Dear Nuray : Either you are ignorant or in denial or using taqiyya. Norman may have read general comments, but all he wrote is right. Islam allows sex with captured women, you can deny all you want but facts dont change. Quran allows it and Mohammed and all sahaba practised it . History, and ahadiths confirm it.Read on:

4.24 All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree

23.6 Guard private parts except from wives or the (slaves) that their right hands

possess, for then they are not blameworthy (read from 23.1-6)
33.50 O Prophet! We have made lawful to you the wives to whom you have given their dowers; and those ladies whom your right hands possess (from the prisoners of war) whom Allah has assigned to you;
33.52 It is not lawful for you (to marry other) women after this, nor to change them for other wives even though their beauty attracts you, except those (captives or slaves) whom your right hand possesses. And Allah is Ever a Watcher over all things."
70: 29-35 And those who guard their private parts, Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess –

Tafsir Quran by Maodoodi, Book 10, page 137, footnote no. 94

"This verse explains why one is permitted to have conjugal relations with one's slave-girls besides the wedded wives, and there is no restriction on their number. The same thing has also been stated in Surah An-Nisa:3; Al-Mu'minun:6; and Al-Ma'arij:30. In all these verses the slave-girls have been mentioned as a separate class from the wedded wives, and conjugal relations with them have been permitted.

"Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you….." Surah 4:24

Tafsir of Mawdudi, Book2, page 112, footnote 44:

"That is, ‘Those women, who became prisoners of war, while their husbands are left behind in the War Zone, are not unlawful because their marriage ties have been broken by the fact that they have come into the Islamic Zone. It is lawful for those, in whose possession they are, to have sexual relations with them.

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 11, number 2150

Abu Said al-Khudri said: "The apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur'anic verse, "And all married women (are forbidden) unto your save those (captives) whom your right hand possesses". That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period."" [The Qur'an verse is 4:24].

SHAKIR: Whatever communications We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring one better than it or like it. Do you not know that Allah has power over all things?

The History of Tabari, vol 8, pge 29-30

From his share of captive women,prophet gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown) to his father –in-law Omar Ibn Khattab. Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet's other elite companions received slave girls as gifts..

Bukhari yol 3,Book46, No. 717

"Narrated Ibn Aun:

Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day. Nafi said that Ibn 'Umar had told him the above narration and that Ibn 'Umar was in that army."

Bukhari Vol. 5, Bk 59, No. 512

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, "Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned." Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet .

.Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 135:

Narrated Jabir:

We used to practice coitus interruptus with captured women during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle.

"Sirat e Rasulullah" by Ishaq, pge 464

After 800-900 male adults of Bani Quraiza were beheaded in batches, and thrown in trenches dug in Madina, the apostle divided their property, wives and children as booty. . He took Rayhana d. Amr b. Khunafa for himself.
