Jihadists Execute 7 in Syria, 2 by Crucifixion

The crucifixions and other means of revenge levied by ISIL has made it a pariah amongst its fellow Islamist murderers. Even al-Qaeda has turned on its former colleagues.

It has come to this. Now the barbarians are murdering people in Syria not just by shooting them at close range and not just by incinerating their internal organs with chemical weapons. We have reached a depth where brutality again knows no bounds.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) announced – announced! – that they have executed seven prisoners, two of them by execution, in their fiefdom straddling northeastern Syria.

The group claimed (by Twitter, no less) that it had imposed the executions in retaliation for an attack on one of its members, the Daily Star reported.

“Ten days ago, attackers on a motorbike threw a grenade at an ISIL fighter at the Naim roundabout. A Muslim civilian had his leg blown off and a child was killed,” the group said on Twitter.

“Our fighters immediately set up a roadblock and succeeded in capturing them. They were then able to detain other members of the cell.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights posted a photograph of the two prisoners being crucified, right at the convergence of several roads.  Passersby shown in the photos appeared utterly unfazed by the gruesome sight.

One of the men crucified appears in a photo blindfolded and with his head spattered with blood. According to Syrian site, the banner wrapped around his body has this message: “This man fought against Muslims and threw a grenade in this place.”

The crucifixions and other means of revenge levied by ISIL has made it a pariah amongst its fellow Islamist murderers. Even al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, Al-Nusra Front, has turned on its former colleagues.

The SOHR said these were not the first crucifixions by ISIL. On April 16, its fighters crucified a man for theft from a Muslim.

  1. This is what the islamists want to do to the Jews. This is the reason for the wall. This is the reason we don’t want them in our society. If you can’t grow out of the 7th century barbarian mentality, you don’t deserve to use the technology or services of the 21st.

  2. Where are the deniers to blame it all on Israel?

  3. Religion of peace strikes again.

    If the are doing it with there fellow muslim same faith , think about what they will do to non muslim .

  11. Crucifixion is a good ‘ol (AS)syrian technique; they were among the first proponents if not the inventors. The Romans and others learned from them. Removing body parts, even penises and such were a favorite past time, as was piling up decapitated heads.Gentiles recycle. Thousands of Jews were crucified in the Roman occupation. But they did in Rome too, thousands displayed along the Appian Way just as they did from the Yam Hamelakh to Jerusalem. But these guys are definitely choosing something that gets the West’s attention with its worship of crucified gods.
