Going to Great Lengths to Prevent Adultery

Some women take adultery very seriously, but choose a different solution than Lorena Bobbitt might suggest if she were to be asked about the issue. According to A. Saleh of the Kuwait Times, the political activist Salwa al-Mutairi has proposed a solution to adultery: "Female activist calls for legalizing sex slavery" (June 4, 2011):
A female political activist and former parliamentary candidate has recommended the introduction of legislation to legalize the provision of enslaved female concubines for Muslim men in Kuwait in a bid, she says, to protect those men from committing adultery or corruption.

The activist, Salwa Al-Mutairi, suggested apparently seriously in a video broadcast online that she had been informed by some clerics that affluent Muslim men who fear being seduced or tempted into immoral behavior by the beauty of their female servants, or even of those servants 'casting spells' on them, would be better to purchase women from an 'enslaved maid' agency for sexual purposes.

She suggested that special offices could be set up to provide concubines in the same way as domestic staff recruitment agencies currently provide housemaids.

"We want our youth to be protected from adultery," said Al-Mutairi, suggesting that these maids could be brought as prisoners of war in war-stricken nations like Chechnya to be sold on later to devout merchants.

"This is not religiously forbidden," she added, indicating that Caliph Haroun Al-Rashid (766-809 AD) was married to one woman but possessed 200 concubines.
One can see why the good Caliph had no time for adultery! There's simply nothing like a little sexual enslavement of women to circumvent corruption. And no wonder that Bin Laden wanted to restore the Caliphate, given the great good that it offered. Perhaps he even hoped to assume the noble position himself? No matter now, for he's gone on to his reward of 70 perpetual virgins.

But speaking of adultery, why isn't Salwa al-Mutairi doing her own part to preclude it? If she really trowels on the make-up and tricks herself out in clownsuits as she appears to do in the above photo -- if that's not just a photoshopped image -- then no wonder she worries about her husband straying from the strait-and-narrow path . . . if she even has a husband.

But to be serious about this issue of sex slavery, note that it already exists.

In one of the media stories about this woman's Islamic "modest proposal" was a quote from a Muslim woman wondering if al-Mutairi would have approved of invading Iraqi soldiers claiming Kuwaiti women war captives as sex slaves for their soldiers.

Yeah, I read that, too, but the answer was that sex slaves must be non-Muslims.

Sharia rules, you know . . .

Anonymous, thanks for your comment. I realize that most Chechens are Muslim. The woman calling for sexual slavery probably meant to apply this to Russian women.
