Family burned alive for trying to flee ISIS held territory (July 24, 2016)

On this day in 2016, ISIS burned alive a family, including a 2-year old child, for trying to escape from the so-called Caliphate outside of Kirkuk.

Just when you think ISIS could not do something more heinous, it does

RASHAD, IRAQ – One of the funniest Onion pieces I ever read was published shortly after 9/11. For those not familiar with The Onion, it is a US-based satirical Website that has been around for sometime (I discovered it in the early 2000s myself). I do not find that everything on it tickles my funny bone but a lot does.

The piece in question was entitled “Hijackers surprised to find selves in hell” and purported to be an interview with Mohamed Atta, one of the 9/11 hijackers. The terrorist had fully expected to “spend eternity in Paradise, being fed honeyed cakes by 67 virgins in a tree-lined garden, if only I would fly the airplane into one of the Twin Towers.” Instead, he was “forced to suckle from the 16 poisoned leathern teats of Gophahmet, Whore of Betrayal, until he burst from an unwholesome engorgement of curdled bile.”

I am fed the boiling feces of traitors by malicious, laughing Ifrit. Is this to be my reward for destroying the enemies of my faith?

This may not be your form of humour but I find this hilarious. The terrorists who were responsible for the deaths of almost 3,000 people were in turn tortured for the remainder of all time instead of being rewarded with an honoured place in Paradise.

Mr. Atta faced other trials and tribulations such as being skewered from eye socket to bunghole and then placed on a spit so that his flesh could be roasted by the searing gale of flatus which issues forth from the haunches of Asmoday, being hollowed out and used as prophylactics by thorn-cocked Gulbuth The Rampant, and having his flesh melted from his bones like wax in the burning embrace of the Mother of Cowards.

All horrible ways to die (or not die in their case).

The terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) was also behind some disgusting ways of killing people in its so-called ‘Caliphate’. It seemed to relish in seeing its victims die in the most horrible way possible. Today’s featured attack is a good example.

On this day in 2016 ISIS burned alive a family of three (father, mother and a two-year-old girl) who were trying to escape from the organization’s grip southwest of Kirkuk. Let me repeat that: ISIS barbecued a family, including a two-year old baby, who wanted to get out of the Caliphate.

There are no words in any language to truly describe this act of barbarism. Alas, it was typical of this terrorist group. It is hard to see any argument calling for giving these monsters their day in court, as some are arguing,

If there is a hell, I am sure there is a special place for ISIS terrorists. Maybe their entrails will be wound onto a stick and fed to the toothless, foul-breathed swine of Gehenna.
