WATCH: ISIS Mass Coptic Christian Beheading Execution Video

The Islamic State has released a new video allegedly showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya. Watch the graphic video above.

Media companies like Al Jazeera have vowed not to air the video in its entirety and we agree. But video stills of the massacre are available beyond what this short Vine shows.

Al-Jazeera reports that the men perpetrating the mass beheading are taking revenge for “Muslim women persecuted by Coptic crusaders in Egypt.”

Crusaders is a term for “Christians” in Muslim theology, alluding to the Medieval reconquering of the Middle East by European Christians that ended around 1300.

Oddly enough, prior to the Muslim Crusades of around 800, Egypt was a majority Coptic Christian country.

UPDATE 2/17/15: Following the release of this video, ISIS has released another video showing the parading of 17 Kurish Peshmerga in cages around Mosul, Iraq. Watch that video in full here.

What a joke

Don’t waste people’s time pretending to show the video if it’s actually the worst clip available online. Based on that and the layout of the site, you obviously just want ad revenue. You aren’t a writer or journalist – you’re a wannabe.

I agree. Throughout history, certain people have been rallying support to kill or remove other people that, are in the way of their monetary interest(s) by calling Native Americans, savages, suppressing African-Americans, using Chinese as railroad slave (really cheap labor), killing mexicans to gain more territory in Texas and other areas. I can go on but, you get the point. Who has prevented you from living the simple life your ancestors once lived with being self sufficient? The same people who are taxing every move you make.
