In the course of the ISIS terrorist organization doing their level best to establish a world-wide Islamic caliphate, many have argued that their methods have been barbaric at a minimum, Satanic at a maximum. Case in point: Beheading or burning alive their captives has simply become, as the French would say, just so passé, if now down right gauche.
Proving you can’t spell “terrorist” without “terror,” the jihadists are now dropping their victims in a hug vat filled with nitric acid. As reported by William Watkinson of the International Business Times (UK edition) and also by Sara Malm of the London-based Daily Mail, both on May 19, 2016, word is slowly getting out of the one-third of Iraq that’s still under ISIS control that 25 captured “spies” were dispatched in the highly corrosive acid until their “organs dissolved.”
According to sources, “ISIS terrorist members executed 25 persons in Mosul on charges of spying and collaborating with Iraqi security forces. ISIS members tied each person with a rope and lowered him in the tub, which contains nitric acid, till the victims organs dissolve.”
As noted by both news services, nitric acid is normally used in the manufacture of ammonium nitrate, which then can be used in the production of either fertilizer or explosives. Never known as having an affinity for gardening, it’s plainly obvious as to why the rather bloody Islamic jihadists would maintain a supply of nitric acid on hand. Now, thanks to the likes of ISIS, the corrosive liquid is also used in dispensing death by Shari’a courts against the enemies of the global caliphate.
With the occupied city of Mosul the de facto capital of ISIS Iraq, the city is also home to the ancient Christian population comprised mainly by Chaldean-rite Catholics and the Orthodox Assyrians. As reported also by the IBT on May 18, 2016, a Christian girl from Mosul who suffered third and fourth degree burns throughout her body asked that the ISIS thugs who grievously harmed her be forgiven. The yet to be publicly identified child has since died from her injuries.
Estimated a mere 12-years-old, the child was showering in their Mosul home when unbeknownst to her, her mother was approached by roaming ISIS members who were shaking down the Christians to pay the Jaziya, the extra tax levied on Christians, or face banishment or death. As reported, “They told the family they must leave their home immediately or pay — but when asked for a few seconds to grab the cash the thugs decided to show the limits of their mercy.”
According to human rights advocate, Jacqueline Isaac, “The ISIS foreign fighters were at her door and they told her ‘you have two choices, you are to leave now or you are to pay the Jaziya’. She said ‘I will pay, give me a few seconds my daughter is in the shower.’ They said ‘you don’t have a few seconds’ and they lit the house with a torch from the bathroom the daughter was showering in.”
“As the flames engulfed the building the mother ran to rescue her child from the bathroom but before she could pull her from the flames she had been left with fourth-degree burns.” Isaac added: “The daughter had fourth degree burns and the mother took her daughter, scrambling, doing anything to save her. Rushed her to the hospital and her daughter died in her arms. The last thing her daughter said: ‘Forgive them’.”
