Aggressively enforcing their interpretation of Shariah law, Islamic State militants have released a new graphic video (which I will not link to) showing two alleged thieves in Western Syria blindfolded, bound, and flanked by members of the terror group as each has a hand chopped off with a meat cleaver. The video released on Saturday shows a propagandist for IS explaining the punishment to onlookers before their hands are severed. The amputations took place in Welayat Homs, a city that's controlled by radical Islamic jihadists. IS' propaganda videos are not only being used as strategic recruiting tools, but are also designed to illicit intervention from the West to usher in the End Times.
Women and children are not exempted from amputation according to IS' interpretation of Shariah. In March, four boys aged 12 to 16 had their hands amputated in Mosul. One boy was accused of stealing a toy bird.
