Sexually Assaulting Islam: The Case of “Muslim” Porn
By Mikail Kahina
For many, the term “Muslim porn” is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms, and an assault against the senses. According to most Muslims, the mere fact of performing in an adult film would place a person outside the fold of Islam. In fact, according to Sunni jurisprudence, a Muslim woman who fornicates with a non-Muslim is guilty of irtidad or apostasy and would be subjected to the death penalty. According to Sunni scholars, a non-Muslim man who has sex with a Muslim girl has committed a capital offence which merits execution. According to Shi‘ite fiqh, however, a Muslim woman who has intercourse with a non-Muslim would merely be a fasiqah, an open sinner, rather than a murtadah or an apostate. In the event that she was single, she would be administered one hundred lashes. In the case of adultery, she would be condemned to death by stoning. As for the non-Muslim man who has sex with her, Sunni scholars would give him the death penalty. In the case of Shi‘ite scholars, some would advocate execution while others say the punishment depends on whether the perpetrator was subject to a treaty with the Islamic state. Any such punishment, of course, could only be applied by a Muslim judge in an Islamic state which as created conditions of socio-economic justice. Muslim jurists generally agree that Islamic punishments cannot be applied extra-jurisdictionally. While Islamic law may seem severe on the subject, mercy is meant to prevail in many instances. In Iran, for example, upon the establishment of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini forgave all the sex workers in the country and found them husbands. The same merciful attitude must be taken towards women involved in prostitution and porn: they are victims of the worst type of exploitation. If any action should be taken, it should be legal in nature, and should be directed towards the pimps who produce such porn. Regardless of various legal stances on the subject, and as disturbing and distressing as it may be to some, “Muslim” porn has become a reality with more and more “Muslim” women appearing in pornographic movies produced in the United States, Europe, and even the Islamic world, fulfilling Muhammad’s prophecy that fornication and adultery would become rampant in the Islamic world.
The Western world has a long history of erotic art, prostitution, and pornography. While the Eastern world is not alien to these phenomena, they have traditionally been repressed and have remained underground. The very mention of “Muslim porn” is thus deeply offensive to Islamic sensibilities. For a Muslim, it comes as no surprise when Western women appear in adult films. Whether they are from Europe, the Americas, Australia or New Zealand, they are the products of promiscuous, liberal, and sexually liberated societies. In the public sphere, Muslim societies present an austere, conservative, appearance. While prostitution has never been eradicated in the lands of Islam, it is not openly available. It is found in dark dubious alleys and behind the scene brothels. With the advent of VCRs, DVDs, satellite television, and the internet, adult films became readily available throughout the Islamic world and are readily consumed as a matter of course. As Shaykh Muhammad al-Mujahid has acknowledged, “the consumption of porn is a major problem in the Muslim community.” In the Islamic world, what one does in one’s home, in private, in one’s closet, is nobody’s business and does not affect the structural integrity of society. It is what is done in public, in open, which must conform to Islamic cultural norms. It was one thing for sexually repressed Muslims to view non-Muslim women engaging in adult activities on film. It is altogether another issue when their own women start acting in them.
The Muslim woman has long been subject to manipulation. Since the dawn of Islam, Muslim women have been eroticized in the eyes of their enemies. In fact, during the life of the Prophet, a mischievous Jew was murdered for exposing the private parts of a Muslim woman. European authors and artists created an entire imaginary universe revolving around the sensuality of Muslim women, turning the veil, the Muslim woman’s symbol of chastity, into a sexual fetish. It goes without saying that the world of harems and orgies depicted in Western literature and art is more the product of European imagination than of Islamic reality. That Westerners wish to exploit Muslim women should come as no surprise to the Islamic world. From the Crusades to Colonialism and all the way to present day neo-imperialism, Muslim women have been booty in the eyes of the infidels: prizes to be taken, either willingly or forcibly. Whether it’s the gang-rapes committed by Zionists terrorists in Palestine, the sexual assaults committed by the Russians in Afghanistan or Chechnya, the mass rapes and murders committed by the Serbs in Bosnia, sex is the ultimate weapon of war. Of course, wars are not waged only on the battlefield; they are waged via the mass media, popular culture, and, of course, by the adult film industry.
In the past, Muslim women were generally impenetrable by infidels--and the pun is deliberate. The closest they could get to Muslim women was adorning prostitutes and porn stars with Islamic names, and dressing them like Arabian princesses. In fact, it was reported in Salon.com in June 7, 2000, that Israeli porn producers were hiring actors who looked like Egyptian stars, using them to shoot porn flicks in Israel. It was only in 2003 that SexStyle, the biggest pornography company in Israel, released a film featuring Arab performing, to the uproar of the Israeli Arab community. It has also been reported that the CIA operates Muslim porn sites as part of their “psychological warfare.” As Joshua Cohen explains in his article on Jewish porn, “The Chosen Peephole: Jews can do Porn just as badly as Everyone Else,” published in the New York Press in July of 2006, “angry-white-man-on-Muslim-woman material has proliferated since the first Gulf War.” According to him:
Anti-Muslim porn is less about religion than about than it is the embodiment of directionless hate in the form of sexual violence. It’s about ripping off that burka to see what’s underneath. It’s about the myth of the Manifest White **** exploring and Christianizing the heathens in Holy scrotum-water.
It was only in the early 90s that pornographers were able to access women of Muslim backgrounds to act in the adult film industry. During the 90s, adult film producers were generally too afraid to identify the real origin of their actresses for fear of violent reprisal by Islamic activists. Tabatha Cash, the French starlet and extreme harlot, appeared in over 100 adult films during the 90s, cashing in on her exotic looks, appearing as an Arab in movies like the Erotic Adventures of Aladdin X and Marco Polo, produced by pornographer Joe d’Amato and Franco Lo Cascio. In this last film, she bears the title of Princess Zahra, a likely allusion to the Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, Fatimah al-Zahra. While the directors might claim that the name was chosen at random, it is not the most common of Muslim names. In fact, like Salman Rushdie who adorned prostitutes with the names of the Prophet’s wives in his book the Satanic Verses, the directors may very well have wanted to slight Islam in the same way. While she claimed to be half-Japanese and half-Italian, she is actually half-French and half-Libyan. For a time, she dated Serge Ayoub, a Lebanese immigrant, and neo-Nazi leader. Since 97% of Libyans are Muslims--the only non-Muslims being the 3% of the population which is comprised of foreign workers--it is safe to say that this little gang-bang girl had at least one Muslim parent. Her Arab origins are also evident in the fact that she named her son Mehdi, another insult to Islam as this is the title of the Awaited Imam, the Savior of Islam, whose arrival is expected by all Muslims, and which is particularly stressed by the Shi‘ites. Besides Tabatha Cash, there are many porn actresses who are rumored to be of Arab origin including Julia Chanel, who is marketed as half-Egyptian, Yasmine Fitzgerald, known as Lilla Fritz, who is allegedly Lebanese, and others who are supposedly Persian like Vanessa Chase, Stacy Carpenter, Mandy Lyn, Raven Lee, and Tanya Foxx, as well as many others who have remained more subtle about their origins.
It was only at the beginning of the second millennium that actresses in the adult film industry started to openly present themselves as Arabs and Persians. This is certainly an anomaly in the world of porn as most actresses change their names and, whenever possible, attempt to hide their ethnic origin to avoid being identified. Some of these actresses are Lebanese, like singer Nelly Maqdisi, who openly admitted to appearing in adult films in the U.S. under an alias. Many of these actresses are beurettes, typically second or third generation North African Arabs or Berbers from Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia, who live in France. Others, however, are bonafide North Africans who performs in pornographic films directed at home, in their very own countries. Some of these are made by French Moroccans when they visit the country, filming their sexual escapades for personal pleasure as well as for profit, posting them on adult websites upon their return to Europe. Other films and photos are produced by Moroccans themselves, sometimes by teenage girls, who post them on their personal web sites, as we learned from the Skyblog scandal. Besides this homemade porn, major pornographic pictures have been filmed in Morocco, one featuring Julia Channel, in which all the actors were dressed in traditional Islamic clothing. Since this was a feature film with a real budget, not some low-budget romp filmed with a camcorder, there is no doubt that its production involved the complicity of segments of the Moroccan government. The same also applies to some gay movies filmed in Moroccan bathhouses. In fact, Morocco has become a hotbed of prostitution and pornographic production, something brought to light by Abdelhak Najib and Youssef Chmirou in their article “L’industrie du film X au Maroc” published in La Gazette du Maroc on July 10th, 2006. They reveal that porn films have been produced in Marrakesh, Agadir, Tangiers, and Essaouira, in downtown areas, villas, the countryside, the desert and the mountains. They also expose the fact that these foreign film producers work with intermediaries in Morocco who set the stage, finding locations to film, apartments to rent, and Moroccan actresses, many of whom are minors, but then again, this is the Maghreb, where anything and everything is available on the flesh market. Regrettably, Morocco, as well as Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates are all featured on worldsexguide.com, a travel guide for sexual tourism. In the meanwhile, Western pornographers are taking are taking full advantage of the legendary beauty of Muslim women in general and Moroccan women in particular due to the desperate financial situation in the Maghreb with its 40% rate of employment. To a large extent, it was the notorious case of Belguel that brought light to such a somber subject.
Using the alias of “Belguel,” a combination of “Belge” and “Geule” or “Jaw,” meaning “Pretty Face,” he first appeared on an American website for international pornographers, describing himself as a “serial ****er.” He litters the website with pictures taken in Agadir, Morocco, featuring veiled Moroccan women being sodomized, their faces covered in semen and urine. A sado-masochist, Belguel often tied up his subjects, some with dog collars and leashes around their necks in sickening scenes reminiscent of the porn produced by American soldiers in Abu Ghraib. As an added bonus to the pictures, he provided personal information on each subject and gave advice to fellow pornographers on how to conquer these Muslim girls. The success of his pictures, which generally involved unattractive women, was startling. It was Belguel’s his focus on veiled women which guaranteed their success. He comments: “Another veiled woman. I picked her up when she was returning from the market. She is not really pretty but ejaculating on the face of a veiled woman…It’s better than hashish.” He was applauded by his fellow pornographers as “a real man” and he was requested to submit more pictures of veiled women. The “hero” of the pornographers continued to release his pictures with their stinging commentaries: “She was fat, innocent, 19 at most. I picked her up near the mosque and ****ed her up the ass within one hour. She is a virgin and she still writes to me. I did not even have to pay her. A few nice words were sufficient.” His commentary is even more disturbing than the images themselves. In one case, he writes,
Look at this girl, her face is covered with two liquids (sperm and urine). She didn’t like it very much but she said that she was open to learning anything new from the West… She is still a virgin, but her face isn’t. She let me stuff her with my sausage (but not of pork evidently!). She said she only had an hour because she had to go home to prepare a meal for her father… She emptied my ink while she was wearing her jelaba… She didn’t even know that I had just ****ed her sister three hours before… Her eyes were red because of my sperm (which must be highly corrosive…) and she panicked about how she would explain the sudden redness in her eyes to her father… Moroccan girls who have never been to Europe are convinced that ****ing will be their ticket to Europe… They walk the streets with their veils and their jelabas. A few minutes later, they were ****ing in front of me. Miracles are possible, even in a Muslim country!
Belguel boast that he had access to so many girls, on the street, next to the beach, coming back from the market, on the way to school, on the way to university, and even coming out of mosques. He asserts that he had sex with an average of forty girls each time he traveled to Agadir, an average of three to four per day. His secret? Hitting on girls in French. If you hit on about twenty Moroccan girls, he said, you are sure to land three. Although he slept with prostitutes in Agadir, he preferred “normal” girls, mom and pop girls, who never got home past seven o’clock at night. He provided so many details about the girls, their family names, their jobs, their family situation, and the schools they attended, that he earned the admiration of the porn community. One pornographer warned him saying “These girls are Muslims. They live in a Muslim country. You are exposing them to a grave danger by exposing them in such a way.” When the site’s moderator, the mysterious Jackson, suggested that he could veil the eyes of the Muslim girls to make their identification more difficult, other members of the web site responded that their faces did not need to be veiled because they were already veiled with semen. As a result of his exploits, some participants commented that “With what Belguel has accomplished, every Moroccan woman walking down the street is a candidate for sex.” Since Belguel was so callously indifferent to the safety of his subjects, they were all easy to track down. As a result, thirteen women are now in prison, and seventy one others are the subject of a criminal investigation. Belguel himself was eventually tracked down, thanks to Belgian police and not Moroccan authorities who had actually released him. He was publicly exposed as being the Belgian Jew, Philippe Servaty, one of the most brilliant reporters for Le Soir newspaper. He admitted:
I am a pervert, a sicko. I am presently undergoing medical treatment… I have nothing against Islam. It was just lust that led me to veiled women… I receive death threats on a daily basis by email and telephone…I am fully willing to cooperate with the authorities.
Evidently, many of these girls never expected their images to be made public, believing they would be kept for private use. Unfortunately, they are now all over the internet and traded on peer-to-peer networks. While many of Belguel’s victims were lured by promises of marriage and passage to Europe, many Muslim girls, motivated by poverty or profit, have become much bolder in both the Islamic and Western world. In Germany, the company Trimax produces Turkish-themed porn, recruiting talent directly from Turkey. In 2004 and 2005, Malaysia was shocked with a few exposures of budding wannabe pornographers who filmed couples having sex for the camera. In the U.K., Simon Egan recently directly a documentary titled Diary of a Porn Virgin which was featured on the Sundance Channel and deals with at a young Muslim woman from the U.K. who left the world of fashion to work in the porn industry. Her website, saharagetsdirty.com, as well as UK Indian Girls, Cream of India, UK Ethnic Models, and Ravishing Indians, actively attempt to recruit other Anglo-Indian girls to act in adult films. There is even the case of Amal Kashua, an Israeli Arab Muslim mother of eight who took part in a porn movie in Israel with her partner Yusuf. She was subsequently attacked by a mob of Israeli Arab Muslims from the village of Tira who attempted to lynch her.
Breaking with past industry practice, a new generation of North African porn stars have now appeared on the scene. The first of these was Dalila, born in Casablanca, Morocco, in 1968. She dominated the adult film industry in Europe during the 1990s and early 2000s, performing in 58 films, and receiving 18 nominations and 12 awards at the European X and Venus Awards in Brussels and Berlin. Rather than dissimulating her religion, she spoke about it openly in the course of an interview. Other North African Arab and Berber porn stars followed in her footsteps, including: Karima, Nadjia, Malika, Latifa, Salina, Safiya, Aziza, Ilhem, Myriam, Yasmine, and many others, all marketing their ethnicity through their very names. As Nadia states, “I’m a French Arab, I don’t deny nor do I hide my origins. If they turn you own, that’s all the better!” As she explains,
When I arrived in Europe, no man had ever touched me. At 25 years of age, I was still a virgin. As a frustrated virgin, I decided to take my revenge. Filled with fantasies, and motivated by a desire to catch up on lost time, I discovered sex, men, ****ing, and gang-bangs.
According to her website, she tours France performing in public gang-bangs and actually invites viewers to sign up to have sex with her. Other websites featuring French Arabs include: Sexy Beurettes, Les Beurettes, Sexe Beurettes, Beurettes Insoumises, Video de Rebeu, Belles Maghrebines, Beurettes en Chaleur, Beurettes vicieuses, Arabe Sexy, Chaudasses du 93, Filles Arabes, Secretaire Beurette, Jolie Beurette, Photos Gratuites Beurettes, Beurettes Soumisses, Spécial Marocaine, among many others. Several of the sites stress on the words soumises and insoumises, “submissive” and “not submissive,” both of which are plays on the word Muslim, which means “one who submits.” The website Milukman includes a video of a French Arab girl who fellates five men while locked in a cage, each one coming to fruition on her face. In a video featured on Beurettes Rebelles, “Malika’s Gang-Bang in Morocco,” one of the three men who take advantage of her wears nothing but a necklace with the hand of Fatimah, a symbol which holds much significance for Muslims throughout the world.
Besides these websites, there is a huge market, particularly in Europe, for movies featuring French and North African Arabs, so much so that beurette movies have become a genre on their own, much like the Oriental, Black, and Latina-themed films produced in the United States. These films include Oriental Lover produced by Stan Lubrick, which features Arab porn stars wearing veils and turbans. Others include Beurette Academie produced by Jean-Claude Bauman and Jean-Pierre Charmontel and the series Beurettes sans tabous and A nous les petites beurettes produced by Lucy Video. The cover of the second volume this last series includes images of the crescent star, a sacred symbol of Islam, while the third volume contains images of mosques *snip*Many of these movies openly mock the traditional morality of Muslims, such as, “They don’t care if they don’t make it to marriage as virgins. The men they will marry will not be good ****ers. They must take advantage of their freedom while they can. Of, course, their asses have not been virgin for a long time and it’s such a pleasure to see them ripped apart.” Another particularly disturbing tendency is the popularity of gang-rape films in France. Called tournantes, some of these films feature French Arab women. Considering the rampant problem of gang-rapes of Muslim girls in the slums of France, such movies can only encourage violence.
By far, the worst web site is Beurettes Rebelles where veiled women with names like Hafida, Nadia, Rachida, Lyam, Nedzma, Aicha, Karima, Djamila, and Fatima, among many others, are penetrated by all possible means. The front page of the web site includes an ad which states: “We are looking for young Arab girls to star in adult films. We pay up to 350 Euros per session” *snip* At the current rate of exchange, that’s a maximum of 442.47 USD for the prettiest Arab girls to get violated by various men, orally, vaginally, and anally. This is only one example of pornographers who are actively recruiting young Arab women, the vast majority of which are Muslims, to act in porno films. The web site includes a disclaimer which states that:
This site is inspired by the Thousand and One Arabic Nights where veiled women are the very symbol of Oriental eroticism. Certain girls, wishing to remain anonymous until the end, simply wear to veil to remain masked. Others remove the veil during the course of filming, unveiling themselves entirely. A religious character must never be given to these veils. This site has no relation whatsoever with religion.
Evidently, none but an imbecile would believe these words. At no time is the hijab eroticized in the Thousand and One Arabian Nights, Shaykh Nefzawi’s Perfumed Garden or Harun al-Makhzumi’s Sources of Pleasure. The web site, with its Oriental imagery, Arabic writing, and superimposed images of naked Arab women masturbating next to mosques, minarets, and even oil wells, is focused exclusively with exploiting the veil fetish and the traditional taboo placed on Muslim women. *snip* While the woman remains, the image of al-Aqsa was removed in July of 2006. The very name of the website, Beurettes Rebelles, can be translated as “Rebellious Muslim Girls.” The producer of the site, a French pornographer known only as “Milukman,” claims that he has never had any complaints regarding his representation of porno stars with Islamic headdress. He says that he buys the scarves himself and that some of the girls come to shoot with their very own hijab on their heads. The website World Art Erotica also features veiled women stripping and prides itself at provoking Muslims *snip*The whole idea of porno stars wearing nothing but black headscarves, face-veils and burqas, is ludicrous. It is simply absurd that a woman would remove all her clothing to be gang-banged while refusing to unveil herself. As the hijab is one of the major symbols of the Muslim faith, representing virginity, chastity, and purity, allowing men to ravage young Arab women and ejaculate on their faces and veils is nothing less than a direct desecration of a sacred symbol. It is as offensive to Muslim sensibilities as it is to Christians when porn stars pose as nuns or wear crosses around their necks as they are subjected to serial sex. Since the adult film industry is dominated by “non-Jewish Jews,” as Luke Ford would call them, the intent can only be viewed as subversive, deliberately exploiting Arab and even Persian girls.
While the Persians have produced pop-singers, actresses, fashion and fitness models like Yasmine Le Bon, Catherine Bell, Elham and Ellie Ghasempour, El Samah (Elli Alibeik), Miriam Shenasi, Nazanin Azimi, Nazanin Afshin-Jam, Sara Racey Tabrizi, Sarah Shahi and Sepideh, all of whom caused scandals within their communities, within the last few years, a wave of Persian porn stars has surfaced in California. The most famous of these Iranian adult entertainers is fashion model Aylar Dianati Lie, the deposed Norwegian beauty queen, who appeared in eight titles using the alias Diana, the Persian Princess, including: 18 and Nasty Interracial 2 (Devil Films), Brand New! (Red Light District), Breakin’ ‘em in 3 (Red Light District), Cum Dumpsters 3 (Red Light District), Just over Eighteen 5 (Red Light District), Little White Chicks, Big Black Monster ****s 17 (Jake Steed Productions), Pink ***** Cats (West Coat Productions) and Throat Gaggers 3 (*snip* As a result of the scandal which ensued, she was disqualified from the Miss Norway 2004 Pageant, and returned to her work as a an aspiring singer and successful fashion model, including a scandalous nude photo shoot on the streets of Oslo. In subsequent interviews she has claimed that she was “drugged out and tricked” into doing porn. Her words have little credibility as she initially claimed that it was her non-existent twin sister had appeared in those movies. She even lied about having sex with singer Robbie Williams, thus living up to her last name: Lie. In several of the films she stars in, the directors make her reveal her Iranian origins and even get her to say “I love to make porn films” in Persian. While she claimed to be part-Persian and part-Norwegian, she is actually 100% Persian, having been born in Tehran, Iran, on February 12th, 1984. She arrived in Norway when she was 2 years old and was raised by Norwegian foster parents. Since she speaks Persian fluently, and cultivates her culture with care, one might assume that her foster parents were also Iranian. As a result of her activities, she claims to have received death threats from Islamic fundamentalists in Norway who insist that she has disgraced Islam and Muslims. Her lawyer, Hanne Gredal, confirms that threats have been made against Aylar. These were apparently reported to the police who provided her with a violence alarm. Despite this sobering experience, she spoke out in support of the rights and freedom of Muslim women and condemned the Islamic extremists who sought to take these away.
While Aylar’s sexual repertoire was limited to performing fellatio and vaginal intercourse with multiple partners, Melody Max, also known as Melody Sweet, Melanie, is particularly notorious for her hard-core antics, including lesbian scenes, anal intercourse, facials, and double penetrations. While she was born in San Jose, California, her parents are Persian and her legal name is possibly Taraneh, the Persian word for “Melody.” She has performed in over 100 adult films, working for such notorious studios as Anabolic Video Productions. Although she has appeared in Latina themed films, she is generally marketed as being Iranian. In fact, there are sufficient Persian porn stars in southern California to justify a film dedicated entirely to them: Kick Ass Chicks 24: Persian Girls, featuring Kiara Rose, Karina Kay, Porsha Blaze, Brooklyn, Stacy Carpenter, Luna, and Melody, most of which are certifiably of Iranian origin, just like Persia who appears in Anal Authority 2, Fresh Pink, Sex and Groping, and numerous other titles Karoline who appears in Real Sex Magazine 19 and Thief Girl and the Detective 2, Tanya Summers, who did Princess of Persia and many other movies in 1993, as well as Sunny, all of whom can be found by conducting advanced searches for “Persian,” “Persia” and “Iranian” on moviesbymail.com.
The back cover of Persian Girls reads as follows:
The country Persia has not existed for hundreds of years. Nowadays, it's known as Iran. But who the hell wants to identify themselves as Iranian? Ever since the Ayatollah told America to go **** itself and took our people hostage, Iranians have been out of fashion here. But let’s face it, Iranian--excuse us--Persian girls are ****ing HOT! The dark eyes and hair, the Mediterranean nose, the dangerously curvy body, the humid ***** lips . . . God damn, these chicks are tastier than a plateful of hummus! **** the ethnic cleansing, buy this movie and enjoy the ethnic filth!
*snip* Whether they are viewed as nominal Muslims, cultural Muslims, bad Muslims or non-Muslims, the women who appear in these pornographic productions are presented as Arab and Persian Muslims. This is what makes them appealing. This is what makes them arousing. They are rarely ravished by Arab men, and never by Persian men. They are violated and desecrated by non-Muslim men, white and black, who are mainly nominal Jews or Christians. In adult films, black men and women never have sex together. While Jewish men and white men are free to have sex with whom they please, black men can only serve white women and black women can only be served by white men. Clearly, the purpose of porn is to divide the black man and the black woman. In the case of Muslims, the motivation is the same. The objective of Arab and Persian porn is to wage war against Muslim women, to defile them, degrade them, and discard them, to objectify them for political purposes and to assault the honor of Islam. It is thus the collective obligation of all Muslims to pressure the producers, ordering them to shut down their sites and stop producing such porn. If they fail to comply, they should be subjected to a class-action suit coordinated by Islamic associations throughout the world on charges of religious defamation
