ISIS Snuff Video No Really
Beirut (AFP) - A Syrian rebel group operating around Damascus has executed 18 alleged members of the Islamic State group in a video mimicking the extremist organisation's own productions.Looking at the video Jaysh al-Islam is itself extremist, accusing ISIS of working with the Assad regime and also with Christians the same talking points ISIS often uses calling Christians and basically everyone not Sunni the enemy. Both Jaysh al-Islam and ISIS are Sunni groups. And they are killing each other for being the wrong kind of Sunni. The entire video is here for the time being. Please pass the popcorn. More frames below the fold, some are graphic. Update: The above link to the video is dead, its availible by request here.
The video, which emerged overnight, shows fighters from Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) wearing the orange prison clothes that IS victims often sport. The IS prisoners however are wearing black clothes and chained together wearing ankle and hand shackles with metal balls attached. The nearly 20-minute production mimics many aspects of IS's own execution videos, with similar sound effects and visuals. Jaysh al-Islam fighters in the video say the IS forces are being executed in part as revenge for the deaths of at least three of the rebel group's members who were beheaded by IS
On again, and as the recently and sadly deceased Fouad Ajami taught me, those are the lands of "I against my brother; my brother and I against our cousin; and my cousin, my brother, and I against the stranger.
