Dangling Dead Bodies at City Entrance, Child Parading Head Through Streets Show ISIS’ Barbarity

ISISHAWIJA, Iraq — The Islamic group ISIS, which identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has released photographs of eight deceased persons suspended from the entrance to an Iraqi city, months after an image surfaced online of a child parading a severed head through the streets, demonstrating the ongoing barbarity of the Muslim jihadist group.

The gruesome photographs are believed to be from the city of Hawija, and show the men hanging upside down from a metal structure at the entrance of the city. An Islamic State flag is displayed on the top of the structure, under which a number of vehicles appear to be driving in and out of the city, as several onlookers gather to observe the spectacle.

While it is not known who the eight persons are who were killed and hung upside down, some of them appear to be wearing fatigues and therefore may be members of the Iraqi military.

ISIS fighter Abu Al-Rahman is seen posing in one of the photographs in front of a dead body, and holding up his index finger, which according to the Council on Foreign Relations, refers back to the tawhid and the Islamic belief that “[t]here is no god but Allah [and] Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

The incident, occurring in a largely Sunni Muslim city, is believed to be the same location where a number of captives dressed in orange jumpsuits were paraded through the streets in cages last month. The cages had been loaded on to the backs of trucks, and crowds gathered as the vehicles passed to taunt and mock those that had been captured. ISIS fighters stood next to the cages, some holding ISIS flags or armed with weaponry.

ChildReports state that ISIS is likely seeking to make Hawija its new operational base.

But not only are this week’s photographs of deceased inverted captives causing much horror online, but also a photo released last summer by ISIS that shows a child holding an adult severed head. A number of youth are surrounding the boy, and one adult male appears to be holding a cell phone to record the child as he marches through the street with the head.

“This is how the cubs of the Caliphate are raised up,” the text that accompanied the photograph read.

The photograph is not the first demonstrating children holding severed heads. Additionally, as previously reported, a video released late last month showed terrorist organization training children as young a five years old to fight for Allah.

The nine-minute video shows young boys wearing fatigues and black bandanas with the ISIS ignsignia lined up in rows for their training. They mimick exercises performed by the instructor and chant back responses, including “Allah Ahkbar”, meaning “Allah is the greatest.”

According to reports, the video was filmed at the Al Farouq Institute for Cubs in Raqqa, Syria, and is stated to represent the “next generation” of ISIS fighters. In addition to performing exercises, children recite verses from the Koran and bow to the ground in prayer with their instructor, who sits adjacent to a pair of guns.

    ISIS claim to be islamic, but numerous other islamic groups and nations have denounced them as they are not true muslims. Besides has christianity not had it’s fair share of genocide and murder?

    • Deedee Keith

      Are Christians killing people now, get over the past jack ass..in that case white man where is the black peoples 40 acres and a mule…schmuck

    • Michael Eade

      And on a sidenote, a caliphate can only be formed with consent from other muslim groups and nations, it is by all rights a democracy, and the last caliphate ended around 1924.

      Other islamic nations have given them a resounding NO to the caliphate, so they can preach it all they want they will NEVER be a caliphate and they will never have a caliph.

      • bosco916

        Who cares what numerous other liars groups say. Open the Qur’an and read for yourself. To understand Islam, you have to learn about Muhammad from the hadith and sira: biographies of Muhammad. You can’t only read the Qur’an because there were two Qur’ans made: the early one (religious) made in Mecca and the late one (political) made in Medina…. That is everything Islam, anything else simply is not Islam. Now, go learn please and stop listening to liars.

      Muslims are supposed to follow Muhammad: a blood thirsty warlord. Christians are supposed to follow Jesus Christ: The Son of God, our Savior.

      ISIS is purely Islamic, unfortunately. Muslims who don’t do as they do might as well be “lukewarm” Muslims. But it is in their doctrine to subjugate and/or murder the Kafir (non-muslims). Please, with your default leftist comments.

      • cheryl

        No Christian has ever slaughtered people in the name of their religion. Islam and Christianity are like night and day. I wish people ignorant and naive people would refrain from commenting.

        • Roz F

          And what were the crusades?

          • JCIL

            Jesus never said to go out into the world and kill anyone who doesn’t receive the Gospel. All of the evil perpetrated by Christians was done by their own sinful nature.

            Christians do have the right to defend themselves against tyranny.

          • Lesli Spice

            Are we supposed to now say it is okay for ISIS because it is their turn? Is Christianity today supposed to be condemned like ISIS for mistakes made centuries ago? Jesus Christ came to this earth and paid the penalty for sin for those who accept him and he was resurrected before hundreds of witnesses. What about the Christians who were fed to the lions? What about the Christians being held in jails now and killed by ISIS for their faith? Your reasoning is polluted.

          • And what about them? They happened over 900 years ago! Most likely YOUR ancestors were involved in them too! GET OVER IT!

          • cheryl

            The Crusades were started after millions of people had been slaughtered by Muslims for many years. Finally people started to push back and defend themselves. It had nothing to do with religion. Christianity, unlike Islam does not teach to kill those that don’t believe. Does not teach that killing gets you into heaven! In fact, Jesus saw and told us about this day. he said there would come a time when those who kill you think they are doing God a service! We are there.

          • ter ber

            Amen! Cheryl. The Muslims really do not know who they are worshipping and how really dangerous he is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFn042VA-VA

        • Michael Eade

          KKK, The inquisition, Crusades, The Holocaust, need i go on? Read the bible it gives you hundreds of reasons to kill people.

          • Roz F

            Or is ignorance bliss as they say lol

          • Michael Eade

            Indeed, ignorance is bliss, but i digress, yes i am atheist no i am not stopping anyone from following their religions or doctrines, i have friends that are muslim, atheist, christian, buddhist hell i even know satanists, so long as people do not try to impact the happiness of others.

          • Paul Durant

            Good morning Michael. In a response to your question …. all of those things were carried out by the Roman Catholic Church which is a Babylonian cult and killing machine. That organization is by no means biblical by definition. It has hidden behind Biblical Christianity or masqueraded as Christian for 2000 years. Most of the people on these boards are shamefully ignorant when it comes to history. Christs true church resides outside the walls of any true organization and has for 2000 years. The Bible is inspired by Yaweh and records the good and evil of mankind’s 4000 years plus of history. There are a couple of instances where God instructs Israel to destroy entire cities of people. This is due to the fallen state of those residing there. In those places it was kill or be killed. The humans had become nonredeemable animals similar to those pictured above. They were wicked and tormenting all living creatures. These same circumstances existed before the great flood. The Bible says violence covered the whole earth ….Have a good day Michael.

          • Michael Eade

            They would say the same about you if they had their way, besides, the catholic church is not the only entity guilty of genocide, the protestant church played it’s part in killing innocent people,

            And as for god “instructing” he “instructs” people to do alot of killing, i advise you take your bible and read it properly instead of skimming for the parts where he is kind and all knowing and look to see when he shows himself to be the evil rapist murderer that he is.

          • Aelialicinia

            M. Eade – You seem to have your “facts” all wrong. 100 percent very wrong. Did you make them up yourslef or were you indoctrinated in some bizarre lieberal arts college?

          • Meagan Schaeffer Jung

            I do not mean this in a mean way at all. But the term Christian means follower of Christ. And as someone who does read the Bible I can tell you do not. The Bible does not tell anyone to kill. If fact it tells you the complete opposite. And as for religion, we are all religious since religion is just the set of values and beliefs we choose to follow. Atheists, agnostics, evolutionists are as religious as the pope just they choose to believe in random chance and pointless and purposeless existence instead of a Divine Creator who loves us and has a purpose for our life. We all believe in something we all choose a religion.

          • Michael Eade

            Try reading the bible, and properly do not skim it so you avoid the worse parts, for example:

            Those who bear bad fruit will be cut down and burned “with unquenchable fire.” 3:10, 12

          • Stefan Moldovan

            First of all, you are the most idiotic person on the planet and nothing more than an ignorant leftist to say the holocaust was a Christian act. Adolf Hitler clearly said that Christianity was a disease and it must be stopped. Not to mention, the crusades and Inquisition was not only long ago and should be left alone, need I mention the children’s crusade, where christianity made their children march for piece to Jeruslaem, only to have these unarmed, weak children killed by trained muslim warriors. Give me one verse where it says in the bible to kill others. I remember Jesus saying “He who is without sin, cast the first stone” and “if your enemy strikes your right cheek, turn him the other also” and “love your enemy, for love is greater than hate”. Whereas muhammed was a pedophile as well as a murderer and said “kill the unbeliever wherever they hide, for lack of faith is worse than killing” (book of sura, quaran, not sure what verse”. The muslims who dont do what ISIS does are lukewarm, not true followers, and the redneck dissapointments in the KKK who cant even read their own bible (else they would see how much jesus hates violence) they will go to hell, as they are not true Christians. I guarantee you the whitch burners and crusaders are in hell, for working against their god, who teaches love, peace and acceptance, and that revenge is not an option, and that you didn’t give anyone life, thereofore you have no right to take it. These poor excuse of humans, these muslims are evil. If they claim they are not, clearly they need to better read the Quaran.


          • Michael Eade

            Hitler was far from opposed to christianity, he was in fact a vocal christian, he was born into a catholic mother and was raised and baptised catholic, saying otherwise is stupid.

            And i see you are a typical right wing christian willing to “forget” the past, forget that christians committed terrible acts in the name of some malicious deity, if you forget or leave these acts alone as you say people will be doomed to repeat them.

            And i agree jesus was a man of peace, he was the first and last true christian, the bible says love thy neighbor then it gives you numerous reasons to hate people, do not forget the Bible was written by humans not god.

            Oh and if you are still in doubt about Adolf Hitler:

            “My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was his fight against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross. As
            a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice… And if there is. Anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly, it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people. And when I look on my people I see them work and work and toil and labor, and at the end of the week they have only for their wages wretchedness and misery. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people are plundered and exposed.” – [Adolf Hitler, speech in Munich on April 12, 1922, countering a political opponent, Count Lerchenfeld, who opposed antisemitism on his personal Christian feelings. Published in “My New Order”, quoted in Freethought Today April 1990]

            “I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.”

            [Adolph Hitler, _Mein Kampf_, pp. 46]

          • Aelialicinia

            Hitler was into satanism like you.

          • Nathaniel Villarreal

            Catholics are not true christians lol just like mormons are not christians nor jehovahs witness…christians should be identified with those that believe Jesus is the single only way to heaven…repenting from sin and believing the bible is the infallible word of God and there are no extra lost biblical books that needed to be added to the bible…sorry to burst people bubble and I understand people would have a reason to why these things are done but those things dont line up with the bible

            Ignorant hateful remarks.

          • Michael Eade

            I am far from hateful, i got nothing against religion i just prefer for people not to use their religion to harm others as countless christians have done for over a thousand years.

            Besides hitler was not a satanist, he was actually a very devout christian.

          • Rob Simpson

            who had a few issues with Jews and Blacks and the British, Poland US..etc etc

          • Michael Eade

            Few issues eh? If he had few issues with them why massacre the Jewish people invade Poland and bomb Britain?

        • Guest

          And what were the Crusades?

      • Michael Eade

        Jesus Christ was a jewish carpenter, and was the first and last true christian to ever exist, after that christians have followed the billshit in the bible, a book that promotes, rape, murder, genocide and slavery, the bible gives countless reasons to kill.
