After hearing the many atrocities committed by the Islamic State terrorist group, there’s not much that can shock us any longer. However, a series of pictures that have surfaced are beyond shocking, and if they’re true then this is perhaps the most grotesque act they’ve committed yet.
According to Setting the Record Straight, a three-photo series purports to show a cleric from the Islamic State kicking and then stomping the baby of a Christian couple because they refused to convert to Islam. Unfortunately, such brutality is commonplace among the Islamic State, who views anybody who’s not Muslim as an infidel worthy of dying a horrific death.
It’s unclear where the photos were taken, and as always such reports should be read with a degree of skepticism. However, after seeing photos of children’s bodies that have been decapitated, and their heads placed on spikes while the barbarians of the Islamic State celebrated their slaughter, it’s not too hard to believe these are authentic, nor is it unrealistic to think they would do such a thing.
So much for being the “religion of peace.” The world needs to rid itself of this infestation of savages, and we need to do so quickly.
UPDATE – 10/5/2014: It’s now being reported that the image that appears in this article is allegedly of a man named Amzad Fakir, who is a spiritual healer in Bangladesh. Fakir known for using controversial methods in an attempt to cure pediatric illness and was actually arrested in 2010 for his unorthodox treatment practices, which are said to include hanging babies by their feet from poles and swinging them around over his head.
While it’s uncertain if this picture from the Islamic State, it’s not hard to believe the barbaric militants would carry out such heinous acts.
