Islamic State Burns Chained Iraqi Shiite Fighters Alive
For peaceful purposes. After all, these pious pyromaniacs of the “prophet” are simply following “the footsteps of Allah’s Messenger … in his harshness towards the disbelievers” …
Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless …”
Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”

But as is so often the case with hadith, there is also a contradictory one — supporting the view that these sayings were fabricated by competing factions among Muslims, and have no historical value. Muhammad is depicted as saying that those who don’t answer the call to prayer should be set on fire, along with their houses: ‘Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.’ (Bukhari 1.11.626)
Then there is this gruesome story from Muhammad’s conquest of Khaybar: ‘Kinana b. al-Rabi`, who had the custody of the treasure of B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (T. was brought) to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, ‘Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?’ he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-Awwam, ‘Torture him until you extract what he has,’ so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud.’ (Ibn Ishaq 515).
Islamic apologists never, ever explain the data that contradicts their positions. They just ignore it. That is what distinguishes them as deceivers rather than reformers.
‘IS burns four Iraqi Shiite fighters alive,’ AFP, August 31, 2015:
The Islamic State group strung up four Iraqi Shiite fighters with chains and burned them alive, according to footage posted online, the latest gruesome execution video from the jihadists.
The victims — identified as fighters in the pro-government Popular Mobilisation forces from southern Iraq — were suspended from a swingset by chains attached to their hands and feet, then set on fire.
IS, which overran large parts of Iraq last year and still controls much of the country’s west, said the murders were in revenge for the alleged burning of four men by pro-government forces.
“Now retribution has come, for today, we will attack them as they attacked us, and punish them as they punished us,” a masked militant says in the video, which was not dated and did not say where the burnings took place.
The video included a clip said to show a Sunni man suspended over a fire while still alive as pro-government forces look on, and another of famous Shiite fighter Abu Azrael (“Father of the Angel of Death”) slicing a piece of flesh off a burned corpse with a sword….
