According to a recent article in The Daily Mail, the Islamic State has promised that it will soon debut a new method of executing its prisoners:
Warnings have emerged of an impending Islamic State video that will reveal a ‘new killing style’ featuring jihadis on horseback.
A poster for the forthcoming video shows prisoners wearing orange jumpsuits surrounded by a framework of poles and militants gathered on horses.
It was posted with a warning the bloodthirsty group are planning to reveal a ‘new killing style’ – in addition to the varying types of executions it already carries out across Iraq and Syria.
Techniques used by ISIS to torture or kill prisoners are always modeled on those used by Mohammed and his companions, as described in the Koran or sahih (authentic) hadith. An alert reader at Vlad Tepes spotted the likely scriptural model for the atrocities depicted in the next batch of snuff propaganda to be released by the Islamic State.
Vlad has compiled a report on his research:
Islamic State’s New Killing Method — Not New, But Very Islamic
Earlier today, the Daily Mail published an article that we linked to, showing some ominous foreshadowing of an impending video with a ‘new’ way of murdering those people who interfere with the Caliph’s absolute supremacy.
An astute reader of Vlad, Chris Jones, left a comment that is very likely the exact description and explanation — not to mention scriptural justification and historical precedent — for what the Islamic State is planning to do to a certain class of people that may obstruct its rule.
In Al-Tabiri’s Tafsir (Vol. 8, pg.96), which expounds on the Sira or biography of Mohammed by Ibn Ishaq (pg.980), there is a detailed account of the horrific, sadistic and unconscionable murder of an elder woman by ripping her in half using camels pulling her legs in opposite directions.
Here are a couple of paragraphs from faithfreedom.org referencing this atrocity:
Umm Qirfa Fatima was taken prisoner. She was a very old woman, wife of Malik. Her daughter and Abdulla b. Mas’ada were also taken. Zaid ordered Qays b al-Musahhar to kill Umm Qirfa and he killed her cruelly.
[from Ibn Ishaq’s biography of Mohammed, pg.980]
Here Al-Tabari explains what “and he killed her cruelly” means:
“And he killed her cruelly”. It is of the cruel method holy warriors of Muhammad espoused to kill Umm Qirfa Tabari mentions as: “By putting a rope into her two legs and to two camels* and driving them until they rent her in two.”
* Some Islamic texts refer to horses, not camels.
[The History of al-Tabari, Volume 8: The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein, Volume 8, pg.95-97]
So once again the Islamic State is bringing back yet another authentic Islamic tradition from the most reliable Islamic sources — just as it did in recreating Janissaries and throwing down homosexuals from the highest structure in the village and then throwing stones at them to finish them off.
Sometimes people were killed by being trampled on by horses:
“She (Sara, a freed slave who insulted Mohammed in Mecca with her songs) lived until someone in the time of Umar b. al-Khattab (2nd caliph) caused his horse to trample her at Abtah and killed her.”
[The History of al-Tabari, Volume 8: The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein, p.179]
Thank you CB Sashenka and Chris Jones for all the work on this.
