Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)
The world saw in September the horror in late August when ISIS terrorists captured hundreds of Syrian soldiers, stripped them down to their underwear, trucked them out into the desert, marched them to a ditch and slaughtered them. In this video while ISIS included some of this old footage in the end, the beginning shows the terrorists using hundreds of fully dressed Syrian POWs released to run across empty fields in which they mowed down hundreds of these soldiers using them for target practice while making sure everyone is killed. The caption sarcastically says “ISIS mowing down Syrian soldiers like birds”:
The video is released to make-believe that this was carried out during combat as an infomertial to energize its base and recruits showing them how easy it is to fight making believe that the enemy simply runs in the open while ISIS goes for a hunt.
But as it seems, these are POWs. While the old footage shows that ISIS murdered hundreds of POWs in their underwear which was also included, this reveals what happened to hundreds others who were simply used for their propaganda. The reason ISIS blurred the men dressed in underwear was not for respect to the victims privacy. ISIS considers even men seen in underwear as sexual temptation emphasizing that blurring the semi-naked men shows ISIS’s high standard for moral values. In Islam, men are not allowed to have shorts since their hips constitutes nakedness under Shariah law and could cause a temptation for other men and is why men are required to cover their naval down to the knees. (see reference below from Islam Question and Answer)
While the killing is not considered a sin, the men’s thighs is.
People always ask as to why ISIS kills in such cold blood?
The answer to this is simple. As I grew up under Islam, it has many stories in which the cruelty is covered by a sudden shift to a different subject. Example from the Hadith show this:
Bukhari (84:58) – “There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu’adh asked, ‘Who is this (man)?’ Abu Muisa said, ‘He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.’ Then Abu Muisa requested Mu’adh to sit down but Mu’adh said, ‘I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.’ Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, ‘Then we discussed the night prayers‘”
Do you see “Abu Musa added, “Then we discussed the night prayers”?
When we were in school studying Islam, it is expected that when one reads the story to be first struck with the cruelty of killing an old fettered man, but the teacher would suddenly brush through the killing part and immediately transfer into the more important theological subject which is “night prayers”. This urges the student to think that prayer is more important to Allah than killing an old Jew which Islam demands he is to be killed while smiling.
Even the beheading part is supposed to be done with pleasure as one sees this imam saying that a Muslim is to “enjoy” (see 1:00-1:-05):
Its not the beheading that the students in this mosque are to focus on, but the methodology (slicing instead of chopping) and the pleasure since they are taught as if beheading provides an orgasmic pleasure.
The Bible warned of these days. When the world thinks that the Bible was kidding, they need to understand, that the Bible discloses only some of the brutality. The reality is much worse which includes the type of sickness only seen in horror films.
But even horror films is becoming reality. Apocalypto shows a similar footage on what we see ISIS do:
But the Aztec was no fiction, it was a reality. And as many criticize Cortez’s conquests of Mexico, today they criticize the Crusaders against Islam.
I get a litany of comments criticizing us saying “just talk about Islam and STOP all the talk of Christian militarism and self-defense”.
And we respond: the ignorant will be the first to call for a Crusade and even an Inquisition, but this will only happen when they themselves are under threat. The sick do not care about fighting a sickness, they simply critique because they are part of a disease.
Such disease plagues this culture, especially in churches.
On Islam Question and Answer, the Sharia ruling is given in what Islam calls Awrah (nakedness):
“The ‘awrah of a man is the area between the navel and the knee; as for the navel and the knee themselves, they are not part of the ‘awrah. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said: There are several opinions concerning the matter: One is that the knee is included in the ‘awrah so it must be covered. The second opinion is that the navel and the knee are both part of the ‘awrah so they must both be covered. The third opinion – which is the well-known view among our madhhab – is that the navel and the knee are not included in the ‘awrah, so they do not have to be covered. This is based on the definition of the ‘awrah as being “between the navel and the knee.” End quote from ash-Sharh al-Mumti‘, 2/160 He also said (may Allah have mercy on him): The ‘awrah for a man is the area between the navel and the knee. End quote from ash-Sharh al-Mumti‘, 5/273 An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Concerning the ‘awrah for men, there are five opinions; the correct view is that it is the area between the navel and the knee, and the navel and the knee are not part of the ‘awrah. Our evidence for that is what we have quoted above from Abu’d-Darda’ (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I was sitting with the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) when Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) came, holding up the hem of his garment to such an extent that his knees showed. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Your companion has had a quarrel.” And he quoted the hadeeth. Narrated by al-Bukhaari. It was narrated from Abu Moosa (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was sitting in a place where there was water and his knee or knees were uncovered, then when ‘Uthmaan came in, he covered them. Narrated by al-Bukhaari. And we have quoted above hadeeths which speak of the thigh being ‘awrah. End quote from Sharh al-Muhadhdhab, 3/174, 175 For the rest of the evidence please see the answer to question no. 34976 And he said in ash-Sharh al-Kabeer, 1/457: The navel and the knees are not part of the ‘awrah. This is the view of Maalik and ash-Shaafa‘i. End quote. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said: It is not permissible for a young man to play football, for example, wearing only shorts that do not reach the knees or that do not reach the navel. It is essential that the area between the navel and the knee be covered in the case of young men.End quote from Liqa’ al-Baab al-Maftooh, no. 73 Based on that, it is permissible to go to the sea wearing clothing that covers the area between the navel and the knee. But if it leaves any part of the thigh or anything lower than the navel uncovered, that is not permissible. But if that is in a place where there is mixing, it is not permissible because that involves staying in a place where evil actions are being committed when one is not able to change them or denounce them. And Allah knows best.”
