News and views Wednesday, 7th of October 2015: ISIS sliced off 12-year-old Syrian boy’s fingertips in front of his father and other Christians in failed bid to convert them to Islam

ISIS militants sliced off the fingertips of 12-year-old boy in a bid to convert a group of Syrian Christians to Islam – but when they refused the terrorists executed all 12 people.

The unnamed boy’s fingertips were hacked off because he was the son of a Syrian Christian ministry team leader who, along with the rest of the group, refused to renounce his faith.

The Gospel Herald reports one woman shouted out ‘Jesus’ moments before she and others were beheaded by the terror group.

The unnamed boy’s fingertips were hacked off because he was the son of a Syrian Christian ministry team leader who, along with the rest of the group, refused to renounce his faith.

Christian Aid Mission, a humanitarian group which assists Christian workers in their native countries, reports that the horrific murders took place on August 28 in an unnamed village outside Aleppo, in Syria.

Relatives of those killed said on August 7 ISIS militants captured the Christian workers in their village .

The Mission reports on August 28 the militants asked the group if they had renounced Islam for Christianity, and when the Christians confirmed that they had, the rebels asked if they wanted to return to Islam.

When the Christians said they would not renounce their Christianity, and in front of a large crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the 12-year-old boy and beat him, and told his father they would stop the torture if he returned to Islam.

When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers before all three men and the boy were crucified.

The group died beside signs the ISIS militants had put up identifying them as ‘infidels.

On the same day eight other Christians from the village, including two women, were taken to another site and were asked the same questions before a crowd. 

The two women, who were aged 29 and 33, were then reportedly raped by the extremists in front of the crowd before all eight were beheaded.

Christian Aid reports that as the two women and six men knelt before they were beheaded, they were all praying loudly.

After they were beheaded, their bodies were hung on crosses.

Patrick Sookhdeo, founder of Barnabas Fund, a charity which seeks to help Syrian Christians, told the Daily Express: ‘It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under – I think we are dealing with a group which makes Nazism pale in comparison and I think they have lost all respect for human life.

‘Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law.

‘For them what they are doing is perfectly normal and they don’t see a problem with it. It is that religious justification which is so appalling.’

Appears to be that Islamic state have been reading their Koran recently! They’re doing exactly as is commanded in their doctrine of death, an example would be striking off the fingertips of their enemies:

“When your Lord inspired to the angels, ‘I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.’” (Qur’an 8:12)

Moreover, they’re ordered by their false god through Mohammad to seize and murder unbelievers for refusing to convert, similarly Islamic state fighters did so to the father in the above article:

“They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

Even their rape of captives, just like how they repeatedly raped these Christian women, is sanctioned by Islam:

“And all married women are forbidden unto you save those captives whom your right hand possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. (Qur’an 4:24)

Crucifixion too is mentioned as a method by which Muslims might intimidate and punish Christians and others who refuse to convert to Mohammad’s political movement:

“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.” (Qur’an 5:33)

Why isn’t so sickening an attack being properly highlighted in the mainstream media? Since no major media channels in the UK are giving daylight to the story, rather they’re droning on about jewellery robbers and the unfortunate death of a lone police officer in a hit and run. I suppose there’s only so much Muslim mayhem these largely Anti-Christian organizations are prepared to disseminate. Nevertheless, in the book of Revelations we read how these events shouldn’t break us or drive people to disrepair, rather we can face them and tell people in our lives the truth about Jesus and Islam because death isn’t the end. Those Christian martyrs, real martyrs (not lunatics who fly planes into buildings) were murdered and crowned as heroes, and their fate had long been foreseen by their Lord Jesus Christ:

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. 

I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Revelations 20:1-6)

Islamic state are in the hands of Russian military might, which shows how sad and pathetic their supposed state truly is, whereas in many cases their dead have been gifted a crown of life. So although Muslims may hate their movement and numbers being the result of a transparent liar, and Mohammad may have hated the truth and unalterable victory of Jesus over sin and death:

Narrated by Abu Huraira Allah’s Apostle said, “The most awful name in Allah’s sight on the Day of Resurrection, will be (that of) a man calling himself Malik Al-Amlak (the king of kings).” (Volume 8, book 73, number 224)

Narrated by Abu Huraira The Prophet said, “The most awful (meanest) name in Allah’s sight.” Sufyan said more than once, “The most awful (meanest) name in Allah’s sight is (that of) a man calling himself king of kings.” Sufyan said, “Somebody else (i.e. other than Abu Az-Zinad, a sub-narrator) says: What is meant by ‘The king of kings’ is ‘Shahan Shah.” (Volume 8, Book 73, Number 225)

They and their false prophet are stuck with one another and a shared fate, meaning they’re truly dead in their sins and their victims alive forever:

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (Revelation 19:11-16)
