Christian Beheads IS Jihadist in Syria's Hasakeh


A Syrian Christian fighter has beheaded an Islamic State group (IS) militant to avenge people "executed" by the jihadists in northeastern Syria, a monitor said on Friday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the incident took place on Thursday in Hasakeh province, where IS holds large areas of the countryside.

According to the monitor, the Christian fighter, a member of the minority Assyrian community, found the jihadist in the local village of Tal Shamiram.

"He took him prisoner and when he found out he was a member of IS, the Assyrian fighter beheaded him in revenge for abuses committed by the group in the region," Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

The Observatory is based in Britain but has covered the Syrian conflict since it broke out four years ago thanks to a network of sources inside the country.

The Christian was fighting in the ranks of Kurdish forces who earlier this month drove IS out of more than a dozen Assyrian villages the jihadists had captured in Hasakeh.

IS has carried out a wave of abuses in areas it controls in both Syria and Iraq, including public beheadings, mass executions, enslavement and rape.

As long as you can be their tool, they don't care about ideology. The Mujahedin e-Khalk of Iran are Leftists as well.

...An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth...or easier still,
just cut off the whole head.

This is great news indeed, from now on this is how it should be, every time we catch one of these IS rats, behead the damn animal. Our worst shortcoming as Christians is not to respond. Treat them as they treat people, show them NO mercy, cut their heads off and feed them to the dogs, end of story. A merciful Christian is a dead Christian, even before his time.
