An accused thief has had his right hand cut off with a meat cleaver in the ISIS ‘capital’ of Raqqa as punishment for his crime.
The photos, which all have identical captions in Arabic, say that it shows the ‘implementation of the punishment of a thief from Raqqa city’.
Surrounded by up to 50 men and boys and held in place by two ISIS enforcers, the man is forced to his knees as his right hand, wrapped in white bandages, is placed on a wooden desk before it is cut off and put into a white plastic bag.
It is less than a week since ISIS militants carried out a similar punishment on a man in Mosul, Iraq.
Gruesome: Unidentified ISIS militants cut off the hand of an accused thief in front of dozens of men and boys in Raqqa
(While it is critically important that the ‘hudud’, the barbaric punishments meted out by sharia law ‘courts’ are never implemented in a Western nation, the punishments are quite truly the least problematic aspects of it, with the nature of the crime being second and the methods used for determining guilt being first. This deserves an entire essay on its own)
The Pas-de-Calais prefect Fabienne Buccio said that they plan to evacuate around half of the migrant camp on the outskirts of the northern port town.
“The time has come to move on, no one must live in the southern part of the camp, everyone must leave this section,” said Buccio, the national’s government local representative, estimating some 800 to 1,000 migrants would be affected.
Aid associations believe around 2,000 migrants live in the southern part of the camp.
Buccio said officials will visit migrants in that part of the camp next week to explain to them what was planned.
(I know I posted something similar last night but a headline such as that I feel bears a certain amount of repetition)
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has warned that the deployment of foreign ground troops in the Syrian conflict could result in a world war.
Medvedev was quoted as saying in an interview published late on Thursday by the German newspaper Handelsblatt that “a ground operation draws everyone taking part in it into a war”.
Russia will have no choice but to use Tactical (Battlefield) Nuclear Weapons to defend Syria once a ground invasion begins within 18 days, by 350,000 troops, 20,000 Tanks, 2,450 military planes and 460 Helicopters from 25 countries massing in northern Saudi Arabia. Syria has warned “any aggressor entering the country will go home in wooden coffins;” Russia has said “any country sending ground troops into Syria without permission will be considered a declaration of war.”
Thousands of soldiers from regional countries are set to participate in what is being “called” a military “exercise” media reports say.
(I’m inclined to disbelieve Syria on this claim as I doubt they have that much wood)
The protest delayed detention hearings for the 14 suspects linked to an an alleged plan to target refugees living in asylum housing on a campsite in Nynäshamn, a small town in a rural area south of Stockholm.Officers rounded up the group on Monday night in cars close to the accommodation, which is home to some 100 men, women and children. Batons, knives, iron bars and axes were found in the suspects’ vehicles.Three of the men were formally arrested, while a 17-year-old was questioned and released.Police have previously revealed that the suspects have Polish and Ukranian citizenship. Some are understood to live and work in Sweden while others are believed to have been staying in the country temporarily.
One of the men accused of plotting to use a moped in a series of Islamic State-inspired drive-by shootings in London dramatically changed his plea at the Old Bailey today.
The first defendant, Tarik Hassane, 22, admitted conspiracy to murder and preparation of terrorist acts as the defence was about to start in the Old Bailey trial.
Tarik Hassane, 22, admitted conspiracy to murder and preparation of terrorist acts as the defence was about to start in the Old Bailey trial
He pleaded guilty to researching, planning and sourcing a weapon and ammunition with a view to committing terrorist acts in London
The charges state that he conspired with co-defendants and others to murder ‘a person or persons unknown’ between July 8 and September 25 2014.
He was standing trial along with Nathan Cuffy, 26, Suhaib Majeed, 21, and Nyall Hamlett, 25, who deny the charges.
The asylum seeker who stabbed 22-year-old Alexandra Mezher to death at an accommodation centre in Sweden last month is an adult, not a 15-year-old as he had claimed, Sweden’s migration agency has ruled.
Ms Mezher was stabbed at the centre for refugee children aged between 14 and 17 who are without any adult guardians in Molndal near Gothenburg on Sweden’s west coast.
The agency’s ruling, which came after a series of interviews with the young man, means he could face a prison sentence for the brutal killing.
(As mentioned before, according to multiple people I have spoken to who have worked at homes like this, staging a fight in order to create a circumstance where the care givers can be attacked is a very common tactic)
