ISIS Declares War On 'The Cross': 21 Christians Beheaded in Barbaric New Video from the Islamic State
In a new video released by Daesh's propaganda arm Al-Hayat Media, the jihadists show how they really feel about Christianity.
While it's unclear how they kidnapped 21 Egyptian Christians, an alliance with the Egyptian terror group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, might have something to do with it.
Due to the graphic nature of some of the footage, IJReview has blacked out twenty two seconds of the images within the video.
In the video, the Christians are marched down a beach by ISIS terrorists clad-in-black with their victims donning orange jumpsuits.
While most ISIS execution videos are believed to have been filmed in Syria or Iraq, this video has been allegedly shot off the Mediterranean Coast in Libya.
First, the Christians are forced to their knees. Then, the spokesperson for the terrorists holds up his knife, declaring:
“Today, are on the south of Rome, on the land of Islam, Libya, sending another message. Oh crusaders, safety for you will be only wishes.”
“Especially when you're fighting us all together, therefore we will fight you all together. Until the war lays down its burdens, and Jesus, peace be upon him will descend breaking the cross.”
The spokesperson explains that because Bin Laden's body was tossed out to ocean, they will spill crusaders' blood in the sea as well. One unidentified Christian in the video is seen praying before he's murdered.
Following the beheading, the spokesperson appears again, saying:
“We will conquer Rome.”
Clearly, the brutality of the Islamic State doesn't have a stopping point. As every week passes they continue racking up atrocities. With every passing day the brutality of the Islamic State is emboldened and there is no reason to believe the atrocities will subside.
Until a strategy is put together to crush their fighters both physically and mentally, ISIS will remain a threat to the civilized world.
