ISIS sanctions organ harvesting from living ‘apostates’… even if it kills them

Islamic State’s human organ harvesting is sanctioned by a fatwa issued last January, when the group’s Islamic scholars explained that internals of ‘apostates’ could be extracted from their bodies for the needs of Muslims, even if the ‘donors’ die.

A document obtained by Reuters reveals that organs harvesting is charitable deed by codes of Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL), maintains IS’ Research and Fatwa Committee.

“The apostate's life and organs don't have to be respected and may be taken with impunity,” says Fatwa (religious ruling) #68 issued January 31, 2015. “The notion that transplanting healthy organs into a Muslim person’s body in order to save the latter's life or replace a damaged organ with it is permissible,” the document says, specifying that removal of organs that “end the captive's life” is also not prohibited.

The Fatwa #68 was reportedly found in a trove of other Islamic State’s documents obtained by the US special forces as a result of raid into eastern Syria in May. Reuters could not independently confirm the authenticity of the document.

The data retrieved in May has been compiled into ‘Lessons Learned From the Abu Sayyaf Raid’ package exposing IS of justifying practices punishable elsewhere in the world, the human organs trafficking being just one of them.

The raid in May that resulted in killing Abu Sayyaf, IS’s top financial official, brought the US seven terabytes of data from terrorist’s computer hard drives, thumb drives, CDs, DVDs and papers, Reuters cited Brett McGurk, the US president's special envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL.

In February this year, Iraq’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohamed Alhakim, called on the 15-member UN Security Council to look at allegations of organ removal by the IS, urging the UNSC to investigate the issue.

He informed that bodies with surgical incisions and missing kidneys had been discovered in shallow mass graves on Iraqi territory.

“We have bodies. Come and examine them,” Alhakim said.  "It is clear they are missing certain parts."

He also said several doctors had been executed in Mosul for refusing to participate in organ harvesting.

In August the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported of French-speaking IS militants openly discussing harvesting human organs from sex slaves on social media back in September 2014.

The fatwa obtained by Reuters does not define who could be attributed as ‘Kafir’ (disbeliever in Islam), but enslaving of minorities practicing other religions on the territories controlled by IS is a well-established fact. Thousands of Iraqi women have already been forced into sex slavery, with as many as 3,000 women and girls having been taken captive only from the Yazidi tribe in Iraq during IS offensives across the region.

IS has issued a number of fatwas, providing legal justification to a range of criminal and openly barbaric practices.

For example Fatwa #64 issued on January 29, 2015, presents regulations for rape, explaining in detail when and how Islamic State militants should have sexual intercourse with female slaves.

IS even has a fatwa justifying cannibalism in extreme circumstances.

“A group of Islamic scholars have permitted, if necessary, one to kill the apostate in order to eat his flesh, which is part of benefiting from his body,” the regulation says.

Please note in the above video, that the ISIS torturers took drugs to remove any trace of pity they might feel for their victims. Even the Nazis and Communists didn't do this! So being tortured by an ISIS thug was like being tortured by a zombie, that was sufficiently intelligent to know how to inflict maximum pain, but sufficiently drugged to have lost all remnants of normal human caring.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
