Let us never forget that Obama backs the “resistance,” the savages. Obama is arming the savages and training the savages. He wanted to militarily intervene on behalf of the jihad resistance. Think about that. He sides with Islamic jihadists every time.
The jihad opposition is not a recent or new development. I have been warning Atlas readers for well over a year that the opposition was Islamic supremacist in nature and meant to impose sharia. And this is the sharia.
I warned repeatedly that where would be a genocide of religious minorities of unimaginable proportions. And we are witnessing that, too.
And Obama is arming them. The Washington Post is spinning this, but as in all of these types of stories, the media always has Muslim reporters write them up. Always.
This is the sharia. This is Islamic law.
“Syrian extremists amputated a man’s hand and live-tweeted it” Washington Post, By Ahmed Ramadan and Liz Sly, February 28, 2014
The extremist Syrian group deemed too radical even for al-Qaeda performed what may have been a Twitter first Friday: live-tweeting the amputation of a hand.
The amputation took place in the remote rural town of Maskanah in the northern province of Aleppo, according to a series of tweets posted by the account of a supporter of the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
The first showed a photograph of a blindfolded man having his arm positioned on a table by fighters as a masked man wielding a sword waits nearby. Another man, wearing a white robe of the kind favored in Arab Gulf countries, is reading a statement. A caption states that the blindfolded man is a thief who had asked to have his hand cut off “in order to cleanse his sins.”
A third picture posted an hour later is too graphic to show here. The man appears to be passed out, with his bloodied arm and his severed hand resting on the table. Fresh slashes in the wood suggest it took four swipes of the sword to cut the hand off.
ISIS evolved from the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq, which U.S. forces battled to contain before they withdrew in 2011. The group’s attempts to impose strict interpretations of Islamic law on the parts of rebel-held northern Syria under its control have earned it many enemies.
Mainstream Free Syrian Army fighters declared war on the group in January and ejected its fighters from several locations. Earlier this month, al-Qaeda’s central command issued a statement dissociating the organization from ISIS, suggesting its methods were too harsh even for al-Qaeda to stomach. On Tuesday, al-Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra, gave ISIS an ultimatum threatening war unless ISIS submits to arbitration of its disputes with other rebels.
Under pressure, ISIS on Friday pulled out from the northern town of Azaz. A video posted on YouTube showed scenes of celebration among residents.
