The truth about Muslims and sex slavery - according to the Quran, rather than Isis or Islamophobes

The above headline at least admits the Koran has commands relating to sex slavery. The excerpt below is the core of the apologist's argument. Can you imagine a "respectable" "liberal" newspaper in the West giving space to anyone else other than a Muslim to justify slavery? The article completely ignores the 1400 years of slavery in Islam, ignores that there was not one Islamic anti-slavery movement, ignores that slavery was only made illegal in Islamic states under duress from the Christian Western countries. One of the tricks going on in this article is to ignore the history of Mohammed and the history of Islam, to focus only on the Koran and ignore the Hadiths. Many of the comments to this piece expose the contradictions and deceptions in the article. And many other comments are complaining that this "liberal" "independent" newspaper is deleting their comments which quote from the hadiths. The chapter on Islamic Cultural Values in my book exposes the claims of this news article for what they are: deceptive apologetics.

The main reference cited is Chapter 23:1-6 in the Quran. It reads:

“And successful are the believers who guard their chastity … except from their wives or those that their right hands possess.”

The reference is about sexual relations, which are forbidden with any woman unless she is a spouse or ‘those their right hands possess’. To be clear, this means a concubine, bondmaid or a slave, but intercourse has to be consensual. Rape is forbidden as it is violent, and Islamic texts legislated for the proper and honourable treatment of slaves.

Even consensual sexual relations with a slave were not permissible if it caused harm and abuse elsewhere (e.g. to a wife) as all parties involved would be affected.
