The Telegraph reports that IS have apparently taken literally the injunction to throw the children of Lot (you know what they got up to, nudge) off a high place. There are photos.
Photographs have emerged that appear to show members of the Islamic State group in Iraq throwing a man from a building in punishment for being gay.
The graphic images, seemingly taken in the northern Isil controlled city of Mosul, show a man being pushed to his death before a large crowd that had gathered in the main square below.
One photograph, taken from the top of the building, shows the man from behind, blindfolded and with his hands tied across his back, being pushed to the ledge by his executioner.
In another photo, a jihadist, his face covered with a balaclava, is shown reading out the apparent sentence that was ruled in the extremists’ “Sharia court”.
There’s that stupid word again – “extremists.” They’re not “extremists,” they’re murderers, criminals, fascist murdering theocrats. Calling them “extremists” is euphemistic.
A caption for another photo says the man had been convicted of the practices of the “people of lot”, a euphemism for sodomy.
I suppose they also say “thank you for flying with us” right before they cut off people’s heads.
