It’s called “smart power”, this showing respect for one’s enemies and empathizing with their point of view. And it’s what Hillary Clinton believes will “change the process for peace in the 21st century.” So, while Clinton is respecting and empathizing away, this is what America’s enemy is doing:
Overall the guidelines make it clear that, in the mind of ISIS leaders, “It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property, which can be disposed of.”
The most shocking information the pamphlet offers is the notion that it is “permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”
There is no clarification offered in the document as to what might make a young girl “fit” to be raped.
Middlemen with ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have turned to a grim new method of trying to secure funds in recent days. With the group having failed to strike deals to ransom the U.S. hostages in its custody — instead beheading three of them since July — its intermediaries are now trying to negotiate the sale of the body of at least one of the men it killed.
Three sources in contact with ISIS or its associates told BuzzFeed News that it wants to sell the remains of James Foley, the U.S. journalist whose August death was the first in a series of high-profile executions of Western hostages by ISIS hands.
They said ISIS wants $1 million for Foley’s body, which it would deliver across the border to Turkey, and that the group was willing to provide a DNA sample to facilitate a deal.
Is anyone, anywhere, joining Clinton in respecting these animals and empathizing with their plight as you walk down the “smart power” highway together toward peace?
