffers of murderous cowards.
