The Islamic State (ISIS) captured two Turkish soldiers and burned them alive in what could be the most barbaric video released by the terror organization to date. The video, which was first released by The Clarion Project, comes as Turkey and Russia brokered a ceasefire in Syria between the Sunni rebels and the government loyal to Shiite President Bashar al-Assad.
The footage shows the two Turkish soldiers caged before being let out to get tied up to what looks like a fuse of white phosphorus. The Islamic State (ISIS) soldier than detonates the blasting cap that lights the fuse on fire and it proceeds to travel toward the condemned men. While ISIS and other Islamic fundamentalists cut off the heads of nonbelievers in the West and around the world, Muslim law calls for those in the faith to be burned alive to signal they are traitors to Allah.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan expressed a desire to involve fellow-Sunni nations Saudi Arabia and Qatar in the peace talks, two nations who have funded Sunni terror groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in the past. The proposal wholeheartedly rejected by Shiite Iran. The regime in Tehran is an Assad ally that has also been involved in peace negotiations. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have worked with Turkey to support Sunni rebel groups fighting against Assad.
President Erdoğan also claimed publicly earlier in the week that Turkey had evidence indicating the Obama administration funds Sunni Islamic radical groups. While he did not provide any details, it is clear that the weapon in the video is a version of the American-made M-4. However, ISIS militants seized a significant amount of U.S. weaponry and supplies when they were allowed to conquer large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.
From time to time, PPD and other outlets such as The Clarion Project publish graphic videos to educate the public and to make sure the world does not forget about the evil perpetuated by ISIS and other Islamists.
