WATCH: ISIS Crucifies Alleged Spy

A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows an an alleged spy being crucified, like Jesus on the Cross. A jihadist carries out the crucifying. The video is called “Deterrence of the Spies 1,” alluding to the fact that there may be a follow-up to the crucified man’s situation, possibly another spy getting crucified or worse.

The video begins with an interview with a masked jihadist, who explains the charges against the alleged spy. The camera then cuts to the “spy,” who looks disheveled and sleep deprived. He is then escorted from his prison cell and strung up on a cross. A sword-bearing jihadist then walks up with a sword and nearly severs his right hand at the wrist.

Rumor of ISIS carrying out the ancient punishment of crucifixion have circled the internet since their rise, but as of yet there had been no video or photographic evidence of the practice. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, crucifixion was first described in ancient Persia when “Darius I, king of Persia, crucified 3,000 political opponents in Babylon.”

If the above video gets pulled, uncensored screengrabs are available here.

That’s not a crucifixion, that’s someone tied to a cross by a pack of morons. A Roman-style crucifixion is both a slow, painful means of execution and the body is left to rot as a warning to those that would challenge Rome. This isn’t remotely close to the Roman method of nailing someone to a cross.

That you are showing this video and saying it was ‘caught’ on camera is pretty disgusting. These disgusting arseholes relished filming this sick act and they are relying on morons like you to circulate it for them. There is reporting and then there is this – stop giving these sickos publicity!
