I have added some referenced material on Arabia.Cpsoper (talk) 19:21, 17 June 2014 (UTC) Some pertinent material from Edward Lane's writing on Egypt is added as illustrative of this, under a juxtaposed section on Egypt.Cpsoper (talk) 21:30, 17 June 2014 (UTC)


I have added references from the NYT article on the sacralising of rape within the so-called Islamic State, with testimonial evidence, praying before and after rape, and repeated claims that the assault pleases the Deity.Cpsoper (talk) 20:37, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

An anonymous editor from Huddersfield claims the material is not relevant to fertility rites and is poorly sourced. Both assertions are fallacious. What could be more relevant to a fertility rite, namely 'religious rituals that reenact, either actually or symbolically, sexual acts and/or reproductive processes', as defined in the lede, than sacralised rape? The source is an NYT journalist, with direct experience of interviews with victims of IS, what better source is sought? Cpsoper (talk) 21:07, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
