Lots of liberals hate accusing Muslims of any sort of religious wrong-doing, claiming it’s all political or social, or worse yet, that even thinking Islam could ever be in the wrong is just racist. However, in every story I present, even those that might have a political component, religion always plays into it. That’s because Islam isn’t limited to just religion, it is a social and political system as well, the Qur’an details how governments should operate, how social systems should work and how people should worship and believe. That’s why so many of these ISIS stories come up, because the real motivation behind these horrors is Islamic belief, not secular politics.
In the de-facto Islamic State capital of Raqqa, Islamic extremists have crucified a boy for taking pictures of their camp. According to reports, the boy was receiving 500 Turkish lira for every photograph he took of the terrorist base and clearly, I can understand why they’d be upset. However, they didn’t charge the boy with any political crime, he wasn’t punished as a traitor or a spy, no, the Muslim extremists branded the boy an apostate and sentenced him to death by crucifixion. The above picture was circulated on Twitter, the bruised and bloody body of the boy, bearing a sign that accused the boy of apostasy against Islam. That would be like claiming that Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for crimes against Christianity. You can’t say that and then deny religious involvement.
So there you go, yet another case of Islamic murder from those animals in the Middle East, the Islamic State. Or are we going to start claiming that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam? I wouldn’t put that past a lot of liberal apologists. Just one more thing to shake your head at on Horror Show Sunday.
