Are we going to accommodate in Islam the most heinous crimes as verified and reported by 120 scholars from around the world as listed in the article just because of the sufferings of the Muslims at various regions in the word - brutal and enduring occupation of Israel, America's barrage of vetoes in its favour, its full fledged wars against two Muslim lands with colossal loss of life and destruction and so forth.
I am afraid you are mixing up religion with politics and not acting as a witness to the Islamic message to humanity. No amount of sufferings to the Muslim community can justify the list of crimes IN THE NAME of Islam. This is what I believe as Muslim. Here is the full list of ISIS crimes as summarized from the letter to its chief from 120 Islamic scholars from around the world tabled in my article referenced below:
Doctoring the interpretation of the verse 21:107 which reads ‘We have sent you as a mercy to all the worlds. ’(Al-Anbiya’,22: 107), He quotes: “We have sent you (with a sword) as a mercy to all the worlds”
Killing thousands of prisoners
Killing 600 unarmed captives at el-Zor.
Destroying churches, and looting the homes and properties of the Christians.
Killing some Christian civilians and forcing many others to flee their homes with nothing but their lives and the clothes on their backs.
Fighting the Yazidis under the banner of jihad though they neither fought you nor Muslims.
Giving the choice to Yazidiz to either convert to Islam or be killed.
Killing hundreds of Yazidiz and burying them in mass graves.
Had it not been for American and Kurdish intervention, tens of thousands of their men, women, children and elderly would have been killed.
Coercing everyone living under their control in every matter, great or small, even in matters which are between the individual and God.
Engaging children in war and killing. Some are taking up arms and others are playing with the severed heads of their victims.
“Implementing Hudud (amputation) punishment without exercising utmost restraint and extending it to minor offences as well, which defy the spirit of the Qur’an and Sharia Law.
As per eye witnesses and their own claims) torturing and terrorizing people through beatings; murder, burying alive, decapitation with knives
Committing massacres — their fighters mock those they are about to kill by telling them that they will be killed like sheep, bleating and then indeed butchering them like sheep. Not satisfied with mere killing; they add humiliation, debasement and mockery to it.
Not only have they mutilated corpses, they have stuck the decapitated heads of their victims on spikes and rods and kicked their severed heads around like balls and broadcast it to the world during the World Cup.
Jeering at corpses and severed heads and broadcasting these gruesome acts from the military bases they overran in Syria.
· Tying Syrian soldiers of the 17th Division in North-eastern Syria to barbed wire, cut off the heads of some of them with knives and posting a video of this on the internet …’.
