Reports have come out that a teenage boy was executed before the horrified eyes of his parents in the street in the Sha'ar neighborhood of Aleppo in Syria on Sunday. These are some of the same kinds of people that Barack Obama wants to arm against the Syrian leader and that Senator John McCain visits with and supports.
Mohammed Qatta reportedly refused to give a customer coffee. "Even if Mohammed comes back to life, I won't," the boy said, who was known by his nickname "Salmo."
Israel National News reports,
The punishment came after the boy was overheard by someone during an argument while he was working. "Even if Muhammad comes back to life, I won't lend," the boy reportedly said in his workplace, where he sold coffee and from where he was detained at 10 p.m. Sunday. He was later returned by the rebels to the area, his shirt covering his head and with his body marked from torture and beating.
The men who escorted him then announced to the crowd in classical Arabic that apostasy and cursing the prophet is a "terrible vice" and that anyone who does so will face a similar fate. The SOHR reported the boy was then shot by the two men with an automatic rifle in front of the crowd – which included the boy's mother and father -- once in the neck and once in the head. The two men then drove away in their car, leaving the boy's body behind.
An extremely graphic photo of the teen's face, shot in the mouth and throat and covered in blood, is posted on the SOHR Facebook page. "The SOHR demands that the killers of the child be brought to justice," said the Observatory in a statement on Facebook. "It is important to note that the Shari'a court of Aleppo has a security branch in the area but did not stop the summary execution of the boy.
Alexander Marquardt adds,
The boy's parents confirmed the accounts in an interview posted online on Monday by the Aleppo Media Center. In it, his father stoically recounted the execution while his mother wailed.
"Why did they kill my son," she cried. "We are not for or against anybody in this conflict, may God take revenge on them."
The Islamists and their group have yet to be identified. Large swathes of rebel-held Aleppo are under the control of al Qaeda-linked rebel groups who have set up Sharia courts and welcomed large numbers of foreign fighters into their ranks. The United States and its allies have struggled with the question of whether to arm an extremely fragmented opposition force whose strongest elements have pledged allegiance to al Qaeda.
What is there to struggle with? You simply don't arm these people!
Aleppo is expected to become of the focal point of Syria's two-year civil war in the coming days as Syrian forces look to take back full control of Syria's most populous city in a new offensive reportedly dubbed "Northern Storm."
Are we really to believe that these people are not made from the same cloth? I believe they are.
This is the face of Islam people. It's not pretty. As a result of this story, it is time to put all Islamists on notice here in America. If you are going to identify with Islam, then we are issuing you a warning. That warning is this: If you attempt to push a "convert or die" agenda upon us, cut off our free speech, take our arms or kill us, we will meet you with deadly force in response.
Additionally, elected officials seeking to arm these people, the enemies of our country, are traitors to America and as such should be arrested, tried and if convicted, executed. That is the law. That is what the law demands, not sharia law, but America's laws.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
