Islamic Judge Orders Syrian Girl Stoned to Death for Facebook Account


529517

Fatoum Al-Jassem, a Syrian girl in the city of Rakka, apparently ran afoul of Islamic law and Al Qaeda in Iraq (known as ISIS or ISIL). Taken to a Sharia court, the judge ruled that having a Facebook account was Zina or immoral behavior and penalized the same way as adultery. (In Islam, many acts of immorality are referred to by a word that translates as adultery.)

The Facebook account was described as an act of great wickedness that merited severe punishment. Hypocritically the Al Nusra Front has a Facebook page and ISIS probably does too. But Muslim men tend to have different standards for women.

Rakka was the first provincial capital to fall to the Sunni Islamic rebels and was captured by the Al Nusra Front, which is the Syrian Al Qaeda affiliate (though these days there is more than just one.)

Al Qaeda in Iraq had developed its own abusive presence in Rakka, vandalizing churches and raising Islamic Caliphate flags over them in triumph. Some of the uglier videos in Syria have come out of the city so this story is not too surprising.

While the only English language report of this appears in Iran’s Fars News, it’s been widely published in Arabic. ISIS is widely hated now even within the Sunni opposition and so its opponents would have every incentive to make up stories about it. As I have said in the past, so much propaganda is coming out of all the different factions and sides in Syria that it is effectively impossible to determine whether anything is true or not.

The photo used by way of illustration on many of the stories, including this one, appears to be from the film The Stoning of Soraya M about the stoning of a woman in Iran.

Islamic positions on Facebook have been ambiguous in both Sunni and Shiite circles. Some Sunni clerics have issued bans against Facebook for reasons of immorality.

    Every ISIS thug wearing a ski masks when they execute people should be executed.

    The ski masked thugs know they are immoral. If people knew their faces and knew who they were, they would execute these thugs one by one.

    one more reason to be ashamed of being a citizen of an muslim country though i’m an atheist

  • wileyvet

    These muslim scum haven’t changed in 1400 years. We in the west have nothing to learn from Islam, except what Barbaric savages all of them are. The west deceives itself into believing that all the bad muslims are over “there” while the good ones are over “here”. Two sides of the same evil coin. Islam needs to be destroyed root and branch.

    • Sudhir Mada

      Yet there are people calling it a Religion of Peace ! As long as they are in Minority they will act as victims and promote equal rights ! Once in Majority they will demolish all rights and Apply Sharia Law !!

      It is my hearty request that keep Islam and Extremist people
      separate, do not merge them for taking conclusions.Islam is the
      religion of peace. There is no permission of such brutal act in Islam.
      Al Qaeda had birth in the hands of America for fighting in Afghanistan
      but later on both took their own way.

    If we had an American president, or someone with a brain running the CIA, we would be doing everything in our power to keep the warring Islamists at each other’s throats. We could employ the Middle Eastern mantra, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” except for the fact that Obama is the friend of our enemy.

    When it comes to Muslims, disharmony and accelerated attrition are our friends.

      Well said! I would go a little further and say we should get the Kurds into the mix and really have a ball. The sit back with a good bourbon as chaos, panic and disorder are sown.

      There are more people out there who are hoping to get your skin, Ross. But there are more Muslims who just wanted to live their lives. Live and Let Live.

      • Ross A Lloyd

        No friend, there are people out there like a few close friends of mine who call themselves Muslims. The truth is they are definitely not Muslims. It matters not what you call yourself. If you do not follow jihad and Sharia one is not a Muslim and unless they are prepared to pay jizza to the real Muslims will find themselves on top of the real Muslims’ hit list…

  • Elizabeth Cape Cod

    Meanwhile, the men doing the stoning condone the marrying of children and wife beating, but THIS they think is immoral?

    • Sudhir Mada

      when did you hear them condoning Child Marriage and Wife Beating ?

      • S. Taher

        When they claim Mohammad, who married a 6 year old girl, is the ideal role model for all Muslims, they are pretty much saying marrying a 6 year old is fine. And as for wife beating, the Quran directly instructs men to beat their wives if they even suspect disobedience. Google it.

        • The Crusader

          So its 6 yo now. Get your fact correct or people will take you as a Moron.

          • http://batman-news.com The Crusader

            I tot only Indians beat their wives.

          • Sudhir Mada

            Mo’s betrothal to his fifth wife Aisha was established when she was four years old by her uncle. They were married when she was six, and had a baby at nine. These are the historical facts, as recounted by Aisha herself in the Hadiths.

      don’t forget how they like to have “prom night” with their favorite goat. But its women who are leading them astray and are blamed for everything. the blink sheik still thinks the world is flat, so they are genuinely stupid ignorant bastards.

  • Joe Blow

    Zina is a term used ONLY for sexual activities and/or situations. This article is a distraction.

    • Berceuse

      That is not correct. The Qur’an specifically describes other forms of Zina than penetration, including “Zina of the eyes” and “Zina of the ears,” meaning other forms of immoral behavior involving looking at or listening to inappropriate material.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      You sound as gullible and naive as the current head of our CIA and the National Intelligence Director.

      • Joe Blow

        really, how so? all i did was throw all my emotion out and research the term with logic and reason only. I found that this article is wrong. granted I DO NOT agree with what some of the so-called muslims profess as their “religion”. I am more than willing to look into their beliefs and the definitions of their words. Not everything we are told is true. a lot of it is designed to instill emotional responses. yes, it is true that horrors are happening within islam as we speak. but those horrors are being committed by people who falsely claim the faith. much like the horrors committed by so-called christians during the medieval ages and crusades. history will forever repeat itself as we forget the lessons we are taught during that relevant time frame.

        • ObamaYoMoma

          I DO NOT agree with what some of the so-called muslims profess as their “religion”

          I hate to rain on your gullible useful idiot parade, but Islam is not a religion, as there is no freedom of conscience in Islam for Muslims to decide not to wage jihad in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme or for that matter to simply decide that they don’t want to be Muslims any longer, as blasphemy and apostasy in Islam are capital offenses. I don’t know what religion you are talking about, but whatever it is, it isn’t mainstream orthodox Islam.

          Apparently, you were gullible enough to believe GWB when he lied to the American people by falsely proclaiming that Islam is a so-called “religion of peace” and that the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims were peaceful and moderate people, with the exception of a tiny minority of radical Muslim extremists who misunderstood the wonderful “religion of peace.” Indeed, if you believe that, I have some prime desert land in the Everglades I need to sell you.

          yes, it is true that horrors are happening within islam as we speak.

          Here’s a few simple exercises for you, point to just one majority Islamic country that isn’t an Islamic totalitarian hellhole or well on the path to becoming one. Point to just one country in the world, where mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage is occurring and where the majority of Muslim immigrants actually assimilated and integrated as opposed to forming Muslim enclaves that in time morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) and that in effect are tiny Islamic statelets within the larger host infidel states. Point to just one Islamic majority country in the world that doesn’t harshly oppress the non-Muslim dhimmis living there when not also raping and murdering them as well. Point to just one Islamic country that doesn’t harshly oppress females. Point to just one non-Muslim infidel country bordering an Islamic country that isn’t plagued by very bloody perpetual jihad.

          but those horrors are being committed by people who falsely claim the faith. much like the horrors committed by so-called christians during the medieval ages and crusades.

          So Muslims today who you naively proclaim falsely claim the faith were like Christians during the medieval ages and the crusades? Hell, you didn’t receive an education! Instead, you received an indoctrination that rendered you into little more than a very gullible useful idiot and a religious bigot. Dude you are thoroughly embarrassing yourself, yet you are too dumb to realize it.

          history will forever repeat itself as we forget the lessons we are taught during that relevant time frame.

            so, you are quoting mainstream medias version of history. how is this any different than the lies Obama has told? or the lies Bush told? or the lies of mainstream media?? have you ever taken a moment to look at WHO is telling us our “news” and “history”? CNN and FOX, that is who. They have both been caught in lie after lie after lie.. -_-

            Why don’t you go and ask a real muslim what they think? Instead of believing every bullshit story mainstream promotes..-_-

            A real muslim would obviously surprise you. In fact, let’s look at a verse from the Quran:

            Sahih InternationalIndeed,
            those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans
            [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in God and
            the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their
            Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.”

            This quote clearly states that true Islam considers ALL religions to be the word of God. And also proclaims that ALL God’s people will be rewarded for their obedience to the One and ONLY God. Allah is a Muslim word/attrribute to the English word, God. And that is all it means.. Muslim means to submit to God and only God…-_-

            FYI, I am Israeli. I am a Kohan, descendent of Arron. Arron was the brother of Moses. The voice of Moses as Moses was not a prolific speaker and needed his brother to help communicate with the people.

            Why don’t you go and ask a real muslim what they think?

            Why…there is no freedom of conscience in Islam, thus, a Muslim will only lie and try to deceive me. Trust me I have better more productive things to do with my valuable time.

            You know NOTHING of ANYTHING

            That description very aptly describes you, which is why when you tried to insinuate that Islam is a so-called “religion of peace”, like a mentally incompetent fool you were dumb enough to quote an abrogated verse. Nevertheless, according to the so-called MSM, Islam is a religion of peace, exactly like you ignorantly claim.

            And yet you claim they are evil. Your mind is set to hatred.

            See what I mean!

            Uhm dude….go back and answer those exercises I left for you and then post them. We will see who is living in a bubble.

            Go and read for yourself.

            Religious minorities have not “flourished” under Islam. In fact, they have dwindled to mere shadows after centuries of persecution and discrimination. Some were converted from their native religion by brute force, others under the agonizing strain of dhimmitude.

            What Muslims call “tolerance,” others correctly identify as institutionalized discrimination. The consignment of Jews and Christians to dhimmis under Islamic rule means that they are not allowed the same religious rights and freedoms as Muslims. They cannot share their faith, for example, or build houses of worship without permission.

            Historically, dhimmis have often had to wear distinguishing clothing or cut their hair in a particular manner that indicates their position of inferiority and humiliation. They do not share the same legal rights as Muslims, and must even pay a poll tax (the jizya). They are to be killed or have their children taken from them if they cannot satisfy the tax collector’s requirements.

            For hundreds of years, the Christian population in occupied Europe had their sons taken away and forcibly converted into Muslim warriors (known as Jannisaries) by the Ottoman Turks.

            It is under this burden of discrimination and third-class status that so many religious minorities converted to Islam over the centuries. Those who didn’t often faced economic and social hardships that persist to this day and are appalling by Western standards of true religious tolerance and pluralism.

            For those who are not “the People of the Book,” such as Hindus and atheists, there is very little tolerance to be found once Islam establishes political superiority. The Quran tells Muslims to “fight in the way of Allah” until “religion is only for Allah.” The conquered populations face death if they do not establish regular prayer and charity in the Islamic tradition (ie. the pillars of Islam).

            Tamerlane and other Muslim warriors slaughtered tens of millions of Hindus and Buddhists, and displaced or forcibly converted millions more over the last thousand years. Islamists in Somalia behead Christians. In Iran, they are jailed.

            One of the great ironies of Islam is that non-Muslims are to be treated according to the very standards by which Muslims themselves would claim the right to violent self-defense were the shoe on the other foot. Islam is its own justification. Most Muslims therefore feel no need to explain the ingrained arrogance and double standard.

            There are about 500 verses in the Quran that speak of Allah’s hatred for non-Muslims and the punishment that he has prepared for their unbelief. There is also a tiny handful that say otherwise, but these are mostly earlier verses that many scholars consider to be abrogated by the later, more violent ones.

            As for Sura 109, any true Quran scholar will point out that the purpose of the verse was to distinguish Islam from the gods of the Quraysh (one of which was named “Allah”) rather than to advocate religious tolerance for non-Muslims. At the time that he narrated this very early verse, Muhammad did not have any power, and thus no choice but to be “tolerant” of others. By contrast, there was no true tolerance shown when he returned to Mecca with power many years later and demanded the eviction or death of anyone who would not convert to Islam. In fact, he physically destroyed the cherished idols of the people to whom he had previously addressed in Sura 109.

            If tolerance simply means discouraging the mass slaughter of those of a different faith, then today’s Islam generally meets this standard more often than not. But, if tolerance means allowing people of other faiths the same religious liberties that Muslims enjoy, then Islam is fundamentally the most intolerant religion under the sun.

            “Here’s a few simple exercises for you…”

            Before assigning the exercise, we should evaluate its purpose. You appear to be attempting to establish correlation and pass it off as causation, but I could be wrong. Let’s assume for a moment that the answers you’re fishing for were correct – what would you thereby conclude?

  • Hanny

    I am muslim and that story is searched for it everywhere I didn’t find it but here stop lying I might be muslim but I have a Christian bf you know what he doesn’t go around lying about Islam and he is the cutest guy ever

  • loneamerican

    This particular story may not be true, but there are many others related to stoning. The worst incidents are those related to whipping or caning of women and girls. The one woman who commented on this article is living in denial about the treatment of women in Islamic countries.

    • Joe Blow

      Yes, you are correct. But this is true in any culture in this world and our world history. You can date back hundreds of years and find the same storyline. In any religion. Any nation, Anywhere. Just look at the crusades to see how a few bad eggs made all of christianity look evil. when the truth was that only a small portion were the problem. YET, most people back then thought ALL christians believed those horrors were fine to commit..-_-

      History is repeating itself. Yet again.

      • Rick Kuda

        The Crusades made Christianity look “evil”? The muslim armies that invaded Europe and Africa around 1000 a.d. had conquered half of France before the Pope declared the Crusades. Yeah, they did a horrible, half-a$#ed job of retaking the lands that had been colonized by the “religion of peace”, and didn’t even try in Africa, but I wouldn’t say the effort to stop Islam from conquering the world made Christianity “evil”. It is, like Islam, evil because it wants to conquer the world as well!

        • Joe Blow

          so, when the catholic church slaughtered innocent people that was fine…-_-

          History IS repeating itself.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Americans take heed: Islamic totalitarian law, i.e., Sharia, will be the end result here in America as well if the public doesn’t force both political parties to divorce their current marriages to PC multiculturalism. Look around the world, Muslims never ever migrate to assimilate and integrate, but instead to dominate and subjugate.

    • gerbilcrusader

      NOT gonna happen! Too many different races in America. Just my Asian communities will kill these muslims. I guarantee it!

      • ObamaYoMoma

        You are extremely naive. Moreover, Islam is comprised of all races, as it isn’t a race but a cult instead that aims to take over the world for Allah. You have a lot to learn, so stick around.

        • Paul Taylor

          ahhh, now that YOUR so-called religion is revealed your bias makes much sense.

  • AL

    This photo is from Iranian Movie “The Stoning of Soraya M”. So do a bit of research before sharing it like a Jackass.

    • Basheer

      fantastic dude…read my previous comments

    • Joe Blow

      I knew I saw that image somewhere before. Thanks for clearing that up:)

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Yes do a bit of research by reading the post you’re responding to.

      “The photo used by way of illustration on many of the stories, including this one, appears to be from the film The Stoning of Soraya M about the stoning of a woman in Iran.”

      • Joe Blow

        Why was this added today? Why not the day you posted it??

        -_-

        Look man, I understand that things are messed up over there. But, as a journalist you have and owe a duty to your readers to try to debunk ANYTHING before you report on. You OWE this to your readers. This article has generated a massive wave of hatred. Is this the image of America and Christanity you want to promote? A image of a nation and a belief that battles hatred with more hatred? Yahweh would be offended by the blatant use of fear mongering and emotion brewing news. You as a reporter should have the decency to show the reality, the scarcity of these events. NOT, just the 1 or 2 horrors you find. because, in reality, the REAL muslim culture does not approve of this type of thing, this violence and hatred shown in this picture and article. just like the crusades where MOST christians were associated to the guilty few who truly committed the horrors. MOST christains did NOT agree with the fanatics of the catholic church. In fact, many had to hide their beliefs because they were being hunted for crimes they did not, nor would ever commit.

        history repeats itself, time and time again, yet we NEVER learn.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          You’re a liar. It wasn’t added today. It was there all along.

          Sites that picked it up have that paragraph in there

          e.g.

          http://www.aina.org/news/20140213110701.htm

        • Basheer

          Well said… I am wondering why these people who read these kind of news don’t check the authenticity of the news …?? The purpose of the article itself is to create a wave of hatred …

      • Basheer

        For those who managed to get this news before even the credible agencies couldn’t get an actual photograph…sigh… of course you need to add more punch to the news …so add a photo from movie… tomorrow you can select another fiction and claim copyright for your story…

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Arab agencies used the same photo to illustrate the story. Go complain to your own people.

          • muslim in suffer

            why do you so racist pal?!
            why did you blame somebody else, for your own stupid mistakes?!

          • Daniel Greenfield

            You mean pointing out that the story came in this form from Arab agencies is racist?

          • muslim in suffer

            No, because of your lack of jurnalism skill and profesionalism; and then pointed your finger to arab news agencies; that is racist pal …

            Is there any the relation between arab news agencies with your stupidity!?

  • Em Ali

    I hope everyone who wants Assad out is happy now. There are other reports of them strangling a girl to death with video posted online….oh and then there is the famous act of cannibalism last year, and let us not forget the infant who had her heart ripped out by them and the christian girls who were chopped up live with a frame saw in a christian village.

    • waybec

      The trouble is, they’re ALL as bad as each other! Assad is also a Police State mass murdering dictator. If he’d listened to the initial cries for democracy instead of gunning them down, Syria on the whole could have been spared this horrific smorgasbord left to butchers, terrorists and tyrants!

      • Em Ali

        How politically correct of you not to take a side and to basically deny that this wasn’t hijacked by extremist factions right from the start. Simple fact of the matter is these things were not going on when Assad was in power and it was a beautiful country.

        • waybec

          The simple travesty and tragedy is, is that when it comes to a male machismo Religion like Islam, it can only be controlled by Tyranny either within it or against it! The Tyranny of the Iranian & Egyptian Regime’s typify this polar argument in both cases perfectly,

          • Em Ali

            Last I checked Assad is secular smart one. He also provided a free secular education to the Syrian youth. And yes I agree religious governments aren’t good for anything, especially in a diverse country such as Syria.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Assad isn’t secular.

          • Em Ali

            Last I checked he is the leader of Syria’s secular Baath party.

            Ba’ath party (bäˈäth) [key], Arab political party, in Syria and in Iraq. Its main ideological objectives are secularism, socialism, and pan-Arab unionism. Founded in Damascus in 1941 and reformed, with the name Ba’ath, in the early 1950s, it rapidly achieved political power in Syria.
            Read more: Ba’ath party | Infoplease.com http://www.infoplease.com/encyclopedia/history/baath-party.html#ixzz2tiJl0th7

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Secularism means something rather different in a system where laws are still based on Islam.

          • Em Ali

            Family and personal laws are based on Islam…….however Islam is not the state religion. The Ba’ath party is and always will be secular and based on Arab nationalism…..and they certainly don’t stone women for social networking.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            “Family and personal laws are based on Islam.”

            That’s not secular. It’s only secular relative to more Islamist systems.

          • Em Ali

            In the end Assad is still secular which is a good thing, and this family law thing is only to satisfy a majority of the population.

  • Basheer

    nonesense… watch this movie….this is from an iranian film… you guys changed the name of the girl ‘soraya’ to syria
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q58nLi5eA-I

    • Daniel Greenfield

      As mentioned in the post, the image used to illustrate the story was derived from that movie. Not the story itself.

      • Joe Blow

        Then why did the article not say that yesterday? Please explain. And yes, next time I come across something like this I will be taking a print screen for proof in-case they “edit” the article within a “convenient” time frame. again..-_-

        • Daniel Greenfield

          The article said it yesterday. Sites that originally picked up the story have that paragraph in there.

          http://www.aina.org/news/20140213110701.htm

          you’re a lying troll and you fail

          • Basheer

            who is lying here…you wrote the same news in that website…last line says in your previous comment says who you are…

          • Daniel Greenfield

            That website copied this article.

          • Basheer

            Do you want copyright protection? I guess fake news can claim copyright and patent since its mere innovation…

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Do trolls dream of electric sheep?

      • Basheer

        There is no such news(fars) agency in iran.. iran has IRNA which obviously under control of govt… this agency has a long tradition of fake news….you can see the same news in other websites… however , the agency remains the same….do some research or else be in dark intenionally…. its your choice…

    • Basheer

      .

  • Joe Blow

    want more proof? just watch the movie: The Stoning of Soraya M

    I am sooo sick of these so-called news reports not checking their sources before reporting this stuff as news.

    -_-

  • Joe Blow

    hmmm. I shoulda taken a screenshot of this article yesterday. They have edited this article to include the fact that the picture is from a movie. I was willing to say that this reporter and media site simply made a mistake. BUT, it looks like they are trying to cover it up. I used to like this site. BYE.

  • Joe Blow

    For the record, the fact that this article is sketchy should not deter people from this site. It should be a reminder to reporters and readers alike to thoroughly check your sources before you accept validity of any news this day and age. Anybody can make a fake article. Anybody can make a fake website. The islamic reported site for this did not allow me to highlight the text so I could translate it and also run the text to do a more thorough search. that alone is extremely sketchy. That means that the article itself is just an imbedded image from “only God knows where”.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The fact that Joe Blow is trolling and a commenter should not deter non-trolls from leaving comments.

  • dutecust

    Sooo… Proof? Anyone? Like anything that could support this obviously sensationalistic report, from a not so credited source such as Fars News? Besides a movie screenshot designed to provoke an emotional response? Can we please try and get facts straight before polishing our guns? You know, for the sake of innocent lives that might be lost, just because someone, somewhere is keen on making millions of people look bad on account of one isolated (and doubtfully real) incident?

    pls

    • Daniel Greenfield

      There are links to Arabic sites reporting it.

      • dutecust

        If you had devoted just a minute of your time to researching those Arabic sites, you would have easily found the same clues to this report standing on shaky feet at best.

        How come western credible sites and newsrooms aren’t publishing this? Don’t you think they’d jump at the chance to expose the ‘vile muslims’ and their ‘cruel ways’?

        Smells fake.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          What clues would those be exactly?

  • CoeyCoey

    Of course the indoctrination in the West is much much worse. Americans drop bombs on little children to protect their economy. They rape the planet for its resources. They starve the poor so they can have their steaks.

    The difference between the sociopathic Muslims doing the stoning and the sociopathic Americas are that the Muslims look their victims in the eye when they kill them.

      The photo is used for illustration purposes as was stated in the article.

  • Acubens

    Hi there folks. It’s interesting to see how much time you are spending thinking you are smart and intelligent and all-knowing wasting your time commenting on a hoax and a propaganda story with pictures taken from a fictitious movie claiming to be based on a true story. The film itself was a propaganda attack on Iran by US interests. Please, I pray, know your religion first, then the religion you want to condemn. Condemning without knowing is the pinnacle of stupidity and an affront to human intelligence. Every religion has its zealots, fanatics, lunatics and twisty interpreters. So beware how you tread the path of faith, belief or religion. No unassailable evidence is available for any religion. I pray for your well being. I am a Muslim.

  • muslim in suffer

    If this story is real, why you afraid to post the real photo. So we all can sure, you totally honest about what happened. Why did you fake the picture?

    Or maybe because, you were hiding ‘smelly rotten fish’ here!

    You just like CNN, become barbaric syi’i rezim of syiria and iran propaganda tools voluntarily.

    And they get legitimation to slaughter the syirian innocent muslims, because of you!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      I don’t have the photo. If you find one, let me know.

      • muslim in suffer

        If you have no proof, how could you post this propaganda recklessly?

        • Daniel Greenfield

          I posted a story circulating in the Arab media while making it clear that it couldn’t be established absolutely.

          If you consider that cheap propaganda, go talk to your own brothers.

          • muslim in suffer

            If you knew that the story is fake, of course because you put your professionalism and your neck at risk; why were you so dumb and blind following their reckless step?

            They are not my brothers or sisters; they are and you of course indirectly; rape my sister, slaughter my father and brothers and gases my babies!

            So, how do you feel pal?!

  • Waqas Ahmad

    It is my hearty request to everyone that keep Islam and Extremist people separate, do not merge them for taking conclusions.Islam is the religion of peace. There is no permission of such brutal act in Islam. Al Qaeda had birth in the hands of America for fighting in Afghanistan but later on both took their own way.

  • ashish

    Barbaric absolutely a barbaric act in the name of religion.In this 21st century how can this barbarism continue in Islamic world is a matter of concern.Why no sane Muslim protest against this? Seems humanism,education and sanctity are not present in the religion.Some fanatics follow this barbaric religion.

    that is my whole point…. since the civil war started recently, why is there evidence that part of this article was derived from a google archive from 2005?? riddle me that batman…. -_-

    haha. your link is gone now. I guess it was removed to prevent others from seeing it.. please link me on my Google+ page so I can check the video out:) Thanks:)

    God Bless:)

  • Daniel Greenfield

    This article can’t have existed in 2005 because the things it discusses didn’t exist then.

  • Joe Blow

    then explain the trace I ran on the HTML code for this. the “islamic” version of this article was in a google archive from 2005. And to top it off.. The 2nd link “widely published” has been removed from google. really, the link was removed. -_- sooo conveniently AFTER many of us came here ranting over the lack of truth to this.

    As I said earlier. As a reporter, you have a duty to make sure what you are reporting is factual. These are the kinds of things that generate hatred that will end up in bloody riots. good people end up dead because of faulty reporting in the news. and quite frankly, WE the people are sick of it.

    CHECK YOUR SOURCES NO MATTER WHAT, WHO, WHEN, WHERE and WHY!!!

  • Daniel Greenfield

    Why don’t you stop trolling and actually link to this supposed evidence that you have that a story about the Syrian Civil War was published years before the civil war happened.

  • Joe Blow

    check the code for yourself. run that site you just linked, you will find that the html trace back does not include the w3c. which means that the site itself comes from another source that is blocked in the code. HTML code tells the whole story.

  • Daniel Greenfield

    Spewing gibberish is not providing evidence. I asked you to provide evidence

  • Joe Blow

    open the link in basic html and see for yourself. any modern web browser can view basic html code. you are the reporter. it is NOT my job to do your job.

  • Daniel Greenfield

    You’re still babbling.

    You keep claiming that a story about today’s Syrian Civil War is from 2005.

    Provide actual documented proof of your claims by showing a link to this earlier story or shut up.
