A former radicalized Muslim who as a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization took part in terror strikes is warning that the current crop of radicalized Muslims no longer is satisfied with bloody beheadings and crucifixions.
They want something worse.
If you can imagine it, much worse.
The punishment they are seeking calls for the insertion of a spike through the victim’s rectum.
The report comes from Walid Shoebat, a blogger, author, speaker and commentator on the Muslim world.
He explains he was a PLO member who was recruited to plant a bomb in Bethlehem, and he spent time in prison. He was sent to America in 1978, where he was recruited at a hotel “terror conference” by Jamal Said, the founder of the Islamic Association of Palestine.
“This was in the early 1980s when I was being trained for jihad activities in the U.S.A. along with many other young foreigners as well as U.S. citizens,” he explains.
But with his adoption of Christianity, he left his terror activities behind.
He reports he found the demand for the excruciating punishment in an online video, which later was removed from the Web.
In it, a Muslim woman who is making a complaint to Caliph al-Baghdadi of ISIS argues that beheadings and shootings are just too humane.
She suggests, instead, the ancient Ottoman method of execution be used, specifically on Jordanian pilot Moaz Kasasbeh, who was captured by Islamic radicals recently.
“Everyone in the Middle East knows three things told to them by their grandparents about the Ottoman Turks and what they spread throughout the Middle East: Sihr ‘sorcery,’ baksheesh’ bribery,’ and the Khasouk which is a spike driven through the victim’s rectum, which the Ottomans used to terrify locals and deter potential insurgents. And this is exactly what this lady wanted to reinstitute,” Shoebat wrote.
He quoted from the now-vanished video, saying the woman asked: “Are you going to execute him with a merciful bullet? Or are you going to execute him with a merciful knife? … Khasouk ‘impale him’ she cries out ‘then send him to his mother.'”
Shoebat notes that in the video, the woman says: “Why are the Arab world fighting us. We are Muslim doing the will of Allah. I am pleading [ISIS] to honor my special request that you Khazouk him ‘impale him’ and post it all over the social networks and the media.”
He said that as “we learned in school, the Ottomans were creative when it came to all sorts of weirdities.”
“At times they used the hot poker, a red hot metal rod that is inserted through the anus which the expert executioner is able to avoid puncturing the heart and the victim could live up to two days before he dies since the bleeding is minimized as the hot rod cauterizes the wound,” he explained. “To this lady, the Khazouk is no fantasy, she is serious. The West does not understand such tradition as a Muslim woman making such an appeal.”
