While most Islamic terrorists are quite clever (and we should never ever discount them), some are flat-out Darwin Award winners. Such as these jihadis, in the story below. By the way, I learned a new euphemism for Islamic terrorist–“radical anti-government fighter” (yup, just like George Washington, right?). File under “So Sad, Too Bad,” and remember that these are the “liberal democrats” our CIA is advising and whom Obama and John McCain want to aid even more actively. Also remember the key point here: THIS. IS. ISLAM . . .
Radical anti-government fighters in Syria mistakenly beheaded a wounded fellow rebel soldier after assuming he was a supporter of President Bashar al-Assad, according to an online statement from the radical fighters’ group. A separate online video showed a gruesome display of radical fighters holding what appeared to be the victim’s head. After the beheading earlier this week, the victim was determined to be Mohammed Fares, an anti-government fighter wounded in clashes against the Syrian Army earlier, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
On Thursday, an online statement from a spokesman for the al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), whose fighters apparently carried out the beheading of Fares, called for forgiveness for the killers and asked for “restraint and piety” from anti-government supporters.
Restraint? Hilarious. Savage Muslim beheaders calling for restraint. Now, I’ve heard everything. It’s like Anthony Weiner or Rob Ford calling for discretion.
“We call on God to accept Mohammed Fares into his Kingdom and to forgive his brothers that sought to rid us of the enemies of God and our enemies,” Omar Al-Qahatani said in Arabic in the ISIS statement. Fares apparently shouted the names of two revered figures in Shiite Islam when he arrived wounded in a makeshift hospital, prompting the overwhelmingly Sunni opposition to assume he was a government fighter, Al-Qahatani added in the statement. In the separate online video, two fighters from ISIS are seen displaying what appears to be the decapitated head of a bearded man to a crowd in Syria’s commercial capital of Aleppo.
“He is an Iraqi Shiite volunteer fighter in Bashar al-Assad’s army,” a young man brandishing a knife in one hand and holding the decapitated head in another says in Arabic to a group of men all dressed in black. “If they (al-Assad’s army) enter they will not distinguish between supporters and opponents. I swear they will rape the men before the woman,” another jihadi fighter continues in the amateur video. . . .
Human rights groups and some member of the Syrian opposition have condemned what they deem barbaric actions by ISIS including the alleged execution of wounded government soldiers, the shooting of a 15-year-old boy for blasphemy, and public flogging of women for behavior deemed to violate Sharia law.
This is the group we want to take Syria over from Assad. Splendid. Not that any of this savagery is news to any of us. I’ve been posting stuff like this about these “enlightened humanitarians” ever since this civil war in Syria began.
Exit question: when it’s done with bullets it’s “friendly fire,” so do you call this “friendly beheading”?
Put this in the Al-Qaeda “Best Practices” handbook. One down, and sadly many more where he came from.
