(ZIP) -- Despite the left’s desperate claims Islam is a “religion of peace,” the Koran does justify beheading captives.
In reply to the outburst over the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning, the Islamic State has released a five point explanation, especially meant for the Muslims to justify the brutal killing.
The five reasons aim to lay down an explanation based on Islamic principles to “guide the permissibility of killing the Prisoners.” [...]
The ISIS guide tells the “faithful” on how to reply to those who say that prisoners in Islam are not killed but rather shown compassion.
The first argument notes that all Mushrik (anyone who worship any other God other than Allah, which includes the Shias, Yazidis, the Kurds) can neither be granted amnesty nor be ransomed off. Quoting a passage from Surah Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War), it says: “Punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.”
The second argument states the reason that a “kufaar” (including Jews and Christians) has to be killed is that if they are not killed, they will later return and pose a threat to Islam.
The third argument is that until and unless a prisoner says subhaanahu wa ta’ala, he can neither be shown generosity and freed without ransom nor be set free after paying a ransom.
The fourth is that amnesty and ransom are possible only after the killing of a large number. So if a captive was imprisoned after that, the Imam has a choice to kill him or (do) otherwise.
