No More Tolerance For Radicalized Islam

Over the last few years I’ve been reevaluating my life long views and beliefs as a liberal pacifist.  I can’t help but be reminded of the lessons I learned while taking a series of undergraduate courses on genocide and the holocaust that were taught by Professor Emeritus, Leon Stein; while I attended Roosevelt University (Chicago, IL).

I am not unlike so many who truly believed that as a society, if we learned enough about history we would be able to prevent the ugly horrors from repeating themselves.  This utopian dream could be a reality, if only there were not so many charismatic, murderous cult leaders who use their own power and control over their followers in the very similar way that Adolf Hitler did.

There are so many different types of cults that kill, which includes those who manipulate religion to promote the personal agendas of sociopathic cult leaders.  One such example is that of Jim Jones, who bastardized Christianity when he murdered his congregants at Jonestown with tainted Kool-Aid.

Unfortunately, when individual’s get involved with dangerous cults, they often lose their ability to utilize their own critical thinking.  Cult members are unaware that their minds have been manipulated to the point that they are no longer able to make rational decisions, think for themselves and to recognize the maladaptive influences, motives and or biases their cult leaders may have used to manipulate them.  I personally believe this is exactly what is happening with those who are aligning themselves with such hate groups such as Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIS or any of the other radicalized Islamic group out there.

The psychotherapist in me wants to believe that there is hope for those who became subservient to these murderous cult leaders, who use .  That they stand a chance of being deprogrammed, to learn how to think for themselves without outside influence from their cult leaders.  I want to believe that these followers of contaminated form of Islam are capable of feeling remorse for the horrendous crimes they committed against humanity.

The problem is that as a society we are unable to wait for these followers to get the mental health help they so critically need.  The pacifist side of me wants to believe that with peace talks things can change, yet the reality is there should be NO negotiating with terrorists.  The leaders of these are nothing more then sociopaths.  In the early days of the holocaust no one wanted to believe that Hitler could become as powerful as he became.  By not supporting Israel, we are opening the gates for horror stories like we have never seen before.  I wish the solution was to just put daisies in the ends of assault weapons, yet the reality is that with these radicalized Islamic brainwashed terrorists, the daisies won’t work.

ISIS supporter getting a BABY to kick the severed head of a Syrian soldier

By Tom Wyke for MailOnline

A sickening photo has emerged social media showing a toddler kicking the severed head of a dead soldier in Syria.

The toddler’s father is believed to be an avid Islamic State supporter and is wearing a camouflage military style baseball cap on his head.

The father can be seen smiling with delight in the photo as he watches his innocent child kick the severed head.

Shocking photo has emerged showing a suspected ISIS supporter encouraging a toddler to kick the severed head of a dead soldier

Leaning over, the bearded man, wearing a short white thoub, appears to be helping his young child to raise their small leg and kick the rotting head of the dead body.

At least one person, wearing three quarter length jeans can be seen watching the horrific scene.

The severed head, which is too gruesome to show in full detail, appears to be several days old.

It appears to be the head of a dead prisoner, although it is hard to distinguish his features due to the heavy decomposition of the face.

The face has also suffered a deep wound, suggesting the victim had been militated with a knife.

The horrific photo comes just hours after ‘Raqqa is being Slaughtered silently’, a Syrian activist group based in the ISIS stronghold posted photos of the latest barbaric execution carried out by IS.

The photo shows a crowd of young boys, standing around a wooden gallows. There appears to be at least ten boys in the photo, but few are focused on the gruelsome scene nearby.

At the center of the photo is the body of a Syrian rebel member, who has been crucified and beheaded.

It is believed he was the relative of Zahran Alloush, the renowned leader of Jaysh al-Islam, one of the groups which is part of the Islamic Front and fighting to form their own Islamic State in Syria.

Zahran Alloush shot to fame for surprising reasons in early July when Islamic Front released a video showing the imposing figure of Alloush delivering a rousing speech to denounce Islamic State.

However, it was his notebook which attracted a bigger talking point rather than the words of his speech.

On his desk, a Hello Kitty notebook appears to have been used by Alloush whilst making notes for his speech.

The Japanese brand, which celebrated its 40th birthday the other day, is better known to be the trusted diary for teenage girls rather than fearsome rebel leaders, leading many Islamic State supporters to mock Alloush on social media.

It is unknown exactly how closely related the dead prisoner in the photo was to Zahran Alloush. However due to the age of his body, it is likely he was possibly a distant, younger cousin.

The photo shows how he was subjected to a brutal death as his arms are bound to the scaffolds in an outstretched crucifixion pose.

The head has been severed from his body and placed on his lap, with blood still dripping from the open neck wound.

The horrific scene, which appears to have been openly witnessed by children, underlines the brutality of Islamic State.

Their interpretation of Shari’a law has meant that public executions for crimes like ‘cursing God’ and ‘sorcery’ have become a fixture in the city’s public square.

Young boys appear to be openly encouraged to witness these appalling scenes without any consideration by adults.

‘Raqqa is being slaughtered silently’ has developed a reputation for providing a shocking insight into life in Raqqa.

The secret activist group, whose members risk their lives to document the atrocities happening in the IS held city of Raqqa, have previously published other photos of public executions and general oppression.

Several of the groups members have been imprisoned and executed, whilst attempting to document the crimes being carried out by Islamic State militants.
