    Fundamentalist clerics are encouraging women to hook up with lonely Syrian militants

    he jihadists fighting on the frontlines of the Syrian civil war are the rock stars of fundamentalist Islam. Fans make internet videos compiling their greatest hits, and Islamist-run TV stations extol the fighters' manliness and fighting prowess.
    And just like rock stars, these religious fanatics also attract groupies.

    Scores of young Tunisian women have been traveling to Syria to wage "sex jihad" and boost the morale of love-starved Islamists, according to Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi ben Jeddou. "[The women] have sexual relations with 20, 30, 100 [rebels]," the minister claimed in an address before the country's constituent assembly, adding that many of the girls return home pregnant. "They come back bearing the fruit of sexual contacts in the name of sexual jihad and we are silent doing nothing and standing idle."

    The minister didn't say how many girls have headed to Syria with dreams of making out with a mujahideen, but the local media claims hundreds have done so, says Agence France-Presse.

    Such promiscuity might sound like a flagrant breach of Sharia law, the Koran-inspired religious code that bans the faithful from indulging in everything from premarital sex to cigarettes and alcohol. Yet some fundamentalist preachers are more than happy to bend the rules for their religious warriors.

    In December, for instance, Mohamed al-Arifi, a hard-line Salafi cleric from Saudi Arabia, allegedly issued a religious decree allowing jihadist fighters to temporarily engage in "intercourse marriages" with "females as young as 14 years old," Iran's state-run Press TV reported last year. Once the hookup is over, the temporary marriage is considered dissolved.

    Sources close to the sheikh have subsequently denied that he issued such a fatwa, according to Jordanian news site Al Bawaba. But women returning from Syria have claimed preachers instructed them to embark on their comfort mission.

    Well if this is credible news then it’s disturbing. I’m not sure if Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi ben Jeddou is telling the truth, stretching it or lying. He does not bother with evidence just says something is happening.

    What? Clerics have the say so over God's teachings and rules? What else do they bend the word of God for?

    I would think it would be all about what God has given for obedience to a true path.
