In another act of barbarism, ISIS took five men accused of being spies, cut their heads off, and then put their heads on spikes while warning Christians that this is an example for what they are going to do to them:
According to the British-based watchdog Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the lead executioner declares that IS is coming for Christians and threatens to behead all spies.
“We tell you O Crusaders, that we are coming, inevitably, God willing,” the executioner said, according to the translation by SOHR. “As for you, agents of the Crusaders and eyes of apostates — O you who are sitting among Muslims — we say to you that our bayonets are hungry for your blood. So, we will not leave an eye spying on Muslims without gouging it out, nor a head for one of your spies without tearing it out as a victory for the religion of Allah and defending it.”
After the speech from the lead executioner, the prisoners are then pushed the ground and beheaded with knives. After four of the men were beheaded, the jihadis stuck their severed heads on metal spikes.
After sticking the four heads on spikes, the fifth prisoner was decapitated.
Instead of the fifth prisoner’s head being placed on a spike, the executioner picks up his head and tosses it on the ground in front of him in a disrespectful fashion.
Hearing these words reminds me of an important lesson, and that is the inability for Islam to live in peace with people who are not Muslims, especially Christians. While not all Muslims are ISIS or ISIS supporters, and while it is true that men of any group can do evil deeds, Islam gives moral license and even praise to inherently immoral acts. As such, there is no way to peacefully co-exist with Islam, since all it takes is a mere act of the will- a choice made on behalf of the believer- to go from being a kind and good neighbor to a murderer who will think nothing of slitting your throat and putting your head on a spike and think nothing wrong with it.
Accept or reject this lesson at your own peril.
