ISIS Beheads Man for Witchcraft But Hey… The Crusades
Before you go getting on your high horse about this, I’ll just remind you that Europe burned people at the stake for witchcraft almost a thousand years ago and people in Massachusetts were hanged for the same crime almost 500 years ago.
ISIS behead man… for WITCHCRAFT: Barbaric execution for ‘invoking magic’ plunges Middle East further into the Dark Ages
Militants fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have publicly beheaded a man for allegedly practicing witchcraft – the latest in a long line of barbaric executions carried out by the terror group.
The unknown man was photographed being killed by a masked executioner in a village just outside ISIS’ stronghold and de facto capital Raqqa while a large crowd looked on.
Precise details of the victim’s so-called crime are not known, but the charge of witchcraft and ‘invoking magic’, and the use of an axe and wooden chopping block to carry out the beheading do little to counter claims that ISIS are little more than murderers with a Dark Age view of the world.
Next up, executions for suggesting the Earth is round and revolves around the Sun.
