>>Whenever you say that there is any commandment specially to "rape" women....just quote one...just a single one...and if you can't then my foot is on your face...<<

Read Koran 4:24 - 004.024 YUSUFALI: Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

023.006
YUSUFALI: Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (in their case) they are free from blame,

033.050
YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee;

I suggest you look for the context in all cases especially 4:24 and you will find this is a permission to rape. We realise that once Allah has permitted rape it is no more rape but a holy act! Just ask yourself could the captive~women plead a headache and say no to their captors?

Plato
