Women stoned to death in Syria for adultery


#1

BEIRUT (AP) - A cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground. When residents gathered, the fighters told them to carry out the sentence: Stoning to death for the alleged adulteress.

None in the crowd stepped forward, said a witness to the event in a northern Syrian city. So the jihadi fighters, mostly foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away.

“Even when she was hit with stones she did not scream or move,” said an opposition activist who said he witnessed the stoning near the football stadium and the Bajaa garden in the city of Raqqa, the main Syrian stronghold of the Islamic State group.

Praying for them.

and what about the man? total opposite of how Jesus reacted to the women caught in adultery. Again it is blame the woman, and let the man go free. For all we know, she could have been a rape victim.

Praying for the repose of her soul.

I think it was interesting to note that the townspeople did not pick up the stones and that it was up to the “true believer” ISIS soldiers to do this dirty deed.

Maybe this will lead to the locals taking a stand against these monsters.

This is just part of the barbarity of these Muslim extremists (who are just carrying out what the Koran proposed as just punishment.) We see these beheadings and Crucifixions of Christians and threatened genocide in northern Iraq and the expulsion of all Christians from Mosel. It is time to wake up. Thank God that weak man Obama is actually allowing America to defend the defenseless; to feed the starving; to give water to the thirsty Christians and other minorities that are under attack.
It is good to see my country join with humanitarian support for this cause for justice.
People attack America for being involved in wars, but this is a just war and America should be praised for coming to the aid of these peoples.

This is well-stated. Totally agree.

We have some neighbors from Sudan, they have friends from there who visit them as well and besides all of this, yes, they are Roman Catholics. I catch glimpses of their lives and some of their friends. I think it must have been very very hard on them over there, the ones who lived through what happened in Sudan. I read one of a book of the genre “Lost Boys” about Sudan. It must be similar. Unfortunately, apparently a lot of the Muslim world also still practices “slavery”. I think even that has been in the news. A real menace we live with.

Yes. I just read that about 500 women were captured just in Mosul to be sold as sex slaves. The horror is more than I can even comprehend, but the crucifixions, beheadings, and other atrocities going on there sure do make a lot of our complaints seem pretty insignificant in contrast.
