ISIS Members Butcher Their Parents
The heinous butchering of parents and relatives has been a frequent practice among extremist groups. The world today has been an eyewitness to many of these acts. The extremists typically lure the young and common man into slaying their parents over ISIS political agenda. The following are examples of such acts.
Twin Men Butcher Mom to Death and Critically Injure Father and Young Brother
The The Daily Mail and other news networks reported that on the morning of June 25, 2016, the city of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia woke up to the horrifying news woke up to the horrifying news that twin brothers had butchered their mother and stabbed their father and older brother because they tried to stop them joining ISIS. The twenty-year-old twins, Khalid and Saleh Al Areeni, killed their mother and stabbed their father and brother while in their home, the Saudi Arabian government said. Investigations revealed that they lured their mother to the storeroom and stabbed her several times. The spokesman said the twins “used a cleaver and sharp knives” in the attack.
The pair chased their older brother to a rooftop where they stabbed him after they attacked their father. They were both rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The twins then stole a car and fled. They were later arrested about 60 miles from the Riyadh. The crime was also published in al- Arabiya News.
Al-Alam News (Arabic), reported that such an act was not the first-time children killing their parents, relatives, and neighbors. They stated:
An ISIS member shot his cousin in the province of al-Shamly, Saudi Arabia.
Another ISIS member killed his father, who reported him to the police for being affiliated with them. As the police forces approached their house, the son murdered the father, while he was shouting, “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,” (God is the Greatest, God is the Greatest).
Can anyone imagine that a Muslim would yell such a decree as he is slaying his Muslim father? The answer is just, no. A legal authority appointed by a state is required, after an exhaustive effort, to issue a verdict on the removal on any soul.
In yet another crime, Al-Alam News said an ISIS member slew his Uncle, Rashed al-Sufian, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for working as a secret service agent for the government.
The same news source reported that the Jordanian magazine, Sawsanah, reported that an ISIS member shot his father 30 times for refusing to pledge allegiance to an ISIS leader.
