NEWLEY RELEASED PHOTOS SHOW: ISIS Takes Twenty One Christians, Brings Them To The Beach, And Beheads All Of Them. They Then Release This Message To All Muslims: Whoever Beheads A Christian Will Gain Salvation So Kill Christians Wherever You Find Them

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

As a sequel to burning alive of the Jordanian POW pilot Moath All-Kasasseba, ISIS decided to behead 21 Christians on a beach front in Tripoli Libya as their magazine Dabiq said that its branch in Tripoli had captured randomly from an apartment complex after checking their identification cards which said “Coptic Christian” and then executed the 21 Christian Copts after being kidnapped late last year.

The undated photos showed the captive Coptic Christian workers wearing orange jumpsuits usually donned by Islamic State prisoners before they are executed by the jihadists.

ISIS as an excuse for the beheadings and the bombing of Our Lady of Deliverance Church in Baghdad which claimed the lives of dozens of Christians in Iraq at the time, saying that all this was “in revenge for the Camellia Shehata and Wafa Constantine and the other sisters tortured inside the Coptic church in Egypt”. The story was in reference to the two women, which erupted in much controversy in Egypt about unconfirmed reports the two had converted to Islam, and the intervention of the church at the time.

Grief and sorrow followed 6 villages (Alaour- Mnkerios- Dysh- Allsoppa- Aljebali- Samson) north of Minya, following the publication of the executions.

A video capturing a tour of one village where seven of the victims came from interviewing the grieving families which breaks the heart. It shows the depraved and sad condition of the Christian Copts in Egypt. The young men were simple bread winners who sent whatever they can glean from Libya to sustain their families back in Egypt:

Many Egyptians are angered. Mustafa Bakri a TV commentator could not hold his tears as he announced the news and had to stop airing the piece:

“Just now they announced the butchering of 21 Egyptians comes to us now. I have seen their family and have seen their pitiful condition and how they live in such poverty … young men, like roses” says Bakri asking for an intermission after he realized he could not hold his tears.

It is effecting Copts as it is Jordanians for the burning of their POW.

The terrorist magazine, said that the attack on the Baghdad church was planned by Huzaifa Batawi then, in collaboration with the ISIS senior military commander Abu Ibrahim al-Zaidi, who died.

ISIS justifying its target of Christians in Iraq that since it was away from Egypt which prevented them from carrying out attacks against Copts, but now since their penetration in Libya and now in Sinai, “it is easy to implement retaliatory attacks against Christians in Egypt” according to ISIS.


The caption says “Revenge For The Muslimat (Muslim girls) persecuted by the Coptic Crusaders of Egypt”

While the method of killing was not declared by ISIS, from the photo above, it becomes obvious that each of the executioners have a knife which the handle blade looks like the blade of a Samurai sword can clearly be seen and usually when ISIS dresses in the black attire, it is for a beheading scene.

ISIS declared in its magazine that every Muslim must kill Coptic Christians wherever they are found:

“And thus, the Islamic State strikes terror in the hearts of the Copts after it strikes terror in the hearts of their Catholic allies before … Finally it is important for Muslims everywhere to know that in the great reward to be found on Judgment Day for those who spill the blood of these Coptic Crusaders wherever they may be found”.

The reference to Catholics by ISIS is regarding the history of wars between Islam and the Catholic Church when Islam protested against Catholic doctrine.


The photo captioned by Dabiq states “Pope Shenouda, the dead Taghut (Tyrant) of the Copts”.

All the kidnapped workers belong to the province of Minya from impoverished villages in Upper Egypt were kidnapped between late December and early January in the Libyan city of Sirte.

Sirte, 500 kilometres east of Tripoli, is in the hands of Ansar al-Sharia, which gave its allegiance to Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi the leader of ISIS.

Egypt’s foreign ministry is following the development and trying to verify the claims, spokesman Badr Abdel Atty has said.

On Thursday evening the Egyptian presidency issued a statement saying that it was following the matter closely and seeking to verify the information. The statement added that the committee assigned by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to follow the situation of the kidnapped workers was in contact with official and non-official Libyan sources in order to find out the latest developments in the case on the ground.

In January Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry assigned a special committee to secure the return of the kidnapped nationals.

The Islamic State also said its kidnapping of the workers “commemorates” the October 2010 bombing of the Catholic Church in Baghdad in 2010 which killed at least 58 Christians.

Several Coptic Christian Egyptians have been killed in Libya in recent years. Last year, the bodies of seven Christians who had been shot were found near the city of Benghazi.


The bodies of seven Christians were discovered on a Libyan beach near Benghazi, each one with bullets in their heads.


In December, armed men abducted and murdered a Coptic teenager in Sirte after murdering her parents.

Thousands of Egyptians work in Libya, primarily in the construction industry.

Egypt renewed its warning against travel to Libya in December.

We must consider the serious issues on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. For example, we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who literally live under slavery. We are a unique organization (Rescue Christians) who rescue Christians, perdominately in Pakistan that live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks in kilns under the heating sun. Christians too are burned in furnaces in Pakistan with no one to morn them. To see an example out of the thousands we rescue, click here, and listen to the amazing testimonies first hand on how you can help and make a difference, now in this life and for eternity.

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal”.CONSIDER DONATING TO RESCUE CHRISTIANS

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Dear Lord above. Right now I can’t put into words how this made me feel.

    • Marco Vincent

      This begs the question, are the two witness actually the Two Churches? Catholics and Orthodox?

      • Julie LaBrecque

        I know Jesus told his disciples “You will be my witnesses… in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) I really cannot make a firm conclusion.

      • Grandmere

        This idea has been proposed here before. We need to pray for wisdom.

        • Marco Vincent

          And pray we must.

      • theophorus

        I believe I first heard this from you on this site and it’s a fascinating question.

      • Pothos08

        Good question, but no the two witnesses are not symbolic of a group they are actually 2 witnesses.

        • Marco Vincent

          Well, thanks but to me its still an open question, as whether or not it is a symbolization or not, because the nature of the Book of Revelation , which are symbolic visions, full of parable and imagery of a prophesied future. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not questioning the End Times Prophecies, I’m just putting forth a food for thought, given the recent events in which the Middle Eastern and African Christianity are facing its greatest persecution since the rise of Islam so many centuries ago.

          • susan

            I’m with you Marco. And possibly it will be a dual fulfillment. People misunderstood horse and ass…i dread to think what happened to those who got it wrong. I’m hoping the earth will swallow up some of these evil people soon.

  • Marco Vincent

    Martyrs, all of them. My hart goes to their families.

    A short prayer :

    Oh, GOD forgives them and accept them at your side in Paradise. Give Justice to their persecutors. Show your might and mercy towards those that deserve it. Protect our brothers and sisters in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East from the fangs of the beasts. May your will be done on Earth as in Heaven above.

    In the name of THE FATHER, THE SON and THE HOLY SPIRIT.


    For them–a coptic burial hymn called Golgotha ( usually sung during Good Friday ) :

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Thanks, Marco, beautiful prayer. Of all the gruesome stories we’ve heard, this one someone had a special effect on me, don’t know why, maybe I will be given discernment why.

    • Kamau40

      Beautiful prayer coming right from your heart. The hymn was also very appropriate during this time. Thank you.

  • Impeach Obama Now!

    Obama’s religion of peace JV Team is at it again I see!

    • Julie LaBrecque

      With a JV team like that, who needs a varsity?

      • Grandmere

        It seems that we are the JV.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          And a darn good one at that!

  • Kamau40

    My heart, prayers and thoughts goes out daily to all of the Coptic Christians and their families.

  • Trevor

    Rest for a little while, brothers, for more will join you.

    God’s wrath multiplies against this world every second of every hour of every day…

    May God give these martyrs souls rest and comfort until the time is complete.

  • Grandmere

    Libya and Yemen. Two of O’s success stories. “Let’s see. Libya, check. Yemen, check. Too bad Egypt didn’t work out.”

  • Grandmere

    As we embark on the Lenten season, we bow our heads, marked with ashes, and humbly cry Kyrie Eleison. Thanks, brother.

  • Grandmere

    It is permissible to strike the wolf who comes to devour your household.

  • RodK1975

    Apparently you misunderstand my statement. I didn’t say this was God’s wrath. I meant God’s wrath is multiplying because of things like this. One day it will be unleashed upon this earth.

  • Marco Vincent

    Thanks, I’m aware of the classification but I group all others outside the Roman Catholic Church, excluding/ except for all reformationist ( Calvinist, Lutheran, and any of the Protestants, Pentacost), into one group –The Orthodox Church, just for the sake of simplicity.
    So for the layman term…. its 3 groups…Roman Catholic Church, All of Reformationist Church, and All of Orthodoxy.
    So thats it, Okay? No hard feelings.

  • Grandmere

    Rod did not mean that the killings were God’s wrath. He meant that the killers are storing up for themselves God’s wrath.

    • RodK1975

      Feels good to be understood… that’s a relatively new phenomenon for me… ;-))

      • Grandmere

        Got to stick up for my friend.

    Notice the emotionally filled news man in Egypt as opposed the emotionally dead news people in this country.

  • Slartybartfast

    Jesus, although divine, was himself slaughtered in his human nature. God only allows evil so that a greater good will come out of it.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    The one true God is a God of Love; love that is forced, demanded or imposed is not Love: Allah, the ‘god’ of Islam is a ‘god’ that demands and imposes himself by force. I believe that you expect God to swoop down and not allow people the free will to act as they choose. If you force someone to love you, is their forced ‘love’ truly love?

    The only evangelical that speaks out for us is Walid and his son Theodore. The silence from American Christian groups is deafening.

    Well, lets, for argument sake, imagine he didn’t exist, then non of what ISIS is doing would be wrong! It least not in the objective sense! It would be your opinion vs theirs. In other words, good and evil, rght and wrong are merely subjective terms.

    That’s some predicament you’re now in… arguing something to be wrong or evil.

  • shoebat

    You Lying Tongue. I would not mind chopping it off and accuse me all you want. If you were vigilant you would monitor what I monitor for yourself. But since you do not read or speak the language, I am able to monitor things for you. Now, go get lost and never show your stupid self here ever again you lazy lying false accusing bum.

  • susan

    Whom do you hold accountable for your actions..both the good and the evil ones? Yourself? Your neighbor? Your parents? How do you know which acts are evil? Which acts are good? Do you like to read? You might enjoy reading books by C.S. Lewis.
    My favorite is the Great Divorce..but you might need something more…..straightforward.

    please pray for the christians and all other who were turtured and let us pray for grace of our god JESUS CHRIST.I have no words for this,I never think that this type of tortures will takes place. Let us pray to JESUS CHRIST.

    • Grandmere

      Thank you. We are praying for our brothers and sisters in India.

  • Vance Wine

    You say many people could have stopped this, but haven’t. We are Soldiers and we are locked down to follow a contract we signed MANY years before Oboma was in office. If we just leave, we will go to prison. From the prison Cell there is nothing we can do to help. However, as a civilian, there are 1000 ways to help, but unfortunately you are all tied to your internet feeding the medias needs by commenting here and sharing their stories. Peshmerga FRAME is an organization where westerns can go there and personally do their part. My friends who got out are doing their part, I get out soon and will be going to do my part, there are 55 year old americans there now doing their part. Keep making comments… saying no one is doing nothing (as you sit there… doing nothing..)

    • Jeff Benton

      Good morning Vance,
      I stopped in here real quick to see if you had come back with an answer as to whether or not you were ready to, and had the means to, get us and all the equipment we need over to fight ISIS… I see no reply as yet… And looking at your profile, I see that this is the only post you have made… Ever… So I am inclined to think that it may be YOU who are the one that is doing nothing… Except maybe being paid to create accounts and hound people with Christian values…
      Prove me wrong brother… I would gladly and with joy, love for you to prove me to be wrong about that…
      Well I’m off… I have to figure out how to fix a fence line with out any money and with out the right tools and lumber for the job…
      I’ll check back in a day or 3 and see if you are full of it, or are serious about going to fight ISIS…
      Later Tater…
      God bless…
