Is the enemy of my enemy my friend?
Not if you consider what Shia militiamen did to a nameless Iraqi boy, about nine years old, suspected of being an ISIS sympathizer. The men who captured him think that he shot at them, a charge he denies:
“By God, I did not fire one single bullet!”
For a few moments, it seems as if one fighter, who still has a shred of humanity left, will save the boy’s life. He steps in front of the captive and shouts
“What’s wrong with you? Nobody shoot!”
The execution, caught on video (caution: highly disturbing), immediately became an ISIS propaganda piece, as the two sides struggle to accuse each other of committing the worse atrocities.
