A rare video reveals the deadly barbarism that lies at the center of the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS).
The video shows Iraqi Army POWs who were captured by ISIS. Despite begging to be spared, the POWs were taken, dumped in a ditch, and murdered in cold blood.
The men were tossed into a river after they were executed, shoebat.com reports. As ISIS members shout “long live the Muslim nation,” a voice on the tape can be heard saying, “Here was the spark ignited in Iraq. It will arise Allah willing until they burn the armies of the cross in Dabiq.”
“A month after the founding of the so-called Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, it’s richer, better armed, more durable—and dangerous—than ever before,” the Daily Beast’s Charlie Cooper writes about ISIS.
And now ISIS is looking to take its bloody crusade to Europe, the Daily Beast’s Nadette De Visser writes:
“Death to the Jews” chanted the crowd waving the black flags of the Islamic State, or ISIS as it used to be known. They were looking for new supporters for their cause, the creation of a worldwide caliphate answering to the man who now calls himself Ibrahim: a zealot too radical even for Al Qaeda who has stormed through Syria and Iraq carrying out mass executions, crucifying rivals, beheading enemies. But these marchers were not in Syria or Iraq; they were in The Hague in The Netherlands. And their message was one tailored to the disaffected young descendants of Muslim immigrants in Europe.”
I wish the world was “less violent than it has ever been,” as Obama claims. But something tells me that the people in Iraq and Syria, the Middle Eastern Christians being tortured, crucified, beheaded, or forced to convert to Islam and the men in the video above would all disagree.
