I’m sorry, on all fronts. I hesitated posting this. It makes me sick and sad, but this is so barbaric, the world needs to know it’s happening. ISIS militants in Syria have thrown yet another young man to his death from a building after accusing him of being gay. These sickening photographs, posted by the Daily Mail, show a huge crowd in the street and clambering on to rooftops to get a better view to watch the murder. The blindfolded man is dragged to the roof of the tallest building in the neighbourhood by the militants, who use mobile phones to film him being thrown to his death. The images were released by local activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, who work undercover in the there to expose the terror group’s atrocities.
Similar images were released in January and February of men being thrown from ‘the highest point in the city’ following accusations of homosexuality. Both of these men somehow survived the fall but were then stoned to death by the crowds gathered below. The horrible men responsible for these killings are the lowest of the low, but what might be even worse are the hundreds watching and doing nothing. The year is 2015. Just a reminder, a sad one.
