As the power of ISIS declines and they retreat, they are taking no prisoners. According to a recent source, ISIS has been setting oil wells on fire and then throwing POWs into them while still alive, horribly cooking them to death in the burning oil:
It has emerged that ISIS are not just burning oil pits to obscure war planes as they prepare for a bloody showdown with Iraqi forces – they are also using them to FRY their own men, it has been alleged.
It appears militants who chickened out at the last minute in Mosul are facing a far worse fate as the terror cult refuses to take any prisoners.
It has killed at least nine of its own for fleeing the battles, according to state media.
The men were hurled into trenches full of burning oil while still alive.
Al Sumaria News stated: “ISIS terrorist gangs executed nine of its members for fleeing the battle against the security forces in Mosul, by throwing them in trenches containing a burning oil, after tying their hands and legs.”
The trenches are also part of a plot to foil Iraqi troops and coalition forces – rumoured to include UK special forces – who are gaining ground. (source)
This is a horrible way to die. However, as we have extensively documented, ISIS has placed others to death through ritualistic slaughter, tortured small children to death, tortured animals for sport, and participated in cannibalism. Therefore, this is sadly not unexpected. It is a visual to and the end product of Islamic theology, which denies the intrinsic dignity of the human person and allows Muslims to abuse others without limits.
The the way of the cross leads to death of the self and life eternal. It way of Islam leads to the death of others and eventually, death to the individual eternally.
