In screenshots from a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “The Making of Illusion," ISIS celebrates the first day of the Muslim holy time of Eid al-Adha by slaughtering men like lambs. Eid al-Adha celebrates when Allah stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son and gave him a lamb to slaughter instead. The video was released on September 12 from "Wilayat al-Khayr," aka the Deir ez-Zor area of Syria.
