The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Members Rape Christian \
Mother and Daughter, Kill Four Christian Women for Not Wearing
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has begun to brutally enforce Islamic laws in Mosul, Iraq, which it overran on June 10.
According to a story from the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA), Dr. Sallama Al Khafaji, a member of the Iraq High Commission for Human Rights, told the news organization that on June 21 ISIS began demanding a poll tax (jizya) from Christians in Mosul .
In one instance, ISIS members entered the home of an Assyrian family in Mosul and demanded the poll tax. When the Assyrian family said they did not have the money, three ISIS members raped the mother and daughter in front of the husband and father. He was so traumatized that he committed suicide.
“The Christians have told me that they cannot pay this tax,” said Al-Khafaji, “and they say ‘what am I to do, shall I kill myself?'”
