So, while the fathers are out in "holy Jihad" to get the promised 72 virgins, they leave their families in the Refugees Camps in Jordan and Turkey. The forgotten families are left to their own devices in the Camps where nothing is for free. Many had to sell their own daughters in sham marriages or outright prostitution to feed the rest of the family.
Um Majed is the matriarch of such abandoned family; her husband owned a car wash in Homs. Last year, he was hit by a stray bullet and after Um Majed nursed him back to health he joined a militia fighting with the Free Syrian Army.
"I now wish the bullet pierced his heart," she says bitterly. "He abandoned me to fight and left me with the burden of supporting the family."
"What does freedom mean?" she asks. "We were living with pride and in our own country. I asked my husband this question. He said that they are Alawites and we fight them. But the Saudis are Sunni like us and they harass Syrian girls. Is this religion? Is this freedom?"
So faced with death from hunger or a life of shame, many are choosing the latter. Those who won't are requesting to be allowed back to Syria. At least 250 refugees are asking to return to their country daily from the camps in Jordan.
Syrian Refugee Camps to many Arabs are nothing more than sex slave markets, where the younger the slave is the better. The matchmaker speaks of her brides and grooms "Girls are between 12 and 21. The grooms are always in their 40s, 50s, or 70s. They want beautiful girls, the younger the better."
Everything is for a price and all girls as young as 12 are treated as objects for sale.
"Wherever I go I get proposals," Eman a 29 years old refugee says with more weariness than pride. "They ask, can I smell your perfume for 20 dinars? ($28) Can you lift your veil for 35 dinars ($50)? I'd rather die of hunger than do something wrong."
Prices of brides had plummeted to 100$, many child brides are abandoned weeks after the marriage to the extent that a 15 years old girl had been married three-four times already.
