Sign around his neck accuses him of apostasy – abandoning his religion

Urfa, Turkey – The radical group of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) executed a 17-year-old media activist in the city of al-Bab in Aleppo province, northern Syria, sources in the city reported on Friday. Activists from the city of al-Bab published pictures of Abdullah al-Bushi, 17, crucified in the city near Mansheya roundabout, with a board placed on his chest reading his name, saying “guilty of filming IS headquarters in al-Bab for the amount of 500 Turkish lira”.

According to the IS if the offender is sentenced for apostasy, the charged must be publicly executed and crucified for three days in public.

Speaking to ARA News, the civil rights activist Darius Darwish said that this behaviour is a “terrorist and criminal act”. “Such crimes intend to target media workers and activists and prevent them from carrying out media work which exposes their brutal practices,” Darwish said.

“Leaving the victim’s dead body for three days is meant to terrorise other journalists and media activists in the first place, s well as the residents of the city,” he added. “These barbarians (in reference to IS militants) will not hesitate to kill and crucify any media activist who tries to convey the reality of their brutality.”

The Islamic State’s use of crucifixion as a punishment stems from its fundamentalist interpretation of  Verse 33 of the fifth book of the Koran.

The verse reads: ‘Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land.’

‘That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.’

Despite this, ISIS chooses to ignore the next passage which emphasises forgiveness and removes the imperative to use such a punishment, saying: ‘Except for those who return [repenting] before you apprehend them. And know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.’

Raqqa’s central square has been bathed in blood since the terror group fully seized control of the city earlier in the year. Severed heads are regularly displayed impaled on spikes surrounding a small patch of grass in the square, and there are a number of wooden and metal crosses standing ready for the next execution.
