An ISIS provocateur writing in a propaganda magazine for the group declares that the first lady is worth about $40, reports the Daily Beast. The piece by a supposedly female writer defends the Islamic State's practice of trafficking in human slaves and predicts slave markets will come to pass in the West. “And who knows, maybe Michelle Obama’s price won’t even exceed a third of a dinar, and a third of a dinar is too much for her!” The author also calls out the West for hypocrisy for criticizing the taking of slave girls during battle while allowing prostitution. “She lives by selling her honor, within the sight and hearing of the deviant scholars from whom we don’t hear even a faint sound.” (More ISIS stories.)
