Tunisian Women Go on ‘Sex Jihad’ to Syria, Minister Says

Tunisia, the largely moderate North African country, has struggled to stymie the flow of hundreds of young men leaving to fight alongside rebels in Syria’s more than two-year-long, bloody civil war.

Now, the interior minister says, the country must also slow a stream of young Tunisian women leaving for Syria on “sexual jihad.”

The Arabic term (jihad al-nikah) describes a phenomenon, evident in other Arab countries as well, of women traveling to the battlefield to provide comfort—and sexual favors—for the rebel fighters. Some hardline jihadists consider the practice a legitimate complement to Holy War.

“They have sexual relations with 20, 30, 100″ militants, the minister, Lofti Ben Jeddou said during a national security address to members of the National Constituent Assembly, according to the AFP. “After the sexual liaisons they have there in the name of ‘jihad al-nikah,’ they come home pregnant.”

The minister did not say how many women have traveled to Syria, though local media reports have suggested hundreds of women have done so. He added that the government has prevented some 6,000 Tunisians from traveling to Syria.

The problems of the world are summed up in one word ISLAM. The world community should just outlaw this religion like the Egyptians did the Muslims Brotherhood.

So I guess if you're a woman, you can get the 72 virgins without blowing yourself up. Neat.

Why in the world would these Tunisian women want to do this when they could be earning $67.55 per hour working at home on their laptop computers?

There is no such as as Sex Jihad in Islam. If a woman serve 100 men, it's a prostitution. Adultery. A poliandri.

There are some rules in Islamic Marriage such as the contract of Marriage and a woman should only serve a husband. A husband can have 1 or 2 wives. Even four (it's maximum number). But a women cannot have more than one husband.

If a woman get divorced, she should wait for 3 months before she could get marry with another man. If she is pregnant, she has to wait until the baby is born. This is to ensure who is the baby's father.

Lazy Irresponsible Media & Rumors Of Comfort Women. I want news reports to be straight forward not how journalists feel about it. I want them to note known facts about the sources. and list some facts to give us perspective. Example: today's statement by Tunisian Interior Minster. Here is the background that I wish all news outlets would mention before slandering honorable women in Tunisia and Syrian rebels. 1)A few months back, pro-dictator Mubarak n Egypt spread completely MADE UP religious degree permitting Muslim women 2be comfort women for anti-coup protesters. The rumor was proven false but media continued to used it. 2)Syrian regime picked up on that and claimed that Syrian Rebels did the same thing. 3)Shia Iranian and Lebanese (Hizbulla) media outlets also started spreading the false rumor to get back at Muslim rebels fighting Alawites in Syria. Oddly enough Shia religion has major tenet of belief called “ZawajAlmutaa” which means pleasure marriage. Temporary form of sex4money marriage. 4)Now, Tunisian interior Minister, not part of the ruling party of Islamic reference that won the first free elections in Tunisia’s history, wanted to slander the ruling party in the middle of a political crisis there and feed the same falsehoods that helped the coup in Egypt happen, announced shamelessly that Tunisian women are being comfort women in Syria.

@abnerc1959 Why stop banning religions at this one?  They're all myths that create artificial differences between us and provide fallacious rationales for extremist behaviors.  Why not get rid of them all instead of playing the "my invisible friend is better than your invisible friend" game?

@shawn_cowdin ... I've tried several times to make sex jihad jokes in response, but nope. Nothing that isn't horrible is possible here.

@SamSammy Excuse me Sam, its not the Shia religion that allows ZawajAlmutaa, its your God who has allowed sex, sex and sex every where in Quran and Hadis, refer your Quran section 5, Surah Nisaa (women) Ruku 4 and stop being cute. The permission is very clearly inscribed in Quran but those who claim to understand Islam rejct this. Muslims are now more knowledgable than God and Prophet!!!!!

@SamSammyGood try!

1. Several news sources reported the statement by the Tunisian Internal Affairs minister.

2. Several Arab newspapers reported a few months ago the firing of the Mufti of Tunis for condemning  "Sexual Jihad" and labeling it simply as prostitution.

3. The Tunisian Minister of Women's Affairs only yesterday issued a statement promising to expand education and awareness among women about this horrid practice, while offering protection and aid for those 'warriors' who came back pregnant from Syria.

On another score:

1. Neither Shiites nor Sunnites  condone "temporary marriage." Only extremist Islamists, like the Muslims Brothers, do. Recall, five months in Egypt when President Mursi signed the decree issued by the Egyptian Constitutional Council, facilitating this type of inhuman practice by legalizing marriage of 14-year old girls. Egyptian newspapers related the details of this officially-condoned rape, with the husband of the child wife being rich and old man, who usually divorces the child  5-6 days after the brief ceremony and passing the monies to the child's parent. Of course, your Muslim Brothers are Sunnites, waging a holy war against the Shiites!

2. The Tunisian government, in the person of the Minister of Women's Affairs did confirm the statement of the  Minister of Internal Affairs, who is, at any rate an ally of the Muslim Brothers and a member of their cabinet.

Finally, the cases of rape in the areas controlled by the "Free Syrian Army" in Syria are not a few. The cases of rape on Syrian women in the refugee camps controlled by the :Free Syrian Army," particularly that in Jordan, was seen by everybody on CNN.

Your comment, almost totally devoid of facts, is beneath contempt, as it attempts to draw the attention of the world community from this abhorrent and primitive practice called for mostly  by Sunnite extremist Muslims, which somehow I suspect you are one of.
