The outrage is always directed at my colleagues and me. The outrage is never directed at the devout Muslims waging war in the cause of Islam. It is never directed at the quranic texts and teachings that command jihad. It is never directed at the enemy — just those of us with the courage to fight it.
ISIS militants execute, crucify Syrian media activist in Aleppo, Aranews, October 18, 2014
Activists from the city of al-Bab published pictures of Abdullah al-Bushi, 17, crucified in the city near Mansheya roundabout, with a board placed on his chest reading his name, saying “guilty of filming IS headquarters in al-Bab for the amount of 500 Turkish lira”.
According to the IS if the offender is sentenced for apostasy, the charged must be publicly executed and crucified for three days in public.
This boy has been crucified for taking photos of Isis military bases …
Isis fighters ‘crucify’ 17-year-old boy in Syria,” The Independent, October 17, 2014 (thanks to Christian)
The boy’s body has been left on display in Al-Bab
Pictures being shared online show a banner attached to the teenager’s chest saying the boy has been crucified for taking photos of Isis military bases, as well as receiving “500 Turkish lira” for any footage taken.
The message describes the ruling for the alleged crime as “apostasy” and states the teenager has been “killed and crucified for a period of three days” as the punishment.
The alleged execution comes after it emerged Isis militants had beheaded their own fighters for spying and espionage.
It is not known who took the picture, which was circulated across social media by some Isis supporters on Friday.
Charlie Winter, Programs Officer at counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation, said crucifixion is a prescribed punishment meted out by Isis for specific crimes.
He told The Independent: “Crucifixion has been used many times before – it’s an age-old punishment dealt out to people who have committed treason.”
