You will not have safety even in your dreams until you accept Islam. Masked ISIS murderer just before killing Christian prisoners.

ISIS released another video today. It showed masked murderers marching bound and unarmed prisoners onto a beach and beheading them. It also showed the murder of another group of prisoners by gunfire. According to reports, all of the murdered were Christians martyrs.

What is different about this video is that it directly threatens Christians in a specific manner and states that the reason for the murders is that the Christians did not convert to Islam.

From CNN:

ISIS Executes More Christians in Libya. (CNN)ISIS operatives have executed two groups of prisoners, believed to be Ethiopian Christians, in Libya, according to a video released Sunday by the terror network’s media arm.

The al-Furqan Media video — which is highly produced and titled “Until There Came to Them Clear Evidence” — shows two groups of men, one in orange jumpsuits and the other in black, being killed at different locations in Libya, according to the video’s narrator.

One group is beheaded on a beach along the Mediterranean Sea, while the other group is shot in Southern Libya, hundreds of miles away.

“All praise be to Allah, the Lord and cherisher of the world and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Mohammed. To the nation of the cross, we are back again on the sands, where the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, have stepped on before, telling you: Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap,” the narrator says in Arabic on the 39-minute video.

The narrator continues, “In fact, their blood is the purest blood because there is a nation behind them (which) inherits revenge. And we swear to Allah: the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety, even in your dreams, until you embrace Islam.”

Quoting Mohammed, the narrator says that those who “perform prayer and pay alms” will have “their blood and property” protected by the Prophet unless Islam dictates otherwise.

“You pay (tax) with willing submission, feeling yourselves subdued. Our battle is a battle between faith and blasphemy, between truth and falsehood, until there is no more polytheism — and obedience becomes Allah’s on its entirety,” the narrator says.

Earlier in the video, a different speaker says Christians in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul were given the choice to embrace Islam or maintain their Christian faith and pay a tax.

“The Islamic state has offered the Christian community this many times and set a deadline for this, but the Christians never cooperated,” the speaker says.

From New York Post:

ISIS Video Shows Execution of Ethiopian Christians  ISIS terrorists released their latest blood-drenched video on Sunday, showing the shootings and beheadings of two groups of Ethiop​i​an Christians in Libya.

“You will not have safety even in your dreams until you accept Islam,” says a masked fighter with a pistol, who insists Christians must convert to Islam or pay a tax prescribed by the Quran.

“Our battle is a battle between faith and blasphemy, between truth and falsehood.”

Earlier in the video, a different speaker says Christians in Mosul, Iraq, were given the choice of embracing Islam or paying a tax.

“The Islamic State has offered the Christian community this many times and set a deadline for this, but the Christians never cooperated,” the speaker says.

So victims were then rounded up to pay the ultimate price, being executed by gunfire in a desert and by beheadings on a beach, the video shows.

The sickening propaganda video was released almost exactly two months after 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians were beheaded by extremists.

In the latest recorded executions, about 12 victims appear to have been lined up and shot to death in the desert. Another 16 appear to have been massacred on the beach.

From AllAfrica:

Ethiopia Announces Three Days of National Mourning for Its Citizens Killed by IS  Ethiopian government spokesperson Redwan Hussien said the country will observe three days of national mourning for 28 Ethiopian Christians killed by Islamic State militants in Libya and three of its nationals killed in South Africa following wave of xenophobic attack against African migrant workers.

From Miami HeraldVideo: Islamic State Kils Ethiopian Christians in Libya. 

Islamic State militants in Libya shot and beheaded groups of captive Ethiopian Christians, a video purportedly from the extremists showed Sunday. The attack widens the circle of nations affected by the group’s atrocities while showing its growth beyond a self-declared “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq.

The release of the 29-minute video comes a day after Afghanistan’s president blamed the extremists for a suicide attack in his country that killed at least 35 people – and underscores the chaos gripping Libya after its 2011 civil war and the killing of dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

It also mirrored a film released in February showing militants beheading 21 captured Egyptian Christians on a Libyan beach, which immediately drew Egyptian airstrikes on the group’s suspected positions in Libya. Whether Ethiopia would – or could – respond with similar military force remains unclear.

The video starts with what it called a history of Christian-Muslim relations, followed by scenes of militants destroying churches, graves and icons. A masked fighter brandishing a pistol delivers a long statement, saying Christians must convert to Islam or pay a special tax prescribed by the Quran.

It shows one group of captives, identified as Ethiopian Christians, purportedly held by an Islamic State affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barqa Province. It also shows another purportedly held by an affiliate in the southern Libyan calling itself the Fazzan Province. The video then switches between footage of the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach. It was not immediately possible to estimate how many captives were killed or confirm their identities.

  1. This won’t stop until somehow ISIS is stopped. How long that is going to take is anyone’s guess. IMO,this is similar (but perhaps not as totally organized) as the attempt to exterminate all the Jews in WWII. Of course there have been other groups (tribal, indigenous etc.) that have faced extermination over years and years past and into the present.

  2. When I hear of such events, I wonder whether it would be worse to be the perpetrator or the victim. Given a choice, I would prefer not to be the perpetrator. Cain suffered more than Abel.

  3. I know that no one is supposed to critique another religion these days–especially the “religion of peace”. We have been told it is virtually a sin to be an “Islamophobe” But are we sacrificing truth on the altar of political (or religious) correctness. From Boston to Nigeria to Ethiopia to Libya to Egypt and on and on Islam has become a nurturing ground for unspeakable bloodshed and violence. Such violence does not grow in a vacuum. Yet we are supposed to look the other way as our brother and sister Christians from the youngest child are terrorized and brutalized by groups which self-identify and brag about their Moslem faith.

  4. “You will not have safety even in your dreams until you accept Islam”

    This line has me thinking…little do they know what awaits them if they do not wake up from their slumber of murderous rampage. The devil is just salivating at the prospect of more lost to feed his reign and his ego of terror. His time and theirs is temporary since we already know who will crush his/their head.

    Let’s keep hoping against hope for that time to come soon.

    “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
