Said Ismail Musallam was an Israeli Arab Muslim who thought he was doing the right thing. Like many others, he was recruited by ISIS to travel to Syria under the guise of helping people.
When he got there he had a rude awakening. ISIS was not what it claimed on social media. His parents wired him some money and he tried to escape.
It could happen to anyone, especially foreigners from America, Britain, France, Germany, Australia and more. In a forced confession on his execution video, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, he was made to detail how he was an Israeli spy. Afterwards, a young fighter experts believe was 12 years old them shoots him repeatedly until dead. (Warning: Link contains shocking photos and video)
The message here is clear. Regardless of your allegiance to Islam or status as a Muslim, ISIS has proved time and time again that it does not regard Arab Muslim lives any more highly than anyone else, even less if you are a foreigner.
“A U.N. report released late last year found that ISIS had killed thousands of Muslims — both Sunni and Shia — between July and September of that year. This includes the slayings of three nurses in Mosul, Iraq, because they refused to provide medical care to ISIS fighters. ISIS also killed numerous Sunni imams for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS, and beheaded another Sunni leader for refusing to support the group.” ~CNN
If they can force a fellow Muslim, an Israeli citizen of Palestinian descent (from East Jerusalem), to confess under the threat of imminent execution, how easy do we think that they can accuse any foreign fighter of being a spy?
“Mohamed is not an agent. Mohamed doesn’t have a shekel. If he was an agent he would have lived a beautiful life,” his mother, Hind Musallam, said. “We could have been living a different life and I would not be working cleaning houses so we can live.” ~CNN
Anyone who becomes disillusioned with them and wants to leave can be accused of being a spy and forced to confess in this manner. You are American, have issues with the “Islamic State” and want to leave? You are an American spy! British? You must be a British spy! At gunpoint you will tell the world how you are a spy and then be executed.
“They sent me to a training camp in East Jerusalem – ‘Anatawt Training Camp. That’s where I began my training. I went through a training course on self-control and on how to survive an interrogation.” ~24News
Think about it. If it was true that the Mossad trained him to withstand interrogation, do you think he would be confessing during his execution video?
The barrier of conscience is already virtually non-existent for ISIS. Every sense of Islamic justice is depraved and only their political agenda is paramount.
They accuse the west of lying about them and tell stories of how it’s a wonderful life with ISIS.
“Mohamed told me and his brother that ISIS took him,” according to Said Musallam, his father. “They sent him money through the Western Union. They said you will have girls, money, cars, villas, paradise, but afterwords he discovered that there is nothing.” ~CNN
However, once you are there, you are subject to their whims and if you find out that their sense of Islamic justice is wrong, you stand a good chance of appearing on their next execution video.
“And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah and the Last Day,” but they are not believers.
They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.
In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.
And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”
Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.
And when it is said to them, “Believe as the people have believed,” they say, “Should we believe as the foolish have believed?” Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.
And when they meet those who believe, they say, “We believe”; but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say, “Indeed, we are with you; we were only mockers.”
[But] Allah mocks them and prolongs them in their transgression [while] they wander blindly.
Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided.” ~Qur’an 2:8-16
